first_imgThe Board of Control for Cricket in India is likely to lose crores of rupees if the International Cricket Council’s new revenue-sharing model is implemented.According to a PIL filed in the Madras High Court by former CBI director RK Raghavan and others, the BCCI will be receiving at least Rs 1,000 crore less due to Shashank Manohar’s “unilateral offer” for a six per cent cut in the revenue-sharing model. BCCI is entitled to 21 per cent of gross revenue of ICC for the cycle broadcast 2015-23.They said they have filed the petition based on newspaper reports and details furnished by Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), a member of BCCI.When the matter came up before a bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice S Vaidyanathan, the Judges questioned whether the petition could be entertained as a PIL since it was a private agreement between two parties.The bench then asked the counsel for the petitioners whether he would like to withdraw the petition or want the court to pass orders.After the counsel said he would get instruction from his client, the bench posted the mater to April 20.According to the former CBI director, the broadcast revenue to ICC was estimated to be in the range between $900-925 million for the Rights Cycle 2007-15 and sponsorship revenue was estimated between $600-650 Million for the same period.He further said that the Media Rights Income for 2015-23 has fetched $1.9 billion and that the broadcast rights for the cycle has more than doubled from the previous cycle.advertisementHe submitted that the sum total revenue for the cycle 2015-23 will exceed $2.5 billion at current conversion rate comes to more than Rs 16,750 crores.The petitioner submitted that the sum due to BCCI is 20.3 per cent for its participation in the ICC events for the cycle and it worked out to Rs 3,400 crores.It is the Indian market and sponsorship which contributes more than 80 per cent of the revenue generated by world cricket, the PIL said adding it was in this background all the members of ICC, the test cricket playing nations agreed in February 2014 to pay a per centage of ICC revenue to BCCI.The petitioner claimed that present BCCI chief Manohar, who took over as Chairman of ICC with effect from November 9, 2015, obtained a general body approval to ‘negotiate downward revision’ of BCCI’s revenue from the world body.TNCA first wrote to BCCI complaining that the mandate given by its chief would result in a loss of more than Rs 3,000 crore to the board till 2031, the PIL claimed.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

first_imgCouncilsPatna, Jul 17 (PTI) A day after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar pitched for abolishing the Governors post, MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav today demanded that the Rajya Sabha and the Legislative Councils be removed as these are a “total waste of hard-earned public money”.”Both the Rajya Sabha and the Legislative Councils in the states should be abolished as these are arrangements made by British regime and are no longer required,” he said here.”I will raise this issue in the Monsoon session of Parliament. I will also file a PIL in the Supreme Court for abolishing the arrangements of the Rajya Sabha and the Councils,” said the MP from Madhepura.Alleging that rich people try to be in the Rajya Sabha and the Legislative Councils merely on basis of money power, Yadav said, “The Upper Houses both at the Centre and in the states are no longer required as it is a complete waste of hard-earned public money.”Rather, the money should be spent on education and health,” he said.The Bihar Chief Minister had made the demand for abolishing the Governors post at the Inter-State Council meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi stating that the existing federal democratic structure does not warrant its continuance.Referring to Kumars demand, Yadav said the government should first scrap the system of Rajya Sabha and Legislative Councils before abolishing the post of Governor.Both the Central and state governments should explain as to why they have continued with the arrangement that was made by Britishers, Yadav said.

first_imgPopular Punjabi singers Diljit Dosanjh and Kamal Grewal may find themselves in trouble for ‘glorifying dog fights’ in their latest album videos and songs.Animal rights activists have set up a page on Facebook called ‘Exposing Animal Fights in India’, whereby they have uploaded more than 100 secretly-captured videos of the ‘canine blood sport.’This sport is hugely popular in parts of Punjab and Haryana such as Bhatinda, Ludhiana, Hisar, Fatehabad, Gurgaon and held clandestinely in several farmhouses in Delhi. Breeds such as pittbulls, bull dogs, Indian mastiffs and other pedigree dogs are especially bred and trained to be ferocious to the point of being lethal and kill other dogs in wrestling-kind of rings.Alongside, the dog lovers have also uploaded a song each of Diljit Dosanjh called ‘Pitbull’ and Kamal Grewal’s ‘Sarkari Ban’ where both seem to be promoting the illegal activity.While Dosanjh, who is himself seen handling pitbulls in the video, says, “Rakhe fight nu vi Pitbull chaar ni” (Have kept four pitbulls for fighting), Grewal in his song called ‘Sarkari Ban’ says, “Petbull’an da chalaya yaaran ne hai daur ni” (Friends have begun the trend of pitbull fighting).” He is also seen making two unruly dogs fight with mouth guards on.Grewal also seems to praise sports like bull racing and pigeon fights (kabutarbaazi), which also comes under the Gambling Act other than Prevention of Animal Cruelty Act and IPC Section 429 for killing and maiming animals.COMPLAINTS FILEDAbhinav Srihan of NGO Fauna Police says, “We strongly condemn this. It is wrong to project dog fights as something macho, valiant or courageous. Punjab has historically been known for healthy human sports like kushti and kabaddi. The Sikh Regiment in Indian Army has won maximum awards for their true heroism, and our Gurus have also taught compassion for all.”advertisement”It is sad that things have come to a point where we make dogs fight and set this as an example for the youth,” he added.Few dog lovers have already forwarded complaints to the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) regarding singers Dosanjh, Grewal and some more small-time singers also. The complainants say that some singers are not just promoting animal cruelty, but drugs consumption and use of illegal firearms through their explicit videos, as well.The AWBI has taken cognizance of these complaints and written letters to Punjab Police for action. Strangely, singer Kamal Grewal responded to one of these FB posts saying, “How can a song, which is itself named ‘Sarkari Ban’ be banned by the authorities.” Diljit Dosanjh, on the other hand, did not respond to the criticism on FB despite being tagged.Earlier, Union minister for women and child welfare Maneka Gandhi had said that she was aware of this cruel sport. “Dogs are starved for days. Their tails and ears are cut off. They are made violent for such fights, and when one dog loses, it is shot dead by the owner. It is a very sad state of affairs,” she had told the media.”Even 10-day old puppies gouge out eyes and maul each other to death. Bigger dogs are made to fight cows and bulls and rip their flesh away,” another activist said.ALSO READ | Jallikattu is not cruelty but a breeding process, say its proponentsALSO WATCH | Jallikattu ban: Who said what on the bull-taming sportlast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: “So what are you watching on Netflix?” This has become a conversation starter for bingers across the world, including in India, which says a lot about the growing influence of the streaming giant globally. Apart from re-writing the rulebook for a successful business model, the streaming service is constantly revamping its content library, creating a ripple effect in the market. When Netflix came into existence in 1997, thanks to Reed Hastings and software executive Marc Randolph, the intention was to offer online movie rentals. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal Today, it has spread its network in over 190 countries through over 150 million paid memberships. The Netflix strategy is to revisit immensely popular shows as they did with “Stranger Things”, “Queer Eye”, “Sacred Games”, “Narcos”, “The Crown”, “Glow”, “Mindhunters”, and “13 Reasons Why”. Another strategy that is currently influencing most other home entertainment platforms is Netflix’s initiative to bring A-list star power like Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Reynolds into the original content that streams right into your homes. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost They have successfully replicated the strategy in India, too. Netflix is now the playing field for many big-ticket Bollywood stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Anushka Sharma and Emraan Hashmi. While Saif and Nawazuddin return in “Sacred Games 2”, SRK produces the spy thriller series “Bard Of Blood” starring Emraan Hashmi, and Anushka Sharma produces the political drama “Mai”. Netflix knows that in star-crazy India, even if the names of SRK and Anushka are attached as producers, it could trigger off a revenue haul worth a few crores more. “The thing about Netflix is that we don’t believe in being judgmental to the taste of any of our subscribers,” Srishti Behl Arya, director, International Originals, at Netflix India, told IANS. “We want to make sure that whatever is their taste, viewers will find it at Netflix. That is what we have been doing across the globe, with series and films. We hope to bring that narrative to the local Indian market as well. Just like we are talk of global content here, they should be talking about Indian content,” she added. This year, the streaming service is expected to spend $15 billion on content, and India is big on their radar. “We are seeing a nice, steady increase in engagement with Indian viewers that we think we can build on,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said on a call with analysts, adding: “Growth in India is a marathon. We’re in it for the long haul.” Essentially, Netflix is changing viewing habits in India, like the rest of the world, by providing unlimited original entertainment for every taste and viewership profile. Upcoming content as diverse as “Bard of Blood”, “Baahubali: The Rise Of Sivagami”, “Bulbul”, “Midnight’s Children”, “Bombay Begums”, “Betaal”, “Messy”, “Masaba Masaba”, “Ghost Stories”, “Class of ’83” and “Mrs. Serial Killer” testify that fact. They have even unveiled a mobile subscription plan for India at a mere Rs 199 per month. “We try to tell the best stories we can. There are so many streaming services, but if you think about how many networks there are on cable in India, there are way more than 34. I think there’s a lot of room to do different kinds of stories,” said Hastings. Let’s take a note that there is a growing market for other over-the-top or OTT platforms, too, like Amazon Prime, Hotstar, MX Player, Voot, Zee5, ALTBalaji or Sony Liv in India. Netflix isn’t bothered about competition. “It’s going to be a very exciting and competitive market. I am very pleased with our performance there,” Hastings said at an event in March. The growing popularity of Netflix, in India particularly, has opened up options for content creators, too. Kirti Kulhari, who will be seen in “Bard of Blood”, feels they have widened the reach of content, which is a “big revolution”. “Netflix is the first one to start doing this. The diversity (and) the complexity of the subjects that they deal with (are impressive). They are encouraging different countries to produce content locally with a very global universal appeal. They have created healthy competition. Everyone has upped the game,” Kirti told IANS. “Delhi Crime” star Rasika Duggal feels “the digital space is about pushing the boundaries and breaking formula and with each of their shows, and Netflix has stayed true to that”. “Beecham House” actress Shriya Pilgaonkar added: “From an actor’s perspective, as well as from a viewer’s, Netflix has been at the forefront of showcasing diverse content across genres, which is encouraging for a lot of storytellers out there, and is giving a much-needed boost to original content.” It is clear that Netflix will continue breaking the norms, decoding the formula of success, eschewing the traditional ratings system and creating binge-worthy entertainment. So, Netflix and chill.last_img read more

The Atlanta Falcons had the NFL’s most explosive offense this season, racking up yards and points with efficiency and balance. As a result, the Falcons are the NFC’s No. 2 seed in the playoffs, quarterback Matt Ryan is a leading MVP candidate and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is reportedly interviewing for four different head-coach openings.The Falcons led the NFL in many offensive metrics this season, finishing No. 1 in points per game (33.8), yards per play (6.7), per-drive scoring rate (52.6 percent) and Football Outsiders’ offensive DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average).But Ryan, Shanahan, star wideout Julio Jones and the Falcons’ dynamic tailback duo of Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman were all in Atlanta last season, and the Falcons finished below or around the league average in all of those categories.So what has transformed an underperforming offense into the most effective unit in the NFL?Nearly every element that has made the 2016 Falcons offense special was on display in Week 12, when they welcomed a hungry, talented Arizona Cardinals defense. Despite their struggles with consistency, the Cardinals ended up finishing first in sack rate (8.1 percent), second in yards-per-play allowed (4.8), ninth in per-drive scoring rate (32.1 percent) and 10th in per-drive turnover rate (13.0 percent).The Cardinals received the opening kickoff and then drove for a touchdown, putting Ryan and company in a 7-0 hole. How the Falcons offense answered is a microcosm of how it’s dismantled NFL defenses all season long.Anchoring the run gamePerhaps the best free-agent acquisition of the offseason, center Alex Mack — the second-highest rated center in the league, according to Pro Football Focus — has transformed the Falcons’ line, providing a vital boost to the team’s pass protection and run-blocking. And his leadership on the team has set the tone for the Falcons’ young offensive line, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff told me during an August interview on SiriusXM’S “NFL Inside Read.”On Monday, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn called Mack a “real critical factor in what we do and how we play.” That was evident on the second play of the Falcons’ opening drive against the Cardinals in Week 12.On a zone run to the left, Mack (No. 51) engaged and overwhelmed Pro Bowl defensive end Calais Campbell (No. 93). Freeman (No. 24) cut behind Mack’s block and exploded through the opened seam:Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/538_falcons_mack-1.mp400:0000:0000:12Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Football Outsiders’ offensive line metrics rank the Falcons 10th in Adjusted Line Yards (4.09), up from 15th (3.82) last season. The balance provided by being able to run the ball is keeping the Atlanta offense on schedule and the chains moving; the Falcons’ run game was third in expected points added (+22.12) this season, up from 31st in 2015 (-62.96).Outstanding receiver playJulio Jones’s raw numbers this season were down from 2015, when he was a first-team All-Pro and led the league with 1,871 yards on 136 catches. But his efficiency is up significantly, and the Atlanta offense has been better for it. During the 2016 regular season, Ryan targeted Jones on 24.2 percent of his pass attempts, down from his force-fed 33.1 percent rate in 2015. The effectiveness of new receivers Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel, plus the continued impact of Freeman and Coleman out of the backfield, means that the entire Atlanta offense doesn’t have to run through Jones anymore. With Jones free to concentrate on beating defenses deep, his yards per catch exploded from a career-low 13.8 last season to 17.0. That’s Jones’s highest mark since his rookie season (17.8), when he was a high-powered complement to veteran No. 1 Roddy White.Ryan’s accuracy and ball placement haven’t been markedly better this season than in the past, as Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus wrote, but his receivers are getting open more often and catching the ball much more reliably.Gabriel (1st), Jones (2nd) and Sanu (34th) all rank among the top 35 receivers in DVOA, reflecting the per-play value each delivered on passes thrown their way. But Ryan’s collection of weapons is so robust that even down-roster players make big contributions. On the opening drive against Arizona in Week 12, rotational wideout Justin Hardy made a spectacular catch that turned an incomplete pass into a 27-yard gain:Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/538_falcons_hardy.mp400:0000:0000:17Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Dictating matchupsBut watch the Hardy catch again: The tight end goes in motion right, then turns around and sprints out to the left flat. The offensive line sells a zone run to the right, only for Ryan to sell a play fake and roll back to the left. Hardy’s two-move route takes him with the run action, then upfield, then back out to move with the quarterback.All-Pro Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson should have no problem covering a fourth-string wideout one-on-one, but his eyes are checking on the run action. By the time he gets his head around and watches Hardy make a second move, there’s too much separation for Peterson to recover. Ryan puts it high, and Hardy makes an outstanding catch.Throughout the drive, Shanahan uses motion, spread formations, bunch formations and varied personnel packages. Sanu lines up outside, inside — even as a Wildcat quarterback, fooling a linebacker with a read-option keeper:Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/538_falcons_sanu_b.mp400:0000:0000:18Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Any offensive coordinator can install a bunch of goofy looks and pre-snap window dressing. But Shanahan is dictating matchups and getting players open.Aggressive coachingThe 11-play touchdown drive (discounting a defensive penalty on the Cardinals’ 2-yard line) seems like a master class on how to execute a scripted game plan against a stout defense.But the Falcons’ offense did fail at one point in the drive. Peterson sniffed out a screen to Freeman on a 2nd-and-4 play from the Arizona 44, and on the next play, Coleman was stopped three yards short of the sticks.A 4th-and-3 in opponent territory? Other NFL head coaches might punt the ball away and surrender possession, but Quinn went for it. Shanahan dialed up a rub route, and Sanu made a drive-saving catch.The Wall Street Journal named Quinn the fourth-most-aggressive head coach of 2016, factoring in fourth-down decisions, play-calling and special-teams decisions. By pressing his talent and scheme advantage, Quinn is maximizing his chances of winning.It’s not just that Ryan has cut his interceptions down this season, from his career rate of 2.4 percent to 1.3 percent. It’s not just that the offensive line is playing much better, receiver depth is dramatically improved or that the coaches are getting optimal results from the available talent. It’s all of these factors coming together to challenge NFL defenses on every front — and make the Falcons look as ready as anybody to make a Super Bowl run.Check out our latest NFL predictions. read more
