And then here's the real sad part, though Here's how the Beretta met its ultimate demise. Because then I took it to college a couple of years later. And in my fraternity parking lot, someone hit the front of the Beretta. And that person never identified himself or herself there a lot of females and all that lot too. You know, Girlfriend Stuff. House. How sweethearts Whatever. So the Beretta had this awful dent. And I just You know, my dad and I were like, Do we get them fixed? What do we do so that I moved on to weigh in old used Chevy blazer, and that was the end. So the Beretta had, like three or four real prime years.

The Walther PPK, the classic spy gun that changed the game
"Let's start off with one of the iconic pieces of technology. That james bond depends upon in practically every movie that's different from the novel series and the movie series but in the movies. He has a sidearm. The the vaulter or walter. Pk which is the one he carries. In most of the movies there is a point where he switches from the pk to the p ninety nine that would be in the movie tomorrow never dies and from there all the way through to casino royale. That's what he's using. But then it goes back to the p k. Now stands for police pistol detective model and you might think. Well where does the k. Come from it comes from the german word. Which is oh. Let's try this police. The police pistol criminal model. Oh boy i know. I butchered that one. Probably doing it better than i would. And and in german it is in fact pronounce vaulter. Yes yes yes. But in british and american where we say walter. It is spelled w. a. l. t. h. e. r. But the germans do not have a thaw sound. It's a it's a hard t or a d sometimes depending on what germany but at any rate so this is a very small gun which makes sense. It has to be concealable right. So it's a small gun. It's semi automatic. It's double action. It's pretty reliable. Yeah it's a often used in various law enforcement agencies throughout all of europe both the the Pdk and the p. ninety nine were and so it's one of those that you find all over the place in europe so made sets and in fact In the novels. I think he has a beretta. Originally in the first few novels he was carrying a beretta until a fan named joffrey are geoffrey boothroyd. I've clearly been watching. too much.

Royale movie with Daniel craig the jumping way ahead but in that film. Apparently he is convinced to hand over his beretta to trade. Up to the vaulter cute. I don't remember that. Because i've more or less blocked that foam from my mind. I have not seen it.

"When you hunt like you should well I don't but cuz I never wear outside English redneck, but if you log If you want to wear a time where some Tweeds it's the great experience, you know, yeah, that's the kind of opposite end of that. We have, you know, an amazing experience down in Argentina and Cordova where we are hunting high-volume Dove, you know, eating steak and having siestas in the afternoon before you know, before you hunt the evening Roost Thursday. It's a completely different experience but it is authentic. It's the traditional way that Pest Control in Cordova has turned into a multi-million dollar industry of American Hunters going to shoot High volumes of love challenging themselves. So there's really interesting shots, you know, and really immersing himself. In fact that you know, South American kind of amazing is you know, it's an amazing Place South America. So so there to kind of very different authors To do we have a couple of we have some some European Hudson South African hunts. So but those those two North and South Americans for me kind of you know, really dead put a kind of bow on what the trend program is all about. You know. Yeah cool. Well Corey we talked we definitely talked about the story of bread a little bit. We talked about guns and more of a general sense. But as we mentioned earlier September 1st, it's hunting season. If I'd like you to tell me a little bit about some of the guns specifically, let's just say for example, hypothetically guy or a girl comes back and says, I'm going to I'm going to be Upland bird hunting. I'm interested in a Beretta. What are my options? What are going to tell them Corey? Yes. I mean the first thing that I'm going to ask him is if they're after an over and under a semi-auto, you know, that's what I'm just one's kind of that's our go to if they're one that a a semi-auto I'm going to look right at we've literally have a gun called The a 400 Upland. It's a fantastic little gun club. As some recoil reduction as a perfect semi-auto for that, they're lightweight easy to haul around in the field all day. It would be my go-to if they want an over-and-under. I'm going to tell them to look at our pigeon line. You've got the Silver Pigeon one. That's our entry over-and-under tried-and-true. It's that 680 series action. They've just re-released came out with the the new Silver Pigeon Thursday. So we're really excited for that. That's got some upgrades to the technology not only in the barrels, you know the stock design. It's they've really, you know, it's not just some lipstick on his gun. They've really redone the technology on this gun as I was going to talking about earlier with the barrel technology and the kitchen ones, you know, so those are kind of my to go to is anything in that pigeon line is a great great start up the a 400 circular guns as well. What are the differences between the Silver Pigeon three and the Silver Pigeon one? What what is it? Is it what upgrade is it finishes? What are the differences them? So it's it's a lot of cosmetics and that's kind of what school I think about Baretta is you're not lacking on technology by going to one of these other models. Yeah, whether you get in a silver pigeon, what are Silver Pigeon V the action body the barrel technology that's going to be the same stuff. Now, once you start looking at the gun, the would grade is going to go up. It's going to be a nicer grade of would they actually change the checkering of it? And the pigeon threes there are subtle differences. Yeah, you get some nice game scene engraving as opposed to just the scrollwork that you get on a pigeon one. But as far as how long to shoot it, you've got the same gun. That's that's one thing. I appreciate about guns and they're not all that way. But I I like that when you can look at a gun that is less expensive and the reasons are often times attached to Wood engraving that sort of thing. But you know that you're shooting that same core components in that same action on that on that gun. That's maybe more in somebody's price range. I mean, I appreciate that off. Yeah, me too. You guys probably can't see it here tucked over behind me there. I've got a a 391 xtrema 2. That's the only thing that's a Beretta. I own I I probably shouldn't tell you guys this I almost thought about a year ago because I haven't been duck hunting. I love that damn gun. It's it's as reliable as any other gun I ever had but I haven't duck on it in probably ten years. Well last year I went out and I I took that got killed my first turkey. So now I'm keeping it. I love it. Yeah that gun pretty much fathered the a 400.

"York but you know the the domestic tourists or they're the guys that are here on business who are just amazed that we were here on Madison Avenue amongst all of this sort of well-off families boutiques and you know, it's just it's just bizarre to people because New York has got this sort of you know sell guns in New York what you're you know, which is you know, it's an amazing thing to see people's faces and then once they realize we're here this is a destination for them every time they come to New York, you know, we have guys that are on business fly to New York on boxes that make a point of coming seeing me or one of the guys in the shop or you know, you know just just make a point of that. You know, they Googled it and they found them. Yeah, we're you know down here so, you know, it's a really that's a really cool cool thing. But you know most of our clients when they when they're in the shop to answer your question about what are they buying? What are they? You know, what time? My name's for it's you know, it's everything you know, I mean, we you know where we're at that point now, I think we've been open in New York over 20 years coming up on that down in Dallas jobs where you know people are not afraid and they don't think we're a boutique. They know that they can come in and they can hang out in public, you know get outfitted for opening day of dove season in Dallas in Texas, you know or out for themselves for their first pheasant hunt to South Dakota or shooting drink Hungarian partridge in Spain or their first high-volume dove hunting Argentina, you know, all you know, they just want to get their kid and tear that his first, you know, 20 gauge, you know, or they wanted my favorite clients. Yeah that the best you know, the the fourteen-year-old boy who's getting his first pereira's it's easily the best. They're the best sales of the wage. We love you know, yeah. Yeah limiting factor being you know, there's one in Matt. There's one in Manhattan. There's one in Texas. So not everybody. It's not right down the street from everybody. But the way that I would think about it. Let's go straight to the source. Let's go talk to the folks at Beretta. So it's good good to hear and I mean that's a big benefit with us. You know, I I have guys ask me all the time on the counter like why buy em, so we are the source like you said if you have a problem with it, if you bought the gun from me, I'm going to take care of the warranty work here and now so I'm not going to send it back to the the factory in Tennessee going to take care of it. Yeah. That's that's a service we offer to the guys that are buying from us. You can also come in and go hey, where is that? You know, I drop this off two weeks ago and it's not done yet you come in and you can talk to me and and know exactly you're not picking up the phone and calling and and hoping, you know running the auto, you know Gauntlet to get to speak to a person, you know the time. Have my cellphone, but that's what I was just about to say is that we have, you know, the relationship that we have with our customers, you know, look none of like a lot of other dealers in the country, you know, we have seven hundred dealers across the whole selling everything from em nines up to you know, detail 11. So, you know, it's not, you know, a dealer's have similar experiences. There are similar stores out there that offer the similar experiences, but you know, we there is something to be said for the relationships that we try to cover it here in the shop. We're not all about, you know off hand pumping them out. We want to you know turn people on to the Beretta lifestyle let them understand let them help them understand what it means to be a Beretta to be a varetta shooter and wage of our club and and hopefully, you know, when the in the hopefully still have a couple of guns along the way, you know, that's what we do. We spend some time with you in the beginning and we figure out wage. Are going to do with the gun what your experience level is where you're trying to get to you know, and then we decided I'm not going to turn around and give a guy that's never shot a claim his life Aditi 11 a.m. Unless you just adamantly says that's what I want to do. Yeah, mine. I'm not going to talk you out of it. But you know, it's not going to be my go-to. I'm going to try to get you suited for what you're doing. Yeah. Yeah. I'm in earlier. You mentioned the bread at Trident program. Do you want to dive into that a little bit? Yeah, that's a program that we've started a number of years ago. That is is it was it was an interesting concept up Franco Baretta had in his head, you know, and then obviously it ended up trickling down to an idea and we ran with the idea. So as you know, as long as we all know usually folks that are buying sporting guns from us want to go somewhere to use them whether it be the close range. Or a you know, local equipment egg hunt to a local wild, you know hunting environment to a high-dollar life International destination. So there are you know, people are going to go use those guns. They're not going to sit under their band and bust them out, you know, every few years. These are these are shooters that want to go shoot and there's a lot of places out there in the world that we you know that I wouldn't go myself. You know that you need a level just up there, you know, maybe the birds don't quite good enough. Maybe it's just a little grubby and yeah, so we decided to come up with a sort of an indoor stroll program. If you like. We looked across the world and sort of said to ourselves right? Let's pick a few launches that we like that are you know that have the right place. The right mix of hunting experience with attention to detail when it comes to customer service and the hospitality all wrapped up into one with the understanding that at its core this came directly.

"It's still that way and now my personal garage is that way too. It's just never going to have a car in it. But you know, he he wound up he was working at a store here in the Metroplex and the manager at Beretta at the time was looking for a new gunsmith and reached out to him and Dad called me and told me you know, he was going to go talk to him, but didn't he hopes and now we're both here. So yeah, they they they liked him he liked them and so he came on board and he's been here ever since were you suck? Can BB guns at ten years old how how how easy was it to pull you in know ten years old. He handed me a broom and he let me sleep the shop. He always thought you didn't want me to go into the same profession and you know one is better for me that whole story but after running around in college and chasing girls and drinking beer I decided that you know, probably this was a good idea for me. So you guys TJ's girls and drink beer in Texas absolutely just on the weekends then okay, okay, but he you know, I started doing work for him in Middle School really and just doing logbooks black guns and calling customers and logging them out and he wound up letting me work on guns when I got into high school and whenever I stopped losing Parts he started to pay me. So that was kind of it after high school went off to college and met me whenever I came back and started trying College here and the rest is history trying to get back in the shop as many times as I can. I still love doing the work, right? So what's wrong? Just inform a you know, is that we always talk in our world at least in the Beretta World about authenticity. We want to have an authentic experience. We want to wage. It's like anything in life really, you know, you want to if you want to go hunt up the birds the idea is that you're going to go on a wild bird. Yeah, you can go on a planet bird and we all have to offer the world we live in but you know, the ultimate is issued Wild Quail in south Georgia or ruffed grouse up in Vermont, you know, or you know, so that is the true authentic way of living the up and lifestyle right over your dog. Then you trained without a shock collar on him. You know, it's the whole city of the Holy Grail of you know, being a fantic right but you know in so in the stores we want out experience for our customers and the way we give that experiences through Thursday. Folks that work in the shops, you know, I'm a you know, I'm a passionate Quail Hunter we have up here and a passionate Target shooter at Anderson who you know off Targets in his sleep, you know, he is an amazing teacher. He's our gunsmith here. So he has that sort of gunsmith level of put some sort of thinking I'm a teacher and a coach likewise in Texas. We have core usually just explained, you know, he is, you know, he has this unique way of being able to deal with customers problems. Now from Joe's the salesman's perspective from a Salesman who is authentically a son of a gunsmith, you know, which is amazing thing. You know, we have we have guys in the shop who are hunted African we have guys in the shop who are really passionate, you know, Kiki, you know tactical guys, you know, you know, so there's a lot of characters like every gun shop hath Well, we always try to have this sort of unique, you know authentic way that we can kind of help our customers. Yeah, the certainly the Beretta Gallery sound like a place. I'd like to visit just based on everything that I'm kind of Head Over Heels into but knowing that knowing that you can go buy a Beretta at in other places. What are the what is on your mind of the people that come into the gallery? Are they? I imagine it varies but do they have a trip coming up that they're looking for a specific gun? They're looking for a custom gun. I mean is there is there anything tangible that separates somebody that might come into the gallery versus maybe somebody that goes and grabs a 391 off-the-shelf. I'll tell you there probably is but there shouldn't be right. So, you know, I I think one of the things that I am taking back by all the time is yeah, we're in this really nice area of town. But until guys all the time don't be afraid to come talk to us. We're selling everything at the same price at Cabela's is wage. Somebody else we're not cranking the price up and and we get everything from the guy that just was walking by cuz you know, his wife was buying shoes over at Jimmy Choo installed Beretta and thought hey, maybe the place for me and it turns out it is to you know, the people that are going on a driven hunt and and Scotland or England and they know what they want. They know what they need and they come, you know specifically looking for whether that's the outfit or the gun or you know, just a few accessories they need to add to what they already have but I don't feel like there should be a difference, you know. Yeah, it is to say It's a situation similar, you know deal up here in New York. We tend to get the biggest response or reaction. We get from Focus holyshit wage here on Madison Avenue. We got a lot of customers from all over the country, you know and and all over the world but practically dead..

"Know now we do sell a lot of expensive guns here in the city, but we're we're still you know, we still sell about the same amount of guns in New York Dollar Wise as Dallas Dallas sells a lot more off no pistols a lot of value. So that's you know, kind of interesting, you know, but their heart they still feel the same when you go yes, you know wage. Yeah. It's it's unlike both of these stores are unlike any other gun shop I've ever been in in fact the the very first time I made a trip up here to the gallery to visit him. Just to come see the new place that Dad worked. I walked in the front door and looked around. We sell very nice Italian sport coats and shrimps and and you know Freaks and all that stuff for your driven hunts in Europe. I walked in the front door and looked around and turned around went back to my car and call them. What's the address again? There was no way I was in the right place, but there is a beautiful stores there. Just elegant. There's a smell when you walk in. It's rich leather and Gun oil and you know, we've been asked many times. If only we can make a candle off like crazy. Yeah. I got a buddy that would buy a bunch of those candles. Yeah. We have like Taxidermy and skins and share, you know. It's definitely, you know, a masculine store. But you know, it's just not as it's not as kind of redneck as a lot of birth. A lot of our store a lot of our gun dealers are I notice it's like the rednecks cuz I'm I'm a classic example of a an English read name. What what defines an English read back in looking at it, you know, listen if we got a few bills right now, you're here at whole different side of me. I love that poem. Well, I'm I mean the this Upland hunting thing in these circles enough to know that a lot of times people will talk about sort of the finer aspects of shotguns and that sort of thing and kind of talk about in a condescending way and I I see that plenty but what why it interests me is again harkening back to the history these things these things are they're anchored in about five hundred years of history and they're not they're they're things that don't just evaporate and go away. So trying to understand the context for the Beretta lifestyle if you will and where these things come off. I appreciate the initiative that Baretta takes to say hey our guns are being displayed in a way that that's that's not where that's not where the inspiration that's not where the artwork came from. So let's try to show people that if they want to see it now for everybody else. You can go buy a Beretta gun just about anywhere. I mean you guys have you distribute all over the place. That's what I think glorious things about Baretta is wage are the only Firearms manufacturer that makes everything from a 3 and $400 handgun up to $200,000 hand-engraved, you know work of art SF right off there just aren't companies that cover that entire Gambit. Yeah. Yeah. The spectrum is is huge and maybe that should be a good point to dive in there a little bit Cory. Well, I'm definitely going to talk to you about some of the things that are on a little bit lower end of the spectrum, but talk to me about you know, with your Gunsmithing background and stuff talked to me about what you know, what could the the high-end wage? Spectrum look like if somebody wants a custom bespoke shotgun for bird hunting what might they be looking for. Yeah Beretta catalog it becomes if you want that full custom bespoke. You want to look at RSO 10. This gun can be the limit of this gun is your imagination? Yeah. I have literally seen one of these that was built that had old classic cars African animals engraved on it cuz that's what the guy was into. It was one of the most bizarre engraving mashups I've ever seen but those were his passions. So we made it a lot of these guns, you know start out as just an idea and and I honestly think that a lot of guys when they pitch it to us and go hey, I was thinking about this they don't really think it'll come to fruition but we make it happen. We send the ideas to our are engraved they draw up sketches and they put these things together, but that a certain you get to pick your would you know, we'll send you pictures from Italy and say well we've got these six blanks. Which one do you like? You know, you get to Pig Engraving if you want a rubber pad if you want it to be a checkered, but if you want an ivory site or a gold site or no sight at all, you know, whatever you want. We will make that gun for you. You know, it truly is your imagination is the limiter on that fact the beautiful thing. I know this is something that I it's not it wouldn't necessarily be unique to bread or the gun world, but it's something I've thought in the past where when you have a company that makes a product in this case. We're talking shotguns on the highest end of the spectrum, but then they also make guns that are up at a way more than a table level for many people. That's the same company dabbling in both of those spaces and I think a lot of times the consumers that are at the ground floor, they're benefiting from The Cutting Edge divestment engineering technology that you're putting into those guys at the top and we're company that doesn't play in both those spaces, you know, they're going to pull they're going to pull from other areas, but it's all it's all in House at Beretta abstract. Italy and and you see that a lot we came out with a barrel technology..
"beretta" Discussed on Project Upland Podcast
"Every conflict. So the past five hundred years so, you know, that's a lot of guns still off. A lot of a lot of a lot of armaments, you know, so so we do have that massive massive history. We are still to this day building Barrel action bodies, you know components are doing research all of this stuff in the original Factory that we first made those barrels in back in about five hundred years ago. So it's very cool and according to tell you, you know, visiting the place, you know, perhaps you can type in and just yeah just kind of give your like one of his life to visit the way it is, you know, it's pretty awesome. Yeah. So coming from you know, the Gunsmithing background and growing up underneath the gun bench. This was like my Chuck-E-Cheese, you know, it was a place to go hang out and getting every month and cranny and look at everything I could and I think one of the coolest things is mr. As we see him and you don't get to just go in there all the time, but we got the opportunity to go in bath. And whenever you walk in all along the left hand side of the the room our firearms that were manufactured by Beretta or they were manufactured by six people in the towns and Villages around garden and they submitted them as you know, prototypes and suggestions to the Beretta family to to build their guns. And then you look on the right-hand side of the wall off Mister Burrell allowed any company to put a military type weapon in his Museum so long as it showed a vast jump in the technology so you can go and you can literally start at the age the the room and walked from you Flintlock cap involve muskets all the way up to modern-day a ours, you know, the a rx200s at the military uses, you know, all the facts really Advanced weapons and everything in between. So that that is one of the coolest experiences. I've had kind of to Ian's Point as well about It all being in the original Factory the first time I went none of it made sense. You had heat treat on one side of the factory. You had Barrel making on another and the reasoning was as land came available, Loretta got bigger and bigger. They just bought the land built built the you know manufacturing and went and so I was actually there as they were starting to move all of those processes around and all of those departments bounce. It would be one streamlined process from the beginning all the way to the end. So it was interesting to see how it was setup. And then the second time I went back see how they had changed it. That was pretty cool. What is the place? What is it? Like where the headquarters is it? Is it a big city? Is it a small City? What is it? What is a place like, it's small it's very quaint. It's you know, it's a village just real City, but the whole time you're.

"A storage obviously now the main man down there and he's our he's our head guy at the shop down there and he said he runs the show for us, but you know, he started as a part-time gonna turn. It's kind of a fun kind of a fun story in met me. My father is our Master gunsmith here at the store in Dallas. So he's been working here for a number of years off and Ian came on board and wound up meeting me. I was working for Dad at the time doing Gunsmithing and trying to learn everything I can and trying to find a place in this world, you know and fell in love with it and gave me a shot work in sales, which I'd never done doing that part time and over the years. I've I've managed to work my way up the ladder that way as I've I always believed it I came home. Service industry background and always really appreciated those guys that had been the busboy and the bartender and the wait staff and worked up through all of that. So I've kind of done that in this world and I I appreciate it for myself just cuz it gives me kind of a different perspective on a lot of different things. Yeah, you know dovetailing into that. It's interesting and not to go down a rabbit hole with you or anything like that to hide off of you here, but I do think it's kind of fascinating that when we open this shop in New York. It was opened by a couple of colleagues of ours, you know twenty plus years ago. And at the time I'm Frank over every now runs many many divisions of our company is obviously one of the owners was actually working in the shop here. He was a you know, he would be down selling a product. He was living above the stories fact. I think his apartment was the room that I'm sitting in now, but that was probably his fireplace thing behind me. But yeah, it was you know and off. He is a firm believer that you know as we both are is that you know, you you can't manage from you know, from a from a roof somewhere. You have to manage and understand your customers, you know from the shop floor from you know, meeting people everyday understanding what it is. They want what they need, you know, things are work things that don't work and and you know, just having a good rapport and a good camaraderie with you know, with the customers goes a long way to help, you know build loyalty and obviously sales, you know, yeah. Well, we're definitely there are so many different directions could go with this conversation and I what I don't want to do is take for granted that probably everybody listening to this podcast has heard the name Beretta and that is for a very specific reason the company that has been around for what are we at five hundred years in almost? Yeah. Yeah. So five hundred years. There's you know, there's only so many companies that have that kind of a history and that could literally you know the world Changed around Baretta. Baretta has been a constant through the changing world and needs and demands of shotgun consumers and obviously bread as much bigger than shotguns. But let's let's just talk a little bit about the history and we can only cover so much of it. But do we have a can we can kind of bring us from the start to where Brett is today in a succinct way? Yeah, I'll give you like the Reader's Digest version and then that perhaps Corey can pipe in and and give a little bit of a commentary on you know, his experiences visiting often too in Italy which is where you know, which is where we are and we always have been but yeah five hundred years ago, the Italians had a problem. He wasn't problem that wage couldn't find weapons. They couldn't find you know things to shoot other people with or to blow up other other ships with a cetera. It was a problem that off. Was directly related to their barrels blowing up and the the Berettas or Pho Beretta the very first choice brother had really figured out how to build how to build these barrels that wouldn't blow up. So the Venetian Army had heard about this and travelled all the way up to to go donate which is in Northern Italy by the Dolomite mountains. He traveled from Venice all the way up there, which if you imagine five hundred years ago traveling down distance wasn't you know, you didn't get in your Ferrari off in drive up there. You know, you were on a donkey for about you know a month to get up there. So he went up there figured it out signed a deal as you do and bought off these barrels and that I guess was the Genesis of Morena so and we've always been known as a company from day one up until today. Yep. Company that that has products that are super reliable and that really is the sort of that's the guts behind our firm. There's a lot of other things we do and we do write a wonderful but it's the reliability, you know, and being on the Forefront at the time imagine this, you know, you're in the middle of nowhere, you know, chopping trees down, you know, mining all to build these battles to you know to help you know, the Venetian Army, I mean, you know, the thought of that is just is really mind off, you know, you just got to kind of think about a world and what the world was like back then to really understand it, you know, yeah, you know, so obviously five hundred years is a long time, you know off the Genesis and we've been through a lot with arms just about every standing army in the world, you know over pretty much.
Brazil wildfires destroy two million hectares of forest
"To Brazil for the next one, where fires have been raging. In the Pantanal region off the country since April. This is the walls largest tropical wetlands area. But the forest fires which have been raging there have destroyed more than two million. Hector's Are not. This piece is the founder of a Brazilian organization called the Institute for Conservation of Wild Animals, He says the situation is critical. The Pantanal has, you know a great diversity of fun and flora 22% of the Pantanal has been turned into ashes, and that means that the wildlife and the cattle Has been heavily impacted. You know, we talk about the impact some by diversity, but it has a huge impact. Of course on the people who live in the Pantanal, Andi live and work there who have lost their livelihood. The pasture which will feed their cows. And for biodiversity. Of course, it's tragic because you know, the Pantanal has the highest concentration of so many species. There is Mortals. All three areas without our famous for the best sightings of Jaguars have been completely burnt and so it's very, very tragic. What's happening to the wildlife and they do not have time to escape. And when they escaped their feet get burned, and they'll get sever, severely injured and just to give you an idea of just how about things are Brazil's national space for such agency says the number of forest fires there has almost troubled compared to the same period last year. Campolo Marital is a forest engineer and deforestation researcher of environmental group Amazon every year until now has our wet season in the dry season. But these regions become drier, and this year is a record in six years when you combine days with people setting fires, too. Clear land for pastor. Then you have these men made activity and then the climate situation When you look at these figures, a 6 to 1% rising to fires. In the rainforest. Wouldn't we deduce from that? A Sfar as the forests go san. What does it tell us about the forest? Indicates off the Amazon. If I'm mostly associating with deforestation for the Rangers, for example, they cook the forest and then they set fire to clear the land. So most of the first station is associate with they're clearing off the land for planting grass is for pasture. Then some of these air the fries escapes to other areas, including What we call degraded forest. The cut a portion of the trees just to have the team but not too clear. Cut all the area, but by doing so they degrade the forest in that area becomes more prone to fire. So it is obviously a recurring problem. How do you address that, while taking care of their needful posture on all the other elements that might cause The degradation that would result in the fire. You know, The first thing is to stop deforestation, and some people may say where we need more land to increase the production. But that's not true because we already have here. There is very big, but it's underutilized. There's about 90 needed. Hector's off degraded faster. Ah, lot of this area can be restored to improve for land use. You have to invest train of the people that are walking on those areas, So we need more of that. Also when the government was tough against the first station, people invested in increasing productivity rather than increasing the areas ofthe best, So it's obviously very important what the government thinks. And you're talking about a time when the government was tough. Are you saying The government is not tough at the moment of the government is not doing what it should be doing well, these government started two years ago, They started by saying, Yeah, let's open more areas. There was a mind set that has bean reaction against these. Even some investors are saying that they may stop investing preserve. Some have stopped and some people are saying that they're not going to import agriculture products from Brazil. Despite this pressure, the government has bean kind of erratic, for example, device because that now coordinates Amazon Council it is supposed to enforce law against the first station, But the president continues to talk about. Well, there's not a problem. We need to increase production. The conversation is confused in that environment. What prevails is the word of the president. And we obviously keeping an eye on that. Under the stories relating to the Amazon. This one those thoughts are bipolar Beretta Forest engineer on deforestation, researcher With an environmental group called Amazon.

God In Critical Condition
"Millions Express concern. Today is the Lord God Maker of Heaven and Earth was rushed to the hospital after accidentally shooting himself while cleaning his gun. Opr's afterlife correspondent thaddeus Lawson joins us now. Then let's get to it. Is God going to survive this accident? Leslie I'm standing outside. The Mayo Clinic. Were just moments ago. Doctors have assured us that following surgery. God's condition is stabilising. He's currently under observation. Doctors say as of now the wounds do not appear to be life threatening. That's a relief. Do we know what happened. Authorities believed that God's shot himself in the thigh while cleaning his Beretta nine millimeter semiautomatic pistol. Witnesses reported hearing a loud gunshot at approximately seven forty five. Am Heaven Standard. Time followed by the king of kings stumbling interview clutching his leg and shouting. Oh Fuck Oh shit. It hurts so bad. Well that's certainly concerning but it sounds like it could have been a lot worse. Oh absolutely as you know. God is a major gun collector. And if he had been cleaning his AK or his Mossberg five hundred the Almighty's injuries could have been far more serious. Dr Heidi Snow was present for the surgery. Here's what she had to say. Fortunately God missed any major arteries and we were able to extract the bullet fairly routinely. There may be some permanent scarring on the leg but honestly it's a little hard to tell because he's just so so right now thaddeus got his obviously very high profile patient and the fact that he was hospitalized for a self inflicted. Gunshot wound sparked a national conversation about firearm safety. There are hundreds of fatalities from accidental. Gun deaths each year not even counting the celestial around. Do you have any advice for our listeners? On how to avoid an accident like this yes responsible gun owners are reminded to always double check to make sure their firearm isn't loaded before cleaning it. In addition experts advise that you should never ever point the muzzle of a gun towards you whether you're the divine creator or so. When do we expect God will be released while as you know? God's a real fighter and we expect that there will be a relatively short recuperation time. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if we see him back out on. Heaven's shooting range in the next day or two. Well let's hope so. Thank you
