10 Minutes of Daily Reflection

10 Minutes of Daily Reflection

The pandemic and other world events have dramatically impacted everyone’s lives and created lots of stress. Now, more than ever, it’s important to take care of our bodies and minds. Shalom Lamm says that taking 10 minutes a day for quiet introspection and reflection can dramatically increase our feelings of well-being and peace. Below are some simple suggestions to begin a reflection practice.

Gratitude 

Ten minutes of gratitude can improve our psychological well-being. It can increase our self-esteem. It can improve our relationships, because those who express their gratitude are more likely to see their friends through positive eyes, and are more likely to work through any difficulties that might arise. It can also make us more spiritual, optimistic, and more giving. Gratitude can make us less materialistic because it makes us appreciate what we already have.

It can even help improve our physical well-being. It can help to reduce depressive symptoms, improve sleep and reduce blood pressure. In one study, participants who expressed gratitude were even more likely to exercise!

Explore a New Idea

Take ten minutes to write down thoughts about a new idea. It can be as complicated as a new business plan, or as simple as a new recipe. It’s important to take time to use our imagination. Thinking outside of our day-to-day realities gives us something to look forward to and can help build creative-thinking. We never know what we’re capable of until we try. Write down three thoughts about this new idea. Write down three things that are exciting about it. Follow this with five details about the idea. Finish up with a list of next steps. Often, generating new ideas leads to even more new ideas.

Highlights of the Day

Taking ten minutes to reflect on the highlights of our day is a great way to increase our appreciation of life. Think about (or write down) things that were enjoyable; things that were challenging; a person that did or said something nice; something yummy; something funny, or sad, or meaningful. With all of the things that make up our day, it’s easy to speed through it without really noticing what’s going on.

Think About Goals

 Shalom Lamm encourages us to spend some time each day thinking about our goals. Setting goals gives us something to look forward to; it keeps us moving forward. Some people need goals to give their lives direction. Each day, we can take some time to write down the steps we took towards meeting those goals. Maybe it was doing some research, or setting aside a little money, or talking about our goals with a trusted friend. Even just thinking about these goals is taking a positive step towards reaching them.

Find Joy in the Moment

Sometimes it’s important to just stop and in the moment. Look around. Take in the smells, the sights, the people. Is there something funny, or pretty that we may not have noticed if we’d just kept going?

Matthew Fleeger, Gulf Coast Western Bring Holidays to Hospitalized Kids

Matthew Fleeger, Gulf Coast Western Bring Holidays to Hospitalized Kids

Matthew Fleeger, Gulf Coast Western, and the Sadie Keller Foundation are on a mission to provide Christmas joy to kids who are in the hospital, stricken with cancer.

The day Gulf Coast Western and Matthew Fleeger host the company Christmas party has become a day its Dallas office transforms into a hub with a truckload of toys to be loaded onto Sadie’s Sleigh — the charity’s means of distributing toys to 11 hospitals covering all of Dallas-Fort Worth, plus treatment facilities in Austin, Houston, and five other states.

At the core of the relationship are two cancer survivors, Gulf Coast Western CEO Matt Fleeger and 13-year-old Sadie Keller.

“I have a survivor’s compassion for the emotional and physical impact cancer can have on an adult, but I could not fathom what it takes for a child to endure the suffering, treatments, and emotions,” Matthew Fleeger said.

In 2020, the friendship was tested by the pandemic that forced the entire world to change its focus. COVID didn’t stop kids from getting cancer. It only piled onto their problems.

Because of COVID protocol, hospitalized kids no longer get to be around each other in common area playrooms. Their visitors are often limited to a single parent. 

“In any given year, your heart goes out to these families and these children in the oncology wards. Removed from their home, removed from friends and family,” said John Engel, chief operations officer for Gulf Coast Western. “Typically, they can only see immediate family and other kids in hallways and the playrooms. But this year, they can’t socialize because of COVID.”

Charities that provide relief, like the Sadie Keller Foundation, are facing the economic brunt of the pandemic. The Foundation had to cancel its annual Yellow Ball fundraiser. Some individual contributors are tapped from helping people in need since the spring, when COVID hit. Others are among those now out of work. 

“It is my goal to not only collect over 10,000 toys for kids fighting childhood cancer in a hospital during a pandemic,” said Sadie, who has collected toys for kids who are spending their holiday season in a hospital since her own Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia diagnosis at age 7. “To hope they all get what they want for Christmas and maybe just have a smile for a minute.”

Matthew Fleeger Gulf Coast Western

All told, it’s a huge burden for 13-year-old shoulders. But Sadie’s relationship with Gulf Coast Western is deeper than corporate partners who cut a check. These are friends.

“This year was different. I’m so proud of my Gulf Coast Western coworkers. They really stepped it up,” said Tim Taylor, executive vice president. “Even with a tough year for an oil company, it pales in comparison to what they are going through.”

With Matthew Fleeger matching his employees’ contributions, Gulf Coast Western increased its contribution to Sadie’s Sleigh by 25% over 2019 with thousands of toys donated.

The shopping is done personally, with employees matching their strengths to specialize in age groups, often playing off their own parental expertise to find gifts that fit from toddlers to teens. Once it’s known they’re on a mission for cancer-stricken kids, Engel said the Gulf Coast Western shopper employees feed off the energy of workers and others in the store who watch in awe as thousands of dollars in gifts come off the shelves.

“Our focus changed to toys they could play within their rooms,” Taylor said. “We shifted away from bicycles or Power Wheels and focused on toys like Nintendo Switch, Oculus, action figures, and even wireless headphones. We really wanted to get items that could provide ways to pass the time and enjoy in their confined spaces.”

Clearly, they are toys any kid would want, continuing what the foundation praises as the company’s track record of getting the gifts just right.

“It’s about emotional support,” said Sarah Keller, Sadie’s mom. “To allow a child who’s fighting cancer to still be a kid. To help their mental health that they’re able to fight.”

In addition to the toy donations, Matthew Fleeger has also purchased more than a handful of Sadie’s paintings – artwork that supports all aspects of the foundation.

Just as Sadie has other donors, her foundation is but a slice of the charitable portfolio for Matthew Fleeger and the company. Gulf Coast Western is also involved with the North Texas Food Bank, Children’s Medical Center, Shriner’s Hospitals, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Magdalene House and Smile Train.

Most of Gulf Coast Western’s Boise, Idaho, office employees were also able to join in the 2020 presentation for Sadie’s Sleigh.

“At the end of the day, when we’re all together at the company Christmas party with our spouses, the toy donation is still all the buzz, separate from the awards and the other traditions of the event,” Taylor said. “It’s the best team-building exercise we’ve ever done.”

Just as Sadie was unable to see the emotions of the children at the receiving end of the gifts this season, the masks worn at the gathering prevented the corporate and charity friends from seeing the smiles when the lobby full of gifts were presented and loaded on the truck by dozens of Gulf Coast Western employees.

But the feeling in their hearts was the same, maybe even better, than at previous Christmases.

“It’s what makes them different,” Sarah Keller said. “Even in hard times they come through and come through big. They’ve shown up for us in a year that it matters most.”

Best New York Slices

Best New York Slices

Finding some of the best food in the world is as simple as a visit to New York City. Residents know that they can find food from a variety of cultures virtually 24 hours a day. While New York is known for its bodegas and hot dog carts, the city is also one of the best places to get a delicious slice of pizza. For a late-night meal, takeout for the family, or a quick lunch on the go, here are some of the best places to order pizza in NYC.

Lucali

This pizzeria in Brooklyn offers wood-fired pizzas with a variety of toppings. Of course, patrons can also opt for the classic tomato, mozzarella, and basil pizza. The dough is rolled out with empty wine bottles and the pizzas are the perfect combination of soft and crunchy. Lucali is a small eatery and customers are encouraged to bring their own bottles of their favorite beverage to enjoy with their pizza.

Di Fara Pizza

Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn is a favorite of George Rutler, who has been living in New York for years now. The pizzeria was founded in 1964, and the owner, Dom DeMarco, has been behind the counter serving customers ever since. DeMarco makes all the pies himself. The crust has a slightly salty taste to it, and several types of cheeses and olive oils are used to enhance the flavor of each savory pie. He  often opts for the square pie, which is topped with lots of sauce and cheeses and has a heavy, buttery crust.

Ops

This Bushwick pizzeria offers pizzas made from a decadent sourdough crust. The eatery is known for its Neapolitan pie, but those who frequent the pizzeria often will likely recommend the Grandma Pie, which is made with mozzarella made in-house, basil, tomatoes, olives, and a thick square crust.

Rubirosa

Those in the Nolita area looking for a delicious pizza for lunch or dinner can check out Rubirosa. The thin crust of the pizza is similar to a well-made cracker, and the sauce tastes a lot like the red sauce used for penne a la vodka. The classic pie is a favorite, but the tie-dye, which includes a combination of red sauce and pesto, is a delicious choice as well.
These are just a few of the pizza places that make NYC a great place to live or visit. Visitors and natives, including Father Rutler, can check out these pizzerias for an unforgettable meal.

Dr. Alddo Molinar and How Passion Influences Career in Medicine

Dr. Alddo Molinar and How Passion Influences Career in Medicine

If you’re considering a career in medicine, you’ve likely heard plenty of advice centered around how to achieve that goal. Primers for prospective medical school students are full of the importance of earning good grades, making oneself appealing to schools, and otherwise accruing relevant knowledge to be used towards one’s degree. However, while these primers can be detailed on “how” to achieve the goal, they often neglect to pay enough attention to “why” you want to achieve it. Since your passion for a pursuit can play such a critical role in success, we’ve turned to the work of Dr. Alddo Molinar to develop a better appreciation for the “why” of becoming a doctor.

Power of passion

One of the reasons passion can be such an essential trait for a doctor or any medical professional is due to the career’s difficulty. It’s no secret that physicians often work long hours and can be on-call even when they’re not at work. Their time at work can be difficult as well, with many of them working with patients who are in an especially difficult time in their lives. Many doctors may also encounter patients when they are in an extremely precarious health condition where their very lives may be at stake. Taken together, these realities of the profession can put immense stress and strain on an individual practitioner.

That’s where passion can come to a medical professional’s aid. When times become difficult,  and there may be a temptation to give up, deeply held conviction can remind you why you endeavored on this path in the first place. Passion can help guide you through these tough times and move you in the right direction when you’ve lost your way. It can also give you the motivation to go the extra mile to accomplish your goals truly. For these reasons and more, following your passion, or working to develop it, can be a crucial component of building a successful career in the field of medicine.

Early life

With all that in mind, however, one thing to understand is that passion is rarely informed by only a single source.  Instead, a person’s passion for their pursuit may develop from a number of different life experiences. In the case of Dr. Alddo Molinar, one relevant experience came early in his life when one of his family members was tragically diagnosed with a form of cancer that was particularly difficult to treat. The young child felt helpless as he watched his family member undergoing increasingly more aggressive treatments that seemed to have little effect on their illness.

The future doctor also took note of the effect of the illness not only on the patient but also on the rest of the family. As a leader in his family unit became sicker and sicker, he internalized just how difficult and widespread the toll of a severe illness can be. Though it was the patient who was devastated by the disease, the rest of the family suffered as well.

This early experience helped to inform his sense of what he wanted to do with his life. He felt confident that there was an important place for him in the world that centered around reducing the amount of suffering felt by others. He also noted the drive of medical professionals to make this a reality. It was not only a formative experience that he would come back to again and again throughout his career, but it was also the first true clue of what he wanted to do with the rest of his life.

Work in the field

Another way that the doctor developed his passion for his career before he formally entered the medical field was to shadow medical professionals and get a feel for their work. This is a common practice that can do wonders to familiarize a person with the realities of a career in a chosen concentration. By seeing how actual professionals conduct their days, a person can better understand what their own life might be like if they were to direct their profession towards such an undertaking.

The practice can also help to develop the all-important passion a person has for their work, should they choose to continue along their path. That’s because they can begin to see what motivates other practitioners in the field and can examine for themselves if such a motivation might fit for themselves. In this way, they can see the ups and downs of a typical career and see what techniques working professionals use to remind themselves of why they got into the work in the first place. By following the example set by those who have excelled in a medical career, a prospective student can better equip themselves to take advantage of their innate passion.

Value of training

One more critical place that Dr. Alddo Molinar was able to gain a passion for this work was during his formal education, including his residency and fellowship at the renowned Cleveland Clinic. His time training at the medical center helped not only instill a sense of passion for his primary specialty, but also afforded him the ability to build his interest in many subspecialties. These included critical care medicine and cardiovascular intensive care.

Building a diverse range of passions within one’s chosen profession in the above manner can create resiliency in a person’s motivation. When one area of your work may be less than satisfying, a well-rounded practitioner can lean more heavily on another passion for the time being. Then, as life naturally shifts, the original passion may express itself more firmly at a later time. The result is a more stable way to motivate yourself through the ups and downs of a demanding profession.

While many preparatory materials for a career in medicine focus on the logistical details of achieving such a career, it’s not uncommon for them to pay little attention to the passion that may sustain you through such a career. The above look at the work of Dr. Alddo Molinar provides a real-world example of not only some of the ways he’s stoked his passion for his work, but also how that passion benefits medical professionals. Consider placing importance on building the trait in yourself as you navigate a potential career in medicine and beyond.

Nicolas Krafft, Former L’Oreal Executive, Weighs in On Work-Life Balance

Nicolas Krafft, Former L’Oreal Executive, Weighs in On Work-Life Balance

Striking a balance between one’s home life and a fast-paced career is one of the pillars of achieving success and attaining happiness. Yet, according to Nicolas Krafft, mastering a fulfilling work-life balance is one of the biggest challenges faced by today’s workforce. This year in particular has made that clearer than ever before. As the COVID-19 pandemic has confined people to their homes and forced most jobs to be worked from the confines of our houses, people are deliberately focusing on striking that balance between work and home as both now share the same roof. 

Most people, if not all, could benefit from a better work-life balance and Nicolas Krafft, a former L’Oreal executive, knows this. Nicolas has spent a large portion of his career traveling, which has forced him to find balance between a demanding career and a personal life.

What is Work-Life Balance?

Nicolas Krafft’s career has taken him around the globe and back countless times, often for extended periods of time. This extensive travel schedule, coupled with demanding business responsibilities, is what required Nicolas to be productive and forced the former L’Oreal executive to work on striking a healthy work-life. In short, a work-life balance is the ability to balance work and life so that neither is neglected and both receive the attention necessary to be successful long-term. It could also apply to one’s life outside of the office on work trips.

A balanced work-life balance is not only fundamental to one’s well-being and happiness, but also to overall career success. According to Krafft, a good work-life balance enables one to take a step back and see the bigger picture. In order to free his mind and recharge, Krafft would turn to running and climbing, which would clear his mind and allow him to see through dense issues in a much simpler, refreshed way. During his extensive business travels, he would make sure to carve out some time for local activities such as shopping at a market on his own or informally with some members of his team. This, according to Krafft, enabled him to satisfy his own curiosity as well as develop a sense of the local culture that ultimately drove business decisions. Striking a work-life balance and allowing space for activities and conversations outside of the purview of work, even with coworkers, will undeniably allow for a fresher mind and a sharper perspective, both of which will directly and positively impact one’s work.

Striking a work-life balance can indeed mean putting up boundaries and leaving work at work, but it can also mean melding work and life together in a way that breeds positive outcomes instead of negative outcomes. 

The Detriments of Bad Work-Life Balance

There are several things that can lead to an unhealthy work-life balance. Some of the most common are longer working hours, assuming conflicting roles, balancing conflicting objectives, and not spending enough time with family and friends. Nicolas Krafft believes that having a clear understanding of how a company can positively impact the lives of its employees and customers is imperative to manage such situations, as is understanding how your focus on work is affecting your well-being and your family.

Nicolas Krafft adds that there are several reasons why companies have increasingly begun to prioritize a more sound balance between work and home demands for their staff. They have realized that a healthy work-life balance leads to fewer health problems, enhanced engagement among their teams, high productivity, and an increased sense of mindfulness and pride in their employee’s work. 

How to Establish Work-Life Balance

Nicolas Krafft shares that he has established routines that enable him to maintain a strong work-life balance. His routine includes adjusting his flight schedules so that he can sleep on the plane, exercising during his trips, and not working on the plane. He also makes sure to prioritize spending as much time as possible with his family, something he deems as crucial. He takes steps toward reducing the length of his trips and works to schedule video conferences for follow ups whenever possible to avoid weekend travel.

Work-life balance in 2020 is obviously much different than it was in 2019. We are working from home, we’re not travelling, and we’re not sharing space with people who are not our family. But while striking a work-life balance this year doesn’t require us to work around a busy travel schedule, it does require us to navigate an unknown entity: a global pandemic. The stage is different this year, but the stakes are just as high.

Working from home and separated from your core work group means that the team needs to be able to set boundaries and expectations so the company mission isn’t lost and the work continues unabated. Working from home also requires us to work towards a work-life balance, but from a different angle. Now that we are all working from home it has become increasingly hard to “leave work at work”. Our work is now accessible to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which makes it that much easier to work later hours and weekends. A separation must be struck so that work doesn’t overtake our home life. Working and living in the same space can be beneficial but we need to make sure we leave work behind when the day ends and give ourselves the time to decompress and experience our home lives.

Final Thoughts

Overall, establishing a flexible and clear work environment can be one of the most effective means by which work-life balance can be struck. Not only will this lead to greater job satisfaction, but it will also decrease stress, help team members establish and maintain healthy habits, and increase engagement. 

During unprecedented times like the ones we currently find ourselves in, flexible work hours and an ability to work from home enable a more satisfying work experience overall. Ultimately, ensuring that a team has the resources in place to strike an effective balance between personal and professional demands will lead to increased loyalty and retention. This doesn’t come without its possible determinants, though. 

This year has thrown all norms out the window, and that includes the normal definition of work-life balance. We now work where we live. Can we separate the two and allow for continued productivity? A balance must be struck, but it is possible. 

About Nicolas Krafft

History Of Law

History Of Law

The law history of the 1800s is one of the most extensive fields of study in higher education. Students interested in a career in law need to understand how the law developed over time, how it relates to current issues, and how it was applied to previous societies. The first two factors–how the legal mandate developed and how it applies to society in general–are essential for any legal mandate course. The third factor, how the legal mandate was applied at the time, is only tangential to understanding legal mandate. Lawyers like Diego Ruiz Durán know there is a legal mandate student interested in learning about legal mandate throughout history should focus on how the legislation developed concerning society, how it applies today, and how those legal mandates affect those who live in that society.

One significant component of this study is that legislation developed as a reaction to people’s social conditions in the period in question. Each society developed its legal system to deal with those social problems and concerns. For example, legal mandates were developed to deal with disputes between individuals, groups, and nations. One piece of legislation from the time of the Norman conquest, the legal mandate of entailment, made it possible for subjects to act against those who harmed them if the victim could not repay the damage done.

The piece of legislation’s development was also fueled by the rise of the common code system, which permitted the elevation of individual rights to the courts (including life, liberty, and property) through judicial precedent. The most well-known common right in the United States is the right to trial by jury, which allowed people to be excluded from juries during instances where they might not behave properly or are prone to commit criminal acts. This jury selection process, common in civil cases throughout the country, often performs a key role in deciding the case’s outcome.

Throughout the years, judges continued to make important decisions regarding the administration of justice. For example, some years after the enlightenment, the first legal mandates were created in the American colonies. These decisions were significant in terms of societal views and dictated how the courts ruled on marriage and divorce issues. For centuries, judges’ rulings in these instances have consistently been in favor of the more progressive parts of the populace. Throughout the late 1800s, the “legal mandates of settlement” gradually crystallized into the” judges’ code,” which remained in effect until the 20th century.

The writers and constructors of the constitution of the United States were keenly aware that the separation of powers in the constitution represented a danger to the king’s power. This concern, the framers included the checks and balances clause of the constitution, which required that the king be subjected to “quotations” before the courts could render their decisions. Additionally, during the New York legislature, there was an extraordinarily slight change to the courts’ legal mandate, other than the dissolution of the monasteries. This, combined with the fact that the king rarely exercised his right to control monasteries, was one of the main reasons the king did not hesitate to use the courts against its citizens during the revolutionary era. Some of the court cases were vicious, and others reflected an overall attitude toward the poor by the New York legislature.

As the nation moved from being primarily a rural agricultural country to becoming a larger industrial and manufacturing power, the courts’ role also changed. Until the civil war, the federal government relied on judges’ authority to provide the nation’s rule of legal mandate. Although judges continued to make decisions based on their judgment, the executive branch gradually gained the power that it had long sought. In the 1820s, after the republicans took over the house of representatives, the party began to seek more aggressive judicial rulemaking.

During the period of the New York governor Andrew Jackson, the “peasantry” concept developed. Under this system, there were separate courts for civil cases and criminal cases. While the civil court judges sat to determine disputes between citizens and the government, the criminal courts prosecuted those who violated the legal mandate. Because the executive was the chief executive power in New York, Jackson replaced the standing courts with the supreme court, which had the final say over all civil and criminal disputes. Diego Ruiz Durán enjoys studying the history of law.

Traits One Needs To Have For A Career In Constitutional Law

Traits One Needs To Have For A Career In Constitutional Law

Having a career in Constitutional law is a different brand of legal work to judges like Andrew Napolitano. This type of law requires upholding the constitution and all its aspects. That is why one has to know what one is getting into when considering this type of practice. Now, one can learn some of these traits in law school, but most of them come from a natural and innate learning process. One will find four of the main points broken down below. One needs to have a passion for practicing this type of legal practice. One has to have a passion for the constitution and what it represents from every angle. This type of legal practice requires upholding everything from the supreme court powers to the judiciary elements. One can learn a great deal of this in law school, but there is only so much law school can teach (as stated before). One cannot stray from the elements the founding fathers laid out. That is why one should not venture into this type of practice unless one is willing to live and die for what the constitution represents. This is where passion and love come into play. One cannot perform one’s sacred duties without it.

One has to be willing to listen. Now, one can learn some of this at school, but listening requires some to go through kind of a reboot. Most are taught to listen simply to respond. That means one is not really listening to what the other is saying. One is only listening for something to respond to. One has to be able to perform active listening skills if one is going to go into this type of legal practice. One has to go beyond oneself to hear what the other side is saying. One has to have this ability for any type of legal practice, but the constitutional side is especially important.

One should not venture into this legal practice unless one is willing to learn every aspect of the constitution. This requires a specific type of discipline because the constitution is very in-depth. One has to be willing to do a lot of research on the subject. One has to have good judgment if one is going to pursue an active career practicing this type of legal profession. One has to be willing to make the most sound choice for one’s client, no matter if one disagrees with the choice or not. One has to remove oneself from the equation and think about one’s client. Good judgment is most of the time innately learned through the human process. However, sometimes when one has to learn some of the intricate aspects of the job, according to Andrew Napolitano. One can also seek advice from teachers and other legal professionals when in doubt. Good judgment is unbiased and always should be.

One has the option of choosing from different law schools or universities. However, one school (Yale Law School) tops the list and one will find out why below. One will have many different options to choose from when one graduate. Alexander Djerassi is extremely successful because of his education at Yale Law School. One can go to work for a large corporate firm. One can go work for an underperforming business that might have had budget cuts, and this is just to start. One has so many to pick from. Yale provides a benchmark for an unlimited future. This law school will help one to really think like a lawyer. Some schools only give one a limited view of what being a lawyer means (truly means). One will also be joining the ranks of some very famous men and women who attended the school.

One can feel a great deal of pride knowing that one’s future is cemented in history (whether one wants it or not). One will also feel more motivated to achieve certain things that one might not feel otherwise. One will feel encouraged and pushed to use more logic and reason than one might otherwise feel inclined to do. One might get the privilege of attending exotic locations. Here is the thing, many internships and programs provide extra dedication for students. One might be included in those programs. Study abroad programs are a good way for one to get one’s feet wet for a possible future endeavor. One will get to see different climates and background up close and personal. This will serve as a great education. One will walk away with greater empathy for certain cultures and people. This empathy will come in handy if one has to handle a case involving that later. Lawyers work with people of all races, creeds, and backgrounds. One will also serve clients from those places. One might feel more empathy and a sense of culture de to one’s study program.

This will give one a breather after attending an undergraduate program and before going into a job. Sometimes one needs a break before starting the grueling 24? 7 work of being a lawyer. Make no mistake, one will work 24/7, sometimes more at one’s job. The Yale school will provide one with the extra education one needs to succeed in life, especially when one is not ready to join the workforce yet. Plus, it is required if one wants to be a lawyer. One has to have both an undergraduate and Masters’s degree. This school will provide that. One will get the chance to learn another language. This will prove beneficial when one has clients who speak different languages, according to Alexander Djerassi. Attending will help support those who already practice and teach professionally. One is actually giving back without knowing it.
