Grandma Breaks Into Happy Tears After Meeting Her New Dog for the First Time

Pooches have a powerful sway over one’s emotions, as Shirley Lann knows.

The 84-year-old grandmother lost her beloved dog of 14 years one month ago, reports NBC4i.com. The dog’s death was especially hard on her since Lann shared the canine with her late husband.

To Lann’s family it was obvious there was a hole in the woman’s life without a furry friend, so her loved ones decided to help her out.

After searching a local shelter, they found the perfect pup — a Lhasa Apso named Sammy.

The family surprised Lann with the new addition at a medical rehabilitation center, where Lann was staying to recover from some recent health problems.

Her grandson, Matthew McVey, captured the first meeting on camera and posted the video to Twitter.

“My grandma lost her dog that she’s had for the past 14 years about a month ago (she was extremely close with her since it was my late grandfather’s dog too) and hasn’t been the same since she passed. Today my mom surprised her with Sammy,” McVey posted along with the clip.

In the video, Lann breaks into happy tears the moment Sammy steps into the room. Soon the fluffy pup is in her arms and Lann hugs Sammy lovingly to her chest.

McVey told Inside Edition the pair, who became fast friends, will be living together once Lann finish her recovery and moves back home.

Star Wars: BB-8 Dishes on Meeting Prince William and Harry at The Last Jedi Premiere

BB-8 is spilling it all!

The beloved droid stopped by PEOPLE Now to dish on everything Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (Disclaimer: The PEOPLE staff does not speak fluent droid and is likely making this all up.)

BB-8 said (beeped?) he loved getting the chance to meet Prince William and Harry on the red carpet at the London premiere of the film and that he does not get along with his evil counterpart BB-9E.

As for the best piece of advice fellow robot R2-D2 gave him?

“Don’t get blown up,” said the droid.

And staying true to the holiday season, BB-8 said if he had a lightsaber, it would almost certainly be red and green.

For his thoughts on porgs and to hear even more behind-the-scenes secrets from The Last Jedi, watch the above video.

In PEOPLE’s new special issue Star Wars: The Ultimate Guide to The Last Jedi (on newsstands now) and an exclusive PeopleTV special, BB-8 puppeteers Brian Herring and Dave Chapman open up about what fans can expect from the rolling droid in the upcoming film.

“He’s still a member of the heroes gang,” says Chapman. “He’s in there getting dirty and down with it.”

While Herring and Chapman promise fans that BB-8 will once again serve as a “comic relief” in the film, they say his role in the story is more important than ever.

“He’s a pivotal point, as the droids of Star Wars tends to be,” says Herring. “He also does a lot of stuff that we haven’t seen him do yet.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters Dec. 15.

Melania Trump Chooses Maison Ullens for Brigitte Macron Meeting

BELGIAN SUPPORT: Just as she had chosen the Italian label Dolce & Gabbana for Wednesday’s meeting with Pope Francis in Rome, First Lady Melania Trump once again paid tribute to the host nation by wearing a Belgian designer in Brussels Thursday.
For her first photo-op with French First Lady Brigitte Macron at the Magritte Museum, FLOTUS wore a custom-made belted leather jacket and skirt from Maison Ullens with Manolo Blahnik snakeskin heels. Trump’s suit was made specifically for her trip to Brussels with Maison Ullens’ founder Baroness Myriam Ullens de Schooten and creative director Kim Ullens, according to a company spokeswoman. The Danish Laursen, who previously worked for Christian Lacroix, Azzaro, Elie Saab and Kenzo, designs the collection, worked on sketches based on Trump’s requests.
Trump’s team approached the company since she wanted to wear a Belgian label, a spokeswoman for Maison Ullens said. The company’s founder Ullens de Schooten started the company in 2009 after recognizing the lack of chic travel wear, while traveling. She met the first lady during a fitting. The French Belgian designer focused on knitwear, leather and cashmere pieces including reversible. Trump joins the ranks of such other Maison Ullens shoppers as IMF’s Christine Lagarde, Catherine Deneuve

Bono Praises Mike Pence’s Defense of AIDS Bill During Friendly Meeting in Germany

After an address at the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Saturday in which he vowed that the Unite States will “hold Russia accountable,” Vice President Mike Pence had a brief visit with U2 frontman and activist Bono.

The two men discussed the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) — a government initiative to provide treatment, testing, education, and counseling to those suffering with HIV/AIDS in Africa (among other places).

It was first signed in 2003 under President George W. Bush and later renewed in 2008 under President Barack Obama. As an Indiana congressman at the time, Vice President Pence was an advocate for PEPFAR’s passing.

“Twice on the House floor you defended that,” Bono told Pence. “That’s how we know you.”

“It was an extraordinary historic accomplishment and you played a leading role in carrying it forward,” Pence responded.

The rockstar has been raising awareness about the global HIV/AIDS epidemic for nearly two decades now — co-forming Product Red, which partners with big brands (Nike, Gap, Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Beats by Dre, etc.) to help raise money for charities fighting the disease.

He also co-founded the ONE Campaign which aims to eradicate poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa by raising awareness and encouraging Americans to contact senators/elected officials and voice their opinions.

While Pence did advocate for PEPFAR’s passing, some critics have claimed that he enabled an HIV outbreak in Indiana when he was serving as governor. The critics claim that Pence’s defunding of Planned Parenthood, which was one of the few places in some parts of Indiana that offered HIV testing, as well as his alleged dithering on pushing forward a needle exchange bill to fight passing infections, led to a rise in HIV patients in Scott County. He eventually approved a bill for needle exchanges which led to a reduction in the number of HIV cases.

“I appreciate the chance to get together for you for a minute,” Pence told Bono. “I heard you were in town.”

“You’re the second busiest man on earth,” Bono joked.

Afterwards, the Pence tweeted about the meeting. “Enjoyed chatting w/ Bono at @MunSecConf,” he wrote. “Discussed prior effort to twice pass Africa AIDS assistance & future security in developing nations.”

The Munich Security Conference marks Pence’s first trip overseas as vice president.

Face Transplant Recipient Patrick Hardison Gets Kiss from His Donor’s Mother in Tear-Filled First Meeting: ‘It’s Like She’s Family’

Earlier this month, Patrick Hardison came face-to-face with the woman who gave him a second chance at life.

Hardison, a volunteer firefighter, suffered severe burns that badly disfigured his face during a 2001 search and rescue mission through a blazing house fire. Last year, he underwent the first extensive face transplant after David Rodebaugh, a 26-year-old Brooklyn bike mechanic and BMX racer, died after sustaining brain trauma in a cycling accident. Rodebaugh’s mother, Nancy Millar, made the difficult decision to donate her son’s organs — including his face — and changed Hardison’s life forever.

On Nov. 7, Hardison got to thank Millar in person for the first time in New York City during a very emotional meeting. PEOPLE was there to capture the special moment and speak to both Nancy and Patrick, now friends who will be connected forever.

A Mother’s Grief

“David was the sweetest, nicest, funnest guy — I mean, just always having fun,” says Millar, about her son, David. “Sunshine; always happy.”

Sadly, their lives were tragically turned upside down when, on August 2015, as Rodebaugh was riding his bike home from work, a pedestrian walked out in front of him. Swerving to avoid the collision, he flew off his bike and landed on his head. On Aug. 12, Rodebaugh was pronounced brain-dead, and his mother had what for most would have been a difficult decision to make.

But for Millar, the choice to donate David’s face (as well as his kidneys, liver and heart) came easily, and from the heart.

“Hands down, no question,” she says. “I said, ‘You better save his face. He has the face of a porcelain doll.’ And he’s a donor — we had talked about it.” ThroughLiveOnNY, an organ donation organization, Rodebaugh’s face was found to be a perfect match with Hardison’s.

A Man’s Second Chance at Life

Two days later, on Aug. 14, 2015, Dr. Eduardo D. Rodriguez — the chair of the Wyss Despartment of Plastic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York — wheeled Patrick Hardison into an operating room and, during a 26-hour surgical procedure, fitted Rodebaugh’s face to Hardison’s head.

“Patrick’s procedure included the largest amount of soft tissue that’s ever been transplanted in medicine. Not only from the front of the face but also the ears, eyelids, nose, lips, skin of the neck and hair-bearing scalp,” Dr. Rodriguez says of the risky procedure, which has only a 50 percent survival rate.

Hardison — who had lost his hair, ears, eyelids, nose and lips in the 2001 blaze —had no hesitations. By this time, his vision had started deteriorating due to complications with his eyelids, but more than that, he wanted to return to some state of normalcy, especially for his children: Alison, 22, Dalton, 19, Averi, 17, Braden, 13, and Cullen, 12.

“I had lived without a face for 14 years,” says Hardison, 42. “You get up every day of your life for 14 years hating the way you look, and you’ll do whatever it is to change — and that was what I wanted to do.”

In the 15 months since his surgery, Hardison has shown no signs of rejecting the transplant. “Everything has changed,” he says of his post surgery life. “I’m able to drive, go swimming with my kids — little things like that I haven’t been able to do for 15 years,” adds Hardison, who also enjoyed a family vacation to Disney World this summer, their first vacation since his accident.

“Now I’m just a normal guy,” says Hardison. “There’s no staring, no kids running off crying — that means everything.”

An Emotional Meeting

Face to face with recipient of her son’s face for the first time on Nov. 7, Millar had just one sweet request for Hardison.

“I said, ‘Can I kiss your forehead?’” Millar says. “That’s the one thing I wanted to do because every night before David went to bed when he was little, I kissed his forehead.”

Hardison says he wasn’t nervous about meeting Millar—more than anything, he just wanted to say thank you.

“I’ve been waiting a year to meet her. I’m just very grateful,” he says. “Without her it wouldn’t have been possible. It’s like she’s family. We connected that easily.”

Millar agrees that the two will always share a special bond — and she already senses her son’s spirit in Hardison.

“My son was my rock; he was my hero, my security, my protector. I see all of that in Patrick,” she says. “It’s almost like he’s my son, but he’s closer to my age, so he’s a brother. was like giving birth to a child. We’re gonna be friends forever.”

LiveOnNY President & CEO Helen Irving hopes their story inspires others to consider organ donation. “To see the gift that she’s been able to give through her son means a great deal to her,” Irving says of Millar. “It was really important to bring them all together so she could could come full-circle and really see the gift that David had left behind.”

For Hardison’s family, Rodebaugh and Millar’s sacrifice has literally been the gift of a lifetime.

“Dad’s been given a gift to have a second chance at life — and that’s what he’s doing,” says Hardison’s daughter, Alison. “It’s so bittersweet because you know in order to get to that point that someone else has had to lose a loved one. But in return, you get a miracle. That’s exactly what Dave was: Dave was our miracle.”

Donald and Melania Trump Keep Things Conservative Meeting the Obamas at the White House

IT’S GONNA BE BIG: Donald and Melania Trump made their first official trip to the White House on Nov. 10 for some quality time with President Obama and the First Lady.
While the president and Trump retreated to the Oval Office, Michelle Obama led Melania on a tour of the East Wing to see the private residences. The president-elect stuck with his signature look of a dark suit, white shirt, red tie and American flag lapel pin — most probably by Brioni, which he has favored throughout his race for the White House. While touring the U.S. Capitol hand-in-hand with her husband, Melania went with an equally conservative ensemble — a buttoned-up black double-breasted coat and black Christian Louboutin heels. Self-assured in her fashion choices, Melania is in the habit of buying her designer labels in Manhattan boutiques or online.
With her statuesque physique, Melania carries herself very much like the model she once was. The Slovenian-born brunette may very well usher out the pantsuit with her preference for jumpsuits. The mother of Barron Trump was unmistakable in a white one-shoulder Ralph Lauren jumpsuit on election night. (She also wore a black Ralph Lauren “Sheryl” jumpsuit for her husband’s final debate at

Glastonbury Festival: The Meeting of the Tribes

“I almost didn’t make it this year”, the younger sister of a friend told me at Glastonbury a few years ago. “It’s so expensive and I’m saving to get my buccal pads removed.” Buccal pads? “They are the bits of fat on top of your cheek bones”, she explains, pinching her attractive rosy cheeks. The time was when you would have been hard pressed to find anyone at the Glastonbury Festival planning cosmetic surgery, let alone being brave enough to admit to it. But Britain has changed and so has Glastonbury.

When I skipped school to come to Glastonbury for the first time a couple of decades back, the festival was a radical, counter-cultural event. Tickets, for those who decided not to step through the flimsy barbed wire fence, cost £17 – compared to £220 this year – and money raised went to CND. There were no Winnebagos filled with millionaire footballers, WAGs, supermodels and Conservative Party constituency chairmen dying in portaloos.

Headliners were edgy, musical outsiders rather than the likes of stadium rockers like the Rolling Stones and U2 or chart-toppers such as Beyoncé or Kanye West who will headline on the Pyramid Stage this year. Attending Glastonbury back then felt like a political statement and the only mainstream media coverage of the festival would centre on sporadic clashes between the police and traveller community. But even ’86 involved sitting around bonfires with veteran festival-goers who would bemoan the fact that Glastonbury was “not like it used to be”.

While Glastonbury has undoubtedly become more mainstream, however, it has not lost sight of its origins. Beneath the commercialisation and the hype, its political heart still beats strong.

The Glastonbury festival emerged more than four decades ago from the wider free festival movement whose philosophical roots can be traced back to a long tradition of British utopianism integrally connected to the land. Land rights and access to the land have always been an intensely political issue in Britain, reaching a climax in 18th century with the enclosure of common land under the Enclosures Act of 1761. The free festival movement of the 1970s and ’80s was founded on the principle of temporarily reclaiming patches of the countryside to create mini-collectives where normal rules and expectations would not apply.

The entry charge for the first Glastonbury Festival in 1970, headlined by Marc Bolan and Mickey Finn in Tyrannosaurus Rex, was £1. The following year, it was free. The early festivals had a loose manifesto of environmentalism and spiritual awareness-raising – the 1981 festival collecting an unprecedented £1 million for the anti-nuclear movement.

While the modern Glastonbury Festival may be surrounded by a virtually impenetrable fence and overseen by battalions of high-visibility security guards and police, it still feels remarkably free. It has retained strong links with the peace, environmental movements and campaigning organisations, eschewing virtually all corporate sponsorship.

According Rhian Lewis, WaterAid’s UK campaigns manager, the festival “provides us with a unique opportunity to publicise our work and reach out to new supporters” as evidenced by almost 18,000 signatories to a petition calling on the British Government to commit to lifting 100 million people out of water and sanitation poverty by 2015.

Graham Petersen, environmental co-ordinator of the University and College Union, has been coming to the Leftfield – an area where radical politics and music mix – since its inception in 1992. He believes that people are more receptive to new ideas at Glastonbury. “When you take people away from their hum-drum activities and put them in at festival in the middle of the countryside, their minds become more open”.

Yasmin Khan, former senior campaign co-ordinator at War on Want and regular speaker in the legendary Leftfield tent, was inspired to join War on Want when she heard one of the organisation’s speakers at Glastonbury a decade ago. “Most charities are not political. Rather than campaign for justice for the world’s poor, they focus on Band Aid solutions, like Bob Geldof and Bono before them. That is why Leftfield is so important – it’s about looking at the structural causes of poverty and inspiring people to get involved in the movement, be that by taking action against the cuts or in standing in solidarity with sweatshop workers in Bangladesh.”

Billy Bragg, who first came to Glastonbury in 1984 and now curates Leftfield, believes that in the face of the coalition Government’s unprecedented attack on public services the political side of Glastonbury is as important as it ever has been. I told him about the girl with the buccal pads and asked whether he ever despairs at how unpoliticised so many young people. “Not at all. Look at me. I wasn’t really that political until Margret Thatcher came along.”

In 2013 Michael Eavis, Glastonbury’s founder, stated that he wanted the festival to return to its political roots. He pointed out that the festival has “always been a sounding board for lots of unrest.” But while there may have been a record number of activists at that year’s festival, the most high-profile piece of political activism – an attempt by UK Uncut to stage a protest against Bono’s tax avoidance during U2’s set – was brought to an abrupt end by stewards.

Ed Gillespie, who spends much of the festival in the Green Field absolving people in the Earthly Sins Confessional Booth, believes: “Glastonbury may not be as vigorously, overtly political now as it has been in the past, but the systematic subversion that the festival subliminally disseminates is still a powerful force which is perhaps why the mainstream has worked so hard to co-opt and coerce it.” According to Gillespie, Glastonbury offers people an opportunity to express themselves freely and creatively without the constraints of societal norms. “More importantly, people are doing this together. They establish a sizeable and functioning city in a Somerset field that experiments with possibilities and asks many questions about how we really want to live.”

Throughout history, festivals have provided imaginative communal spaces for people to step outside their normal lives and their normal selves. While most festivals might not be overtly political, the process of coming together to create to a temporary society where people live and dance side-by-side is in itself both a political and politicising thing.

Glastonbury, like all festivals throughout all ages and cultures, is still about the gathering of the tribes. But the tribes of Britain are no longer Celts, druids and pagans.

Some echoes of ancient British lore may linger, but the “tribes” of modern Britain are complex, fluid and constantly shifting. Today’s Glastonbury is not the same as it used to be. But somehow the “Glastonbury spirit” endures. People of all ages and all classes from all regions of the nation gather in the lush English countryside. They live beside each other. They talk and laugh and dance together. And when they arrive home and step back into their everyday lives, they find that something within them has changed. It may be a subtle shift. It may not last forever. But whatever it is, it is something intrinsically political.

After Meeting On Twitter, This Couple Is Live-Streaming Their Wedding On Periscope

Bryanna Mazzella and Kyle Harris met three years ago on Twitter. So it’s only fitting that they’re incorporating relatives and loved ones into their upcoming nuptials through Twitter’s very own live-streaming service, Periscope.

“We have a bunch of people in different countries and other states who can’t make it to the wedding, and we thought with all the live-streaming technology out now, it’s just a perfect way to let them be with us on our day,” Harris told HuffPost Live on Wednesday. “I just think it’s a great tool to have.”

Having accumulated an online following, the couple can also use Periscope to invite fans from Twitter and Instagram to witness their vows at no cost.

“Just to have our family and friends from other places to be able to be with us, at least just in spirit and vibe, is amazing for us,” said Mazzella.

Rosie O’Donnell Dishes On New ‘View’ Crew, First Meeting With Nicolle Wallace

Despite having some political differences with one of her co-hosts, Rosie O’Donnell says things have been going smoothly over at ABC News’ “The View.”

During an interview with David Letterman Thursday night, O’Donnell ran down the list of the show’s new panelists. Things got a little tense, however, when she reached former George W. Bush communications director Nicolle Wallace, who joined “The View” as a co-host back in September. O’Donnell — who leans left politically — detailed the pair’s somewhat awkward first encounter in which she grilled Wallace about Bush’s decision to fly over Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

“I asked her the first day if it was her idea to do the fly over Katrina, and I don’t know if that was the best way to open conversation with her,” O’Donnell said to laughter from the crowd. “Luckily she was on her wedding and she had nothing to do with that, so we actually get along very well.”

Letterman pressed further though, wanting to know the “high moments” of Wallace’s tenure with the Bush administration, and O’Donnell snuck in a couple light jabs.

“I think there were some interesting moments with, well, maybe illegal wars. There was that,” she said. “Last week there was a big torture debate we had. I don’t know, maybe it’s me, I’m against torture on the whole. Just across the board.”

Of Course Mindy Kaling Has Perfect Outfit Ideas for Meeting His Parents Over Thanksgiving

Have holiday plans that include a big, important, nerve-inducing introduction to, say, the parents of the guy you’ve been dating for the last six months or so? It’s a stressful situation always, but doing it over a high-performance meal like Thanksgiving makes it even more intimidating. Enter Mindy Kaling (and Mindy Lahiri), master of the colorful, fashion-forward, parent-appropriate outfit. Take a cue from her before packing your suitcase and go into the hellos with confidence.

#1. A Cocktail Dress Layered Over a Button-Up

Have a flirty dress that completely broadcasts “This is who I am, world”? Those are the pieces in our closet that typically give us the most confidence, but skinny straps or a curve-hugging cut don’t always jump out as the most appropriate when making a first impression on future in-laws. I love this styling trick: put a classic button-up under it to instantly make it feel more professional. The added layer gives you an extra bit of warmth, too, if you’re holidaying somewhere cold.

#2. A Wrap Dress

There’s a reason the wrap dress is such a classic—it’s flattering on all body types. The easy style strikes the perfect note between dressed up but not overly so, a major check in its pro column if you’re not sure whether his family goes casual or not for the big meal. If you’re busty, avoid over exposure by wearing with a thin camisole.

#3. One Bold Accessory

Whether you’re sticking with a safe and simple LBD or dressing for a casual get-together, let some personality shine through via a bold accessory (I love Mindy’s orangey red pair heels). It’ll make for a great conversation starter if his mom’s super into fashion and, if not, it’ll make you smile every time you catch a glimpse. Win-win.

#4. A Statement Coat

Career expert Nicole Williams told me we have under three seconds to make a first impression, so think about this: If you’ll first be greeting your love’s parents after walking in from the outside or in the parking lot of a restaurant, they’ll see whatever coat you have on, not the carefully selected outfit you’ve got on underneath. Consider leaving your warm, down-filled puffer at home and pull on something more tailored instead.

#5. Matching Monochrome

If you don’t want to do all black or navy but a bold print feels too risky, consider something in between. The monochrome look is chic no matter what shade you select, and a bright brings in a whole lot of personality. To experiment with a pattern, try a graphic windowpane.

Are you meeting your love’s parents for the first time this holiday season? Do you remember what you wore the first time you did? I was getting ready for a 7-hour car ride before I met my in-laws, so I bet I was in jeans…

Meeting the Challenge of Social Problems via Agent-Based Simulation

Meeting the Challenge of Social Problems via Agent-Based Simulation


Social sciences are moving to the next stage. One ofthe promising methodologies is agent-based computer simulation. In a series ofworkshops on Agent-Based Ap- proaches in Economic and Social Complex Systems (AESCS), ground-breaking studies of complex economic and social phenomena using computational approaches are being presented and discussed. This volume contains papers selected from pre- sentations at the AESCS ’02 held at the University ofTokyo, Japan, on August 16, 2002. The workshop was the second in a series ofPacific Rim activities in interdis- ciplinary areas of social and computational sciences, the first workshop having been held in Shimane, Japan, May 21-22, 2001. The objective of AESCS workshops is to promote worldwide multidisciplinary activities in multiagent computational economics, organizational science, social dynamics, and complex systems. AESCS brings together researchers and practitio- ners from diverse fields, such as computer science, economics, physics, sociology, psychology, and complex theory, in order to understand emergent and collective phenomena in economic, organizational, and social systems.A ESCS also provides an opportunity for discussion ofthe effectiveness and limitations ofcomputational models and methodologies for the social sciences. The second AESCS workshop focused on the importance ofcumulative progress in agent-based simulation in the social sciences through discussions ofcommon tasks, standard computational models, replication and validation issues, and evalu- ation and verification criteria for the results.

Kelly Clarkson Felt ‘Pathetically Alone’ Before Meeting Husband Brandon Blackstock

In a new interview, Kelly Clarkson admits she was a bit lonely before she met her husband, Brandon Blackstock.

“I was single for almost seven years,” Clarkson tells Parade magazine of her love life prior to falling for Blackstock. “Every Christmas, it was like, ‘Seriously, I’m still pathetically alone? Awesome. I’m still telling people I’m okay with it? I’m not.’”

The 31-year-old said she only had three boyfriends in her life until last year, when she decided to give it a shot with Blackstock after meeting him at the 2012 Super Bowl. The two connected through her manager and his father, Narvel Blackstock. In February, following their December engagement, the “American Idol” star told Cosmopolitan, “I’ve never been truly loved like I am right now.”

Clarkson and Blackstock married in an intimate ceremony in Tenn., on Oct. 20 at Blackberry Farms after scrapping plans for a big to-do.

“I bawled like a baby,” she tells Parade of their wedding day. “We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it … Brandon was like, ‘The Notebook ain’t got nothin’ on me — come on!’ And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat. It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect.”

Soon, baby will make three. The singer announced she is pregnant with her first child on Twitter Tuesday (Nov. 19). Blackstock already has two children from a previous marriage.

“Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!” she admits to Parade about the pregnancy. “I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expectin’ that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don’t expect a lot.”
