I think there's a lot of Clemson. The expressed. Obviously on what's happening in the U says there's concern about Europe this concern that the emerging market doesn't unarmed growing. -- rapidly announced. And this and set the bar to you know the kind of regulations that enforce financial services. Changed dramatically. So I would say that -- the mood you know bomb while we talk about the team is -- and dynamism and you know the idea is. To try and get people to get mode become more dynamic -- in the face of all of the things that are happening which means -- -- the take a little more risk but right now the environment in the woods is such that mistaking is actually. Not acceptable. And everybody wants everybody's moved towards conservatism everybody's -- -- Known risk kind of please right. And isn't promptly releasing a turnaround of things getting better. I think from our industry going to few IT sadly we are seeing slightly more thorough optimism into the team. Intrigued you wrote we found that why do all right -- budgets but the spending just didn't keep peace security budget. On the other hand -- to eighteen we're actually seeing. Higher likelihood of spending equaling. I -- budgets. Also be a starting to see a little bit of we don't know what I call low discretionary spending.

That customers are trying to make sure that they can hang on to their customers improve experiences -- customers improve realizations from that estimates that it.

Both address the question to it. Globally I'm and they do believe that we are part of the solution no question about it. In specific local pockets you know obviously -- maybe a little different because the ID industry's model has. Or I moved to making sure that. -- -- collect programming is moving to geography is -- in the what can be done significantly cheaper than in the United States. Having said that. You know. And I'm seeing a certain bullishness. In the rally. The starting all fours or comparisons graduates from. Help us industries like book aliens and foot and stuff but that in the silicon gladiator. Is actually quite high you know an undergrad level. So I think it's on boards knows what at least from a technology perspective for a return off a strong employment. And just finally when you get home for the weekend next week San Francisco buying long. What's the one thing you can look back and think that was a really successful tablets for me. Well you know I always believed that you know and held his advice of -- -- on tournament like this. I think if you can take back what new idea that you can implement. In your life are in -- business. And if you make one new friend for life that then -- as an investment here.
