Places to Fly Fish

"Desportivo fly-fishing has become a favorite way for many urbanites to decompress. And that's how Chris Santillo started his fifty places recreation guides. He now also writes about places to paddle bicycle golf end snowboard, but his number one passion is fly fishing Chris thanks for joining US great to be here, Rick. Thanks what is it about fly fishing that those who know it and love it or so passionate about I've thought about this a lot oftentimes when I'm out on the river and I think that people come at it from a lot of different directions I. I think there's the chance to be out in nature in a quiet and beautiful place. There's an old saying that's trout don't live in ugly places and neither do bone Fisher Tarp in Atlantic Salmon. So you're usually in pretty pristine places that can support these fish species. About especially, if you're river fishing about being in the water, I don't mean to sound cliche but there is something about the oneness of being with the river in that sense of flow I drive a lot over mountains and past beautiful rivers in Europe and the United States and I see a lot of people with hip Bhutan standing deepen in the river and there is something. Special about that I would imagine you have there is a feeling of being. In the moment and in the flow of life of the rivers as a metaphor for flow of life and time passing, and it's never the same water that you're standing in and I think there is something profound rap subliminal about that that has an appeal There is an analytic. A fly fishing I think it has appealed to people the whole idea of trying to determine what the Fisher eating at a given time, and then trying to either look in your fly box and find the the right fly that seems to match the kind of bugs at the trout might eating or I know some friends will bring a fly tying vice in some feathers and hair and hooks to the side of a stream, and if they don't have what the right bug is at the time or the right fly, they will go and tie it. Up on the spot and hope that they're going to make that match matching the hatches, the term that writer named Ernie Schreiber came up with years ago the hatch being the kind of insect that is occurring on the river at that time but just having the arsenal and matching the flame with the others that are being eaten that's probably integral to being successful fly, Fisher and very important, and you'll find some anglers that are you know better equipped than others I've been out with some friends who will have literally five hundred or a thousand flies. I usually have one or two boxes and and hope that what I have. Oh, cover things ninety percent of the time, but there's always ten percent that doesn't work and one blanket work. Great. This morning in another flight would work great in the same hole this afternoon exactly because what happens on many river systems as you will have different sorts of insects emerging coming out of river or settling down upon the river at different times of the day you might have may flies that are. Popping up from the bottom of the river as Nymphs, and then turning into adult bugs and being on the surface in the morning, and that might be a white insect, the size of your Pinky Nail, and then in the afternoon as it gets warmer, the grasshoppers might become active and the wind may be him into the river and they are green and yellow, and they're the size of your thumb. It's sort of a a battle going on what are the it is it's man versus nature. Chris and Taylor has written a dozen best selling books about outdoor adventures in his fifty places series. One of his titles collects the thoughts of Passionate Anglers Y. I, fly fish and their favorite fishing places are covered in fifty more places to fly fish before you die you'll also see Chris's byline and major sport fishing publications.

Michele Mouton, Queen B of Group B

"Yeah. So today we're discussing Michelle. mouton. A woman. We've this is this the first time we've discussed a woman on the show. This might be the first episode dedicated to a lady. which is a bit embarrassing. I would say so yeah. But no better woman to start off this trend with and Michelle. She is easily one of the best rally drivers ever. She's a beast. So I'm really stoked that we can tell the story even if it took us a little while to get to it, that's on us but but it's interesting because motorsport is really one of the sports where women and men compete against each other as true like she's not the best. Female driver ever. She's one of the best rally drivers at. Yeah. Regardless of gender she's one of the greatest. and honestly like just watching a video of her rally driving makes me sweat. Over, yeah she's like she's the person who when we talk about. Like rally cars now are all-wheel-drive. Wheel drive. But when Audi showed up with quattro and just started smoking everybody that was Michelle. Meantime that was young Mouton Bay. mouton on the track. Yeah I mean. To your point James like drag racing of course is or was kind of dominated by women at one point all the force sisters were just tearing it up. There's really no reason. For it to be separated by gender in in Motor Sport Really of course right now there's the there's the W. series, which is a like a women's open-wheel series. At I think that's more for them to kind of get exposure and it proved themselves in like a formula car but I'm looking forward to seeing some of those drivers come up in the formula. One. Soon hopefully, it would just make it more interesting for crying out loud if nothing else I agree let's get into it a. all right. Let's fired up. All Right Michelle Mouton entered this world on June twenty third nineteen, fifty one in the French Riviera more specifically the idyllic town of grass cross grass Ross. The Idyllic town of Gross France, the perfume capital of the world grassi surrounded by fields of aromatic flowers and home to Francis. Oldest perfumery GALLIMARD. Look I'm friend by far French is the language that I have the hardest time pronouncing both words and names I apologize profusely to anyone with a modicum of sense of how to pronounce stuff I. Think you're doing great. I think I think here like right there. Thank you, Joe, unlike many drivers whose family have a history in the sport returns family made a living growing roses and jasmine for the perfume industry mouton spent her youth skiing doing ballet and excelling in school. But just beyond the flower fields sat the mountain. Stages used for local rallies and wouldn't be long before the engine notes trickling down into the valley beckoned to Michelle mcgann discovered her love of cars at fourteen years old when she would steal her father. Pierre's Citron to seavy and take it out for joyrides. Quote for me at the time a car always meant freedom and independence she said but driving wasn't something she could possibly see a future in it for anyone to envision that path for mere enjoyment to making something your life's purpose but you could argue this especially from. Models for women on the racing stage were few and far between. So after graduating high school Bhutan took up odd jobs working as a ski instructor, a Care Assistant in a home for the disabled and eventually at her father's insurance company until she began studying to be a lawyer but something unexpected would quickly put an end to that career path her entry into a competitive rock and roll dance contest.

The Urgent Need to Make Disciples - Matthew 28:19

"Matthew Chapter Twenty Eight. I nineteen. Go therefore. And make disciples of all nations. baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. So much, we can talk about here so much. We could pray based on just that that one verse in the Great Commission but I want us to pray. Based on one truth. And what? We just read that I think many people often miss. So when Jesus says, make disciples of all nations. That is not a general command to make disciples among as many people as possible. No, that's a specific command to make disciples of all nations Ponta ethnic of all the ethnic groups. Of all the peoples of the world. So Jesus told us to go to every ethnic group. Every people group in the world and make disciples there. So what that means is, if we are not working in our lives, our families and churches to take the Gospel. To people groups ethnic groups places where the Gospel is not yet gone. Then we are disobeying the Great Commission. Disregarding what Jesus is us to do here. And the reason this is so important because. We already. And our lives and families and churches even in our churches. We spend so little on missions. Taking the Gospel to other places, but then even out of that which we spend on missions. Did you know? That ninety plus percent of missions resources in north. American churches so resources we're spending on. Missions are actually going to places in the world where the Gospel has already gone. Where churches have already been planted. Many churches even Christians when we think about missions. We think all over Latin America. We think all over sub Saharan Africa. When reality is by God's. Grace The Gospel has gone all over Latin America. All over sub Saharan Africa Yes. There are small pockets in these places, these regions where the gospels now gone, but for the most part the Gospel has gone disciples of in May, churches have been planted, and it's not wrong by any means to come alongside our brothers and sisters in these places to learn from them to work together for the glory of God, no question at the same time. We're fooling ourselves if we call that emissions when the reality is were still not obeying the mission. When ninety plus percent of our resources are going to places where the gas was already gone, and Jesus has commanded us, not suggested not implied he is crystal clear commanded us to make disciples take the Gospel, the good news of his love to people. Groups places where the gospels not yet gone. So this is why I know why. We radical started urgent, just identify the places in the world, the groups of people in the world, even the countries in the world, where there's the least access to the Gospel and to mobilize resources to go to them. It's called urgent. That's what initiatives call like. Because there's urgent need, there are people dying and going to an eternal hell who've never even heard. Nobody's even brought the good news of how they can go to heaven through Jesus to them so I just wanted to lead us to pray accordingly. Jesus we. We want to obey your. Command. We want to make your grace and your glory known among all the nations. So we pray. That you would. Open her eyes. Inner Churches to see where the Gospel is gone and to work to take the Gospel, their and our lives, and our families, and our churches to go, and to send, and to come alongside brothers and sisters who are in these places, a few brothers and sisters. I think about that we're. Partnering together with these places in the world, God help us to get behind him and work with them. For the spread of the gospel of never heard gotta we pray you think about all these countries that we're focused on an urgent like Syria God for Your glory in the Megan disciples in Bhutan North Korean. Across India and Iraq and Afghanistan and Iran Laos Lebanon Nepal and some Malia and Yemen Jesus Make Your glory known in those places and use us to do it. Don't don't let us sit back. Content to hold onto the gospel or just to take it where it's already gone God, help us to work us our efforts to take the Gospel whereas Never Gone So that disciples made in all the nations. Just as you've called to do for Your glory for the glory of the name of Jesus in all nations. We pray these

How Berlin Remembers; Turkish Delights; Travel to Bhutan

"Berlin has become the high tech and cultural powerhouse of today's dynamic German economy but there are still plenty of Berliners who can tell you about the difficulties. They faced back in the twentieth century as a divided city and stories of life under the Nazis during World War Two. We're joined now by German tour guides older Timur and Fabien Muga. Look at some of the most impressive monuments and memorials. You can visit to remember the lessons from Berlin past gentlemen. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having to live in Berlin as a tourist. You just come and go to live there. You're surrounded by all of this history and all of these memorials when you walk down the streets. Does it become just background and you just see through it or are you constantly aware of this happened there? This happened there and so on holger is part of everyday life. Yes but it's not like you kind of oversee it because it is there it is right in your face. I've seen most of the memorials like many countless times. As a berliner as tour guide here but they still are some of them are really haunting especially when it comes to divided city to the wall or to the time of the National Socialist period and in the case of Germany. With your complicated history. The memorials are almost there to not go away to be in your face. I mean there's even something called stumble stones right Fabio yes. There are a memorial stones to victims of the Holocaust who had deported from particular houses. And if you have a friend or relative was deported from that house you can donate some money to this foundation and they will put stumbling stone into the pavement Princeton pavement. Like you need to trip on this to never forget the horrible thing that happened right there when you think about Germany. A lot of our fixated on World War Two in the whole fastest thing but of course there's many layers of the city that was the leading city of of the PRUSSIAN empire and so on Fabio. And when you think about memorials of the horns period and Prussia what is there in Germany to look at our Berlin. I think the most visible that everybody know will know. Is The victory column. That's in the center of the main park often. The victory column was built as a symbol of victory over the French. This is where history and Berlin connect. It was originally standing on the spot where it is today. The Nazis moved at there to make it stand in a more triumphant spot in the very center of the city. It was originally built near the rice stuck building and was not looking quite some one mental there today. Six major streets of lead straight towards the listen to that part of a big access isn't it? I mean Hoeger. The whole city is built on this axis which lined by memorials. The East and west access really is this fascinating thing. You look up. And you see Golden Angel Hair and you think. Wow that's wonderful. Then you close in you. See while this is all candidates made cannons French cannons French cannons. Like as a AS A TO Z. Boy To as spoils of war multiple. Yeah so it is weird thing. If you you would think that's nice to call between can look at it that it has a little jab at the French. It's a big Jab at Big Jab at the French or the Germans the French and of course I in the next century. We've got the whole Hitler situation and a lot of memorials relating to the nightmare of Berlin being the capital of Nazism. What are some of the memorials that you'll see when you go to Berlin that way what I found very haunting as the memorial to the burning of the books right near onto the Lyndon right near the State Opera House? And it's basically a memorial that you wouldn't really see because it's underground and you would just maybe pastas Query Newton. We have no idea what it is but quite often you see consumerist groups looking at nothing really and then you look there and it basically is a hole in the ground. It's a glass plate in the ground and he looked down and there is an empty library like five by five five meters containing empty shelves for twenty thousand books. Symbolizing was happening in the tenth of May Nineteen thirty three. When the Nazis took all the books and literature that they hated that it didn't understand they didn't like and were putting them in a big pile and burning him openly for people to see and that's now empty. Shelves are very haunting memorial to that.

But that's only a fraction of Alino story arlene the first American and all woman ascent of an opponent. One considered one of the world's most dangerous and difficult mountains. She Co lead the first women's team to climb. Denali completed the Great Himalayan traverse across the mountain ranges of Bhutan the Pollen India and height the length of the European Alps with her baby daughter on her back. She's the author of Ana Pana a woman's place which was named one of the top one hundred best adventure books of all time by National Geographic.

She was chosen by the Guardian as one of the world's one hundred most inspiring women. Dr Bloom is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. And if that wasn't enough Eileen was elected to the whole of mountaineering. Excellent Hey uh keep me from getting. You remember the day where we're sitting right now. I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis. And what have you

The in baton by my Jimmy's friends, and they told me I can basically develop the concept and implement my ideas, and that's how it all started. And who has tourism change to baton? Well, actually, what what I feel has changed. Most were is the infrastructure. It's may be the the road infrastructure guest houses facilities over the past fifteen years have really improved the a lot. So the first time I wasn't baton you barely found guest house in rural areas. But now, you have really along the main road with they call it the highway through Potanin, it's going from the south infants willing to temple the capital till the east, and again, you can exit from some of the song, which is the down in the east of basically, find guest houses in hotels, all along this route, and you know, temple the capital has. Really grown immensely. It's mass. Basically the the population has tripled over the Boston years. And there's a lot of issue with ROY a rural urban migration because of that the the the most of the impact is is on the infrastructure, actually. So what then is is a typical home Stielike as opposed to check into a motel or a hostile. Yes. Oh in Bhutan. You have different categories of home states. You have home stays for example, nearby towns or in towns where you have facilities that are not necessarily. It's not necessarily with attached farm. You stay with a family. You'll you eat with the family, and you have indoor plumbing toilets, maybe sometimes attached to the bedroom where it's in rural areas in village. As you really can state. You can stay in farmhouses very very traditional once in a.

"Nice. Now, you also learnt when you were they discovered in fact that women with trousers can you explain a women are the only people who can inherit property in Bhutan. So sort of a sister would inherit the property and the the brother has to go in if he gets married he has to move in with his wife and Herve extended family if he is single the, and he might go and rent somewhere where maybe his sister will let him live on the farm with her. He can earn enough money through working to buy some property, but he will not inherit it ever. So that's interesting. And you know, it kind of I can see how that logic happened in how it got to that. Because maybe when women didn't really work outside the home as much. This was a way to be more equal Mendome property. But they have to buy it. They can't inherit it fascinating. Civil was your and that would fascinating comes to me every time we chat arrayed anything about Tom. What did you make of it? Bhutan was overwhelming to me. I was there about ten days. Bhutan has a daily set fee. You you can't wonder in the way you do in Nepal. Right. So named they Paul you have tourists everywhere. Just doing everything into bet. You don't have any tour. Like, you're you know, you have to really very rigid the access I feel like it's three kingdoms, and you can compare them one of them when kingdom for countries that you can compare and Tabet is really hard to get into Nepal is really easy to get into and Bhutan is trying to find its way balancing between those two this admission fee, commit Lee when I started to break it down. It turns out that that fee per day, which I think now is it's. It's more than when I went when I went I had to pay two hundred and forty dollars a day, which is why was ten days instead of you know, a month. But it includes your guide which is compulsory. It includes your driver, which is compulsory. It includes your hotel room. You your includes your meals, it's basically all paid for. So while that is still prohibitive to a budget traveler, it is actually quite in line with what leisure travelers pay who are, you know, who don't travel necessarily the way you are. I might they wanna have tourists, but they want to control it and do it in a sustainable way. Which is really how they try to do everything there. They try to find a way forward that is sustainable, and that is socially responsible. But it's treated to us as a Dilip remote kingdom in the clouds where they don't have MTV, and they don't have plastic bags single use bags all of that is, of course, a ridiculous cliche. Exaggeration. That's not really what it is. It is scenic it is clean. It is socially responsible. They're trying to find ways to accommodate, you know, multiple conflicting needs of the people. So everyone recycles pigs are fed weeds which in to my surprise, they are fed pot. So if there is marijuana growing by the side of the road, they will pick it and feed it to the pigs penises and blue ribbons are painted on buildings in rural areas. Farts are funny like everywhere dogs ran freely in the streets barking because nobody wants to lock up the dogs because that would be rude to the dogs everyone. There knows what to do. And you see a yeti no-one has actually seen one. But everyone knows exactly what you're supposed to do with the male yeti. They have long hair, and they will trip over it. So you run one direction the other one the. Female yetis have really long flopping breasts, and they'll trip over those c- run the other way. So everyone knows what to do and you see a yeti. So it's a really interesting place. Okay. Let me clear up a couple of things the divine madman is maverick site. Druk PA Kunle direction of pronounce that correctly. Asking you.

Why Does Ebola Keep Spreading In Congo? Here's A Major Clue

"Support for NPR and the following message come from Amelia Island, Florida a barrier island on the northeast coast that captivates visitors with thirteen miles of uncrowded beach championship golf, natural beauty and a historic district Amelia Island dot com slash NPR. Now an update on the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There is a sliver of good news infections are down in some of the biggest hot spots, but the disease is flaring up in new areas, bringing the total number of cases since August. Two nearly nine hundred and NPR's new read Eisenman reports responders are zeroing in on a major source of these new infections. Michelle Yao is leading the on the ground response to this outbreak for the World Health Organization whenever someone's infected his team goes through a checklist of questions like where you're in contact with inning sink best. That's how some symptoms like bleeding like fever say. Relative you were taking care of or maybe the deal attend. It's been around at traditional funerals mourners often wash the body, but some weeks ago as cases started erupting around to town's called Kotla and Bhutan Mbo. The investigators found that patient after patient had something else in common. They had all recently visited a health clinic for treatment for some other disease like respiratory infection or malaria, the I want to hospital that treat me I got through and then few this after I stopped having fevers that were the first signs of Ebola. WHO officials estimate about one fifth of the recent cases in Kotla and Bhutan. Bo were infected at clinics, and when y'all started visiting the clinics, it was pretty obvious. How this was happening even the government run facilities large hospitals, hadn't set up triage tents to separate possible. Ebola patients from everyone else, this is is not when non in this. South of the country. It's the first time even more problematic says Yao are the hundreds of unofficial private health facilities in this area. Some are huge opperations others are in a neighbor's house and in those lump on the patients crowded in one bed within two kids. They're also often short on a quick moment, like surgical gloves and syringes mcgahn people using several times, the sim gloves all the same equipment. Then there are the traditional medicines. A lot of them offer traditional medicines. Obey diluted in water and put in a Cup, which says often isn't cleaned before. It's passed on to the next patient. So Congo's government and the WHO have mounted a massive campaign to reach out to each of these facilities in Koch wa in Bhutan. Bo train them on infection control, provide them with the equipment to do it. Dr Chee manuka is your men is with a group called international medical corps. That's helping with the effort. He says. At one private clinic. When he told his staff to refer suspected Ebola cases to a hotline instead of treating them though is saying this is not possible for us because what we are doing is money for our clinic. We're a business then there's the facility, where's your men's spent days training, nurses on how to set up an operate? A triage tent two weeks ago? He showed up for a surprise.

Nice are the beaches. Good spoken, like a true hotel developer Trump's ignorance will or not is a factor. Trump pointed in one briefing to a map and said he knew that Nepal is part of India.

So he would finally understand the size of that facility. He was told that North Korea had seal the entrances to that facility just for Kim Jong loons talks with Trump, but that those entrances could be easily reopened. He didn't get it or didn't believe them. So he publicly declared that North Korea had shut down that missile site and was no longer a threat to the United States between their own unpleasant encounters with the president and the repeated warnings they get about not contradicting him former Intel officials worried the briefers may just stop telling him the truth.

Can happiness be a factor in GDP calculation?

"We all talk a lot about economic growth in the most comprehensive measure we use is GDP gross domestic product. But in addition to adding up the value of finished goods and services, should we also be factoring in the well being of people on the planet? Well, that's an argument put forward at the international economics of happiness conference, which took place this weekend here in England at lozad. Ler is boss of the happy city. Charity. Economic growth is decent measure for whether or not we are consuming more this year than last year and more Kazimi more next year than this. We said that somehow the goal of all of our human activity in our world. And what we've been trying to say is that actually the end goal is the capacity for all of us to thrive economic growth might be one of ingredients for delivering that, but it's not the end goal. The mommy make it the end goes, maybe skew everything else, health services, just about churning out people as quickly as we possibly can. Education just becomes about making productive. It'll work because at cetera. Okay, that'll make sense, but is factoring in well-being, something that businesses and governments can realistically do. Once we measure those things, we compare it is them we can understand what affects the more. We can start putting investment and value on the things that promote those things. There are increasingly around the world government to upbringing in legislation that says, we have to take into account the well being of current and future generations to by minute happiness. It was just got quite a lot of smirks around the world, but actually they are taking it very seriously. They're starting to measure the wellbeing of that people in a fundamental way more countries in south. America doing this around AustralAsia and Europe. Let's not forget. The big business are huge employers in our world. So as employers, they need to start really taking this early because unhappy workers are not all of the things they want meant to be productive. Good at problem solving team members, loyal listener, things clever business, at least is starting to invest in that better future rather than just invest in very, very short term benefits for shareholders or profit lines that it Liz either they're happy city.
