New Delhi: Economic Offences Wing of the Delhi Police on Saturday registered multiple FIRs against Amrapali Leisure Valley Pvt Ltd and its Director Anil Kumar Sharma for cheating multiple investors over the last decade by promising them flats and villas and misappropriating the booking amounts while not delivering the projects.According to one complainant, the accused approached him with a villa project to be constructed in Greater Noida. The accused was selling a villa with parking space to the complainant for a price of Rs 60.5 lakh at a booking amount of Rs 4 lakh. The complainant subsequently transferred the booking amount and signed an allotment/buyer agreement in August 2010. He was promised to get the delivery of the property within 18 months of receiving the booking amount. The complainant eventually had to take a loan of nearly Rs 36 lakh in order to pay the remaining amount for the villa, for which he is still paying interest. According to the complainant, the developer failed to even finish construction of the project. And in addition to this, the developer also charged close to Rs 1 lakh under the pretext of having to pay Noida Authority. In another FIR against the aforementioned accused, the complainant alleged that the developer duped investors by assuring them that they had necessary permissions from concerned authorities for the construction. And based on that, several advertisements were taken out in newspapers, inviting members of the public to invest. Complainants in both FIRs said that company employees and Director Sharma were coy about arranging meetings at the site office after receiving the necessary booking amounts. Even when the complainant from the second FIR went to the Delhi Government Mediation Centre, the accused kept avoiding them. In addition to this, she also alleged that the accused developer has not yet paid outstanding arrears to concerned authorities in as many as three other construction projects in the Greater Noida area. The complainant from the first FIR also alleged that after being handed an unfinished villa, he was further asked to pay Rs 8 lakh to a third party developer for the completion of his property. Both complainants have alleged that the accused have continuously duped multiple investors in such projects and misappropriated crores in the name of collecting booking amounts and paying relevant authorities. A case has been registered u/s 406/420/120B of the IPC against the accused and his accomplices at EOW.

22 January 2009The United Nations human rights office has urged Nepalese authorities to ensure the safety of the wife and others involved in a domestic violence case, who have reportedly received threats after the victim’s husband was convicted of trying to kill her by setting her on fire. In a news release issued in Nepalgunj, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) said it is “deeply concerned about reports of threats received by the victim, human rights defenders and others in relation to their involvement in the case of Hasrun Idrisi, which was decided by the Banke District Court on 19 January. “The Office strongly urges the state authorities, including the Nepal Police and Chief District Officer, to take measures to ensure the security of the victim, her family, witnesses, the lawyers representing the victim, and other human rights defenders, in line with their obligations under domestic law,” added the OHCHR-Nepal statement. In a case that highlighted the serious issue of domestic violence in Nepal, Ms. Idrisi’s husband and a member of his family were convicted for attempted murder by setting her on fire on 6 November 2007. Ms. Idrisi suffered severe burns as a result of the attack. OHCHR-Nepal encouraged the Government to ensure that “robust” legislation on domestic violence, consistent with international standards, be passed as a matter of priority.

Led by Kawhi Leonard, the Toronto Raptors completely shut down the Bucks offense in Game 3, slicing Milwaukee’s Eastern Conference finals lead to 2-1 in the process. Mike Budenholzer’s crew finished the 2018-19 regular season ranked fourth in offensive efficiency, so holding them to just 93.1 points per 100 possessions across six periods1 Game 3 went to double overtime. stands as a highly impressive accomplishment for Toronto. Somewhat overshadowed in the discussion of that game, though, is that the Raptors’ own highly ranked offense struggled as well, continuing a concerning season-long trend against the Bucks.Toronto finished the regular season one spot behind Milwaukee in offensive efficiency, scoring at a rate of 113.1 points per 100 possessions. The Raptors hit that mark despite Leonard and Kyle Lowry each missing around a quarter of the season, among numerous other injuries, and despite having to incorporate new players both at the start of the season (Leonard and Danny Green) and on the fly after the trade deadline (Marc Gasol).That they were able to score so efficiently despite all those potential hurdles is a testament not just to the offensive design of coach Nick Nurse but also to the sheer magnitude of talent the Raptors assembled — and especially to the ability of Toronto’s players to solve whatever problems a defense posed for them throughout the year.But the one defense the Raptors consistently could not solve during the regular season was the Bucks’. And unfortunately for Toronto, they haven’t solved it in the conference finals so far either.Now 15 games into their playoff run, the Raptors have played 97 total games this season. Among those 97 contests, their offensive efficiency ranks in seven games against the Bucks are as follows: 22nd, 74th, 83rd (Game 2), 84th, 86th (Game 1), 89th (Game 3) and 96th.2The game that ranked 22nd actually saw the Raptors post their lowest Quantified Shot Quality of the season, per Second Spectrum, which means that their expected effective field-goal percentage based on the location of their shots ranked 97th out of their 97 games. They just happened to outshoot that expectation by 11 percentage points in that game. Put another way: Toronto has played a big chunk of its worst offensive basketball against Milwaukee.This is not necessarily all that shocking. The Bucks finished the regular season with the league’s best defense, after all. But even accounting for Milwaukee’s general defensive talent, there’s also a specific reason why the Bucks have been so effective at shutting down this Toronto team: No NBA defense is better than the Bucks at providing help against opponent drives, and the Raptors are one of the most drive-dependent teams in the league.Toronto ranked seventh in the league in drives per 100 possessions and fifth in points per drive during the regular season, per Second Spectrum. The Raptors were also the only team in the league to sport five different players who averaged at least 7.5 drives per game3One of those was late-season acquisition Jeremy Lin, but only a few other teams had four such players anyway.. And Toronto’s primary drivers were not just high-volume; they were also extremely effective.Leonard and Pascal Siakam drove to score, respectively ranking seventh and fifth in points percentage on the drive4The percentage of potential drive points that a player actually scored on his drives. among the 72 players who averaged at least 7.5 drives per game. Lowry and backup Fred VanVleet drove to pass, ranking first and seventh among that same group of 72 players in assist percentage5The percentage of a player’s drives that resulted in an assist. on the drive.Against the Bucks, though, the engines of Toronto’s drive-based attack too often ran into roadblocks: Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez. Per Second Spectrum, there were 70 NBA players who were credited as the help defender on at least 350 drives during the regular season. Among that group of 70 players, Antetokounmpo ranked first in team points allowed per possession (0.95) when he helped contain a drive, and Lopez (1.02) ranked seventh.Driving the lane before encountering help in the form of Antetokounmpo or Lopez has often proven too much for the Raptors to handle, especially Leonard and Lowry. During Leonard’s three regular-season games against Milwaukee, he was both less likely to shoot on the drive and less effective at converting those shots than he was against other teams. That trend has carried over to the conference finals, where Leonard is shooting just 11 of 28 on the drive through three games.While Lowry was a pass-heavy driver throughout the regular season, he was almost comically averse to shooting on the drive during the three games he played against the Bucks. His pass rate on the drive against Milwaukee was 18 percentage points higher than the most pass-happy high-volume driver in the league this season, Indiana’s Darren Collison. This aversion to shooting has also carried over to the conference finals, but his passing also just isn’t working right now. Of his 20 drives in Games 1 through 3, only one of his 12 passes resulted in an assist — and this is the guy who led the league in assist rate on the drive during the season.Isolating Leonard and Lowry’s drives to the ones on which Lopez or Antetokounmpo provided the help, as Second Spectrum allows, shows that the Raptors have scored only 30 points on 38 such direct drives during the conference finals,6A direct drive is a play in which the driver either shoots, is fouled, turns the ball over or passes to a player who shoots within one dribble. “good” for an anemic 0.79 points per drive. That simply won’t do — not when you’re trying to defeat the team with the NBA’s best record, led by the probable MVP and coach of the year winners.The good news for the Raptors is that they got themselves back into the series with their Game 3 win. The bad news is that unless they figure something out offensively, they’re going to have to play perfect defense again in Game 4 tonight to even the series 2-2, and beyond that, to advance to the NBA Finals. Against Giannis and these Bucks, that’s a whole lot easier said than done.Check out our latest NBA playoff predictions.

PLANS FOR BETTER perinatal hospice care in Ireland were discussed in Leinster House today.One Day More met with members of the Oireachtas to talk about the plans and to highlight the group’s new support network for parents of unborn babies with terminal illness.One Day More is a group of families who had a child diagnosed prenatally with severe disabilities.The group also launched their website today and a video of interviews with parents who opted against abortion after a poor pre-natal diagnosis.Spokesperson for One Day More Cliona Johnson said: Today is an important day for families of unborn babies with life-shortening conditions. One Day More is committed to delivering much improved peri-natal hospice care services in this country.Johnson believes there’s been a “disproportionate” focus of abortions in cases of babies with terminal illnesses.It is really sad that some people think abortion is the obvious answer when a life shortening condition is diagnosed. I believe attitudes would change considerably if more attention was given to the real life stories of women who opted against abortion and chose to keep their babies in these situations.The group have begun fundraising and also aim to seek support from the Government for perinatal hospice care.Another group Terminations for Medical Reasons (TFMR) have raised awareness of the issues facing Irish women who have made the “heartbreaking” choice to terminate pregnancies due to fatal foetal abnormalities.Irish people have to travel to the UK for a termination.Their website outlines how:We have all been traumatised, shocked and appalled that at our greatest time of need, our country turned its back on us and made us feel like criminals. We found ourselves in unfamiliar places away from family, friends and our homes. This is so cruel and barbaric and it can not continue to happen.Women who travelled to UK for terminations to bring case to United Nations>Stop exporting your abortion problem, Britain tells Ireland>More women seeking post-abortion counselling say IFPA>

Update: If you want to buy this cartridge, please be advised that it might destroy your SNES! This is what the official listing from iam8bit says:“Use of this reproduction game cartridge (the “Product”) on the SNES gaming hardware may cause the SNES console to overheat or catch fire. The SNES hardware is deemed a vintage collectible, so please exercise extreme caution when using the Product and make sure there is fire extinguishment equipment nearby.”My advice? Buy this thing just to show off. Don’t tempt fate and set your console on fire.Original story: What’s that familiar smell? Is that… nostalgia? In a year that has seen the release of Sonic Mania, and will soon give us the SNES Classic Edition and even a new freakin’ Atari system, Capcom has announced a re-release of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. Instead of tossing their classic fighting game onto modern systems, Capcom, along with iam8bit, will release it on a fully playable SNES cartridge. Why? Because nostalgia, man!This $100 collector’s edition will be extremely limited, with only 5,500 cartridges set for production. 4,500 copies are the “Opaque Ryu Red” variant, while the “Translucent Glow-in-the-Dark Blanka Green” version will be limited to 1000 copies. Buyers won’t know which cartridge they’ll get since they are randomly distributed. Considering how the Blanka cartridge is the ultra-rare one, I’m sure eager collectors hope they get that version.In addition to the Street Fighter II cartridge, the package comes with a tri-fold box with foil, gold, and embossments. There will even be a “premium” instruction booklet and “retro pack-in surprises.” I have no idea what theses “surprises” might be, but I bet you anything the only thing premium about the instruction booklet is that it’s in color. Remember when all instruction manuals were in color? Anyway, the whole package is being designed by Jango Snow Art & Design and is being manufactured by Retrotainment Games.I’m sure that collectors are feeling mighty ambivalent about this one. While a re-release of Street Fighter II on the SNES does sound tempting, most hardcore collectors probably already own the game. Then there’s also the matter of the system this cartridge is for. I don’t know many people who still play with (or own) an old-ass SNES console. But I guess that, just like with vinyl collectors, you’re really purchasing this for displaying (and bragging) purposes. I don’t know if I’ll get one for myself, but I applaud the effort behind this re-release.It should be noted that iam8bit says this is the first of a “Legacy Cartridge Collection.” If that’s the case, let’s hope we see cartridges for NES, Genesis, N64, and more. We can’t let the SNES have all the fun, after all.Make sure to head on over to iam8bit and grab a copy before they’re all gone!Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Apple set to hire from Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay this yearReutersIf you are in India and have often dreamt about how cool it would be to work for global tech giant Apple Inc., here’s some good news. The Cupertino, California, based firm is set to hire employees from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, this year.While the tech giant has been in talks with several IT institutes for the same for a while now, it has confirmed that it intends to hire from the Powai campus and has also started giving out application forms for it.”The tech giant is offering positions for coding profile and most computer science students and some enthusiasts from other streams have signed up for the test,” a source from IIT-Bombay told the Times of India.Even though a source has confirmed Apple’s participation in placements this year, IIT-B is yet to officially announce the news. Instead, it said: “We don’t want to comment whether Apple is participating or not.”Students who applied for the roles and were short-listed by Apple will now reportedly take up a test in the last week of November. The selected candidates will mostly be placed in the firm’s India facilities in Hyderabad and Bengaluru.The students at IIT-B are clearly thrilled with the opportunity to land a job with one of the most-loved brands and a student said: “The chance to be a part of the powerful ecosystem at Apple is so enticing that many of us have registered for the test and hope to be short-listed.”Meanwhile, Apple is yet to confirm if students from other institutes will also be hired and other IITs have said that they will need an answer in the next two to three days, failing which they would not be able to accommodate the tech giant. “Our schedule is very tight. There are three to four preliminary short-listing tests taking place everyday and if we don’t hear from Apple in the next two to three days, we will not have any slot to accommodate the company,” an institute’s placement head told the daily.Amid all the placement buzz, Apple seems to be irked with the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, after an announcement that the firm was set to hire talent from its campus.”We are elated that Apple has decided to come for our campus placements this year. We are not sure of the kind of profiles that the company will be offering. However, it will provide an opportunity to the graduating students to showcase their skills before representatives of the firm,” TV Devi Prasad, head of placements at the institute, had earlier told the daily.Apart from Apple, many other global brands including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google have been eyeing employees in India for a while now.
