"Directives specifically states that the prosecutor's office will not file a possession of contraband charge if a search that uncovered the contraband stemmed from an infraction related stop, which is the case here. Two things though, one, I don't know if the fact that identification marks the serial number on the gun being scratched off. Impacts the status of this case as it pertains to this new statute or not or if any marijuana was involved or not. But I believe marijuana is legal in the state of Michigan. So that should not be in play here. Regardless, there are obviously some questions that have not been answered yet. Why was imani Bates driving his friend's car? Will he get back on the court eventually? Unfortunately, and this is, this is an unfortunate byproduct of this and you can't control how people think or react to the things that you do, I guess. But, you know, I heard from a few coaches in the past 24 hours, they're like, ahmadi Bates is on the fast track to being the next Lenny cook. Lenny cook being an infamous example of a once super, super highly touted prospect. In fact, once played against in a high profile grassroots game played, the king, the king, LeBron James, exactly. And those two players obviously took very divergent paths there. But I'm not going to make anything close to a leap and saying that because imani Bates had to spend a night in jail over this incident that his college career has done, the story is done. It's not a positive development. That's for sure. We don't know if he did or did not know if the gun was in the car. At all. There are undoubtedly factors surrounding the story that have not been made public yet, that I've not come to light, but I did see, I think this was the athletic with Dana O'Neill and Brendan quin pointed out that if he were to get charged and prosecuted in the case, the EMU student handbook actually would dictate that he would not be eligible to play basketball. So that does stand to be something in the future there. But all other things on the street, and then it's all yours. I've been told that actually since getting to eastern Michigan, like it's been really, really good. It's been more than copacetic, it's been great there. There was a little bit of, I guess, EMUs and Adidas school, imani is obviously been a Nike athlete forever, so that actually impacted when he could officially sign them announcing him being added to the roster. So there was a little bit of stuff with that. But for the most part, it has been a very happy marriage between the Bates family and that program. They are from the area. They are literally from ypsilanti where EMU is based. And here we have it. You don't want to be caught in this kind of story, no doubt about it. GPU well know over the past two decades of cover in college basketball that the one month where coaches get a little freaked. Is this month? Players going back to school. They're not in practices. The off season headlines getting in trouble over something like this has been a thing in college basketball forever. And here's Bates. We wait on more. He will be in court or at least scheduled to be in court. We'll see what's up with that statute or not in the first week of October. I've seen people ask big questions. My first question would be, why did they search the car? Like, what. Was going on with that situation that made them think so we're going to search your car? So that's interesting to me. We don't know the answer to that yet. If this is strictly because I've seen some people be like, well, why would he be driving somebody else's car? I don't know, young people do this. I don't borrow other people's cars, but I can remember when I was young, and I'm not saying what happened with the money, I had no idea. But it's not outrageous to me to think of a plausible story where a 19 year old was in somebody else's car. I can remember being at parties. I was like, hey, GP, we're going to run and pick up this study, but you got me blocked in. Just take my car. You know, I'm not saying that's what happened here, but I've thrown my keys when I was younger. Throw my keys to a million different people, take in other people's keys. It's not impossible for me or even difficult for me to believe a story that he took this car. It didn't know what the gun was in it. Got pulled over. It's a bad situation. It looks bad. We all agree, but he was just borrowing somebody's car. It is nothing more than that. And if that's what this is, that it won't make me think any differently of anything. And it shouldn't make anybody else. But if that story doesn't hold up, if the prosecutors come back and be like, all right, yeah, it was somebody else's car, technically, but he's been driving that car for three weeks. You know, or we have reason to believe his fingerprints are on the gun. You know, like if there's anything that comes back bad, then it's bad. But if it is as innocent as the lawyer presented it, then I think this is just a bad headline, but not necessarily the end of anything. But if prosecutors push back on those theories, then you've got real problems if you're a Monte Bates, because now suddenly you're one terrible prospect who was a bomb at Memphis. Now you're back at eastern Michigan. You haven't measured well. You haven't shown yourself to be a good player in years. And now you've got to, at the very least, some really poor decision making on your Wikipedia page as well. At some point, NBA franchises say, eh, I don't want to deal with this. He hasn't been good in a while. Get gun charges. We'll pass. And enough of them pass. You don't have a job in that league where forever. People thought you were going to end up. Ultimately, for amani, assuming, let's just take the lawyer story at face value. If that's the story and this gets pushed away and handled one way or another and he's on the court. Like we talked about before, if I were advising them,

"Civilian casualties in strike. The house belonged to zimraya ahmadi. Who was the target of the strike. It was his car that had been hit inside the courtyard as he was coming home and his brother told me that what had happened was normally the kids in this house because he lived with his three brothers who all had families children in this home. They ran out in the street to greet him coming home. They're excited they get in. The car would sit behind the wheel maybe in his lap and they would help him back the car into this little courtyard and he's at the motor was still running. He used sitting room heard the sound of his brother. Coming in faith meyer sound. The motor was still running when there was a blast and the windows blew out. He got to his feet and asked his wife where the children and then went outside and saw a dead nephew on badly wounded in the face and torso by shrapnel and he saw another kid who was dead and a lot of fire and smoke. And that's my neighbors came and pulled him out of there they'd already been reports on social media and in some local afghan journalists had reported that there'd been children kill and civilian casualties so we were definitely aware that that was what might have happened. But when i got there and saw for myself you know that this is this. Family's home were in agony. You know grief-stricken all their neighbors were gathered around sort of angrily saying how could the. Us have done this family. It made it real and it made it very obvious that there have been civilian casualties. So what we now know. Is that the ten people who died in the strike. Were zebra my d. You know who is forty three years old and then three of his children Zamir who's twenty five sixteen farzad ten years old mister amadou's cousin nassir who's thirty. Three of his brothers. Children are wing seven benjamin. Six in hiatt was two years old and Two three year old girls malakand samaya got back on the bike headed home and started working on the story. You know trying to get it out. And there was many other stories written that day by different media organizations. This is a fairly accessible site in kabul even though obviously it was under taliban control and a war zone in a sense and i think it kind of dropped off the news. Forbid there's there's a lot happening afghanistan during that time but we definitely felt like as needed to follow up so we. I told the family that i would keep investigating so we did part to the investigation. While i was at the scene of the strike i was shown a business card that belong to the man who had been targeted in the strike. Showing us an engineer for nutrition education international california-based charity that was using soybean production to fight malnutrition afghanistan so i wrote in the office of his company which was closed. After they're calling have been killed. They shut it down but his boss would actually seen at the site of the strike. Came in and sat with me Co worker and they also wanted to clear their colleagues name because they were certain that this guy who had worked the companies as jobs six and was the nicest guy to them was not a isis facilitator so i went in and sat down with them and we looked the camera footage and kinda correlated the different scenes that would show what he was up to that day and ultimately appear in the video that we published in the times and you know we started seeing him show up in the morning with his colleagues. Get out you can see him on. The office. wave to the cleaner and come out again and he went for drive with some other colleagues on preplanned visit to basically a range to deliver some food to refugees who had camped out in the park and crucially. What we saw was him. Fill up some containers. The water you can actually see the water stream from the hose and he put those in the trunk of his car. These are actually containers. That i had taken a picture of at the site shredded. These plastic jerrycan sort of could use for fuel or for for water. And you know that are also commonly used for improvised explosives in afghanistan at this point. Tell me Are you sure this is the wrong person. Are you unsure. Are you thinking this could be someone involved with isis k. What's going through your head as you're doing this investigation. I mean one of the things you try to do as an investigative journalist is always doubt your story you know. What's the saying if your mother tells you she loves you. Fact check it right. And so even though speaking with his colleagues family members who really loved having were grief-stricken i was opened the possibility that he had some connection with isis. I'm still in that possibility. We don't know if he maybe add some call someday but it says the wrong people whatever. That's a possibility but it doesn't really justify the taking a strike and crowded area when there were no explosives in the car. I wasn't sure what i would see that day. I wasn't sure what it would prove or disprove. When i saw the water jugs i was like. Wow this is significant. you know. This is something being loaded into the trunk of car that may be to a drone could look like a bomb. But it's actually just water. We see him with the hose with running water and as his colleagues explained to me he would do this from time to time. He would take home water to his family. Because since the collapse the government the deliveries water truck delivers his neighbors stopped. And you know like. I said it's a big family. So he was bringing home water from the office and i think the timing of him coming and going was also very important later on allowed us to kind of piece together where he actually was where the military said he was or whether you know the compound they identified for example as being a place for potential explosives. Reloaded on board will based timing. He was definitely happy any high office. So that.

With the taliban closing in the country was already running low on currency people were starting to hoard cash. We're meant trying to manage the economic situation. Which i i know.

Who would take over in case you had to leave and also doing regular office stuff but messages notes intel kept coming in that. The taliban had taken over this part of kabul that part that they were almost there so at that point i didn't feel as though is getting accurate information so i began to think that the city might fall that afternoon. And that's when. I decided to to leave for the airport. Why did you think you needed to leave right away. It wasn't clear.

"He won't see most of these nations sports men and women compete internationally but they can play in the world cup Why footed? Twenty. that was the memorable world cup final which cop talia beach northern cyprus on penalties to win last year's final of the world cup that the conifer world cup competition represents the hungarian minority in ukraine knief oh the confederation of independent football associations include breakaway states some regions such as yorkshire england and minority groups from some nations sasha is secretary-general fifty-five members on all six continents and the simple majority of them are minorities or regions and then there is a huge set of members that are unrecognized countries so all the post soviet independent countries for example like a pasi setia transnistria nagorno-karabakh but also northern cyprus ahmadi not western sahara they all their own khalifa in football if you look at places like abkhazia transnistria how important is it for the people who live that t._v. able to fly their flag international to be recognized on the on our world stage it's incredibly important and it probably more for them than it is for most nations to play in world cup and it's not only the case about recognition that is important for them to waive their own flag and hear their own national anthem before to match but most of all i mean they are seriously isolated most of them they don't have access to any international sports they are forbidden to play any football matches on home soil against any international opposition even if it's a club that wants to travel there it's just forbidden and the visiting club would be banned for many years so for them does breaking embargo and being visible in a way as people naturally it is very important of big deal for them so what some of these football teams like how would they fare against relatively good international side would qualify for the world cup that is very hard to tell but i would say that the top ten maybe fifteen of our teams are mostly full professional players that play and top leaks of fiba if you look at pasi third example about seventy percent of this court is playing in the russian premier league or in leaks of some of the standard estonian leak and serbian leak so the standard is quite decent i would probably compare them probably to northern ireland on a bad day than island on a bad day that's not exactly bringing endorsement of the quality of that bull i mean they wouldn't probably qualify for for people world cup but fevered has two hundred twelve members and they would probably be very much in midfield of that and the same is true for the top ten fifteen teams than most of our top teams are obviously than non-recognised countries because they do have a proper structure behind on the ground and they do have the resources to also pay players to that will sash the secretary general of coney
Why the 2019 Indian election feels different to 2014
"Today. We chat with one of the world's leading communists about India richer Shama from Morgan Stanley. He's argument is that in rural India old class divisions. Still rule local politics which could spell trouble for Narendra Modi in my elections, plus climate change student politics, a divide between two impressive school students. Stay with us for that. Well, you might recall Narendra Modi's landslide election victory five years ago. How to believe but twenty four nine huge landslide election victory Ahmadi. Now, we lived the BJP this is the Hindu nationalist party live them to power. This was the first Indian prime minister in thirty years to govern without a coalition any Hedda rare opportunity to enact market friendly reforms that had stalled under his predecessor Manmohan Singh now until relatively recently Modi's BJP was odds on favorite to be reelected. But such as the magic politics that Modi's chances of victory. And now fifty fifty says, my guest richer Shama is chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley investment management. And he's author of a terrific new book called democracy on the road at twenty five year journey through India as just out by penguin Random House richer. Welcome back to between the lines Gregory back with your own thing. What do you think Modi's? Reelection is no longer a sure thing I think that when I wrote the book, and he was coming across a very United opposition. You just mentioned about how you wanna landslide victory in two thousand fourteen but one very important statistic. From that election was that he only or his party only got thirty one percent of the total vote share in India, and he was able to win a majority of the seats because the parliamentary democracy is so fag minted in India that the opposition is quite divided and you get a disproportionate number of seats with even thirty percent of the vote. So what was changing over the Bosnia? Is that a lot of the opposition parties in India state by state were coming together to put up a United front against that removes? That's really what was changing and why at taught is fog ability or winning the election was now much more fifty fifty than sort of hundred percent probably than most bookies were giving him. I'd say. Euro even to ago now, the only thing which has changed, and this is the changing nature of politics and any country, especially in India is the last couple of weeks they've had this escalated tension between India and Pakistan, and that's sort of please into Modi's hand. So I would say that once again, the the momentum has shifted back in his favor. Just because of the very unexpected develop in that taking place over the past few weeks, the accidents of history we've had on this program. Several times of the last five years, Richard Soudan, undo my from the American Enterprise Institute, you know, and he said that in two thousand fourteen there was an ABC mood that is anybody, but congress this is the the left of center ruling party for so long in India's history. You don't really see an anti Mody y emerging. Then do you know, I think if election is not about that his base remains pretty much intact. But I said the big difference that the opposition is coming together in many states. I'm critical battleground states such as the most populous state of India with really two hundred million people in such critical states the opposition is coming together. And when they do that, then typically the the leading party tends to be in trouble. That's the history of Indian politics. So that to me is the big dynamic at currently. Yes. So in a way, you're saying that these elections in my they more likely to shape up as a series of state contests. It's not really a nationwide contest between Mody and congress is it. That's right know, that the outside world likes to think of it that way because the two names that sort of resonate most with the outside world. I I now in the Gumby dine in but it's important to member that booties. Put together the total vote share in. India is Bailey fifty percent five zero. And so the other half is about all these regional parties in India. And that's really what I've tried to bring out in my book, which that this is the story of many India's India's less a country that our continent like the European Union with many states Funk's practically functioning like countries. And I think that that is the story of India which gets lost in translation to the outside world often. Now, this new book of yours democracy on the road. It's the result of your travels through India following election campaigns, pretty much since the lighten awning ninety south of the last twenty years, and you Rauch quote in an era when democracy is said to be in retreat worldwide, it's thriving in India. Yeah. That's the curse of the fact that when I've traveled for these elections, I find it soon remarkable that despite only advantages that the incumbent
An Italian Town Fell Silent So The Sounds Of A Stradivarius Could Be Preserved
"Support for NPR and the following message come from Amelia Island, Florida a barrier island on the northeast coast that captivates visitors with thirteen miles of uncrowded beach championship golf, natural beauty and a historic district Amelia Island dot com slash NPR for the next few minutes. We're going to visit Cremona Italy. It's the hometown of stratovarius, and it's where for five weeks the whole town had to stay quiet. The reason musicians and recording technicians are trying to save the unadulterated sound of the legendary instruments for all posterity. Christopher live say explains. That's a Stradivarius cello inside the concert hall of the violin museum in Cremona. Italy. It's the same town where master Luthier untold Neo strata, very crafted his storied, instruments three centuries ago. But there's no guarantee that sound will survive for centuries. More says Fausto Katcha toady the museum's chief conservator qualify. Swollen questions remain. Fahed which Antoine. What will these instruments sound like in two hundred years? I hope they can still be played. But you never know. All it takes his one unfortunate event. An earthquake for instance, think about what happened to so much art during World War Two. Okay. Do you want to catch a Tory says stratovarius needs twenty-first-century failsafe and someone who understands music, but also technology someone like a DJ we played with chemical broaders with a lot of Bhagat this during our career when he's not spinning records. Leonardo Tedeschi runs audio zone. The sound engineering firm that had an idea to bring the sound of. And make accessible on the ward by recording it, and saving it in a database that future composers can use to make their own music electrically. The violin museum in Cremona agreed and enlisted world class musicians to play four instruments made by stratovarius as well as other masters Ahmadi and guate- natty, but that doesn't mean recording complete songs by save a volley or Verity rather, it means painstakingly recording every possible note. Every possible note and even more difficult every note transition so like Nana Nana Nana. One note to all the other wanting the same. These are very complicated process. So there will be several hundred thousand five to be detected, but not so fast Tedeschi takes me outside the museum to show me. The thorn in his side. A woman drags a suitcase across the cobblestones. Then. A street sweeper you name it if it's close enough to the concert hall. It's audible to the thirty two hyper sensitive microphones during recording of retirement that we do sound the sound with mix without water frequencies of the Roman. And so we cannot use that sound. Tedeschi went to the mayor of Cremona. My name is Gelu bandy and ask for help lucky for him. The mayor is also the president of the stratovarius foundation. He understood what they needed was the filings around that the museum of violent about the I think that we understood the importance of the project, so he asked the people of Cremona to please keep it down and blocked traffic around the concert hall during recordings on this wintery day a security guard stands watch beside a metal barricade journal. I tip toe past him into the quiet zone. This is what it sounds like. When an entire neighborhood has to take a bow of silence. Try a might it's impossible to block out all the sound. All the time says Thomas critic the chief recording engineer inside the concert hall. You hear it? Let me just put this up woman now doing slam a KADO outside. You can barely hear it on the second pluck. But it's enough to contaminate the recording and throw off the musicians after playing for eight hours a day six days a week for five straight weeks. They finally wrapped up earlier this month. It's a level of devotion Antonio Stradivari with likely appreciate after all attention to detail.
