Eventually the human menu shifted from salt rich game two serials. Like when crop started growing ray and some more salt was needed to supplement the diet when humans started eating more cereals. Okay so but cereals that you hate right. The modern day cereal grains barley right. Yeah those are considered cereals in times. Yes yeah i'm still. Yeah not not cereal boxes. Not fruit loops. Now that's when everything went downhill. The demise mandy but the underground the underground deposits started to become further away from the settlements and scarcity kept the mineral precious so as civilization spread. Salt became one of the world's principal trading commodities routes to the salt reservoirs. And i'm like showing you reservoir picture if you will of a slot reservoir leading to that reservoir. These routes crossed and trade centers crisscrossed the globe. One of the most traveled lead from morocco south across the sahara and timbuktu just a super famous spot to gather.

Race Recap: Running in the Italian Alps
"So trevor. I know people are excited to hear about how your sky marathon went in italy. So tell us what made you want to sign up for this event. When i posted some photos on instagram people were asking. Where's the race recap will here. It is so. I went and did the sued t- role sky marathon in italy. Big thanks to angie. For watching the kids while i went over that we're not always able to travel marathons together these days but i was able to get away for a trip to europe was not to like about that for two whole weeks. Yeah kind of squeezing. A lot actually flew into venice and then stayed there couple of days. Amazing place rented a car and drove up to northern italy. In the trentino alto. A dodgy region of italy up against the alps. It's predominantly german. Speaking actually because east to belong to austria until after world war one so in german suty role which means south t. role because it was part of the tea role region in austria. So it was cool to practice german while i was over there and Of course run a beautiful marathon in a beautiful place so the race took place on august. Twenty eighth it was my eighteenth. Marathon to date is my third marathon in the alps and it was definitely the most challenging. We climbed a of twenty eight hundred meters or over nine thousand feet It was just a constant climb up and down mostly up the race also has a sixty nine k one hundred twenty one k which they didn't have this year for i don't know why they also have a half a trail half but with all the events combined they call it. The most extreme experience in the alps. Wow that saying something. I know especially because i can think of some pretty extreme experiences exactly so tell us about the day. You know the days leading up to the marathon. How you're feeling and what kind of preparations that you had to have going into the race will. My training was tough. Because we don't live elevation so i tried to get as much trail time as i could in just going up and down trail. I think that might have helped my leg

"We have brought you here on the verge of trip to the mountains because the telluride film festival is almost upon us which is really exciting. We are releasing this episode as the telluride lineup is finally announced It's kept secret every year. We finally get to talk about it. And what you guys. And richard are expecting to see up in the mountains. The venice film festival as you listen to this is already underway. There are beautiful people on boats Festival season is happening for real again. you know in slightly altered ways but it's happening after tyrod cancelled last year so really excited talk about telluride in venice and festival. Season ahead But i we do have a new movie that we want to talk about. I which is worth which is premiering on net flicks this week. So we'll talk about worth talk about festivals and have a lot of movies for you guys to all watch Let's get to worth. I because richard you reviewed this at sundance twenty twenty which. I'm not sure if your memory goes back that far but you did write a review of its on behalf dot com. You can read it right. Yes it's up. It's something of a rave I was really into that movie when i saw it. Yeah so you had you had sought. Then it got picked up by net flicks. Either i think right during the festival right after and then basically felt the face of the earth for a really long time. Nevarez releasing it. This friday Time someone to the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven which is coming right up And i finally got the chance to watch it after. You've been reading about for so long joanna I know you really eager to see it as well. And i think you know having talk to you about it. Richard and david a fan too. I think the question for all of us was like why does it feel like this movie. Coming on netflix. That barely exists. Because it's great. It's a great movie. Yeah and when it premiered at sundance it didn't get enough of the raves at needed and it didn't sell and it just kind of languished for a while before netflix snapped it up and now we're releasing it either appropriately or maybe a little cynically time to the twentieth anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks but that release schedule means that it kind of going to get buried again. I think which is a shame because there's so much there to like The subject matter is difficult But it's supposed to be and the performances are top to bottom some of the best that each actor has done at least in recent memory from michael keaton stanley tucci to laura banana who the latter two two team. Bananas should absolutely be in supporting actor conversations this year and yet. I don't think they will be david. You had seen worth. I don't know if it was but you kind of a long standing fan of it as well right. Yeah i saw it at sundance. And i remember coming out of that screening and expecting it to be one of the big breakouts. The movie we'd be talking about for twenty twenty award season of course other they would not things happened after that sentence feel that a lot of big oscar contenders including minority and promising. Young woman. I think it was a real victim in many ways of the pandemic and a movie like that. Not really having any place to go. Since i think kind of traditional specialty theatrical distribution would have made sense for it and then there wasn't Twenty twenty really. And i think netflix releasing it. When they are. I completely agree with it. There's an element of it feels appropriate. But there's also an element that feels quite cynical to me and more broadly. I just feel like this movie does deserve a bit more of a push than there. Evidently giving it and michael. Keaton to me would have been pretty clearly in the best actor. Conversation addition disappointing performances. Also loved amy ryan and the movie so it just i hope people check it out and i hope it does get more of a life than maybe not lexus. Expecting at this point for me. I couldn't not think of spotlight while watching this. Got michael keaton doing boston accent. You've got him and stanley both. It's a really kind of similar. Like procedural somber story about people in business casualwear in office But with a lot of heft to a lot of like you know really deep emotions buried under all of these logistics and numbers and just i k-. I can't really fathom why. Netflix isn't willing to treat it like a spotlight like something that deserves that level of attention. Well it's really tough because the double tragedy of this is the the long road that this film had in the first place to even say it's twenty twenty. Which is that. it was like a two thousand eight. I think blacklist script that max bornstein wrote. And then max boise. Went on to make all these godzilla movies. And then he took his guts zillah. Money and like made his blacklist lake script finally which is based off of and. I don't think we've seen exactly what this is about. But it's based off of ken feinberg book about. Who was a person who was put in charge of. I don't know i'm gonna use this word correctly adjudicating Allotting the the nine eleven fund survivors and figuring out how to compensates family members of those who lost their lives on nine. Eleven and the word worth has to do with this idea of calculating. What is the worth of a loss human life. And that's you know so it's like really heavy material and it's i. I watched it at my desk. Which i'm not thrilled that that's how i watched it but i watched it at my desk. Yesterday i cried on my keyboard several times but i was also like this is a movie. I really wish. I were watching anna theater so that i couldn't possibly be distracted any point because like with spotlight which i saw it. If i'm festival you know like you wanna be just sort of completely in that world and not drawn out of it by you know something on your phone or whatever and so you know like all movies. That premiere on netflix. I worry that it won't land with the same impact. It would have had in the theater even though it made me cry. Like i feel like i would've felt even stronger if i had seen it in a theater. So we're committed to paying attention to it and really thinking into it and you know you can imagine a lot of people being like okay. There's bob ross thing though. Here's kind of juicy. I'm gonna flip over to that instead. Yeah like. I've always been a little skeptical of of the netflix model. When it comes to releasing a film that i feel like demands profound emotional and intellectual. Attention do So yeah. I totally agree with john. Like i did not go to sundance and i'm really sad. I missed this film there because the feeling of discovery is like exactly what you want with a film like this and now you know when we were talking about this film i still do not have it on my radar when it was about to come out because with netflix. You just cannot keep up with the amount of volume and the amount of films they're releasing and the they're really selective about what they give a big push to especially when it comes to award season so i think you guys are all on the money that it's just sort of a disappointment but.

Soon as you enter your confronted by these railings for garden square and you can see things going on behind. It be called actually step into it. You have to go around the whole of the pavilion until you find yourself back in that garden squad. And so that's kind of setting up the whole issue with privatize public space. You know these barriers to access and we re looking. How can you make it more inclusive. So how for example g get rid of the railings on your journey value.

"We start. Today's show focusing on the pavilion of the united states. The entry this year is dedicated to wood frame. Construction a sometimes overlooked but integral base for american architecture standing by the skeletal. Four pine frame that flanks the us pavilion this year. I spoke to paul. Preisner co commissioner and co curator of the installation the show is called american framing and we kind of conceptualized it as a as a concept or topic show to focus more on architecture rather than architects the way we thought we would kind of demonstrate that as with a kind of four court installation which is which we conceived of imagine as an addition to the existing us pavilion the existing. Us pavilion was built in the nineteen thirties. By aldrich and it's built in that kind of aspirated all american plotting ism of the early twentieth century and we thought to conceptually complete it with the kind of dumbest form of american architecture. The wood framed house in a way. So it's less than edition and more kind of multi-storey house with an attic. The we can't get to and so it kind of completes. The courtyard produces a proper courtyard. It produces a proper fron and it gives a way to kind of understand the show without to be described. The show like you kind of immediately. Recognize it. it's built in kind of designed with normal domestic parts dormer kind of sheer wall. It's just regular lumber in a sense and so as you approach it you kind of immediately recognize a lot of familiar types of domestic architecture but the proportions. It's a little taller and it's a little squatter producer kind of uncanny strangeness to it that is you then enter it and go into the pavilion itself kind of re frames your outlook to allow you to learn about the topic and you talk about. These timber. framed houses a dumb foam architecture. But i guess they're pretty like only president in america. What is this kind of this. Typology this type of architecture for people that maybe don't understand it and why did you choose to put it. At the very front. Paul anderson myself have worked together on installations or exhibitions for a number of years. We kind of each maintain are independent practices and come together for these. What we've always found interesting. When we worked together is to kind of look at and examine and maybe kind of explode more anonymous materials or structural. Types domestic typologies. Things that are kind of so ubiquitous that they go on examining away right like there's a kind of problem or condition where when something so ever-present it ends up being out of the kind of intellectual discourse because it's just standard and then as such a weird weird place of not being open for experimentation or thought of is really something provocative in any sense we thought like given the nature of the show. The the us pavilion itself. It would be a good opportunity to present forward. The most kind of common form of american construction wood framing accounts for over ninety percent of domestic structures in the us and is increasingly being used for commercial structures. So when i say dom. I don't mean in a sense of stupid. I mean more like inarticulate in a way right like it's kind of so anonymous it almost goes without recognition. And it's kind of ubiquity normalcy. That actually gives that kind of access and allows participation and it kind of creativity that you don't normally get you might find other of our practice whether it's painting or music or stand up comedy film. That have a little bit lower entry to participate. So i mean i guess that's the kind of reason and then putting it in the front seemed like the proper thing to do as well as a way to describe the show without text medicines so that you see it not as a representation of architecture but actually architecture i think for us one thing. We've always found disappointing. Maybe or lacking in architecture shows as opposed to say our chose. Where when you go you see. The art itself in architecture shows usually just see the representation of architecture somewhere else either through models or drawings or photographs. But you don't get to experience it. You just get to see a framed representation and so we wanted you to be in it quite literally so that you can kind of understand it so that you can see the kind of details. It's not a complete house in the sense. There's no there's no plumbing. There's no she thing. There's no siding right. It's not finished in a way. It's the kind of under skeleton. That really underscores all the superficiality within architecture that we see and so you get to see the kind of hangers and the nails. You get to see the wood chips that come off when screws pushed through it has kind of interesting history because it kind of originated in the us as a way to kind of get outside of guilds and tradition and trained labor in the early nineteenth century in the eighteen thirties. When america was expanding it was gradually moving west but unlike europe where a lot of immigrants were coming from it didn't have access to the trained labor the kind of equipment you would need to do. Masonry or stone or timber technology wood framing with kind of a unique thing in that light. You can kind of do it yourself or with small teams with very little education and it just kind of understanding of a few simple details. This all happened at the time of the production of mass produced nails as a fastener technology to make it easier and the kind of identification of softwood is a viable material for architecture right. Typically it's not up until then it wasn't thought of as anything really remarkable. Because it's week splinters really easily. It kind of warps. So it wasn't used the way. Hardwood was furnitures and timber structures. But america had a plentiful bridie of it with kind of douglas firs and whatnot. So what's interesting is it kind of is neither a kind of post and beam structure and it's neither a load bearing wall structure. It's kind of a messy version of both so you end up with like seventy studs and you don't know which one is particularly doing most of the work you kind of assume all of them are doing an even amount of work. But that's not necessarily true. Everybody was able to kind of start doing it. And then it's also really flexible like you can kind of change it as you're building it unlike other forms of construction where you have to know where everything goes and that's where it should go but you can move walls you can open wall walls. You can move doors with really little consequence to the integrity of the project. Just finally the topic of this biennale as how we live together you've obviously highlighted a form of domestic architecture in a strong and powerful way. But what are you trying to answer with the brief how you interpreting it. And how does.

I'm climbing the mountain kind of a little bit. But yeah the guy as we know. The doctor is highly intelligent man. He could have figured it out the way to upshur of sure he could have. Maybe just tried to make it difficult so we can have more fun with it. I suppose so anything about the story. Look the why. I did enjoy it. It's i think it's definitely not one of the top episodes in the mess with run but it's definitely a fun ones that have to be. I don't know. I mean i i enjoy revisiting it. It has some great moments. Great matt smith moments and the thing. That thing saddens me is as we mentioned. It's the beginning of rory being constantly emasculated and i'm glad that eventually he realizes that he is just as good as anybody else and he doesn't have to. You have to feel so so bad about himself. So that was kind of changes a little bit after his experience as a roman autan. That's but that's what it takes to get fearance. Yeah well you know. Hit the man who waited two thousand years you know. So that's right after multiple kicks in the groin. He you something. Oh yeah yeah pretty much so so glad. They figured out rory eventually venture they go all right. Y- quotes okay. I have a couple. I mean one of the pack does come from rory when when the doctor mentions cazenove and the roy castle thereby chicken was kind of fun and english as a side note. I'm sorry interrupt. David tennant actually played castle. The castle series. So it's kind of funny a little bit if you think about that that way. It's like oh no. I don't want to run into myself exactly. I thought it was a it was nice. Not possibly that for sure then. Of course rory unchecked square. Rory's like you stink of fish. And francesca well.

Yeah there was no transition. It's like one shot would be. Oh haiti a perfect human teeth. And then the next shot boom. You know full fakes. Yeah kosovo little bit a little. Bit of brock. Yeah exactly it's like okay. Get these things just like split second shot out like boob or or how did that work now. In fact i didn't directly caught pretty right all right. It probably would like okay. Freeze slaps the teeth in action. So that was a bit abrupt buzzing. I'd say i did get kind of vibe francis ford coppola's director the way they were played in the brides of dracula exactly. And that's one of my favorite vampire movies. You know aside from going way way back to nas ferrara's and what have you but Francis ford coppola's is still a big favourite mind. So i did get kind of. That was what they were going for. What did you make of that. I think so i think so. I mean you're the vampire bride. Especially since the gary oldman dracula movie have been very popular. The power mythos when you're telling dracula because they are the book the original premium smoker. So but i think it's just recently. I mean they did kind of have a little bit of You know featuring. I guess i don't know what the word i'm looking for is they they. They did kind of appear during the hammer. Horror film era. A little bit but primarily in other dracula adaptation. They kinda were forgotten about for good longtime until that. Gary oldman movie. Yeah that's right. Because i brought them back into the public consciousness. I guess is what i'm looking for your 'cause i think francis ford coppola really wanted to do something very close to the novel and so that's why he actually read the book. Nightside go figure whacky idea like hey. We're making a dracula movie okay. Maybe i should read the book. Maybe should make try to make it like dracula. Book crazy right source material. It's right there yeah. So that's the impression. I go because we didn't get much out of them kinda snarling and kind of looking looking of menacing because the kind of and then you know and just saying you know they were just hissing going. And that's about it only or maybe trying to act a little bit so tree when it came to the doctor. Oh talking together kind of very shining moment. it's like who are you.

Is Remote Work Better for the Environment?
"You may remember at the start of the pandemic when the world was at a standstill. The natural world seem to be making something of a comeback. There were stories of dolphins swimming in the canals in venice goats. Taking over towns and wales nature was healing. All of this reflected this notion that life under lockdown is good for the environment. People weren't driving to work. Companies weren't using energy to heat and power big office buildings working from home might actually save the planet. The reality though is a bit more complicated here. Talk about is professor. Liam o'brien from carleton university. Halen hi thanks for having me. So if i were to say to you. Working from home is better for the environment than a working from an office. Would you agree. I would say it's actually very complicated. A lot of the tangible things like like not having to buy gas for occurs to commute. Those are really obvious to us. But we don't think a lot of the secondary effects like the fact that now are heating and cooling our homes more. We're using office equipment at home. We're using more internet most likely and in some cases where even moving further out from our work which is going to have potentially permanent consequences. Okay so let's take the example of working from home versus going to the office so we assume as occupants. I think that if we're not in our office building than than the building isn't being heated. It's not being cooled. It's not being lit or ventilated. But that tends not to be true. A lot of these systems and big buildings are scheduled so whether there's one person in there or thousands they're still going to be operating.

Banks are getting interested in big data to figure out their climate risk
"Biden administration has made tackling climate change a priority and a big element of the business story around climate. Change is risk the risk to cities states countries companies and the banks that invest in. All of them. Some regulatory bodies like the european central bank require risk assessment and the federal reserve. May eventually as well emily. Massive karate runs the company. Four twenty seven a subsidiary of moody's she helps companies and governments figure out the risk climate change poses to them. I spoke with her last fall. The very first thing that needs to hunt bone is first to understand identified the nature of the risk this could be storms floods wildfires what those impacts are going to be and then the second step is to understand how those impacts translate in terms of financial risk credit risk and. This is where we're working closely with our parent company moody's to understand how exposure to extreme weather events for example translate in terms of impacts on cash flow on asset valuation and therefore whether we see an increase in the risk of default or whether we anticipate an impact on the stock performance the type of metrics that investors managers are going to be looking at is moody starting to take an investments climate risk into account when giving it a rating is that on the horizon so start with the disclaimer. Which is i am not speaking. On behalf of the credit rating agency moody's investors service but who we are a key data provider to the input and they are now a number of reading activities where physical risk is being incorporated systematically so for example when looking at muniz state or city in the united states. There's going to be a paragraph. In the opinion that describes whether there is risk related to climate or other environmental social governance risks If you think a city like venice or a certain states on the east coast the the long term implications of potential impacts on properties and infrastructure that our coastal can be really meaningful and so it gets a little bit to the question of on the one hundred time horizon. when will this become sufficiently disruptive that it would become a financial issue and also a matter of what is the adaptation and resilience policy and planning around that such that. You know that some of those effects could be mitigated or could be if not avoided at least managed in a way that is not so harmful to the city from economic and financial standpoint.

Christmas in Holland
"Let's start with what the holidays were like growing up in the netherlands. That's where lisbeth enhanced was born and raised. Thank you said. I should go on radio. Yeah i think so. I'd love to hear what. Christmas is like in your memory. Let's pretend your five year old girl in small town in the netherlands and christmas eve what do you what did you just do. What's happening tonight. And what happens tomorrow. Oh well you see for us. Christmas was really a family. Feast because probably you know in the netherlands. Originally we never had gifts at christmas. It was the real religious holiday and a family holiday. In my case. I remember my mother started. Prepare the house to decorate it and she had little planks and we put mawson eat with a wire and then we put all kind of green leaves like hawley and other little objects to decorate the house and we fixed it on the wall and we put it on the table and then of course we made the wreath for the front door and then you were hoping it would be snowing on the right day. Because i remember the connie fear the big tree in our garden when there was snow on each and my father would put lights that was magic and then just before christmas. My mother came up with the real christmas tree. And you know when. I was really very young. We had real candles but the clip ons real candidates under the tree inside the house yes and there was a white sheet on the floor to protect the four and then there was a basket with water in case the tree would be set on fire so it was only allowed to light the candles when daddy nami were there and we hardly moved of course because there could be a fire but it was magic to see all these flames burning and then we got it a beautiful dog and it was too dangerous so we had to put electric lights but it was still very nice now for a little child. Who is there a santa claus figure that brings the gifts that seat because christmas without presents because our santa claus is called sinter glass and he has his birthday on the sixth of december. So that is the real exciting. Feast for gifts. And i really. I would be willing to set up an association to save that son abrasion. Because i think it's the most beautiful feast in the world. Why well first of all as a child. You believe in santa claus. He is bishop coming from spain on the big ship with his assistance. Who are black pitas. They are funny dressed and are doing funny things at croats. They are little bit naughty. And you're scared of him because he is the one who could eventually put you in the sack if you hadn't been a nice job but year cintas class is keeping book and he's writing in the book if you were good or bad sell. It is very well organized into netherlands because about three weeks before the six of december which is his birthday. He officially arrived on the big ship in amsterdam and this is transmitted on television. So you are looking at it because you know once. He's in the country. Your parents will allow you to put your old shoe at the chimney. Of course many people had central heating of a problem. But you find a solution you put your shoe in front of the door or whatever anyway. Some problems for a child to believe in san nikolas because one hour later after yet seen him arriving on television in amsterdam. He's arriving in your village as well and so you say to mother. How is that possible. So then she usually explains you while there is the real warm and he has assistance because there are so many children like you. The real one cannot cope with all that

That's not an unusual thing to see. It looked kind of weirdly home amongst the other sort of naval paraphernalia around in the snarly but then of course there was no notice nothing to identify it. If diligent you look up in the catalog but unite was very mysterious but of course word of mouth soon came through this was indeed a work and art not a piece of rusting boatlift over by the navy it was balkan nostra it was cooled and it was actually the very boat which had been leaving libya for its louis laden with excess. Don't know how many of the thousands immigrants trying to get it collided with portuguese freighter. Got into trouble and sunk killing everybody. Pretty much on board. I mean it was an absolute atrocity slash disaster. The boat was then taken by the italian navy to sicily where there was an incredible detailed forensic investigation on all of the bodies of the victims many of whom were trapped in the hall of the boat. They'd be impacting. It was it was a trafficking boats. It was a horrific horrific scenario There was a forensic detailed investigations to who the identity of these people were many of their families traced and so they learn to the terrible fate of relatives now. I didn't quite know how this happened. But then time passes from two thousand fifteen. Somehow a deal is struck with the sicilian town of augusta where this both ended up in the naval base to bring it to the venice biennale as an exhibit. Christopher cal had signed a contract with the town of augusta that he could borrow the boat for yeah it would be exhibited has been and then he would return it a year later so the boats there everybody feels extremely conflicted about some people said it was a brilliant idea that shows how decadent the art world is how decadent our world is how uncaring we are. It was kind of appalling. I felt the boat was parked right by the cafe. So you start swinging europe roles and your and your cappuccinos. Perhaps not knowing there was in effect the site of mass atrocity a mass grave. Right beside you. So was it makes us think about our place. In the world on carrying thought about crises unfolding very close to us or was it. An exploitative opportunistic attention seeking Profile raising artwork by christopher. Koop and as you say he does have form in this respect. He's done other things. He's crushed landed a mosque in venice inside the catholic church for another being all for the icelandic pavilion. Several years ago he also set up community centers on controversial other things in tasmania. We'll probably talk about in a minute. So but this was a big one and yes it's very raw and the debate in the controversy still rages but the latest part of. This debate is a year on from the being ali. The boat is still. There is a dispute between the being early organization and bianco and he's gallery well absolutely yes. Because as i said he signed a deal with the city in town of augusta. Maybe you know. Maybe money exchanged hands. I don't know but anyway but the deal was that the boat would then come back to augusta where apparently it was intended to be the centerpiece for memorial park with the consent of the relatives. Also in all kinds of rumblings around the time in the been on it was stated apparently the families had given their permission for this boats to be used or some families are given their permission. I mean gardeners specific. But that will talk of permission. But now there's the boat the biennale a now say they have been hassling buco since november last year to bring this boat back to honor his agreement to honor the contract with cillian town of august. Gustave saying they want the boat back as well now sources close to buco say that because he never talks to the press which is another thing we can talk about minute They say apparently the boat was damaged in transit coming venice so it's going to be impossible until the cradle support is fixed for it to come back again to augusta so buco is now trying to get insurance to pay for this either from the benaroya. Who said no go away or probably problem rudely or indeed from the shipping company. But i mean. I would say that you know only ethics about whether you actually share bin ali or not. I felt squeamish. I think we're dead. People are concerned it starts to get very problematic. Any put all those ethics to one side. You honor the agreement to the families you on the agreement to the place from whence you lent it and if and if the cradle got caught up and pay for it or you make your gary who house involved not show for penny or two to cough up and pay for it you know. I draw lines more lines in the sand. Whatever want feels about artworks raising profile of terrible crises. Apparently there's talk about taking the boat to brussels to show how come the the eu have been ignoring the immigration crisis. I mean lofty motives. But you know this is a place where over thousand people died.

"Called Benedict Evans, and what he was saying was that with most of my detect companies historically that have had dominance and lost it. They didn't really lose it because they got attacked head on allow room by lost it because they became irrelevant ally. Venice Venice was a major shipping port, but basically people found alternative shipping routes and all of a sudden Venice was no longer really relevant in the world. It didn't matter anymore. And that's that was his comparison with a lot of the major tech companies, the IBM the Microsoft's these kind of big companies that were the dominant players and now probably a lot less, and it's an interesting analogy. I think when we talk about the spa business because I don't see anybody taking the spa business head on. But I do see us becoming more and more irrelevant. And I say that based on the numbers based on the amount of guests that we're getting through our doors. So I think as we look at the. Business. We need to think more about I think many people in the spa business. I waiting for a conflict there saying we'll nobody's fighting head on. So therefore, we're k-. But I think we need to be mindful that becoming relevant is just as dangerous. It's a more slow and painful death, perhaps maybe not even painful, maybe just slow, but it still potentially a death nonetheless. So I think we need to be doing all that we possibly can to stay relevant in a changing world. Because if you don't the world will change around you, and they'll just find another route must like they did with Venice just thought what do you think living?
