If you break down growth, you’ll see our developing markets grew roughly a 11%, that’s versus a 19% comp a year ago. It was interesting. If there is any phenomena going on there that might take that number down a bit relative to the past and it’s hard to actually put your finger on it, it would be the global multinationals are just a little more selective than they have been about country and category combinations as they continue their global development. But I don’t see them lightening up at all, it’s just being selective.With respect to investing for growth, we remain very much on track. Walmart continues to go well. Most of the operational risks related to the data in incorporation into our metric, all those things that we’re doing with and for Walmart for their insight and benefit are going very well. We continue to be on plan. And I’d say most of those risks are behind us. Global reach and read we continued with vesting very strongly. This again hits whole China, whole India and broadly in Africa and momentum in those markets continues to support those investments.
