(KOLN) official website -As JEOPARDY! remembers and celebrates the life of Alex Trebek, the show announced on Monday that it will resume production on Nov. 30. Though a long-term replacement host will not be named at this time, JEOPARDY! will return to the studio with a series of interim guest hosts from within the JEOPARDY! family, starting with Ken Jennings. Earlier this year, Jennings claimed the title of JEOPARDY!’s Greatest of All Time in an epic primetime event; he also holds the all-time records for most consecutive games won (74) and highest winnings in regular-season play ($2,520,700). Additional guest hosts will be announced in the weeks ahead. “Alex believed in the importance of JEOPARDY! and always said that he wanted the show to go on after him,” said JEOPARDY!

Goldman Sachs is being forced to open a new stock-trading hub in Paris, due to uncertainty surrounding Brexit and London’s future as a European center for the trading of equities. The investment-banking giant announced on Tuesday that it would open the new hub before the end of the year, pending regulatory approval. The facility, Sigma X Europe, will be an additional offering to an original, U.K.-based platform called Sigma X. The Paris facility will begin trading shares in companies across 15 European markets regulated under the European Union’s framework, while Sigma X in London will continue listing both U.K. and EU stocks. “We want to ensure that our clients continue to have access to all of our key liquidity sources post-Brexit,” said Liz Martin, Goldman Sachs’s global co-head of futures and equities electronic trading. So, why is Goldman Sachs — like others in the financial-exchanges business — opening new facilities in the EU? When the U.K. completes its exit from the EU on Dec. 31, at the end of the Brexit transition period, it will lose access to the bloc and be automatically excluded from the regulatory framework that has facilitated pan-European stock trading in London.
