Small Greenhouses: The How, What, and Why
"Wanna pick up an idea that somebody sent us in an e mail. Few months ago where they asked us to comment about some small ikya greenhouses now for people who don't know key is a big furniture store right. Coup doesn't kia. Well some people may not know but evelyn e. you know about these greenhouses. What what exactly are people asking about. What are they talking about here. It especially if you live in a small home or a small apartment and you don't have a lot of window space or your apartment very dry. These miniature greenhouses can be very appealing because it gives you some dedicated growing space. And it's a way to increase the humidity. Which for some house. Plants is really important. It cracks me up when i see these on pinterest planted with charming little succulents. Because that's the last plant that really needs the increased humidity of greenhouses fact. You're you're probably going to be doing them a disservice unless you leave that. Many greenhouse open all the time. But but i can't actually makes one called soccer and i'm sure that if i spoke swedish would pronounce that better which is very cute and actually functions and the reason that it functions is because the roof is hinged so you can open it up and have full complete to the inside of the little greenhouse and it's small it's like about eighteen inches wide and fourteen inches tall but you could still fit some really pretty smaller plants that need high humidity in a little greenhouse like that. But there it's a maiden hair furner erects or an apiece or something that needs increased shop but don't waste it on a bunch of succulents. That's not really what you need to do for them. And it's probably not large enough to grow any amount of food in either right now. It really isn't. And i get so frustrated when i see these things. Online that are not realistic. That set people up to fail. Because you have a bad experience with something like that and it's gonna turn you off from growing plants completely. If you wanted to start a few seeds in one of these little greenhouses you could certainly do that. But it's not enough. You're not going to be able to grow more than maybe like a basil plant or a rosemary. Plant something in there. It's just they're just not big enough on but the thing to watch out for especially is read the descriptions if you're looking online a lot of these things that are just charming are not functional. There are some beautiful like brass and glass greenhouses up there little mini ones. That would fit on a tabletop and they sit on a tray and the trae is a half an inch deep and to access the planting. You have to lift off the whole glass top. So you've only got a half an inch of soil in there to plant with. That's not gonna work for you the ikya one. Actually you can plant in. And even though it's made out of you know glass it's plastic. It does function. so you could. You could use this. For for instance a almost a terrarium. You could create a little jungle environment in there. Yeah you could and if you if in the ones that let let you actually plant directly in them if you are going to buy one of those beautiful ones that doesn't actually have a solid bottom to it. That's the kind of thing that you're going to have to use like a close. You might just put a couple of pots in there and then put the glass top down on top of the whole thing. But you can't actually plant in soil in that kind of a little mini greenhouse. It's it's almost a display item rather than a functional growing strider. And you need to. It will increase the humidity for those plants. But they need to be individually potted. And i think it's important for people to manage their expectations now I was looking around when when we decided to talk about this. I was looking around. Because i noticed that some people mentioned that you can use these inside or outside and and i'm sure you can put it outside. But why would you want to limit yourself to such tiny thing. If you're doing it outside you know if you want some outside protection so that you can grow more plants on the shoulder seasons early in the spring and and even into the winter there are larger structures. That are much better for this. And i was looking at the gardner supply company which is a company that i'm very fond of up in vermont. An employee owned company. They're wonderful and they have a several structures that fit over standard size raised beds that create this kind of greenhouse effect over a raised bed. The sides come up so that you can get in there and tend your plants you know. And you've got that protection that carries you into the winter or early in the spring and very reasonably priced. Yes and those are a much better. Bet if you're talking about outdoor growing for many reasons because they're they're lightweight they're plastic. You can fold them up in store them easily when the growing season is completely over and they give you much more space than a tiny little kia. Terrarium is going to give you. But if you are interested in doing this indoors and you want a little more space than the ikea soccer will give you my swedish accent soccer so you could just take and this is what i used to do. I would just. I would buy big old aquariums flea markets and garage sales and this was something it may not be quite as cute and charming as something that was intended to be greenhouses concerned. But it solid. It's all glass. So you've got a really strong thing there that you can plant directly in and it's going to give you more growing space so if you're somebody who's just been dying to grow a maiden hair fern or something that requires higher humidity than you can give it in your apartment. Start looking for those old fish tanks because those will really serve your purpose probably better than anything you can buy new

"That rest. I'm creating a fire hazard for myself. So i think that's one thing that i keep on telling people like if you're going to put that sort of equipment sight of green house it would be good to know whether it can withstand that type of environment so you don't. You're not creating a situation where you can. You can set your house on fire. Fortunately hon what other pieces of kit might you need for your cabinet over takami for a bit of a shopping list. I recommend like us a small humidifier you might have to fail it more but it gives you more space inside the greenhouse to put more plants and also i recommend at usb fan to keep the air moving a lot of people use the Replace the glass shelves for Wire but i keep. I have one that has a wire shelf but all the rest half glass in a recent. Why choose this is because i built a rare eum so the idea of keeping the like environments in between shelves as separate. That doesn't sound so bad to me like it. It's okay if the humidity varies by a few percentage a but But yeah both both things are good. So wire shelving humidifier and you're the fans if you want to make your cabinet extra cozy and stop that precious moisture from leaking out. You can also employ some with strips to keep the air contained. I have been doing test actually in my melt spo cabinets in where i whether strep one fully. Also all around the doors. And all the crevices. I haven't silicone the glass yet. But the recent why did this is just to see how much to humidity varies between the one. That is all enclosed in the one that is not and i say is about ten percent higher humidity at all times and so it fluctuates a lot. Less as well. so yes. the weather's tripping. I just used the like you know. Window weather stripping is like a little foam strep with one side has a guided in amazon. But i'm sure any lake any store lows or anything like that will have it as well and a yeah is not very expensive. And he's a great way to make your cabinet be a little bit more sealed. So you don't need to put the humidifier on all the time so you've got you cabinet all set up. But what should you fill it with. It is partly questioned experimentation according to cami and vinnie but vinnie does points out. There are some plants that just all that keen on the altar humid closed environment of the cabinet. My rule is if the if the point is not a velvety plant. If it's not you know like the melania crisis him you know that in theory regarding in it's more of like a most era or affiliates rem bureau no that is there are a bit of hardier planes. They might surviving there but it's not necessary for you to have them. There might tie consideration from what i've heard from other collectors in growers. That plan is very prone for root rot. So for me for me. I think the most critical planet had because it was my very first so-called rare playing tight brisbane like the term. But just for the sake of it was i. Put it in there in in three weeks later. It just started to fall apart and winning spyro where it took me about a year to see another leaf-growing In the plant. So it's like ear full of of recovery in that plant outside of the house so it's important for you to know your planes in understand their requirements as far as humidity goes Because it's like. I believe those those. Those cabinets are or more so designed for primarily the points not so much harder plans like everything in life. The cabinet isn't perfect. It can exacerbate the problem of root rot as comey explains the general consensus. Is that peak your plants that prefer midi are also just more difficult in general just because they rod really easily as well so once we start bumping up the humidity to keep them happy from the least from turning brown and or getting crispy and all that they the ruth they just get too much humidity the soil does never dry out so then you get the rot. So there's a few ways to combat that you know put a layer of pebbles underneath your soil have seen that going around and seems to be really a working really well But the fan is the easiest thing you know just put the fan and and just make. The air circulates as i've already pointed out these key. Cabinet have not been designed for plants so the other major enemy of success is rust which is not surprising. Given how much of a moist environment you're creating but there are some ways around it as vinnie points out. My first cabinet had a little bit of a rust. Going on mostly because of the mistakes that i've made might less cabinet is. I'm looking at it right now. In seat minimum amounts of rust. But there's definitely some russ going on. It's absolutely critical that you clean your cabinets in in you're looking over but the best way for you to avoid it it's by ensuring that there's no water around the cabinet. So let's say might not is high water mcleans the weekends in an shower hose autumn. And then i put them in the in the cabinets. As soon as i do that my cabinet gets humidity. Humidity gets really high end. Sometimes you would see a little bit of water dripping side of the cabinet in the glasses that koon station going on generally what i do i just bump it up the The fan and the famous start to kind of like move. That are fester or aiken up the door slightly. But it's important that you consistently looking at it so that you don't see water in the cabinet generally with him at the bottom shelves. If you have the wirehouse so you just just wipe it off otherwise.

Now some of them makes sense the cleaning supplies products that had Factory closures during the early part of covid-19 is a new shortage another shortage that I'll be honest with you makes a ton of sense to me and it's relatively new because the kids are going back to school and people are finding out that they're going to be working from home possibly permanently. And that's a shortage of affordable desks desks for school kids and he for people who work from home now, they're a lot of expensive desk fill out there. But who wants to spend six seven eight hundred dollars during a pandemic for a desk, especially for a child, especially if you're not sure if you're going to be working from home forever or not. A lot of kids are having the same problems and they don't necessarily have a lot of space. So people are getting creative because you can't find an inexpensive or even cheap desk online right now. Ikea doesn't have them Walmart doesn't have them. They're just hard to find and getting harder by the day somehow sadly. This doesn't surprise.
Blinds Controlled by Alexa?
"Comes from Willie a from the Facebook page the group if you'd like to join that group, by the way, go to a l e x a in Canada Community now Willie asks, you've always got two questions one is he's looking for a really good strong and secure home security system that works with Lexie and part two is he's looking for a blinds automation system that can be activated via Lexi. So I've got two products. These aren't the only ones for sure, but I got a recommendation for you Willy and for anybody else that's looking for similar products. As far as the home security goes the system that is going to be most integrated with life is going to be something that comes from Amazon. And as you may know Amazon purchased ring a little while back and they actually have a ring alarm system and you can choose different systems so you can get it off. As a 14 piece kit. So it comes with lots of sensors all the way down to a five-piece kit. You can get a doorbell kit. So it includes the ring doorbell lots of different kits. So, that would be one recommendation. As I said, there are some other ones as well, but not something that you can look at you can also choose it's optional to have 24/7 professional monitoring and then they charge you $15 a month for that if that's something that you want to look at. So there's that and then as far as the blinds go one of the less-expensive options that seems to be getting recently good news is the system from Ikea and so if you're going to be looking at the Ikea blinds, then you're going to need two things. You're going to need the The Hub basically what they call the boss. Here we go is my pronunciation of these Ikea pieces of Hardware The Dread free. It's about tradfri Gateway and that's on sale for twenty years. Dollars and that's basically the Hub of that allows you to then control the smart products that Ikea makes and you're going to control them through an app or through Lexi and then the actual blinds are in the office don't know how you pronounce s furter line f y r t u r and they come in different sizes, of
Character of God: God's Hot Nose
"Are two verses in Exodus Thirty, four verses six and seven were God proclaims about himself. Five attributes five characteristics that are fundamental to who got Bible is I two we discussed in the last two episodes. That God is compassionate. That is he cares for us like a mother cares for a child and secondly that God is gracious. That is that he sees in us in humanity something that's valuable and worth showing favour to even though we often prove the opposite. These first two characteristics kind of Nice and they give me warm fuzzies. Many people in our culture have a default belief that if they believe in God either want to believe or just do believe that he's charitable and generous and good that he has pathos in that way many people with there's a being Burnett Energy Permeating Compassionate and gracious and what they, what describing is a being with pathos who's moved the third attribute the one right at the center of the five. Is a bit different. God proclaimed about himself that he is slow to anger and actually. That isn't really inaccurate. Thank you tend to center because it's the only one that isn't positive as such or you could say it's a stating a secondary. It's addressing something about God about how God response the anger is not a basic attribute of God it's. Responsive pattern of God's behavior. In response the evil but actually it's thirty six can bring it around and say, but slow to anger. That's what's Court. Character slow? Tang. Which means that when he gets angry, it's measured strategic. It's for a certain reason. But why an angry God. At all I mean angry people. Are Scary. Angry people are fun to be around. Angry people cause problems right What anger means to us is different. What anger meant to ancient Israelites the associations with anger way that we even talk about anger now is different than our grandparents would have talked about anger a person who is truly good. We'll get angry sometimes. If you're familiar with the Bible, you'll know there are. Loads of stories and poems about God being angry. And not just you know a little frustrated we're talking lightsout hit the mat you're done cutting. And today we're GONNA look. At many of those passages. I'm just called this the problem of God's wrath for modern readers Bible. There are some narratives where God gets angry and then he acts in some way that's terrifying and with you start to stack up these stories and take them out of context, you can end up with a pretty distorted portrait of God. Because? What the God of the Bible wants us to see about him is that yes, he gets angry at evil and violence and human suffering. But what's core about his character is how he responds and that is with patients in with four sites that God is slow to anger joining us. Here we go. We'll hello today I have the pleasure once again to talk with to Bible scholars like usual Tim McKee, how you doing today today? Yeah Good Sunny Day, and also Chris Ikea. Hey. We've been together talking through five attributes of God that God describes himself with, and they come from a narrative in exodus chapter thirty, four God is talking with. Moses. On top of Mount Sinai, we talked in depth about the context of these verses and and we jumped into two of the five attributes today. The third attributes Tim, which is yes in Hebrew it's pronounced etiquette I am and it's translated in English traditionally as slow to anger those, we're going to see the actual Hebrew figure of speech used really fascinating. What means slow to anger, but it doesn't say slip anchor in Hebrew. You know these five character traits of God and exit thirty four six are arranged a little symmetrical mirror design. So the first two are pair we've talked about those Compassionate and Gracious. and. Then the last two are full of loyal love and faithfulness, and so those two pairs surround one character trait in the center that consists of two two words and slow to anger How important is that? This is a Cayenne and that sort of angers in the middle O- Well, it's cool. Because it just means. It reflects intentional design of the communication. It is interesting that the first two compassionate gracious our conceptual pair as well addressing in emotional response being deeply moved and then graciously being generous loyal love is important pair with faithfulness because they have to do with loyalty and reliability, and then this center one here think it's in the center because it's the only one that isn't positive as such. or you could say it stating secondary. It's addressing something about God about how God response say it this way? Yeah. In the four character traits godless is compassionate. Gracious, loyal, and faithful. But he does sometimes get angry and that is a reaction of God, it's not a part of his nature. It's something he reacts to and so fact that he has to be slow to anger marks. It s kind of than the others that's I don't know the. So I've thought about in the past I. Know You guys have any thoughts about that that make sense to me that anger is an attribute of God. It's a reaction. A reaction has a negative connotation to, but it's a response at times but Compassionate Gracious. Full of low eleven faithfulness. Those are maybe more how we think of attributes of a person or of God although in the Hebrew. And I know you'll talk about this. It's not stated as a negative necessarily. So at least there's something unique about this one that is a bit different than the others I wonder too. If it's at the center because of the surrounding narrative, maybe it's a main point in what's happening with Moses and the people more than the other words are really significant to in the narrative but maybe slow to anger really defines that God is deciding to hold back his response of anger in this moment, because the context of this narrative is that while God is working with Moses to secure this covenant what would you call it assist the Covenant Partnership Covenant Argument Yeah that the remainder of Israelites are abandoning it breaking the first of the ten commandments creating an idol. Yeah and if anything's GonNa make God a bit angry that would that would be one thing. and. So that's what you're saying Chris says that the context here is God is justified to be angry but right in the center of all these attributes, he points out the actually slow to anger.
Xbox Series & PS5 Pricing
"So it's pricing that dropped for both the xbox series x the xbox series S, and the both playstation five consoles the digital, only one and the one with the disk drive. So all of the pricing has now dropped for next Gen consoles and and so this article was from N. Gadget they say xbox series is incredible value for next Gen gaming This one from the verge ps five will launch on November twelfth for four ninety nine. We have a few articles here all talking about William Can Let me just let me give our listeners a quick rundown. The to xbox consoles. The series S is going to sell for two ninety nine and they're higher end more powerful series x is going to sell for four nine. Okay. On the playstation side, their high end, which is going toe to toe with the series x but has a disk drive and everything is also four, ninety nine and they're discus version is three, ninety nine. So they don't have anything competitive at the to ninety nine level, but arguably I think it's the same hardware as the four, ninety nine minus the described.
How to regain calm when anxiety hijacks your brain
"Today, we're speaking about how you can regain calm when anxiety hijacks your brain something that were both very much aware of. High Anger. I Hsien. Good. Thank you. It's good to be back with you after taking some time off this summer that we both needed and I'm grateful for the time and also very grateful to be back together with you talking about something. That could there be anything more important than learning how to regain. Calm. When anxiety hijacks your brain this is excellent subject. So thank you for putting our notes together today I really appreciate it. So glad we're talking about this. I think it's really An important topic something that's been on my mind of the last couple of weeks as I've been listening to and responding. To Client Sund, noting some conversations and concerns and our group and just in from around me at this really unusual time. So many challenges many the same and many different depending on individual circumstances them. I'm hearing and seeing a lot of elevated anxiety and. A lot of cases of anxiety really just barging in and taking over the mind and saw would be helpful to have this conversation today. Let's start with how anxiety flares up and then take it through what happens and how our body responds. How it starts is that anxiety frequently hijacks are thinking with a fearful narrative. So, for example, there might be some what if thoughts for worst case scenarios? Ashrafi. Thinking that happens in a heartbeat really flares up in our mind and causes acute distress. and. The body then responses if those fearful thoughts true because it doesn't know the difference between a real th Brat a real thing that's happening all what's running through your mind with thinking. What. If this is true what if that's GonNa happen the body response as if it's true Ziff, it's real. and. Then when the body reacts in that way, it froze up sensations that go back to the mind. The mind notices thumb on becomes modest up and so we get caught in this fierce ikbal but feels so frightening and completely. Takes over our body and mind. So that's why we're calling him. I- jacking it really is an intrusion something that burst into the line imposes. Right, fair right anxiety quite suddenly. An off. Feels like it came out of nowhere. Yeah. That's been my experience. I'll be hopping along just fine having A. Perfectly lovely day and then and then a symptom or sensation will come up and and occasionally like grabbing a tiger by the tail boom there it is when we don't. Have these conversations and we don't Explore how it worked and really break it down in the hookah about what you can do about it. It's that thing where it feels like I was having a completely happy day and this am of the blow that's what really causes major disturbance. When we can look at the recipe for it and make changes to that and pick it apart of it gives us more. Of the situation because anxiety seldom comes out, the blue is seldom comes from nowhere. What normally happens is it begins with a trigger, a symptom or sensation. It might be a message, a news item to something that that sets our mind off something that strikes a vulnerable place or a concern or a memory in us, and the mind zooms in on it instantly, and then it would create an anxious narrative which really comes from Ikea vigilance that's running in the background already, and the mind will make a story around that rigor that makes it instantly more solid, believable or potential threat, and then as soon as the mind creates the story. which can happen instant the body reacts. Our heartbeats faster are breathing become shallow. We might feel lightheaded or shaky. And these sensations in the body fee back into her mind and further disturbed the mind. An increasing society and this repeats and builds into a fear cycle a fear loop that feels so incredibly real and is often very hard to bear until we know how to stop it and gratefully, we can stop it. Yeah that time it goes I think many people listening will be familiar with that. Experience. So what we really wanted to do, today's bring some hope and some strategy to the situation, a mind and balanced respond calmly to incoming information. But a mind that's already challenged by anxiety will react rather than respond site just fires off and you don't have that boost. Assault or that goes. Bo-. Thinking about things making choices, challenging it challenging what's come up an anxious mind would just though with A. and. It lacks resilience to process the incoming information and to respond in a self-supporting way. The good news is you can change this. We can all change this. We can learn the break the fair cycle and have a completely different experience to something body or on the news or somewhere, and then we just off. is almost like you're tumbling downhill like your woman it. You're on top of the mounting and the next you've lost your Fulton and you're in freefall as bills but. We work with we can change it.
Drinking is Expensive
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to recovery happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stopped drinking I'm your host Tricia and in almost four years of not drinking I've saved over twenty grand. That's enough money to buy either a used Honda civic or two, thousand, two, hundred and twenty four packages a frozen meatballs from Ikea. Thank you for joining me. Guys drinking is expensive and that's the topic of today's introduction. Drinking is expensive. I, have a tracker APP on my phone that tells me how much money I've saved by not spending money on alcohol and today it says twenty, thousand, three, hundred and seventy dollars. But I think that number is actually a estimate and that it could be closer to about twenty six thousand dollars, which is just nuts. So a little back story when I quit drinking also owned business that I had just put a bunch of money into to expand our kitchen space that we were in. That's actually one of the reasons why I got sober because I was about to take on this huge project and I knew that I wouldn't survive if I kept drinking the way that I was drinking. So I started getting into recovery and spent my first full year learning how to not drink. I ignored a lot of the rest of my life. You know I, let my debt continue to build without. Really thinking that much about it. I kept working on business and I learned how to be sober. That was my number one priority in after your one when not drinking was my new normal I poked my head out of the sand and I realized that even as someone who considered myself as a highly functioning alcoholic and fairly responsible I had neglected some major areas of my life, my finances being number one. This is also a reason why I think that year two of sobriety is sometimes harder than the first year because usually have to do a lot of cleanup. The new shiny feeling of early sobriety wears off and you got to learn how to just live your life now. So I continued to work my ass off on a business try to be financially responsible but by year three of sobriety I realized I was on the way to needing to close my business. There are a lot of reasons behind that. That aren't super important to get into. But what is important is that closing a business especially one that you can't sell it takes a lot of difficult decisions to do. It is responsibly as possible when it comes to finances. So in between consumer debt and business debt, I have been plugging away at this giant number for close to four years now. I've had a second job for almost two years I changed careers late twenty nineteen. I lived with my parents for a little while which had its own set of challenges. But still is an opportunity that I was incredibly grateful for. And I closed my business at the end of last year I started a new job and I continued to chip away at the debt. You know thinking back when I was drinking wasn't just about what I was spending on booze. It was also about what I was spending money on when I was drunk Nordstrom. Saw Me at my worst. Also, what I was spending my money on to help myself feel better when I was hung over again Nordstrom saw me at my worst and I have the designer shoes election approve it. It was the things purchased online in a blackout. It was all the Times I said August this round when I, was happy hour with my friends blissfully ignoring the fact that I couldn't afford that next round it was the last hours spent being hung over not being able to be a productive human being you know not working not coming up with new ideas not contributing to the world. I. Dug myself into debt financially. And emotionally and physically and spiritually I mean. Alcohol puts you into debt in more ways than you ever realize I was basically in the red in always possible. But as of this past weekend. I in finally debt free. I paid off my last payment on my credit card. My business is behind me a completely closed chapter financially, and as an unmarried woman who lives in my single income household. This feels like a really big deal that I've worked incredibly hard for. But. I wouldn't be anywhere close to where I am now how they not stopped drinking.

5 Ways to Improve Your Videoconference Presence
"Needless to say I've had some interesting online conversations over the last couple of months. I have seen parts of people's houses that I really wasn't prepared for and then there has been a mix of interesting lighting in tin can audio. Yes it has been the wild wild west. So what I've decided to do is take the microphone by the horns and do two things for my contribution to the greater video conferencing world. I I have some tips today. That are easy to enable and that with a little adjustment here or there you should be able to enable. You should be able to use these pretty quickly second later this week. I'm releasing a new online workshop. Called the essential steps to impressive video conferencing. It's a one hour movie that covers audio video and environment and I really get into some cool tips now. I'll talk more about this later in the show. But I'm GonNa tell you right now. That is free to our inner circle members who support this podcast on patron for right now. Let's get to those five tips already tip number one get the to Kia. Yes and you probably want wine. Do you want me to and I'm thinking more like Ikea. Dot Com right because shopping inside care right. A lot of places probably just isn't going to happen but I can't dot com is doing well and if you go to the search box on in enter diffused lighting. You'll get a variety of lamps and lampshades. That are exactly what you need one way or another one of. Them's going to be something that you need now. What is the deal with this Derek? Well here's the deal that the lighting on so many of these calls that I'm watching is terrible. The light tends to be too harsh the wrong color. You all sorts of things and really. What I'm seeing is that people really aren't thinking about. How do I get a flattering light on my face? Which should be really kind of at the top of the list like this. I don't WanNa look terrible. When on these webcams alrighty so how do I look better well? The rule for portrait photography applies to video conferencing as well which is the larger the light source right in the closer to your face the softer the light. And then if you position that light so this more or less you know coming straight on to your face you know. That's what we call fashion lighting and it is very flattering. There's a reason why fashion photographers use it. It makes people look pretty so going back to Ikea if you shop on Kia and you shop. Four diffused lighting. You'll see these lamps and all sorts of goodies that you can accessorize your desk with in suddenly. Look a ton better and the reason why I pick you could get these all sorts of places. But they're actually quite affordable so you get a very attractive desk accessory now and you will look much more attractive on camera if you follow this tip. Now here's the other part of that tip which is get something that's daylight balanced or s close to daylight balanced as possible and again. This is another mistake that I see so often. Which is if you have a tungsten lightbulb shining on you. You're going to be orange. And if you have fluorescent tubes eliminating your mug you're GonNa be Green and neither of those really make great colors for face right so you want a daylight balance tube or as close to daylight as you can get so two parter. One diffused lighting coming straight on and be second part of one. Get as close to daylight balance as you can already. That's tip number one. Here's tip number two. It's called Darling. You Look Marvelous now. Unfortunately those built in seven twenty p Webcams for many laptops and desktops. Just aren't very flattery. And I would go so far as to say that. They are often terrible cracks me up. I have a a state of the art macbook pro thirteen inch. This is a gorgeous machine. It does everything a beautifully except for one thing except for one thing it has that lousy seven twenty p facetime camera that when I turn it on and I look at me I do not feel good. Do not feel plus. They can't control it It has way too much depth of field. I can't control exposure. I mean just goes on and on these things are agonizing and especially for those of us who like photography their double agonizing. So we've got to get away from those now. There are a couple of things you can do. If you have a cam link already which is a digital interface that allows you to connect your digital camera to your computer. You have a lump of gold right now because they are hard to find the ones that I really like are the ones who made by El Gato however if you do a little searching online and you search for video digital interface there are some other ones and there's one right now that's fairly affordable from e can get h Made by I o gear. I think it's like ninety nine bucks That people are saying works. Pretty well and the supply of those seem to be you know pretty regular. I know that this is probably the one thing that many people don't have but is the one thing that many people should get in especially in our audience because our audience as full of people who have these beautiful Sony Olympus Panasonic Fujifilm Nikon Canon cameras right. If you have a cannon camera by the way cannon just came out with some software that you can use and you don't have to get the digital interface and just play your cannon camera in so if you're a canon shooter you may want to check that out
Why savings bonds are GREAT!
"Barron's magazine is it's the investment newspaper that comes out once a week. That's four generally very very wealthy people so I was stunned to see that savings. Bonds are being recommended for small savers. I mean why why they would. Their readership doesn't care at all. I care but their readership doesn't care because this is a great value to you that you can earn right now on a savings. Bond is much better than what you can earn on a CD. In fact right now the rate that the e type bonds earning is three and a half percent approximately which is really great. It's really really good. And if you keep one for a period of time you end up being guaranteed doubling your money you want to read the briefing at Savings Bonds Dot Gov which is not the actual real address but it goes there and the I. Bonds. I remember they used to pay a a base rate of like three percent and things in that territory. Now they pay base rate of point two percent plus the rate of inflation. So nothing like the deal. They used to be but right now. That's getting you about two point. Two two percent on something you can buy for like very small amounts of money and keep them for up to thirty years. Who knows what conditions will be like in twenty fifty but right now? It's a good place to stash cash potentially and of all places. That's the kind of thing you'd expect to see and a local news source or newspaper or USA. Today not Barron's magazine.

Seeking Climate Positivity by 2030, Ikea to Overhaul Entire Business
"I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily happy Friday friends. Twenty twenty could be the year when a new kind of rivalry moves front and center sustainability. We've seen it before as younger consumers increasingly demand environmental and social responsibility more and more companies are pledging to clean up their supply. Chains use recycled plastic shrink water. Use in fact we reported on such business where late last year when we talked about target and Walmart racing to outshine in each other's use of solar power this year expect this race to eco-friendliness to start becoming his. Commoner rivalries more traditional measures of success like sales in profits giant furniture retailer. Ikea kicked it off in December by pledging to invest two hundred million dollars to become climate positive by twenty thirty. What haven't heard the term climate positive. Well it means reducing more emissions than an organization emits. That's a big deal for global companies like Ikea which has more more than four hundred twenty stores worldwide in order to achieve climate positively. Kia can't just cut down on travel. Use more renewable energy it has to rethink how how it designs all of its inexpensive furniture in the first place along with how consumers shop for it and how they eventually get rid of it. According to Fast Company in Short Short Ikea's commitment demands an entire overhaul of its forty six billion dollar business battle include choosing new building materials committing to responsible forestry Korean reforestation and helping transform the operations of suppliers and behavior of customers. I keep promising to step up. Its push for circular economy KONAMI. meaning that everything gets reused rather than winding up in a landfill. I is not the only large company to pledge.

"ikea" Discussed on The Box Of Oddities
"Yuri worked in a morgue for about thirty five years and so he saw the effects of certain behaviors on body smoking like smoking exactly so these are legitimate scientifically based warnings. We'll because you know the Museum of Sin Leads one to believe that the overall meaning for this is that. If you're bad you're GONNA be deformed some way yeah so yeah. That's yeah his. He has a very opinionated view. Of how one should live their life and he said that he doesn't feel bad about being opinionated because he's seen for thirty five years the effects of certain behaviors ears on people's bodies. Give me some example. So when you go to the exhibit on the entrance is a plaque and it said this is a place where the dead teach the living and the idea is to present the consequences of the you know the cigarettes or the indulging in an alcohol visually so it is meant for learning of but also for the general population. And it's a little bit of finger wagging I wanted to see body. Eddie works in Boston and they had healthy lungs next to somebody who had smoked for forty years shocking shocking yakking. Yeah and I think it's really interesting to learn like the effects of quitting smoking and how quickly those affects starts take place. There's some things that Start to affect your body almost immediately and then some things that will take years and years and years to recover based on you know how long long you smoked for and Etcetera Etcetera Anyway. That's not the point. Okay here we go okay. So they're There are three sections in this museum of the main section with various the preparations. The the things to show you others also an extensive library on medicine including rare and old additions and then there's a memorial exhibition Devoted to a medical specialist whose name was Luke and So there's a part of the the museum dedicated to that that surgeon so the Museum of sin contains containers with limbs and organs and human embryos and various bits. Camila strating the consequence of behaviors as we've said according to the website they have approximately eight hundred thirty five items and the number of rare slash collector items uh-huh which seems like a weird thing to call them About six hundred seventy five so yes you will see the effects of smoking on lungs you will see. Examples of kidney disease allegedly the result of abusing alcohol. You will also see the amputated hip of a young man who gave himself a tattoo in an effort to lure a woman so his his lust led him to losing his his leg. One of the seven deadly 's there's also the severed finger of a man who allegedly was a philanderer over and while leaving the home of his Lava Got His ring caught on a fence post and Ripped does finger on so there you go. That's what happens when you cheat you lose your fingers so some of these as you can tell maybe a little more of a stretch. There's also a skull on which a quote Unquote Horn grew through on the head of a burglar after he was hitting the head with a hammer while breaking into someone's house so it probably that's not what happened at at all but Yuri saw that as an opportunity to teach people that you shouldn't do bad things because then you'll end up in the Museum of San. I wonder I'm sure that you know there are many displays there that are legitimate but I wonder how many yeah he he kind of fudged the story I mean. Can you prove to us that. The burglar was hitting the head with a hammer. And if he was who's to say he didn't have that that Little Horn prior to his head injury. We don't know also.

I was just thinking of like the most elaborate stories stories that would have led to a display. Like maybe he comes across some sort of broken leg bone and he's like a broken leg bone and see that's what happened When a man who spent his whole life just eating and being lazy decided sided that he needed to run after the ice cream truck and then broke his leg leg broken sloth smutny leg broken and maybe he has somebody that worked at his museum that writes up these histories like the guy who writes the fortunes in the fortune cookies? That's his job. He just sits in the back. macroom says okay. Now I've got a busted femur okay fat guy in an ice cream truck okay good. I'll do that one. I think that could be kind of fun.

Bill was very greedy man and so he spent many late nights at the office than the office was next door to a business that sold dehumidifiers the fires and so the dehumidifier The dehumidify air made its way into the office building where bill worked and year after year are bill at leaded. Nose bleeds greedy greedy and he and now he has nosebleeds the end that would be a really long plaque at the museum. Anyway that's the Museum of Sin.

Lloyd Wright I like all those things in twenty eleven a woman in Poland a fifty six year old woman in Poland notified. Police that She was afraid somebody was trying to steal her husband's property and she handed them a a CD with a lot of images on it pictures photos of what the property was. They looked at it. They realized that they weren't looking at just a bunch of like junk in a in a in a shed but hundreds of renaissance and Baroque paintings which they thought was a little peculiar because the husband was a ninety ninety two year old former bricklayer. Not exactly the kind of guy who would have a priceless collection of rare art. Sure so the police arrived at the home and they found that the quote shed that his staff were stored in was not really a shed. It was a two story building with twenty inch thick doors and it was full of valuable paintings. The oldest one came from fifteen thirty two. Now you you would think that these priceless works of art. Many of which have been lost for centuries people didn't know where they were would be stored in a climate controlled safe area when in reality they were just kind of piled up on the floor with garbage on top of them now. Laugh just strewn about many of the paintings. Unfortunately we're in pretty poor condition. Almost three hundred works of art and they try to to price the collection but they couldn't do it immediately all they could say for sure it was that it was worth millions and millions of euros now the guy who owned him they only identify him as Antoni. 'EM was charged with handling stolen art. Because obviously he couldn't afford to buy all this stuff. What was going on a lot of the paintings bore marks for museums art? That had been stolen from museums. Interesting One lithograph was recognized as lost during the Nazi reign. I knew it I knew there was a Nazi connections Nazi connection. Nobody knows for sure how this happened. Maybe got his hands on a bunch of looted art that the Nazis left behind as they retreated from Soviet forces in Poland. which seems is like a pretty likely possibility? Another theory is that he somehow dug up collection in the nineteen sixties during building project. But he's not giving up the the secret son how he acquired all this art he is not talking and the reason is shortly after the collection was discovered did he suffered two strokes which left him unable to communicate so nobody knows I have another question. Why did his wife think that someone was trying to steal the art? Like why did she go to the police in the first place. Yes she had just seen people kind of a skulking around this building it was relatively close to their home and suspicious suspicious activity and so she reported that and that is what led to this discovery. Now do we think that she did not discuss reporting writing that with her husband. I because it seems like if he had been keeping quiet all this time probably they didn't want it reported to the police and I can't can't imagine like dinner that night like you did what there is another possibility. They say that possibly art dealer used to own the house and he merely left a whole bunch of paintings there when he moved away. But if that's the case it would seem unlikely that they had catalogued everything on a CD ROM with with all the photos of the of the merchandise in there. It just seems like In my opinion I'm I'm thinking it's it's stuff left over from the Nazi retreat. Um It makes less sense because there was a lot of Nazi treasure in Poland at the time so it makes sense to me. It's really interesting Q.. Imagine what the American pickers acres would have done.

In fact you may have seen the photo that we posted Christmas morning of us in our pajamas. We're still wearing those same pajamas right now. CBS but here. We are at the beginning of a New Year. Twenty twenty happy New Year. Everybody D- Are you doing a New Year resolution. Yes Yeah Yeah Yeah. Last year I resolved to go to the gym more often and so I went and got a gym membership this this year resolve to either. USE IT or cancel it sure one or the other. Yeah that's A. That's a good plan baby steps. I think that's important. I got a treadmill this year. which actually makes things a lot easier for me? Because I don't have to go somewhere do something which is nice. I don't tend to make resolutions because I feel like if I want to be better than I should be willing to be better at any point during the year But I do like the idea of resolutions. I've just never been very good at making Ma'am I guess. One great thing one great way to start the New Year is is by letting you know that quite a bit of money was raised for a very important. 'cause we were talking about this During the holy holidays are coming up to the holidays. We had a fundraiser. That we're teaming up with Himalayas for and You know I don't want to get all into it. But but it had to do with our premiums channel and subscribers and so on and so forth anyway Himalayas and with us and and are participating. His painting shows were able to donate Almost six hundred dollars to end the backlog. So that's pretty awesome. Thanks to those of you who participated in. That means means a lot to us. Do you go I do I go I got I know it's been a while I'm going I am here we go we all have this I I think hidden desire to find lost treasure or a valuable object at a yard sale or maybe on E. Bay or at goodwill of course that's why I love antiques roadshow so much love it well here are a couple of stories about people at found treasures or valuable objects and unexpected places back in October of twenty twelve in Rome a couple of guys Mirko Kurti and a friend lost their cats. They're cat got out of their apartment in took off. It was like ten o'clock at night on a Tuesday and the cat headed toward a low rock cliff off which was close to his home in a residential area of the city so they followed this cat and the cat somehow managed to get into a grotto and they followed followed. The sound of its meowing inside the small opening in the cliff. According to the Guardian the two guys found themselves surrounded by niches. That had been chiseled into the rock similar to those that were used by the Romans for the burial or actually the the The placement of funeral urns okay. And they're also appeared to be tons of human bones scattered about on the floor of this grotto. The so they called archaeologists to the scene and they said the two it was a tomb and it would probably dated from somewhere in the first century. B We see maybe between that in the second century AD and because the niches were used to store ashes in earns the bones had probably ably tumbled into the tomb from a separate burial space which was higher up inside the cliff. No they had not noticed this opening in the cliff before it was pretty obvious. They speculated that there had been some heavy rains in the weeks prior and that the rain had probably caused the rocks that were concealing the the entrance to the tomb to to crumble is very soft kind of rock and it was often used in that area throughout the centuries because it was easy to Chisel into they used used it for burial purposes You know tombs in that sort of thing. But but because of it being so soft and because of the elements most of them are a good portion of they are estimating have never been found because they you know they just get buried island imagine and also with that kind of soft rock. I bet there's a a lot of collapsing. Yes for some reason the word grotto like I get what it means but when I hear it I immediately think of some sort sort of like late day cafe. I'M GONNA head down to the grotto and get a cafe. You know coffee. I don't know why but that's what it makes me think now you would think that a discovery like this would be received by the locals with much excitement. Not so much. The case irritated now because it was the discovery it was pretty close to not Kia store and all the cars had to park further away from the store as to not contaminate the area while they while the archaeologists just dug it up. You had to walk a little extra distance to get to the Ikea wait. Was this an America. No it's enrolling okay. It just seems seems like a very American reaction you will to historical find people are people said. It was amazing though to wander into a tomb so close to his house and he'd been living there for years and had no idea was there he said it was the most incredible experience of his life. And you'll be glad to. I know they found the Kitty. Good okay I found this article article in the New York Times in one thousand nine hundred eighty three Frank Lloyd. Wright introduce the demonstration ministration house at an exhibition of his work in New York and was put on display ultimately at the Guggenheim Museum. The final word Guggenheim mm-hmm. I loved him in police academy the House was torn down in nineteen fifty four after the exhibition was over and it pretty much join. Join the ranks of many other Wright buildings that have been lost over the years after the house was taken apart right. Sold it to a real estate dude. Whose name was Hayward Herald Hayward Hayward became ill and he sold the house to a guy named David Hengqin now he was the contractor that actually put put the building up in the first place Hakin tried to sell it but he had no luck one buyer declined because the house didn't satisfy legal minimum cubic cubic foot requirements in his town and other said no because the local building inspectors didn't approve of a flat roof because you know Shares was was very boxy. Yeah it's not real smart to have any of those in the northeast where you see a lot of snow etc right. So he gave up trying to sell it in the fifties and and just moved onto other other projects but he stored it in the basement of a building that he owned all the pieces he stored award in a basement of in this building. That's not any forgot about it. What well he'd just didn't forget about it but he just he didn't do anything with it in one thousand nine hundred eighty four four? He remembered the house and he didn't want to have to deal with trying to sell it so he gave it to the television station W. N. E. T. in New York as part of their annual fundraiser. PBS fundraiser okay. So the news of this got out especially in the architecture world and people started just losing their freaking minds. The head of the Archives of Rights Old Estate said we were completely unaware that this house now still existed a former resident of the society of architectural historians. Called it quite a fine really quite exciting. And one of Wright's biographers biographers commented something somebody will be able to make a lot out of. There will have to be takers for this. The House has a complicated history. It was originally created as a means of focusing public attention on rights long career. He was eighty six years old by the time. The house was erected interest in producing serious architecture that it could be affordable to the average family was what rights goal was. The house was a special edition to a large exhibition of photographs and models of rights. Rights work called sixty years of living architecture. The house cost initially fifteen thousand dollars to erect. At least that was the original plan and this was in fifty three fifty three fifty four. That's what they projected the cost to be but it actually turned out to be closer to forty six thousand.

I'm Sean curvy Donham, the actress, Amy Poehler once said, I is Swedish for argument research, Daniel Chon has one explanation for why Bill that your cell phone chatter can cause so much friction between partners. Imagine that you built a table. Maybe a little bit crooked, probably your wife or your neighbor would see it for what it is. You know, probably shoddy piece of workmanship, but to you, the table might seem really great because you're the one who created it is the fruit of your labor, and that is really the idea behind the key effect. It is that we come to over value, the things that we have created ourselves breath, Pelham's research about a preference for people and places that are associated with us made me think about a related idea. The narcissus effect also shows up in our preference for things that we make ourselves the way we think about KEA is that I can't give you good furniture for low cost because they afloat. Lots of the cost onto the consumer assembly costs. But in fact, we innocence challenging that idea and is actually psychological benefit behind this, that actually people might end up liking furniture more, because they built it and says, not so much cost, but of benefit that they get to build your own furniture. Daniela's co-authors did a series of experiments to test this hype asus. They brought volunteers into the lab and gave them either a LEGO car pre assembled or give them Legos and instructions and told the participants to build car themselves, then the volunteers, how much would you pay to keep your LEGO car, and what we find is that the people who build their own Legos, not only are willing to pay more to keep their assembled Legos. But also when we asked him, how proud they are their own creations. They tend to be prouder of their legs and mind, you these are labels that are designed to five to seven year olds, but nonetheless seems to be some competent some pride associated with wants creation, even for basic things building Legos, the researchers replicated the study using other products. Like I key on a chair and the effect was the same people who spent time and effort, building something felt proud of what they'd built fell in love with it, and winning to pay lots of money to keep the things they'd built from the perspective of rationally communist, this doesn't make much sense. The students might be willing to pay twice as much money to buy exact same, LEGO car if they just finished building.

"Microsoft dot com slash AI. Researchers have long observed a tendency for people to be drawn to others who are like them in some way, when we hear someone else has the same birthday or the same name. We feel a little tug of kinship, some of us might even be drawn to move to states that sound familiar. There's at least a modest tendency for women named Georgia to gravitate toward Georgia women named Virginia to gravitate toward Virginia, and the more closely, the name resembles estate, the bigger the effect appears to be this is Brett Pelham. He's a professor of psychology at Montgomery college in Maryland. He studied something called implicit egotism, which is the idea that many biases are unconscious and one very well, studied bias was egotism value in the self favorably, protecting the self and so forth. And so we simply got the idea that there several different things that at least to some degree reflect that preference for the self an attraction to things that resemble the self like having an affinity for some. With the same birthday or someone with the same name or even going into a profession. That sounds like an echo of your name. So we originally looked at whether people named Dennis or Denise gravitate toward dentistry, but we learned quickly that it's really hard to get data on those things. So you there aren't great directories of medical professionals. There is a guy named Abel who was able to document review on his paper. And every time you say this, I'm going to jump in and say, a guy named Abel, who was able to do something he was able to do a lot of things he showed that people whose last name is Dr or whose last name is the word lawyer. The name lawyer gravitated toward those two professions. There are lots of other examples. Brett looked at a massive database of millions of Americans names from the recently released one thousand nine hundred forty senses to examine, if they will brought patterns, like carpenters working in carpentry bakers. Working as bakers butchers working as butchers minors workings Meyer, Mason's workings Mason. So we. At every surname, there is currently the top two thousand surnames that happens to be a career name. And we looked at all of them. They're Levin of them that are pretty common. I just listed a few and for every single surname in the nineteen forty cents is with something like a I think it one hundred and thirty million people. We were able to show that for every single surname, there was at least a week tendency for people to gravitate toward careers that perfectly match their last names. So the obvious thing to say, of course, is that the reason you have a slightly larger number of carpenters be carpenters is that the name carpenter probably originated from families who were in carpentry. And so there is some kind of ancestral connection to the profession. That is driving both the names and the choices quite possibly. But if you do the math, you pretty quickly say it gets to be a pretty tiny percentage of people. So if you assume that even over ten generations, there's a fifty percent chance that you did what your dad did and a fifty percent chance that he did what his grandfather did? Which is probably higher than reality. You're talking about a probability of less than one thousand already over ten generations. In other words, surnames are so old and they change hands. You know, when a woman named carpenter Mary's accounting farmer, for example, that, that's really it really just can't account for an effect anywhere near this magnitude..

"Hello from the newsroom of the financial times in London. I'm Katie Martin today. We're looking at IKEA in India. Josina sing talks to Amy Kasmin the f. t. South Asia bureau chief about the hurdles, the Swedish retailer had to overcome to open its first store in India and about what its prospects are for making a successful venture. Emme you were the launch. Just describe what it was like at the inauguration. Did people thronged the store as it opened, the mood at the inauguration was really something they believe that around twenty five thousand people came into the store on the first day. I think possibly more would have come in, but there started to be some crowd control issues, but I was there when the doors opened and people started flowing in and they really were people from all walks of life. The first people that is so walk in or a Muslim family where the woman was in a full burqa with only is showing then she was followed behind by a family where the wife was wearing traditional. Sorry, followed by young couples who looked like IT professionals in t shirts and Microsoft employees told me take the day off work and then a family from Chennai, hundreds of kilometers away who said they'd been waiting so long for this, and they wanted to be there on the first day. So it was a very, very diverse crowd representing really all walks of life. I give me did I bid to enter India over a decade ago? Why has it taken so long to make it to India? Finally? So I can't actually apply to enter India and set up a retail business here back in two thousand and six twelve years ago. But at that time, India still had very tight restrictions on foreign investment in retail businesses. Foreign companies could not own more than. Fifty one percent of retail business here. I Kita applied and then probably started finding out about the rules and then started lobbying for the rules to be changed in around two thousand nine. I ki- actually announced that they were giving up an abandoning their plans to set up shop in India because the Indian government after many, many discussions. And and I key also said credit promises that the rules would be changed. Nothing was happening and it was not until two thousand eleven that the Indian government finally changed the rules about foreign direct investment in retail and decided to permit one hundred percent full foreign ownership of what they call single brand retail. So single brand retail is when everything that you sell in your store is your brand. So every single thing is say, I ki- as every chair of re house, Brooke. It's all branded. IKEA multibrand retail where one hundred percent foreign investment is still not allowed would be something like WalMart, which is basically selling the goods of many, many different brands in two thousand and eleven India. Finally agreed to allow one hundred percent foreign investment in single brand retail, but then also imposed these sourcing conditions saying that thirty percent of everything that I ki- as sold in India had to be locally sourced in India, but not just that, but maiden India by small and medium enterprises. I ki- found that condition also objectionable because they said if the business is growing and we're expanding than if our suppliers grow them, suddenly they can't be our suppliers anymore because they're like not small and medium enterprises. So they negotiated for another year with the Indian government, which finally relaxed, the sourcing conditions to say. Say you can fully own your business and within five years, thirty percent of everything that you sell. An India should be made in India, preferably by small and medium enterprises. So it wasn't mandatory that the maiden India things had to be done by small and medium enterprises. So I think Kia then finally felt in two thousand twelve that it had the conditions that it could live with and six years after its rigid obligation. It reapplied for permission to invest in India. I ki- because it stores or so huge. They actually buy the land. They build the buildings. It's not like they just like walk into an existing shopping mall. So that process has taken a long long time. And finally, they opened their first IKEA in India in the southern city of Hyderabad to all those protracted negotiations finally came to fruition and the companies here, how much is it investing in India? So I keep has. Permission to invest one point, five billion dollars in India, and it has a big plan. It already has an addition to the land and store that it has built and completed building an open in Hyderabad. It has acquired a site in Mumbai. It's planning a large store in Delhi, and it's planning a large store in Banglore. So these will be its first four showpiece stores. This hydro stores four hundred thousand square feet. These are the huge traditional IKEA's stores. They say, basically by the end of ten years, they want to be present in forty nine cities, thirty of those cities. We'll have some form of physical presence and the rest will be served by ecommerce. I keel is looking because of the difficulty of setting up these huge large stores and putting them on the periphery of these vast Indian cities which can be hard for people to reach. They're also planning to open smaller store. Doors in city centre locations. So it'll be kind of a combination of smaller cities stores. And then ecommerce, they are talking about investing farther and seeking more permission. I think I had definitely feels that India is an extremely promising market for what they have to offer. Indian consumers are notorious for looking for a good deal for looking quality at the right price, and there's also huge numbers of young people that are starting families. Just now the millennials breaking away from the traditional joint families and moving into their own small apartments. And I think they've really see this as a tremendous potential markets, I guess, seems to be betting big on the Indian market. What are some of the main challenges and risks for the company think so, obviously, India's an incredibly price sensitive market. I think I have really has gone out of their way to try to make adjustments that they think will appeal to Indians. For example, at the restaurant, there's. No Swedish meatballs. There are chicken bowls and vegetables and along with the Norwegian Salman or Swedish, Simon, you can have dull Marconi or berry Onis on the food front. I think they do not want to be seen as an elite store for elite people to undo pieces like three dollars and fifty cents. So they've got a thousand items you can take on today that are under that price point. The cheapest item that they're selling is a set of four, very brightly colored reusable plastic spoons. I actually bought some for my daughter to pack in her school lunch box. They were selling for just fifteen rupees. That is a tiny amount. I saw a man who was carrying his motorcycle helmet in his hand. He added upside down the out a few packs of those colorful spoons given the amount they've invested. They cannot make a profit by just selling lots and lots of packs of inexpensive plastic spoon. So I think it will be profitability. I think they have a product offering that speaks to the. Indian consumer that speaks to many consumers across the classes. But if the rupee weakens considerably, the imported products will become much more expensive. And also this government suddenly seems to be displaying probably in keeping with the tune of the times a protectionist bent import tariffs on a variety of items have been raised. Some of it has been retaliation against US tariffs against Indian aluminium steel, but some of it is just protectionist and the government has also set up a clai power task force to advise on how to reduce imports. So if somehow I ki- which around seventy percent of its things at least are imported. If tariffs on imports rise or of the currency foles. Pricing of these items could become more complicated and the offering might look less attractive and less affordable to the target market. So I think that is one of the risks. Otherwise, in general, I think that they seem to. Overly done their homework. They visited a thousand homes to assess what Indians are looking for, how they organize themselves, how they use their space. And if tariff barriers don't become a problem, I'd say they seem like they should do pretty well. That's all from me, an Amy in Delhi. Thanks for listening.
