"european trade commission" Discussed on Inside Intercom Podcast

"So we talk a lot about customers centrists city how to bring that into your strategy how to implemented at the executive level all the way down. How have you worked to bring this. Customer centric mindset to the leadership team Yelp and You know as a means to drive the type of outcomes that you're looking for in your role So it's interesting. Yelp is a two sided marketplace. So we have to customers one customer for many years got a lot more of the attention from us internally and that is the consumer customer the actual folks who are going to. Y'all been saying feel like a great cup coffee nearby Door i need a plumber. Or whatever it might be and i would say We always have had a very strong. Dna internally of making sure that that customer need need is met with strong advocacy for that customer across the board. I would say we are making massive improvements in the last couple of years in really thinking through and prioritizing our other customer which is small business customer and these people that run those coffee shops or the plumbers that operate those businesses. And i think that internally. I've always been a pretty strong advocate for those customers in part. Because that's just the world i came up yelp. I've been talking to our customers since the day i started. And so you know there's lots of ways you can go about this. I think there's some really really cool structural ways to coach within a company. For example i e bay was always there with a lot of ex bears at yelp was always well respected for having what's called ebay live which is an annual or bi annual event. Where the top sellers would come in to h q. They would spotlight They were like movie stars internally. Be like oh my gosh caitlin p. You're the one. He sells all the reusable cups. In spoons we love you. We love your work. We love your the marketplace. You've created and so i think that some of those types of things we are starting a program called yelp voices which is very similar. So i think having these types of structural things that really celebrate. Your customer are really important. I also think a lot of beta feedback from our guest feedback on beta products from customers and having beta communities and a square has done a really nice job of that a And make sure you're getting really tight feedback loops. Having things like user research teams that actually go out and bring you statistical research and marketing survey data. those are really nice structure always to do it But i also think it's a internally about just championing your customer. I mean if you sit in their meeting with me and in in a conference room at our headquarters you'll definitely hear me use phrases repeatedly like based on my intuition of our customers. I think blah blah blah blah blah or If i can be an advocate for our small business customers in this conversation i would say blah blah blah blah blah. So just making sure people understand with these customers. Are i think in our case. The first part of our marketplace that i was talking about the consumer. Everybody can sympathize with that because everybody is consumer but not everybody is a small business owner and not. Everybody has spent a lot of time talking to our small business owners. So it's really important that you have advocates who are well respected who can go out and kind of spread the customer gospel as it were. It's great we had mike. Read board from hub spot on a previous podcast and he talked about making intentional decisions about the expensive things. You're going to continue to do. And i think some of these activities or actions is a great example of the the one or two places to continue to go big and perhaps be expensive to bring that customer voice. Yeah um we're to the forefront alright so katie going back to yelp and its journey over So many years you know the business expanded into new markets across the us and really had its sights on international domination and has since changed course so it'd be great to get your perspective on what drove that decision and why you'll ultimately decided to stop pursuing that yeah So we like many companies especially consumer internet companies had our sights set on international growth. I think for many companies. It's a great way to pretty immediately. Expand your tam. And that's always great For investors and shareholders and like most ambitious consumer internet companies. We absolutely wanted to fulfill big dreams of Being an international brand and still do so. We launched the user side so the actual just functionality of yelp and writing reviews inc as early as twenty ten was when we initially went to ireland and then the k. And then sure enough kind of every quarter or so. We're adding on new countries. Yelp today exists in believe it's fourteen countries and you can help in any of those countries in twenty twelve. We decided to open up a business operations and actually start monetize ing and some of those countries and then in twenty sixteen. We decided to pull back on. Monetize just pullback sales and marketing but we've kept the actual user site open and what led us to kind of halt investing in Some of those areas this very complicated. We've probably spent like To our podcast session talking about that and we can get jeremy in here. But if i were to kind of try to summarize it you know. I would start with accountability for some of the things that we didn't do quite right when we went international. The i was probably a pretty common refrain if you talk to most american companies who tried to go international. Which is we tried to fit. In american shaped peg into a european shaped hall we basically said we just translate the materials into italian and french and spanish and change to the british spelling and then convert from dollars two pounds dollars to euros and everybody go at it and turns out. It's a lot more complicated than that. A and you know. We did learn fairly quickly that that was happening. But i think we probably didn't course correct as quickly as we should have no. In addition to that we didn't have a lot of time to course correct in part because we had some headwinds long against us on the sort of macro level at the time. Our model for growth was extraordinarily reliant on google for seo distributions the users could find out about yelp and there were some pretty anticompetitive behaviour is taking place on google search algorithm for which the european trade commission has continued to keep an investigation. Open almost single-handedly due to some of the government outreach efforts that we've sort of mounted abroad and some of that actually has translated back to the us to reopening up the ftc. Investigation against google so What that means in sort of less jargonese terms is google is making it really hard for us to get our name in front of users and to get users to learn about yelp and because that was so much a part of our user acquisition model with that being inhibitory. It was really difficult with the top of funnel being kind of narrowed. So i often like to describe us as medium-tech you know yelp is a well-known name. But we do not print money the way that some of the big tech companies do were not facebook were not and so we oftentimes a get hurt just like the little guys in some of the anticompetitive behaviour and be have to really thoughtful about how we're spending our money in time so what. We decided after about four years or so in europe was to stay focused on. Us in terms of monetization marketing. All that kind of stuff in part you have the largest consumer economy in the world under a single language and a single currency. So why wouldn't you make.

"Welcome back financial issues on dance it's great to be here six three six three eleven look there's new trade wars are worries I'm sorry new trade worries on the rise and maybe they're not worried based on what happened this morning compared to what was going on yesterday with that it is our crew rate at Cole critic goal topic that I'm gonna talk about here in a minute but I want to piggy back that all of what is going on with this our carnal virus Sam same case from F. I. S. M. news here in this studio what what stops Sam Hey there Dan I hate to be on the death watch right now but yeah right now we have about six hundred cases and seventeen deaths in total I do want to be clear that most of the people have died have been sixty or older I think primarily in their eighties there have been two victims under sixty one was forty eight and she had a pre existing condition I'm not really sure what it was but just want to make that clear and another person was fifty three and it appears that right now the people at the greatest risk are already in poor health or older which is pretty common with cases of flu and pneumonia anyway I believe something like fifty thousand people in the U. S. alone dying from pneumonia each year according to the CDC so it's hard to tell how severe this if it is or if it's just because it's a new strain of pneumonia that we're not sure how it's going to react at right now it would appear to me that it's just behaving typically like pneumonia it's just because were unsure about what it's going to do in the future what they were taking more precautions and there is a concern that some people have more mild symptoms like I was saying if you're young and healthy you're not gonna show as strong as symptoms is if you're older or are at a previous condition and some people don't even have a fever which is what they're really concerned about would travel and speaking of travel Wuhan and Hong Yang are both in lockdown World Health Organization is making clear that this is unprecedented and this is not their idea this is China's own precaution so China is a little bit concerned and I know there's no there's no they're not looking at a travel ban yet yeah that's true no well they're looking at travel man for these to speak Han and Yang Yang their dinner locking them down completely so don't no one goes in or out that's from my understanding most transport at least I imagine that's gonna move into a full lockdown it seems to me that they got to be a little bit more worried about this and then what they're leading on to believe let everybody now which which is reasonable I mean they don't want to create panic and so there's some some reason to that but yeah I know I know the world health organization's been very concerned about that too they're trying to the trying to be responsible with their response but at the same time it's not create unnecessary fear they're having a another meeting today just to address this and decide what they're going to do with it going forward well good stuff thank you Sam sure appreciate that Sir okay up to date however I have some good news from the World Health Organization yeah good let us know yes absolutely thanks so you know this I'm sure some of this concern focuses around you know what's going to happen to the economy everybody remembers all too well two thousand three it really impacted our economy when we had the sars outbreak and the last thing China needs is anything to slower impact is there a condom in a negative way that is for sure so what I have to just keep a watch on it and and I own it president on Tuesday say that let me let me out let me go back a little bit when I when I think think about there so president trump I stayed on Wednesday in Davos is that the European Union I had to get a line from a trade perspective if they don't then there is a possibility that we could see terror on their automobiles and that would be a huge concern that would probably I do their economy on by the way that would not be good for the American economy as well what would be a devastating situation or of course they would put down counterterrorist when armed all of our good so it's a concern of the European Union hi Jay yesterday that they really are in a place where they have no choice I know they don't like to be in a place where they have no choice but they're in a place where they don't have any choice and they have to negotiate a deal with the U. S. the head of the European trade commission said that on Tuesday told told that I heard that with out a deal and that he would have to implement this is president trump saying very hate having terrace on the cars and other things now this is and should be in the news and I'm much more dramatic way than it is the all the error in the news is being stocked up from impeachment unfortunately so while that's going on we're probably going to miss out on a lot of very difficult situations when it comes to market and the economy that we have got to be watching very closely show all when she says that we have got to make a deal with the your way I would hope they are about the business right down right now and doing that before this gets out of hand we have to have a fair trade agreement with the yours out there's no doubt about it and the other issue with all of this is not just automobiles but president trump told France and Italy that if they continue to move forward with the digital tax when American companies that they are going to get tears to very heavily now Marc Cohn said on Monday to that he and president trump that are very very good phone conversation about all this and think they were going to come to terms it only seems to be the bigger problem they don't seem to be budging much it only about a way out of the three largest economies in the eurozone can least afford to be messing around with this by they may just be dumb enough to go ahead and try and it's going to be a problem so president trump looking out for American companies over there these were the companies like Facebook Amazon Microsoft what are some I don't know I can't think of you know even naturally extend those other ones I mean it you know the this is these are digital companies and they would be getting hate with the digital tax as they continue to do business there and they can either pay the tax or walk away if they walk away they would have some sort of rebellion in the streets I would imagine but they could very easily just walk away I hope that's not the case watch so very very interesting as you watch this and will continue to stay yeah I can tell you this and I and I'm gonna say this in a in a more detailed way to the partners of the ministry but let me just on a conference call with me just say I am going to be spending the majority of my analytical time and and okay seen online is the the analytics of all of this from a financial perspective from an economic perspective all we can not we I guess I mean me I cannot afford to get too caught up in all the other garbage is going on both on Capitol Hill and some other issues but we've got to potential real problems between the virus this is a black swan event it's not something that we've anticipated obviously it's not something we know we do know from two thousand and three what a virus similar to this could do to the economy and it's not pretty it's not gonna be pretty for China especially there's not gonna be pretty for us here in America if it comes home so we don't watch that very closely as well and I've got to watch this very closely and see what happens we listen now we can not afford to have a pro long trade issue when the yours out I've been saying for a year and a half we need to be talking to the euro zone if we want to get to China we should be back door in China by cutting trade deals with the euro zone you remember about a year ago Angela Merkel came out and said we're ready to do something or autos we didn't take our up on it we didn't take the hint whatever you wanna call it but we didn't send over a team from the commerce department just sit down with them and talk about this it which is what I exactly what we should have done we have to remember we look at China and we think well you know what we're trying his biggest trading partner let me make something clear we are China's largest trading country we are not China's largest from a monetary perspective trading partners that would be the largest economy in the world which is the combined nations of the eurozone China needs the combined nations of the eurozone more than they need America even and we could have made great strides with China by cutting deals with our allies our brains some friends mostly friends we could have made it we could have made a lot of headway but I'd be I've beaten that horse so much and I I get that but none the less that's where we should have bought that we should have been all along we should've been dealing with your eyes out there they are true allies in in that area of the world we need to be talking to them we didn't now we're facing when faced with a possible crisis now the commerce department would say that this is exactly what they planned on happening was a pool got the eurozone to a place where their back is against the wall it is like a commerce commissioner minister in the yours I would say she what she said this morning that they have little choice they have little choice but to sit down and negotiate with the U. S. so maybe in the end I'll look back and say I was wrong it's all turned out to be a really good thing I hope that's the case we'll see anyway we've we've got a watch that and along with specials in China as they try to contain this this virus and now try to be careful that public shearers don't begin to spread along with a virus so much that we begin to have economic problems well we I I talked earlier about president trump and bean involved in the March for life tomorrow the only president that has ever done that and he is going to be there tomorrow speaking we've never had a pro life president.

"Let's get back to the conversation so you know we talk a lot about customers centrist city how to bring that into your strategy how to implement it at the executive active level. All the way down. How have you worked to bring this? Customer centric mindset to the leadership team YELP and You know as a means to drive eh outcomes that you're looking for and your role So it's interesting. yelp is a two sided marketplace. So we have to customers one customer for many years. got a lot more more of the attention from US internally and that is the consumer customer the actual folks who are going to. y'All been saying I feel like a Great Cup of Coffee Nearby Ryan or I need a plumber or whatever it might be and I would say We always have had a very strong. DNA internally of making sure that that customer mead need is met with strong advocacy for that customer across the board. I would say we are making massive improvements in the last couple of years. Who's in really thinking through and prioritizing our other customer which is small business customer and these are the people that run those coffee shops or the plumbers that operate those businesses? This and you know I think that internally. I've always been a pretty strong advocate for those customers in part because that's just the world came up yelp. I've been talking to our customers since the day I started right and and so you know there's lots of ways you can go about this. I think there's some really really cool structural ways to approach this within a company for example I know Ebay was is always see bears. YELP was always well respected for having what's called Ebay live which is an annual or bi annual event where the top sellers would come in to h q they would spotlight them. They were like movie stars internally. It'd be like Oh my Gosh Caitlin P. You're the one who sells all the reusable bill cups and spoons. We love you. Love your work. We Love your the marketplace you've created and so I think that some of those types of things we are starting a program called yelp voices which is very similar alert so I think having these types of structural things that really celebrate your customer are really important. I also think a lot of Beta feedback from or I guess feedback on Beta products from customers and having Beta communities and a square has done a really nice job of that and make sure you're getting really tight feedback loops having things like user research teams. That actually go out and bring you statistical research and marketing survey data. Those are really nice structural ways to do it but I also think it's take internally about just championing your customer. I mean if you sit in their meeting with me and in a conference room at our headquarters you'll definitely hear me use phrases repeatedly like like based on my intuition of our customers. I think Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah or If I can be an advocate for our small business customers in this conversation I would say Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. And so just making sure people understand with these customers. Are I think in our case the first part of our marketplace that I was talking about the consumer everybody concern is with that because everybody is a consumer but not everybody is a small business owner and not everybody has spent a lot of time talking to our small business owners. So it's really important that you have advocates hits who are well respected. Who can go out and kind of spread the customer Gospel as it were? It's great we had my Grad Board from hubs spot on a previous podcast and he talked about making leaking intentional decisions about the expensive things. You're going to continue to do. And I think some of these activities or actions is a great example of the the one or two places to continue you to go big and perhaps be expensive to bring that customer voice yeah to the forefront alright so Katie going back to yell and its journey over So many ears you know the business expanded into new markets across the US and really had its sights on international domination has since changed course so it'd be great to get your perspective on what drove that decision. And why you ultimately decided to stop pursuing your So we like many companies especially consumer Internet Internet companies had our sights set on international growth. I think for many companies. It's a great way to immediately expand your Tam. And that's always great for investors in verse shareholders and like most ambitious consumer Internet companies. We absolutely wanted to fulfil big dreams of being an international brand and still do so. We launched the user side so the actual dysfunctionality of y'all been writing reviews as early as two thousand ten was when we initially really went to Ireland and the UK and then sure enough kind of every quarter so we're adding on new countries. Yelp today exists in. I believe it's fourteen eighteen countries and you can use yelp in any of those countries in twenty twelve. We decided to open a business operations and actually start monetize ing and some of those countries and then in twenty twenty sixteen decided to pull back on monitoring so we just pulled back sales and marketing. But we've kept the actual user site open and what led us to kind of halt investing investing in Some of those areas is very complicated. we probably spend like to our podcast session talking about that and we can get geremia in here but if I were to try to summarize it you know I would start with accountability for some of the things that we didn't do quite right when we went international the I I was probably a pretty common refrain if you talk to most American companies who try to garner national. which is we tried to fit an American shaped peg into a European shaped hall? We basically said we just translate the materials in two Italian and French and Spanish and change to the British spelling and then convert from dollars two pounds dollars to euros and everybody go have at it and turns out. It's a lot more complicated than that and we did learn fairly quickly. That was happening But I think we probably didn't course correct as quickly as we should have no in addition to that We didn't have a lot of time. To course correct in part because has we had some headwinds blowing against us on this sort of macro level at the time. Our Model for growth was extraordinarily reliant on Google for Seo Seo distribution so the users could find out about yelp and there were some pretty anticompetitive behaviors taking place on Google search algorithm for for which the European Trade Commission has continued to keep an investigation. Open almost single-handedly due to some of the government outreach efforts that we've sort of mounted wanted abroad and some of that actually has translated back to the US to reopening up the FTC. Investigation against Google. So what that means. Sort of less jargon terms is google was being it really hard for us to get our name in front of users and to get users to learn about yelp and because that was so much a part of our or user acquisition model with that being inhibitory. It was really difficult with the top of the funnel being kind of narrowed so I often. I like to describe us as medium-tech Yelp as a well known name but we do not print money the way that some of the big tech companies do not facebook were not Google and so we oftentimes a get hurt just like the little guys in some of that anti-competitive behaviour and be have to really thoughtful about how we're spending our money and time so so what we decided after about four years or so in Europe was to stay focused on. US In terms of monetization marketing. All that kind of stuff in part of the largest consumer economy in the world under a single language in a single currency. So why wouldn't you make your life simple and make sure you are winning winning there before you try to make it more complex and take it to other markets other currencies different tax structures all that type of stuff and so we just decided. Hey let's really double down our efforts here. Let's make sure we're winning here. And then once we feel like we have really effectively unlocked a new user acquisition model. That's now is reliant on Google. Then we'll go back abroad. It's great so you talked about this American Square pay European round hole if I got that one right so any advice for companies that are looking to expand into new markets. arquette's any lessons learned about localization. That that you would like to share totally so I guess I would start with. If you're a company that is considering going International. I would say. Make sure that you're not just doing it for either ego or for sort of artificial fluffing of the Tam. Maybe maybe it's not artificial. It's too harsh way to put it because it is actually increasing the Tam. But if it's just about showing hey we know how to grow and we think we can do it abroad. You're introducing a whole new level of complexity into your business. And unless you have really one in that single largest consumer economy or feel like you have a strong enough foothold I would be conscientious about introducing that level of complexity until you have pretty clear dominance in the US markets. Now with that said I would also say go and inch wide and a mile deep and make sure you understand that every culture is different. Every country is different and this isn't just in terms of hate the language is different it literally literally means the value prop of what you bring to. Your customers may not resonate in other countries as an example so much of the value prop that we talk about. When we're talking to our customers is we you want to help you grow your small business? We WanNa get you more customers and if you call a British pub in the countryside. WHO's been there since before America was a country? They're probably not saying I want to triple my customer base in the next twelve months and that value prop is just falling on deaf ears so really understanding what your value prop is within the cultural context of that country and make sure you localize localized localized. I mean when I think about selling into Spain we didn't have a pinchas category on Yelp. And for those of you. Who aren't you know? Total foodies are a very specific type of cuisine and style of food found in San Sebastian in the Basque region. And you're never GONNA win in that region unless you have pinches as a category on. Yeah just be really thoughtful in terms of how you go to market get then understand that. Managing different teams with different cultures is really different. So a great example of this is in the US. We have a really robust sales culture with our our large sales organization. A big part of that is giving a lot of accolades and high fives to folks who are succeeding. And you know setting the pace as for the rest of the organization putting their face on a slide and monthly kickoff meetings. You know high fiving them in front of their peers. That type of stuff turns out in German Culture Alter I. It's actually not. As well received to be that one person who sort of lorded above everybody else and some motivating German sales employee is very different than motivating and American sales employees. So really understand as you build out organizations internally that you have to be culturally sensitive as well and then the final thing that relates exactly that is commit perjury. Hire the right people absolutely sage advice on international expansion. Thanks so much katy so turning our gaze to the the topic of leadership more broadly I did want to touch on your advocacy. Personally I supporting women and minorities emerging leaders in particular so talk to us a little bit about this Side of you and your career definitely. So I'm a big believer that Any great leader can be judged by the leaders. They've left in their trail. While saying great leaders don't just lead organizations. They actually create more great leaders and exceptional leaders do that with people who maybe are not otherwise culturally recognized as the obvious next choice like a woman in an engineering business or a person of color. WHO's coming through a white or male dominated industry and you know some of that is definitely just part of my personality and my personal belief system? I am feminist just as fuck and I really WanNa see a world where people can do what they wanna do without being edged out on necessarily but part of it is also that I am fucking competitive and I have. I've seen the numbers just like most people that diverse teams win. And you want a diversity of opinions gins and feedback and I also have this experience of being a female in a male dominated industry and for the most part pretty often being the only female in a lot of the meetings that I'm in and I had so many thoughts myself where I think. Jeez I know so many women in this organization or friends of mine. Who could do this if they were just giving the playbook so I think the sort of summary of all of those experiences and thoughts have led me to kind of making this a personal cause and personal I guess concept after topic that I'm a champion of for US internally at Yelp it's amazing so important great to hear your perspective so speaking of this kind of leaving a trail of amazing leaders behind can you. You know who did this for you. was there someone in your career. That really Kinda Candy. Do a playbook gave you the right opportunity Moved you across the world ten plus time. who were these people for you in your career? Yeah I would. I definitely have to go. Big Shout out to to folks who one of them is an ex helper and one of them is still a current yelp or the first is Erica Gal. Yoda who Was My first manager when I joined it yelp and she's still a very good friend and mentor..

"This is Colonel Denny Gillam. This is the final formation for this hour on frontlines of freedom. We're continuing our conversation with Brooke Goldstein from the l'affaire project about the anti semitism prevalent in our nation and also in the world. Brooke the bluff air project recently, applauded the appointment of Ilan car as a US anti-semitism on voi-. Is this a new position? What does that person do? So this is a really good question. I think it's not a new position they've had special envoys for anti-semitism before in prior administrations. But I think we have an opportunity right now along think cars a perfect person for this position on has a wonderful opportunity right now to work with the Trump administration and coordinate the US government's response to the rise anti-semitism abroad. And what's so unique about this offense is that the mission is really to don't between the US government and foreign governments and be an aide and provide the services, and assists, those foreign government and stemming the tide of anti-semitism properly enforcing their anti-discrimination laws to ensure that their Jewish community is are not being marginalized, and we have a situation where Belgium has banned ritual slaughter of animals they've banned kosher meat, and obviously allow me as well. Well, there's a civil rights issue there a human rights issue. There are just hereditary labeling laws being applied by the European trade commission by governments like France. Ireland is voting on a really horrific Bill that is meant to encourage commercial discrimination against Israeli Jews. So there's an environment that I think Ilan car has a lot of work to do. And I'm one hundred percent confident, but he'll be able to rise the task and change something because they're our allies. We do have a lot of allies in Europe. And I think that those voices are being drowned out very radical loud aggressive movement. And also, you know, it's important that with the digital age a lot of this is done through bought. I just read an article that described how when the finger Lord plants a plan, Israel or Twitter accounts weren't just bombarded with negative weak and messages and give. The impression that there was a change public outcry. And someone did a study on it and found out that it was something like like ninety five percent of the messages that were sent were done by we're automated, we're not real people. So I think we have to understand that and take advantage of a real allies and work diplomatically with foreign governments. And with the foreign governments own Lee is all on antisemitism and anti discrimination and enforce those bonds and likewise, very loudly and proudly advertised the fact that the two governments are working together and really empower the office of the special envoy. So that he can do his job. That makes a great deal of sense. It's crazy. Well, bias is crazy, but the classic example. And as I mentioned, I'm just back from Germany, the classic example of bias is Nazi Germany. They started with the Jews. But they sure didn't stop there. And it's really easy to rationalize and say well that was there. We don't have a Hitler, blah, blah. No virus doesn't work like that. Just look at history. Am I right? And I'll think by Germany. I mean, we have a case right now that's being appealed where we sued Kuwait Airways on behalf of an Israeli who attempted to book a ticket and was refused by Kuwait Airways. He tried to Frankfurt. I think it was to Bangkok, and it was a indirect root with a stop in between. And he was refused. The tickets because Kuwait Airways has a discriminatory policy. They refused to do business with his rallies. But this is in Germany. So you're the basic principle as a tenant of law. If you are have the rule of law is that if anybody wants to come into your country and do business, they're like Kuwait Airways came to Germany, or if anyone came to the United States do business here in order to avail yourself of the privilege of doing business in our jurisdiction. You've gotta follow our lot. So you can't pay for him watch from Saudi Arabia, and it is legal to hit your wife there there for when I live in Germany, I can beat my wife even of violation of German lot. It doesn't make. So how can you say, well, we have a policy in Kuwait, and it's a discriminatory policy where we target Jews. So we wanna come to business Germany and have our airline and have our docking and in German airport and fly and make money from German passengers, but we're going to discriminate against Jews. And that's exactly what quite areas dead, and the trial court ruled against and said that actually you can't come and do business in Germany and non abide by German law. And obviously there was public outcry. And there was a lot of media attention on it. And there are features on our client. And there were a lot of very positive statements from German government officials who are very high up, including after the minister of transport came out very publicly against Kuwait Airways because very shocking. I mean for ruling especially in light of Nuremberg, and when holocaust survivors still alive for German court role. But it's okay to discriminate in Germany is outrageous. Though, there was public outcry. And we are looking forward to the appeal of the case, and we're very confident that a German higher court will overturn the decision. Well, I just want to say at the same time. Obviously everybody is following if we're gonna dovetailed what else is happening in Germany, the alliance between Germany or the cooperation I would say between Germany and other European governments with Iran in terms of opening up the markets fair and circumventing reapplication of US sanctions and so forth. And there was a story. I recall correctly, a planeload of cash being flown or proposed to be sold from Germany to fund Iran to circumvent sanctions, and that obviously is equally as disturbing if not more disturbing and the whole Kuwait Airways Esco, well, there is no shortage of bias. And it is evil. You can't say it's okay to be biased against one group of people. But it's not okay to be biased against somebody else. Biased is and this is pretty much intuitive. I think evil so where do we go from here? Brooke take a minute make a couple of key points you'd like people remember, and then explain to our listeners how they can plug into support know what's going on with the law fair project. Okay.
