"Literature on what level of vitamin D you need in order to optimize your immune system is really not very clear. And so, unfortunately, most of the recommendations most of the testing we've had has been driven by Concerns about bone health rather than concerns about the immune system, So the difficult thing is, we don't know exactly what the right level for the immune system is now What we do know is this levels get too high. It could be dangerous for people and so you know, people have been cautious and making recommendations. Not to go too much about what Indications are for bone health into higher ranges because of valid concerns about potential toxicity. My guess is, though, that there could well be some level higher than the minimum amount that have been suggested for bone health. But lower than the levels that produced toxicity that might be healthy. Well, we really don't know for sure It's so interesting because I've been to a number of doctors lately because I had our listeners know that I had a herniated disc in my back, and I recently did have a bone density test to find out where my bone health was. And I have doctor saying various things about where Oh, your levels at this number That's not too low, someone else saying Well, that's way too low. Get it above. 2 60. So there's a big debate going on now about where your vitamin D level should be. And I guess you know, it's it's up to your doctor and your health history. But there are Like you said. There's not enough data out there and every person's different. What about the association with Sun? Because we know we get vitamin D from the sun, especially if you're not wearing sunscreen and very early all and people said, you know, with Cove ID get out in the sun. Yeah. I mean, I think that that's a very healthy wouldn't get by there indeed. And you know, people don't really develop toxicity from going into the sun with respect to vitamin D when you can get skin cancer and other things so you don't want to burn, But getting regular son is a very healthy way to get right indeed. The problem is that living in Chicago coming into the war, it's extremely difficult to get enough in that way. Sun exposure It's related to how much skin you exposed the time of day that you do it. So you know if you go out every day at noon in the middle of the winter with a scarf coat, Unfortunately, you're not going to get a lot of vitamin D. So I think as long as we've got this warm weather, everyone should be out. Trying to get a little sun is offense they can without burning. Um I do think that it makes sense for people to take vitamin D supplements. I'm personally taking about 4000. Today. I might take a little last Sunday's when I go outside and get a lot of sun, But that's typically what I'm doing in the studies that were getting ready to do and we're preparing to do some clinical trials were gonna be here even people up to 4000 units a day. To see whether that helps prevent Cove. It will also be doing some studies with higher doses. But we're gonna be doing those studies on Lee with careful medical monitoring of calcium levels. Another potential complications of getting too much vitamin D and just to tell our listeners, you know, just to monitor your vitamin D levels. It's just a simple blood test. So if you do or work with your doctor And you're taking whatever the amount of doctor suggests, and you won't know if it's too low or too high. You could take a blood test. I mean, that's what I've done. I've checked my vitamin D. After six weeks of upping what my doctors told me to increase the amount that I was taking with my, you know calcium When I was talking about my bone health, One of the question is what else is good to boost the immune system? As we head on into the cold weather in the winter? It's tough. I mean, a lot of people talk about about vitamin C. They talk about physical activity. They About reducing stress. You know, all of those air are probably good thing. Some people have talked about sink, but I think all of these fall in the realm of you know reasonable things to do in in moderation. But they're not incredibly well proven. Yeah, I take the same pill every day. That was another thing that I heard the very beginning, and I had already been taking it. But you gotta you gotta check with your doctor. It's very important. Dr Meltzer, the humans think is the problem. So, so that's the thing will be happy to have you come back on. When you've done additional studies on vitamin D, I find it fascinating. So Dr David Meltzer Fanelle Pritzker, professor of medicine, chief of the section of hospital Medicine and director Of the Center for Health in the social Sciences at the University of Chicago. Thank you so much for coming on and educating our listeners on this. It's fantastic information. Thank you. Oh, thank you for having me really is a fascinating area. By the way. There's another study out today that obesity seems to put people in higher risk for getting very sick of their infected with the Corona virus. We heard this early on about people certain underlying conditions, and doctors have been trying to figure out why they say excess weight already increases the likelihood of chronic health problems like diabetes. It can make it more likely to get severely ill from Kobe 19. But there's also evidence that obesity itself raises the risk of getting very sick. Scientists think the way obesity affect the immune system. Maybe one reason they also know that excess fat can make breathing more difficult. And Copan 19 khun damage the lungs. So there's some new information on that out there today and then I'm just reading this that, uh, this just in Oxford vaccine trial on hold because of a safety issue, So this is AstraZeneca's trial. And it's their standard review process that when they see a little bit of data where they are during a trial that there's an unexplained illness they halted and they investigated. So they say, it's not abnormal for this to happen. But because it just did their halting there's air. Putting there is temporarily on hold right now, and they've been trying to enroll about 30,000 volunteers for their trial. All right, coming up on 2591 18 900. I need your help on this one. The president had a big reception today. In Florida. People were lining the streets. Many were holding American flags. It's a very tight race in Florida and he needs Florida TTO win.

"Versus a scarcity mentality. Right view the world with an abundance mentality you go about it and just trying to help people and you're building a better brand. You're building relationships with other people and you're building a relationship with the other chapter. That will be a reciprocal relationship where they want to do. So there's four one one comment and then three reasons why Victor. I think it's a good idea for you to Invite this person to your group so facility you had. You had a good one is it. Yes so it's the reason that you want to invite guests whether they can join or not anytime because they have a network and since he hasn't pledged himself to another group yet. He is not dedicated to the people in that group and so when he meets the members of your group then he might refer them to his network in so there's definitely a benefit to the other members. And that's when I didn't even think of a Priscila that is a great observation because you know if victory you maybe assuming that this guy would want to join new chapter or want to join another chapter and he might not him. Every week might be too much for him or who knows what the reason might be he might know of people that could benefit and would be interested and and he would most likely refer them to your group. Get your point right for source so he may actually invite someone to your chapter. Even if he doesn't join being. Yeah exactly so. I think that's a great a great additional point and so Victor I. This is a fantastic question. I really appreciate you sharing it with with me and I hope I've answered your question. Priscila you had a great addition to it and Please feel free everyone to keep those questions. I mean I can't I can't promise to answer all of your questions. I get a lot but I will try and pick the ones that I think coming up. The most often or the most important critical ones And and trying to answer those and they send them to ask Ivan Dot Com.

How Do We Fall Asleep?
"On this podcast. You take questions from kids just like you all over the world and we find answers. We've heard from a lot of you who listen to podcast when you're winding down and getting ready for bed so it makes sense that a lot of you are inspired to send. Us questions about sleep. Flooded people toss and turn on the Risley when new getting into the deep sleep. You'll Buri somehow wakes you up but kicking and it feels like you're really hot. Why's that I don't want to get out of bed in the morning? And when it is nighttime I don't want to go. She read in this episode. We are answering your questions about sleep. Did you know there are doctors who focus specifically on helping kids sleep better? We found one of them at national Jewish health. That's a hospital in Colorado. My Name is Dr Lisa. Meltzer and I am a pediatric sleep psychologist. Which means I work with kids to help them sleep better. Do you feel like you sleep. Pretty well do you think. Oh Yea when the adults in your life tell you it's bedtime or do you struggle to get ready for bed and maybe even struggled to go to sleep or to stay asleep. Dr Meltzer says there are a few things that all of us can do to help us on the path to good sleep. Kids have a very consistent bedtime. Wake time so that means you go to bed about the same time every night. Wake up about the same time every morning. We recommend things like not having any screens in your bedroom. Having a bedroom. That's nice and cool and dark and a place that you like to sleep things like that that are very consistent. What we call sleep health. Let's jump right into some of our questions because we have a lot of kids who have sent us questions about sleep or we're going to start with the basics. Hi My name is and I live in South Orange New Jersey. I'm Steffan and my question is why do people need to sleep? Thank you I love your show similarly from Jordan in Vermont. Why do we really need to go to? Here's one from Maria and five years old and I come from Ottawa Ontario. And my question is why people need to sleep and we also got this from five year old aiden in McKinley Bill California. Why do have to sweep? 'cause I don't will you get and by the White Cornyn Swe We book. That sounds like a lovely way to fall asleep. Aiden so Dr Meltzer. Why do we need to sleep? These are great questions that scientists are spending a lot of time trying to better understand and we don't have one particular answer but we have a lot of different reasons that people think are important for why we sleep. The first one goes back to how humans have developed so there was a time when humans didn't live in houses but lived out in caves. Lived out in the wild and at night when they sleep they were inactive and that made them vulnerable so that predators. The big animals might come and attack them during the night. So you sleep to stay away from those animals that might come and harm in the middle of the night. In other words people were possibly safer tucked up in a cave or shelter sleeping through the night instead of being out and about in the dark when there were big animals with better eyesight also roaming around but being asleep doesn't mean your body shuts down completely. You can still be somewhat alert to danger when you're sleeping you do notice a little bit of the world around you. You can hear certain sounds and things like that and it same thing back in those times where you would want enough of a consciousness enough of awareness of what's going on around you to protect you from those Predator so we call that the evolution of why we sleep so another theory why we sleep is to conserve our energy. I mean we use a lot of energy during the day when you're running and you're playing when you sleep. These things changed the number of calories that you need reduce your temperature drops down your body is basically given a time to rest and relax. So that conserves your energy while you're sleeping and along those lines that allows your body to restore itself so again you're working your muscles all these types of things when you're awake and when you rest it allows them to heal sort of like when you get a cold at night it allows your immune system to fight off those bad germs to help you get better again really interesting one of the first things that happens when you fall asleep is growth hormone is released in growth hormone helps you grow so you literally grow in. Your sleep. So that's another reason. Why Sleep is important. I knew it. I knew I felt taller when I wake up in the morning. Okay maybe it doesn't work that way for adults but that's pretty cool isn't it? You grow while you're sleeping kind of make sleeps on more appealing more like something you might. WanNa do doesn't it? But it's not just your body that gets to rest and recover and rebuild from a busy day of running around. Your brain also need sleep to stay at peak performance. We know that children's brains develop in different ways as they get older so in very young children. The areas around language envision are the parts that are the most active during sleep. Because that's the part of you that's developing during the day and when you're in school aged the parts of your brain that start learning all the different things like math and reading those parts of your brain start to develop when you become a teenager the front part of your brain that helps you with decision making and keeping your mood. Nice calm. That's the part of your brain. That's most active during sleep. So your brain is also developing during sleep. Here's something else you might like to know. Sleep helps you remember what you've learned you take in information while you're awake but it sets in your brain while you're sleeping so if you're studying for say vocabulary test you. WanNa go to sleep after you've because it will help your brain remember. Those words in the morning same goes for all kinds of memories and other things. You might want to be able to repeat like that joke. Your friend told you that you can't wait to tell someone else. Hello My name is Shaun. I live in San Diego. My question is what is sleeping. Get rid of toxins in your brain. Why does sleeping get rid of toxins in the brain? It's a great question so again during the day. Our brain is really busy with everything that we have to do to help us get through the day but when we're sleeping our brain is less busy with all those activities so it has time basically to clean itself out and the toxins build up as we're active and doing all the things that we're doing so sleep gives a time for the brain to relax and sort of take care of itself. I like picturing little cleaners with brooms and stuff inside my brain going in and sweeping and scraping things off. That don't need to be there. That's perfect I mean. It really is a time. It's kind of like when you leave school overnight. They come in and they clean all the rooms and they get ready for the next day. It's the same kind of thing going on in your brain. We have some questions for you. Dr Meltzer about movement and Hello. My name is emily now from Brisbane Australia. Seven and my question is when you sleep. He'll but we're new getting into the deepest sleep your body somehow wakes you up but kicking in feels like you jump really hot what I want to know. So this is something called a hip nick jerk or asleep twitch hip nick jerk sleep twitch. I love that name. Do you ever have a hip. Nick Jerk happen to you. You're just falling asleep and then you feel like you're falling and your body twitches and it wakes you up if you watch babies. They do this all the time when they're falling asleep as you get older you tend to do it a little bit less and there's again multiple reasons why people think this happens. One of the reasons is that as you're falling asleep all of your muscles start to relax and your brain may think oh those muscles relaxing. They must be falling. And it kicks you awake and that causes you to jerk or jump high into the air. It could make maybe even scare you that feeling of

I heard her talk times I never interviewed or what am I on the phone with her or something? But it was so funny because I really didn't know much about her. But my grandmother for some reason was fan girl for doors day, she loved her. Those fun movies. If you're if you like if you're into the retro thing you go back to like rock Hudson movies that she made like pillow talk and Pajama Game. And one of my favorites was this movie this old movie called the glass bottom boat. And she was like all about the space age as they saw it in the early sixties. It's really funny. It's just an escape. I love those kind of movies are total escape rather than watching shows real the heads get cut off. Can people sleeping with their brothers? Sorry Lewis movies.

"But you know, we know that it has a relationship to how women are treated during their pregnancy. How imagery to during their birth? What kind of care they get during their birth experience? And how we as a society support mothers families. So we know that it we have higher rates of postpartum depression in countries with higher income inequality with higher rates of maternal and infant mortality. And countries that focused more on work than life in the work life balance. Dr Meltzer Brody, it seems like postpartum depression is is something that's only migrated into our public consciousness in the last ten fifteen years, and you talked about this sort of stigma. That's that surrounds it. I think Jennifer block is talking here about some of the other factors that are contributory. How do you see what she's saying? Well, I think that, you know, women's health has been something that's been highly neglected in this country. So Dr Yonkers and others have been studying postpartum depression for many years, and there's reports going back to antique witty. I think that if we look how women are treated in the perinatal period is going to take all of us working together to improve things for mothers. So I wholeheartedly agree that there is enormous opportunity to improve the way we. Support mothers and women in this country to start with we're the only developed country. The United States is the only developed country in the world without a universal maternity leave. And that's agreed GIS. I mean, I think we can all agree on that. And I think that all of us need to work together. I would say that as a psychiatrist I see women and Dr Yonkers and others who see women with really severe symptoms. We are seeing women for whether it's genetic loading early life trauma. You know, any number of factors that have made them vulnerable to postpartum depression. I think that it's a really exciting opportunity to talk with Jennifer and others about prevention. What can we do as a society to prevent depression in as many women as possible? I mean, I wholeheartedly believe that for women who perhaps have genetic loading or biologically loaded in the same way. You can't prevent cancer in everyone. There are environmental factors, and then there's biologic factors that. Are going to make some people at risk. But I think we all need to work together to figure out. How are we as a society going to improve health for moms, and our and families, and that this is something that really needs to have a multifaceted approach? Let me get some callers in here from Columbia, South Carolina, Sabrina is on the line. I highly welcome to the program. Hi, thank you for taking my call out when I gave birth to my second child eight years ago, I've suffered from postpartum depression. But I just didn't know that what was going on. I was extremely anxious hopeless..

"What's your reaction to the FDA approval of this postpartum depression treatment? Well, I I'd like to. Men Dr Meltzer Brody on her comments because I guess it's an appropriate time to say that she is on point. Right. But what she has to say is is so accurate that postpartum, depression and depression in general can just be an absolutely devastating illness and all of us, welcome any possible, new quiver if you or or ERO in our quiver to combat this. I'm not so sure that we have been bereft totally of new treatments. So for example, s ketamine is an exciting new compound that was just FDA approved a couple of weeks ago or month ago, and that is another rapidly acting antidepressant, and then we have things like trans cranial magnetic stimulation, which is relatively new. However, this compound is very exciting for those of us in the field because this was tested in. Postpartum women. And typically what happens is a medication is tested for depression in general. And then it's applied to sort of sub groups such as people with post stroke, depression, or people with postpartum depression. Now, I want to underscore that as much as we welcome new treatments that people should also recognize that the current treatments which include psychotherapy as well as pills for medic pill, antidepressant pills, also work, very well. And you know, twenty years ago, I was doing research and testing standard antidepressant treatments for women who had postpartum depression, and we did see about thirty percent improvement within the first week. The time course for what we have seen historically is much longer to the magnitude of one or two weeks compared to the response. That Dr Meltzer Brody has seen in her studies. So Dr Meltzer Brody talk about that. How long does this treatment last is a real slow? Well, it is a sixty hour infusion. So that's about two and a half days and the drug has been studied out so far to thirty days. And as I mentioned of the women who responded ninety four percent, the overwhelming majority continued ever retreatment response at thirty days, but it has not been studied past that point yet. And that's going to be a really important additional course of information to get in. So who's a candidate who's a good candidate for this for this treatment, Dr milti-party? So, you know, the drug is just a few things to highlight the drug is a formula of aloe pregnenolone, which is a breakdown product of the hormone progesterone. And I think it's worth mentioning that in pregnancy. We have normally all what pregnant women have high levels of estrogen progesterone, and at the time of childbirth and all women those levels fall quickly Allah pregnant. Loan the breakdown. Product of progesterone has been known animal studies and for a long time to have a role in treating potentially depression anxiety. And that's why this new drug is specific potentially for women with postpartum, depression and has a new mechanism of action for women with severe symptoms..

Typically, these things are either like poems little fatty cysts that exists in the fitness of the skin sometimes they're soft. Sometimes they're a movable when you move, you know, the skin and other times, they become hard and tense. There could be a pilot system in there. There are either sister like Palmas in the scalp and any decent. Dr certainly dermatologists, you don't need to go to somebody big time like a plastic surgeon to remove it unless it's Trigano. But that's typically what they are. If you just put a mutilated and try to extract some fluid there may be no fluid, maybe fat. So usually it should be taken out where the sack is taken out completely. These are very common. Many years ago when I got into practice and. Of course, we saw all sorts of different things and my dad had some of the cysts on his head. So you know, none of them up and took out sewed it up some to my sister. And then invariably patients had these things. So we used to do a decent amount of this years ago.

Let's see we have here for some interesting research. Combination of security and DHA may confer spinal cord neuro protection. Now, we've been talking about DHA as being important for your brain your nerves. We've been talking about circulation being great as an anti inflammatory anticancer agent. There's research on this. And this comes from UCLA. Randomized control study with animals that had cervical spun delivered my allopathy. The researchers found that a combination should Cuban in DHA promoted better, spinal, health and neutralized the damaging effects of the mile apathy. Now, we have people taking EPA DHA every day some people take one or two or three capsules we have people taking cer- cumin every day. I think it's a great idea. And there are some new combinations coming out with acumen cumin CBD from hemp, which have some really great anti-inflammatory properties. So we're looking at this very closely. Looking to see which things that I might be able to recommend patients to. There are probably fifty products out there. But so much of it is not standardized. Search you're getting an oil or you're getting a capsule. You don't know exactly what you're getting for the companies that I've been talking to an researching they make gel caps, and it's got the exact amount of active ingredient in every cap. So that might be a great way to utilize it, and there are some that might be good topically for for joints, or for inflammation your body. But I'll bring some more information to the forefront want us to get through all this. Because there's a lot of information there. Okay. Phone.

"And I want to be quick to say thank you to those of you that have been calling tonight in have decided to help us. It's exciting to see people step into the opportunity when we do this. And last year, I know that as we were telling you about the slaves in northern Sudan and kind of what they would experience, and you saw how CSI was actively work in had answered, you know, some of those challenges by giving these slaves really new life free life. It was just a cool thing to see people jump in and say, yeah, I wanna help. I I know that we can make a difference. This is so e as toughest slavery is this is so much more traumatic. I think on so many different levels. And the fact that there is literally no other organization. No government entity. No government authority, the in Nigeria or outside that are that are helping this is really as a sliver of hope for people that just have no reason to believe that there's going to be any, and that's why I'm grateful for CSI, ungrateful for Joel I'm grateful for his willingness to go and spend time there, and then come back and tell us these stories Joel in the last segment, you started to tell us about a pastor, and we had to we had to cut it short or a doctor password. Dr meltzer. Yeah. So pick up on what you wanna do because we didn't have time. Yeah. No, absolutely thanksgiving. So yeah. Pass Regina mentioned that. For safety and several years ago. His church was burned out. But now they meet every Sunday in a in a large tent. So, you know, pastor John basically said we're not gonna let the enemy stop us from meeting together. So that's the type of courage that we see the church and many of the church leaders displaying during this difficult time for them. For the for the young kids that survive these attacks and lose their parents. What is the current strategy for how to deal with them? Specifically. Now, I'm assuming that they're in these shelters where we're hoping to put the families as well. But what what what type of influences do we put on the the kids since they are minus parents at this point. Right. Well, I mean, they need trauma counseling and were located helping provide that for them as well. It's definitely an important part of the holistic care that we can provide for these victims of these horrific attacks, but there's just so many things to try to tackle right from the beginning. I mean, you know, the medical treatment, and then we have a shelter. And then we have a lot of just basic needs that were trying to get sleeping materials to people. No shelters clothes utensils. There's pregnant nursing moms that are not under any Natal. In postnatal care. There's kids because they didn't have the proper shelter that can't go to school. So we're looking to help, you know, obviously, the shelf shelter helps them do their schoolwork and find find schools for them to attend in the area as well. And then I'm getting some of the parents up and running on just basic, you know, loans, so they can start their own little businesses in town as well like getting jobs again. So did a lot of needs by definitely caring for the orphans. And having the trauma counseling is going to be a important part. I've seen those kids, you know, overcome. What what they've been experiencing trauma counseling as part of that medical help support provided for in our gift friend will give a gift you're addressing three things tonight. You're dressing food and kind of the physical material stability that they need your dressing shelter, which is huge because obviously there. Not out in an exposed area anymore. And they have if they're in one of these compounds is run by the churches, you've got walls and you've got control gates new got the ability to provide security for people. And then you've got the medical care, which could be everything as Joel was just describing from the trauma counseling for the young people to their repair bullet wounds in machete cuts in things that kids never should ever have to be experiencing. I mean, there's just so many levels wrong. And yet. If we don't do this. And we don't step up and provide help who will do it. That's that's a hard question for me to answer. Tonight's one of the reasons why felt very convinced that this was just for us to take on for this holiday cycle here at Kevin McCullough radio on radio, and I live. So what I'm what I'm asking? You to do is be as Genesis you can now there may be some of you that are looking at the year end. And you're saying, okay, I normally would like to give a large gift to a cause that I know will be tax deductible. But it's a good way to to help change the world because I have gift, and I need to need to giving before the end of the year from tax purposes, etc..

"They're not taking risks. They signed a contract to work in a place. They're going to get X amount of money per year. Right, go to work work. Go home. Watch TV go shopping do their thing. And so this idea that only the shareholder is a really big risk taker because they don't have a guaranteed rate of return led also to this concept that they were the residual claimants. Once everyone else has been paid. If there's anything leftover the residual, meaning the extra thing leftover at the end, they have the right to claim get it. They should get it. So then you just have to pause and say, okay, sorry. What was that story there? You know, the government, for example, has a guaranteed rate of return, of course, not just think of everything in your iphone or your smartphone. Whatever the brand may be was actually. Funded by the government. Right. So what makes it smarter not stupid? The internet was funded by DARPA and the department of defense the GPS was funded by the eighty series the voice activated system the touchscreen display. These were all government financing for each of those successes. There was actually many failures or think of Celinda was a was a failure. But Lindros lender was a solar company that the Obama government actually invested in gave it a five hundred million guaranteed loan and it failed just like other. You know investments it's made have actually succeeded. Tesla was actually also government-financed initially with an equivalent size loan just under five hundred million. And so the government itself for every tesla probably will have to bear with two or three cylinders for every internet might have to bear with two or three concord planes which today are seen as failures because they're not flying. And so, of course, the government has no guaranteed rate of return. It's also service taker workers are all service takers, they might accept a job thinking that they'll have a life. Time career, and maybe except have a lower salary than they would like because they think they will rise up through the ranks. There's no guarantee for that. Right. So you actually have different types of risk-takers different types of value, creators, and these companies, and unless we have a real firm understanding of how value is created collectively by different stakeholders, then we end up with these problematic ideas about shareholders being the only risk-takers, the only value creators, and what you get is the justification for the prophets, and the revenues of these companies to basically be siphoned off to a narrow group of actors who have been part of the process, but not the only ones and that breeds inequality.

You also wants to know about the burden on power stations as well, but I didn't know that that's not probably quite within our remits here today, but it is a question of the number of people have been emailing about, can the power stations on that topic of you just released a report on Monday this week, and they said that actually they were confident they were going to put in place different elements to make sure that we the grid would be able to cope with the increase in charging in particular. It's all about making incentivizing drivers to charge at at an off off peak time overnight. His, I think that's called smart meters. Incentivisation people want them.

Am I Dr Meltzer your for work and derived York in grind this burning every and violence. Really nearly half the population do not house all street park in a terrorist street in York and and my car. Although it's part by every single night, I've emailed mold p of Email the council and they're just not willing to provide new solution for charging it. And I've got really simple solution Arana cable gully or the pavement sticker cable in there overnight and the car charges ready for the next day. You've actually run a cable across the pavement. I I did wonder about doing that myself, probably too dangerous for their trials and Oxford where they have special channel, just cutting repayment, much like a lot drain drainpipes are in York and into blade table into that channel, so you can't walk on it. You can't. You can't not get, and, and it's just a while you to charge your car will. Puffy. That does sound like a good idea. But what I would say is that there is government funding available through local council. So. Shane, they're not kind of saying yes to you right now, but that definitely is government funding available for the installation of on street residential charges. So hopefully quite soon you should be able to persuade you're like, oh council to get one installed on your street, which which you should be able to use no proper, but you can use it, but then you'd have to pay different new. But I think the point that yes. An on street chargers. Gonna cost quite a while. Money even with the various grunts to there are is if I pay for cable channel for western hundred pounds on an installation recharge point, number cheaper option, I can charge overnight. So I'm not giving a modem the grid, which is what the national criticize one feels the charge tonight. And what how safe do you feel the cable is? I mean, it sitting in a channel. Are you concerned somebody might we'll connect you don't. I don't do that currently. There seems to be like there are few delusions. You could have one. We didn't post your host that you've got cable bodies pavement.
