    The BaBar, Belle, and LHCb collaborations have reported evidence for new physics in $B\to DI I1 2$ and $B\to D^*I I1 2$ of approximately $3.8If$. There is also the long lasting discrepancy of about $3If$ in the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, and the branching ratio for $I \toI1 4I1 2I1 2$ is $1.8If$ above the Standard Model expectation using the HFAG values.
