    I’m looking forward to joining the panelists this afternoon and posing some of your questions. I’ve looked through all the questions submitted during registration, and I see seven arenas where more than one person are interested in discussion. Important: The panelists won’t necessarily cover all of this ground. I just like to summarize the direction of your questions before we get into the room –
