I hate to say you know contact number for people and never got -- by the Kabul apparently so torture or. Not quite job like that. And because they like. You know the mortar between the joints. -- -- -- Now you'll get a little some -- in your fingers and on people so it looks like that mortars twenty years old you know com. I think it was -- properly and the war -- is in decline by one wicket keeper appliance like that the -- A mile ideas to see statistical breakdown in and induced couple overnight -- I don't know what. -- -- Well it's due to mud brick -- is never really supposed to be waterproof.

The lower the number of better performs. And the other is the use value of the window. This -- where the glass -- of let's go to glass the frame connect. Again the lower the number the better the performance of that you value so good number for both. For our climb will be zero point 30 or less. And meeting less than zero point 200 point 10. You know so zero point 30 or less for both the solely seeking coefficient. And that you value the better those -- does -- reform.
