"One of the ways that everybody can get back to that so now you know. We're seeing all the fans coming to the games because they were like there was some answering and stuff like that you know. And now you're you're getting those crowds and getting The hype out of the game that we that we endured so much that we wanted so much during the season so You know. I think everybody had you know had some doubts but we all knew that we had to get back going back in the in the right way to get back to some some regular living. Yeah it makes a big difference by the way just like even watching from home like seeing games with fans sitting there. Just even as. They're just panning by hearing it feeling it like even at home because i've been i've been to one game in fourteen months which is strange for my standpoint to. I'll get back there eventually. But but it changes the the entire field of a game. And i mentioned you guys feel that to talk about homecourt advantage and a hostile crowd and all this and sometimes feels very abstract but like you do feel it right like it you know. I'm sure over the course of this season as they started. Let guys back in. Did you feel the change. Does it change the way. Your body reacts. Does it change the way you you guys perform out. There as fans are now in the buildings after months of emptiness so us with the bulls. We didn't really get fans into We wanna last teams get fan so we didn't really get fans until probably like the last three or four games and those three or four games with hands were much better for me and other guys probably The the whole season because we actually have people in cheering us on. We actually had people that we can communicate with outside of your normal Security guard in arena. team Team officials and people working in random testers and stuff like that so we get to see different different faces as opposed to saying familiar faces that you see every single time that you come to the arena. So i think that was one of the better aspects of us. But you know you go to other. Cities phoenix and phoenix had a whole bunch of fans. And we were like. Oh this is crazy in the atmosphere was like like a regular game. Saying i think the same with like san antonio and stuff like that so It definitely plays a big role in an energy levels in and how we kind of look at things from a different perspective with listening to the fast china's on you get the crowd highly. Make big shots in you. Know as opposed to you make a big shot and a pop end of the fake crowd noise. You look up. There's nobody there. Nobody out jumping and down. So it's just like yeah like like you definitely want those fans because they are part of the game. There are big part of like all the different organizations. They're part of the reason why the league is with league. Is now yeah. I'm not down with the the the cardboard cutouts staple center and stuff like this is a little creepy at portland too. I think like. I would rather see the empty seats. Like if you're going to have fake annoys fine. Whatever but panning over like cardboard cutouts is just a little unnerving to me. Is crazy like So like before season we had a meeting and then they gave like these marketing plans to all the teams..

"Basketball. But they've been hampered by injuries. Will sarge going down at. The is big from them as well. So you know just seeing all the injuries unfold and seeing how these playoffs unfolding i. it's a. It's a guy for anybody to win. Now it's been it's been like this right all season thad like this has been this a compressed season. It's a cova season. it's it's no fans it's injuries and we and we don't know right like we don't know it was the quick turnaround or the schedule responsible for all these like we'll never know there's no big scientific way to prove any of that but it feels feels that way our players feeling about this as we sit here in mid june. My buddy mark stein just tweeted a little bit ago. I guess the last sports bureau says this is the most all-stars to missed at least one game in the playoffs in nba history. How do you guys players process all this and obviously you guys had a saying. This too wasn't just adam silver deciding we're going to have the season seventy two games over x. Number of days the union has has a role in this too so everybody agrees to it. But we've we've seen the consequences How how have you guys felt at about at a player level. Amanda player level You know we're being paid to play it to to go out there and play a game and to actually do and do our jobs so i think you know but i also think guys you know. wanted to give back to play so i think that's the reason why we kind of agree. Will we agree to an and we worked out to where we go out and play the seventy plus games so For us you know we're having find on we do in injuries all part again I think for the most part guys healthy but you wear down over the course of the season especially how brutal season it's like You know when you think about it like we're losing a lot of rest time in between all the different things that we have to do.

"For just a little copy. It is a flame thrower but he says on there. It's not so it's like saying go fight peacefully. It's it's the plausible deniability. I says no flame for our you know Well probably not the best idea especially if you're traveling overseas as numerous elon musk. Boring company fans have found So there is a big story on tech crunch about the legal peril that these flame thrower owners are now facing including wants here in the united states. So i wanna i wanna read. I'd love tech crunch to talk about you. Know passive aggressive like putting. This is not a flame throwing something here. This is the a couple lines from the story. The boring company okay This is what elon musk told. Joe rogan two thousand eighteen. We were told that various countries would ban shipping of it. That they They would ban. Flame throwers so to solve this. For all the customs agencies we labeled it not a flame thrower it work. was it effective as rogin. I don't know i think so. Yes must replied. The correct answer was no like they really just dropped in ron howard narrator voice there to be like just because you say it's not a flame thrower doesn't mean so in new york actually pass a law and this is what lawmakers edison elon. Musk boring company released a new flame thrower without any concern to the training of the purchasers or their reasons for buying both through even better both through this bill savage that owning and using a flame thrower is a criminal act and less it is used for agricultural construction or historical collection purposes. These dangerous devices should not be sold to civilians and they need to be restricted to train professionals. In fact a woman in new york actually got charged issues. Pulled over for like a headlight or something. They saw it sitting under the seat. She charged occasion carrying a dangerous weapon. And i even notice a law. She was charged with home with owning a quote infernal machine. What a cool charge. I do these state. My stated different. So some people like where. There's no laws. Like texas or wyoming. They're fine and this is yeah. Ok one elon. Musk van was a before before the pandemic to go partying through europe and he was on a party bus coins. You and i love the picture of the guy. The guy looks like a dude who goes to italy to go on party buses okay and he thought be fun thing to bring his flame thrower on the party bus. Because if you're on a party bus in italy you know going to raves. Or whatever he's doing it's a pretty good little conversation starter. Ended up in italian prison so his lawyer was able to get him out but he had to surrender. The flame thrower here is a. This is his quote. I love this dude okay. Fleet italian flame thrower guy. I'd love to have you on the show sometime. This is what he said. It was a hair-raising experience. I'm in the middle of nowhere in sardinia. Hey twenty. four hour lockdown with an older guy giving off mafia. Ve off is after nearly a week in prison. He was handed his belongings flame thrower side and set and set free. Is my lawyer asked the judge. Do you really want to be the guy on an international news keeping an american in jail over this toy And he said he goes. I really think that was the key to getting me out. Is this judge dot wanting he make international news for the flame thrower owning the flame. Thrower bottom line bad idea. I do think it's pretty cool. I will say this does not seem to have learned his lessons because he then conceded to tech crunch that once he gets back in the united states he made while he made his own flame thrower off instructions. He found on youtube so g not the smartest guy in the room but if you have a flame thrower very cautious of our you. Can i ask a question. Why would you want a flame thrower because it's a flame thrower i mean. That's the reason. Why wouldn't you just like you have over and you're like hey look with. This does yeah okay.

Have you ever done this before. And joe said yes. I have any asked that if he knew a boy by the name of chris steiner. Oh no that's it. He didn't know him and a year ago. Fourteen year old chris. Steiner's body had been found tangled in branches in a secluded area area of the baraboo river. His cause of death was drowning and his manner. Death was determined was ruled undetermined and i learned researching this case. There's a difference between cause of death and manner of death Cause of death is would be like drowning like water in your lungs and manner of death is. There's like four categories i think and its homicide suicide undetermined and natural causes. Okay so it was ruled. The manner of death was ruled undetermined but the cause of death was drowning. So they didn't know why he had drowned. No face or how he got. There would have happened a year. Ago is chris's parents woke up in the morning and he was missing and his screen was slashed open and there were muddy footprints in his room and also outside the house and a slider doors. That was normally locked was open was left unlocked but closed. They were suspicious about kris diner staff but they didn't have any proof they didn't know okay. Did he cut his own screen and run away. Although he was a good a good boy he wasn't a runaway. He didn't have problems like that. they just didn't have any proof so it was is basically left opened and kind of unsolved so a year later. Almost to the day that became joe's next victim fad was concerned that his captor was so freely confessing. It could only mean one thing. He was going to kill him fifteen hours into his torture. Thad her joe talking on the phone and made a mental note that there was a working phone in the house. Joe would go over the broken bones in his legs and ankles twisting and turning them hitting them stopping them jumping on them. I mean he was. He's a fucking psychopath am. He's a monster like pure evil. Yeah this is brewed all and it's also so impressive that fad had any sort of presence of mind to think try to be as and remember this phone and he was so young and going through this horrible experience. It's incredible that he could even think straight at all. Yeah he had A presence of mind and there was a psychologist that gave an interview on the episode of escaped and the psychologist said. You don't fad. Had his body taken from him and the only thing that he had in his possession was his mind and he used his mind to survive. So not only. Did this fucking nutcase joe torture thad but what he would do was he would make rudimentary casts for his legs in between the torture and then he would force that to walk on his legs.

Covid Pushes Real Estate Into the Future
"About the coming year now with a real estate professional. Joining us is Thad Wong, co founder and co CEO of at Properties, one of the nation's fastest growing real estate brokerages. That Welcome to real estate today. Thank you. Beautiful Being here. We are delighted to have you here. So fat for real estate to remain as robust as it currently is. You would have to keep the interest rates low. So what's your forecast there? Yeah, I don't think anyone is forecasting a rise in interest rates. I think chemo to the effects of the macroeconomic perspective is devastated, and I also don't seem anywhere there is the world that's really competing aggressively to, you know, develop any type of growth that would justify increasing rates, so no one's anticipated rates going up any time soon. That'll be very helpful. So if that's the case if interest rates are at three, or just below three for well qualified buyers And it continues that way through next year. Do you expect that the push of buyer demand will continue unabated for at least another year. I do think that we're going to see a pusher buyer demand and part of that is interest rate driven. Another part of that is that I didn't millennials are now at the point where they're gonna be purchased and those that have skipped The first step of purchasing entry level condo, and they're buying a midsized, larger pond or internal single family home. I think that's happening now. And I think Millennials are not going back the very small micro units and small apartments and they're moving towards homeownership. I see. You know, we've heard a lot of economists tell us that they've seen a big migration happening from the city cores out to the suburbs and beyond all the way out to the rural areas way out in the country. Do you think that will continue? And if so, What happens to the center of the cities in America? Yeah, I don't think I will continue. I think for the next couple years you're going to see people that Can work from anywhere, move out to the suburbs and people that appreciate the space. But I do think that the vaccine was distributed. I think we'll see the reemergence of the city this summer. And I also think that businesses will move back to Sydney and culture is in need of people collaborating with one another. So I think the cities will come back. Very, very seriously. Both New York Chicago are gonna come back quickly. There's nothing like the city. You know when he's sporting events are closed, and the theater's closed in the restaurants are closed and you have to social distance. You know, a lot of things in this city become less valuable. But you know, once they're open up in there, back alive, If you're on the suburbs, you don't have access to them as quickly it becomes a lonely, boring place. Unless that's what you really like. So Tuesday, dwellers there live off of the action and loved the diversity and love the energy of the city. Once it comes back, they're going to come back. They also young think, do believe the younger people want to live in the city and the big believer that those people are thinking they can work anywhere in the In the country or the world. They're gonna be coming back to officers for culture and collaboration. And I think that both New York and Chicago two years from now, a baby just under great will bust recovery. I think that we have in abundance of square footage of office space, but I do you think it will get filled back up? It might take a few years. I think that you're going to have seen migration back the city core. And to see additional office space being taken. I think your ISI continues to corporate growth, and I think that growth will be in central city's in locations. They're desirable by many. So I don't think a lot of these changes in Andy's here forever.

Now, you are sitting here again as a solo artist, take us through the last couple of years and how we got to this place in time with you releasing a new solo album. A. Question. So you know it isn't that I didn't think that I would ever put out solo music again, and when I say Solo artists like leagues was my thing like leagues was it was me creating something? To release songs that felt like they came from a band more than a person in a lot of ways it took off more than anything I'd ever done under my name I have a finished leagues album that's mixed mastered like it's completely done that at some point. Hopefully sooner than later I'll I'll release. So but you what happened is is in two thousand and sixteen some songs came to me that felt very much like you know they were coming from like a real person. They were more intimate nature and it just felt like the time was right to Make a solo album.

10 Years After Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Industry Says It's Better Prepared
"Ten years ago an explosion on the deepwater horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed eleven people and oil gushed into the Gulf for almost three months today. Offshore drilling is more regulated but has enough been done to prevent another accident. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady one of the biggest changes since the deepwater horizon accident is on the Gulf coast near Corpus Christi Texas at the Dockside Facility of marine well containment company with the wind blowing. Ceo David Nickerson shows off five capping. Stacks similar to the device that finally stopped crude flowing into the goal.

"thad" Discussed on The Down and Dirty Show
"Welcome to Rice. And now and then I'm your host deb Williams and today we have with us. Ddr Crossley ARCA DRIVER BAD MOFFITT. Thiab welcome to the show. Thank you for having me deb. Tell us about your great finish that you had in Daytona. This was your best finish of your young career with a fifth place. Finish after starting last Yes so Daytona was a bit eventful for me and my DDR Causley Gaza. We had a little trouble in first. Practice We were a little bit behind the eight ball because we had a fuel pressure gauge problem in first practice and then of course after qualifying a little bit low in the rear and so we had to start at the tail end of the field and my guys talked about it and we decided that we were GonNa go right from the start and since it was only a eighty lap race. We figured like we needed to cause much headway as we could so I started a thirty third and I think by thirty laps in we were running somewhere inside of the top ten then after that me and my teammates Haley Degan and tanner gray got on the outside and we made a bunch of headway. I think we made our way like all the way up to four or something for Dr Crosby. Bought three really really. Fast Ford fusions to the track and It just allowed us to be able to do that. And since this is your first year with Agr Crossley. How did this deal come about for you? So we were in Goodwood Festival last year over in England and taught David were there and and me and my grandpa and my father got to talking to them about possibly coming over here running a few races in the twenty twenty season and then of course it all came about around December. We decided that this was going to be the move because my family. Thanks very very highly of David and how he carries himself. He's been in the sport for a while so he has of course a lot of knowledge in the sport so We just thought very highly of him and felt like he would be the best fit for us to run our twenty twenty season with and of course you heard that Mitch and his grandfather. His grandfather is seven. Time Nascar. Champion Richard Petty. I know you get this asked a lot. But what was it like growing up is Richard? Petty's grandson your. I do get that question a lot but with with him Pam It's always just been grand. Paul you know he's he's always been there for me whether I wanted to flip burgers or drive race cars or do whatever I'd go to his house and when I was little we'd watch cartoons together and now we watch football games and hockey games and and Basketball Games most time racist together but but even away from the race track. He's always been GRANDPA. I've never known any different ever since born. He's he's been my so at the end of the day. He's just dislike everybody else's GRANDPA. He says accomplished a little bit more. Yes and your grandmother. Linda was very special as well. So we miss her tremendously. But it's it's nice to still have your granddad around the track and did he tried to talk you out of racing. Oh of course so When I when I was a I decided I wanted to race and they were all very hesitant and I never understood why. And and of course because Adam was the last petty and a car They were very very hesitant to let me drive. I was not taking no for an answer and and of course I like you know my grandma. She was sick for about four years so my mom was at the hospital with her. My Dad he was at the race track. My grandfather was at the race track with the forty three car. Finally when I was twelve or thirteen I bought my first go court and I was like all right. I'm doing this weather without y'all I'm not taking no for an answer and that's GRANDPA's like okay. If you're serious about it we're GONNA do it. We're going to do it right. He decided that he was going to get behind me and helped me a little bit and then we started winning races and then I got into Stockcar for the first time and ran like fourth. Thank Care Way and then we ended up winning winning the championship that year. A handful of racism and so we've been fairly successful thus far in our career. But I think this this year in twenty twenty with the DDR. Crossley guys is a when. I'm really going to Sean. Yeah I think so too. And of course that is the two thousand sixteen southeast limited late model champion and is he mentioned he rise to care way race today speedway but don't get in your mind now that he was born with a silver platter of racing. Step way talk. Because he's had to really work for everything so just tell us how the path was set forth for you. Yes so so when I got into it and I started racing stock cars and started getting real serious about racing. My grandfather said that if I was GONNA do it I was GonNa do it the way he did it as you know you started working on cars when he was about twelve e started working on on his dad's car now then he worked on him ever. Since with me I was sixteen. I quit going school. Public School fulltime. I started doing online school and I still ended up getting my diploma saw doing school and and working in the shop from seven to four every day over an empire that was in the shop learning as much as I could about the race car I picked up a bunch of good traits. I'll learn how to weld. I could hang a hanged bodies with with a little bit of Hell by could mount. All my seats Bama Self. I knew a little bit on the setup plate not a whole lot though but enough to to be there and be relevant so it was good for me from driver standpoint to to learn as much as I could while working in the shop and I think you helps me at the track. Tell them what I what I need out of the core and like how to adjust it. It also makes you know what it takes to repair that car to for sure Like I'd be a little bit timid drivin every now and then I mean I'd still race just as hard but if I knew that I was just knocking the bumper off just to knock it off. I wouldn't do that anymore because I knew I would have to fix it on Monday. When I got back to the shops so saw would kind of keep my bumper to myself if I had and of course knowing that and understanding that is one thing that attracted my dad. Who was a machinist to your great grandfather Louis? When he was driving because he always took care of his equipment he never ran. It is hard as he could go just until the engine blew or he crashed it and it was the way he raised. That attracted my dad to your great grandfather and in turn got our family interested in the petty family. Yeah absolutely Lee was really really good about it. And then GRANDPA was about as good about it as he could be of course he had some pretty heavy crashes and Stuff like that but when he could take care of his stuff he did one of the one of the things he told me is consistency. And that's what his dad always told him. He said if you're going to be slow be consistently slow. Don't run a fast lab in full everybody and then go back to being slow every lap. He said if you're going to be fast be consistently fast every every lap. You know He he just wants me to be consistent my laptop and I think that's something that that's helped me on the long runs I seem to always be a little stronger than far off and on the short runs and he was always stronger on the long runs to those jackrabbit starts weren't too good for him except maybe the October nineteen eighty-three Charlotte race three laps to go. But that's another story for another time you mentioned the DDR Crossley deal starting to come about when you were at the Goodwood Festival last year and believe you got to drive your grandfather's nineteen eighty-one car over there. Yes so that was. That was a surreal experience for me getting able to drive up the good hill in in my grandfather's nineteen eighty-one Buick. And that car set. A dist- away raced. It hasn't been touched. Of course it's been cranked up and moved every now and then and Kinda dish cap in shape but it's still the setup. He raced it and gained a tremendous amount of respect for him. Because whenever I was driving that thing up the hill was driving like a boat. Now is like. There's no way this man did this. At two hundred miles an hour two inches from the wall at Daytona. But sure enough. He did I mean I was driving up turning right and the car was going left and I don't know I don't know how he raised like that For so long but he seemed seemed to have it figured out and be pretty successful at it. Well that's because he just didn't know any better than half the power steering. I think in that car did they know they did. Not and about the seat. How is the seat? The seat is mounted like crooked. And I don't understand how he set like that for five hundred miles but he mounted at crooked because the G. Forces and so it would help him in the middle of the corner and so he would be pointing the way he wanted to go instead of throwing them around because back then they didn't have all the belts and harnesses. Like we have now you. You could move around a little bit in the car. And so he would go ahead and mount his seat crooked so that he would know in the middle of the corner that he could steal To get to the gas for break whatever you needed to another thing he does is. He holds a steering wheel a little differently instead of like a ten and two. He's almost like twelve and three on the steering wheel so he can add more input in the center of the corner when he needs to. If the car's tight so now that was one of the first things he had me changed away. I hold the steering wheel in the car when he was to track with me now. It's it's helped me a little bit so far especially when I have a tight car may have a loose car. I go back to the normal ten too. But he's definitely gave me some small pointers like that to help me throughout their careers for. That's interesting and right. Now you're listed as doing a partial schedule for Arca this year. So what type of races are you looking at? So we're going to run the first eleven races as of right now and We're talking to multiple sponsors about running the last non Some of the big ones like Bristol and Memphis. Machen trying to get to some of those towards the end of the season we're talking about but we had eleven races sold coming into the year. So we've kind of moved those eleven races towards the front half of the year. Now we're GONNA try and sell the second half as quick as we and try and be able to run a full campaign and that would be wonderful for you to be able to do that. What tracks will you be going to for the first time? So this weekend at Phoenix will be the first time I've ever been to Phoenix. Mid Ohio is another one that I'll be going to for the first time if we get to Memphis Memphis and Bristol will both be first time ones for me but I have ran at Talladega and Charlotte Salem. They're all on the list on the dirt races. I've never ran before. But they seem like a whole lot of fun and I'd love to be able to draw one of them. I was GONNA say that would be fun to be able to now. There's where Your Dad? Your granddad could really give you some pointers. Oh Yeah Dr Band. Yes all went to Ray said Greenville. Pickens a few years ago and I was talking about it and he was talking to me about it and he said this show in there and pitch it sideways and said what and he said. Last time I raised there it was it was but it hasn't been dirt for a while but that would have been right before. Rj Reynolds came in and created the modern era so to speak in nineteen seventy two and. Then it's been paved I think ever since then. How are you preparing for your road races? So I have been DABAN. Durant school out in Phoenix. Few Times Chris. Cook is another big factor. He I've been to him a handful of times and he's helped me a whole lot of working on my shifting and stuff and then we're going to try and do some emphasis stuff that we're going to.

A Second Brexit Vote Could Worsen the Chaos Created by the First
"That we should also put no deal leave without a deal on the ballot paper. And so I think we will end up in that place because ultimately the British people need to have a final say they've seen the mess. This created all they show they will to do that. And of course, I will be campaigning hard for us to remain in the European Union. Now, look let me be clear about this not in the status quo the European Union to needs reform. Britain's should be there leading that there are issues in in in Europe about spending, and mommy, and how money is spent there are issues around free movement of people across Europe. Of course, these are issues that Britain can. Lead on. But it's an economic interest to remain in the European Union. The the only thing I can say for certain to you is that I do think that the clock ticking to the twenty ninth of may will not continue, and we will see the end date extended. So obstacle fifty the the the accident comes down that makes us leave your opinion. I suspect we'll get extended through to the summit. That's good. And that will give us more time to argue into fights. But I hope to legislate and create circumstances for a second referendum on whatever deal emerges from UK. Parliament, David we know it's late over there. So desk, you one last question you may have noticed that our government over here in the US is currently shutdown. You guys aren't shooting yourself as directly in the face as we are. But I imagine that the effort to deal with Brexit to manage than Goshi ations with the EU as it's been all. Suming? Can you talk about some of the things that aren't getting done some of the opportunity costs of like having to focus on Justice for two plus years? The key. Connecting thread, hit is the big question is is the Anglo American world in crisis is populism particularly on the right of the spectrum creating an atmosphere. That's toxic where there's a lot of blocks or about immigrants about building walls about shutting people out. But actually, the really she's of the day. How do we deal with automation in our economy? How do we give people jobs where jobs are no longer? How do we educate people in fix our education systems fairly with equity across across our countries. How do we deal with healthcare, and the fact that we're living longer? An and you know, we need to continue to find cures for diseases and give people access to primary healthcare. These issues. All the central issues of all time. And of course, alone site that there are still groups and on society that are discriminated against the funding sells the back of the queue. How do we address those issues with equity those of essential issues that not getting discussed, and actually I think also social media seems to be driving out further and further division, and who is gaining whilst this happens in the Anglo American world. Well, there are certain individuals in the global arena people right flat him at PT in that gaining tremendously and some suggest are behind some of the dischord in our country. And it would seem have co conspirators with them aiding and abetting this because they're making money on the side. That's the central issue. It's happening in the UK. What I would say to friends in America is Lee. East Americans are having the debates about who's pulling the strings here in the UK when not having an honest discussion about how referenda in twenty sixteen was affected who was involved who was engaged wears on. Mula inquiry looking into these issues in the United Kingdom, I'm afraid we've got some real problems, but we've got to work globally progressives to what's gather to to to to to to deal with this and face it down has to be faced down just as it was frankly in the early part of the twentieth century. Well, look, David, we really appreciate this. And I think we may need to hear for your Ken. But I will say that, you know, you're not I've talked about this and some of those people who've made common cause of Putin are in both of our countries. Notably Donald Trump and Nigel Farraj, and and I would add Boris Johnson Thad list. But those people who are looking. In for a forceful progressive voices. Should definitely check out. David who's really emerges, a leader in the labor party in pushing for a second referendum. I think I'll say David, you know, has moved the labor party more forcefully in that direction. Anyone looking for a real concise, yet robust enunciation of Theresa May's Brexit deals at checkout, the speech that David gave in parliament and opposition to that deal. So again glad we could continues confident about both Brexit, and what you just touched upon which is a need for kind of progresses to come together across borders, frankly to push back on some of these right wing, national trends, and yeah, d- we'll have you on call probably David as as Brexit drama continues. Very kind of you look at I was simply trying to replicate. Some of the best of you'll speech. That you wrote for the great badge. So I I really ordered that you set that. And of course, I'm very pleased to speak to you guys
