Costa Rica finishes eighth in World Junior Surfing Championship

first_imgAt the end of the week-long 2015 International Surfing Association (ISA) World Junior Surfing Championship in Oceanside, California, Costa Rica’s team had set another national record. With the top-notch surfing this country has come to expect from its talented young athletes, Costa Rica finished 8th among the 36 nations, its highest position yet in any of the junior games they have attended since Tahiti in 2004. (Courtesy Alfredo Barquero)The Costa Rica team was composed of Leonardo Calvo of Boca Barranca, Denis Picard of Jacó, Bruno Carvalho of Jacó, Joseph Méndez of Jacó, Malakai Martínez of Tamarindo, Aldo Chirinos of Playa Negra, Óscar Urbina of Puerto Viejo, Leilani McGonagle of Pavones and Emily Gussoni  of Jacó. These 9 surfers, out of the 322 athletes who attended the WJSC, were consistent, powerful and demonstrated a high level of maneuverability on the beach break of Oceanside, which enjoyed a beautiful swell that often sent waves overhead and sometimes into barrels.Emily Gussoni, who placed 13th in both the Under 18 and Under 16 Girls categories, offered a theory as to why the team did so well: “I think the Costa Rica Surf Federation chose the right surfers for these waves,” she said. “We were lucky because the ocean wasn’t that cold, so we surfed with a spring suit, which was easier for us.” Emily Gussoni (Courtesy Alfredo Barquero)On the last day, it even seemed that McGonagle would add to her hardware with another medal, as she made it all the way to the Under 16 Girls repechage finals before ending up in eighth place in this division. Other strong finishers included Chirinos, who places 15th and Martínez, who placed 25th.Meanwhile, Méndez, who did double duty in both age groups, ended in the repechage quarterfinals in the Under 16 and Under 18 categories. He earned 21st in the former, and 29th in the latter.While the individual ranking numbers might seem less than impressive, it was the points that came along with these positions that boosted the entire team to its impressive No. 8 spot among all the teams.An important dynamic contributing to the Ticos’ success in California was the fact that these younger athletes were under the guidance of coach Wade Sharp, the South African who just last June helped the older Ticos win the Gold Medal at the ISA World Surfing Games in Nicaragua. (Courtesy Alfredo Barquero)“I’m proud of the team,” boasted Sharp. “What this young team achieved speaks to the great years you can expect from Costa Rica with guys who can still make another two or three more junior world [championships] and who were featured here. California is one of the best waves, with the best education an event could give them.”Recommended: New generation of Costa Rican surfers puts sport in the spotlightAnd there’s more good news for Costa Rica. Finishing eighth means that the team will be able to participate in the Aloha Cup Tag Team event in next year’s ISA World Junior Surfing Championship in Portugal. This particular format of competition is likely to be the one used in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which, after much lobbying by the ISA, will include surfing for the first time ever. With five years to hone their international levels, it’s likely that one or more of the youngsters who competed in Oceanside will be on a Costa Rica Olympic team.ISA President Fernando Aguerro concurred. When addressing all the international teams at the award ceremony followed the World Junior Championship he said: “Some of these surfers now stand a solid chance to become the first ever Olympic Surfers in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.”The continental U.S. won the gold medal and 1st place for its team, with France in 2nd, Hawaii in 3rd and Australia taking 4th. Japan, Portugal and South Africa followed in that order. Costa Rica, at 8th place, was the leading Latin American country, beating Peru, Brazil and Argentina at 9, 12 and 14, respectively.Individual placements:Under 18Joseph Méndez: 29Leonardo Calvo: 33Dennis Picado: 49Bruno Carvalho: 65Under 16Aldo Chirinos: 15Joseph Méndez: 21Malakai Martínez: 25Óscar Urbina: 57Under 18 GirlsEmily Gussoni: 13Leilani McGonagle: 21Under 16 GirlsLeilani McGonagle: 8Emily Gussoni: 13 Facebook Comments Related posts:Puerto Viejo native Gilbert Brown wins Latin Pro surf competition in ALAS debut VIDEO: Fans in the last excruciating moments of Costa Rica vs. Netherlands UN secretary-general hops on a bike to promote urban cycling Costa Rica to host World Surf League comp in Esterillos Estelast_img read more

Builder Confidence Holds Steady in November

first_img in Data Builder confidence remained flat in the “”National Association of Home Builders'””:http://www.nahb.org/default.aspx (NAHB) November report, with a slight majority of builders saying market conditions are promising.[IMAGE]The NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) came out to 54 this month, unchanged from October’s downwardly revised reading. An index value above 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good than poor; November marks the sixth straight month in which confidence has hovered above the neutral mark.””Policy and economic uncertainty is undermining consumer confidence,”” said NAHB chief economist David Crowe. “”The fact that builder confidence remains above 50 is an encouraging sign, considering the unresolved debt and federal budget issues cause builders and consumers to remain on the sideline.””The index component measuring current sales conditions held steady in November at 58, with expected sales six months from now falling one point to an index value of 60. The component gauging buyer traffic also slipped one point, falling to 42.””Given the current interest rate and pricing environment, consumers continue to show interest in purchasing new homes, but are holding back because Congress keeps pushing critical decisions on budget, tax and government spending issues down the road,”” said NAHB chairman Rick Judson. “”Meanwhile, builders continue to face challenges related to rising construction costs and low appraisals.””Two of the four Census regions reported improvements in their respective indices: the South, where confidence rose to an index value of 55, and the Northeast, which saw a 14-point turnaround to a value of 44, matching September’s reading.Meanwhile, the Midwest and West recorded decreases. The Midwest’s index fell eight points to 54, while the West’s index dropped a single point to 58.

Ayokunle stated this while reacting to the killings in Benue and Taraba States Speaking with The Sun Ayokunle also berated security agencies for failing to protect Nigerians against the attacks He insisted that security agencies were not helpless but they “didn’t do their work as they ought to do” According to Ayokunle “The problem is people taking laws into their hands; people becoming sick about religious ideas mentally sick thinking that they will by force sweep over every place and convert everybody to their religion because Abubakar Shekau didn’t mince words about his intention “He said it loud and clear that his intention was to establish Sharia from the north to the south to the Atlantic Ocean “The security agencies were not helpless but they didn’t do their work as they ought to do Why should they be helpless “Is it because they were not given weapons Was it because they were not trained They were trained they were given weapons But what we see which we have been talking

Okpe a professional tailor and an indigene of Ugbugbu told DailyPost DailyPost gathered that problem started when the people got tired of their continuous stay in the land and told the Herdsmen to kindly relocate Apparently angered by their refusal to go “some youth mobilized themselves and confronted them to leave the community immediately In the process of the argument one of youth snatched one of their motorbikes and fled” Another source confirmed In a quick reprisal the Herdsmen invaded Atamaka and its neighbouring villages and destroyed some houses as well as their farm produce Also destroyed were cloths and electronics “Many people were injured and are currently receiving treatment at different hospitals” the source said Confirming the incident to our reporter the mayor of

De Janeiro | Published: August 13 2016 10:25 am That both Bolt and Gatlin are still running at such a high level is unusual and not just because of their age (Source: AP) Top News Always the crown jewel in the Olympic athletics programme the Rio 100 metres final is shaping up to be extraordinary for many reasons When Usain Bolt and company enter the Olympic stadium on Sunday this will be it The last Olympic 100 metres final for the greatest sprinter the sport has known With victory Jamaican Bolt would become the first man to win three consecutive 100 metres titles at the Games Carl Lewis (1984 and 1988) and fellow American Archie Hahn (1904 and 1906) share the current mark with two each Yet the lanky Bolt is not the only one looking for a place in history American rival Justin Gatlin at the age of 34 would make a mark of his own with a podium finish No man that old has ever medalled in an Olympic 100 metres final Britain’s Linford Christie holds the honour at present snatching gold at the 1992 Barcelona Games at age of 32 “It’s a very old competition with Bolt and Gatlin” Olympic historian Bill Mallon told Reuters in an email “Some young guys are coming up with (American) Trayvon Bromell and (Canadian) Andre de Grasse but I don’t see them challenging the old guys quite yet” While a Bolt triumph for the third consecutive Games would be a major accomplishment it would not in the mind of Mallon push the Jamaican to the top of Olympic athletics achievements “(He’s) still behind Lewis’s long jumps and (American compatriot Al) Oerter’s discus throws” Mallon said Both won four consecutive Olympic titles in the same event “If he (Bolt) does the triple gold again (100-200-4×100 relay) that would be at the very top of athletics Olympics achievements” said Mallon A third consecutive triple would also tie Bolt with legendary Finnish long-distance runner Paavo Nurmi and Lewis as leaders in athletics Olympic gold medals with nine each That both Bolt and Gatlin are still running at such a high level is unusual and not just because of their age Gatlin the 2004 Olympic champion was totally out of the sport for four years while serving a second doping ban Yet the American is the fastest in the world this year at 980 seconds FULLY ELIGIBLE Because of his doping past not everyone believes he should even be in the sport However he is fully eligible to compete under International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) rules The soon to be 30-year-old Bolt’s physique contributes to his unusualness Before the Jamaican and coach Glen Mills figured out a way to squeeze the 196 metres runner and his lanky legs into the starting blocks few thought a sprinter that tall could be a success in the 100 metres Eight world records six Olympic gold medals and 11 total world titles prove the doubters wrong By comparison Gatlin a one-time hurdler has one Olympic gold and two world titles stretching back to 2005 He has become even faster since returning from his four-year doping ban in 2010 and in 2013 handed Bolt his only loss in their eighth 100 metres meetings But he is unlikely to cause another upset A demoralising loss to Bolt at the 2015 world championships when Gatlin was clearly in better shape no doubt weighs heavily on the American If you believe in tell-tell signs just check the colour of the track at the Rio Olympic stadium It is blue

into India and compete rather than stay back and sulk is the most significant writing on the Assamese wall today It’s changing equations social and political and explains why this election will mark the demise of the AGP and the rise of the BJP as the second political force in the state Writings on the wall is a metaphor that emerged from travels across India particularly but not necessarily during elections (for earlier writings see googl/v83OBh googl/5lkWMW) Writings on the wall because as you drive across the countryside your eyes open it’s what is written on the walls that tells you the story of what is changing and what isn’t what is on top of people’s minds and what’s been junked It reminds you of how this changing new India never fails to surprise you Particularly how logically people have moved from grievance to aspiration and now ambition and assertion Or in the case of Assam from static lazy sulking to old-fashioned virtuous migration to where better opportunity might be Over nearly four days of travel through the Brahmaputra Valley an old-timer honorary Asomiya like me was so utterly astounded by the complete absence of bitterness talk of injustice discrimination of how our resources are being vacuumed by mainland India and how we are treated as a colony On my second day however I do hear some angry complaints And soon they become a chorus But wait this isn’t my Assamese friends returning to their old normal I along with Samudra Gupta Kashyap our brilliant Northeast correspondent for 23 years are feted by local student activists at a roadside stop on the outskirts of Kaliabor where Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s son Gaurav is contesting or just easing himself into a seat warmed by his father (three times and his uncle twice victorious) The complaint is not about bad roads: we sit next to the newly four-laned national highway (now called Asian Highway as it is supposed to connect Istanbul with Tokyo ultimately) It isn’t even about exploitation or lack of jobs which is a problem Most significantly it isn’t even about the “invasion” of Bangladeshis It is about rhinos Two more rhinos have been killed in the past week taking the toll already to 11 in adjoining Kaziranga At this rate 2014 will break the record of 48 killings by poachers in Kaziranga in 1998 “Do something about this sir” says Moni Madhav Mahanta AASU student leader in Kaliabor “Your voice in Delhi can help Our government just can’t handle it” These are leaders of the same almighty AASU (All Assam Students Union) that led the most stirring popular movement in independent India’s history They blocked crude to the mainland boycotted an election so effectively in 1983 that one Bhumidhar Barman (Congress Nalbari) set a world record winning a hundred per cent votes in his constituency He polled all the 271 votes cast His rival couldn’t even cast his own And when Barman was made a minister in Hiteswar Saikia’s mostly illegitimate government AASU put up a hoarding in front of his native house: this place reserved for cremating Bhumidhar Barman Nobody dared remove it for months The same AASU is back to blockading the highway again But only when a rhino is poached And they are angry with their own government not “India’s” its CRPF army or even the Calcutta media Assam’s oldest bugbear It isn’t as if they have no complaints or demands More colleges better jobs English-medium education more sports facilities In short things Indians this age would demand anywhere in this aspirational country To that extent the Assamese have also re-joined the national mainstream Part of the new assurance comes from the state’s growth and improvement in quality of life that makes Tarun Gogoi the Congress party’s most successful chief minister ahead of even Sheila Dikshit But a lot also from knowing that boys and girls “amar lora” (our boys) as our then AASU leaders were proudly described once are doing brilliantly elsewhere in the country There is chatter about how Asomiyas dominate the music and film production and processing industry in Bollywood And how they are acquiring fame in fields as diverse as medicine to software to banking to most importantly media A dozen smiles lift the staid dining hall from its dim diesel-generated lighting as we talk about the one and only Arnab Goswami who scolds the entire country with such panache every work-day evening What better than a fellow and young Asomiya asking the high and mighty what the nation wants to know and then even answering that question This is progress for a people who complained for decades that India never listened to them of how Nehru had dumped them in 1962 with his most infamous “my heart goes to the people of Assam” as the Chinese spilled over the foothills minutes away as a helicopter flies across the Brahmaputra from where we sit Having been a journalist for nearly four decades now I am at that stage of life where I mostly end up flaunting the fact that I knew most famous younger people because I was friends with their parents Arnab Goswami is no exception It is just that I knew his uncle Dinesh Goswami instead One of the nicest gentlest most generous intelligent patriotic and soft-spoken (the one quality you wouldn’t accuse his famous nephew of having inherited from him) persons at the peak of the trouble in Assam He loved us reporters and we dropped by at whim at his modest home in Bharalumukh just where you enter Guwahati coming in from the Borjhar airport and he always had some gossip gyan and words of comfort for you besides indeed an endless supply of tea served in tiny white cups even if the beverage was sheer molasses boiled with tea leaves and cardamom He was a key supporter of the protest and a moderate level-headed one One adda at his home and you would discount all the rubbish you might have heard about the students movement being secessionist As the agitators transformed into a political party Asom Gana Parishad much like the AAP today Dinesh became its leading light He was elected MP and served as law minister in VP Singh’s cabinet none of which even affected him of course But in so many conversations he expressed concern that if the “boys” were not careful their movement could be hijacked by either secessionists or more likely the RSS If he were alive today he would claim vindication but with embarrassment not pride The “movement” hasn’t been hijacked It has simply ceded the space it had created for a sub-national regional ethnic political force to a more sectarian ultra-nationalist BJP To say that this happened because the “boys were not careful” would only be a euphemism Dinesh Goswami would have used The AASU-AAGSP-AGP leaders’ betrayal has few parallels in Indian political history They took no time learning the bad habits of “mainstream” politics Corruption intrigue lying groupism and even more sadly in the case of many alcoholism Bhrigu Phukan who was to the AGP and its Prafulla Mahanta what Manish Sisodia Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan together are to Arvind Kejriwal drank himself to death after Mahanta sidelined him Digen Bora another fiery leader similarly killed himself not knowing what to do with the pile he would make daily as food minister On a drive to the distant village of Kampur as I hop into his bullet-proof SUV after a chance meeting near Nowgong Mahanta names a couple more like these And if I don’t detect much pain on his face it is not because the sun sets early in Assam The light is fading but there is enough for me to catch a streak of satisfaction if not joy Better the rest of you than me The ones who avoided alcohol were consumed by Assam’s roads including Lalit Rajkhowa advisor to AASU and transport minister in the first Mahanta government and Dinesh Goswami at just 56 Nagen Sarma another key figure was blown up by an ULFA bomb At Kampur about 15 km on a village road off the national highway but as beautifully metalled (under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana) Mahanta graciously drags me to join a felicitation and prayer at the quaint Namghar at the congregation hall where the majority Vaishnavite followers of Sankardeva pray and chant in front of no idol but the Holy Bhagwat And even as my cache of gamochas the hand-made scarf the Assamese present you in greeting and respect much like the Sikh siropa piles up Mahanta admits he is in trouble this time But the important thing is what he rues: that the AGP and the BJP failed to join hands That “our” vote base is the same and will now be divided This is not the philosophy on which the Assam movement and the AGP were set up This is exactly why the BJP has now taken it away from the AGP Dinesh Goswami would have today spanked Prafulla Mahanta Election 2014 will mark the demise of the AGP and the rise of the BJP as the second political force in the state whether it wins many seats or not Where the secessionists (ULFA) failed earlier the RSS-BJP have now succeeded So many of the key AGP leaders disillusioned with Mahanta and his intrigues and also drawn by the “Mother” ideology are now in the BJP Its new state president Sarbananda Sonwal used to be effectively Mahanta’s deputy after Phukan He is now the BJP’s candidate in North Lakhimpur against Ranee Narah Central MoS and wife of Bharat Narah once a fiery AASU vice-president and its tribal face and then its first defector albeit to the Congress They are a wonderful couple even if the conspiracy folklore would tell you of how Hiteswar Saikia trapped Narah by “getting him to fall in love” with Jahanara Begum a rather striking member of the Assam women’s cricket team Most of the rest however were bagged by the BJP Bejoya Chakravarty its sitting Guwahati MP was an AGP leading light as well The AGP’s failure in making a deal will devastate its vote bank in this election Muslims and Bengalis will never trust it and the Assamese Hindus who backed it have a less cluttered choice in saffron Prodyut Bora the BJP’s young (39) state unit vice-chief and one of the most articulate younger politicians you’d meet anywhere however insists that it was the BJP’s decision to go it alone inspired by the RSS Bora tells you he is the first IIM graduate (IIM Ahmedabad actually) to become a full-time politician has never been in the RSS or politics of any kind But the BJP attracts him with its new ideas and he gives the RSS the credit for having decided to risk losing a couple of seats but not going with Mahanta who “continues to betray you all the time” “The kind of election 2014 is” he says super-confidently “a couple of seats less will not stop Narendra bhai from becoming prime minister But we will rise as the second party of Assam” He may sometimes sound much too organised and measured for a BJP politician and frankly grievance-free for a young Assamese But my image of the young Assamese is an old outdated one Prodyut represents the changing new Assamese who venture out all over the world make a mark and lead this new march from insecurity to opportunity Bora could draw inspiration from somebody equally young if exactly on the other side of the goal If Himanta Biswa Sarma the health and education minister the most visible and voluble face of the Congress and a dissident leader against Gogoi speaks English still with the distinctive Asomiya tone it is because he went to Cotton College the local St Stephen’s but not quite IIM Ahmedabad He is a most brilliant story-teller and among the most delightfully candid and articulate politicians you will find We chat over a lunch of fish tenga (tenga for sour as the Assamese prefer one of the dishes at each meal to be) and reminds me that Assamese cuisine is amongst the least discovered and most underrated Beyond that he would prefer to be totally off the record But I arm-twist him into letting me use some parts of our conversation and also to leave it to me to decide which ones So let me choose the one I thought might throw him most off-balance “Isn’t it true that you were a member of the ULFA” I ask “At my age sir who wasn’t” Bland denials are not for Himanta who besides being the most prominent young Congressman in the state has the added advantage of owning a formidable local media empire including a premier Assamese TV channel Or okay it is his wife who owns them he would remind you “I was a member of the AASU from class five in school At Cotton College I was a member of the 32-strong executive Twenty-nine of them joined the ULFA as that was the fashion those days I did not but supported it from outside I won’t deny that… I can’t actually…” He speaks with a near-reckless abandon that would suggest Arnab Goswami isn’t just one Assamese of a kind “Then how did you come to politics and the Congress” I ask “Because Hiteswar Saikia was coming to our college He was then treated like an outcast by Assam students But I realised that if the college had to get something it needed the chief minister’s goodwill” he said I am not sure you would find that explanation good enough and he knows it but couldn’t care less He loves politics and if he was ever in the ULFA he was in the wrong place Besides age there is one more thing in common between him and the fastest rising young BJP-ite Prodyut Bora: he also went “out” for education to the Delhi School of Social Work in this case This new willingness to go out and compete rather than stay back and sulk is the most significant writing on the Assamese wall today As it usually happens as a people reach out to the outside world their smaller neighbours get the confidence to reach out to them in turn This new Assamese cosmopolitanism has made Guwahati so much more welcome to tribals in the six other smaller states of the Northeast which together send fewer MPs (10) to the Lok Sabha as Assam (14) The fastest growing businesses in Guwahati are private hospitals education and most touchingly paying guest accommodation for girls as tribals come here seeking medical aid education and professional training This is what you read on the walls wherever you look There are hospitals and schools coming up everywhere even one residential school Brahmaputra Academy under construction on the highway between Guwahati and Nellie which became infamous for the massacre on a February morning in 1983 that left 3500 Muslims dead in a few hours In Uzan (upstream) Bazar overlooking the river which is always the cultural and philosophical Assamese heart of Guwahati I see a row of paying guest hostels for girls with names like “Sahayika” (probably because so many tribal girls come to train at air hostess and hospitality academies) “Mili Juli” (can there be a more apt tribute to the Northeast’s diversity) and somewhat more conventional “Devi” No visit to Assam is complete for me without knocking on the doors of two sets of my my most wonderful friends for life Pradip and Bonty Bhuyan who gave up lucrative businesses to set up the Faculty High School one of the state’s finest schools on the north bank of the Brahmaputra in front of the IIT and Vasant and Kiran Bhuyan Kiran works at a bank and Vasant teaches physics to girls at Handique College He was an advisor to the AASU in the days of the movement and is among just a handful of fellow-travellers who drew no gains at all for themselves once their boys came into power He is disappointed with the way the AGP has gone but not disillusioned With friends he has also not just set up a school but developed a whole new concept of Jatiya Bidyalays Before you get any ideas Jatiya does not mean local or ethnic but national These are Assamese medium schools that teach English from the very beginning More than 12700 boys and girls study at his trust-run Assam Jatiya Bidyalay at Noonmati on Guwahati’s outskirts better known for its tiny refinery At the entrance I catch hold of a class 7 boy with a T-shirt reading “I know Life’s a Bitch… but” and then in Assamese “baaki bhalo (Is the rest okay)” You can’t ask for a better illustration for the Jatiya Bidyalay model which is now a rage in the state is being franchised successfully and has even been supported by contributions from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and earlier Kuldip Nayar with their MPLADS funds Across the river at the Bhuyans’ more classic public school that attracts students from all over the Northeast you find posters that tell you “the more you speak English the better you become” and “speaking in English makes you confident and smart” If the biggest change in Assam today is this rising confidence that comes from cosmopolitanism look above the walls Along the Guwahati-Shillong Road that bisects the city shopping malls and office towers buzz through the day Above them loom the inevitable hoardings and a very large number of them have Narendra Modi looking down at you He has no competition in this election it seems at

Beijing’s three-point proposal on Ukraine offers a way out of the re-emerging confrontation between Russia and the West in the middle of Europe For one China called for the early establishment of an “international coordination mechanism” to explore a political settlement to the crisis Quite clearly such a mechanism would take the issue out of the Russia-West equation and enhance China’s own weight in the management of the crisis Second China has called for an international financial package that will help Ukraine overcome its current economic woes Beijing’s empathy for the people of Ukraine fits in nicely with China’s growing investments in the country Finally China is urging both Russia and the West to refrain from further actions — an early Russian decision to annex Crimea or

more offensive — than before It gave us a chance to assess David CH’s hair growth and development: Saw photographs/ videos of him with sleeked back short back and sides long combed back and sides

Pakistani state in the 26/11terrorist attack Once all the Indians had agreed with one another on this retired Colonel Farooqui and one Brigadier Ali from Pakistan were asked for opinions The colonel promptly questioned Headley’s trustworthiness — “you always assess the quality of the informer…” He was immediately interrupted by Shivshankar Whereupon an incensed Brigadier Ali began to yell: “You are a liar you are supporting criminals you tell lies to your nation Headley is a drug addict…” Whereupon Seshadri Chari (BJP) said that we’d listened to “this nonsense for long enough” Ali ineffectually repeated “You are a liar” and was interrupted by General Bakshi who pleaded for rational arguments Chari smirked: Rationality from them Pah (or words to that effect) Emboldened by such rudeness Shivshankar questioned the Pakistanis’ “decency” and Brigadier Ali’s “drink” schedule — by which he didn’t mean orange juice The Pakistani guests yelled that they were not being given a fair chance to speak Shivshankar advised them repeatedly to “calm down” to stop this “silly trite nonsense… don’t lecture us don’t talk rubbish” He then muted the volume so we could no longer hear them
