This is Morning Edition from NPR News. I’m David Greene Pope Francis visited Bangladesh today and in a meeting with dignitaries . He called for them to care for the Status of Refugees .
This was so many Daddy you I thought they food Jacqui I finish making maths narrow the Iraqi name of it in the early June be bad.
Just a rough translation there. He said that in the next month . The spirit of generosity and solidarity the characterizes the Society of Bangladesh manifests clearly and humanitarian for the refugees that have fled en masse from the state of wreck . I’m looking for the things , one needs to live now as he did in Myanmar . The pope did not mention the Rohingya people by name instead just talking about refugees from recline state in Myanmar . I wanna turn to the entire Sylvia Poggioli , who is traveling with the pope I .
Was this omission a big deal.
Well , I think it’s simply follows what he was saying in Myanmar. There he was hit in the advice of the local Catholic Church you know he was there this morning . This is just a few hours after he left Myanmar their he still is following the church vice 2 not use the name , which is a very polarizing named in of Myanmar society , the great majority . The Buddhist-majority consider the broken glass illegal migrants who come from Bangladesh , although they have been living for generation to generation skin in Myanmar , the Vatican but perhaps less of little bit embarrassed yesterday by one of the local bishops Bishop Johansson .

If you you.
Okay. Wanna see if you can pick out the common ingredient here what is used to make designer guitars furniture in China and the instruments used by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra dancer here’s Rose would and the worldwide supply of Rose . Word is dwindling . There is an international effort to save Rose would trees but as NPR’s Robert Penn Casa reports it’s having some unintended consequences .
At the Martin guitar factory workers say slabs of wood into iconic instruments Martin guitars have been played by the likes of John Lennon and John Mayer one material responsible for the guitars coveted sound.
Rose word gossip as we live in a sound room just off the factory floor Martin engineer Josh.
Parker has 2 guitars sign one as a DA 18 who’s back and sides are mahogany. The other is a Rose would deal 28 , he’s going to play both of them to help me here . The difference .
Mahogany is little dryer sounding it has a strong fundamental tone , with an emphasis on bright clear troubles missiles , I guess.
And weren’t as very resonant has a deep or maybe Stewart has tons of overtones and a lot of Harmonic complexity.
Now a relatively small amount of the world’s Rose would find its way to Pennsylvania to make music Martin says it will use less than 50 cubic meters of it this year , much more of it goes to China to make furniture.
China imported nearly 2 million cubic meters of Rose wood logs just in 2014 with an appetite that big loggers traffickers and politicians around the world have been depleting and fighting over rows with stocks so late last year , members of a worldwide endangered species treaty , known as societies passed sweeping regulations on international trade of Rose would musical instruments containing any amount of Rose would suddenly became subject to a complex time consuming permit system Martin which exports 40% of the guitars at makes says it lost millions in sales. CF : Martin , the 4th is the company’s CEO .
I’ve got 1,000 employees and the only reason that everyone kept working is cos I made the decision to keep them working but this has been extremely disruptive to my family’s business.
Martin and another top US maker of acoustic Qatar’s Taylor say the regulations are missed.
