HC guidelines for accident claim awards

first_imgThe Rajasthan High Court has laid downs guidelines for Motor Accident Claims Tribunals in the State to ensure that the awards passed in favour of the victims and claimants genuinely reach them and do not fall into the hands of unscrupulous elements. The directions came last week on a writ petition moved by a private insurance company.Justice Sandeep Mehta at the High Court’s principal seat in Jodhpur divided the guidelines into two segments of the procedure before and after passing the award. The Court said that the Claims Tribunals would take on record the bank account details of all the claimants and ensure that all details of tax deduction and addition of new claimants were available.After an award is passed, the Claims Tribunals will direct the insurance companies or transport corporations to deposit the awarded amount in the bank account by online transaction, according to the guidelines. The bank will receive the deposited sum and furnish a statement of account on a daily basis to the Registry of the Claims Tribunal.The Court said the Claims Tribunals would keep tab on the deposits made and correlate them with the awards on the basis of the letters received from insurance companies. The Claims Tribunals will ensure that the details of bank account are incorporated in the award itself, for compliance by those required to satisfy the award. The tribunals would also ensure that the same procedure was followed in case of compromise recorded in the Lok Adalat proceedings.The Court noted that some exhaustive guidelines on the subject were laid down by the Madras High Court in 2016. While issuing the directions for the Claims Tribunals, The Court said it had made certain amendments in the Chennai guidelines which had become necessary with the passage of time and directed them to be implemented in Rajasthan.last_img read more

first_img​Monaco boss Henry: I talk to Fabregas every two, three daysby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveMonaco boss Thierry Henry has admitted that he would be interested in Cesc Fabregas.It has been suggested in the British and French press that Fabregas is set to leave Chelsea, with a multi-year deal with Monaco touted as the most likely option.And the French club’s manager, who only took over the job earlier this season, would like to have Fabregas in his team.But he has not given any indication that a deal is set to be completed.”You saw like me, there was a standing ovation, tears,” Henry said of Fabregas to reporters. “Since I left Arsenal we talk every two or three days. It hasn’t changed in the last few days. He’s a player that interests all clubs.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

a month agoChelsea 2019 is the new Class of 92′ – Cascarino

first_imgAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say Chelsea 2019 is the new Class of 92′ – Cascarinoby Ansser Sadiqa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino is hyping up the club’s youngsters as they continue to produce on the pitch.The likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham are starting to reward Frank Lampard’s faith in their talent.With Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek to come into the team, Cascarino believes the Blues have a core of great young players.He is even comparing them to Manchester United’s famous Class of 92, which included the likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.He told talkSPORT: “When we had the ‘Class of ’92’ at Manchester United we applauded them for bringing all these young players through.”Fergie (Sir Alex Ferguson) was very fortunate to have such a group of players coming through at the same time.”I’ve always been frustrated of Chelsea having so much success in the youth system but never having that conveyor belt of bringing those players through into the first team.”Tammy was one of a good number of players who probably wouldn’t have been in the team if Chelsea had a transfer budget. They probably wouldn’t have been anywhere near the first team, Tammy would have gone on loan somewhere else.”So let’s give Lampard some credit here because he has got choices at Chelsea, their squad is big enough not to play these young players. Olivier Giroud could easily have played at centre-forward [against Wolves].”At the start of the season it probably would have been Giroud first choice, Michy Batshuayi second and Tammy third, but Tammy has become the number one choice in a matter of three games. That’s credit to him but also the manager, because Frank has chosen to make that decision.”Then you’ve got Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi waiting in the wings and Ruben Loftus-Cheek who is older than the others but you’d like to think he’ll play a lot this season.”I’ve always thought it would have been such a mistake to have had all these great academy players and them not to have some sort of say in Chelsea’s future in the next five years, so I’m delighted.” last_img read more

first_imgzoomIllustration; Image by WMN Russian shipping major Sovcomflot placed an order for three product carriers that use LNG fuel as their primary fuel in late December.The company said that it ordered the MR vessels from compatriot Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex on December 28, 2018.To feature a deadweight of 51,000 tonnes each, the units would transport petroleum products and gas condensate under long-term time charter agreements with Novatek, one of the largest independent natural gas producers in Russia.SCF said that each tanker would have an ice class of 1B, enabling safe operations in areas with challenging ice conditions, including the Baltic.“The technical specification of the tankers reflects the international regulatory limits on sulphur, nitrogen and greenhouse gas emissions, which will come into effect in 2020,” SCF added.The deal comes on the back of an order for two 114,000 dwt LNG-fueled Aframax crude oil tankers, which Sovcomflot placed with Zvezda in September 2018.last_img read more

Steph Curry Trails Shaun Livingston In The NBA Finals MVP Race

Andre Iguodala+54+19%+3.2 For all of his supposed offensive woes, Curry has a slight edge on total offensive contribution. But Steph has had an abnormally poor defensive outing. Thus, on a combined points-contributed basis, we can see that Livingston pretty much dwarfs the competition as it stands, having contributed 24.1 points to Steph’s 4.3 and Klay Thompson’s 3.5. Here’s a table with the combined points added for all the Warriors players who have averaged 15-plus minutes in the series, as well as their plus/minuses (from ESPN) and WPAs (per inPredict): After beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 on Friday night, the Golden State Warriors are one win away from their second consecutive NBA championship. Moreover, regular-season MVP Stephen Curry finally had a big game, going seven for 13 on 3-pointers and scoring 38 points. In a series with few breakout performances, this may be enough to regain Curry the inside lane on the Finals MVP should the Warriors win in the days ahead.Now, don’t get me wrong: I think Curry is the most valuable player on the Warriors, and would be no matter what. But if there’s going to be a silly award for contributing “value” over a small number of games — and we’re willing to give that award to the Andre Iguodalas of the sport when they step up — Curry’s uneven performance so far still puts him in a pretty sizable hole, especially relative to his backup, Shaun Livingston.Granted, Livingston has averaged 10 points per game (compared with Curry’s 21.5), but he has done it on 16 of 25 shots, for an effective field goal percentage of 64 percent (the highest on the Warriors of anyone with more than 20 shots).More importantly, in his 89 minutes of play (Curry has 131), Livingston has also been an extremely effective defender, with his opponents’ effective shooting coming in at a team-low 28 percent.Livingston has been involved in fewer plays than many of his teammates, but his per-play contribution has more than made up for that deficit. Using qSI (amount scored above/below expectation for each shot) for shots taken and defended, we can sum up the total number of points added by each player on each side of the ball: Draymond Green+36+11%+1.6 Klay Thompson+11+10%+3.5 SHOOTER+/-WPACOMBINED POINTS ADDED Shaun Livingston+31+17%+24.1 Harrison Barnes0+18%-2.3 Warriors averaging at least 15+ minutes per Finals game.Source: NBA PLAYER-TRACKING DATA, espn, Inpredictable Who’s done the most for the Warriors? Stephen Curry+12-1%+4.3 Iguodala leads in plus/minus, and is the choice of some to repeat as MVP. But Livingston holds his own in those much more volatile stats while dominating the tracking metrics. And Curry trails across the board.Of course, the player-tracking doesn’t capture all value contributed, nor does MVP voting hew perfectly to value. If Curry puts up big numbers in a Game 5 victory, he will almost certainly win the award; the same may be true of virtually anyone with the race seeming so wide open. But at this moment, the balance of evidence suggests that Curry’s mid-range-shooting backup has been the most on fire so far. read more

The National League Finally Is Getting Some Interleague Revenge

Obviously, it’s still early. But even if we limit ourselves to the first 50 interleague games of each season (to make an apples-to-apples comparison with 2018), this is the NL’s best record in interleague play ever, supplanting its 31-19 start in 1999. Back then, the NL was competitive — it ended up winning almost 54 percent of its games against the AL that year. This season might bring a long-awaited return to its old form.Some of the reasons for the change were emerging last year. The DH just isn’t the advantage it used to be; so far this season, AL designated hitters have an on-base plus slugging (OPS) of only .725, their worst mark in nearly three decades. Perhaps that’s why AL teams are just 6-19 (a miserable .240 winning percentage) at home against the NL this year, a complete reversal of the trend that used to fuel American League dominance.The specter of tanking also applies here. Of the nine teams tracking for at least 88 losses in FiveThirtyEight’s MLB prediction model, six (the White Sox, Royals, Orioles, Tigers, Rangers and Rays) are in the AL. 4After Tampa Bay at 88 losses, the next-losingest predicted record belongs to the Oakland Athletics (84 losses), a big gap that probably can serve as the de facto barrier between tankers and simply mediocre ballclubs. Meanwhile, some of the most improved teams in the majors (such as the Braves, Phillies and Pirates) are in the NL, along with a group of already solid teams who got better over the offseason (the Diamondbacks, Cardinals and Brewers).Although the AL still has the advantage in top-line talent — only one of this year’s top 10 in WAR (Nationals ace Max Scherzer) is in the NL — things appear to have tilted in the NL’s favor overall. It’s worth noting that the NL has gotten off to a hot start before, only to crash and burn by year’s end: In 2016, it won 30 of the first 50 interleague games… then promptly went 105-145 the rest of the way. So we could end up looking back and thinking how cute it was that the NL had such a large early edge on its AL rivals. But at least there are some reasons to think this year is different, and that the NL’s newfound success is sustainable. For all the talk about conference imbalance in the NBA, basketball isn’t the only pro sport in which one half of the league usually dominates the other.1And the West does dominate in the NBA. Even after a rocky start, it ended up winning the NBA’s interconference battle for the ninth straight season in 2017-18, 221-199. Since baseball’s Interleague play was introduced in 1997, it has largely served as an excuse for the American League to show its superiority: The AL went into the 2018 season having run up a 1,503-1,257 record on the National League in interleague play over the previous decade. How good is that? If the average AL team were playing a 162-game season against its NL counterpart over that span, it would win 88 games — roughly good enough to make the playoffs in the NL most seasons.Why the big disparity? For one thing, the AL has typically had more star power: In the past decade, eight of the top 10 players in baseball according to wins above replacement2Using an average of the WAR versions found at Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs. (Mike Trout, Adrian Beltre, Zack Greinke, Robinson Cano, Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Evan Longoria and Dustin Pedroia) spent time in the AL, while only three (Clayton Kershaw, Joey Votto and Greinke) played in the NL.3You can extend this further down the list if you want: 13 of the top 15 played in the AL, versus just six in the NL, and so forth. The rule difference that grants AL teams a designated hitter at home also helped them rack up a big home-field advantage over the years.But so far in 2018, the AL’s edge has eroded. After about a month and a half, NL teams are 32-18 against their AL foes, outscoring them 242-208. If this holds, it would be the first time the NL has won interleague play since the 2003 season. read more
