Hei ehtisittekö korjata muutaman kirjoitusvirheen: (a) lisää väliviiva sanaan "cooperation" eli pitäisi olla "co-operation" (b) rivi joka alkaa "1.Javier": lisää välilyönti pisteen ja Javier-sana väliin, eli pitäisi olla: 1. Javier (c) viimeinen rivi: korvaa piste pilkulla, poista pilkku ja lisää loppuun piste, eli pitäisi olla: 6. Dan Zahavi, from Denmark. kiitos sara h
