Fresh update on "finland" discussed on Balance of Power
"Radio. I'm David Weston, NATO foreign minister has been meeting today in Brussels, and at the beginning of the meetings, secretary general Jens Stoltenberg set the tone. She said, critical time for our security. And we are sending an important message. NATO is here. NATO is vigilant and NATO is ready to defend every inch of allied territory. To go into some detail about what NATO is doing and should be doing, welcome that rose go to lawyer. She's a lecturer at Stanford University and the former deputy secretary general of NATO. So thank you so much for being with us. Really appreciate it. So we heard there yen sultan saying, we're going to stick with Ukraine. We're going to need, what does it need? I was really taken by foreign minister Kool-Aid comments. He's the foreign minister of Ukraine. He joined the foreign ministers of NATO for this meeting and he said, what we need are patriot air defense missiles and transformers to repair the electricity grid. So very succinct, very sharp message from kuleba. And he said, more faster, faster, faster. So that I think is the message that Ukraine imparted to the NATO foreign ministers today. And it seems like from the results I'm seeing coming over the wires that the NATO foreign ministers responded and are ready to deliver both continued missile defense capabilities and really the military it has been so important, but also then to begin to look more at providing for humanitarian assistance, including two repair of the electricity grid. Well, if we start with patriot missile batteries, do we have the capability as I understand we don't have that many of them. Certainly not that many of them in Europe. Do we have them that we could provide Ukraine if we wanted to? No, it's a very good point that patriot missiles are rather few and far between. They are the best air defense capabilities that the alliance has. But it's not like they are the only air defense capabilities at NATO is offering up at this point. They range from frankly old Soviet era S 300 systems that were in the arsenals of the former Warsaw Pact countries that are now members of NATO's countries like Romania, where the foreign ministerial is being held today. So they have been providing some of those older systems which the Ukrainians, of course, know how to use very well indeed, but they are also providing some of the more modern NATO systems that range up to patriot as the really the most effective of those systems. But you're quite right. It is a strain on NATO and on NATO's production of military equipment across the board to keep these supplies coming. So it is really, I would say an intensive commitment of resources by NATO to keep the military assistance flowing. What we've seen in recent days appears to be Russia's concentrated effect attempt to strike by missile and otherwise on the power grid of Ukraine, which has really had material effect as I understand it throughout the country. I see reports that a lot of Ukrainians don't have power more than something like four hours a day. What can we do about that? Can we protect against the missile strikes or when they occur? Can we supply power quickly enough to protect the Ukrainians? No, it's been dreadful seeing these overhead maps of Ukraine completely dark and surrounded by light in Europe and in Russia. So the Russians have had a profound effect on the electricity grid, as well as water supplies in Ukraine. And so it's a major humanitarian crisis that they have caused by their bombing campaign. So the Ukrainians have been remarkably effective shooting down all of the kinds of missiles at the Russians have been throwing at Ukraine, including drone strikes as well. Lethal drone strikes so they've been rather good but some are clearly getting through and causing severe damage. So that's the meaning of a continuing to up the missile defense game for the Ukrainians getting them more missile defense equipment. At the same time, I think looking at it in a very large sense. This is an interesting evolution because Ukraine in effect now is going in the direction of more distributed generation of electricity. They are not going to have because it's being destroyed by the Russians, the same kind of super centralized Soviet era grid that they have depended on in the past, so I suppose one could say from a silver lining point of view that in the long term they'll be better off developing more of a distributed energy generation capability. But I, to be honest with you, know that at the moment, the rush is on just to get the heat back on and the lights back on. And so whatever that takes, I'm sure that NATO, as well as European Union experts will be will be really contributing. As we try to appear a little bit in the future here, what are the likely effects more broadly about real alliances, particularly in the European area. Are there other countries that are actually asking for more protection from NATO now than they did before? Well, it's remarkable Putin had in mind that he wanted less NATO close to Russian borders, but he's going to end up with more NATO close to Russian borders because of course Finland and Sweden have asked to join NATO, the foreign ministers of those two countries were at the ministerial today and are continuing to work with the members of NATO member states of NATO to get through the ratification process and all the NATO parliaments. Clearly, turkey has some issues that it's still working, particularly with Sweden, but my view is that there will be actually more NATO close to Russian borders before too long with Sweden and Finland joining in. Okay, thank you so much, really appreciate you being with us always. That's rose got him or she's a lecturer at Stanford University and former deputy secretary general of NATO. President Biden earlier met with congressional leadership about the lame duck session. And after that, the mister
What's Next for the Ukrainians?
"Let's get right to the essential thing, which is the Ukrainian winter offensive. Two stories about this in The New York Times that Ukraine expects to go over to the offensive. Now, I don't, I'm not a military experience. I just read the books about the winter war in Finland. And the Russians, you know, what do you think are the odds that any significant change in the battlefield will occur now that winter is descending upon Russia and its neighbor Ukraine? I think the odds of a significant shift are low, but not impossible because of the ongoing collapse of Russian brow. Having said that, you are sufficiently tuned in to military tactics to know that offense is. One is to three meetings. You got to have three times as many troops on offensive overcome a dug in component and that's why the Russians had a lot of trouble at the front end of the Ukrainian defense, Russia didn't have that three to one ratio overwhelmed them. Now, down south, the Ukrainians who have to come up with the three to one. But here's how they're compensated. They're using special force brilliantly. They are used in the advanced Thrones. They are maneuvering around and cutting out supply lines. So there's a balance there. What I'm watching also suited to kind of conclude an overview is the electric grid on the Ukrainian side. You know, in a sense, we're in a tale of two wars here. One is the groundwork to the south. Ukrainian winning. But in the air war over you in the strike against the electric grid going into the winter very significant. That's the other war we ought to be focused on.
Finland to start building fence on Russian border next year
"Construction of a planned barbed wire fence along Finland's long border with Russia will start early next year amid concerns in the Nordic country over the changing security environment in Europe In October Finnish prime minister sanna Marin said there was consensus among lawmakers to build offense to cover parts of the border with Russia in a project that's estimated to cost nearly $400 million and scheduled to be completed by 2026 It will eventually extend to a maximum of 124 miles It will be erected mainly in southeastern Finland where most border traffic to and from Russia takes place I'm Charles De Ledesma
Why Diversity Is Not Our Strength
"So I was thinking about this in Denmark last week, always listed as one of the top happy countries, Finland number one. The people who assess these things have biases, most people do. And they believe that the more of your needs that are taken care of by the state, the less you have to take care of yourself. And the more the state does, the happier you will be. So I think it is true that you will be more content, I don't know that you will be happier. Happy people look at their lives as one of achievement, whether it is in the micro, making a family, or the macro in the professional life. And I don't think content and happy are the same thing. I also might note again and again and again. One of the many lies of the left is that diversity is our strength. It's just not true. The least diverse countries are the happiest.

Assessing the Biden Damage
"Staggering destructive disservice that Joe Biden did to this country in the western world and to the young people of America in particular celebrating a young person quote unquote transitioning. It was one thing, as I said, will you tolerate people who are different, understood? You certainly don't persecute. But to celebrate as president of the United States, this will go down in history. Once this age of hysteria and mania passes, and it's passing in Europe, by the way, Spain, Sweden, Britain, those are the ones I remember. There are many more. They're all a Finland, they're all basically stopping this stuff with young people. Joe Biden and the Democrats of the United States celebrated. At this at this time in the world, the United States is the producer of the worst ideas. The exporter of the worst ideas. As some one who has loved this country all his life because of all the good it is done, I just have to acknowledge all the bad it is doing. I am not a blind fan. Of my country. I am a sighted fan of my country.
NATO 'Closely' Watching Baltic Sea Situation, Sabotage Suspected
"NATO official has told newsweek that the U.S. led western military alliance is carefully watching the Baltic Sea in the wake of suspicious incidents that targeted twin pipelines designed to bring gas from Russia to Germany. A NATO is monitoring the situation in the Baltic Sea closely. The NATO official said allies are looking into the gas leaks and exchanging information also with Finland and with Sweden as well. Sudden drops in pressure were first detected Monday by the operators of the Nord stream one and Nord stream two pipelines along with reports of leaks by the Danish energy agency and Swedish maritime authority. Both pipelines have been at the center of geopolitical geopolitical tensions surrounding Russia's war in Ukraine and neither were in operation at the time of the incidents, though they maintained gas under pressure within them. Late last month, Russia state run, Gazprom halted all supply through north stream one, which was completed in 2012, citing technical issues stemming from western wartime sanctions against Moscow, Nord stream two, which was completed last year, never entered into commercial operation as a result of the dispute over the conflicting Ukraine, the Danish defense command said Tuesday that prohibition zones quote unquote have been established around the site of three leagues that have been detected within the two pipelines and European nations have increasingly suspected that they were caused by foul play, Nord stream leaks and Danish military anyway.

Colonel Douglas Macgregor Reacts to Sen. Graham's 2017 Russia Speech
"Colonel, I want to play cut 72. It reinforces something you said where the west was the one that was pushing towards the border of Russia. This is Lindsey Graham and John McCain and Lindsey Graham giving a rather enthusiastic speech saying, we're going to take the fight to Putin. We're going to go straight to the border. We're going to play offense. Play cut 72. Your fight is our fight. 2017 will be the year of offense. All of us will go back to Washington. And we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for them to pay a heavier price. I believe you will win. I am convinced you will win and we will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win. Colonel, your reaction. This was very dangerous, obviously. And they had a receptive audience unfortunately in Ukraine given its tragic history. And I think this actually has its roots in the 1990s in Bosnia Herzegovina and then subsequently in Kosovo and the attacks that we launched against the Serbs, which were aimed ultimately to eject Russia for all intents and purposes from the Balkans and Europe to marginalize Russia. Russia was weak. We were strong and we made no secret of our desire to marginalize them as a power. All of this is connected. And it's unnecessary. I couldn't understand why we even continued to maintain forces in Europe once the wall came down because there was no threat from Russia and frankly today there isn't one when the president of Finland was asked why he wanted to join NATO. He made it very clear that he didn't feel as written by Russia in the least. And I don't think that's the case with anybody right now in Europe to truly understand contemporary Russia.

"It's not for the post and some places there was full only on full house. Ask our own there at. We really appreciate and find them on. And so we have some very good memories. I think that's a good point. I think the outdoor goes on the test and it was our show and we weren't allowed everybody kinda liked it because they you know we got into it okay. Does anybody else. When added to this. Or i think i to be idle at one thing here. Is that if i would. If i would say in the face of the band name he is the most flamboyant and end president. Who does the undress are. Whole thing is the one who is most active and ease running on the stage. And he's he's going into the audience and looking at us for for. I don't know what reason. But he's going there and he's coming back and he's going here and there and he's he's the one sitting on the monitor. Then you know doing things. I cannot even the flamboyant Tundras barb i think it justifies with if you would see name performing on the stage and i think that's that's really going to because the list of your band when you're performing has to be you know active on this day raising the audience so that it doesn't look i'm in the most new. Most of us be focused on. You know better late so we don't do jump around but I think name has a full liberty of doing everything that he wants to do on the stage. I tried to move the yes. I tried to move at to growl. I tried to go to. I tried to go to the gulf of gender. sound like a yes to check on the Like the work sort of sound the audiences getting. I'm like yeah and if and if it needs some like if it needs to make just meant that i was then immediately i can ask the sound. I do like to make some balance. So i So i- auto standard gender sound like how the audience fitting okay. Well it sounds like you're really good man then because You you really put on a show for the audience and you're actually doing some sound check to make sure that they're getting the full sound from you guys which is is also excellent so you doing quality control check is the same time all right. Well i wanted. I wanted to ask you guys you guys have been in finland for awhile. And what kind of challenges have you faced in. Finland as as foreigners both as musicians and just in general of the admissions. I think it would be. I think is the one of the most From and things that i can highlight here as a foreigner. I think we haven't had the opportunity to perform in macy's mayor fence usually would do and i think one of the main reasons is that that the are not very well versed with finnish language. So we don't have a circle of friends were mostly than in music community. So i think that is something that we are. We are lacking. I don't know what you guys have in mind but this is what i feel that if we were noticed enemy would know the language very well. I think we would get a lot more gigs and From places we wouldn't even know so. I think this is something that you're missing from that. I think if you know people are on in the community off the music community you you know you get chances to find for example. Music rooms studios. Dan rooms second equipment. So these are these not a of things that you know. You get chances if you if you are well within the community of artists around but As a foreigner. I think that is maybe one of the challenges. The beer facing that maybe any anyone. Who are you with him. I think it was this lack of information we have received on. These lack of information was useful to the as he said language on the and our lack of degration so is probably our failure as well that we make ourselves available for forsling degration that somehow the kind of our abandoned binding gigs. So i guess that helped us a lot in finding the studio. By the way. We're currently in our own studio and jan rutta Only still making it look much Injury stage and sober way in good the command of the language and not don't know how we wound up being able to manage this leaves and yeah so that's a challenge. Great but i. I would like you at one point like we went for. I'm going to open. Jam session was illegal student organization. Yeah that was very good from like you. it's open. A bad is like in all anyone can go and unlike like romance may be drawing some other band. They're coming for playing guitar with me. Is like a guy open mic say open mic fish so Unfortunately we couldn't add more of this kind of you know we have a plan to go. We have a plan to go to hydro har hard rock cafe in as okay. So i think i think these these kind of platforms again. The and all If you want to introduce yourself. Yeah this thing. I think they did this. This is a stage where we should be aiming at who get a bigger audience and the audience was really interested in that of music. Because as as you might have heard oldest one vision behind being performing in country sort of concerts there you know we are expected to. You know new songs which are more like Really popular but not really the ones that we would like to do at or school rock cyber restaurant music but but if you would get a chance you know going to places where we could do that. Those phones i think it would really dawoud food. And now i think that would be the way for us to explore Bigger firms serve as the some white man. One cent that we you must. I do what people want to let later can do what you want so i think this should start then. I think it'd be under similar away. Humbling like that. Yeah there's there's a there's a long long history of having to do covers of songs that you don't even like but you know the audience likes will sing along with to kind of keep following for yourself and then then once once they start showing up for you then you can say okay now. I'm gonna play my own stuff but by the way i want to really at one thing. I think we'll agree on anything. Other guys who matthew on august. I would have to appreciate.

"Feel like it's not for the post and some places there was full will only on a full house ask our own there at we really appreciate and find them on and so we have some very good memories. I think that's a good point. I think the outdoor goes on the test and it was our show and we weren't allowed everybody kinda liked it because they you know we got into it okay. Does anybody else want to add into this. Or i think i to be idle at one thing here. Is that if i would if i would say in the face of the band name. He is the most flamboyant and end. President who does the undress are thing is the one who is most active and ease running on the stage and he's going into the audience and looking at us at for for. I don't know what reason. But he's going there and he's coming back and he's going here and there and he's he's the one sitting on the monitor. Then you know doing things. I cannot even flamboyant Tundras barb. I think it justifies with if you would see name performing on this agent. I think that's that's really going to because the list of your band when you're performing has to be you know active on this day raising the audience so that it doesn't look i'm in the most new. Most of us be focused on. You know better blade so we don't do jump around but I think name has a full liberty of doing everything that he wants to do. On the stage. I tried to move the yes. I tried to move at the growl i tried to go to. I tried to go to the gulf of gender. sound like a yes to check on the Like the work sort of sound the audiences getting. I'm like yeah and if and if it needs some like if it needs to make just meant that i was then immediately i can ask the sound. I do like to make some balance. So i So i- auto standard gender sound like how the audience fitting okay. Well it sounds like you're really good man then because You you really put on a show for the audience and you're actually doing some sound check to make sure that they're getting the full sound guys. Which is is also excellent so you doing a quality control check is the same time all right. Well i wanted. I wanted to ask you guys you guys have been in finland for awhile. And what kind of challenges have you faced in. Finland as as foreigners both as musicians and just in general of the admissions. I think it would be. I think is the one of the most From and things that i can highlight here as a foreigner. I think we haven't had the opportunity to perform in macy's mayor fence usually would do and i think one of the main reasons is that that the are not very well versed with finnish language. So we don't have a circle of friends were mostly than in music community. So i think that is something that we are. We are lacking. I don't know what you guys have in mind but this is what i feel that if we were noticed enemy would know the language very well. I think we would get a lot more gigs. And from places we wouldn't even know so. I think this is something that you're missing from that. I think if you know people are on in the community off the music community you you know you get chances to find. For example music rooms studios. Dan rooms economic implement. So these are these on a lot of things that you know. You get chances do if you if you are well within the community of artists around but As a foreigner. I think that is maybe one of the challenges. The beer facing that maybe any anyone. Who are you agree with him. I think it was this lack of information we have received on. These lack of information was useful to the as he said language on the and our lack of degration so is probably our failure as well that we make ourselves available for forsling degration so that somehow kind of hindered our abandoned binding gigs. So i guess that helped us a lot in finding the studio. By the way. We're currently in our own studio and jan rutta Only still making it look much Injury stage and sober way in good the command of the language and the north korea. Don't know how we being able to manage this leaves and yeah so that's a challenge. Great but i. I would like you at one point like we went for. I'm going to open. Jam session was illegal student organization. Yeah that was very good from like you. it's open. A bad is like in all anyone can go and and unlike are like romance may be drawing some other band.

"Nobody's going to hear what you have to say. We're not going to judge you and we're all here to support another so exactly exactly wanted to create a safe space is good for putting together these groups and finding group leaders and I mean that's their whole mission statements. Basically help multicultural families. All the whole fam- you know the mom. The dad children Helped them also integrates into to to finish society and and Afl we you know after. Allow these meetings and programs you know. They take on more of an active citizenship. So i'm just very happy that i was able to do that. I'd like to also say that. I was trained to be a Group leader by the finnish refugee council. And i just wanted to say how great that organization is in. They have a training programs for people to go out and volunteer and e competent. about it. so If anyone's listening and you went to volunteer and and what's familia or get trained with a fish refugee council i highly recommended and it's just another way to get out and go in people and see what you have to offer. Finland feeling can offer you as well. How can others get involved with with familia Would i'm trying to remember the. It's familia underscore out for instagram. I don't know if it's the same for like twitter but instagram is probably the best way to follow anyway and they post things and people can go onto. It has a link to their website. And like that so you can always email somebody or reach out directly to the to the account to get questions answered so if anybody's interested in finding out more about any of their programs. You know you can always ask and find out like what is the father stuff going to be more in a. I want to stay in the loop last if your email address. Maybe you'll get get something so you don't have to remember october or anything like that And i think. I'm sure they're gonna post something so that people can start to register for that at some point. I don't know when metal bay but maybe in september. It's going to be in october. So that's probably the best way for for that. I i suppose answering my own question. I guess there is a training for peer group leader. Coming up coming up at finish refugee council. Okay coming up. Maybe it's next month..

"So we we met through. Amelia's duo fathers group Earlier this year. And i think we should talk a little bit about that because i think the the it was three three weeks. I think where we had three weeks of where we basically did like zoom call with whoever was registered in attending it was free and everything and it was you know whatever was set in their stays in their stays between us it. You know you could really talk about whatever was was going on and we had a couple of. I think there was a main idea that we wanted to talk about each week. the first one was like coping with the Presence in overcoming the challenges of daily life than we did something that was What the reflection for future direction are experienced with fatherhood We were talking a lot about our own fathers and father figures and what they kind of taught us to do or not to do and and then. The last one was focused on the role of the multicultural father in finland. And i know that the the the duo groups were kind of only open to non fins right like trying to keep it just the international people and i think that we all kind of like well. I mean if anybody wanted to finish. Father wanted to join him with us. We wouldn't mind. But i guess i was just one of the rules. That familia had. Maybe they'll change that in the future. But i don't i think that they intend to maybe do more in the future and i hope so yes. I will be opening later this year. Another fathers group defensively right now. We're going to start in october. And it's gonna be once or twice a month and it's gonna be live in person at the and also young zoom. Yeah make it so. We're going to get back to in person meetings and okay. Well that'll be. That'll be in the helsinki area for the in person stuff at the familiar office. Okay so i guess we can talk a little bit about what that experience was like those three weeks and everything it was just. It was very good. We had we had people really opening up and being very transparent about the things that are good the things that are bad in their lives. You know you're able to talk about if you had issues with your spouse or you know if you were just finding yourself really in a bad place trying to handle the challenges of parenthood. Some people are having their first kid other people. They had kids for a long time. Have multiple kids. So it's really a variety of guys all all talking and it was really good. We were all very supportive of one. Another and i think we made connections to people and I wanna make sure that people I don't know how many people listening in the audience our fathers themselves. But at the very least you might be married to a father or have you know somebody that you can let know about this and i want to make sure that people are aware that this is available There's all sorts of parenting groups and out. I've been in some of them. Where i was the only guy who who came into the meeting or something and it's nice to have something that's you know specifically for the fathers because i don't know how many are out there that that realize that it's there and if they might feel more comfortable if it is just fathers and especially if it's something that's of the doors are closed..

Who live here. Yeah and i think they should like really appreciate that more. Will they tend to be. Yeah they would some. Some of them will question. Why why would you like it. But they also want you to say that you like it too like i. I noticed when. I first came everybody who asked me. How do you like it. Had a leg it was. It was like if i said. Oh it's terrible or something that would have been like the worst thing. I could possibly send. They would have been horrified. I think that they they are very a lot of finns really. Do love finland and they're very proud of it but they they want other people to appreciate it as well but it is true that sometimes people were just like. I don't understand why anybody would wanna come here. Why why we're considered the happiest country in your the happiest country your social workers state Just gorgeous people. Lovely weather like nature just everywhere. It's very clear clean. Air is like the highest melody in the world. You know any n you can tell this when you go out and experience you know. It's you go out into the into the woods in at nighttime you hear nothing but the nature you don't hear cars you don't hear ambulances you don't you don't hear a whole bunch of city noise and any just kind of you you you actually start to feel something you feel connected to the earth and everything i get. It's it's a. It's almost like a spiritual experience really i guess. Maybe they take you for granted. I don't know maybe they'd probably do. I mean if someone if you go to hawaii. No one's looking at you like why did you move to. Why why did you move here and absolutely no-one asking you they know why. Why didn't you come sooner. So i just i want fans to stand up in have tried in their country which i'm sure they do but yeah yeah and just routine so awesome. It is for especially for a couple americans like ourselves..

We'll go to a second more indepth interview and it also they will go through an assessment. Then there's a logical Bark did them in in in another personal assessment of programmer. We will check the motivation and the ways of working and social needs of each individual and so and so forth. And then when we've found from this shortlist to two four prime candidates these are the ones we will present to the to our client and then they will interview these and big. Maybe one or two to the to the final Job contract negotiations and then on top of that then come still the the exit time for usually. It's or between two months to do one month. In which which they have to just comply with an end in in some cases it might be even longer but total. We're we're looking on on a general time. Timescale would be eight to twelve weeks. Okay so Let's get slowly to their loss question of mine that i have for you any days. Have you noticed any development in hiring internationals in finland over. Let's say depaz three to five years. Have there been any changes nine. Yes i good. Answer that quite bluntly with a yes but this is also industry specific because if you look at the it world id market than than all head on think. Companies nowadays have difficulties finding good good candidates actually on on on many different levels in the in the community and therefore we need to expand our our searches abroad So so if it's a developer. Or or other other types of id idea bursa melvin than That's very very fast and very competitive market than we. Just do. Not have enough enough Candidates here in finland who are are competitive enough in those who are then they are usually already employed by by good companies. We make salaries and they are reluctantly for for for anything which is similar. There has to be a really big carrots for them to to leave and usually. It's not the only money it's it's all it's something else nash makes them. And that's one man. And then then. That's the main main sector and dom and more and more companies are or finnish companies are are hiring abroad. This is not really answering your questions but But we do a number of recruitments which are coordinated here in finland so in other words for finnish companies working abroad saw in that sense. We do look for international people for for finnish companies but then we also have across the border. Recruitments were the location can be another country. It can finland sweden or norway and depending on which is most suitable for the for the For the candidate accent in and It'll be interesting to see. I think that the what this corona pandemic has brought with it than than working from distance has become or is becoming a new norm so so we do see that the country is. The borders are are more or less disappearing. Traveling will diminish quite a lot and it. The even sales sale saw efforts will be done over the network and not to mention. You know all of the meetings and other this type of interactions which usually use to be more face to face and then they're now still face to face but there's still some electric inbetween that is definitely true and i haven't thought about it in this way to be honest but yeah as you said that it makes it easier now to hire across borders it because we got us today said now. It doesn't matter whether the person is in finland or if they work from the other side of the globe maybe there might be difficult Dino time shift both exactly yeah but i'll jobs which are non fine critical then in a that that works very well because we see very often in more and more where where the position can be used for instance one of the nordic or one of the countries and and And that's subject to negotiation. Depending on the situation of of the candidate mike sent. okay. Wow thank you so much. Is there anything else you would like to add to this conversation that we might have missed or you would want to share with the listeners. Know not really i. I'm in a lucky position that most people want to be friends with a head hunter so so people people do tend to to find it quite easy to call us and i do support that very much because i think it's always interesting both ways to hear about new people who are maybe not thinking about changing jobs but but want to you know have a sparring partner to see what their options are and I'm quite bold to say that. None of us in the industry will turn down such a phone call if somebody needs assistance and needs needs to have some pointers in which way and wants to send us or something like that. Everyone wants to be our friends but we want to be. Everyone's friends as well. So you never know a candidate today can be a client tomorrow. So that is true. That is true. Thank you so much carl. It's been such a pleasure to talk to you. Thank you about about this and thank you so much for sharing all about your job and what to do in how you do it and i'm sure many people will find it helpful and very interesting as well.
