From the Louisville Courier-Journal:

Cuban community plans rally at NuLu restaurant in response to Black Lives Matter demands
Bailey Loosemore
Louisville Courier Journal

Members of Louisville’s Cuban community plan to gather Sunday in support of a NuLu restaurant owner who says he was threatened by Black Lives Matter protesters during a recent demonstration.

Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.

Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them “mafia tactics” used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street.

“There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in his Facebook post. “… All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?”

More: ‘Mafia tactics’ or ‘legitimate’ demands? NuLu businesses respond to protesters

According to a press release, members of the city’s Cuban community will meet outside the NuLu restaurant at 4 p.m. Sunday to support the immigrant-owned business, which “has been subject to vandalism and extortion in recent days.”

The release states that La Bodeguita de Mima was forced to close July 24 during a demonstration that shut down East Market Street, at which several protesters presented Martinez with the list of demands and said he “better put the letter on the door so your business is not f*cked with.”

The restaurant remained closed the next two days because “management and staff were concerned about safety,” according to the release. “30+ staff members (mostly immigrants) were unable to earn a paycheck.”

On Thursday, a small group of protesters returned to the restaurant after seeing Martinez’s post about the demands on Facebook. While there, one protester smashed a flower pot outside the business, while the rest spoke with Martinez and other employees about why the demands are needed.

The demands and an attached contract, which were created by local organizers and activists, ask NuLu business owners to:

Adequately represent the Black population of Louisville by having a minimum of 23% Black staff;
Purchase a minimum of 23% inventory from Black retailers or make a recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to a local Black nonprofit or organization;
Require diversity and inclusion training for all staff members on a bi-annual basis;
And display a visible sign that increases awareness and shows support for the reparations movement.
Phelix Crittenden, an activist who works with Black Lives Matter Louisville, said the demands and related “NuLu social justice health and wellness ratings” were not meant to be a threat but were instead intended to start a conversation with owners about how their businesses can better reflect and support Black people.

Crittenden, who also founded the organization Blacks Organizing Strategic Success, said several NuLu business owners have volunteered to sign the contract created by the protesters and are open to discussing their roles in the gentrification of the area, which has undergone hundreds of millions of dollars in development in recent years.

At the root of the protesters’ demands is the request that business owners acknowledge the harm brought on Black residents when they were displaced from NuLu and the adjoining Phoenix Hill neighborhood during the demolition of the Clarksdale housing project in the early 2000s.

The 65-year-old complex, which abutted NuLu on Jefferson Street, was torn down in 2004 and replaced with mixed-income housing that became known as Liberty Green.

According to a 2009 Courier Journal article, just 41 of the roughly 635 families who’d been displaced at Clarksdale returned to the new development.

“NuLu is flourishing,” Crittenden said. “To see that literal line in the sand, as soon as you cross the street, it’s very disturbing. NuLu doesn’t reflect the community they sit in and claim to incorporate and serve.”

The gentrifiers must have trucked in tons of suburban Magic Dirt to cover up all that urban Tragic Dirt.

    It is. If you remember the Madison statue protests, those were preceded by the (lawful) arrest of a black male in the daytime. He was arrested for using a bullhorn and baseball bat to shutdown a local restaurant’s lunch. That restaurant had not paid BLM’s extortion demand which several other businesses had paid. These idiots even posted about it on social media.

    Even though the ultra liberal local DA declined to press charges, the feds stepped in and charged him with extortion which carries something like a 10 year sentence at the federal level.

    Is there a way for both sides to lose in this one? "Immigrants" is certainly short for illegal immigrants. Who knew there was a Cuban Community in Louisville, Kentucky, and what good does that do America? Any complaints about gentrification are usually complaints about higher property taxes. In this case, it's been 16 years. If you can't save for a downpayment to live in the new Liberty Green, than that's not anyone else's but your own problems.

    It's most definitely a protection racket, but ICE ought to be running this show, not lazy black BLM thugs.

    Or do the ethnic cleansing that the White former majority did not do. In some places Mexicans have already done that. Compton CA for example.

    Whites no longer a majority will still be still a sizable fraction. African Americans will be as much of a minority as ever.

    At that point it may become apparent that the racial divide isn't White versus "people of color", but African Americans versus all others.

    > Once again someone wants to “start a conversation, ” and we know how that goes.

    Phelix Crittenden's and BLM's BOSSy conversation isn't new. Vaclav Havel penned The Power of the Powerless 42 years ago. Havel might have been a bit perturbed, had he known that his essay would serve as a playbook, rather than as an explanation of principled dissent. Here is Part III:


    The manager of a fruit-and-vegetable shop places in his window, among the onions and carrots, the slogan: "Workers of the world, unite!" Why does he do it? What is he trying to communicate to the world? Is he genuinely enthusiastic about the idea of unity among the workers of the world? Is his enthusiasm so great that he feels an irrepressible impulse to acquaint the public with his ideals? Has he really given more than a moment's thought to how such a unification might occur and what it would mean?
     

    I think it can safely be assumed that the overwhelming majority of shopkeepers never think about the slogans they put in their windows, nor do they use them to express their real opinions. That poster was delivered to our greengrocer from the enterprise headquarters along with the onions and carrots. He put them all into the window simply because it has been done that way for years, because everyone does it, and because that is the way it has to be. If he were to refuse, there could be trouble. He could be reproached for not having the proper decoration in his window; someone might even accuse him of disloyalty. He does it because these things must be done if one is to get along in life. It is one of the thousands of details that guarantee him a relatively tranquil life "in harmony with society," as they say.

    Obviously the greengrocer is indifferent to the semantic content of the slogan on exhibit; he does not put the slogan in his window from any personal desire to acquaint the public with the ideal it expresses. This, of course, does not mean that his action has no motive or significance at all, or that the slogan communicates nothing to anyone. The slogan is really a sign, and as such it contains a subliminal but very definite message. Verbally, it might be expressed this way: "I, the greengrocer XY, live here and I know what I must do. I behave in the manner expected of me. I can be depended upon and am beyond reproach. I am obedient and therefore I have the right to be left in peace." This message, of course, has an addressee: it is directed above, to the greengrocer's superior, and at the same time it is a shield that protects the greengrocer from potential informers. The slogan's real meaning, therefore, is rooted firmly in the greengrocer's existence. It reflects his vital interests. But what are those vital interests?

    Let us take note: if the greengrocer had been instructed to display the slogan "I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient;' he would not be nearly as indifferent to its semantics, even though the statement would reflect the truth. The greengrocer would be embarrassed and ashamed to put such an unequivocal statement of his own degradation in the shop window, and quite naturally so, for he is a human being and thus has a sense of his own dignity. To overcome this complication, his expression of loyalty must take the form of a sign which, at least on its textual surface, indicates a level of disinterested conviction. It must allow the greengrocer to say, "What's wrong with the workers of the world uniting?" Thus the sign helps the greengrocer to conceal from himself the low foundations of his obedience, at the same time concealing the low foundations of power. It hides them behind the facade of something high. And that something is ideology.

  21. Back in Minneapolis: The Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) told residents they should “be prepared” to hand over their phones, wallets, and purses to robbers.

    The MPD has reported a 46 percent increase in carjackings and a 36 percent increase in robberies compared to this same time last year, according to WCCO.

    Police in the city’s Third Precinct alone have received more than 100 reports of robberies and 20 reports of carjackings in just the last month.

    Officials are now telling residents to be ready and willing to comply with the demands of criminals in an email sent to Third Precinct residents.

    “Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet,” the police said in their email, a copy of which was obtained by Alpha News. The email said citizens should listen to criminals and “do as they say.”

    The message warned that “some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and some threatened with a gun.”

    Blacks always have this idea that they did ALL the work in pre-Civil War America when the truth is that they did some of it but far from all of it.


    Walker was taken not only with those stories but with the history of the slave trade in America: Who cut the sugar cane? Who ground it down to syrup? Who bleached it? Who sacked it?
     
    She is half right, but only half. Cutting cane, manning the mill - that was indeed mostly slave work (with white overseers).

    However, sugar REFINING (turning raw sugar into the pure white sugar that you buy in the supermarket) was done in the North, near the point of consumption. That's exactly why that Domino sugar factory is in Brooklyn and not in Louisiana. "Raw sugar" in those days was not the nice stuff that you buy in the health food store nowadays but a crude product with dirt and twigs and such in it and had to undergo a refining process to make it clean and white and bacterially safe to eat. It was then bagged and distributed to the shelves of local grocers. The raw sugar would be shipped in from the South (or from Cuba or wherever) and melted down and purified and recrystallized in that very building she is standing in, by a skilled, free, white workforce. This involved considerable skill and technology and was not something that you would trust a bunch of Negroes to do. She is standing in the very building where that work was done but doesn't have the ability to understand what is before her very eyes.

    The ignorance and arrogance and blindness of blacks has no limit. As far as they are concerned, they built America, all of it.

    A lot of people on here might not even know who you are talking about, but this is a pretty big deal. Bethann McLaughlin is a White, lesbian science prof that heads #MeTooStem. If you go to the website, you can see on their front page that they proudly "Removed 12 Scientists from Grants" and "Barred 55 Individuals from Peer Review." In other words, the organization's sole purpose is to destroy the careers of men in academia they don't like.
    Her cosplay Native American account (sciencing_bi) went on for four years, and repeatedly tweeted out all of the racism and sexism "she" faced in academia. When Covid-19 hit, "she" naturally came down with it, becoming a so-called long hauler (someone who is plagued by symptoms long after the infection has left). Then Bethann killed "her" off. Maybe she got tired of the burden of carrying on a fake life. Whatever happened, it all quickly unraveled because everyone went looking for some mention of the professor at ASU that died of Covid-19.

  30. I’m staring to wonder about the real history of “Black Wall Street”

  31. I ended up on the restaurant’s Facebook page but none of the material quoted by the Courier-Journal was there. I did see that this is a new restaurant that hasn’t been open a month.

    I actually have a lot of sympathy for people living in gentrified neighborhoods. But this attempted stick-up job during the time of Covid-19 on what must be mostly just barely hanging on small businesses — if not dying — small businesses just seems cruel and the world’s worst timing. I went to one of the newspaper articles and a local gallery owner decided to give in right away. But is she even going to be in business in a few months? How many employees does she even have? One or two?

    How many local blacks can or want to prepare and serve Cuban food? How many locally owned black businesses are appropriate vendors for the small businesses of this neighborhood?

    I don’t think much of substance is going to come from this. I suppose the real question is what is BLM willing to do to get these businesses to sign this contract? I wish this restaurant good luck in maintaining its independence.

  33. I had heard about the congressional Democrat performance regarding Attorney General Barr but have finally actually heard excerpts from the excellent Town Hall Review, a one-hour sampler of the previous week in right wing radio. The excerpts are straight out of Monty Python. Nadler demands that Barr reject political stunts. Barr (an establishmentarian and not a Trump supporter) responds, appearing to grant Nadler’s demand — but he never finishes, because Nadler cuts him off to issue a non-interrogative “final thought” about how violence is bad. You really need to hear this, it’s predictable but completely incredible.

    Agreed.

    Is there a way for both sides to lose in this one? “Immigrants” is certainly short for illegal immigrants. Who knew there was a Cuban Community in Louisville, Kentucky, and what good does that do America? Any complaints about gentrification are usually complaints about higher property taxes. In this case, it’s been 16 years. If you can’t save for a downpayment to live in the new Liberty Green, than that’s not anyone else’s but your own problems.

    It’s most definitely a protection racket, but ICE ought to be running this show, not lazy black BLM thugs.

    It is. If you remember the Madison statue protests, those were preceded by the (lawful) arrest of a black male in the daytime. He was arrested for using a bullhorn and baseball bat to shutdown a local restaurant’s lunch. That restaurant had not paid BLM’s extortion demand which several other businesses had paid.

    Phelix Crittenden’s and BLM’s BOSSy conversation isn’t new. Vaclav Havel penned The Power of the Powerless 42 years ago. Havel might have been a bit perturbed, had he known that his essay would serve as a playbook, rather than as an explanation of principled dissent. Here is Part III:

    The manager of a fruit-and-vegetable shop places in his window, among the onions and carrots, the slogan: “Workers of the world, unite!” Why does he do it? What is he trying to communicate to the world? Is he genuinely enthusiastic about the idea of unity among the workers of the world? Is his enthusiasm so great that he feels an irrepressible impulse to acquaint the public with his ideals? Has he really given more than a moment’s thought to how such a unification might occur and what it would mean?

    [MORE]

    I think it can safely be assumed that the overwhelming majority of shopkeepers never think about the slogans they put in their windows, nor do they use them to express their real opinions. That poster was delivered to our greengrocer from the enterprise headquarters along with the onions and carrots. He put them all into the window simply because it has been done that way for years, because everyone does it, and because that is the way it has to be. If he were to refuse, there could be trouble. He could be reproached for not having the proper decoration in his window; someone might even accuse him of disloyalty. He does it because these things must be done if one is to get along in life. It is one of the thousands of details that guarantee him a relatively tranquil life “in harmony with society,” as they say.

    Obviously the greengrocer is indifferent to the semantic content of the slogan on exhibit; he does not put the slogan in his window from any personal desire to acquaint the public with the ideal it expresses. This, of course, does not mean that his action has no motive or significance at all, or that the slogan communicates nothing to anyone. The slogan is really a sign, and as such it contains a subliminal but very definite message. Verbally, it might be expressed this way: “I, the greengrocer XY, live here and I know what I must do. I behave in the manner expected of me. I can be depended upon and am beyond reproach. I am obedient and therefore I have the right to be left in peace.” This message, of course, has an addressee: it is directed above, to the greengrocer’s superior, and at the same time it is a shield that protects the greengrocer from potential informers. The slogan’s real meaning, therefore, is rooted firmly in the greengrocer’s existence. It reflects his vital interests. But what are those vital interests?

    Let us take note: if the greengrocer had been instructed to display the slogan “I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient;’ he would not be nearly as indifferent to its semantics, even though the statement would reflect the truth. The greengrocer would be embarrassed and ashamed to put such an unequivocal statement of his own degradation in the shop window, and quite naturally so, for he is a human being and thus has a sense of his own dignity. To overcome this complication, his expression of loyalty must take the form of a sign which, at least on its textual surface, indicates a level of disinterested conviction. It must allow the greengrocer to say, “What’s wrong with the workers of the world uniting?” Thus the sign helps the greengrocer to conceal from himself the low foundations of his obedience, at the same time concealing the low foundations of power. It hides them behind the facade of something high. And that something is ideology.

    … only to find that they’re going to be fed on by the descendants of the African slaves …

    Or do the ethnic cleansing that the White former majority did not do. In some places Mexicans have already done that. Compton CA for example.

    Whites no longer a majority will still be still a sizable fraction. African Americans will be as much of a minority as ever.

    At that point it may become apparent that the racial divide isn’t White versus “people of color”, but African Americans versus all others.

    I was looking at your pictures of statues being defaced and then it hit me. What if they’re replaced with actually vulgar and racist statues that are constructed by blacks? But nobody can say anything because the artists are black.

    How messed up would that be? You’d have intentionally racist statues that are meant to empower anti-racism and/or racism against whites. However, they’re actually demeaning to blacks and can be seen to exhibit white supremacy. But it would be black artists who built and placed them there in the first place. It’ll be an overall complex joke.

    Blacks always have this idea that they did ALL the work in pre-Civil War America when the truth is that they did some of it but far from all of it.

    Walker was taken not only with those stories but with the history of the slave trade in America: Who cut the sugar cane? Who ground it down to syrup? Who bleached it? Who sacked it?

    She is half right, but only half. Cutting cane, manning the mill – that was indeed mostly slave work (with white overseers).

    However, sugar REFINING (turning raw sugar into the pure white sugar that you buy in the supermarket) was done in the North, near the point of consumption. That’s exactly why that Domino sugar factory is in Brooklyn and not in Louisiana. “Raw sugar” in those days was not the nice stuff that you buy in the health food store nowadays but a crude product with dirt and twigs and such in it and had to undergo a refining process to make it clean and white and bacterially safe to eat. It was then bagged and distributed to the shelves of local grocers. The raw sugar would be shipped in from the South (or from Cuba or wherever) and melted down and purified and recrystallized in that very building she is standing in, by a skilled, free, white workforce. This involved considerable skill and technology and was not something that you would trust a bunch of Negroes to do. She is standing in the very building where that work was done but doesn’t have the ability to understand what is before her very eyes.

    > Once again someone wants to “start a conversation, ” and we know how that goes.

    Phelix Crittenden's and BLM's BOSSy conversation isn't new. Vaclav Havel penned The Power of the Powerless 42 years ago. Havel might have been a bit perturbed, had he known that his essay would serve as a playbook, rather than as an explanation of principled dissent. Here is Part III:


    The manager of a fruit-and-vegetable shop places in his window, among the onions and carrots, the slogan: "Workers of the world, unite!" Why does he do it? What is he trying to communicate to the world? Is he genuinely enthusiastic about the idea of unity among the workers of the world? Is his enthusiasm so great that he feels an irrepressible impulse to acquaint the public with his ideals? Has he really given more than a moment's thought to how such a unification might occur and what it would mean?
     

    I think it can safely be assumed that the overwhelming majority of shopkeepers never think about the slogans they put in their windows, nor do they use them to express their real opinions. That poster was delivered to our greengrocer from the enterprise headquarters along with the onions and carrots. He put them all into the window simply because it has been done that way for years, because everyone does it, and because that is the way it has to be. If he were to refuse, there could be trouble. He could be reproached for not having the proper decoration in his window; someone might even accuse him of disloyalty. He does it because these things must be done if one is to get along in life. It is one of the thousands of details that guarantee him a relatively tranquil life "in harmony with society," as they say.

    Obviously the greengrocer is indifferent to the semantic content of the slogan on exhibit; he does not put the slogan in his window from any personal desire to acquaint the public with the ideal it expresses. This, of course, does not mean that his action has no motive or significance at all, or that the slogan communicates nothing to anyone. The slogan is really a sign, and as such it contains a subliminal but very definite message. Verbally, it might be expressed this way: "I, the greengrocer XY, live here and I know what I must do. I behave in the manner expected of me. I can be depended upon and am beyond reproach. I am obedient and therefore I have the right to be left in peace." This message, of course, has an addressee: it is directed above, to the greengrocer's superior, and at the same time it is a shield that protects the greengrocer from potential informers. The slogan's real meaning, therefore, is rooted firmly in the greengrocer's existence. It reflects his vital interests. But what are those vital interests?

    Let us take note: if the greengrocer had been instructed to display the slogan "I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient;' he would not be nearly as indifferent to its semantics, even though the statement would reflect the truth. The greengrocer would be embarrassed and ashamed to put such an unequivocal statement of his own degradation in the shop window, and quite naturally so, for he is a human being and thus has a sense of his own dignity. To overcome this complication, his expression of loyalty must take the form of a sign which, at least on its textual surface, indicates a level of disinterested conviction. It must allow the greengrocer to say, "What's wrong with the workers of the world uniting?" Thus the sign helps the greengrocer to conceal from himself the low foundations of his obedience, at the same time concealing the low foundations of power. It hides them behind the facade of something high. And that something is ideology.

    As 3rd world countries have become more developed they have their own demand for white sugar and so raw sugar mills nowadays are often combined with "white end" mills so that white (or almost white) sugar leaves the mill . There are also modern technologies to produce "blanco direto" sugar directly from the cane juice and completely skipping the step of making raw sugar and then remelting and refining it. To the extent that they produce more of this stuff than there is local demand, I'm sure it's economical to export - you have lower labor costs in (for example) Mexico and there are energy savings in not having to process the same product twice.

    At one time, places like Mexico that were sugar producers existed on a whole different (more primitive) technological level than Western sugar consuming countries like the US (and the US South was very different than the North in its level of industrialization) but as time has gone on these differences have lessened. Agricultural producers, even in the 3rd world, have caught on that processed items sell for far more than raw agricultural products and have sought to bring the profitable final processing steps closer to the point of production.

    “This issue should be between Dr. McLaughlin and Vanderbilt University,” Galli wrote. “The fact that my name keeps resurfacing over the internet connected with Dr. McLaughlin’s tenure process is unconscionable, hurtful and unjust. I left Vanderbilt in 2017.”

    Because of sugar tariffs, production of a lot of hard candy (which is mostly sugar) has shifted to Mexico. Apparently there are tariffs on sugar but not on candy so if you make the candy in Mexico it is cheaper.

    The US price of sugar is much higher than the world price, not so much to protect American sugar producers (though some cane is grown in Florida - sugar production in Hawaii is mostly extinct) but to protect Iowa corn farmers and ADM because the high price of sugar props up production of high fructose corn syrup. If we paid the world price for sugar there would be no reason to make an untaxed sugar substitute out of corn.

    Perhaps coincidentally, the switch from cane sugar to corn syrup in soda, etc. was accompanied by the average American gaining 25 lbs. Chemically, fructose and sucrose are not that different but maybe our bodies are not really equipped to properly metabolize frankenfoods like hydrogenated oils and corn starch that has been hydrolyzed with hydrochloric acid and cracked with enzymes until the starch has been broken down into fructose. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.

    On Granville St here in Vancouver there's a little vintage video game shop owned this old mystery-meat dude. He knows his stuff and has a pretty good collection (yes you will be paying $110 for an original Super Nintendo Secret of Mana)... and even he has a hand-written "Black Lives Matter" sign in the window. I immediately thought of Havel's writing when I saw it.

    The Shangri-La was completed some time ago. It's even worse now.

    The COVID lockdown ceded the streets to the homeless, and Granville is now basically an extension of Main & Hastings. The government shut down the tent city at Oppenheimer Park and moved the majority of the squatters into the Howard Johnson Hotel at Granville and Davie. On Saturday I was"taking a lap" down Granville with my daughter and we passed a little heroin party on the sidewalk with a bunch of ghouls completely nodded-off with one just putting the needle in his arm as we walked by.

    What a robust empire!

Not reservation Indians, blacks won’t even fall that far……. or based on decaying urban areas, will they?

    American blacks who are the descendants of slaves are being overwhelmed by the new immigrants. I feel sorry for them. I feel we do owe them something. When I hear of achievement by a black person I hope it is a descendant of slaves but often it is a foreigner at an American college or a Carribean or African immigrant.

    My sense is though that American blacks who are the descendants don't realize that they're not "THE minority" anymore. They don't realize how they were betrayed by black politicians who thought that having lots more nonwhites in America would help them. No, having lots more nonwhites in America has hurt them. Even now they are not ready to oppose future immigration. What a tragedy for them.

    The migrants may not learn until it’s too late, given that much of what they know about the USA comes from television.

    There may be some whose compatriots already in country warn them, but remember that our migrants are increasingly coming from the poorest places on earth so even part-time slavery here will be better than what they had.

    This won’t stop until the USA is one of the worst countries on earth, and the paroxcyms all around us today are the early stages of the descent.

And regardless of purported skin color, they are a different people who created a different culture. Miami is not an 'American' city; it is a minimally functional Latin American one.

    They are not my people. They do not possess the inherent right to decide they want to occupy lands that were built and occupied by other people. Let them be ambitious and create businesses in their own countries to serve their own communities, rather than move wholesale to countries created and occupied by White Europeans.

    Because of sugar tariffs, production of a lot of hard candy (which is mostly sugar) has shifted to Mexico. Apparently there are tariffs on sugar but not on candy so if you make the candy in Mexico it is cheaper.

    The US price of sugar is much higher than the world price, not so much to protect American sugar producers (though some cane is grown in Florida – sugar production in Hawaii is mostly extinct) but to protect Iowa corn farmers and ADM because the high price of sugar props up production of high fructose corn syrup. If we paid the world price for sugar there would be no reason to make an untaxed sugar substitute out of corn.

    Perhaps coincidentally, the switch from cane sugar to corn syrup in soda, etc. was accompanied by the average American gaining 25 lbs. Chemically, fructose and sucrose are not that different but maybe our bodies are not really equipped to properly metabolize frankenfoods like hydrogenated oils and corn starch that has been hydrolyzed with hydrochloric acid and cracked with enzymes until the starch has been broken down into fructose. Or maybe it’s just a coincidence.
