The Kidnapping of Sherri Papini

"Thanksgiving Day November twenty fourth fourth two thousand and sixteen Keith Papina says he got up early that day and at four thirty am his cell phone rang now this call comes in and he says it's a number. He did not recognize so he didn't answer his phone. It's an unknown caller yeah then the home phone own is ringing to which he does answer the home phone and he told twenty twenty th it was his wife screaming in the background yelling his name and a police officer to which he could hear the officer telling the wife that she needed to be calm. She needed to calm down twenty two days as after she vanished Sherry papina turned up one hundred fifty miles away from her home she was found in Yolo county around four. Am I am on the side of an entrance ramp to the northbound I five highway. This is near county road seventeen a female motorist Chris Allison Sutton called police upon seeing a frantic woman roadside waving what she believed to be shirt now. Alison says she didn't stop because she wasn't certain that this whole situation was safe for her to sny she does this. Maybe a crazy person on the side of the road a second driver ever this was a truck driver he he did stop and he called police. Sherry Pechiney was found she was clothed in light gray race sweat pants and a dark gray sweatshirt. I point out what she was found in because this is not what she was wearing when she went missing there was there's also a chain wrapped around her waist and her left wrist was tether to the chain with a zip tie. According to the local papers specifically the Sacramento Bee and the redding record searchlight Sherry also had hose clamps around her ankles to which sergeant agent Brian Jackson said quote appear to have acted as pain compliance restraints is very important to understand that nearly everything anything we know about Sheri's ordeal and her release we know from her husband. Keith Sherry has never made a public statement statement. She is never she's not even appeared in public at all about this and the sheriff's office the Shasta County Sheriff's Office. They've only really addressed any of these circumstances regarding Sheri's ordeal possibly because they feel they've been forced to because of Keith's public statements we'll present what he says what key says and then we'll address. What if anything thing we actually know to be true so I'm GonNa paraphrase some of this stuff the follows but this is what Keith told old twenty twenty about Sheri's release? He says that she was bound that she had a chain around her waist. She had a bag over her ahead. He says he can't remember if it was her right or her left arm that was chained to the chain but one of her ours ars was chained to the chain and then the other hand was chained to something inside the vehicle and to be clear the interviewer wants to clarify and says this is to make sure that she didn't jump out of the vehicle to which he says yes now. He says at some point they hey cut something to free her restraint that was holding her to the vehicle then they pushed her out and they drove away Sherry had one hand hand free and took the bag off of her head and at this point. She has no idea where she is. She runs to a house to which she doesn't. I'd say she says to him that it didn't look to be like a good idea so she then ran to another building but couldn't get inside the building and that's when she chose to run to the freeway and how far away is she found from her actual home a hundred and fifty miles so quite a distance yeah and he goes on to tell twenty twenty that she's you know she's screaming. She's Coughing Ping. He says that she's coughing up blood and screaming trying to get people to stop you know get a vehicle to stop so they can help her but she tells him that she thinks that because of the chains the chain wrapped around her that maybe people thought she escaped from a prison or or escape from somewhere that you know the she was a bad person and maybe that's why they wouldn't stop so so she purposely tried to hide the chain to try to get somebody to stop and eventually we know that somebody did stop why I guess she was severely beaten as well aww she had a broken nose and she had bumps. It seemed like all over Faso that this could be an you know. I don't know if there was any dried blood blood or what the bruising situation would be but that that could startled somebody the twenty twenty broadcast they played a radio transmission that that summoned the ambulance to the scene where Sherry was found. You can hear radio chatter but what what I heard in there says attention station eight unknown medical problem. It's going to be north on. I five female needs medical attention. She is heavily battered attard. It's going to be some sort of assault now. Keith after the phone call he rushes to the Woodland Memorial Hospital this to see his wife Life Sherry. He says when he got to share his room he was horrified. He told Good Morning America quote nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see upon my arrival at the hospital nor the details of the true hell I was about to hear my first sight of my wife in a hospital bed her her face covered in bruises ranging from yellow to black because of repeated beatings the bridge of her nose broken her now emaciated create a body of eighty-seven pounds was covered multicolored bruises severe burns Red Rashes and chain markings her signature long blonde blonde hair had been chopped off she had been branded and I could feel the rise of her scabs under my fingers and quote the Shasta County Sheriff's office well their information has been much less detailed than that of her husband and authorities actually expressed frustration that Keith revealed so much information to the media right because this is ongoing investigation so he says that her her injuries the way he describes it. This is pretty severe stuff right. Yeah the the thing that would kind of go against that is is this regarding the severity of her injuries. Sherry Pechiney was released from the hospital and went to a hotel hell with her husband that same day right and this according to the sheriff she was treated for her injuries and released just as someone would be see if they had sprained an ankle. That's what the Sheriff said Yeah but the Sheriff did say that they were were ecstatic to report fort that Sherry did she was located and had been reunited with her family right in but to be on the side of Keith and his wife look at some of these brutal. UFC fights people go five rounds twenty five minutes of punching each other in the face and kickin each each other in the shins and these guys barely can walk out of the octagon their faces look to form. They look awful. During the press conferences they go get checked out by the doctor and then they're they're sat away. The investigators from the Major Crimes Unit did speak with Sherry. This was briefly in the hospital and then they he did question her at length five days later after she recovered from these injuries. According to Sheriff Saco Sherry was quote. Oh cooperative and courageous in the intense and traumatic interviews with investigators he said Sherry reported the following. She said that she was abducted by two Hispanic women in a dark colored. SUV with large rear windows she had no other description of the vehicle goal and she could not identify on any video surveillance footage taken in the area around the time of her abduction note that the sheriff's chiefs office never came out and said that Sherry was definitely abducted while on her run we know that to be believed to be the case ace by her family beforehand all right. So what else have we done. Sherry only gives the officers a let's say vague description seven of her abductors right and she went on to tell police that she avoided looking at them so they would not beat her and that her head was covered for or some of the time that she was held captive and we don't know how dark it was in this place or anything yeah yeah there again. We have vague descriptions of everything because we're hearing this. This is what Sherry tells the police and this is what they have chose to release to to the public. She says that one of the women note. She says that she was abducted by two women one of the women had a long curly hair are thin eyebrows and pierced ears. She had a thick accent and she appeared to be between twenty and thirty years old about five foot put five inches tall suspect number two according to Sherry was older. Maybe forty to fifty years of age about five afoot seven and had straight black hair with some gray she had thick eyebrows and pierced ears both were armed with handguns John's. She said that the kidnappers drove for about two and a half hours non. Stop on the first day. The kidnappers spoke Spanish most of the time the female captors were the only two people with whom Sherry had contact with for the duration of her captivity but Sankoh confirmed this she was bound with this restraints when she was found and Jackson the other officer said that Sherry had been branded on her right shoulder older after and appeared battered and bruised they they actually think this branding was something like actually said something yeah yeah. The description I read was that the brand appeared to be a message rather than a symbol but whatever it is. It's unclear what it what it's intended the to be. I think they know what it is or at least the the rumors that I heard is they know what the messages they're not releasing that to the public okay I I had saw that it was illegible. They couldn't make anything out of it but I don't know that to be true so I don't Wanna I don't WanNa steer anybody the wrong the other way I mean that's pretty creepy that somebody would brand you and not just brand new with some symbol but some type of message Sherry told investigators is that she was not sexually assaulted. we do have investigators. That Dick did confirm that Sherry's hair was shoulder length when she was found now. I do want to point out that a lot of people suspected Sheri's exceedingly long hair was actually extensions that were may have just been removed. the the thing here to give the best description to those out there listening is that when she was found her hair was not what I would call short. It was just shorter it was it was shoulder length at the time now Sherry told detectives that just before she was released she could hear her captors. Having an argument it followed by a gunshot she said the younger of her abductors then took her from the room where she was being held captive drove her down a winding road and dropped dropped her off near interstate five a be on the lookout immediately went out for a dark colored SUV with two Latino Tino women but everyone acknowledged that in California that description well it didn't go very far on the day after Sherry was found her sister held a press conference and she was reading a statement that was prepared by Sharee and Keith

Mosquito-Killing Fungus

"One down endless numbers to go. You know there's been a lot of research lately about how we can get rid of malaria carrying mosquito populations walk. One way might be to use a transgenic fungus. There's a certain fungus found in the wild that already infects and kills insects but a team of researchers made it a whole a whole lot more deadly they genetically modified it to produce a toxin derived from the Venom of the Australian Blue Mountains funnel web spider to to test whether it could decrease mosquito populations researchers constructed a structure in Burkina Faso that contain chambers with huts plants pools and food food. They hung a piece of black cloth soaked in sesame oil inside a hut in each of three chambers one sheet had oil mixed with the transgenic fungus one had oil mixed with naturally occurring fungus and one with just oil then scientists released thousand male mosquitoes and five hundred female email mosquitoes into a chamber after forty five days the population in the chamber with this transgenic fungus went down to just thirteen mosquitoes ddos in the chamber with naturally occurring fungus it went down to four hundred fifty five and in the one with plain oil to thirteen hundred ninety six the female mosquitoes infected with the fungus also laid far fewer eggs than normal. It was important to the scientists to use materials like cotton and sesame oil that are relatively inexpensive accessible so regular people can implement the technique if the fungus becomes affordable and accessible as well our mall all four that idea this moment science comes from Indiana University.

"Least forty refugees and migrants are feared dead. After a boat carrying dozens of people across the mediterranean sea on route to europe europe capsized tuesday morning off the coast of libya according to the libyan coast guard some sixty five migrants and refugees mostly from sudan were rescued with the help of local fishermen the associated press reported at least five people were confirmed dead including women and child from morocco whose bodies were recovered near the western town of homes seventy five five miles east of tripoli with tuesday's tragedy the number of migrants and refugees who've lost their lives in the mediterranean in two thousand nineteen is it's up to nine hundred just last month about one hundred fifty people including children mostly from africa drowned off the coast of libya in a separate shipwreck brek according to the un high commissioner for refugees rescue operations for the latest migrants shipwreck continued to be underway the final death toll may be even higher this latest this disaster comes as far right european leaders like the italian deputy prime minister and minister of the interior matteo salvini continue to criminalize refugees and migrants this as well as humanitarian aid workers who often lead search and rescue missions in the atlantic in the mediterranean this june police in italy arrested corolla rakhat the thirty one year old german captain of the sea watch rescue ship after vessel collided with an italian border police boat when she attempted to docket and italian alley in port and in two thousand seventeen pia clamp also a member of c watch was arrested at the same port and charged with assisting so-called illegal immigration clamps currently awaiting trial and faces up to twenty years in prison if convicted for more we go to geneva where we're joined by charlie oxley u. N. high commissioner for refugees jeez global spokesperson for mixed migration mediterranean and africa welcome to democracy now charlie actually can you explain what just happened this latest shipwreck shipwreck and what the casualties are well once again we morning yet another the tragic incident resulting from people trying to flee the war and violence <hes> in libya. The rescue operation is still underway a but what we understand from our teams who are there on the ground speaking with survivors a boat left in the early hours of yesterday morning very soon came into distress appears the forty people who have now drowned on the mediterranean and and this is just the latest and a series of drownings people taking these similar similar journeys to this one each time we do see a outpouring of public sympathy empathy expressed from all corners but we're calling now for those sentiments to be translated into meaningful action u._n._h. This house proposed a way forward. There's a number of ways we can improve search and rescue capacity at sea and get refugees libya so they don't take these boats in the first place but this situation cannot continue as is so explain who was in this ship before and it <hes> before before the shipwreck and explain why they couldn't get to land this group <hes> it's very similar to the kinda groups. We often see departing from libya. It's a mixed group of people of refugees and migrants around a third from refugee producing country so in the east and west of africa we currently have more than fifteen unresolved conflicts insecurity in different areas and particularly in places like a retriever aaron and somalia and sudan in in the east. Mali and burkina faso's in the west people. They're fleeing ongoing fighting by armed groups and are in need of refugee protection at the same time we do see secondary movement from countries neighboring those countries because their asylum silence systems are in need of strengthening and then needs to be strategic development assistance when people don't feel safe and feel they're able to make the most of economic opportunities that will allow them in their families to survive we see a rising trend of people putting their hands in that lives in the hands of smugglers and traffickers who commit a range of human rights abuses and they're responsible for putting people in these flimsy and uh unseaworthy boats that have often little hope of reaching dry land unattached court ruled two weeks ago that the spanish humanitarian ship open arms which choose waiting off the italian island of lampedusa carrying nearly one hundred fifty rescued migrants and refugees should be allowed to dock in italy. This was in defiance of a ban by italy's as far right interior minister and deputy prime minister matteo salvini in a statement issued by his office savini said quote. I continue and we'll continue denied landing to those those who claim to bring illegal immigrants always and only in italy savino also said he'll continue to defend italy's borders and say quote no to disembarking. Can you talk about the significance what this means for migrants that say this is different legal and logistical restrictions being placed on them mm-hmm therefore needs to be acknowledged and supported and not criminalized no stigmatize there are suggestions by some that these ngos <hes> collaborate with smugglers aid illegal migration but we see no evidence for that at different times teams in the last year there have been no ngo boats operating search and rescue on the central mediterranean and yet actually the average number of departures has increased when we look more closely at the situation it becomes clear that it's the push factors that people leaving behind line the wall violence and human rights abuses the escalating violence in libya since april has a much bigger motivating factor than any any kind of potential pull factor of the presence of ngo booze pant clamp. The german captain of a refugee rescue ship who now faces is prison time in italy after rescuing hundreds of refugees in the mediterranean has refused to accept award given her in july on behalf of the city of paris paris clump wrote on facebook last week that paris mayor hidalgo and the city of paris pope one award a medal for my solid darrien action in the mediterranean sea because our crews worked to rescue migrants from difficult conditions on a daily basis at the same time. You're police are stealing blankets from people. Oh you forced to live on the streets while you raid protests and criminalize people that are standing up for rights of migrants and asylum seekers clem said she was awarded the grandville metal last month alongside caroline raquet. <hes> fellow member of the refugee rescue organization see watch two years ago. Oh clemson ship was seized by authorities in italian port and choose eventually church with assisting so-called illegal immigration. She's currently awaiting trial facing up to twenty years in prison if convicted charlie actually if you could comment on the stakes for people who are trying to help those who might diet see and are well. I think the frustrations frustration sees expresses. The <hes> understandable i mean ngop boats are picking up people who are in a desperate state. That's be clear people. Don't take these boat vote journeys. They are aware that these journeys could often be fatal and nobody puts their own lives and the lives of their families at risk in that way unless they feel the better off on the water on the land so when ngos pick the pick people up in rescued him in the see. They're all well. Dean is not then over there then stranded at sea for days on end while states have often engaged in political back and forth trying to see who can most shift responsibility onto others. I think what's needed now is for the toxicity in the political michael debate to be removed and more objective perspective to come in here. The number of arrivals reaching european shows are really down significantly -nificant. We're no longer in a situation like we saw in twenty fourteen in the immediate years that followed where we saw incredibly high numbers way back to pre-crisis levels but yet deaths remained broadly the same <hes> so we're no longer in a crisis of arrivals here we're in a crisis of deaths in and that needs to be some soul searching about whether european willing to engage with people who are seeking asylum on their doorstep sta. You have said one in six or one in seven people die at sea. Can you explain where they are dying. What what is the route. They're taking and talk about why libya is such a critical place for them and where they're coming from

It Looked As Though Millions Of Babies Would Miss Out On A Lifesaving Vaccine

"Two million. That is the number of babies who were at risk. Because the pharmaceutical company, Merck stopped providing lifesaving doc seen to several west African countries at the same time. Merckx was going to start selling the vaccine at a higher price to China NPR broke that story last fall. And now we have good news to report those babies will still get the vaccine as NPR's. Mike, lean do cleft reports other companies are now stepping in the vaccine is for a disease called Rotavirus, which infects basically. Every child on the planet every child. Whether you live in the US so you live in doping country is infected with this disease. That's Dr mature Santo, Shem Johns. Hopkins University pediatrician in an expert on Rotavirus. He says the disease causes very severe diarrhea here in the US children can easily get treatment at a hospital, but in poor countries without good healthcare systems would've virus can be deadly. It can be a very severe disease. Like I've seen kids died in front of my eyes. Santos says Rotavirus still kills about two hundred thousand children in babies each year. Because families in poor countries can't afford the vaccine here in the US it cost about two hundred dollars a course. So back in two thousand twelve the two companies that manufactured a vaccine Merck GlaxoSmithKline agreed to drastically, reduce the price for low income countries to about ten dollars a course Merck would supply four countries in west Africa in GlaxoSmithKline with supply, forty two countries. Cintos says this was great news could should not be denied vaccine, just because they belong to a poor country. Muck stuck to that agreement for six years, then last year, the company announced it was ending the agreement at the same time, Merck started selling the vaccine to China and a much higher price. Deborah Athalie is at the nonprofit path, which helps develop vaccines for poor countries. She says the global health community was alarmed. You have a, a major manufacturer of a vaccine announcing that they're going to exit from the market. And I think it created a bit of a panic for countries that were accustomed to having this vaccine. It also meant that more than two million babies in Burkina Faso Ivory coast. Mali in Sao Tome, Principe would go without the vaccine. That was November two thousand eighteen at the time. Moore told NPR in an Email that the reason for the pilot was supply constraints. The company also expressed quote, deepest regret to all the parties involved. Soon after NPR reported that story other vaccine manufacturers stepped up to fill in the gap. Glaxosmithkline is now supplying one country with the vaccine, and Athalie says to Indian companies Bharat biotech in serum institute of India will supply, the other countries in thirty says, no child will miss out on immunization because of Merck's termination of the agreement. We do not anticipate that any countries will have a gap in vaccinating their children. And so you think of this is a pretty big success story. It, it is we deal with tons of challenges in global health, and this is one where the global health community rallying around with the countries has really created success a success. That means millions of babies will now be protected

The issue ahead of the climate action summit that he's convened in September in New York speaking in New Zealand, two young Maoris and people of the Pacific islands mister Gutierrez to express his gratitude to them for highlighting the importance of limiting global temperature increase to no more than one point five degrees. Centigrade above preindustrial levels by the end of the century. The UN chief also recognized the important role played by generation zero a New Zealand based youth led organization that provides solutions to cutting carbon pollution through smarter transport and independence from fossil fuels mister Gutierrez insisted that three steps would make a major difference to addressing climate change a carbon tax as opposed to a salary Levy ending fossil fuel subsidies and stopping the construction of new coal plants by twenty twenty. In a related development. Indigenous Australians are to ask a you and human rights committee to investigate its claim that the government is doing too little to limit climate change. According to reports Torres Strait islanders in the north of the country say that global warming is a threat to this viral. Thanks to rising seas tidal surges and coastal erosion, they maintained that the lack of action by the authorities is a threat to the human rights as part of their claim. The group is calling for the UN panel, which is one of ten human rights committees that meet regularly throughout the year in Geneva too cool for Austrailia to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions. An attack by gunmen on H urchin Burkina Faso that left six people dead, reportedly, including a priest has prompted widespread condemnation from senior u n officials including secretary General Antonio, Gutierrez, according to media at the attack took place in the town of Dablo situated in a region that has seen a spike in violence in recent months.

Three people separately from each other talk to me about noticing increasing drug abuse, increasing suicide attempts and prostitution, and they put this down to the places. Collapsing. Socially in socio, economic terms and one can see it. And of course in a background against a background like that. Again, esscalation is possible at any time.

Of course, we have the ball game. That's happening. So just in case you're sitting in your office right now. And you're thinking when is the best time to go. Yeah. If you can go now, I would do. So because when the ball game gets out all bets are off. And we're gonna see a big push reaching the or outside of the downtown corridor flew here with a word.

"I I was swimming with charts in Belize, and yet everything that has to do to do with water for me the challenge 'cause I'm a very bad swimmer and an even this. I was following the charge on that was following so far when I was in in in belief that it was a moment I found myself like surrounded by chocks and Alan in the middle of are not people were near to the boats, and I was very far. So I got an leader care, and I also like star screaming for help. I was like, oh my. I'm gonna ride here. What the hell I'm doing here remain bag. I'm very about Seymour. I also did for example. My divan license. I open water the open water coups in Honduras, and I was like I don't know if I can do these kind of sweet here you can do. But anyway, something that I won't do if I go back home. I think the first thing that comes to my mind after this charge on Hyannis talking a I went to to a place in when I was in Burkina Faso that it was it was a very very dangerous like everybody was set him in note to go there by any chance is in the desert, and they had a lot of kidnapping phase with Tori's on all these tough. But they told me they have like some of the most beautiful most light Sudan style. Mosque there. They have seven beside another one was I feel good. I wanna see I wanna see one as the ice. Oh pictures. I want to go there. I wanna go there. And I. Tried to go three times. So far going on at the end. I did. And I thought I was very various care on the whole trip. But I I was communicated times. It'll be fine. I'm glad I did it Batuta. But yeah, that's that's one of the scenes that finger order, go back home. Why did I do that? Yeah. That's some of the examples that come to my mind, okay? In talking about arcane Afonso, I understand that you may great friends with three policemen. If I did. In towns. Like, I think the neat thing about that story is just like you have the salsa network in burkina-fasso sounds like you have the police network. So explain how were absence from policemen to policemen. Dow's so may thin I was in do go the teleworking of us, and I had a friend there, and he'd I told he okay, Charlie Iran for for for a week or sons in left. My bag knew what do I'm gonna come back down to a road trip and combat city. He was known, but how you wanna go there alone, traveling alone. I said don't worry I'm used to you are female. No, no, I'm gonna take it to the bus station. I'm going to see what can do for you. Okay. So he took me by motive. I wanted to take the bus to go to the next city. And then he talked to somebody there on he has these guy or you're going to see could you please help these. I feel bad. She's alone that get fair. He was all don't worry on the police. Span knows is going to happen to her man. The guy that you have to see this..

"The best results possible. Whatever results you come up with are probably going to be way better than the users hoping for and as engineers and artists at apple. They want to make the best picture possible. But this is the reason why I stopped doing side by side by side by side, like published comparisons years ago. Oh, because I do think there at this point they're totally counterproductive. They will teach you that they'll, they'll, they will get you to try to trust test result. Instead of your own is the fact that one picture is a little bit too warm to your is compared to this other picture. Okay. But that doesn't mean that that's something that you would have noticed if you didn't have the side by side comparison and it's not as though you're gonna take every single picture and think, oh my God, this this cameras always taking yellow photos. I can't stand it so real. It's it's interesting for people who are paid to comment about this super interesting to read stuff from experts who absolutely know their stuff, and they're not simply saying, well, it took these three pictures. I took these three pictures with us three cameras, and I noticed that the skin is let's booth them this one. The question is, did you not like the picture that the iphone took an I having having seen enough of these examples? I don't. I don't have an I knew iphone yet, but having seen these examples, I would like to see apple fine tune that a bit. I expect that they're going to, but it doesn't take anything. Less than fantastic pictures. Argue with you on that in certain conditions, it doesn't. Apple's goal is completely reasonably to let average people get great pictures without thinking about it. But here's a good example this on the right is iphone smart HDR and you could see the smoothing that's happened to the singer's face as completely obliterated detail. I mean, it looks like a watercolor, hey, lights, smart HDR does preserve the detail and the singers Faso in low light situations. For instance, there there are some problems. And he points out you can turn off, which I didn't know Apple's HDR you. It's a, it's a kind of non obvious, but you go to settings camera disabled, smart, HDR. And then when you open the camera app, you'll have an HD are setting in the top controls. So that gives you a chance to turn it off at our on when you want it and there are times you may not want it. You should also smart HDR that might be the it's just the old age. I have to check that. Yeah. I mean, there are definitely some issues in the halide is the perfect solution for it either. So you know, it'd be nice if apple what would be really nice if apple did a j. peg or a high efficiency image format image that was using all the smarts maybe over smoothing, maybe not. And then gave you switch to said, okay, or you could just have the raw. You can turn on keep both images. So you'll get the the regular and the HDR saved here camera problem is you're getting this apple smart raw, which is a little less than. You're talking to like a nerd who like owns like way more cameras than he actually needs. And even I'm saying that I think that the better job, you do of hiding things like raw features from the user given what people are using the given what one of these one hundred million iphone users are using it for the less confusion you're going to create. I love the idea of putting. I'm not always a fan of apple collecting every application preference inside the this, this extra called settings. But I like these solutions that say, if you are, if you are interested enough in having raw quality, you will have done the Google search, or you re, we'll have read the books manual be created for you, and you will know to look into this settings, settings, pain, and turn on raw raw capture, and I commend apple to this doing this, make it possible for third party apps like halide. Yeah, slightly bypass the processing and do their own. Thing, and I think that's the that may be the best of both worlds. That's an that's an under under under understood part of development. Apple, oftentimes people, people who've been developing for apple for a long, long, long, long time, develop, really, really good relationships with engineers inside of apple. And so it's possible for.
