Brexit: Government refuses to drop plans to override parts of Brexit deal

"The U. K. left the European Union in January. It was possible to detect a faint sigh of relief even among those British people who thought the endeavor various combinations of reckless vainglorious, foolhardy, petulant, and self destructive at least and at last it was imagined. We now knew what we'd be dealing with a transition period some sort of new deal and a reduction of turbulence. The UK government this. Week announced it had other ideas planning to override sections of the withdrawal agreement. It had itself negotiated signed and won election on the back of joining me to attempt to identify what fresh hell. This is Naomi O'Leary. Your corresponded at the Irish Times and lands price former director of communications at ten Downing Street Naomi with all g recognition that there may be a number of answers to this question of varying degrees of decorum. What is the UK's government doing? Well, my understanding is that it's introducing an internal markets bill that will unpick. A couple of aspects that were agreed with the EU in order to avoid a border join across the arden. So this would include. Customs arrangements on state aid agreements on I mean by the UK's own admission because they rolled agreement was passed in his comments on signed by those sides it's international law. So this would be breaking international by their own admission. Let's. The as ninety points out the UK government has admitted that would be breaching international law. They did specify that it was a very limited and specific way. So that's fine. Apparently It's one of the great questions attending, Boris? Johnson. Administration. Is there a strategy discernible or are they just winging this? Was this always the plan basically? I think has to assume there is some sort of strategy but quite deliberately, it is so opaque that those looking in from the outside, find it very hard to discern what it is. That we may come to the end of this year to the end of December and look back and say, well, actually, there wasn't the strategy and they would just blundering white. You giving a very good impression of simply plunder their way through, but they are not stupid. And we assume that there is method to their madness. Now, about methods may simply to be as disruptive as possible this stage in in. In order to Let's try to secure the deal again today still with the intention of trying to get the deal to give you a new one. That I've spoken to or listen to seems to be able to determine which it is still time. That's it. It's never wanted to deal that looks away play the of European Union. They deliver take disrupted to the prospects of deal because frankly. Happy to go. Without one. But? What has the response to this development being in I mean we'll talk about the rest of the EU shortly but in Ireland in particular because for obvious reasons island republic, there was always going to be more affected by the fact of Brexit than any other EU country. I think initially an many people struggle to believe that this was really what the UK was doing that they were going to go through with this because you know a lot of figures in the civil service in government in Dublin have very long relationships with people in the UK with which have been constructive. kind of goes against the their experience of Britain so far to a large extent up. So I, think there was initially hesitant to overreact to kind of see, but once the bill was made public all. The really have reacted with shock because this this way more than the sort of Saber rattling that everyone expected in terms of talking up no deal on shouting might sovereignty and everything that was kind of priced in this really fundamentally to the heart of the. Western order. People don't. Respect international law. It kind of puts in question a lot of the assumptions that the current global order is based on. I'm just to name a few for example, the fact Gibraltar is still in UK Homs let's based on an international treaty that even though Spain doesn't like it. has accepted. And that's just one small example, the UK itself relies on this concept that. International treaties can't unilaterally changed by one side lawfully, it relies on it all the time. Lunch just to elaborate on that point of Naomi's might even if this is just a slightly devil-may-care negotiating gambling might have effects in the real world. Niamey mentions there the treaty of you tracked onto which spying grudgingly ceded sovereignty of Gibraltar to the United. Kingdom. But also within the last twenty, four hours, one almost admires the bras neck. We've seen the UK's foreign secretary reminding Iran of its international obligations. vis-a-vis, its nuclear treaty might this actually have real world impacts whether it is Gibraltar. Iran Hong Kong. A number of other places. I've been I think it might very well, not necessarily any other states would see this as a green light for them to reach national all all treaties that they have signed with the United Kingdom and other countries but set you going forward when it comes to trying to foam which agreements or whether it's trade agreements or security related agreements or whatever else it might be that the kingdom will be seen as an unreliable untrustworthy partner those. If, we say in terms that we are willing to break traditional goal this time that why should get any time in the future so we will see threats from the United States and. about about this, being a very significant roadblock to a free trade agreement with those countries. Now, we have just signed one with. Japan. He's just been announced that the United States go to preacher is leaving with Japan. It probably doesn't amount to us not which is government with like this. Super believe. But the standings of the United to International. has already been severely damaged, and that's why there's some very very senior figures in the Conservative Party former prime ministers, and little house. but the house tested deposits as well. Who say this is a statue. Niamey talks trade talks ideas due to resume on Monday, but especially bearing in mind. What Lance was just saying about the UK, turning itself into an increasingly on reliable interlocutor, and that's on top of the last few years of just extraordinary nonsense the has had to deal with is there a possibility or indeed? May We already have arrived at that point of the European Union basically losing patients with this entire thing? Obviously, the EU as twenty seven nations is probably more equipped to deal with the chaos of no deal than the UK is one nation. Right now, it's a bit of a game of chicken because I think neither side wants to be the one to call ice because they don't want to take the blame i. But yet they eat. You has given UK basically an ultimatum of the end of the month to reverse this plan. or they say that they will take legal recourses available under the withdrawal agreement I'm which include fines and things like that to try and bring the UK back in line Basically, they've been saying all year the an agreement relies on the past agreements being enacted and that's the fundamental trust is essential for anything being agreed and the reason they've been saying that I think because there was always a bit of a suspicion that something like this could. Happen though nobody wanted to believe it because the likes of ours Johnson on his cabinet ministers would occasionally say things that didn't make sense. The didn't fish with what they had agreed thing that there wouldn't be taxes on when they would be in the Irish Sea So I think the EU is going to wait and the they're they're not pulling out of the the talk. Yes. But the chance of them succeeding I, think in everyone's view with extremely spam at this point.

U.S. Seizes More Than 1 Million Barrels Of Iranian Petroleum From Tankers

U.S. Seizes More Than 1 Million Barrels Of Iranian Petroleum From Tankers

"The U. S. Has seized more than a 1,000,000 barrels of Iranian fuel aboard four tankers that we're heading to Venezuela. The Justice Department called it the largest ever seizure of fuel shipments from Iran and said it was because the tankers were in violation of sanctions. The move is part of the Trump administration's campaign of maximum pressure on Iran. NPR's Jackie Northam has been following the story and joins us now. Hi, Jackie. Hi, Sarah. So what can you tell us about what happened with these ships? Right where the seizure of these for Greek own ships happened earlier this week, and the Justice Department says the order to seize and confiscate the cargo was issued by a U. S District court and that the US along with the assistance of foreign Partners confiscated the cargo on board and this was done by a ship to ship transfer of the fuel. You know, it's a little uncertain what type of fuel there talking about. It could be bunker fuel, which is used for heavy machinery, and I like Or just plain old gasoline. Either way, it was bound for Venezuela, and now it's believed to be bound for the U. S. And the Justice Department says the proceeds from its sale will go toward the fund for victims of state sponsored terrorism. And where those four tankers now are. They also on their way to the U. S. Well, it's unclear right now. The four tankers turned off their location. Transponder is more than three months ago, so we don't know where they are. At the moment. If the U. S has the ships they could be brought back here to the U. S and sold at auction. They could have been handed back to the Greek shipowner. We don't know. I talked to a couple of analyst today, including shipping analysts, and this action is really just seen as part of a broader effort by the Trump administration to put pressure on Iran by going after shipping companies. That are carrying Iranian fuel or oil, or even the insurance companies that they use and threatening to sanction them. If they deal with the Iranians, you know. For the past few years, the administration has been heavily sanctioning Iranian in Venezuelan, for that matter, companies and individuals and this is just a different route to apply pressure on the regime. And what is Iran's saying about this? Well. Iran's ambassador to Venezuela rejected the US justification for this seizure and confiscation as fake news, and he called it another lie and psychological warfare by US propaganda machine and said that the tanker's have nothing to do with Iran. The fact is, Iran really needs the money from its oil sales. They've been hit very hard by the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign, which will sanction any country dealing with Iran. So any sales that it makes have to be kept quiet. And you know, even though this is a seizure of just over a 1,000,000 barrels, it's a shot by the US directly towards Tehran. And we're hearing about the seizure. Just today. After the U. S. Announced it had brokered an agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. They're going to establish full diplomatic relations. That new friendship is seen as being driven by their mutual dislike for Iran. So Iran maybe feeling more isolated. Now, Jackie is Iran expected to retaliate for the seizure of its ships. Battleground, has vowed to resist US attempts to isolated and could certainly see these events as a really challenge and feel it may need to stand up for itself using whatever is available for them to respond. You know it might try to seize vessels of its own if you be called just over a year ago, Iran seized a British oil tanker and it's 23 crew members in the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for British forces detaining on Iranian tanker in Gibraltar also last year, is believed Iran was using Mine's to attack ships in the Persian Gulf and you know, the U. S says already In the last few days, Iranian forces boarded a ship trying to take the petroleum on board but wasn't successful.

A thrilling naval rescue off the coast of Nova Scotia

"When things start to go wrong on the open ocean sometimes they go really wrong really quickly. We make really good boats. We have state of the art navigation systems and we have all the emergency measures in the world to prevent disaster still. We don't belong there. The Sea is not our turf. And if you've ever seen a movie about a nautical disaster it's not that far off from reality about a year ago off the eastern coast of Canada. Things went really wrong really quickly. And all that state of the art technology wasn't working when that happens the boat and its crew can't do much outs but put out an emergency distress call and pray that somebody answers it and that those people are close enough to help and if they're really lucky at the ships that answer. The call are part of the Royal Canadian Navy and are prepared to undertake one of the most dramatic. Rescues that you'll hear about outside of a Hollywood pitch meeting. This is the story of that rescue. I'm Jordan he throwing. This is the big stars. Nick Taylor busy of Maclean's chronicled the whole dramatic tale. An hello first of all what is the McKenna McKenna is a forty nine foot yacht. It's called the Hanse four ninety five. It was on the inside of beautiful boat. I don't know a whole lot of boats but I saw some photos Of the cabin and it was decked out you could wash dishes on that thing you could sleep very comfortably and you could sail the high seas. It's a fairly rich person vessel. Yeah I mean it's the kind of you buy when you have some money to buy a boat. So what happened to her well The owner of the boat was named John Hagen. He's a surgeon who lives here Toronto. And he asked a broker who is in the area where he should by boat so John and the broker whose name was pat sturgeon Had A few conversations and they found the McKenna in Greece. In this Mediterranean port called left us their mission was to buy the boat and then find a way to get her to Canada. How do you get a boat to Canada when you buy it overseas? I mean I guess. There's an obvious answer to that question. Well Yeah I mean you you usually on the water but there are a few options you can. You can bring a boat over in a container ship shipped almost package kind of thing or if you want to maybe save a little money depending or have a little more flexibility you can hire skipper to get on that boat. Hire a small crew and take it where you want. And this is what he did. And that's what he did. So tell me. But the the captain and the crew and and I guess what Rupert Mondro does because this is a job that I didn't know existed. It's an unbelievable story. How he started doing what he's doing he was born in South Western. England in Devon Place called barnstable. He was a trained actor at one point. He had his own company. He went bankrupt. He told me at the age of Twenty Eight. He was Drifting around I think thinking what do I do next at that point and so he got on a boat and loved. It started sailing and eventually he started delivering goods because he was very good. Skipper and so twenty five years. He did that until the he was he was hired to bring the McKenna across the Atlantic But he he's just a natural born c fair when you talk to him about it You know it's it's like he was born on the water and the way people talk about him is a remarkable. They say it's almost as if he doesn't need instruments he he can sail the seas just by sort of you know putting his finger in the wind and saying little now the waves are gonna come this way so we better go this way and You know he has autopilot. And all the fancy instruments but He's he's been spent the latter half of his life Just having fun sailing boats around the world and he's gone almost everywhere so he captained the McKenna taking it. I guess from Greece to Canada. Yeah he he brought crew And a cook And in October of two thousand eighteen they they met in in Greece and they spent a few days. They're getting ready Inspecting the boat making sure everything was in working order. It was by all accounts. A beautiful boat the McKenna was in very good condition and And ready for the voyage. He said By text to John. The surgeon Looking wonderful we're GONNA get going and so. They sailed through the Mediterranean. They had to stop in Italy everywhere. They talked with scenic about away but they stopped in Italy to fix a a steering problem fixed. It kept going. Stop at Gibraltar for a little while whether stopped them from going much. Further few days finally got onto the Azores which was the final stop before the Atlantic crossing Weather stop them again. There's a lot of weather in the late fall in the North Atlantic relatively treacherous waters so They were waylaid for for a while and It it took them quite a bit of time to get from Greece to the stores But then in November they set sail for Halifax what happened well. A lot of bad things happened relatively quickly The the treacherous weather caught up with them again. Rupert had this satellite phone that he borrowed from another sailor and he was able to get weather reports on sort of four or five hour delays. So he would check the forecast and based on what it said he would. He would steer the boat in a different direction. There was a big weather system coming in a big low pressure system from the South who was moving north and he and his crew. We're GONNA try to beat it to the north and they almost got there when you when you look at some of the screengrabs. They have of the of the weather patterns but they didn't quite make it and we're caught in this little arm of what they all refer to everyone involved in this as a hurricane. It was not a named hurricane but it was hurricane-force winds and it had this little arm whipping around and got caught in it and It for twenty four hours totally ravaged the boat crew was hunkered down The waves were were roaring. The wind was ripping through the rigging of the masks on On the on the boat and they were I mean they were they were rolling safely but quite violently through huge waves the kind of waves that you would see in big bad blockbuster movies you know. Not Maybe not the biggest of the big but huge so The weather data and they and they survived that The boats survived intact. They didn't capsize anything. Like that. But When it was safe to emerge in sort of inspect the damage rupert who Never saw probably couldn't fix came out and saw problem he almost couldn't fix because Man It was. Just it was torn. The steering was broken. The rudder was at a place it took some real Seafaring ingenuity to even get the boat. Operable again he and they kept going well. The steering quadrant was broken. The the the sort of mechanism that connects the rudder to the autopilot into the anything you need to actually change direction in the boat. He had to flip it around and turn it one hundred and eighty degrees the steering quadrant and then welded into place. Not Welding really. He had a cables and whatever it was at its disposal that would keep things together and worked. And so he I think the cruise airing macgyver. I got yeah he really was a seafaring macgyver and I think the crew was stunned They they were texting as well back to John. The surgeon who was a little helpless at this point in probably starting to feel a little guilty by boat is in the middle of the North Atlantic Middle North Atlantic. And his crew. That I sent. There's with it in. Oh my God we can even do and so. He was getting texts. They're saying we're pretty sure Rupert Scott under control because he's a pretty you know stoic. Man and And he did and they kept going and then well and then I hit more weather goodness. It never really stopped. They were chugging at this point as fast as they could to Halifax where the boat was gonNA spend the winter before coming to Toronto in the spring but more weatherhead This time the forecast racist dead wrong it. It misled Rupert and And his crew and they found themselves overtaken by a storm that I don't think was hurricane force but was nevertheless the kind of thing that would damage a boat. That's already been that's already damaged it just. His ingenuity was Was unfortunately Somewhat beaten down two to nothing by the storm so they found themselves once it had calmed a little bit and they were able to assess the situation adrift at Sea. What do you do in a situation like that? Well in this case what you do. Is You look for boats in the vicinity of your of your boat? Anybody who can help. You is a savior and fortunately for the McKenna. There were two Canadian navy ships. Who happened to be coming home from a mission a training mission in And War Games in Europe and they were only about eight nautical miles away from the McKenna. When everything went Super Ri- so rupert the captain got on the radio with Peter McNeil the captain of HMCS glaze Bay talked a little bit and Ships turned towards the McKenna it was glaze. Bay and HMCS summerside two coastal defence vessels. Which are two of the smaller ships in the fleet? But by comparison to the McKenna they were quite large and probably looked a you. Know a welcome sight to about adrift without any ability to really go anywhere on. Its own power and then they rescued them and it was no problem. In the story is over everything's Peachy The ship came and they just pluck them out. No it was really difficult. The story of this rescue is the stuff of a movie. This podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? You need a plan

Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker

"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing.

I believe you really can be a super cycle for for apple that's what I used to use this is a stock I think it's gonna have a three in front of it going into next year did you walk through that a little bit more how five G. will sort of super charge apple shares yeah a lot of it is really the applications in the infrastructure in the five he really and for the average consumer especially within the installed base to get access to that five G. you're gonna need to get a five G. or we think next year based on our shacks throughout China and Taiwan is gonna be four five he thought referred a consumer they're gonna upgrade on five G. to apple and that would that's really feeling even in a renaissance of grown yeah that's the highway the highway to five G. is a smartphone I'm struggling to understand five G. applications is being so incredibly different I mean basically is a robot gonna get beamed into my home and and and make me breakfast I mean how how different is this going to be from foreign three G. it yeah I think it's a paradigm change in terms of five G. I think the best thing about is more smart cities autonomous capabilities I'm talking about a lot of technology that today are more on the white board over the next five ten years it's really me five G. enabled and that's why when you look at the leader in that it dapple OB the Sam some can be used to be there as well as the Chinese consumers but that's why I thought you still important in terms were apple sit in the stock okay in one part of the services story for apple that's less clear to me is there video strategy their TV strategy another yeah apple TV plus centers of some shows there but to me that's not it I mean that that's not gonna cause me to switch her to add to my Netflix and to my Disney plus what do you really think is the play for apple in the video business yeah I think the first part of the play is distribution they want to give the distribution platform for screen that's the first step and then I think if you look at it right now that's why the bundling so important terms of the new iPhone in terms on the video side right now they lack content but I do not we do that we'll do you like that in a year from now I think they're going to dedicate six billion per year and I still think they acquire more but content play in MGM Missoni aligned gate over the next year who's the big loser from five G. who's not gonna keep up well what I think in terms of the big loser right now in terms of five G. this is really going to be an apple Sam song I think if you look so far I think Sam song bumble did a bit in terms of where the war versus apple and I think it's not going to be a winner take all but I think right now stands has been a bit disappointing on that side decide and when you look at five G. I think right now it's going to be a lot of winners the question is rise in eighteen T. which benefits from five G. more and I think that's why the next six to twelve months you're really gonna determine from strategically who's best position but right now I can can you think apple was one of the reasons terms when it comes to five P.

R. convoy and that they were guarding our ship civilian ships that were going through the street to make sure they weren't picked up or attacked cell this is nothing new but here is what's going on the Brits and the Europeans say they were perfectly justified in picking up that tanker on the way to Syria and that therefore all the release of holy sanctions one is that when you talk about what you think we're part of the agreement we have sanctions so here's the bottom deal or the bottom line you take one of ours we'll take one of yours and there's actually a recording of what was happening when the Ronnie still talking to each other the Brits in the audience we're talking so this is a recording of what was happening all.

I had been complaining to my squad about like, man. I've never gotten any kills with his all I've only hurt myself kind of sucks, and we got to a circumstance where it was the final circle. And there was one other squad, and it was in water treatment where they have the kind of shallow ponds. Yeah. You know, and we were hiding in one and they were in another. And we didn't nobody wanted to. It was just like a true Mexican stand-off kind of sort of smaller and smaller and eventually I was just like fuck it through my shield through down the airstrike. The airstrikes started coming down. I could see it started hitting enemies. I could see the numbers pop off of them all where they were ping. And we all got out and win. It was great. It was like I was just like, okay. Totally does have a us like it's not they actually tested this. I had a match finish in the bunker. There's a tunnel that goes under the kind of wines, and there's a couple of rooms off of the hallway. This actually got stream because my friend was streaming, but the three squads left and bunker was right in little of tiny circle. So we ran in there and hit in the rooms knowing that squads were on either side of watching the circle, and like it just happened that it started closing. All right. That's going to force one of them through this tunnel because they have to and sure enough here they down the hall, and we just waste them as soon as they appear and then the circle stops like just on the edge of the room. You're hiding. So then it was the other squad on the other side of that tunnel with all the room in the world and move and us stuck in those rooms knowing we had that tiny hallway like we basically had to post up in there. And wait for them to come to us, and it turned into this crazy grenade. Fight like bouncing grenades around. Cool. So that caused that match with had that caustic. We like had a squad trapped in bunker, and he was like setting stuff down. And so it was like trapping in the moving forward pushing them back a little bit until we started fucking them up. And it was it was. Yeah. It was it had a different feel than most the other matches kind of a cool. That's when the these really start mattering when you're in those tight. I gotta say man, like, you know, from the time when you came back to us recording that video and all our stuff like I I am a little surprised by how much this game has taken off. Like, it's. Yeah.
