Brazilian Beaver

The Famous Canadian beaver (Castor Canadensis) is the second largest rodent in the world next to the Capybara. While the Capybara is thriving in it’s South American climates, like Venezuela, its much smaller rodent cousin Castor Brazilensis is not faring as well. Unrelenting clear cutting along the Amazon in Southern Brazil  is threatening the habitat of this much smaller rodent. Like the Canadian beaver the Capybara is able to manage a wider range climate conditions, however the Castor Brazilensis is much more vulnerable to temperature. Efforts to re-establish Castor Brazilensis in cooler climates have failed. None of the transplanted Brazilian beavers survived the winter in the Washington State’s Olympic National Park. Clearly this charming, industrious and vulnerable creature can only survive in its native habitat within Brazil’s wet lands. Clear cutting exposes beavers to harsh penetrating climates. It is time for beaver lovers everywhere to stand up and push for harder regulations in Brazil’s wet lands.

Killer Marketing Plan

It really isn’t their fault. The Russel Williams Restaurant has been serving up delicious breakfasts for many decades . Unfortunately the moniker for their shop is the same as that of the stalking fashion categorizing killer Colonel Willy.  In a typically Burlingtonian display of support for our troops the owners will be renaming the Colonel Russel Williams Restaurant to either the Paul Bernardo Bistro, or the Clifford Olson Cafe. In light of the upcoming name change the Russel Williams Restaurant will no longer be delivering their famous breakfasts directly into the bedrooms of their patrons, and they will abandon their tight staff uniform requirements.
