July 18 (Bloomberg) -- Imperial college in London is trialing the "iKnife"- a medical tool that detects cancer when it cuts through flesh.

Japan Wage Growth Stagnates
39:32 - Japan’s workers barely got a pay rise in 2015, with a 0.1 percent increase in cash earnings slower than the 0.4 percent bump in 2014.

Bloomberg’s James Mayger and UBS Head of Global Asset Allocation Mads Pedersen joined Bloomberg’s Manus Cranny and Anna Edwards on “Countdown” for further analysis.
