Deloitte Fast 500: CEOs of Seattle’s fastest growing companies share their secrets of success

Innovation is more critical now than ever. It is not simply a matter of the latest technology or trend but rather about solving human problems, of which there’s no shortage these days. From income inequality to COVID-19 to social injustice, this is indeed a time of disruption, the perfect theater for innovative ideas and solutions to take center stage. 

Our region has a long history of innovation. The first backpack, online bookstore, kidney dialysis machines, vinyl records, and only one of two states to pass board diversity legislation: these are just a few innovations that the Pacific Northwest region has pioneered over many years. 

It is perhaps due to this rich tradition of combined technological innovation and social progress that makes the future of the Pacific Northwest even more promising. Emerging growth companies, a bright spot in our economy, are popping up by the dozens and remain a driving force

The most detailed and most rapid survey of the southern sky has helped map about a million previously undiscovered galaxies. Using the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder radio telescope, scientists from the CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, have cut the time to complete such an intense survey of space from years to less than two weeks.

In a study, published in the journal Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia on Monday, the first results from the CSIRO’s Rapid ASKAP Continuum Survey are reported. The agency describes the survey as like a “Google Map” of the universe, providing the most detailed atlas of the southern sky yet. 

The key to the new atlas is ASKAP, which

Fastest Emerging-Market Rotation in a Decade Seen Far From Over

(Bloomberg) — Emerging-market investors are switching to value stocks and away from growth ones at the fastest pace in more than a decade, and some say the trend may last up to another 12 months.

The rotation trade triggered by progress toward a coronavirus vaccine and the U.S. election will favor equities in countries such as Mexico and Indonesia over places like China and Taiwan, according to AMP Capital Investors. Eastspring Investments is betting on South Africa where shares have lagged behind their peers this year, while UBS Wealth Management says the switch toward value may last for up to a year.

Scientists clock the fastest interval of time in ‘zeptoseconds’

Blink and you’ll definitely miss it.

Scientists have measured the shortest interval of time ever recorded, clocking how long it takes a particle of light to cross a single molecule of hydrogen.

The ultra-quick journey took 247 zeptoseconds, according to a team of German researchers, with a zeptosecond representing a trillionth of a billionth of a second. This is equivalent to the number 1 written behind a decimal point and 20 zeroes.

The findings are the culmination of global efforts to measure shorter and shorter time spans in physics, and they offer scientists a way to precisely measure atomic changes through what’s known as the photoelectric effect.

Albert Einstein proposed a theory of the photoelectric effect in 1905, describing the phenomenon in which electrons can be ejected from atoms after they are hit by light. In 1999, an Egyptian chemist, Ahmed Zewail, used ultrashort laser pulses to observe how molecules
