"Hard time getting fights? Because Demetrius Andrea is too damn good. He's too damn left handed. He's too damn experience. He's too damn disciplined. He's too damn scaled name one, but everything starts with two damn because he's that he's that good. He's that avoided. And he doesn't take chances. I mean, he's disciplined. He doesn't take chances, and he's a SAO Paul. So he'll pick you apart from that southpaw stance. And he won't he won't he can knock you down he can hurt you, but he'll go after the knock down for I mean the knockout for a little bit. If he doesn't get it, he goes back on the stick and gets back on cruise control. That's discipline. You might call it boring, and you know what? If you want the big fights, you're going to have to get out of that element. So, you know, I think he realizes that now. But he puts it back on cruise control and it takes so much discipline for a fighter who has a fighter down he has a fighter hurt multiple times in the first two three rounds for him not to go for the knockout because you don't get paid for overtime. You don't get paid for rounds, get the job done and get out of here. And that's how you get the big fight, but Android, he's already satisfied. He's already content with what he made of his career. He's in his 30s now. He's made he's made a lot of money, especially with match room and especially with his own later part of his career. He's held down to that championship without beating any champions. Think about that. He's a world champion. He's defended it multiple times, but he hasn't faced one world champion. If you look at, if you ask any fighter, what do you want to be? What do you want? What do you want to get out of boxing? Well, I want to become a champion. Check. Andrew did it. What do you want to do? Why want to make millions of dollars? Check. Andre did. What else do you want to do? Well, I want to fight the best. That is not checked on Android's par. But then that, he's having a hell of a career, and he's laughing all the way to the bank, and he's going to go down as a two division champion. Maybe even undefeated in a blemish. But he's not going to have that name on his resume. And that bothers every factor. That bothers him. Because not for nothing, man. It's not for nothing. I'm not comparing myself to anybody, but shit, man, I got two Hall of Famers on my resume. I fought the great chain mosey and I fought the great burning forest. So not for nothing. You got people look at my career. Oh, he's a pretend he's a contender. He didn't hold on to the title long. Hey, man, but I got some I went one in one and one with two Hall of Fame. So at least people are going to associate me with a reality show and two great fighters. So that's what he's missing that association with a great fighter with a great name and we all need that B side. He doesn't have it. Demetrius Andrade is one of the most avoided fighters in boxing history. And that might sound hyperbolic. But look at some of the other guys of this era that have been avoided. Eris landy Lara was avoided for a lot of you. But Lara got a fight with Canelo. That was a huge opportunity for him. Guillermo riggin Dow, southpaw, avoided for a lot of years, but eventually he got that huge showdown with Vasily lomachenko. You can go back even further. Pernell Whitaker was a guy that was avoided by a lot of fighters over the years. Got his opportunity though against Oscar De La Hoya among others. Demetrius Andrade has not gotten that opportunity. That to me is in some ways inexplainable because Android while he is a southpaw and extremely talented has a belt and he's got money behind him. You are going to make a career, high purse. If you face Demetrius Android, Eddie Hearn, allegedly, made an offer to Jamal Charlotte for $7 million to fight Demetrius Andrade, and he turned that down. That is wild to me. I can't fathom a fighter doing that when so much money and prestige is on the table. All that being said Sergio career high purse having to deal with a southpaw curse. Okay, but that's why these guys rather look in another direction because I mean outlaw should be banned or outlawed. That's what Mickey's self and rocky southpaw thought should be outlawed. And that holds true. That holds I mean that line was written in the 80s by Stallone and it still holds true now, especially south puzzled in an Olympic pedigree now. If Android fought like rocky Balboa, you bet everyone would be running towards that belt, but he doesn't. Well, there's my follow-up here. And raid has been his own worst enemy. If androids fight against Walter kawa ends in the fourth round, it's a different story. If Android's fight against matcha soletsky ends in the second round, which it could have, it's a different story. If Andrade's win over Luke. The first round, but I understand those three. Andrea had him down what like 15 seconds into the fight. If he had put keeler down and out in the first round, it's a different story. You know why Gabe rosado earned the fight with Jaime McGee? Not because he beat back to America. Because of the year. He flattened him with a knock out of the year type of fight. Maybe there was a little bit of luck to that punch, but he knocked him out, and that's why he got the fight against him in McGill. I know you agree with me that if Android went for more knockouts and picked up more knockouts, we would be talking about a completely different career path. He would have gotten at least one or maybe more of the signature fighting. I agree with you there, but I don't agree with you that, you know, there's no luck in boxing. There's no lucky shot, the result of time. There are lucky shots. No, there's this lock. No, there's not. And you know nothing about luck or fighting. But Android on the other hand, he does know about boxing and he does know about being lucky because he's unblemished to this career. He's been a U.S. Olympian. He's been a world champion in two divisions. He's making that. He's making millions of dollars and you know what? He's following the right game plan. No, he made his own luck. He made his own look. And right now he's making his own decisions, and they're just not going his way on the elite level. Okay, so make yourself androids manager here. Against Jason quickly, what do you want to see him do? Well, quickly has been stopped by a fighter that switches into Rihanna Johnson. I think he was nailing him with overhand lefts and rights from a southpaw stance. We have a big, a bigger, taller, São Paulo natural sample in Android, who slings his shots as well. So I would say start fast like he normally does, and when, not if, when he catches quickly and rocks him, go for the stoppage. Now, this is gonna be a little bit dangerous because quickly is an excellent excellent boxer puncher with heavy hands and amateur pedigree as well. So he'll love that opportunity to catch Android and going for the finish. Just like Andy Lee, who's now in his corner, did when he when he won the championship or against korobov. You know, he rocked them when he got rock. So yeah, anytime you're dealing with a fighter with a lot of experience and with power behind them, they have that lucky. Well, I'm sorry. See you said it. That's the word you just you're lucky I said it. Now they have that one bullet in the chamber. Yeah. Look, if he comes out with the same success early on that he had against captain dakwa and keeler and soletsky and several other fighters along the way, he's got to close the show. Like he has got to make concerted effort. This has to be his statement, because one thing that's works for Android, I think. Is that if Canelo was really serious about fighting a Cruiserweight. All of a sudden, all those guys that have been kind of waiting for that Canelo lottery ticket, they'll look over something else. You know, golovkin if he beats burrata. He's available. Hi Miami, going.

Yoshiko is from ceo palo. He's monocle senior correspondent and he is right here in the studio in london. A i will start with you samantha. And the story. That is the reason. We're doing this episode. It's the resignation of these three service chiefs. Obviously a choreographed move on their part. But how seismic has that been. It's been a pretty big may chair in brazil. Last time the heads of the armed forces left on the same day was nineteen ninety-five And that was the end. Up brazil's twenty one year dictatorship. So really it's not normal for this to happen in brazil and it's it's had a huge impact and just to follow that up samantha. Anyone know yet entirely what the motivations are actually at some level. Trying to bolsonaro out i think site mean a defense ministry said very little when they announced the change but sources close. The government told as essentially resigned in protest. Why do they do this. Because basically the past couple of years while sonata the president bus not has been trying to politicize military force Bat kim on political issues now. This is a lot of tension among the hiring sip. the military. They believe that they answer only to the constitution that they're above plots politics fair while they're going to be tarnished.

Despair and disparities: covid-19 consumes Brazil

"Has just gone through. Its deadliest week of the pandemic daily fatalities. Hit a record level of more than nine thousand nine hundred on thursday bringing the total number of deaths to more than two hundred sixty five thousand and cases to more than eleven million. The discovery of contagious new corona virus variant in the amazon region has fueled the brutal second wave but the government's response has been slow and patchy and has failed to contain the spread. The sense that you get living here is sad and almost fatalistic. It feels like this country has given up on dealing with this pandemic in a responsible life saving way. Many months ago ceremonies. Lynn is brazil correspondent. Even though we are all seeing that the cases are higher than they've ever been. The hospitals are full in nearly every part of the country. The restrictions that have been introduced feel completely out of tune with that reality. They've been late. they've been minimal. And some cities are slightly stricter than others. But i think the feeling that most brazilians have is that covert is just going to happen. Overtake this country like a tidal wave. And there's nothing that anyone can do about it and the concern right now. Is that the. The health system is buckling under the weight. Right so the difference between this second wave compared to the first wave is that for the first several months of the pandemic. The virus was sort of ping-pong between different brazilian states whereas now most of the country's twenty six states are seeing their hospitals at or near capacity. And there's really a limited ability to sort of transfer patients or doctors or supplies between the different states recently. The health secretary of the amazonian state of honea mentioned this desperation in a video aimed at those who weren't taking the current virus seriously is typical seymour's known them was laid to swap mine. Nothing lead today but also by a sweatshirt but he says we have no icu. Beds for your mother your father for your aunt. It doesn't matter if you're rich. Poor young old. We simply have no. Icu beds available and those rising in numbers. Those strains that are coming about. Is that down two new variants of the viruses. That the big problem here. That's definitely part of the story. They found this new variant in the amazonian city of manaus late last year. It's called p. One and recent studies show that. It's one point four to two point two times more contagious than other versions of the virus. And the really scary thing is that it looks like it is much more capable of reinfecting people who have already been infected. That might be why people in manaus were hit really badly by second wave. Even though some studies suggest that as many as three quarters of the population had been infected in the first wave the other thing that seems really scary is that it looks like this. Current wave is affecting young people and much higher numbers than before so this variant is clearly causing some of the trouble. But you also say that. There's a certain sense of fatalism. That's contributing here. I mean how much does that have to do with the leadership. We talked a lot before. About how president of brush off the pandemic bolsonaro hasn't changed a bit at a recent event. He told brazilians to stop whining about the krona virus. Sugar jimmy because the club and said how long are you going to keep crying about it. But it's not just him the first wave you saw politicians trying to take a different stance and even going to the supreme court to fight for their right to shut things down even though the president disagreed this time it's different. Brazil has been seeing cases creep up for months now and it's only in the past few weeks. That mayors and governors have really started implementing serious restrictions closing businesses fulltime rather than. Just say from eleven pm to five. Am which is what we had in sao paulo for a few weeks. And what do the brazilian people think about. The the patchy measures have been put into place. I think there's a real split. You definitely see the outrage that brazilians especially the more educated and richard brazilian have had from the beginning. But there's also a real feeling among the middle class and the working class that putting in more restrictions is going to do more harm than good because the economic situation is so bad. Unemployment has barely come down from its high of around fourteen percent and the emergency cash payments. The federal government paid people for nine months last year. Have now been cut off to. Millions of people were basically plunged into poverty when the clock struck midnight on december. Thirty first congress is trying to push past a smaller version of the cash payments. But it's going to take some time but certainly one path out of all of these kinds of trade offs is vaccination. How is the country's program of of inoculation going. It's had a frustratingly slow start. Brazil has administered vaccines to only about three percent of its population that's way behind neighboring countries. Like she lay here in brazil. Most of the problem is that boston otto is anti vaccines and many months ago. When he had from different vaccine companies including some that were doing trials here in brazil he kicked the can down the road and signed with astra zeneca but that one provider hasn't been enough now here in sao paulo. The governor signed a deal with the sign of that company to produce its corona vac vaccine in the federal government. Sort of found itself forced to make a deal as well but they've also been all sorts of supply bottlenecks and problems with distribution and real kind of ineffectiveness by on the part of the national health ministry. Which is overseeing this whole effort. It sounds like a fairly bleak picture all around but it's not just a problem for brazil if these new variants in particular are allowed to run rampant. That's true and it's really scary. The longer the disease is left to fester. In in countries like brazil greater chance that new variants will start to emerge that reduced the effectiveness of covid nineteen vaccines elsewhere in the world posing a threat to nations that have already immunized their populations in a lot of these countries. That are still really struggling with the virus. You see their leaders just begging for the rest of the world to send them vaccine so that they can vaccinate people as quick as possible so far. We haven't seen that from bolsonaro he's been really against vaccines but just in the past few weeks. It looks like maybe he's starting to change his tune. He signed a deal with pfizer and he suggested in a recent interview that he himself might get vaccinated. So i guess the hope is relieved. The bolsonaro will understand that vaccinating people is essential to the economic recovery. That he's been prioritizing from the start and that that combined with attention from the rest of the world in getting vaccines to brazil will start to allow brazil to get a handle on something that feels right now like. It's totally out of control very much for your time sarah. Thank you jason

"Acknowledges this or not. President Trump leaves office next month with an awful statistic attached to the last year of his administration. The number of Americans who have died from the coronavirus The U. S. Has led the world for months in covert 19 deaths behind the U. S.

Thies drinkers don't seem worried by this city's new surgeon deaths or the growing waiting list for beds. Hundreds of mass close people crowd together. The only bubbles here are in beer glasses when the pandemic began, most people in this part of Rio tried to follow the rules. Closed businesses and stayed home.

When Brazil's death count rose above 5000 back in April. Also not a was asked to comment. Okay, let me get prosecuted so well, the president replied. Sorry. What you want me to do about it? That number is now above 190,000 Thea. Other day, Boss Narrow, addressed a packed crowd of supporters. He didn't wear a mask, nor did most of them. In Rio shot A Marcus watches both scenarios conduct with alarm that's led you those are the epitome it off of there, like a market is a community leader here in seduction, today's or city of God, It's one of Rio's many for Bella's about 1.5 million people live in them, They're often pour over crowded neighborhoods neglected by government. When covert arrived, Marcus and his fellow activists decided the city of God must protect itself. Those introducing the six inch think faith. We launched the social media information campaign, explains Marcus. He handed out masks and went door to door urging residents to socially distance. You said back out of the temple market, says his mission became harder after Boston Otto called the Corona virus a little flu.

It wasn't serious or they didn't need to do anything that I said Williamson is from catalytic communities along profit that supports community development in for Bella's. She says, when someone who must work to survive here's both scenarios messaging. She just thinks, okay, well, if the direction from the top is that there's no big deal, then I can go back to business. As usual, Williamson's organization runs a project tracking covert cases in the favelas. It's long, several 1000 deaths, but condition too tough and getting reliable data is difficult. I don't trust the numbers at all. Just don't the true picture is likely, much worse. Got it inspects units downtown toe. Williamson recently chaired an online conference in which people from for Bella's talked about what they're going through now, my only a disguise his name look a sugar, which our people are dying at home because they can't get healthcare, says A woman called Anna Paulus. Alice Ela says, C'mon, I opened is seen amiable, another handle a local service. Says she lost five friends to covet in one week. When both scenario took office, many commentators derided him as a know nothing. Retired Army captain from the far right, that's wrong, says Marcus Nobly, He's Glover. Of course, his clever he's clever in his cunning. Nobody has written a book about bullshit, narrow and is one of his faces critics. Let's get rid off this discourse that postal nado is dumb that both tomorrow is crazy. He doesn't strategy. You think that he's stupid? He's not both the knowledge popularity has actually gone up since the pandemic began. He made a bet that despite the thousands of deaths at the end of it, Brazilians will care about their jobs. All of the stone cool is professor of international relations at the Should Tulio Vargas Foundation in Sao Paulo, Even though his strategy can be considered to be morally reprehensible, you know, from an electoral point of view. It's actually quite effective. Both scenarios. Unexpected popularity also has a lot to do with money worried about soaring unemployment, his government's funding the most costly welfare program in Brazil's history. It's making emergency payments to 65 million of the poorest Brazilians. Well, God, by shown on that plan was in fact approved by Congress. Yet the president's getting the credit while other side's going there, Jenny, Although President Chinese there was another, it was a brilliant idea says You've done the same thing.

He says that the next election, both Sanada gets his boat real dish. Nero is now gearing up for the new year in an unusually subdued mood. Normally, there's this to look forward to a massive New Year's Eve party for more than a million people on Copacabana beach that's canceled. Most here are waiting for the vaccine.

You probably also know how the story ends. At the age of thirty four while racing at the nineteen ninety four, San Marino, Grand Prix Senna crash on lap, set on leaving the track and a speed over a hundred eighty miles per hour, slammed into a concrete wall, killing him on impact. The. Final Jenny home two with L.. Tragic death cut a storied career short and much like Kurt Cobain, Heath Ledger or to park. It froze centers, accomplishments, and magnetic personality in amber. Deprived of the slow decline to any great talent at the top of their profession will eventually fall. Victim to these names are instead forever frozen their lawyers, and so they remained. Forever Young. Senator is now a legend. But where do legends begin with an origin story of course? So what senators version of being bitten by a radioactive spider, finding a weird lamp, genie or floating down the Nile in a basket made of Reeds? Well like Spiderman Aladdin or Moses Senna his monogamous, but before Senate was sent off, his last name wasn't even Senna at all. His parents worry that he was uncoordinated and even had him test report. He was born into wealth, but although wealth can definitely give you access to the world of bracing, it can't make fast and Santa wasn't just fast. He was the fastest. So what was the moment Senna truly became Senate to answer that we need to start on March twenty first nineteen sixty the day. When in Sao Paulo Brazil. Ericsson senator silver was born. Welcome to pass gas. That was a long intro. Great Man I'm. I got a little choked up there for a second. I mean this guy is so important and just such.

I got a little teary eyed. When you're talking about the forever, young stuff is yeah I sure. Senna is a like I said an intro. He's a legend. Almost like a mythic figure at this point. Just such a hallowed name so revered in in in motor sports and the car world in general. Just like Oh yeah, you hear senators like he was I mean he was the greatest, but like it's just like an instant assumption of just like. Perfection basically right. Yeah, he's like Michael Jordan. Yeah, no thought given to, and we're going to see why that is because. There's a lot of good reason for that I. Think the moment where it hit where I was like Oh, damn was when? You when I I didn't realize he was thirty four when he died and I'm just about to turn thirty four, and so I'm like. I gotTA. Do. Joe You're the air and of automotive podcasting damage. Out Year Man.

"By the time police got the call about the bodies Invitation Hill. It was already starting to get dark. The Hill is surrounded by thick forest and brush so for everyone's safety. They decided to hold off until morning. Of course the press didn't take the same precautions when officers finally did arrive on the morning of August. Twenty first nineteen sixty six vin. Tame Hill was already swarming with reporters. The even snapped a few photos before the bodies were carried away unfortunately all the original sources are in Portuguese and more than fifty years later. It's hard to track them all down but some of them were summarized in English in the flying saucer review which despite the name was fairly credible journal in the sixties based on those articles. Here's what we know about. The police investigation. The only easy part of this case was identifying the victims thirty two year old men. Well Pereira de Cruz and thirty four year old. Miguel Giuseppe Viana. Both men were electronics. Technicians from the town called compost dose. Go to causes. Which is about one hundred and seventy five miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. Both of them were happily married. Well respected in the community and led pretty normal. Unassuming lives according to their families. Miguel and Manuel had left town. On the morning of Wednesday August Seventeenth nineteen sixty six three days before their bodies were found. They said they were heading to Sao Paulo to buy some electronics equipment. Along with a used car. They've been looking at. They took some money with them somewhere. Between two and three million Cruzeiros the conversion rate is a little hard to calculate. But that's somewhere worth like a few thousand. Us dollars today at about nine am. Miguel and Manuel headed out to the bus station accompanied by a friend named L. CEO Gomez. Elsa wanted to go into the bus station. See them off but the other two men insisted that he just drop them off outside. Elsia didn't understand what the big deal was but he didn't think too much of it. He watched Miguel men walk into the bus depot and then he went back home. That was the last time he ever saw his two friends alive now. Even with the minimal evidence police had at this point. There were a few things about this story. That didn't add up. When the bodies were found the only had a combined one hundred sixty one thousand Cruzeiro on them. The rest of the two three million is unaccounted for still to this day. And of course they didn't go to Sao Paulo like they told everyone else. They went to a town called NITA. Roy which is a suburb of Rio de Janeiro. Which is a good couple hundred miles away. The investigators went back to Nita. Roy Hoping to find some answers there but once they piece together the rest of August seventeenth nineteen sixty six. All they had were more questions. Miguel and men wells bus would have arrived in Nita Roy at around two or two thirty that afternoon their first stop was an electronic store. They'd been to that store before so we can assume it carried some kind of equipment that wasn't sold in their own town but for some reason they left the store without buying anything and they didn't even talk to the sales clerk there now. Maybe the store was out of whatever they were looking for. But the taken a five hour bus ride to get there. Why on Earth wouldn't they at least check with the clerk? Before leaving either way after they lead the electronic store it starts to rain so they stop into a clothing store nearby and buy a pair of matching raincoats again. This doesn't raise any red flags on its own. But what is weird? The clerk said that they left in such a rush that they didn't even bother to put on the coats before running out into the rain. The coach that they just bought now. You might assume that the big appointment that they were rushing to was with the owner of that used car that they were looking to buy. But you'd be wrong. They didn't buy any car during the trip so if they weren't buying electronics and they weren't buying a car. What were they doing there? Oddly the next time may surface is at a bar in the same neighborhood as the clothing store and when they get to the bar. They're still very anxious about the time. Miguel goes to the counter and orders a bottle of mineral water according to the bartender. He's acting very like nervous and impatient and while he's ordering he keeps glancing over at the clock after paying for the water. Miguel keeps the receipt and this might not seem like a big clue but Brazil has a recycling policy where you could return empty bottles for a deposit. So whatever or whoever they're waiting for. Miguel assumes won't take too long and he'll have time to return the bottle before heading home that evening no one saw Miguel. Well leave the bar so we don't know if they met someone there or they left alone but at five PM. They're seen at the foot of ENTAME Hill. Which is just outside town. They pull up in a jeep driven by someone with blonde hair. There were two other men in the car as well but the witness couldn't see them clearly. Whoever these three men were they were the last people to see Miguel and well alive. So by this point police had mapped out all of their movements from leaving home in the morning to arriving at the hill that night but none of it offered any clues about what actually happened next. We already mentioned a few the strange details at the scene of the deaths. But if we take a closer look it's even more baffling. Let's start off with what they didn't have the money that they brought with them. The most obvious possibility is that this was a robbery gone wrong but staging a scene like this would have taken a lot of time and effort for not a ton of money and they also left some behind also. There were no injuries on either of the bodies. No CUTS NO BRUISES. No Burns no sign of violence at all. When the corner didn't autopsy there were no internal damages either and strangely. Despite sitting out in the open for three days on a hill that's swarming with wildlife. The bodies were totally untouched by animals. No one can really say what that means but it kind of seems like there was something unnatural about the death if even the vultures didn't WanNa touch them if this wasn't a murder the next possibility was suicide but this theory sort of falls apart too because Miguel still had the empty water bottle and the receipt. If he knew he was going to die. Why go through the trouble of saving that receipt beyond that police find three pages of handwritten notes? That definitely didn't suggest a suicide pact. The first page has a a list of electronics parts. Numbers along with some Algebra work. The equation uses Ohm's law which is E. equals. I are which is used to calculate the strength of an electrical current now. The two men were electronics technicians. After all so everyone assumes these are just notes for a work project now. The next page though is more of an enigma translated from Portuguese. It says quote Sunday one tablet after the meal. Monday one tablet in the morning on an empty stomach. Tuesday one tablet after the meal Wednesday one tablet before bedtime and quote. Obviously this is talking about some kind of prescription. But as far as anyone knows neither Miguel or amend well were sick now. The last dose that Wednesday before bedtime dose would have been taken right before they died but due to decomposition the corner couldn't get useful out of the toxicology report so we still don't know what was in those mysterious tablets and this was a little hard for me to understand because just a second ago I know. He said the bodies kind of untouched by wildlife. I expected them to be in. Good condition. But whatever's going on at the time they either didn't have the technology they didn't have the time and they weren't able to test for it so finally. The third page has another set of instructions. This one said quote sixteen thirty be at the determined location. Eighteen thirty swallow capsules after the effect protect metals week for mask signal end quote. Now the confusion isn't a translation issue. It doesn't make any sense in Portuguese either. It almost seems like the note was kind of scribbled down quickly in some kind of shorthand which probably means someone gave the instructions verbally and someone else wrote them down putting it all together. We can at least gathered that Miguel Aiman. Well weren't the victims of some kind of random attack. They came to the hill for a reason. And that brings us to our last piece of evidence. The lead masks themselves now. You're probably picturing a full mask. That covers your entire face. Almost like what welders wear but these were about the size and shape of sunglasses made out of solid lead. They were apparently homemade and cut. Roughly FROM SCRAP METAL. Lead blocks radiation. So it's often used as a coating protective goggles and facials but these masks were too small to offer any real protection and since they were solid metal. It'd be impossible to see or do anything while wearing them so at first police had no idea what to make of these masks but after some digging it turned out that this wasn't an isolated incident according to flying saucer review. There was another case four years earlier.

The Metalworkers Union in Sao Paulo Monaco's Latin American affairs is correspondent leasing. The Elliott was there and I'm delighted to say. She joins us on the line. Now Welcome back to monocle twenty four. Listen what were things like on Saturday. When Lula appeared appeared was I stay really sort of marked a move really away from Lulu the political prisoner Emerton Lou? The politician thousands of people as you say gathered outside right the union where his political career really took off back in the one thousand nine hundred and they were there to hear his public address and it was a carnival of sorts with live music coming home really that that contrasted hugely to the very somber mood last time. The Workers Party supporters met at the site in April of last year when Luder actually handed ended himself into the authorities and went to prison. We stayed until fairly late. And there was a brief moment where he sort of popped his head out of the Union Wendo to say good night but it was certainly one of if one of celebration on Saturday and also there is a sense that this is a political breakthrough because yes he has been imprisoned and no he. The corruption charges have not been dropped and no he can't run for public office but this is him positioning himself back in the political limelight. Isn't it yet. He certainly and he reiterated his political ambitions of the weekend naturally said that the left can take back reveals presidency in the twenty twenty two election. Technically yes he's barred from running running for public office because of the conviction because of the charges against him but there were talks actually of a national tour in coming weeks or months where he set to meet with constituents truants. I mean there haven't been further details about that whether he actually manages to eventually become a candidate again. What is clear he seems to be trying to? Galvanize is in reinvigorate the left in Brazil because up until now there's been a distinct lack the plausible opposition figure to Bolsonaro since he took office a little over eleven months months ago and unloader appears to want to be just that. Do you think he will be able to be plausible political figure given the fact that he has got such a backstory that no one can forget get I mean for his detractors. Lulu still remains a highly controversial figure and is blamed for fostering a culture of corruption in Brazil and should be kept opt in prison. I mean I remember. When he was jailed back in April last year there were fireworks going off in parts of the country and celebration and also on Saturday? Although it wasn't as widely reported did but pro Bolsonaro groups really came together in the city of some Paolo in supported. The president's and to many of the millions voted for Bolsonaro in the last election. Lueders release piece is is a reminder of exactly why they did and there have been talks among political analysts early this morning that say that maybe it's not the best moves by the Workers Party to out him. At Center stage we see how in Argentina recently by putting polarizing but nevertheless still powerful figure Christina kitchener further in the background. You know she ran as vice president. That really paid off and she liked. Lula had a string of corruption related charges against her But being in the backseat so so yes. This is still very much up for debate at a whether it would be a a move sorts. Tell us a little bit more about what his the next move can possibly given the fact that he's barred from standing for office but nonetheless is not barred from speaking in public exactly so the charges haven't been dropped against against him what's changed. Since Thursday's Supreme Court ruling is that he can appeal but as a free man and very publicly before he had to exhaust. The appeals process from jail and this is also applied to thousands of other inmates here in Brazil his conviction relating to the beach side apartment stands and his lawyers said the over the coming weeks immediately. They're going to continue to appeal because he was serving this for eight years and ten months for corruption and money laundering and still faces a half a half dozen corruption. Trials luda still whoa denies all the charges and he's urging that they're politically motivated in order to keep him out of the presidential election and but for the moment you know the the main thing is that he's out in public. Listen to relate. Thank you very much indeed for joining his own monocle twenty four. Let's get more on this now. From Ovarian Fernando Pacheco Echo Fernando is native of Sao Paulo and was back home visiting his family over the weekend. In fact just off the plane hunting your finances so welcome to the studio. Just tell us a little bit more about what it it was like to be in Sao Paulo in your hometown and see Lula back in the headlines again. First of all he was such a surprise. I was not predicting This decision decision by the Supreme Court and when it was announced of course it was big news in Brazil it was on tv all the time. I had to cancel my evening plans because as a good journalist even on holiday today I was I mean He Luli such one of the most important political figures in Brazil ever in a way and as listened to say he's quite divisive You either loving or hating. It's very difficult to not have an opinion about Lula in a way and interesting. Because you know I'm from some Paolo which is actually political conservative states especially in recent years so perhaps I got a different vibe. I'm sure Lula has many supporters in the northeast. But where I was in symbolic impala could fuel a lot of people actually attacking the Supreme Court For our the ruling can be felt in the streets got it because I mean Brazil has never been Brazilians. Excellent never been backwards in coming forward and expressing their political opinion in the streets but Your mum is from Sao Paulo and she's a therapist isn't she says she's gentle lovely lovely soul anyone who's been lucky enough to meet Fernandez. Mother will have their life slightly enrich via. But you get but even she has been subject to political Michael victimization. Doesn't she's by simply going on. Line trolling is rife absolutely me Shirota. Something like democracy or on her social media and and so leaving among her group of friends people were attacking and some people start even swearing. I mean she even decided to delete that and it is true Even in Brazil some point I was covering the election eighteen. I kind of I felt kind of a some sort of fear when I was in the cab. If I wanted to express my political opinion lenient because people. They're very heated. They will call you names. I mean I'm not saying everyone does that but it is very heated moment In Brazil the moment dis. I think that the release of Leila a man who's who so intrinsically linked with Brazil's past and with all the corruption that goes was with it is the right person to change the political game in Brazil given the fact that Bolsonaro in many ways is an open goal given how deeply deeply unpopular he is with certain areas of society. This is so hard ammo because let's not forget. Lula is a fantastic reiter. I mean when he spoke when he was released released. I mean it was like Oh my God finally have a challenger to both scenario but I agree with you this is a man also who hated by many Brazilians and a person that that is hated by almost half of the population. I think it's quite hard for him to be kind of become president again for example. We don't have leaders Such such as Lulu or even a bolt sonar. We don't see a new generation coming up at least at the moment so it's going to be very hard and aggressive in check. I thank you very much indeed for joining me in the

"Police in Brazil have announced the first criminal charges against valley and its German safety fifty auditor to sued over fatal dam collapse in January that killed two hundred seventy people thirteen individuals were also charged seven from volley and and six from the German auditor the Wall Street Journal's Samantha Pearson has more from Sao Paulo. No everyone named today was relatively low level. So basically engineers manages oranges technical staff involved in safety audits of the damn the charges today with a crime of false representations police alleged safety auditors under pressure from Saudi employees basically covered up dangerous conditions at the dam. Today's charges were very important as the police is essentially confirming. The valiant of I said are criminally responsible for what happened in January. So this was not an accident as the chief investigator said today maybe they couldn't have stopped the damn come crashing down in genre but it could have cordoned off evacuated workers when they knew it was unsafe by saving all of those lives a lot depends on whether these charges actually lead to convictions and jail time in Brazil which has an interest slow moving justice system. If you remember same thing happens we'll be on a smaller scale in two thousand fifteen when mine waste dumb joined by valley eighty miles away also collapsed killing nineteen people now at the time. Somebody said it would make fundamental changes to the company in such a disaster would never happen again. As we saw in January it did so a lot depends now as well Brazil's mining regulators which have traditionally taken a hands off approach in Brazil as well as values own shareholders ready to put pressure on the company. Pearson says additional charges are expected in the months ahead.

The Amazon is he's burning as we now know in late August aerial photographs showing Sao Paulo plunged into darkness in the middle of the day stunned the world that day turn night eclipse lips was a mystery at first but soon it became clear that the cause was some eighty thousand fires burning thousands of miles away in the Amazon rainforest the F. Corporation the multibillion dollar owner of Timberland vans shoes and the north face does not want any part of it late last month it announced that it will stop buying vying Brazilian leather. It won't start again the company said until quote we have the confidence and assurance that the materials used in our products do not contribute due to environmental harm in the country so what does footwear have to do with fires well. The fires on the edges of the Amazon are result of deforestation the station in drought loggers farmers and ranchers cut down trees often illegally they also set fires to clear vast swaths of ranchland mostly to fulfill the world's growing demand for beef. There are fires in the Amazon every year but the number of blazes this year is up about eighty percent over last year according to CNN the news outlet reports that the growth in the blazes is purposeful a result of pro beef industry policies promoted by Brazil's president gyroscope scenario Brazil is the world's largest exporter of beef Bolsonaro says he is not to blame the Amazon rainforest plays a huge role in mitigating climate change. The area is so enormous that unharmed it produces about twenty percent of the world's oxygen BEF Corp says it makes about five hundred million products a year making it one of the largest users of raw all materials in its industry in its effort to improve the company sustainability. VF Corp has been overhauling its supply chain by twenty twenty one. The company claims it will reduce the environmental impact of its raw materials by thirty five percent. Now one of those materials is leather Timberland. You know the Conic Yellow Boot Company is. VF's largest leather user leather is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. That's because of land-use changes like clearing parts parts of the rainforest. It's also do the copious amounts of methane made by the cattle themselves v F says fifteen percent of its greenhouse gas emissions come from leather weather. It's largest contributors cotton at more than forty percent given its public commitment to cleaning up the supply chain. It's response to the Amazon fires. This makes sense. One of Timberland's biggest rivals is doc Martin maker of the iconic Black boot. The British brand earned revenues news of about three hundred fifty million pounds last year up twenty percent from the year before the much smaller brand has made no public supply chain commitment similar to those of the F. Corp but like the F. It belongs to a consortium called the leather working group which sources materials from tanneries that attempt to reduce the environmental impact of leather processing icing on its own the corpse decision isn't likely to have much effect on Brazil's commitment to fighting fires in the Amazon but often where one company goes rose so go others and when they do together they have an impact so to do shoppers who as we pointed out here more and more lately are increasingly concerned about where their products come from and what effects they may be causing.
