Dow Jones Industrial Average, NASDAQ and
S&P 500 Composite for Week 1/5-1/12
The Michigan Daily - Thursday, January 13, 2000 - 7A
LONDON (AP) - Pressure mounted
on Britain's top law enforcement official
yesterday to release medical records that
may spell freedom for ailing former
Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet,
detained for 15 months on charges of
human rights abuses.
The human rights group Amnesty
International demanded that Home
Secretary Jack Straw release the
cords, at least to Spain - as well as
oFrance, Switzerland and Belgium,
which also requested Pinochet's extra-
dition claiming their citizens suffered
abuses during his 1973-90 dictatorship.
"Many victims of Pinochet's crimes
a id the families of those who have
bfen murdered will feel betrayed if
Pnochet is released on the basis of
iedical evidence which is not going to
be disclosed," said Geoffrey Bindman,
O Amnesty attorney.
Straw announced Tuesday that an
independent medical exam on Jan. 5 by
four physicians was "unequivocal and
unanimous" in finding the 84-year-old
general too ill to stand trial, opening the
door for him to return to Chile within
The panel's findings were not dis-
closed, although Straw told the House of
Conmons that criteria considered
included whether Pinochet would be able
@ follow the proceedings, assist in his
own defense and give coherent testirno-
ny.Pinochet suffered two minor strokes
in September. He also has diabetes and
arthritis and wears a pacemaker.
Straw gave the parties involved
seven days to submit arguments before
he issues a final ruling on extradition to
Spain, but gave no timetable for his
He noted that Pinochet had been
sked to allow Spain and the other
countries involved to read copies of the
medical report, but that the general
"declined to do so"
NASDAQ Close Change
grand jury probe<
Highlights from the week: Although last Thursday saw the second largest point loss in the NASDAQ
composite's history, all three market indexes have rebounded substantionally from last week's very disap-
pointing trading sessions. Leading the charge was the announcement Monday of the merger between
America Online and Time Warner for $160 billion. In monetary terms, this new Internet/media conglom-
erate is the largest merger ever. This news added to investor's speculation of how much influence the inter-
net will have in the fiuture as Time Warner closed up 25 5/16 and America Online decreased 2 at the end
of trading Monday. This will most likely influence the remaining media companies to start looking to pair
up with other Internet access companies to try to keep up with this new giant.
What is the Dow Jones Industrial Average? The DJIA represents 30 stocks traded on the New York Stock
Exchange (NYSE) and NASDAQ are all major factors in their respective industries. These stocks are
widely held by individuals and institutional investors. Many financial advisers think of it as a good indi-
cator in telling whether the NYSE is doing well or poorly.
What is the NASDAQ Composite? The NASDAQ is the fastest growing stock market in the U.S. due to
it being a screen-based stock market, compared to a trading floor market like the NYSE. It also has almost
all of the technological stocks available for trading, which has proved to be a very volatile industry in the
last few years.
What is the S&P 500? The S&P 500 is a marketvalue weighted index composed of 400 industrial
stocks, 20 transportation, 40 financial, and 40 utility. It is a far broader measure than the DJIA
because it takes into account 500 different stocks traded on the two main exchanges (NYSE and
NASDAQ-AMEX) compared to the DJIA's 30 all traded on the NYSE and NASDAQ.

LINCOLN, Neb. (U-WIRE) -
Microsoft and NCAA men's basket-
ball may have more in common than
most people might think. Both are
giants of their domains - Microsoft
of the computing industry and men's
college basketball of intercollegiate
But the two are linked in a more sin-
ister way as well: both have recently
undergone probes by a federal grand
But unlike the Microsoft investiga-
tion, which centered on anti-trust laws,
a grand jury in Kansas City, Mo., is
hearing testimony on the corrupt under-
world of summer recruiting that
involves shoe companies and advisors
who act more like agents than coaches.
Only a few players have been affect-
ed by illicit actions during the summer,
but two of the three players who have
lost eligibility over the scandal so far
come from the Big 12 Conference.
Missouri became the first conference
school to be bitten by the inquiry, as
first-year student Kareem Rush was
suspended in conjunction with an
investigation of his brother JaRon
Rush, a sophomore at UCLA. Jaron
was suspended on Dec. 9 for allegedly
Then just last week Oklahoma State's
Andre Williams was the second Big 12
player to be implicated in a similar
scandal as he was ruled ineligible by
the NCAA for the rest of the season for
receiving a high school scholarship.
The NCAA said he also would have to
repay $20,000 to his Maine prep
OSU has filed an appeal on his
behalf and Coach Eddie Sutton said
there are conflicts with the summer
recruiting process. "I think it's a
problem; any college coach will tell
you that," Sutton said. "There are a
lot of great people that work with=
players over the summer, but there
are others that you wouldn't want
working with your players over the:
The NCAA intends to discuss they
issue of the summer recruiting this:
week at its annual meeting in San.
Diego. While most Big 12 Conference
coaches don't expect any changes to
result from the meeting, they have
mixed views on how summer recruiting
should be handled.
Kansas Coach Roy Williams thinks
all parties in the issue should be
brought together to discuss the issue.,
"There is not an easy answer," he.
said. "The first thing we need to do is
to get everyone involved together -
the coaches, the NCAA officials, the
high school federation and the shoe
companies. If we could get everyone
together I think we could resolve some
Kansas State Coach Tom Asbury said
summer recruiting isn't the culprit, but
rather the early signing period is.
"I've got a quick fix," he said.
"Eliminate the fall signing period. I've
said that for two or three years. That
way the summer would be an evalua-
tion period instead of a hands-on
The summer recruiting season has
turned into a bonanza for coaches and
players since the NCAA instituted the
fall signing period more than a
decade ago to control recruiting
Sutton said the recruiting period
allowed mid-major schools that don't
have large recruiting budgets to see,
players they ordinarily couldn't see}
Several coaches thought the summer
recruiting days should be limited, but
Oklahoma Coach Kelvin Sampson said
the summer recruiting period needed to
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court gave police
broad authority to stop and question people who run at the sight
of an officer yesterday.
The five to four ruling came short of giving police a blan-
ket right to stop anyone who runs after seeing the police. But
it said such flight may indicate a crime is being committed
and therefore can help justify a police stop.
The decision was a boost for police but worried some civil
"Nervous, evasive behavior is a pertinent factor in deter-
mining reasonable suspicion" to justify a stop, Chief
Justice William Rehnquist wrote for the court. "Headlong
flight - wherever it occurs - is the consummate act of
"Allowing officers confronted with such flight to stop the
fugitive and investigate further is quite consistent with the indi-
vidual's right to go about his business or to stay put and remain
silent in the face of police questioning," he said.
The court said police had enough reason to stop a Chicago
man who ran after spotting officers in an area known for nar-
The National Association of Police Organizations praised
the ruling. Its executive director, Robert Scully, said the deci-
sion will allow police to investigate "highly suspicious con-
But Tracey Maclin, a lawyer for the American Civil
Liberties Union, said the decision "shows how out of
touch the majority of the court is with what happens on
the streets of America with respect to police-citizen
