"Past relationships. I think one thing that's really important is this idea about how much my fate is sort of determined or locked. You know, my family has a history of mental illness. I'm doomed. I must have bad genes. I had a really difficult childhood. I'm never going to be happy. I'm never going to have connections with others. So these are really important and meaningful questions to people. And our own work shows that if you grew up in a home, so these kids that grew up in the 30s, if they came from a home in which their parents were present, kind, nurturing, warm, consistent. They have a better life. And that life has been that much better than other people, but there's an advantage to having those kinds of conditions growing up. But it's not fate. There are plenty of people that grew up without them that turn the corner often because of connections they have with other people outside their family and often because they meet so and that's important in their life that allows them. In some ways to almost have a corrective experience and to grow relationship skills and trust in a way that expands their life. So one very important message in the study and in the book. And we illustrate in the book with stories with a number of people that it's really never too late. They changed their lives around. People in their 60s and 70s turn their lives around and really important ways. There's a gentleman in the book that we profile who lived one of the most isolated lives in all our participants. He lived in the west and Montana. He had some challenges growing up. He was also in a marriage that wasn't fulfilling him. When he asked him if he had friends, he would report simply on his questionnaire, either a zero or no. And the only thing in life that really gave him a sense of happiness and joy was his work, which he had to stop and his late 60s because of some physical challenges that he had. He did very meticulous work with clocks and watches, and he couldn't do that work as he aged. One of the things he did was he joined a gym and he started going to the gym regularly and he figured out it was fascinating to listen to him, tell a story. He figured out that the same people were there when he went every morning at the gym. And even though they were at much like him, many of the people of the gym were younger than him, he appreciated it first to sing familiar faces because he was so isolated. And over time, he started to share with those people of the gym, some of his interests. And one of those was an interest in old movies. And the young people of the gym thought this was cool, and interesting. And he would invite them over to screen movies at his home. And he developed friendships. So in his 70s, when we had the next interview with him, we asked him again about his friendships and he said, yes,

Germany's Scholz to unveil Ukraine tank plan to parliament
"Chancellor Olaf schulz is expected to announce his government will approve supplying German made battle tanks to Ukraine. The long awaited decision comes after U.S. officials said on Tuesday that a preliminary agreement has been struck for the U.S. to send M1 Abrams tanks to help keep pushback Russian forces entrenched in east Ukraine. Schultz had insisted that any move to provide Ukraine with powerful leopard two tanks would need to be closely coordinated with Germany's allies chiefly Washington. By getting the Biden administration to commit some of its own tax, Berlin hopes to spread the risk of any backlash from Russia. I'm Charles De Ledesma.

And the second thing on September 1st, I'm running a workshop at customer experience maturity workshop with cognitive and we're going to be walking through how you can develop your customer experience maturity.

So with that, a timely topic and a relevant topic to that workshop is the art of scaling and the science of developing maturity in this space, which you've been doing quite a lot of Meredith since you've started up that live person. When did you start there? Yeah, yeah, let's see. It was November 2020. So right in the height of a pandemic and everyone dealing with all kinds of new problems and it has been quite the whirlwind exciting moving very quickly as our team grows and we get more customers and this industry expands. So yeah, it's been super fun to kind of ride that wave and be a part of everything that's happening in the space. As a recent yeah, nothing like being thrown in the deep end. I'm getting used to that. I have been in a bunch of startups prior to this. So the team that I've been is actually sort of a startup within the company. So it's a good mix of big company, but we've got a small team that's been growing. And it's been really fun to scale alongside as we grow customer base. Nice, nice. That sounds good. So were you doing conversation design before that? Yeah, yeah, so how I got into it. It's been, let's see. 2016 was my pivot year. Before that was in marketing, specifically mobile marketing. And so in 2016, I said, I got to go freelance, my coworkers and my job, where I was at a mobile startup, they always heard me talking about conversation design and conversational commerce and I basically wouldn't shut up about it. So I eventually said, okay, I got to get into this early job. I became a freelancer and consultant and started specifically targeting companies in the AI space and would help them with both the marketing side and then also just start working on conversational experiences. So I slowly kind of built up the different customers of an experiences, a lot of B2B, a little bit in B2C, did a few SMS spots, slack butts, then I found one company that I ended up spending more of my time with and then went full time. And so we did bots there as well. And I worked on the conversational experience there. So that was more on enterprise B2B space. And I knew I wanted to get back into B2C. So when I saw live person had been following them for a while, it was super excited about this position in the managed service managed services or professional services team. So yeah, I took that one and November 2020 and started with a few designers and we've since been adding to the team and adding on different roles. Building out a design system. So yeah, lots of things needed to happen quickly to be able to move fast and launch for various brands. Interesting. So live person, historically, was more of a BPO, wasn't it? Did you go back far enough? Good business process. Was it always a conversational AI kind of automation company? Or was it more of a process outsourcing company originally? So it actually started, it's been around 25 years. Our founders still CEO, Robert casio, and it started being the actual live person in the corner of your website. So the live chat window. So they've been doing that for a long time. And then got into AI. Built out the conversational cloud platform that we use today. Several years back, leveraging all of that knowledge and transcripts and customer conversations in the web. Doing the live web chat. So it took that and then built out a full customer engagement platform. Still doing contact center management in agent workspace. But now we've added on AI, tons of different customer engagement capabilities to basically create all of these one to one conversations on all the different messaging channels. So we can pretty quickly get an automated experience out on all those major channels, so SMS, Apple messages for business, Google business messages, WhatsApp, messenger, all of the messaging channels. And then we added on voice more recently. So going more into the voice space and doing some things like IVR deflection, to SMS, voice analytics. So yeah, really covering that full breadth of customer journey on conversational use cases. How is the kind of adoption of those kind of like Apple business messaging, Google my business? Those kind of like more, I would say fringe channels. I mean, most people when they start, or sell into chatbots, we're going to do something on a website, going to put something in our app, WhatsApp, quite popular, well kind of traverse channel. And we had decathlon on the shore while back, Charles, goth from decathlon. And they were doing pretty decent stuff on Google my business. But it's not something that you hear that many people doing, and not many people you hear on their apple or business messaging channel either. I wonder if you can shed a bit of light on from your experience. What's the adoption being like on those kind of

"Is the 10% happier podcast. I'm Dan Harris. Hey gang, I've always been really intrigued by the Buddhist notion of the 8 worldly winds they include praise and blame success and failure joy and sorrow and most relevant for this conversation gain and loss. The idea is that if we learn to relate to these various two sided coins as being like the wind or part of nature, we can develop more equanimity Vis-à-vis life's inevitable ups and downs. Vexations and vicissitudes, the full catastrophe. Today we're going to talk specifically about the unstoppable flow of gain and loss. The upside and downside of impermanence and how to deal with this process more effectively. My guest is not actually a Dharma teacher, but instead a Pulitzer Prize winning writer who I've actually been a fan of for a very long time. She really is, in my opinion, one of the best writers drawing breath on the planet currently. So it was very cool to meet her. Catherine Schultz is a staff writer at The New Yorker who has a new book called lost and found a memoir, which is really about her processing a huge loss in her personal life, and then a huge gain, and then also musing in a very compelling way about how to live in a world where this happiness and pain inevitably commingle. In other words, how to live with contradiction. In this conversation, we talk about how humans experience grief, a gift that you can give to anybody who's grieving. Why she loves the cliches that remind us to enjoy the moment, even though they are cliches, her broad understanding of the term loss a category that a she points out can include both loved ones and your car keys, how the key word in lost and found is and why she says life is a perpetual and machine and we also talk about some of the insights she has gained from being in a long-term romantic relationship specifically what she has learned about compromise. Also, just to say this is the first episode of a true part of this week on the subject of loss. On Wednesday, we're going to talk to a scientist and practicing Buddhist who's been studying what grief does to your brain. And I should also say that the two parter this week is part of a four week series. We're doing on the show that we're calling the mental health reboot. It's the longest and most ambitious series we've ever done on the show. Each week on Monday, we bring you a series of brand new interviews with mental health memoirists who have personal stories on everything from sleep to shame to grief to trauma. And then on Wednesdays, we bring on a top notch scientist to help you contextualize the story you've just heard and to provide some evidence based advice. And the last thing before we get started, if you find yourself wanting to put hope to work in your own life, then make sure to check out our meditations from some of our finest teachers about how to cultivate hope.

Well, I suppose if you read all these different versions, then you find that the original somewhere in between or in a combination of them all. Yeah, and as a reader, you are always like deciding not exactly which version you prefer, but you're deciding what short story you read, you know? And I think this way you can get to multiple version of one story. Right. And as we've already discussed this story has multiple meanings. Multiple possible reading. Yeah. I mean, it's interesting because we've talked about seeing it as a metaphor for death or a metaphor for being a writer and a metaphor for a return to childhood, but the title of the story is loneliness. Yes, yes. Which is none of those three things. Is this also a portrait of loneliness? Yes, I think it tastes about loneliness. But it makes it hard to just stay with the word loneliness, you know, because of everything we've been talking about. Well, perhaps being a writer is a lonely thing. Yeah, I mean, sometimes I feel that, but it's a romantic way of putting it in at the same time. I always like this loneliness, company situation. You write alone, you read alone, but you share that. This is the only thing I could advise to other writers. Share that. Share your writing. You write in your room and maybe you feel that the world is against you. When you write maybe you think so, but then you share it with a friend and you start talking about it. And nowadays, being alone is something people don't like at all. People are always against loneliness. Against solitude..

And those were the days I remembered this short story. And this story is full of, as you say, tenderness, but also contradiction. Yeah. Even from the very beginning, you know, he thinks he found himself in this room on a bright watery white, moonless night. Well, how can the night be bright if it's moving? Each image seems to have a contradiction within it. And perhaps that's playful. I mean, when you reread truths, you don't have the sense that you already know what he's going to talk about. Each sentence has something weird and as you just said, you know, that's like a mistake, you know, it's like a teacher would say like this is a contradiction. You have to fix. At the same time, there is something about translated littered to her. I've been trying to think about reading and loving writers that wrote in languages you don't know a word, you know, like polish to me or I don't know German and when you speak Spanish, you have a sense of three or four languages, even if you don't know them. You can hear Portuguese and Italian French. But the Polish are now I don't know a word of it. And at the same time, you deal with different and I think there are like four or 5 translations of raw materials work into Spanish. So you never have the original, you know? And there is something really beautiful about that. The Spanish translations are really different when one another. Do you have a favorite?

You know, it's about amazes means that I think we're not sure it is always trying to go beyond the present and he manages to relate to the sacred to myth to something bigger than us and at the same time there is this painful feeling the whole time. I feel so in that first section, we're set up to believe that the speaker is dead, right? We have him in a dead room. He refers to himself as immortal and posthumous. Yes. Do you get the sense that he's sort of a ghost who's stuck in his childhood nursery? Yeah, I mean, a friend of mine told me this guy is dead, you know? This guy's dead. And I think it is more complex than that. He is stuck in childhood. And well, I know you know that many stories of Bruno two are related to the father. And here are the father is not around. But he's confined in the nursery. And he's dealing with childhood as a dead and becoming to live. I don't know how to say it, sorry. But it's like coming alive again. Coming alive and dying at the same time and it's really hard to describe Bruno chords work. Maybe he is there. And maybe writing is something beautiful and maybe writing is something terrible. And you are stuck. There. So perhaps this is about trying to write about your childhood trying to go back to your childhood nursery and write about it. And instead, just not being able to catch sight of yourself there, not being able to re discover what it was that you want to write about. You have that bird's eye view, but there's nothing but dead flies. Yeah. Many flies die. Yeah, I love that raving. I mean, somehow I feel something similar with jewels. As with my son, you know, because I have a four year old and he breathes new life into language every day and maybe I'm not entirely sure of the meaning, but I can be a surprised and delight with experience. The whole day, you know, so there's something related to real learning how to talk to, I think, or discovering communication. In a way, I think that's why I was amazed for this story lately. I mean, I was in this moment where we all are dealing with language, like for the first time, I think that sensation that words are infected. I don't know, I remember this days in the beginning of the pandemic, where you feel like language was dead or was like very alive, but was laughing at us. And I remember those days where you I tried to avoid words related to time and space, you know, which are not. So I was like, this trusting and at the same time, I keep was there discovering language. And it was so beautiful.

And are there many, many possible metaphorical levels? I think he's a man thinking about childhood. And dealing with it and trying to go beyond the present and trying to show himself and discovering that he doesn't know who he is. And obviously this is something you always do when you think about childhood trying to get a different sense of time and remembering what you don't really remember. I think all this, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know. I can not explain the short stories full of that and I think that's a way of being in a way honest.

He does say he's walled in. He can't get out. But he offers a way out, which is by imagining a door. By writing this story, I think, in a way. Yeah, the story is his door. I suppose. But it takes strength to suggest that there's a door. Yes..

I am ashamed to admit it. I never look at myself full face. Somewhat deeper, somewhat farther away. I stand inside the mirror a little off center, slyly in profile. Thoughtful and glancing sideways. Our looks have stopped meeting. When I move my reflection moves to but have turned away as if it did not know about me as if it had got behind a number of mirrors and could not come back. My heart bleeds when I said so distant and indifferent. It is you. I want to exclaim. You have always been my faithful reflection. Do you have accompanied me for so many years? And now you don't recognize me. Oh, my God. I'm familiar and look into one side. My reflection stands there and seems to be listening for something I work from the mirror depths obedient to someone else waiting for orders from another place. Mostly I sit at the table and turn the pages of my yellow university notes. My only reading I look at the sandwich curtain stay with dust waving slightly in the cold breeze from the window. I could do exercises on the courting rod. An excellent bar..

"Oh, yes, it was a long time ago, I think it was 1998. I was 23 or something. And I was in this secondhand bookster in downtown Santiago and came across sanatorium under the sign of the hourglass. And I remember I had heard of tools. I mean, I had heard him referenced as a great writer. But to be honest, the reason I picked up book up was the beautiful sound of the Spanish word on the title. I think the world also exists in English, but it was translated using the word hourglass. But clip Cedar sounded so beautiful and that's the reason I picked up the book. I think I had a look at turn up dykes forward that Spanish translation included. And I read that story standing up, I think I chose it because it was the shortest. And that was it and I'm not sure I loved it immediately. It was more like true love. I love that. Also deals with this perplexity. By then I was more a reader of poetry and I was into classics. I was a big fan of Kafka. I still love Kafka. And this was different, although he is always compared to Kafka. This was different. It was in a way darker and brunettes has this weird sense of humor or this tenderness and at the same time he's writing is very complex. It was something totally unique. That is still what I feel when I really. It's a really unique writer. At the time when you were reading that book, did you know the story of his life? I mean, I'm not sure. I think I didn't. I had the idea of what a great writer. He was, but I didn't know about his painful death. Very little, I think I knew very little about him. Later, I read him like ten years later. I read this beautiful addition of all his work and Spanish edition and I loved him or real love yeah. Yeah, I'm in the tragedy of his life for us is that he only had time to write and publish two books before he was killed by the Gestapo. In 1942, and the story you're reading today loneliness was first published in English in The New Yorker in 1977, but of course it was written. Long before that and included in that second story collection, the one that you picked up sanatorium under the sign of the hourglass in 1937, which is 5 years before he died. Do you feel that the story has aged well? Do you feel that it's specific to the time in which he was writing? I mean, I wouldn't say this is his best story, but is the one I love the most, you know? Maybe because of that first encounter. And also I have to say that I chose it now because, well, because I'm a number of reasons matter, it is a story about confinement. So I came across this story again, I think like two months into pandemic and I've been thinking about this story a lot now. I mean, it's really dark story, I think. So it works for me more like poetry in a way. The density of it. It's a story about perhaps about someone who's locked in a room, but it could be about so many other things..

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Says He's Considering A Presidential Run
"Four Starbucks. You'll Howard Schultz the first big business heavyweight to consider jumping into the twenty twenty election. So we've got a new segment for you. And we're calling this the fast take where the traders weighing on some of the biggest news of the day. So let's take a listen to what said about his potential presidential run last night on CBS, sixty minutes. I am seriously thinking of running for president I will run as a centrist independent outside of the two party system or living at a most fragile time. Not only the fact that this president is not qualified to be the president. But the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what's necessary on behalf of the American people and argon gauged every single day in revenge politics. So should Howard Schultz? Go from the Starbucks corner office to the White House Oval office, and the reaction so far is very interesting because there seems to be some backlash on both sides of the aisle. We'll my backlashes the independence of it. That's terrible. I think that is just a terrible dynamic that really potentially be counterproductive. Right. I think that he needs to run. He is democrat. I think he needs to run as democrat. Otherwise, if he really doesn't want Trump to be president. I think that this could enable him to become president leading that Trump terrible. If you want Democrats win, it's fantastic. If you want President Trump to be reelected, and if you look at President Trump, President Trump's tweet today, basically daring our to get into. That's he's bathing him to come in. Not smart enough doesn't have the guts those types of thing. It would be it would be a windfall for President Trump. If Mr Schulz ran is. Independent. If I am a shareholder. Should I be concerned shall be concerned that there could be cots from both Republicans and Democrats, and should I be worried that perhaps Howard Schultz could sell some of his stock during this presidential run. It'd be less worried about the capital markets dynamics. I'd be very concerned about a sense that the company's going to do things that are politically correct or politically expedient at the expensive earnings. And there's, you know, Starbucks said plenty of opportunities to digest this posture for the last two years. This is no surprise to anybody that our show was doing this. So as a Starbucks shareholder remains long through what's been very good run. I I'm not too worried about it. I don't think they'll be political though. I just think it's a backlash among their customers now. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What about here selling his stock either put it in? Question in terms of you know, boycotts will do any real damage though. Rarely do boycotts ever get that long in the tooth in ever really have a resounding effect on the stocks. So I don't think that's the major issue. I think carrying is. It has the biggest issue you wanted to run as a democrat.

They all said did extremely badly their vote share shrank by eleven percentage points, but they actually scraped through which meant that they were able to stay in power and renew their coalition with the greens. And not even after bring in any coalition party. He's so actually the result was nowhere near as bad as some people had been expecting. I mean, there had been even suggestions that the government might have been voted out of office in that direction. It didn't happen. Now if that eventuality had happened everybody was expecting that Michael would step down. But the fact that the CPU clung to power meant. Indeed, I wrote myself it looked like she dodged the bullet despite that she decided to stand down. And that was the thing that surprised everybody that she squeaked through and Ponzi and squeak through and still she decided to stand down. And yet she's also said she intends or light to stay on as chancellor until twenty twenty one. But at the same time, there's now a contest onto lead the CD you so is her position tenable d think and who's emerging as the front runner for the CD you. Well, everything depends on who is elected party leader. Because there are three candidates who've declared one of them is Michael's anointed to add RS, rather undergrad. Cramped Cowan Bauer who's the current secretary general of the you now she is very much Marcle clone. She's very loyal to the chancellor, and she generally has a similar kind of agenda to her. She's very popular in the party. And she is odds on favor of the moment to win. But there are two others who declared Jens bond, the health minister and free with mounts who is a former head of the parliamentary group, and he is a real ideological industry of Michael's and spun this to now if either spun or Mets win, then all bets are off no one really expense medical to be able to survive as chancellor till two thousand twenty one till the next elections. If either Mansell spun our elected posse leader, it would just be completely impossible combination. She would understand that as well. And there's no way that she would persist in trying to cling onto the job of chancellor if one of. Ideological rivals gets the party leadership say ideological rivals. What are the key splits? Welsh fawn for example, walls, her most ferocious critic during the whole refugee crisis. He really was very outspoken against her sort of liberal policy of keeping Germany's borders open during the crisis, which led to an influx of more than a million migrants as we know mainly from the Middle Eastern North Africa. He's been very very critical of that. He's very very hard line on the fact that these people now have to integrate, and if they don't then they should be kicked out. He's sort of taking a very hotline. So almost like AFDC line alternates of Germany, this all the sort of anti immigration line. Although I must say since he became a minister became health minister in March. He's hot down a bit Matt's. Also, he was always very strongly opposed to Merckel and the way she essentially pushed the party to the left or to the the centre-left of German politics bay. Basically, he represents disgruntled older generation in although he's not so old himself. But he'd represents that sort of group of conservatives women the who have resented the way Mackel has tried to modernize the party. They wanted to return to its conservative roots? Now, Ben, obviously one of the characteristics of the Merckel era is that Germany's become more and more. Evidently, the dominant force inside the European Union. So the rest of Europe will be watching this with considerable interest and perhaps some nervousness. Yes. I mean, once again, European is a sort of bystanders to German domestic politics, which is becoming all too familiar. Pose for the last several years through the eurozone crisis. Of course, you could remember moments of critical decision making that depended on voices and debates like in the Bundestag in Berlin. I'm sure leaders across the continental watching incredibly closely to see what comes out of the CD you leadership contest. And then the stability of the government. If mocal really wants to stay till twenty twenty one it's quite likely that will have lots more instability, particularly within the grand coalition from the SPD. So this may well be a German government that does very little the next three years, which will be bad news for your how bad though, I mean, can you actually cope with a period of stasis where nothing much happens? Yes. It could I suppose I've just been in Paris. And I think there's a very strong French view, for example, that this is actually quite a benign period of relative economic growth. And actually, this is the time precisely the time to fix problems, particularly in the yours in for the next crisis, which may not be not far away. And I suppose the other big threat. Of course, he's the populist insurgency, which is really gaining traction across the continent. And I think certainly the view in Paris is that Europe can't afford to just sit there and do nothing has to move, and it has to respond to try and galvanize citizens behind sort of more pro European position and to try and sort of quell this. Insurgency? But I guess the reality is isn't a guy that even under the pretty pro-european. Centrist, Mrs Merkel, the German government had been pretty disappointing as far as the French concerned in responding to some of these more ambitious plans for European integration. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, I think one of the big surprises in a way has been the performance of Schultz. The finance minister here when the coalition treaty was hammered out between the city and the PD in February March that was a very strong European chat to that. Which was basically written by the Fulmer SPD leader Martin Schulz who was himself a former president of the European parliament. It was incredibly strongly pro European very idealistic really sort of buying into the whole macro Mian vision of reform and what's happened since. Then obviously, it was Martin Schulz was kicked out and the currently does, AVI. SP a Turkey not interested in European. Reform more yours and reform all of Schultz's just down to be sort of pale imitation of Wolfgang showing blah in fact, lacking showing blows vision of European integration. So he's been a big disappointment for those who are really hoping that the new German Grand coalition would respond to microns of reform proposals in a positive way. So if anything I suspect, then Ben a new Germany would become actually more introverted because the best you could hope for its continuity from European point of view with a look alike, but if it were spun type figure, you would have a headset used what nationalistic, but a more conservative, more, Germany. I approach I think that's probably right. I mean angular mogul has been chancellor for thirteen years. She's a set at Europe's top table for that long. And even though she has a self been incredibly cautious and conservative in the way that she's handled a lot of European questions. She does have a very strong kind of European. Instinct and sensibility, which perhaps successes won't have to agree that possibly the next chancellor is going to be less pro European than angular Merckel. I suppose the thing that we have to remember though, is that they're not going to be that Euro-sceptic Germany is still a pro European country. It's still very much in Germany's national interests to want to strong Europe. And I don't see us Manipur from the far, right? Fringe with the rise of alternative for Deutschland. Which by the way, looks like it might be plateauing anyway in public support. I don't see a huge shift to the right on the big European question in Germany, and I guess the irony is that even if Germany is losing some of its traditional europhilia, it's never been more powerful in Europe and more central to what's happening inside the and that will only be essentially with Brexit. Oh, that's certainly true, especially with Italy locked in a showdown with Brussels and other Member States and intentions with the east Spain, which seems to. To be fairly politically weak and Britain. Obviously leaving the big question is whether Emmanuel Macron can recover popularity in France, and whether he can bring his reforms to bear to convince Germany and convince public opinion on political opinion in Germany that reform is for real. And therefore, you know, Germany should take his ideas for your zone reform, for example, more seriously and finally guy I mean, maybe it's a little bit too soon to be writing the victories for the mobile era. But what do you think she will be remembered for him and she's been in power long time? I think essentially she'll be remembered for many things I mean, it's interesting when people sort of looked back they look at the great chance of Germany's postwar history people like Konrad Adenauer who really anchored Germany in the western lines helmet Kohl who achieved German reunification, and it's interesting. You know, she's been chancellor for thirteen years. And when you ask people, so what is she going to be remembered for people? Struggled to come up with announcer. And the funny thing is that a lot of people think it and Haman Han than say, the refugee crisis and actually that in a way might be a lasting legacy. I mean, I think she would resent that because it wasn't a hit finest hour. But I think in many ways the fact that she stood up for the idea of open borders for the idea of humanitarianism and for the liberal world order in a way in her response to that crisis. I think that says a lot about her. And I think also says a lot about how she changed Germany because I think that approach would never have happened before she had become chancellor, the German response to the refugee crisis. Will I think be remembered in decades to come as an extraordinary moment in recent European history and Harada was absolutely critical.
