Bipolar disorder sensory issues OCD you name it really that the panoply of issues that are related to autism.
And I think for us it was a life changing move for him to go there when our school district agreed to send him at a district to see that changing him.
The excitement and -- -- -- going to school instead of the anxiety and what it's done effort our family we know they've done the same thing for a lot of other families.

To the downside let's talk about trading -- right now at noontime 311.
Million shares Duncan.
We think that's a problem.
-- I think.
I think the volume is not gonna come back tomorrow or the next day either I think what's happening is there -- so many macro issues out there right now we talked about in the earnings call was the same thing that.
We don't control the -- -- that the macro environment we don't control the volumes in a low volume low volatility environment.
It's going to be hard for anyone it anyone in our industry to really move the needle so you have to you have to keep control over what you can so.
We talk about business economy you're saying that's obviously one of the reasons why we're not seeing the volume how would you describe.
Your economic outlook a few minutes give -- a word has -- look at.

We talked a lot about dark pools are working closely with a -- -- over at the NASDAQ with the SEC.
And that trading outside of these big exchanges what are -- where -- ready -- Yet what what -- -- just trying to say is that at some point this does become a policy issue that has to be addressed a wanna be very clear no one saying -- do away with competition.
We understand a fragmented market is probably one of the realities -- all gonna live with the we are saying -- -- If if more the volume is migrating to unregulated pools in the wake of a crisis that brought us less regulation no capacity is not good.
I think there is a policy issue here we should all be talking -- Right Duncan Niederauer thank you so -- -- second anniversary most of the flash crash -- gonna have another one -- that's not gonna happen.
