Former Taiwanese President Chen Shui-bian released on bail

Saturday, December 13, 2008

Taiwan’s former President, Chen Shui-bian (???), has been conditionally released on bail, some ten hours after he was indicted for corruption. Speaking to media at the Taipei District Court, he said: “I want to thank my lawyers, members of the Democratic Progressive Party and my supporters who have given me huge encouragement. I am grateful to those who cared for, supported and looked after me so I could get through the hardest and loneliest 32 days of my life in prison.” He earns the historical distinction of being the first ex-president of the Republic of China to be indicted for criminal offenses and could suffer life imprisonment if convicted.

Along with 13 other family members and close associates, including his wheelchair-bound wife, son Chen Chih-Chung, and daughter-in-law Huang Jui-ching, Chen was indicted Friday on charges of embezzling government funds and laundering money or ill-gotten bribes. The panel of three judges ruled he should appear at future court hearings and must not leave the country nor change his address.

Prosecutor Lin Che-hui accused Chen of having “embezzled 104 million New Taiwan dollars ($3.12 million) from a special presidential fund, and received bribes of $11.73 million in connection with a government land procurement deal and a separate construction project; the damning piece of evidence was the presence of NT$740 million ($22.2 million) in cash stashed in a Taipei bank safety vault held by the Chens.” Yuanta Securities director Tu Li-ping said, “she hand delivered NT$200 million ($6 million) in cash to Wu at the presidential residence in 2006 on behalf of executives of an affiliated bank; the money was an incentive for Wu not to interfere with a merger the bank was pursuing.”

Chen insists on his innocence. Contradicting the 100-page indictment, he said that “the $21 million his wife wired to their son’s Swiss bank accounts came from leftover campaign donations. Taiwanese law permits such donations to be kept by political candidates.”

In 1975, Chen married Wu Shu-chen (???), the daughter of a physician. The couple has a daughter, Chen Hsing-yu (???), who is a dentist; and a son, Chen Chih-Chung (???), who, having received a law degree in Taiwan, studied at and graduated with a M.A. degree from the University of California in 2005.

In November 2006, Chen’s wife Wu Shu-chen and three other high ranking officials of the Presidential Office were indicted for corruption, charged with misappropriating NT$14.8 million (USD$450,000) of government funds using falsified documents. Due to the protection from the Constitution against prosecution of the sitting president, Chen could not be prosecuted until he left office, and he was not indicted, but was alleged to be an accomplice on his wife’s indictment.

Chen’s term as President of the Republic of China ended in May 2008. Immediately thereafter, prosecutors began investigating him regarding allegations that he misused his discretionary “state affairs fund”, as well as his connection to the first family’s money-laundering activities. He resigned from the Democratic Progressive Party on August 15, 2008, one day after admitting to falsifying past campaign expenses and wiring campaign contributions to overseas accounts.

In November 2008, Chen was escorted by a security staff, into the Taipei prosecutor’s office for questioning. After 6 hours, he left the Supreme Court prosecutor`s office in handcuffs, was arrested and detained. The charges each carry a minimum penalty of 5 years imprisonment. Following a 6 day hunger strike while in detention, Chen collapsed and was rushed to Taipei’s Far Eastern Memorial Hospital, where he was later transferred to Panchiao Hospital for force-feeding. Despite Chen’s lack of interest in appealing, his lawyer Cheng Wen-long completed a motion seeking his release from detention and filed a notice of appeal of the court’s decision, along with a petition for constitutional interpretation to restrain actions violative of the Constitution.

Prosecutor General, Chen Tsung-ming said that after Chen’s case had been removed to the Taipei Local Court, he would re-file a petition for Chen’s detention. Chen and the main opposition DPP have accused President Ma Ying-jeou‘s administration of “using the scandals to plan a political plot against the former leader.”

Meanwhile, The Straits Times reported that “prosecutors are to investigate former President of the Republic of China and Chairman of the Kuomintang from 1988 to 2000, Lee Teng-hui on suspicion of money laundering, based on allegations made by Chen during his own questioning recently that his predecessor transferred large funds abroad through dummy accounts.” Mr. Lee angrily denied the accusations concerning “a suspected transfer of 50 million Taiwan dollars (US$2.26 million) to Mr Lee from a local stock investor via overseas dummy accounts.” Charges also included transactions made at the end of Lee’s tenure and at the beginning of Chen’s term, including “one billion Taiwan dollars that had been wired to various countries including Singapore.”

The China Post calls for calm and urges fair trial for Chen. “All the people should wait patiently for the outcome of the trial … They shouldn’t do anything to influence the judges in any way, because the rule of law in Taiwan is at stake. We should show the world that Taiwan is a democracy where anybody who commits a crime, be he a man on the street or a former president, is duly punished.” it said.

Segmenting The Senior Market

Posted on December 3, 2021December 4, 2021Categories Accounting Firm

By Richard Hamer And Paul Riedesel, PhD

What is meant by market segmentation?

Definition. Market segments consist of groups of people or organizations that are similar in terms of how they respond to a particular marketing mix or in other ways that are meaningful for marketing planning purposes.

The entire field of market segmentation is based on this idea, that consumers have differing needs. They will find value in different products. They will respond differently to marketing communications. They will gravitate toward different price points.

Because of this, businesses operate more efficiently if they can act on those differences. A business that tries to offer a single undifferentiated product with generic marketing support will always lose out to more nimble competitors who have specific targets and know how to serve them.

We often work for health plans. In the Medicare Part D world for instance, health plans are struggling to make sense out of new regulations while meeting very tight deadlines. But todays difficulties are going to give way to a market where segmentation will be of great benefit because mass marketing will not work.

Which Segment?

It is obvious that all competitors cannot target the same segment and succeed. A common mistake is to assume that you must focus on the “heavy buyers” who, in reality, are often not the most profitable group. For example, a consulting firm may decide to forego targeting Fortune 500 firms that are fiercely contested by the Big Four accounting/consulting firms and instead pursue middle market firms. “Sub prime” lenders and credit card companies know exactly who their prospects are, and do not bother advertising in Money magazine or funding public television shows. Part D players may find market niches among seniors with, for example, private Medigap policies and specific interests or needs that the plan can address.

For health plans, market segmentation is not common. Part of this is due to health plan cultures developed to serve large employer-based health plans and retirees. But Medicare Part D is an unprecedented public-private effort to create a consumer market. And Medicare’s Part D program is just one element of a far reaching effort to use private health plans to control Medicare expenses. We believe the market understanding developed through segmentation will serve in a variety of ways.

Identifying and targeting one or a few segments instead of the entire market allows the firm to use its resources more effectively. Market segmentation means products and messages more aligned with the needs of selected consumers.

Researching Segments

Some type of systematic research is required as a foundation for market segmentation. Most often, this research entails a sample survey which should be done by research experts.

Segmentation research addresses a set of fundamental questions:

1. How many segments are there?

2. How large is each segment?

3. How do you define the segments?

4. How do you describe the segments?

Segments are typically defined by dimensions such as:

Behaviorsuch as the frequency of purchasing, total spending, or the mixture of stores shopped (switching, investigating, comparing, delegating decisions), or

Characteristicssuch as geodemographics for consumers or SIC codes for businesses (health conditions, subsidy status, current coverage status), or

Attitudessuch as financial sophistication, fashion orientation, or disposition to adopt new technologies (interest, optimism).

The variables that are used to define the segments are called the “basis.” The basis is chosen in light of how the segmentation will be applied. Direct marketers, for instance, carefully dissect their databases in terms of purchase behavior. Other segments are based on consumers motivations and concerns. Marketer choose this because motivations and concerns are what cause consumers to act on an offer.

We dont think that there is only one “correct” way of doing segmentation research, nor that there is a single set of segments waiting to be “discovered.” While the analysis needs to employ objective statistical methods, any number of judgments, preferences and practical considerations go into the design of the process and the final determination of the segment structure. The same dataset can yield different segments.

Market segmentation spotlights opportunities for health plans to improve marketing and sales, staff training, customer service, new enrollee intake, business planning, and public relations. It will be used by health plans that want to assure they emerge from this period of dramatic Medicare market change as a coverage provider of relevance and viability. Part of this means achieving sales and marketing goals. Part of this means establishing a market position where consumers think of you as youd like them to think of you.

Compared to other forms of marketing research, the sample sizes for segmentation studies tend to be large. The simple reason is that you need to be able to profile multiple sub-samples (the segments) with a high degree of precision, rather than just the total sample. It is unusual to use fewer than 500 and not unusual to use 2,000-3,000.

Analysis

The most complex and opaque part of segmentation research is the derivation of the segmentsthat literally means dividing the sample into a small number of exclusive clusters. This is almost always done by applying some form of statistical cluster analysis. The analyst will typically try several different cluster “solutions.” While there are objective statistical measures of the quality of a cluster solution, they are no more important than informed managerial judgment. Researchers oftenl offer two or three possibilities to discuss.

The “right” number of segments is subjective, but in practice companies tend to settle on four to eight segments. In a diverse, complex, and lucrative category more might be called for.

Agreeing on the number of segments, as well as the labels that will be attached to them, always requires careful study of their full profiles. While the segments may be defined with one class of basis variables (e.g. attitudes about fashion and shopping), you always need to describe the segments in terms of other variables (e.g. demographics, spending, media preferences, preferred brands) that were not part of the definition of the segments.

Application

An important deliverable from most segmentation research is a tool for classifying other consumers into the segments. This could be a formula where by asking a small number of questions you can place a “new” consumer in one of the segments. It could be a set of logical rules [“if combined account balances >$10,000 + have at least three accounts + non-mortgage debt

Conclusion

Market segmentation is a far-reaching strategy that can benefit players.

The underlying rationale is to use your resources more efficiently by serving consumer needs better. The mechanism is to treat the market as consisting of multiple segments with different needs, rather than as a mass market where “average” really suits no one very well.

The research requires a sample survey. It defines and describes segments from which the health plan can choose one or more targets. We believe players in the new Medicare market are especially ready to get more “bang for the buck” by more precisely meeting segments needs and by using marketing tools to which that segment will respond.

What Do Piling Contractors Do?

Posted on November 28, 2021November 29, 2021Categories Timber

By John Schofield

Perhaps now that you want to build a bigger home or want to improve your present office building, you will surely need somebody to help you do so. For sure, you will need some construction engineers, masons, carpenters, steel workers, and concrete specialists. But probably you do not know that there are some significant people you really need before you require all these people apart from those mentioned, to work on your construction. These people are the piling contractors. So called because of the kind of job they do, piling contractors are the people who are experts in making a building’s foundations, beams, base foundations, and other structures that are required before the structure is set.

Piling jobs are not easy jobs. These are actually groundwork that needs important measurements and calculations by professionals who erect foundations for the whole structure. If piling works are not perfect, any building will likely to collapse once a strong earthquake occurs. That is why it can be very costly to set up quality foundations because you need the best piling contractors for this job. Your property and the lives of the people who will occupy your building are always at stake if you opt for contractors that are not professional.

Maybe as the owner of the building you do not know what piling means in the construction business so as an orientation about piling works better read on this. Piling is a technique that is used by piling contractors in setting up solid foundations for structures such as giant establishments, tall buildings building, tall structures and any building that would be huge in its built. The piling contractors will drive their back hoe and bulldozers into the ground to make large hole for the foundations. Piles of wood will be driven and embedded on some points of the hole to form enclosures for the concrete. This will be followed by the laying of steel and the pouring of concrete to form foundations. This process is called the ‘laying of the foundations’.

It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? But it is not as simple as it seems because before the piling contractors do all those things there are so many factors that they must consider first. They have to calculate the size, capacity and scope of the project before doing anything. They also have to check on the condition of the soil even digging deeply into the soil to know the condition of the ground underneath. They also have to consider the space required for rigging before the piling process starts. Piling contractors always rely on deep foundation and if there is the need for improvement of the present piling, they transfer the load of the structure to the deeper, stronger layer of the ground so that the foundations can have a high bearing capacity and will be very sturdy to carry the load and support the whole structure.

Piling contractors always have the usual materials with them. These are composed of wood, steel, concrete, steel-precast, concreted piles, steel sheet piles, timber piles, columns, and so on. However, not only the piling contractors do all the work. Alongside them are the geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, area contractors, site fitters and foremen. Every one of them including the construction workers will be doing their individual job just to build a strong building. There would be lots of planning, designing, streamlining, digging, piling and everything that is within the construction field. Now that you know what piling contractors do, maybe it’s time to appreciate their contribution to where you are now. Just remember that they keep us safe while we are inside the structures they helped to create.

Negotiations for hijacked Saudi oil tanker begin

Posted on November 28, 2021November 29, 2021Categories Uncategorized

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Vela International Marine, the Saudi Arabian company that owns the MV Sirius Star oil tanker which was captured by pirates on November 15, has begun negotiations with the Somali pirates.

The Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al Faisal said that talks had begun, but he did not say whether a ransom would be paid. Vela International Marine, which is owned by state-owned Saudi Aramco, would only say it is “working toward [the crew’s] safe and speedy return.”

“We do not like to negotiate with pirates, terrorists or hijackers,” said Saud al Faisal in Rome, after speaking with Franco Frattini, the Foreign Minister of Italy.

Dubai-based television network Al Jazeera broadcast an audiotape of a man who said he was with the pirates. He identified himself as Farah Abd Jameh.

“Negotiators are located on board the ship and on land. Once they have agreed on the ransom, it will be taken in cash to the oil tanker. We assure the safety of the ship that carries the ransom. We will mechanically count the money and we have machines that can detect fake money,” the man said. He did not mention any specific amounts for the ransom.

We do not like to negotiate with pirates, terrorists or hijackers.

The British Foreign Office released a statement Wednesday which identified two of the crew as chief engineer Peter French and second officer James Grady. The rest of the 25-man crew are from Croatia (1), Poland (2), Philippines (19) and Saudi Arabia (1). They are all reported to be safe.

Foreign Secretary David Miliband said that the Royal Navy was coordinating a European response.

Dominique Montecer, the director of operations at GEOS Group, a corporate risk management firm, cast doubt on a military response.

“Everything is possible but it would take extraordinary means and organization, and the risk of an ecological disaster is very high. They are sitting on a bomb,” Montecer said.

“It’s certainly a very complex environment to work in — a Liberian-flagged vessel, owned by a Saudi company, in Somali waters, with so many different nationalities on board,” said Lt. Nate Christensen of the United States Navy when asked about the possibility of taking back the Sirius Star by force.

“Shipping companies are already making decisions not to go through the Gulf of Aden, and making the decision to take the much longer route around the south of Africa,” said Peter Hinchcliffe, marine director of the International Chamber of Shipping. “And with the increase in intensity of attacks, that is something that is going to be much more frequent. It’s adding let’s say an average of two weeks to the passage time.”

Since the capture of the Sirius Star, pirates in the Gulf of Aden have taken at least three other ships. These include a Chinese ship carrying wheat, a Greek bulk carrier, and a Thai fishing vessel.

The International Maritime Bureau reports that Somali pirates currently hold 14 ships along with an estimated 250 crew members. Since January, there have been over 30 hijackings in the area, while another 60 ships have been attacked.

Among the ships still held is the Ukrainian cargo ship MV Faina, which has a cargo of 33 Russian T-72 battle tanks, as well as other weapons. The Faina was hijacked on September 25.

Meanwhile, the Indian Navy has reported that it encountered and destroyed what it called a pirate “mother ship” on Tuesday. India dispatched frigate INS Tabar last month to protect its merchant shipping in the Gulf of Aden. The pirate vessel reportedly threatened the Indian frigate after it was hailed.

Several NATO members, as well as Russia, India and Malaysia have all sent warships to the region to protect merchant shipping in the area. The Combined Task Force 150, formed as a multinational coalition in the War on Terrorism, was restructured in 2006 to aid in anti-piracy efforts.

Suspect in model Jasmine Fiore’s murder found dead

Posted on November 26, 2021November 27, 2021Categories Uncategorized

Monday, August 24, 2009

Fugitive Ryan Jenkins was found dead in a motel room in Hope, Canada, about 150 kilometers from Vancouver. Police are still trying to determine how long he was at the Thunderbird Motel before he hanged himself.

The RCMP are now looking for an unidentified woman who helped Jenkins check himself into the motel last Thursday. She is described as an attractive blonde in her early 20’s and driving a tinted Chrysler PT Cruiser with Alberta plates.

Ryan Jenkins was wanted for the brutal murdering of his ex-wife, swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore. Her badly mutilated body was discovered in a dumpster southeast of Los Angeles on August 15th. Her teeth and fingers were removed, making identification difficult. She was identified through serial numbers on her breast implants.

Jenkins’s boat was found on Wednesday, south of Vancouver, not far from the US-Canada border. Police believe he drove from California to Blaine, Washington and then took a boat to Point Roberts, Washington where he crossed the border on foot into Tsawwassen, Canada. The RCMP confirmed early Sunday that Jenkins was somewhere in Canada and he should turn himself in. He was considered armed and dangerous.

Ryan Jenkins is from Calgary and moved to Los Angeles after appearing in a reality television show on the VH1 network, “Megan Wants a Millionaire“.

There were a couple of false sightings during the manhunt. One man was stopped on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver for using an alias. Another man was taken off a Vancouver transit bus because he looked similar and was interested in the news story.

U.S. Marshals were offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to his capture.

Jobs: The Best Medical Job Search Tips Ever

Posted on November 25, 2021November 26, 2021Categories School

The demand for these positions is, in fact, consistently growing because there were also notable increases in medicine and health care-related job searches. It reported a total of 3.5 million searches just in the Internet and a particular web site alone.Finding a job in the medical field can be very tedious and daunting, especially with all those millions of competitors all vying for the same related work field.Therefore, for people who wish to obtain some edge over the others and have higher possibilities that they can get the medical job they have long wanted to have, here are some tips to guide them through:1. The key to your dream job is in the resumeGone are the days of the so-called cookie-cutter resumes. What matters most is to incorporate all the details being asked in the job posting.The employer seeks to find the details he had posted in the listing; hence, he would be expecting to find it on the applicants resume. Make certain that the resume matches the qualifications that the potential employer is seeking.2. Applicants should have previous experience alreadyThe key point into getting a good medical job is based on the fact that prior to the application, the applicant should, by all means, try to generate some work experience even if the starting salary is just minimal. As long as it will give a person some kind of work experience, he or she should never hesitate to grab the opportunity.In reality, 60% of the hiring employers are interested with the work experience, with all the other qualifications set aside.3. For medical job searches online, it is best if the applicant will narrow job searches.This means that the person should use terms that are more specific with regards to the kind of medical job he or she is looking for. It will not necessarily give the applicant a thousand results, but at least the applicant can generate at least 10 to 20 job searches with greater possibility of acquiring a job.The bottom line is that medical related jobs are not that hard to find. With some determination and persistence the chances of obtaining the ideal job is just a matter of time.

Egyptian treasures found in ancient tomb

Posted on November 22, 2021November 23, 2021Categories Uncategorized

Friday, March 13, 2009

A team of archaeologists excavating an Ancient Egyptian tomb have discovered golden jewelry in a recently-discovered lower chamber at the Valley of the Kings burial site in Luxor, Egypt.

Two golden rings and five golden earrings were found in the tomb of Djehuty, an 18th-dynasty official of Queen Hatshepsut, and were probably the property of Djehuty or his family.

The discovery was announced by Farouk Hosni, Egypt’s current Minister of Culture.

Djehuty was overseer of the treasury and overseer of works for the Queen. Hatshepsut reigned approximately 1479–1458 BCE. Djehuty was responsible for managing the huge amounts of precious goods brought in from Egypt’s military expedition to Punt in the Horn of Africa and the vast building projects of Hatshepsut which have made the female pharaoh one of the most-remembered of any from ancient Egypt.

Djehuty died after Hatshepsut did, sometime during the reign of Thutmosis III. Both Hatshepsut’s and Thutmosis’s names are recorded on the tomb. In a fashion typical of ancient Egyptian rivalries, Hatshepsut’s name was partly obscured on the monument over the tomb sometime after the queen’s death.

The team, led by José Manuel Galán of the National Research Center (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC), in Madrid, Spain, had been excavating the tomb, designated TT11 and located in the necropolis of Dra’ Abu el-Naga’, since 2002. While much of Djehuty’s funerary equipment was lost to fire in antiquity, the lower chamber of his tomb was concealed at the end of a three-meter shaft and discovered at the end of 2008.

A superficial description of the tomb itself was recorded almost two hundred years ago by 19th-century French Egyptologist Jean-François Champollion, rubble blocking the entrance hindered excavation until the 21st century. In that time, emphasis in Egyptology has changed from the cataloging of treasures to the investigation of ancient culture, life and religion.

Since excavation began, Djehuty’s tomb has yielded a number of surprises. It was discovered that the tomb was re-used repeatedly up to and during the Greco-Roman period. There is an unusual face-on depiction of pharaoh Thutmosis III hunting ducks, and the mummy of a young, bejewelled, as-yet unidentified woman.

In 2007, 44 preserved bunches of flowers thought to be from Djehuty’s funeral were found in the site. In their 8th season of excavation, which ended on February 22, 2009, the team also found considerable evidence that below Djehuty’s tomb is a network of burial sites from the 11th dynasty, four thousand years old.

The lower chamber also displays passages from the Egyptian funerary text the Book of the Dead on its walls and a colorful mural of the goddess Nut, an embodiment of the heavens, on the ceiling. The names of Djehuty and his parents were also intact in the second chamber; the names were defaced in the previously-known first chamber of the tomb, which had also been looted.

According to a press release from Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, Djehuty’s tomb is only the fifth known decorated burial chamber of the 18th dynasty. An additional unusual feature of the tomb is that its upper chamber is decorated in relief, rather than simply paint. When the excavation is completed, Dr Galán’s team plans to open the site to the public as the carved stoneworks will not be destroyed by tourists’ activities as paint would.

The identification of Djehuty is a complicated one, as a number of officials of the 18th dynasty bore the name, including a general and several governors. The name itself is an alternate transliteration of the name of the Egyptian god usually written in English as Thoth.

How Bhojpuri Mp3 Songs Have Become The Latest Source Of Entertainment}

Posted on November 21, 2021November 22, 2021Categories Home Care Services

Submitted by: Leo Turpin

Whether the listeners listen to Bhojpuri songs online or offline, they have undoubtedly become one of the major sources of entertainment for music lovers. Their popularities are consistently growing. However there are some distinctions to be made between the quality Bhojpuri songs and the sleazy and double meaning trash songs that are often heard in the dingy music shops and hotels and bars.

Choosing the Quality Songs

While downloading Bhojpuri songs one has to take care to choose a provider who would offer them the best and most qualitative songs at the cheapest. At the same time people may not like to download songs that would embarrass them while sitting with family or the near and dear ones. But they would certainly like to have quality Bhojpuri songs that would be enchanting to the core. Good news for the prospective downloader is that there are quality sites that shelve such vulgarities and offer the best quality songs and music for downloading.

A Mix of Theme and Rhyme

The quality music portal would offer Bhojpuri mp3 songs download that would be a genuine mixture of theme and rhyme. It would stem the degradation found in many quarters and give the listeners the pleasure of listening to top quality music. There are many songs that are combinations of great theme, excellent lyrics and enchanting music and that are what the quality portal offers for the listeners.

Growing Demands for Entertainment

There is an ever growing demand for entertainment throughout the country especially among the younger generations. One of the best sources of entertainment is the DJ Bhojpuri and other Bhojpuri songs as well as music. Today the Bhojpuri songs are not only the source of entertainment inland but all over the world. With stalwarts till thriving and many talented musicians and singers emerging from Bihar, Jharkhand and U.P, the ambits of the song industry has been spreading fast and with consistent results. Even the Bollywood movies are invaded by this trend of the rising popularity of Bhojpuri songs.

Free Downloads Available

While free download Bhojpuri MP3 songs are becoming very popular with music lovers, there is an inherent danger in downloading the contents from spurious sites. There could be violation of copyrights and resultant litigation might put the person concerned in trouble. This wont happen when one opts for the free download Bhojpuri MP3 songs from a genuine and reputed site. All such contents offered by them would be copyright compatible and the user would not be facing any trouble.

Bhojpuri as a Part of Hindi Dialects

Basic reason for the popularity of DJ Bhojpuri and such other Bhojpuri songs is that the language is a part of the Hindi dialect. Similar dialects are Maghi and Mathili as well as Palli the sacred language of the Buddhists. It is yet to be recognized as a separate language but the demands for the same are consistently on the rise.

The world is going digital with the advent of computers and Internet and every user is now looking forward to Bhojpuri MP3 downloads on their computers through Internet.
