A Seller of Purple Goods, a Jailer, and an Unknown God

"Listen we are. We're jumping back into ax today to continue our journey In Discussing Acts Sixteen. And today we're looking at a seller of purple goods a jailer and an unknown God. There's some incredible stories in these few chapters of the book of acts. And so we're going to dig in and so right off the Bat and act. Sixteen we encounter a friend and CO worker of Paul who is going to factor in heavily just future ministry from here on this Timothy in acts. Sixteen you hear Paul came also to Derby into lie. Stra and disciple. Was there named Timothy now on Timothy? That's like he's like he is probably outside of Barnabus right. He's going to be such a prominent figure for the rest of the New Testament right. He's pulse keynote. Address letters to Timothy and their ministry collaborates. Paul talks about missing Timothy wanting to send timothy when like these guys. Are Thickest thieves so what this Timothy Sharing Common with Paul that we find out real quickly here because he says disciple their name Timothy the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer but his father was a Greek. So what do we know kind of a is there a reason maybe that they hit it off so closely rank as Paul also has great gin Jr like this Ju- Greek connection right? I see what you're trying to get an I. Maybe this is just being like not seeing this before. Maybe other people have seen this in. It's really evident how ironic that chapter sixteen in terms of the contents is coming right after chapter. Fifteen right because what do we just talked about in chapter? Fifteen is this gentile inclusion in Jerusalem Council. Of what are we going to Ask Gentile converts to its fulfillment of the Jewish faith. Now what are we Gonna? Ask THEM TO DO. Or WE'RE NOT GONNA ask them to be circumcised. They just need to abstain from sexual immorality abstained from food sacrificed to idols food with blood in it. And then here you have. Timothy who is perfectly kind of representing both of these cultures of Christianity is going out into a Jewish culture because his mom is Jewish but then but then his father is. Greek is gentle. And so I certainly number one and God's providence that this is the kind of Co laborer that he would give Paul to help him Of course so Paul is is thoroughly Jewish right. She makes clear New Testament. Also somebody who understands in converted from also a Greek culture. But here's what's crazy about this Mason King and I in our colleague here at the Institute. We're talking about this yesterday. As he was preparing for a lecture. The training program is your little further so in chapter one dollars. Okay so this is Timothy. He's the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer but his father was Greek. He's spoken well of strap but then in verse three We. We learned that Paul Wants Timothy to accompany him. So come be my ministry partner. This is now the missionary journey that we're going out on any took him. And what does he do? Circumstances sizes them. Yeah right after we were just told. Hey you don't have to do that. Like some stage fright about becoming a Christian you. You're you're you don't need to do that. All you need to do as abstain from sexual immorality but here he gets a ministry partner. They're going to go on a Jewish gentlemen but primarily gentile mission. Yeah any circumstances them. Yeah why I think you know. It's funny because I was. I was hoping that we would talk about this I think that it is partly or I think it. Lines UP WITH PAUL's vision of laying down prerogatives and privileges. For the sake of ministry like pulsing. Listen you know like he talks about later on said I could I could earn incomes off my ministry but I'm choosing not to. I'm laying down right in order that you know I could be available to you that there are no road blocks in the going forth of the Gospel. I think this is a strong and weak thing. I think that Paul Sang Listen. Hey Timothy they're going to be people because right because his ministry you find out later we're gonNA talk about it. He goes in. He gets into a town where to go synagogue right right. He's he's going right there. So that's where even if the mission extends out to gentiles each newtown? He's coming into. He's he's jumping into the synagogue. I and I think that with Timothy. It says that hey. They knew that his father was Greek. Right all new all new that new the Jews father was Greek so I think Paul saying listen. You know obstacle. Let's just remove all of the things. Don't pause for awkward. Well it does seem like a like okay. Did they lift up? Everybody's rogue don't think honestly. I do have questions about that. I just I can't heads or tails of it. Everybody knew this guy was not a gentile. I mean do. Do you walk different. That'd be what is the deal. Evidently there was widespread information about this. That Paul was like listen. It's going to be a stumbling block. We have this. We're not gonNA having side conversations that distract us from Gospel conversations. Yes but it's really. I mean so basically you have. Hey you guys don't get circumcised. This guy get circumcised which I think is really informative for us in the modern church where anytime. There is a temptation to widely prescribed. Something that is Has already been noted. Hey this is not a test for Orthodoxy That we should we should question what. What's the cost benefit to whether someone here's your particular command or not? Yeah and and I think a coal here a picture to that part of the burden of spiritual leadership regardless of where it's at is the willingness. Yeah lay down. Because he's yes. He's a leader. That's important distinction. Here is is is that it's prescribed for him because he'll be a particular position of visibility exactly and so you can think of all kinds of correlations for for leaders in the Church today being above reproach being probably yeah number one of them And often we can talk about things like Christian Freedom That's like a theological category to say like wherever the Bible doesn't speak but your conscience doesn't allow you to do something. Don't prescribe that for me. We get to walk in freedom. And that's true and that's really important especially in some maybe kind of heavily. Legalistic circles fundamentalist circles. That would say we're going to go beyond scripture and demand that you also maintain these ethical boundary markers but the other side is also true. Is that that could lead to an anti communism where we basically don't WanNa follow any law at all. Yeah and Paul's really charting a middle course here and saying yes. We are free in Christ acts fifteen while at the same time. We're willing to lay down our rights for the sake of the rest of the Gospel Acts Sixteen. Yeah that's a really incredible tension. It really didn't find myself. You know go on my own personal life. Moving between both of them. I am free in Christ but I also I don't want to leave anything down. You know freedom all you have to do. Is these things. Then you realize you know what this could be a stumbling block or an officer for the Gospel. Lord help me lay this down. We'll and yes all yes to all of that. That's really important. I think it's also an indicator that we've mentioned multiple times in acts that that the Church's formation is emerging from from not just thoroughly but almost completely Jewish sensibilities and sources. So it's easy for US specifically for non Jewish people to really quickly rush past all of the The Jewish roots of this story and access. Full of these little glimmers where you start to see like their self understanding of this is as the full expression the proper expression of what all the. Old Testament was about three. It's still very much we rush. Pass it in almost Judaism as like this all together separate thing and we know that in light of the resurrection how the Christian community forged it has from the Resurrection Onward. It became increasingly more distinctive. The the difference but at this point they are still very close to that. Yeah for sure. Well and I think our unfamiliarity with the Old Testament means that as as as New Testament gentile believers were like circumcisions. Weird guys like. Why are we even talking about this like? Why is there a Jerusalem Council? You know you would think they'd want to dump that off as soon as possible front. But if you're familiar like with the story for example Moses where where God says. He's he's going to kill him if he doesn't circumcise his son because he hasn't been Abedian to to circumcise his son. And then Tzipora gets in there and fixes the problem in a rather dramatic fashion. Those are the stories that are are looming large in the consciousness of the Jewish mind. And so it's not it's not a small thing at all. I mean it is it is it was a it was such a strong dividing line in the Old Testament and Paul understands that in order to initiate a conversation about The shedding of blood for the renewing of life. Yeah he he needs to make accommodations

NASA overcomes military's GPS tweaks to peer inside hurricanes

"Now we have Paul vision, a staff writer for SCI. He's here to talk to us about gauging the speed of hurricanes, or at least trying to gauge the speed of hurricanes using satellites. Hi, Paul, okay. I've never thought about this before. But I have seen images of hurricanes. You know, on the Weather Channel they show me. Here's the I in the have the different winds Fay's kind of labeled with color where are they getting those winds? Be measurements. Well, whenever a hurricane moves close enough to the US, we still have the, the fleet of hurricane hunter aircraft that fly into the hurricanes to make direct measurements of the wind. So that's gone on for decades, but for hurricanes there further out know there's a limit to help much you can do this. And once the water dense enough time, deflects satellite measurements opens the traditional measures of wind. Okay. So one way, is with a plane that flies dangerously close to a store. Yeah. Great. That sounds awesome. And then the other is to look at the surface of the water. So we're gonna talk today about a different way of measuring. Hurricanes speeds. Can kinda summarize, how that would work? Sure. So this is a technique was first tested on these hurricane hunter planes, actually, but it, it takes the GPS radio signals that are beaming down all the time everywhere, from above those reflect off the surface of the ocean. And this array of eight satellites catches, these GPS signals, and uses their roughness to infer the winds above them. Okay. That's going to be more accurate than the other measures. We talked about before it's not so much accuracy is about where it can look can look into the heart of hurricanes because these long GPS radio wavelengths can penetrate through clouds and as I t's at the top of the show. There was a problem here where you're trying to use GPS. Did you this precise measurement? But then they ended up having some issues with military tweaking. These GPS signals. Yeah. So the turns out the newest generation of GPS satellites have the ability to boost the signal strength of what they're beaming down. And some of these GPS is still run by the US military. They started doing this soon after this mission launched as the satellites were traveling over the swath of Africa Middle East in eastern Europe. And this really kind of screwed with the calculations that the researchers had because they had assumed that it would not at the strength was constant now Busse said that we're specific location. Interesting. So how did they account for that? They couldn't ask the military to stop doing that for whatever. No, they had to figure out a way around it. It realize they have these small antennas on the top, the satellites that are taking the normal GPS signals in, and the essentially wrote the software for them, so that they would measure the strength of the signal in addition to using it for location and time that took about two years of work, and they had upload new software toll the satellites to actually. Make this happen. And you say all the satellites are eight their acronyms cygnus. I believe, yes, this is the constellation of eight micro-satellites, and who owns those satellites, psalm the NASA program. Okay, 'bout about one hundred fifty million dollars launched a two and a half years ago. So our micro-satellites cheaper than say, a big regular size sidelight was definitely much cheaper than the, you know, billion dollar weather satellites, but it's also very focused on this one application, word and modern whether satellite has a bunch of different instruments, mounted on it. But this was a way of testing this new technique, and it could eventually cheaper because this is the first round doing it, you know, if you want to do this for weather agency. Maybe it could be a bit cheaper will if we know more about the inside of hurricanes further away from the US, we know more about these wind speeds, what would that help us understand what, what does that do for us? It's all about the prediction of storm about both the path. It will take an especially the intensity of the winds and how it will develop the law. Trim hope is that by measuring the inside the guts of these wins fairly frequently can really improve your because this data is then ingested into the models used by the weather service to look at future of these storms. And if had a lot of issues with getting intensity the strength storms. Right. And this type of Queant could boost that I also read in your story that this confused over land, as well to understand more about storms. Yes. So this is about us soil moisture actually. So they're satellites that look at soil moisture purpose built, but infrequently this the consumer the same place, maybe every three days. So that doesn't allow you to ask questions about the short term Lucien of soil and kind of how response to water and gets rid of water. So we care about this because of flooding flooding and soil water in the soil feeds back into rainfall and all sorts of connections. What are some of the broader questions that these satellites could answer when researchers realized that? These would be able to measure wins beneath storms. It's not just about hurricanes. There's this thing single. The Madden Julian oscillations is series of storms that March across the belly of the planet from the Indian Ocean east, and they've really kind of tell connections from an help control a lot about the weather year to year and researchers can't see the winds underneath these storms. But now with cygnus it seems like it can start to see that wins are actually feeding the precipitation that allows these storms to continue which some have thought was one reason, but there have been other through now. This might really start to help people figure out how these storms could change with climate change. What's the next step here? These satellites are going to die at some point, right? The limiting factor of the satellites are the batteries likely in those should lasts for seven years there in low earth orbit. So they will descend into the atmosphere and burn up. The big question going forward is will Noah start to use these satellites or satellites like them in the future to inform weather forecasts? So. This is a NASA mission. It's only supposed to last seven years. Noah's unlikely to use these satellites for their own weather predictions because they like to own their hardware. But this could really make the case firms Montaigne something like this in the future. Okay. Thank you so much Paul, my pleasure.

"But also introduces you to some interesting characters also known as guests today, we have the chairman of Dunkin brands, I which I think is now DD, right? It's just I don't even know if it's called Dunkin. It's just called Duncan. Nigel Travis is his name. He has a really cool background. Actually he's worked at blockbuster. He ran that. He's a he actually was sort of came into the industry as through the HR track. But he is the chairman of Dunkin brands he was the company's chief executive officer for almost ten years until the end of last year. And he just cool is this book that I found interesting, it's called the challenge culture. So here's our interview with Nigel Travis what is the best career or financial decision that you've ever made? Wow. That that's the tough one. That's an icebreaker. Yeah. I mean, it was probably doing something. I've done many things in my life. I never wanted to do expected to do. And I think the first one was an is mentioned in the book when my Burger King berry Gibbons said you're so involved in the business you need to run something. I've pushed back obviously said, no, no. I wanted to be the best IHL person one can ever be. And as a result. He said, no, no. You're too involved in the business too interested in the details garnered run something. So when brand something that was a great decision. And that's a really good piece of advice. I think that you may be among a very small cohort of HR professionals who move into the C suite is that wrong of me to that. Yeah. As Mary forgot, no second name at general, Moses. Yeah. Barra. Spend some time in HR, and there are two or three others that I've found, but I actually think it's a great introduction to business because business at the end of the day is all about people. I also recently bumped into McDonald's franchisee announced this person the question how much time do you spend on people because people's big challenge and he said ninety percent, and I think most people don't spend anywhere near that. I think it's interesting because when you look if you look at the world and relationships and people, you know, you have to feel like the leader understands you here's you yet. So much of the large corporate universe is around these numbers and the metrics, and it seems to be a real divisiveness in the world because if I'm holding your feet to the fire based on the numbers, but yet I don't know who the heck you are you don't think I have anything else at stake here except the number. Don't care about me as a human being that. I'm not going to be as good a worker. So talk a little bit about how you develop this concept of the challenge culture. Well, yeah. I mean, as I said before I started in human resources. In fact, I started in labor relations on one the benefits starting in labor relations called industrial relations in the UK. Is you see what happens when things down because you have conflict in those days between management and unions. And I looked the result the bad results that can come. So I spent first twenty years in human resources, and I learned the culture was very important and point a keep making about the book is everyone focuses on the challenge from the culture. And those two words there, and I think in many ways, the culture is the more important word, and then when I was at Grand Metropolitan, which was the big British conglomerate owned all kinds of companies from Alpo to Paul vision too. In the UK BAAs restaurants breweries betting stores, you name it. So we had a lot of companies when I was there. I got promoted eventually to be the group management development director, and I worked with the then chairman and CEO Elon shepherd, and he had a style that was relatively aggressive. But with a good sense of humor. And it was actually described as the light grip on the throat in newspaper articles and said sit down and talk about how we want to run this organization. We sat down we had several sessions, and we talked about things being action oriented and focused on people. But the one that described that light grip on the throat, I came up with the determine the challenges culture. And I say, this is a much more better way of describing it. So that's one that I came on the same. I never really thought any more about it until I was at blockbuster where despite what most people think wishes we completely dropped the ball. We didn't we missed a few things because we were being tackled by technology all the time. We run by Viacom, which before we started. I said overall was a great experience for me. And we have people at Sumner Redstone clearly very involved in the business. But we probably missed how big net flicks was going to be with definitely did miss that. And eventually tried to catch up. So the whole challenge coach concept got reinforce there where I said to myself if you don't constantly challenge the status quo or or challenge what you'll do every day. You're not doing the right thing. So it evolved from there. And then when I became a CEO, I implemented it, and essentially the book tells the story that the obstacle that. I see in a lot of organizations is the CEO gets up and starts talking about culture. But then two three four levels down that culture is not being permeated throughout the organization. So how do you do that? Okay. So great question. I think you have to demonstrate in everything you do. And you're right. The of people will sit down and say, okay, this agree on now culture have a big discussion and nothing happens. So the first thing is I'm vigorous of following up on everything. I mean, I probably one of the most aggressive follow uppers, and it, and you don't have to be nasty with it. You can just say any progress on this. But I think you have to multiple it down the organizations in an example, I describe in detail in the book is called the coffee, which is actually something that assaulted at blockbuster took it through Papa John's, and then use it at Dunkin effectively what it is is taking people lower down the organization usually below the director level doing a diagnos Lhasa functions. Twenty people in the room, and we basically say, okay, we're going to have the equivalent of a TV talk show. We're gonna talk about subjects. You can talk about anything you want. You can talk about Dunkin donuts. You can talk about Baskin Robbins talk about sales. You can talk about acquisitions you can talk about the rumors about us being a quad. So I've deliberately at the stop opened it up. So there are no tabu subjects. I've even had meetings said, okay, I wanna talk. About the metoo movement. Because it's important that you tell people is notebook barriers. We then have a discussion it isn't a Q and A of Nigel sometimes people try make it. But the first thing I do think that's a wonderful question. I have a view. But what do you think about that? So you don't wanna put your voice into this before you hear from the person? That's a better way. You know? It's funny. Because what I I love also that when you say here for silicate the discussion, I don't dominate it. I think that that's a really hard thing for strong willed professionals to learn that in order to get somebody to open up to you. You gotta give them space. And if you don't give them space why they opening up in the first place. Good point. I think that's where my HR background helps. Because in HR if you do the job properly should be done a lot listening. We'll get back to our interview with Nigel Travis in just a minute during the break. You may want to just send us an Email some financial question on your mind. We're here. For you. The Email address asked Jill Jill on money dot com. We'll be right back.

"Your neighbor, you, you will leave room on the edges of your fields. You will welcome the alien in the stranger. There was no separation between Israel the religious entity and Israel the political entity. They were wed together. And when you read the six hundred thirteen commandments of the Old Testament rate, they concern the most Muendane stuff. Yes, there were offering commandments and yes, there were worship commandments commandments against the Daltry and dollar tree and all sorts of things. But then there were commandments about how you treat relatives and how you treat the elderly and whether or not you let your beard grow and whether or not you should have tattoos and all of those were over against the practices. Of the other imperials of the day, right? Yes. Theory set theory standing here raising his hand as if he has something to say, what would you like to say sir? Leggatt. So. Got legal coming. Vokes budgets was on FOX, the gum. Deserve and. Of fuck dug up. Yes. Well done, Seth theory. So there was vox podcast FOX, please talk to Seth. Thank you guy. Leave a review. I tunes enter that. Totally. So so Paul's imagination for the church's saturated by what Israel's calling Israel's call it was so mundane. How do you handle mildew? How do you? How do you wash dishes? I mean the whole thing, what can you eat? What can you not be concerned the most basic stuff of human life. And so when we get to Paul's vision for the church guided by the spirit of Jesus, you get that same sort of robust vision. There is no distinction between with the church did in their worship services, and the fact that there was no, there were no poor people among them right at me. That was all one thing that wasn't like there was a political thing, and there was a religious thing. It was because the Jesus has risen from the dead. There will be no poor people among us, right? And they were so subversive in their use of tone. That's that's compelling to think about. We'll think about if you if you're able to see like, you know, the early movement of the church and like in a small gathering and realize that the economic status basically became flat, like like even just in a room, even fifty people. We're all of a sudden it was like, you You know. know, it's all really communal and social, but it's like we're all in this, but it's interesting because it doesn't just sound metaphorical. You see, because that's what we do in the church today is we make it right. Well, you know, it's okay that you don't have enough money, but you're rich and spirit just like I, that's what we use the leveler not the fact that it's like, wait, I don't need this much money. You need more money. I'm going to give you money. So that way we're actually socially and economically, like an equal thriving. Yes, like it'd be that's like, but it's like you were to look at the constant placement of multiple houses and rooms doing that. I mean like, well, we're really talking about a real kind of people group a real kind of social and governmental group, right? So this, this is the best this standing an inch away from Andy staring at him. Imagine looking straight for to Cyprus file and like half inch knows chic. The closeness as, oh, yes, no, that's exactly right Indian. And that's the big point of making is for God's vision for Israel. There was no distinction, right worship was a holistic. So I'm quoting Tim Gamba's who have been quoting worship is a holistic and integrated set of political, commercial, economic, and social practices. So worship, right, and how the poor were treated were inextricably linked, right? That's why Jesus says, love of got in love neighbor is the same thing..

"Greatest of evils that could be done at the time being being abandoned and mocked and beaten and score ged and left to die in a roman on a roman cross outside the city of jerusalem i mean you could not have imagined a more political death than the death that jesus suffered and yet this was the death i mean please understand the idea of salvation is political but jesus's death was political in that respect as well jesus was seen as a terrorist jesus now but we know the romans were but i'm just saying jesus was an insurrectionist you don't you don't waste roman crosses on people have just petty crimes not oh you put people to death who've demonstrated a willingness to rebel against roman rule so the fact that jesus is carrying a cross dies upon it means for paul that now only has jesus been resurrected but the crucified jesus has been directed and and then even more specifically and importantly that god accomplished his self diffic purposes not through power or domination or coercion but rather through the giving of the son of himself on across it was it was self serving love it was servant hearted love it was the forgiving of his enemies enemies are putting him to death that the way the police the political entity of the kingdom of god was arriving was through the crucified jesus now those are the first two points third point and this is the one we'll develop in part four of this whole conversation but because of this paul recognizes now that political engagements and again i don't mean political engagement in two party system like we're talking i mean engagement in the police that you are surrounded by that that kind of engagement has to be now this is a word that michael gorman uses that i love it's crucify form it's cross shaped the that if if if jesus whom god is installed as ruler of all things is vindicated and triumphs by means of the cross then all those loyal to him must be crucified form again there's that word that is oriented by and shaped by the cross and this is quoting gumboots right here if the ruler is crucified form then the body politic the police the community of jesus must have its political economic and social life holistically determined by the cross and not by power coercion or violence now saul had been using power coercion and violence to protect the the political entity israel from this heresy of christians that had been springing up all around jerusalem and so for him this was a pretty radical reversal right that he'd he'd been not only sanctioning murders but he had been somebody who was threatening people by putting them are threatening people by threatening to put them to death and been prison in them and so on now paul is going to recognize that it is through weakness in not strength if the kingdom comes and that the policy of the people of jesus is executed the fourth transformation of of paul's vision is that resurrection doesn't work like he had anticipated now this is a little tough to explain but the idea for paul is that resurrection was going to be a singular event there was a day it was called the day of the lord in the old testament and it was a day of judgment it was a day when god would return to the holy city and then everyone would be resurrected the righteous as well as the unrighteous unrighteous to face judgement the righteous to live life in.

"Of course after what we read today paul gets more mileage out of the macedonian success story story by shaming the carinthian church into acting so guilt and shame yeah good job paul he says the commentator carla works says perhaps the apostle is intimidating that some in the carinthian church might now be opposed to contributing to this collection after all the relationship between paul and this community has recently shown signs of strain and paul worries that the corinthians will be humiliated if some from the macedonian church come to corinth with paul and the collection is not ready he reminds the church again that they have promised participate in the collections should be a willing gift before though he resorts to shaming them directly she says that he reminds the believers that their actions to support the jerusalem poor demonstrate the earnestness of their faith paul refrains the whole collection as the gospel enacted in second corinthians eight nine paul retails the good news who lens of generosity christ gave up extraordinary riches that others might receive the abundant wealth of god's grace she says there's plenty of evidence that paul thought of the collection as more than an act that remembered the poor there were obviously surely there had to have been poor people in churches of macedonia of galatian and a k though paul seems devoted to remember the poor especially those in jerusalem this collection is more than an offering according to paul it is through israel and particularly to the majority of israel's trespass of not recognizing god's work through jesus that salve asian has come to the gentiles the gentiles are therefore indebted to israel the collection then connects these two communities and becomes an outward manifest maddest the collection then connects these two community and it becomes an outward manifestation of paul's vision that the jewish communities and the gentle communities will praise god together with one voice not be separate communities but somehow able to come together and that maybe this collection will be the beginning of that so we really do get a better understanding of what this text means you know we you read it and you're like okay so he's encouraging them but he seems to also be chastising them a little bit what in the heck is he talking about so now we know of course it's the there's the bigger context there's always the bigger context right there's always the bigger context of the church of the of the biotechs and now we see that it is the bigger context of the collection for the poor and you know bigger context and connected to it's not just the context of the versus surrounding this of the chapter surrounding what we read but there's references to other letters of paul's you really get a whole picture of paul's ministry not just what he's writing to one church but how is working with multiple churches writing to multiple churches and how that ministry all sort of works together so i think at this point let's go ahead and move on from the epistle the reading from second corinthians and look at the gospel assigned for this week we are currently reading through the gospel of mark in this election cycle and today's reading comes from the gospel of mark chapter five versus twenty one through forty three when jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side a great crowd gathered around him and he was by the sea then one of the leaders of the synagogue named gyrus came and when he saw him fell at his feet and begged him repeatedly melissa daughter is at the point of death come and lay your hands on her so that she may be made well and live so jesus went with him and a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years she had endured much under many physicians and it spent all that she had and she was no better but rather grew worse she had heard about jesus and came up behind him in the.
