"Have to make a new violin out of this. I really like that storyline too because it's also about self acceptance. Yeah. And then later on, she finds out that there is a female luthier or the twist of her storyline comes when she finds out that her skills stem from an ancestor with her exact circumstance like a female year who was ostracized by her family, a part of the ahmadi family who I guess is that a real life. Yeah. And the ironic thing is that her skills, which it gets transferred down in the form of obsessive compulsive violin making focus and skills. It stems from an angelic blessing. It's time some of the other side. Which is something that the demon trem in. I guess ironically loves to take advantage of. But yeah, her story that he's a snob to, by the way, just like he's just like the classic classic elite snob. A white character in this book because he's the one that looks down on Asian stuff. How can Asian people be good at music? And kind of comes around on it, but in a very patronizing and kind of gentrifying way. As he starts accepting that there is such a thing as good pastry by an Asian patisserie, right? Yeah. I guess so. Which is really funny to me because there are so many skilled Asian violinists and classical musicians. Yeah. So going back to the donut shop. What did you think about the storyline of the trans? It was definitely like a Doctor Who episode I just love how quirky they were and I love this idea where they replicate donuts and yeah. It turns out that having the exact same donut is not like you need spontaneity and there needs to be imperfections for it to actually be appetizing..

"How are people reacting to your reporting. Well what's interesting is the contrast in responses between the the two stories. You're the first one that we did where it was sort of the civilian. Say that you know children died. Which is a story commonly comes out. There was saying well you know it's their fault for because her dad was a terrorist. Or you know this is what happens. he probably had explosives in the car and that's why they die. That's military saying but when this investigation came out. I didn't see that kind of response. I think that it just became obvious people. There was no larger explosives in the car. So the civilians that children were killed by a us missile. And also that. This guy just didn't really seem like a terrorist. I think a lot of people believed his colleagues and family and not military. Do you think that makes a difference. Because it's not like the united states is going to stop using drone strikes tomorrow right. I think it might make a difference in this case but the fact that matter is these kind of airstrikes continue because we don't know much about the people were killed. You know the people coming from poor or torn countries and their lives. Really don't matter. In the order of things you know not compared to american lives now compared in not in a system where we have such vast inequality of wealth and power between different countries is a wealthy country bombing. A poor country is the richest country in the world bombing one of the poorest countries in the world and so it amounted to investigation like that. Not just these investigations. But the efforts of activists human rights organizations legal groups you lawmakers ordinary citizens and especially you know afghans and iraqis and people themselves who are trying to tell their story. I think all that matters all that makes a difference but the end of the day. There's just a huge imbalance of power that allows these wars and his lopsided killing to continue. I think some people when they see this information they do care. I think hopefully your listeners. Right now care. But i think a lot more people probably were excited about the start of the football season. It's not pill battle but we are killing.

We did an episode recently on the cost of nine eleven where we were sure to point out that you know something like three thousand people died on september eleven two thousand one but but nearly a million if not many more have died in the subsequent war on terror. How often does stuff like what you described in the first half of the show happen in united states drone warfare. Well i think it happens far more often than we know and the reason i say that is because only a fraction of these incidents can really be investigated they typically happen in areas that are remote and difficult even dangerous to access so in most cases we just have the official version and yet we have many incidents that have been documented of civilian casualties. So it's dan reason that there are more. These strikes have been going on now for almost two decades. And it's very rare that we can put the faces and names on the innocent victims. Tell me another incident. That didn't go under the radar. One that was documented. Ooh well in two thousand fifteen which seems like a lifetime ago. Kunduz city fell the taliban. That was the first provincial capital. Nato trained afghan police and army say. They're doing what they can to thwart the attack boats sides i say taking casualties and the afghan troops backed by us. Special forces took it back fairly quickly. But in the course of this house fighting the us vessel forces on the ground. Call it an airstrike on a doctors without borders hospital an ac thirty gun shift which is a very powerful special operations aircraft white down this hospital on october third about two in the morning earlier today. The international medical aid group doctors without borders accused. Us forces of deliberately bombing that hospital in kunduz city and at least forty. Two people were killed in the attack. Many of them medical staff from dr borders an patients so it was a horrific incident in this case it was immediately apparent that terrible mistake had been made and the. Us military promised investigates soon after the strike. I went to kunduz. And i ended up writing a story about it for the new york times magazine. What did you find out well the. Us military ended up saying that it was an accident. A hospital was mistakenly struck. We would never intentionally target. They protected medical facility. The head of us forces in afghanistan general. John campbell told congress this week that afghan troops had requested the air cover because they were facing attack. They released a heavily redacted version of the report And it was wasn't until seven months later came out saying that we made a series of errors out there some technical errors with the gunships. You know navigation and targeting system through our failure to report certain things. There was errors on the ground but it was a mistake. We didn't mean to hit this hospital. This happened in part because the authority for the strike have been delegated to a lower level of command. Which is the same thing that we're told happened with his drone strike. Now in the case of news it was because the strike was carried out under self-defense. Rules when us forces are in imminent danger on the ground you know. They have the ability to call in airstrikes to protect themselves. You know that aren't subject. The normal levels of vetting and oversight. Because you know there have been many Egregious instance of civilian casualties from airstrikes. That can't stand where. Us four planes of wiped out wedding parties or convoys of civilians and you know this was seen as not only something that was awful but it was something that was turning the population against the us occupation. And so there were these rules for oversight that were implemented but these were waved in the cases of urgent self defense. And that's what happened in kunduz. How much does the us military just accept this level of civilian death when it's conducting these airstrikes. How much is it seen as well. We're saving boots on the ground. So it's worth will the military would say that no other military takes the same amount of steps to prevent civilian casualties but does any other military conducted many airstrikes in foreign countries. We do exactly no. Other military conducts dismay drawn strikes overseas. So we definitely have a responsibility to be the best at avoiding civilian casualties but the idea that civilian casualties are avoidable. I think that if you carry out these kinds of airstrikes eventually civilians are going to die and therefore in a sense their deaths are intended the bombing outside the airport in kabul was so brutal so in human it was easy to see the. Us strike some isis fighter and and prevent another attack and feel a sense of relief to to maybe even feel good about it. I mean the word general milley the the chairman of the joint chiefs staff used was righteous and now of course. This feels very different..

"How could it have posed an imminent threat especially when it was at a house away from the airport where he's actually parking for the night and so then if that's the case why what's the justification for taking an airstrike in a crowded civilian area residential area with a very high likelihood of collateral damage and has happened seven. Children were killed in that sense. I think we can be confident that the strike was was a mistake. And it's a mistake that was denied by the military and that was nine eight the official account. I think it's only because the reporting the we and other media organizations were able to do on the ground because his happening kabul that the military's count as being challenged. And that's the.

"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.

"Explained. I'm sean rama's firm last friday just as we were wrapping up our show and getting ready to start our weekends. I watched this investigative video from new york times that suggested a drone strike executed in kabul on august. Twenty ninth may have hit the wrong target. It was extremely compelling journalism. I wanted to talk to the reporters behind the video. And yesterday i did. Matthew aitken's times writer based in kabul we were about to publish our episode with matthew today. When general kenneth f mackenzie confirmed that this attack was indeed a tragic and fatal mistake thoroughly reviewed the findings of the investigation in the supporting analysis by interagency partners. I am now convinced that as many as ten civilians including up to seven children were tragically killed in that strike moreover we now assessed that it is unlikely that the vehicle and those who died were associated with isis or a director at the us forces on the show today our conversation with matthew that we had before the military admitted their mistake. What the hell happened on august. Twenty ninth part one. The strike so actually heard the explosion from the strike on the evening of august. Twenty ninth and the first report was that it was a rocket you know so one launched a rocket at the airport probably misses target land on the house. We could see video on social media a house burning in a crowded residential neighborhood but later on it came out that it actually been a drawn strike by united states.

Why is it a sparkling wine? In Italy, the word for sparkling wine is full monty. You know this is a smart I mean for Seco- Samante Champagnes? Format. It just means sparkling wine doesn't mean anything. But I think one of the problems is that. In most Americans when they think about sparkling wine, they think about.

You know the kind of Societas with an expensive nat maybe that grape wine, there's been a few scandals there won't get into. This cheap wine fighter.

The Incredible Amavi Collection Featuring Chris Cook
"Chris thank you so much for sitting down with us today to talk about this incredible collection. A LITTLE PROBLEM. Happy to do so. My first question is what is a part of this. A mob collection. What comes in the collection so our Fathers Day. Mavi collection comes with no three really unique products so we have versus. Burma the lobby touch All Hillier with Net back second is used bath bar so unlike previous years. You're doing a whole that bar with the Amami used inside and then the third part is a dot kit so toiletry bag but the thing about this bag is it's one hundred percent recycled t. from US water bottles. Wow so excited to be bringing something by mentally conscious. Tr Father's day line. Ah that sounds so amazing and having that you know recyclable that you're being back good for the environment but great for everyone who gets to how one as well so my next question would be. What was your thought behind the development of the Ahmadi Blend? Where did this come from? So the the origins of the Amami blend really were to have an opportunity for men to take part in Central L. experiences. Well I think sometimes we feel like it's a very much a woman oriented you know experience but men are also welcome in more than welcome to be included in using essential oils on from many different reasons. And so what we wanted to do was really create a blend that could really tie into men's usage so it has a lot of really cool earthy woody aromas part of it that really created this wonderful experience for the men in your life absolutely and it is such a beautiful combination of those earthy. Woody smells. It's just warm and wonderful. I love it personally. Yeah so why? Was it important for To bring this collection. That is more geared toward men like I was saying having everybody included in essential oils is amazing part of your personal life and you know even your business is to be able to target. Everybody needs natural health in their life and this one specifically is helping men feel more grounded in their lives. All of these would blend would essential oils. That bring this calm to your your personal lifestyle and having an opportunity to celebrate them in in our life is also a huge part of what we do here dough tear. We want everybody to feel loved and included in. This is a great way for us to do that within essential oil So you've mentioned those incredible oils that are inside a couple times.

Do feel confident. Whenever you had on your body or your enhancing for that aromatic affect it really does create this whole change in your your attitude in person Easing these unique blend. And I love that. You brought up those two oils. That people don't really get a see very often for anyone that was able to get the when it was the product of the month earlier this month. It is such an incredible smell and have it as part of this blend. I'm sure is just adding you know sprinkled on top of the cake though one hundred percent it's such a unique smelling essential oil that I love that we get to feature it again this year so I think the bath bar is probably self explanatory for people have had to use that. But how would you recommend using this touch oil? The mob detached so touch royal is something that I would recommend looking up different like touch points on the body. Obviously but for men. I would really recommend you on your wrist. Ten of right there because it it really grounding place on the body can be a really grounding in fortifying aroma in supporting on the part of your body.

"And Ahmadi Cornish a new book looks at the many untruths on which the trump administration has been built it's called American oligarchs the questioners the trumps and the marriage of money and power author injure Bernstein spoke with our co host Elsa Chang Andrea Bernstein looks of the generations of the questioner and trump families how they built their real estate businesses in New Jersey and New York the fabrications it took to stay on top and hello all of that affects the U. S. presidency Bernstein roots Jared Kushner's family story and how his grandmother ray questioner and members of her family survived the Holocaust the family business was what kept them alive during the early part of the war Jared Kushner's grandmother was saved because the **** came in they said is anybody here for a year they needed family is to make hats and coats for the German army and their press towards Moscow so the Kushner's were spared they lived in a ghetto during the war they were essentially in slave they had very little to eat they had to work for the **** war machine and over the course of World War two successive groups of Jews were taken and killed by the **** and by the summer of nineteen forty three they realized that it was only a matter of time before they were killed too so they developed a plan to escape to the forest because they knew that there was a band of Jewish partisans in the forest right and that if they could get to the forest they could survive ray Kushner met Jared Kushner's grandfather Joseph before the war but the ended up meeting again when they were fleeing Poland the two married in Budapest and eventually made their way together to the United States the characters arrive in America with two dollars in their pocket and Jared Kushner's grandfather was a carpenter and he immediately went to work and this was a time in America where the federal government was helping home builders in a variety of ways so there were new loans new mortgage structures for the federal government to help people buy homes there was the federal highway act which helps people get to all those new homes and they were of course all these returning G. eyes that needed those home so it was a great time to be in real estate and for the good for family we no from ray's testimony and from the records that were left about Joe and their children Charlie and Mary both of whom had real estate businesses that for them being successful builders was a way of saying to the **** we have one though with Charlie Christian that's Jarrett's father and he ended up using the real estate business as a way to gain political access right which is one of the things that got him into trouble with the law and Johnson to prison right what happened was is the Kushner family had to break rules to get to the United States they had to cross international borders illegally they had to fudge family relationships in order to immigrate and breaking rules and not going by what the authorities wanted them to do became a family point of pride it became a way to survive it became a way to survive but what happened with Charlie's businesses that he began to break the law he began to make donations that he wasn't allowed to make and he began paying for things out of his family business that were ultimately turned out to be tax evasion Charlie Kushner is eventually called to account for his violations of tax and campaign finance law and plead guilty and goes to prison for a year and his son Jared famously sticks with him all the way through all the way through now when you look at the way that the Kushner family ran it's real estate business before Charlie crushers prison sentence how would you compare the way that family operated and the way the troops operated in their own real estate business well in New York and New Jersey real estate is a famously shady business and people who own real estate and who develop real estate understand that they need political favor that that is part of the capital that they're building up both the Kushner family and the trump family were part of the system but they both pushed it far beyond the limits Charlie Kushner was convicted and sent to jail for the way he ran his real estate business Fred trump Donald trump's father was questioned by US Senate investigators he was investigated by a New York state commission investigation Donald Trump was investigated several times by law enforcement in New York for his deals but they never faced any consequences and each time they didn't face consequences they continued to press the limits they continued to cross lines they continued to manipulate money and people in a way that would further their family business interests I mean ultimately you are interested in the parallels in the intersections between these two family stories the trumps in the questioners because they're both in the executive branch now and the case that you make throughout your book is that with the trumps they don't see much difference between the national interest and the family's interests is that why you're describing what we're seeing now as an oligarchy that's right there are two things you need for an oligarchy you need to be able to control government officials and you need to be able to control law enforcement and in New York private real estate developers have figured out how to do that particularly well and the trump family even more so than most families Donald Trump when he became a real estate developer worked particularly aggressive to develop his government ties when he was running for president he talked about this openly he said I contribute to people and when I call them they give to me he understood a transactional relationship with government the government was there to help along private businesses and to help his family's business interests when you have will the people controlling government over democratic processes you are approaching an oligarchy and that is where we are now in America I mean when I'm reading your book I'm thinking how hopeful this Andrea feel about the future of democracy and you do at the very and make a reference back to ray Kushner remember she start Christmas grandmother who survived the Holocaust and you talk about how she wanted to retell the story of the Holocaust because she she believer member in the past in short against repeating the evils of the past why did that resonate for you in writing this book about these two families I thought a lot about offering hope and I didn't want to say I feel falsely hopeful but I do think that I would not do what I do if I didn't have some fundamental sense of hope that telling the story would create a record that would in some ways be prophylactic against further bad consequences and that's what you're Kushner's grandmother ray said also so she said she was telling the story because she wanted people to watch who came up on top of their government and she had seen the horrible consequences and I thought a lot about that message that she had said you need to document what's happening you need to tell the story and I became truly believe that telling the story is an active help thank you so much for your reporting Andrea thank you all so it's great to talk to you Andrea Bernstein's new book is called American oligarchs the.

minutes on is unfortunately I remember we are big mantra here is the markets we talk about but all those that affect the markets including central banks and these miseries running the country that do not care about us they only care about the re re election and their own party how do we know this because when something happens a political party takes one side the other he takes the other side and then when something happens again done by the other side the other side takes the opposite you get my point sick of all of them so last night this is all going on and the usual suspects the site to bring on well the Obama people to talk about trump taken this guy out and they spent the whole night the whole day today ripping president trump rip it up refer them for taking out a bad guy I think to myself man I I got the TV on and I watched like four in the morning why are all these people so depressed that arguably the number one terrorist on ours was taken out why are they so depressed not even depressed and why are they complaining what is it come down to those same Obama hi fifty years did over five hundred drone attack killing tons of bad guys thank but the media never reported it but now it's bad that we take out some body and we're reason look how bad we are that we're retaliating they were amazed at the kept going on all day today whole grain and I'm thinking to myself here we go again they don't give a crap about what trump did they give a crap that trump did an old they I'm listening this is going to cause World War three all this is going to be a problem because they're now going to do more bad things they do when bad things for the last god knows how many months they've attacked ships they attacked our embassy they've killed Americans they threaten the country day in and day out and they're out there at the front these scumbags in Washington it won only more defending you run these people in our Hollywood defending the rock I don't even know who this this woman is she's on the movie of the show forum rules some McGowan completely defending his room murderous scum bag by the way including room and more rate been Maury and what is to come down to unfortunately can politics Obama did it for eight years and not a peep member what I've told you about Obama he deported three million illegal immigrants Obama what is the porting less people than Obama but shrub is the immigrant and bomb it isn't there you have all I know was the Middle East has been a certain amount of powder keg for ever what they don't tell you is Egypt Saudi Arabia and I know the guys band there Israel Jordan other countries back office friends with us hate you Ron happy about this not being reported you know it's being reported what do you want me to do next it doesn't matter they've been doing it already they've been doing it all ready they're bad they're more features more ordered us thousand of their own citizens for pro testing the government there the modem Moslems their own people anyway you know the usual suspects they're all the press today amazing to watch and that's all I can say I remember though trump's there I am no trump star I'm waiting for one person on a certain side to say wait a minute hold on don't jump the gun here nope haven't seen one the Republican rand Paul was ripped from for doing this so anyway that's the deal all I ever go out I'll be on outcome but I at the thought process behind it Hey nothing's gonna come of it think nothing of a come of it very rarely do a couple little things here and there and we'll kick their **** again that's all that'll be off the pages in a week because they have to go back to impeachment the media member the media's one goal how do we get this guy so what ever is what they believe to be the best way to deal with they're going to do in a pinch what's going to come back so I think unless they decide to hold the articles anyway that was last night of course futures overnight went down but I have to tell you I'm thinking to myself the market to stretch the extended over bought bullishness is off the charts got to pull back some time what's going to be the catalyst when we got the catalyst and I wouldn't think it much much more do I think there's going to be more yeah I I think so why we need we need to backs are great the little bearishness is great couple scared they is a great you just can't keep doing what we've been doing recently and what ends up happening is extremes in bullishness when they hit with these wild extremes that means everybody's basically bought an and that's when you get pull backs and it's not precise it's not you know pinpoint when everybody's bullish that market has to drop today no sometimes it takes time well again and sometimes you need a catalyst will you got the catalyst that I futures were down overnight consort a crummy day all day you have a couple times the market try to rally but I got news for you was still up for up for the

"S. it's All Things Considered from NPR news I'm ari Shapiro and Ahmadi Cornish the Supreme Court is about to Wade into the battle over president trump's tax returns late today the court said it will review lower court decisions that have up held congressional and grand jury subpoenas for financial records from president trump's long time personal accountants and the banks he did business with the decision sets the stage for constitutional battle over the limits of presidential power joining us in studio is NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg heather nida hi there I think the court seems to do things basically on a Friday night right that's what they've been doing lately so what exactly did the court do this evening well these cases all involve president trump's personal finances not anything he's done as president and in each case trump lost in the lower courts and his private attorneys appealed to the Supreme Court and I should note that even though the house Judiciary Committee voted to approve two articles of impeachment today against drop none of these cases involves the conduct at the heart of the impeachment inquiry what is through what these cases would involve well first there's a subpoena for trump's long time accountants issued by a grand jury in New York this investigating alleged hush money payments to porn stars stormy Daniels and other women during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign the second big case involves a subpoena from the house oversight committee that was looking into whether there's a need to enact legislation compelling all presidents in the future to make public their tax returns and in addition the committee is seeking to close what they consider other FX loopholes in the law involving presidential business activities trump of course is the only president in the modern era to it kept his taxes secret the third case involves two banks that did extensive business with trump including providing him loans during his repeated bankruptcies Deutsche Bank and Capital One the subpoenas to these banks came from the house financial services committee and the intelligence committee they were looking into possible connections to Russian money laundering and in all three of these cases the subpoenas were upheld by the lower courts how soon will the court here these cases well they said an hour of argument in March and I would expect a decision probably in June just in time for the presidential campaign to be moving into high gear now five of the nine justices on the court at this point are Republican appointees all are quite conservative what does this tell us about the potential of the outcome here I'm not sure tells us much some conservative Supreme Court advocates that I've talked to think these cases really are low hanging fruit so to speak in a way for the court to show that it's not just in the pockets of a Republican in the pocket of a Republican president on the other hand some of the justices have strong feelings about protecting the president any president from what they view as constant harassment Brett Kavanaugh among them and lastly of course remember that the Supreme Court ruled unanimously in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case involving president Clinton that the president just like any other citizen does not have immunity from civil lawsuits that's in PR is legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg thank you much thank you a Nobel Peace Prize winner spoke in court this week and defended a military accused of genocide Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi said her country soldiers were at times brutal but she denied that they had trying to wipe out there hanga muscle minority surely under the circumstances genocidal intent cannot be the only hypothesis Soutine never mentioned the row him go by name nor did she directly addressed the charges of mass rape murder and burning of whole villages that soldiers hands yes men will is or hang activist and she was in that court room at the international court of justice in the Hague it was quite surreal the fact that we heard her basically defended all of the persecutions of the right hang at by the Myanmar military in the mean or as an institution was just very hard to hear and hard to watch tell me about why it was hard because I had three genocide survivor's sitting beside me you know I could understand every word that she said but these three people needed help with the translation and what not so you are translating her words for them I decided not to because it would be a much harder for them to stop my cat because it was it's so fresh in their minds I cannot imagine if these people were to understand what she was saying that it would it would do any good for them so I just kept quiet and then explain to them a bit later what happened the survivors who were with you in a court room are they living in the refugee camps in Bangladesh yes they are currently in the camps and what was their experience of the trial like even if you did try to shelter them from some of the most upsetting testimony there were actually really really grateful grateful for what for the fact that this case even come to a trial at the international court of justice that someone would acknowledge their pain someone would acknowledge them as human that we would actually force on sin su chi and her government to actually listen to all of the atrocities fed her military had committed against our people she basically we were forced to listen to the name rang out over and over and over what she herself deny it not our existence completely this woman was recently so revered by the global community tell me about uncensored she's role in your own family and how she's figured in your understanding my dad went and saw her while she was campaigning before her house arrest you know he would carry her photos around in his wallet wow he carries a soda in his wallet I didn't even earn that that place hi I'm not so the hard part of and how did your father respond to this this transformation at first he was very taken aback by it and he was sort of giving her a little bit more excuses but he also understands that with power comes to different ways people change and corruption so our disappointment and as a community or you know the disappointment of my father or myself that ship has sailed we know you know who she is and out we are not surprised by what she said I'm especially when her counsels stood up and basically ask you know there is not enough body counts there's not enough people who died in comparison to other genocide that have been proven I just think two we only to die in order for that to be proven if you could have said something to on sun suci after hearing her testimony what would you have said to her I would have said I it's very disappointing that some you chose to stand with the military but you are going to go down in the history with this name attached to you that you have defended it genocide perpetrators and that you're on their site so think carefully of what you want to do next you have the ability as a state counselor to do much much more good but if you still insist to stand beside a genocide perpetrators you are going to be remembered for ever in history as a disgrace and I don't think that you want to be that kind of person yes ma'am I thank you for speaking with us no problem thank you for having me she's president of.

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.
