What channel is Eagles vs. Falcons on today? Time, TV schedule for Week 2 ‘Sunday Night Football’ game

first_imgSure, the Falcons did not exactly light up the scoreboard in Minnesota last Sunday, but who can blame them? Facing off against a challenging defense on the road in the first week of the regular season is not an easy task, and the Vikings got the better of them, winning 28-12. The Eagles, on the other hand, seemed to be heading to a cold night of offense themselves after scoring just seven points in the first half before exploding for 25 in the second half to beat the Redskins 32-27. MORE: Watch Eagles vs. Falcons live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)After again missing several games due to injury last season, Wentz appeared to be in control in Philadelphia. He finished the game having completed 28 of 39 passes — three going into the end zone — for 313 yards. He was helped by a breakout performance in the return of longtime Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who donned a green and white jersey for the first time since 2013, and looked just like his old self, catching eight passes for 154 yards. He cashed in on touchdowns twice. Matt Ryan was forced to make plays for Atlanta without much support from his running game and was spotty for Atlanta. He completed 33 of 46 passes for 304 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions. One of those interceptions came in the end zone after Ryan had led his team 82 yards down the field in 13 plays to start the second half. Julio Jones, fresh off a recent contract extension, caught six passes for 31 yards and a touchdown. But in Atlanta, facing a Philadelphia defense that just gave up 27 points to Washington, the Falcons should be expected to have a better night and could make this a far more competitive Sunday night game than last week’s one-sided affair.Below is all the info you need to watch the Eagles vs. Falcons on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time.What channel is Eagles vs. Falcons on today?TV channel (national): NBCTV channel (Philadelphia): WCAUTV channel (Atlanta): WXIALive stream: fuboTVSunday night’s matchup between the Eagles and Falcons will be the second “Sunday Night Football” matchup of the year following the matchup between the Steelers and Patriots last Sunday.

Bali volcano ash drifts 47 miles high airport shut 3rd day

first_imgKARANGASEM, Indonesia – An erupting volcano with a deadly history on Indonesia’s Bali, one of the world’s most popular resort islands, has spread drifting ash 7,600 metres (4.7 miles) into the atmosphere and closed the island’s international airport for a third day Wednesday.Authorities have told 100,000 people to leave an area extending 10 kilometres (6 miles) from Mount Agung as it belches grey and white ash plumes, the low clouds hanging over the volcano at times hued red from the lava welling in the crater. The volcano’s last major eruption in 1963 killed about 1,100 people, but it’s unclear how bad the current eruption might get or how long it could last.Officials extended the closure of Bali’s international airport for another 24 hours due to concerns the thick volcanic ash could harm aircraft.Airport spokesman Ari Ahsanurrohim said more than 440 flights were cancelled Tuesday, affecting nearly 60,000 passengers, about the same as Monday. The closure was in effect until Thursday morning. Without aircraft, getting in or out of Bali requires travelling hours by land and taking a boat to another island, enduring choppy seas in Bali’s rainy season.Ahsanurrohim said Wednesday morning that volcanic ash has not been detected at the airport yet, but observations from the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Center show the ash has reached an altitude of 25,000 feet (7,600 metres) and was being blown southward and southwestward toward the airport.“I don’t know, we can’t change it,” said stranded German traveller Gina Camp, who planned to go back outside and enjoy another day on the island, which attracts about 5 million visitors a year to its famed resorts and world-class surf spots. “It’s nature and we have to wait until it’s over.”Experts said a larger, explosive eruption is possible or Agung could stay at its current level of activity for weeks.“If it got much worse, it would be really hard to think of. You’ve got a huge population centre, nearly a million people in Denpasar and surroundings, and it’s very difficult to envision moving those people further away,” said Richard Arculus, a volcano expert at Australian National University, adding that an eruption in 1843 was even more explosive than the one in 1963.“There are many examples in history where you have this kind of seismic buildup — steam ejections of a little bit of ash, growing eruptions of ash to a full-scale stratosphere-reaching column of ash, which can presage a major volcanic event,” he said.A NASA satellite detected a thermal anomaly at the crater, said senior Indonesian volcanologist Gede Swantika. That means a pathway from the storage chamber in the volcano’s crust has opened, giving magma easier access to the surface.Indonesian officials first raised the highest alert two months ago when seismic activity increased. More than 100,000 people living near the volcano fled their homes, many abandoning their livestock or selling them for a fraction of the normal price. The activity decreased by late October, and the alert was lowered before being raised to the highest level again Monday.Nearly 40,000 people are now staying in 225 shelters, according to the Disaster Mitigation Agency in Karangasem. But tens of thousands of villagers have remained in their homes because they feel safe or don’t want to abandon their farms and livestock.“Ash has covered my house on the floor, walls, banana trees outside, everywhere” said Wayan Lanus, who fled his village in Buana Giri with his wife and daughter.Flows of volcanic mud have been spotted on Agung’s slopes, and Arculus warned more are possible since it’s the rainy season.“They’re not making a lot of noise. It’s just suddenly coming like a flash flood out of nowhere,” he said. “You do not want to be near them. Stay out of the valleys.”Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” and has more than 120 active volcanoes.___Mason reported from Jakarta.

12000 cases filed since implementation of insolvency law setting up of NCLT

first_imgNew Delhi: As many as 12,000 cases have been filed since the implementation of the insolvency law and setting of National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), a senior government official said Monday. Asserting that the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) should be the last resort, Corporate Affairs Secretary Injeti Srinivas said the NCLT has been very expeditious in disposing cases related to insolvency. “In some of the NCLTs, the number of cases filed and the number of cases disposed off are almost the same. That means you are almost current,” he noted. Cases under the code can be taken up only after approval from the tribunal, which has benches in different parts of the country. Srinivas said that personal insolvency should be approached carefully and in a planned manner. “The issue of personal insolvency is an important dimension, which we have to address at the earliest. “Today, we have approximately Rs 77 lakh crore as outstanding non-food credit. Out of this, industry accounts for about Rs 26 lakh crore and the services sector accounts for about Rs 21 lakh crore. These two put together accounts for Rs 48 lakh crore. It is 70 per cent of non-food credit outstanding. We are left with 30 per cent which we need to address now,” Srinivas said. According to him, there are two routes for personal insolvency — one is insolvency process followed by bankruptcy process and the second one is a fresh start. A fresh start or a waiver or a waiver of a loan should be considered for debtors based on certain criteria such as income levels and assets, he said. Speaking at a conference organised by industry body CII and British High Commission, Srinivas said that since the commencement of the Code and setting up of the NCLT, 12,000 cases have been filed. “(Around) 4,500 cases have been settled before resolution to a settlement amount of almost Rs 2 lakh crore. 1,500 cases have been admitted… 6,000 cases are waiting in queue,” he added. The IBC provides for time-bound resolution of stressed assets. To a query on long time taken in resolving certain cases under the IBC, Srinivas observed that it would not be fair to say that cases have been lingering on. “May be these large cases have taken more than 270 days and some may be double of that but if you look at the size of that loan and the quantum of recovery, it is still an extraordinary sort of result. “In (the case of) Essar, more than Rs 42,000 crore would be (recovered). That is a very big sum and involves some many creditors… I think for such very large cases, there would be some amount of litigation and one year or little over one year for such a large case to be settled is not too long,” he said on the sidelines of the event. Further, he said the time taken for resolution of large cases is not too long, especially when it is compared with the average of four-and-a-half years which has been taking prior to the IBC. “The repayment behaviour of poor persons is much better than the repayment behaviour of richer people because they know their livelihood would come to an end if they default…,” Srinivas said. Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) Chairman M S Sahoo said the challenge before the Committee of Creditors (CoC) is the ability to recognise and distinguish between a company, which is potentially viable and unviable, then design a feasible resolution plan, while ensuring the firm’s value does not get further eroded in the process. The CoC should be willing to restructure its liability and delay liquidation if the company has the potential to be restored to health. However, the rescue plan should be confined only to viable companies, he said at the conference, according to a release issued by the CII. Noting that cross-border insolvency is still work in progress, Srinivas said that UNCITRAL provides for enough flexibility to have carve outs. “It is under the consideration of the government and very soon Parliament might also approve it,” he added. Established in 1966, UNCITRAL is a subsidiary body of the General Assembly of the UN with the general mandate to further the progressive harmonisation and unification of the law of international trade, as per its website. The UNCITRAL Model Law has been adopted in more than 40 countries. The model law deals with four major principles of cross-border insolvency, including direct access to foreign insolvency professionals and foreign creditors to participate in or commence domestic insolvency proceedings against a defaulting debtor. On the sidelines of the conference, Srinivas said that having insolvency counsellor is a very good idea. “We should look at it seriously. You should have an option for the counsellor to sort it out. Some mediation process should be there,” he added.last_img read more

AAP representing Purvanchalis since day one says Dilip Pandey

first_imgFrom the promise of standing beside the self-respect of the Purvanchali community to the dream of transforming the Yamuna Paar area. From stardom vs common man goals to the issue of full statehood, AAP North East Delhi candidate Dilip Pandey talks exclusively to Sayantan Ghosh. North East Delhi has a large Purvanchali population and from the day 1, AAP alleged that BJP has deleted many such voters name from the list, what is the ground situation of this constituency? Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderTo understand the ground politics of this constituency you have to look at the history of Purvanchalis in Delhi. Before AAP came to power in Delhi there was no political party which prioritised the Purvanchalis. When we started our work from day one we started representing these people. When I became the state convenor, I started sitting with the community people regularly to find out the issues they face. Later, BJP brought MP Manoj Tiwari who however hardly represented the Purvanchalis of Delhi. Then a time came when Purvanchalis were beaten up mercilessly by the BJP. We protested and held many local rallies. I also wrote to the BJP MPs on the issue but no one really did anything. Lastly, they came down to cut voters names from the list and we unmasked that too. Recently, if you see the Purvanchali turn out at Manoj Tiwari’s rally at Ramleela Maidan, you will see that there was very less Purvanchali presence. This shows that in the ground BJP has no support of these people. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings Current MP from this area is not only the state BJP chief but also one of the biggest stars of Bhojpuri film industry, how difficult for you to fight his stardom? He is a very big man and a star. But my fight is not against the stardom but for the people of North East Delhi. This part has been underdeveloped for years and that is what my top focus is. People of this area has always voted for big names some times for stars, sometimes for great politicians but this time I want people to vote for a person who stays with them. I can not fight the money power of BJP but I have the willpower hence here is the fight between money vs willpower. If you become the MP then what are the key things you would be working? If you ever ask a person of North East Delhi who is travelling to Central Delhi that where is he or she going, then you will get the answer that he or she is going to Delhi. The people here still find them as people of “Yamuna Paar” and my key focus is to change this notion. I will make this as developed as Delhi. The work has already started and the kickstart was the inauguration of Signature Bridge. Thereafter metro Pink Line also work also completed and many key projects of making roads are on the pipeline. When so many development works are needed for this area then how are you communicating the party’s key agenda of full statehood demand to the people? It is not a tough job as a major section of this are is the direct beneficiary of the Delhi government schemes. When I talk about full statehood I also say that on the full statehood can make Delhi safer and also help me to finish the pending works for. For an underdeveloped are like this constituency safety, housing, education and jobs have high demand. I am telling them that only if we get the full-statehood we would be able to deliver as required else everything would be delayed. I think the people of Delhi have witnessed the good work of AAP-government and empathise with the fact that the Center always obstruct the work.last_img read more
