The USA’s accounting watchdog has fined KPMG $7.7m (£6.3m) and sanctioned four of its auditors over a series of international offences, including its failure to properly deal with a widespread UK cheating scandal.

The watchdog claimed hundreds of KPMG’s UK staff cheated on exams, including the tests auditors are required to pass to maintain their professional certifications.

The US Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) fined KPMG $2m over claims the firm’s UK business failed to detect or prevent the widespread sharing of answers from 2018 to 2021.

The Big Four firm’s UK business was hit with another $600,000 fine over claims it failed to properly supervise its unregulated Romanian affiliate in its work on four separate audits.

The regulator said the unregistered Romanian arm carried out 74 per cent of all work on the audits, as it claimed KPMG falsely stated that an entirely separate PCAOB-registered business had instead carried out the audit work.

KPMG’s UK chief executive Jon Holt said the Big Four firm has “since put additional monitoring measures in place” to prevent answer sharing from happening again.

“I am determined that we work to the highest ethical standards for our clients and the communities we serve,” Holt said.

KPMG’s UK head of audit Cath Burnet said the firm has also “reviewed the way we work with other firms” in its network to prevent any repeats of the Romanian audit scandal.  

Alongside the UK charges, the US watchdog also fined KPMG a further $4m over claims its Colombian business altered audit documents ahead of two separate PCAOB inspections and also failed to prevent exam cheating.

The scandal saw three of KPMG’s Colombian staff permanently banned from working in accounting firms and fined sums of $25,000 each.

KPMG was also hit with another $1m fine over claims a partner in its Indian business signed off dozens of blank audit papers before they were even filled out, meaning he failed to check whether they had been completed properly.

The watchdog also hit the partner responsible, Sagar Lakhani, with a $75,000 fine and a one-year ban, as it ruled he had failed to properly supervise his team members.

“These actions should send the message to KPMG and all other registered firms that the PCAOB is committed to rooting out misconduct wherever it occurs and will employ all sanctions at its disposal to protect investors and Boost audit quality,” PCAOB chair Erica Williams said.

The fines come as the Big Four accounting firms have faced a series of fines from watchdogs worldwide over various exam cheating scandals.

In June, the US Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) fined Ernst & Young (EY) a record $100m over claims its auditors cheated on ethics exams.

PwC in February was also fined a combined sum of £670,000 by US and Canadian regulators over a cheating scandal, after KPMG was fined $50m last year by the SEC for similar offences.

Killexams : Pakistan v England Test series analysis and betting pointers

Ahead of England's Test series in Pakistan, Richard Mann reflects on last summer and ponders what betting lessons can be gleaned for this tour.


Improved England Test match bankers?

England began last summer with much to prove and many questions to answer, but ended it with six wins from seven Tests, series victories over New Zealand and South Africa, and a captain and coach combination that could yet take them to the top of the world rankings.

It was a remarkable turnaround. Many of the summer's stars are the same players who struggled so badly in the latter stages of Joe Root’s captaincy, as he battled with the impossible job of holding the fort through a pandemic in which England’s cricketers undoubtably suffered more than their international counterparts.

With the world getting back to normal, crowds having returned and bio-secure bubbles seemingly a thing of the past, England’s players have thrived under the new, empowering leadership team of Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum.

And that confidence has been mirrored in the betting, with England hovering around the even-money mark in the build-up to the final Test of last summer against South Africa at the Oval, just as they were when taking on India in their rearranged Test at Edgbaston in July.

Much of that confidence came off the back of the three stunning run chases England produced in their series whitewash over New Zealand and, on results alone, it’s hard to argue with England being chalked up as strong favourites in the near future – though in Pakistan conditions will be much different.

England displayed some frailties in the summer, too, and the Stokes/McCullum ride is very much a rollercoaster experience.

It’s worth remembering that they were a long way behind in all three Tests against New Zealand before turning those matches, and the odds, upside down, while things weren’t looking too rosy when Rishabh Pant and Ravi Jadeja took them to the sword in the first innings against India at Edgbaston.

Even in the series win over South Africa, the three one-sided Tests – two won by England and one by the tourists – saw plenty of ups and downs for Stokes’ men, along with notable market fluctuations. England were matched at 3.95 when South Africa were going well in their second innings, before the hosts eventually went on to seal a facile nine-wicket victory.

England had only managed 158 in their first innings of that match, and only 165 and 149 at Lord’s when conditions were tricky for batting in the series opener.

As such, while betting England at home proved profitable business in the summer, something which might well continue, the way this side plays its cricket suggests those willing to chance their arm at big prices in-running might enjoy even greater rewards.

I do think conditions are crucial to this team, too. The bowling is very solid, and if and when the likes of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood return to provide some genuine pace, the depth and variety in the fast-bowling department will match any side in the world. The need for a world-class spinner remains, but there's variety among the quicks.

The batting is more interesting. When the going has been good, like at Trent Bridge and Headingley, England’s aggressive batting line-up was unstoppable. When the clouds rolled in for three of their four innings at Lord’s this year, and the ball swung, they were found wanting and collapsed badly.

When conditions allow, England’s batting should continue to be very, very good. When the going is tough, it might make for grim viewing.

England begin a three-match Test series with Pakistan this week, and we should learn more in the coming weeks, but Australia pulled off a brilliant series win on these shores only a few months ago and, surprisingly, it was with pace and reverse swing that they prospered, less so spin.

With the likes of Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf in the home attack, reverse swing should provide England with a stern examination, much the way conventional swing did against New Zealand at Lord’s, so don’t be surprised if wickets fall in clusters and we see the odd low score – particularly in the second innings when conditions start to deteriorate.

That’s what makes this current England side so interesting and such a dilemma when it comes to playing the outright match market.

Where is the top batsman value?

As I argued all summer, the value in the top batsman markets was with the middle and lower order.

New Zealand’s Daryl Mitchell made three centuries in as many Tests from number five, while Jonny Bairstow made four in four Tests before tailing off against South Africa and then missing the Oval due to injury.

Joe Root’s summer went the same way, but he top-scored for England four times in seven Tests, (first and second innings included), Bairstow thrice, while there were wins for Ben Foakes and a two-way dead-heat success for Stuart Broad.

England’s middle order has been its strength for a long time, and its drop in productivity from five down was a big reason the side struggled at the end of Root’s era.

The return to form of Bairstow was a big plus, while Stokes insisting Root stays at number four is another, and when next summer comes around, I’ll want to be with the middle order again, given how challenging it is facing the new Dukes ball in England.

But what about in Pakistan? In that aforementioned home series against Australia, it was actually the top order who dominated, making best use of some flat pitches before reverse swing and spin became a factor later in the piece.

Openers Usman Khawaja and Abdullah Shafique were the top two runscorers in that series, making three centuries and three fifties between them, and coming into the series in fine form, middle-order rocks Travis Head and Fawad Alam made little impact.

PAKISTAN V ENGLAND SERIES PREVIEW

That suggests we might have to change our approach to betting England’s batsmen in Pakistan, and don’t overlook Zak Crawley who came through a testing home summer with an impressive 69 not out at the Oval, giving him two wins in the top England batsman market across the seven Tests.

Crawley has had little respect from the layers all year, but it has been sideways movement that has caused him problems, and he might just have the game to prosper when getting first crack on wickets that are generally good for batting early in the match.

His struggles India in early 2021 might put people off, but I don’t think he has as much worry about on that score as Ollie Pope, the latter appearing to have no plan against first Ravi Ashwin and then Nathan Lyon in the Ashes.

Root is an excellent player of spin, but his price is rarely big enough to warrant a bet, while reverse swing promises to prove a big test for others in the England line-up. Crawley's strong leg-side game should help him in that regard.

As such, the Kent man could represent the value.

Muddied waters in top bowler market

The top England bowler market is hard to get a handle on, particularly with attentions now turning to Pakistan.

James Anderson and Stuart Broad once again confirmed last summer that they remain potent forces despite their advancing years, with Anderson finishing the summer with 27 wickets at an average of 17.66, Broad 29 at 27.17.

After a slower start, Broad claimed three two-way ties in the top first innings England bowler market to underline the point that even when he isn’t at the top of his game, he will always take wickets.

However, in claiming 12 wickets in only two matches, twice winning the top England bowler market, Ollie Robinson returned with a bang, and he might well be the man to back going forward particularly if the market continues to favour Anderson. Broad misses this series having welcomed his first child in accurate days.

Pakistan will provide a different challenge for Robinson, and we’ve yet to really see him bowling reverse swing, something Anderson appeared to have mastered when outstanding in India and Sri Lanka the winter before last.

Wood’s extra pace and low trajectory will be very handy in Pakistan, but he missed the T20 World Cup final because of injury and remains under a cloud, while Jack Leach has questions to answer given he will start the series as England’s number one spinner despite only picking up two wickets in three Tests against South Africa.

Plenty will be expected of Leach, by his captain and traders alike, but aside from his Man of the Match display at Headingley, he made little impact in what was a particularly dry spell in England, and it’s worth noting that Stokes, with one outright win and two two-way ties, claimed more wickets than Leach last summer.

Stokes is an excellent exponent of reverse swing and is set to play as the third seamer in England's starting XI, meaning the big prices usually on offer about him in this market might be worth taking.

Killexams : England arrives in Islamabad for first test series in Pakistan since 2005

England's team arrived in Islamabad early Sunday to play its first test series in Pakistan since 2005.

Led by Ben Stokes, England will kick off the tour in Rawalpindi -- an adjacent city to Islamabad -- which hosts the first test from next Thursday.

The second test will be played at Multan from Dec. 9-13 before England round off the tour with the final test at Karachi from Dec. 17-21.

England had played a seven-match T20 series in Pakistan prior to the T20 World Cup in Australia where it went on to beat Pakistan in the final.

England was due to tour Pakistan last year before the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates but abandoned the tour due to security concerns after New Zealand had aborted its tour to Pakistan just minutes before the toss in the first ODI at Rawalpindi.

There were some concerns over England's test tour to Pakistan after former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was wounded in Wazirabad, a district in eastern Punjab province, during his protest against the sitting government.

"It's been a long time since England have played test in Pakistan," Stokes had said in Abu Dhabi last Friday where the team trained for a week before flying out to Pakistan.

"With what happened with Imran Khan recently, there was a little bit of concern, but we have Reg Dickason, who has been the security man for many years with England, and we left it in his capable hands."

Last Monday Khan had met with the Pakistan Board chairman Ramiz Raja and British High Commissioner in Lahore and assured the officials that his protest against the government will not disturb England cricket team's tour to Pakistan.

Pakistan had hosted England twice in a test series at UAE over the last 17 years with foreign teams reluctant to travel to Pakistan after the Sri Lanka cricket team was attacked in Lahore in 2009.

However, since 2015 Pakistan has started regaining the confidence of foreign countries that it could organize international games at home and have hosted almost all the major cricketing nations, including South Africa and Australia.

The three-test series will be part of World Test Championship where Pakistan is sitting in fifth place while England is seventh. Pakistan needs to win the three-test series to keep its hopes alive for next year's final.

Pakistan will be without its key fast bowler Shaheen Afridi, who has been ruled out of the series due to knee injury. The home team has also dropped middle-order batter Fawad Alam and ace leg-spinner Yasir Shah due to poor form.

Uncapped fast bowlers Haris Rauf and Mohammad Ali have been called up to the squad along with mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed, who is expected to make his debut during the series.

England also has injury concerns ahead of the first test with fast bowler Mark Wood in doubt due to a hip injury. Stuart Broad has been given paternity leave from the tour as England will be banking on its experienced fast bowler James Anderson to trouble Pakistan batters.

England has included 18-year-old Leicestershire allrounder Rehan Ahmed in the squad after originally drafting him as a net bowler for the tour.

Squad: Ben Stokes (capt), Harry Brook, Joe Root, Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Ben Duckett, Liam Livingstone, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Keaton Jennings, Jack Leach, James Anderson, Jamie Overton, Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood, Rehan Ahmed.

Killexams : See the 25-slide pitch deck a Baltimore biotech used to raise $56 million to develop a blood test that detects recurring cancer
  • A Baltimore biotech startup has raised $56 million to develop a cancer blood test.
  • Haystack Oncology's test looks for lingering traces of cancer in patients after they're treated.
  • The company hopes that finding these cancer fragments can help doctors treat recurrences early.

Haystack Oncology has raised $56 million in a Series A round to continue development of its cancer blood test in 2023, the startup said Wednesday.

The Baltimore biotech says it has a blood test that can find tiny, lingering traces of cancer in patients who've already had cancer and received treatment. Haystack says its test can detect minimal residual disease, or when patients have only a tiny number of cancer cells left in their body. Those cancerous cells shed small pieces of their DNA into the bloodstream, and Haystack's test is designed to detect those molecules. That can help doctors provide earlier treatments for patients and, the company hopes, prevent cancer recurrence.

The chances of cancer coming back vary widely by the type of tumor. One of Haystack's first studies was in colon cancer, where 30% to 40% of patients typically have a recurrence. Other cancers like glioblastoma and ovarian cancer have far higher recurrence rates, where the vast majority of patients' cancer comes back. 

Haystack's founders include Bert Vogelstein, an influential genomics researcher at Johns Hopkins who has spent more than two decades researching better ways to detect cancer earlier. Haystack CEO Dan Edelstein said the company was helping realize that grand vision.

"If you detect cancer early enough, you can provide a patient with interventions that can lead to a cure for that patient and change the number of patients being diagnosed with late-stage disease," Edelstein told Insider.

Haystack's blood test, called a liquid biopsy, can find signs of cancer that aren't detectable by imaging like CT scans. The test is also personalized to each individual, by first sequencing a key part of a patient's genome and tailoring the test for that person's cancer.

Haystack CEO Dan Edelstein said the Series A round would fund the firm's plans to launch the test as a CLIA validated assay in 2023 — meaning a doctor could order it for patients but it wouldn't have gone through the Food and Drug Administration's full approval process. Edelstein declined to disclose Haystack's valuation or the amount of money it had raised before this Series A.

Catalio Capital Management, a life-sciences venture-capital firm, helped create Haystack and led the Series A financing. Last December, Haystack was named to Insider's list of 34 healthcare and biotech startups set to take off in 2022.

Killexams : England’s Test series in Pakistan is about more than just cricket

When the opening batsman faces the first ball of tomorrow’s Test series between Pakistan and England in Rawalpindi on the outskirts of Islamabad, it will represent far more than just another five-day cricket match.

Pakistani cricket has long been dogged by the shadow of security fears, but that has faded of late and the proud nation will host England, a side so many locals have been looking forward to witnessing in their stadia. 

Here are the main talking points ahead of this hugely significant Test series.

Cricket symbolism

England haven’t toured Pakistan for a Test series since 2005 – when the likes of Michael Vaughan, Paul Collingwood, Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Flintoff were gracing the creases under Duncan Fletcher – and it was way over a decade between their last last tour in the country and autumn’s Twenty20 series.

This, then, represents a symbolic return for England to the cricket-mad nation and a move towards more regular Test series in Pakistan.

The Shaheens have hosted Australia, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and the West Indies in the last two years but England represent a different beast: a team who will go after Pakistan – and the host nation will enjoy going after England, too.

History suggests that the Test series may be a bit of a dud. England have toured Pakistan multiple times since the 1950s and have drawn 18 of the 24 matches, winning two to the host nation’s four.

So although the statistics indicate that the sides could be in for a lacklustre series, everybody is hoping it will be anything but.

The Pakistani fans have made their welcome to the travelling nation known and there’s almost a feeling of the cricket being the winner despite any result, though everybody knows that’s not the case when push comes to shove.

Swat it long

The bright new era of Test cricket in England has seen a side under Ben Stokes and coach Brendon McCullum fight to score off every ball. 

It hasn’t been perfect but, on the whole, it has produced good results. England have beaten South Africa, New Zealand and India this year but have done so on home soil. How they cope away from hope on the pitches of Pakistan will be a new challenge. 

“It’s a completely different team we’re playing against, in completely different conditions. It’s about adapting when we get out there,” bowler James Anderson said yesterday.

“We don’t know how it’s going to play. Traditionally it is flat [the wicket]. We’ll come out and try to win the game. We might have to be creative in how we do that.”

Down and out

England, for all of their depth and prowess, will be without both Stuart Broad and Mark Wood for the opening Test tomorrow.

Broad remained in the United Kingdom to ensure he was present for the early months of his child’s life, who was born last week.

Wood is with the cricket squad in Pakistan but misses the opening five-day match due to an ongoing hip injury.

The duo are key to England’s bowling attack but that won’t stop the touring side going after the Pakistani batting line up.

“With the ball we’re trying to take wickets,” paceman Anderson added. “The captain and coach have made that quite clear – every time you run in to bowl it’s about taking wickets. It’s not about controlling the run-rate, it’s about how we’re going to get 20 wickets.”

A foreign tour is a mindset shift for England but they’re unbeaten in Test series this summer and will want to see themselves thrive against tough opposition in some of the harshest cricketing conditions on the planet.

Killexams : Jeannie Mai Jenkins Reflects on 'America's Test Kitchen' Hosting Gig: 'Food Is a Great Connector'

Jeannie Mai Jenkins America’s Test Kitchen: The Next Generation

Patrick Daly/Amazon Freevee

Jeannie Mai Jenkins has always had an affinity for cooking — and now she has an outlet to express that love.

The former The Real co-host appeared on Monday's episode of the PEOPLE Every Day Podcast and opened up to host Janine Rubenstein about enjoying time in the kitchen and her new gig as host of America's Test Kitchen: The Next Generation.

"I have always loved to cook," she said in the podcast. "It's been something I've never actually been able to share because I never thought I was a good enough cook to even talk about it."

For Mai Jenkins, hosting the 10-episode series is changing that.

"When I heard about this show, that America's Test Kitchen scoured America for people at home in a basic kitchen with a basic budget, who just love to cook, I was like, 'Wait, that's me!'" she said.

Premiering on Amazon Freevee on Dec. 9, the series follows 11 home chefs from around the nation, who will compete in various challenges. At the judges panel are ATK veterans, including Dan Souza, Elle Simone Scott, Jack Bishop and Julia Collin Davison. The best part? The winner will "become the latest face" of long-running America's Test Kitchen, get the chance to pen their own cookbook and win $100,000 to fund their own culinary business.

Mai Jenkins says watching the contestants hone their craft was the most rewarding part of the hosting gig.

"I really love that food was such a great connector of all of us," she said of meeting so many home chefs and tasting their creations. "If we just love to eat, then we can all join the table."

The Emmy Award-winning host revealed some of the craziest things she learned while hosting the new series.

"I thought I was going to get people like myself that can whip out, you know, basic, easy recipes. And then I saw Robbie over here putting a waist trainer on a chicken to make it prettier," she said of one of the chefs. She recalls thinking the chicken looked "sexy," like it could be "on the front of a magazine."

Another contestant, who is vegan, blew Mai Jenkins' mind when she put "beets into hummus" and turned it hot pink. "I was like, 'Oh, I didn't even know we could do that!" she said.

She also learned about the proper way to cut steak — "along the grain" — and that there is an art to how to present a meal. "I shopped for so many more dishes after I understood that all of it matters. All the details matter to make your dish just look like it's jumping off of the plate to be in your tummy," she added.

The show also gave Mai Jenkins and the competing chefs a chance to learn more about their collective backgrounds.

"Not only did I learn, not only was I inspired, but I was also filled in the heart, learning about everybody's culture," she said. "If you really think about it, we all cook based on either how we were raised or what our roots came from."

America's Test Kitchen: The Next Generation premieres Friday, December 9 on Amazon Freevee.

As part of its ongoing Consumer Main-Test Series, AV-Comparatives has released the results of its July to October 2022 Real-World Protection Test for consumer security solutions. 17 popular anti-malware programs were evaluated to assess their protection against Internet-borne threats.

The Real-World Protection Test conducted by AV-Comparatives mimics real-world conditions as experienced every day by users. The test accurately determined if each threat used was able to make any changes to the test system. To ensure that security programs do not confuse users with false alarms, AV-Comparatives also put all the products through a false-positives test. Programs with high levels of false alarms had their award levels reduced.

A total of 10 products reached the highest award level, ADVANCED+, in this Real-World Protection Test. These were (in alphabetical order): Avast, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, G Data, K7, Kaspersky, Microsoft, McAfee, VIPRE.

Like all AV-Comparatives' public reports, this Real-World Protection Test report can be read or downloaded free of charge, and without registration, from the lab's website:

Killexams : Advantest Introduces New inteXcell Series of High-Performance, Economical Test Cells for ...

TOKYO, Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation (TSE: 6857) has launched inteXcell, a new line of minimal-footprint test cells designed to address demanding final-test requirements presented by the increasing bit densities, lower power consumption and faster interface speeds of future memory devices. This new final test cell infrastructure integrates a T5835 memory tester optimized for use in high-productivity test cells and is designed to adopt future memory solutions. With inteXcell, ICs can be tested on the same platform from initial engineering through mass production.

inteXcell is the first ever fully integrated and unified test solution to combine broad test coverage with high-throughput handling in a highly flexible system architecture. Early units can test up to 1,536 devices in parallel with high speed and high accuracy.

The new test cells have a compact structure that enables up to 384 simultaneous measurements per cell and uses only one-third of the floor space occupied by conventional test systems. Since each cell uses independent asynchronous testing, inteXcell can be configured anywhere from one to four testers, enabling high equipment utilization and streamlined cell-based maintenance.

The inteXcell platform is expected to begin shipping to customers in the second quarter of 2023. Orders are now being taken by Advantest.
