Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Iowa held serve, but a number of teams, including Oklahoma, made major moves.At this point, while there is still a great deal of football to be played, a few things are obvious. There are seven teams that are in complete control of their own destiny. What does that really mean? If these seven teams win out, they’re locks for the College Football Playoff – no question. These squads are either undefeated or are involved in virtual play-in games that will knock out other contenders.The two teams with the best playoff odds that don’t control their own destiny? That’d be Oklahoma, which, given its loss to Texas, would need a little help to get in with an 11-1 record, and Notre Dame, which won’t have the luxury of claiming a conference championship, should it also finish with an 11-1 mark. Oddly enough, there are many who believe that the last playoff spot could come down to the Sooners and the Irish.Here are the seven teams that control their own destiny.7 Teams: Clemson >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8last_img read more

New Delhi A Delhi court has issued a production w

By

first_imgNew Delhi: A Delhi court has issued a production warrant against a close aide of corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar in a money-laundering case related to negotiations allegedly favouring foreign private airlines and causing loss to state-owned Air India.Special Judge Anuradha Shukla Bhardwaj has directed the Tihar jail authorities to produce Yasmin Kapoor, a close aide of Talwar, before the court on October 3. Kapoor is currently in judicial custody in another case lodged by the CBI. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe court, which had last month cancelled the anticipatory bail granted to Kapoor earlier in the money-laundering case, passed the order on an application moved by ED’s special public prosecutor Nitesh Rana. Rana submitted that Kapoor was misusing the bail granted by the court. Kapoor was granted anticipatory bail by the court on March 22, while Talwar is in judicial custody. There were reasons to believe that the tainted money, received from the foreign airlines, was used for the acquisition of Kapoor’s residential property in New Delhi, ED’s lawyer A R Aditya said. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka GandhiThe Enforcement Directorate (ED) claimed that several companies, in which Kapoor was a shareholder along with Talwar, received the proceeds of the crime, adding that the agency’s probe in this regard was ongoing. Kapoor had sought anticipatory bail, claiming that the ED had threatened her to take names and also to convince Talwar to give names of government officials or political functionaries, failing which she would be arrested. Talwar was deported from the UAE in connection with the money-laundering case. The ED had earlier said it needed to interrogate Talwar to get the names of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, National Aviation Company of India Ltd and Air India officials, who had favoured the foreign airlines, including Qatar Airways, Emirates and Air Arabia. The agency had claimed that entities directly or indirectly controlled by the accused received exorbitant amounts from Qatar Airways, Emirates and Air Arabia and submitted a chart of a total of USD 60.54 million allegedly received by firms directly or indirectly owned by Talwar between April 23, 2008 and February 6, 2009. Talwar’s alleged role in some aviation deals during the previous Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime at the Centre is under the scanner as well. Talwar has been booked by the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in criminal cases of corruption, while the Income-Tax department has charged him with tax evasion. Kapoor is currently in custody in a case of alleged violation of foreign exchange rules by his NGO, Advantage India. The case relates to alleged misappropriation of Rs 90 crore received by Advantage India through foreign funding.last_img read more

Oppn unites against Chandrakant Patil Congress NCP to back MNS

By

first_imgPune: NCP and Congress on Friday announced support for the MNS candidate in Kothrud constituency in Pune city against state BJP president Chandrakant Patil for the October 21 Maharashtra Assembly elections. Patil, who hails from Kolhapur, was fielded from Kothrud, a stronghold of saffron parties, by sidelining sitting BJP MLA Medha Kulkarni. Posters had come up in Kothrud opposing the “outsider” candidate after the BJP made the surprise announcement. Nationalist Congress Party spokesperson Ankush Kakade said on Friday that the NCP and Congress decided to support MNS candidate Kishor Shinde to avoid division of votes against Patil. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad”The Kothrud seat has been traditionally contested by the NCP. During the seat-sharing talks we had offered to give it to our ally Swabhimani Shetkari Paksha,” Kakade said. “In the meantime, Patil was fielded from here, so we (the NCP and Congress) thought why divide the strength of NCP, Congress and MNS by fielding another candidate,” he said. Shinde had contested from Kothrud on MNS ticket in 2009 and 2014, losing both times. However, in 2009, though he lost to Shiv Sena’s Chandrakant Mokate, he had put up a tough fight, Kakade said. “The decision to support the MNS in Kothrud was taken at the local level by the NCP and Congress,” he added. The two parties have not formed alliance with the Raj Thackeray-led party at the state level. Abhay Chhajed, a senior Congress leader, said in view of the sentiment against Patil, it was important to give the voters a strong alternative.last_img read more

Cabinet approves new process of strategic disinvestment

By

first_imgNew Delhi: The Cabinet has approved a new process of strategic disinvestment with a view to expediting privatisation of select PSUs, officials said on Friday. The Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at its meeting on Thursday evening approved the new policy under which the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM) under the Ministry of Finance has been made the nodal department for the strategic stake sale. This was done with a view to streamlining and speeding up the process, reducing the role of administrative ministries which often used to place hurdles in the path of major stake sales, officials said. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraWhile presently PSUs for strategic sale are identified by NITI Aayog, the tweak in policy has now brought DIPAM into the picture. DIPAM and NITI Aayog will now jointly identify PSUs for strategic disinvestment, they said. Also, DIPAM secretary would now co-chair the inter-minister group on disinvestment, along with the secretary of administrative ministries concerned. The change comes within a week of a group of secretaries agreeing for sale of government’s entire 53.29 per cent stake in Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd and its 63.75 per cent stake in Shipping Corporation of India (SCI), 30 per cent in Concor, 100 per cent NEEPCO and 75 per cent in THDC. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysOfficials said strategic sale may involve two-stage bidding beginning with an expression of interest (EoI) or a preliminary intent showing bid, and a final financial bid. Pre-bid meetings with likely bidders and roadshows to attract potential investors will form part of the process to provide clarity on every aspect of the stake sale. Also, data centre will be set up for bidders to look for information on the PSUs up for sale, they added. Officials said the idea is to complete the stake sale within a timeframe, say 4-5 months. The government has set a target of mobalising Rs 1.05 lakh crore from disinvestment proceeds and achieving this has become more critical after it doled out Rs 1.45 lakh crore stimulus by way of a cut in corporate tax. Disinvestment proceeds will be critical for the government to stick to its target of keeping fiscal deficit at 3.3 per cent of the GDP in the current fiscal year ending March 31, 2020.last_img read more
