    I did not find this to listen to the webcast until it was over. Am tired. Off to le sack early tonight.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      .....available from the following, about 1:27:06 into the video.  The applause at the start after a portion of the speechifying is in the light of the right-wing Dutch government's massive budget cuts to Dutch radio, in particular the live music divisions.

        the link. I really enjoyed it. Do not understand Dutch but I hear a lot of California and Los Angeles mentioned at the end.

          .....this concert is part of the commemorations of what appears to be the anniversary of the Saturday morning concert series by Dutch Radio at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam.  There's also a lot of thanks to the audience for their support, and also a wish that the voices of protest will be heard in The Hague (Den Haag), the national capital, of course.  (You can guess that I haven't watched the whole video yet.)

            since I did not understand Dutch, I would skip to the 1:27 mark. Watched it from there to the end. Clarinets were under-represented (sigh) while the violins and french horns seemed to take center stage. There was a nice oboe and trumpet solo. But being a clarinet player as a kid, I am butt hurt. LOL!!
