Tell us what's important to you
And---one last question---to the extent that you do have a sense of associate, partner, etc. happiness, do you have a sense of what tends to be responsible for whatever happiness levels there appear to you to be?

WL Kira's due May 8th, think we'll see WL movement after that?
@OptimisticOutlier: weird my WL Kira was due May 1
I believe NU extended the deadline to take the Kira to May 8th for those who missed the May 1 deadline.
