Sugarcane farmers threaten stir

first_imgFarmers and farmers’ groups in Uttar Pradesh are feeling increasingly unhappy with the piling up of sugarcane arrears. Sugarmills are yet to pay over ₹11000 crore in dues to the farmers in the State. The State sugarmill association, however, blames the decreasing rate of sugar for its inability to sufficiently and promptly clear the dues.According to officials of the State Cane Department, cane dues are ₹10657 crore, which has led to many farmers’ groups in the State to warn of agitation and State-wide protest.The Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), the biggest and most influential farmers’ body, and the Bharatiya Kisan Mazdoor Manch (BKMM) have threatened protests in every district against the failure of the State government to get the sugarmills to clear their dues. “The BJP government had won the votes of the farmers promising them to deliver cane dues in 14 days from the beginning of the crushing. The arrears will soon cross ₹12,000 crore but the government is yet to come up with any solution. Only yesterday a farmer in Saharanpur attempted suicide by taking poison after the local bank issued him recovery notice. Such incidents will become more frequent if the Adityanath government continues to sleep,” said Prof. Sudhir Panwar, former Member of the State Planning Commission. Mr. Panwar said the situation of farmers in western U.P. districts like Baghpat, Shamli, Meerut, Muzaffarnagar and Saharanpur was worseCane Development Minister Suresh Rana, however, said the government was doing everything possible to ensure timely payment of dues. “We are acting against sugar mills which are not paying the farmers. District administrations are issuing notices and taking actions against the defaulter sugar mills,” he said. Highly placed sources in the State Cane Department told The Hindu that the Modi government was contemplating a whole range of solutions to deal with the crisis, including proposing a production-linked subsidy scheme for sugarcane farmers, imposition of sugar cess and reducing GST on ethanol.last_img read more

Muslim man defies curfew to take pregnant Hindu woman to hospital

first_imgWith prayers on his lips, a Muslim man drove his auto-rickshaw as fast as he can in a curfew-hit town, so that a Hindu woman who was in an advanced stage of labour could reach the hospital on time. They made it and a boy, aptly named ‘Shanti’, was born on Sunday when curfew was in force in Hailakandi following communal clashes just two days ago. Accompanied by district Superintendent of Police Mohneesh Mishra, Hailakandi Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli visited the residence of Rubon Das and Nandita, parents of the new-born, on Wednesday and said, “We need more such examples of Hindu-Muslim unity and amity.” She also congratulated Maqbool, Rubon’s neighbour, for helping his friend at the time of distress, overriding the communal tension prevailing in the district. One person was killed in police firing and at least 15 people were injured, while more than 15 vehicles were damaged and 12 shops vandalised and set on fire in some parts of the town during communal clashes on Friday, forcing the authorities to clamp an indefinite curfew in the district. Two days later, Rubon was frantically calling his near and dear ones for help. He needed an ambulance to take Nandita to hospital as she was writhing in labour pain. In between the calls, Rubon said, “I was trying to calm my wife down saying someone will surely come to take us to hospital in Hailakandi town.” The S K Roy Civil Hospital is a few kilometres away from their Rajyeshwarpur Part I village. However, no help came for them in the curfew affected area and, in the meanwhile, Nandita’s pain increased. At that time, Rubon’s friend and neighbour Maqbool heard his predicament and rushed to his residence with his auto-rickshaw. As Maqbool was driving the vehicle, speeding along the deserted roads, the only thing haunting him was whether he would make it on time to the hospital.“I was trying to comfort them…. telling them everything will be fine. But I myself was praying,” said Maqbool. His timely help paid off and Nandita delivered a healthy boy at around 5.30 pm. Both friends heaved a sigh of relief after knowing that the condition of both the mother and the child was fine. Rubon at once decided to name his son ‘Shanti’ who was born amid curfew following a communal strife. The good news spread, with the Administrator of the hospital Bhaskar Das describing the incident as a classic instance of Hindu-Muslim brotherhood. Cuddling the baby, Jalli said, “It’s good to know that the baby has been named Shanti by the parents with the hope that lasting peace will return to Hailakandi.”last_img read more

Kiiwetinoong Vast new northern Ontario riding fledges wings as vote looms

first_imgSIOUX LOOKOUT, Ont. – From the shadows of the hill in the south on which the Ojibwa once watched for the invading Sioux, to the frozen mouth of the almost 1,000-kilometre-long majestic Severn River in the north, the noisy partisan tussle that is the looming Ontario election seems largely irrelevant.Welcome to Kiiwetinoong, home to about 32,000 people in four municipalities and more than three dozen remote Indigenous communities. Spread across two time zones, the riding — the only one with an Indigenous majority — is also home to four major languages and numerous dialects.Kiiwetinoong — Ojibwa for North — is one of two new ridings aimed at giving residents of the often-ignored vast region a stronger voice at the legislature in Toronto. Whether anyone cares to listen is an open question for Lola Goodwind, a teacher at the Obishikokaang elementary school in Lac Seul First Nation, about 40 minutes from Sioux Lookout.“What worries me sometimes is that when people voice their opinion, does it really matter, does it really carry over, is it heard?” Goodwind says as her students play at a table or vroom toy trucks along the carpet.Hundreds of kilometres to the north, Kathleen Koostachin, 44, a native language instructor at Keewaytinook Internet High School in Fort Severn, talks about suicides, land claims and the need for a healing lodge. She, too, wonders who is listening.“They talk about it, but there’s no action,” Koostachin says. “In our communities, health services are very lacking.”Koostachin and Goodwind have yet to take a deeper dive into what the various parties might be offering. But for Goodwind at least, in a region comprising almost one-third the area of the province, she only has to walk across the gravel road to the Lac Seul band office in Frenchman’s Head to find one of the candidates.Chief Clifford Bull, who is carrying the flag for the Progressive Conservatives under Doug Ford, admits the logistics of campaigning in a riding where most communities are accessible only by an expensive plane ride — are daunting. The complexities are exacerbated by the apparent indifference — or even hostility — many First Nations voters feel toward government, he says.“There’s still some anger,” Bull says. “Being left out, not being heard at Queen’s Park; and being adversarial at times and court cases, even jail for that matter.”About 40 minutes from Bull’s office, one of his rivals settles into a chair at his home in Sioux Lookout overlooking a still-frozen Pelican Lake and makes it clear he has no interest in the kind of partisan nastiness that has become part and parcel of election battles.Instead, Liberal candidate Doug Lawrance emphasizes what he sees as the increasingly intertwined relationships between the area’s non-Indigenous and Indigenous residents. Sioux Lookout and Lac Seul, he notes, have a friendship accord — a reflection of common interests.“I’m not opposing Clifford Bull. I’m proposing Liberal values that I’ve always held,” says Lawrance, the town’s mayor. “Our interests are so interrelated.”Indeed, the relative metropolis of Sioux Lookout — population about 8,300 of which more than half is Indigenous — is the hub in the province’s northwest. It’s a frequent destination for those in need of its modern hospital, its schools, and other services.Kiiwetinoong has been carved out from a larger riding dominated by the NDP for decades. Sioux Lookout, most agree, is in urgent need of 200 long-term care beds but has just 20. Additionally, Lawrance says, services such as a detox centre and treatment facilities for substance abuse are essentially non-existent. There’s also a perennial shortage of mental health supports.“The NDP has sadly let us down,” Lawrance says in his most biting partisan comment.At Obishikokaang elementary, teacher Allan Mark Kendle says serving in the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan a decade ago has left him familiar with post-traumatic stress disorder and the difficulties of finding help.“If I can’t find help in the North, how are the kids and the families here going to?” says Kendle, 49, who comes from southern Ontario. “The Liberals have had an incredible run at failing the First Nations in the mental health area.”Charles Cirtwill, who heads the Northern Policy Institute, says northern programs often end up getting cut because they don’t resonate in the voter-rich south. The myopia is a mistake, particularly when it comes to First Nations, he says.“These people are provincial residents as well: provincial citizens, provincial voters,” Cirtwill says. “Despite the important federal role, the province can’t ignore its responsibilities.”Sioux Lookout resident Sol Mamakwa, a member of the Kingfisher Lake First Nation who works with the politically influential Nishnawbe Aski Nation, planned to announce his intention on Monday of vying to become the first New Democrat to represent the brand new riding. He declined an interview.Jeremy Capay, 33, manager of the Lac Seul events centre, cited the high cost of food as well as services for seniors as key issues. At the same time, he says, provincial politics barely register in the community of about 1,000.“We see it on the news, we see it on our social media pages when it comes to stuff about our federal government, but what about our provincial government?” Capay says. “It’s something that needs to be talked about more often.”For Anne Ayotte, who is helping run Bull’s campaign, the dominant election issues tend to be of the pocketbook variety: the high cost of living that includes pricey fuel, electricity and groceries.As a small business co-owner and a former aide to a cabinet minister in then-prime minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, Ayotte says economic development is critical. Ford understands that even if he’s still a bit hazy on how the North works, she says.“We shouldn’t be priced out of anyone living here,” says Ayotte, as she sits in a small diner in Hudson, a hamlet between Sioux Lookout and Lac Seul.Still, the idea that Bull is running for the Conservatives doesn’t sit well with Garnet Angeconeb, 62, an Order of Canada recipient for his work on Indigenous rights.“Many Conservatives, whether federal or provincial, don’t yet fully understand the true impacts of cultural genocide inflicted upon our people,” Angeconeb said in a letter to Bull. “As a proponent for resource development — mining, hydro electrification, logging — how do you plan to re-address long-standing environmental and devastating health issue caused upon our brothers and sisters?”Back in his office, Bull ponders the missive. He’s painfully aware of the strains between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, and the sometimes large divide between the province’s north and south.“Relationships in the past have not always been very beneficial for both sides. There’s been tension, animosity,” Bull says. “I guess a lot of it has to do with not knowing each other.”Ford’s message of lower taxes doesn’t resonate with First Nations, Bull admits. But the chief plans to campaign hard. At the same time, he says, the mud-slinging typical of elections down south isn’t expected.“Kiiwetinoong is going to have the friendliest campaign in all of Ontario,” he says laughing. “You need to build relationships.”last_img read more

Sens owner Melnyk sues partner in stalled development deal that includes arena

first_imgOTTAWA — Senators owner Eugene Melnyk is suing his business partner in a development deal that was meant to bring a new NHL arena to Ottawa’s downtown.Capital Sports Management Inc., a group controlled by Melnyk, said in a release Friday that it has started legal proceedings against John Ruddy, the chair of Trinity Development Group Inc., “seeking damages arising out of a failed joint venture between Trinity and CSMI.”The statement alleges the two companies were not able to finalize a master development agreement for the LeBreton Flats area of Ottawa, a couple of blocks southwest of Parliament Hill.CSMI says its statement of claim “alleges a number of breaches, all arising out of a conflict of interest, that directly resulted in the failure of the partnership.”The statement of claim was filed a day after the National Capital Commission, the Crown corporation which is responsible for the land at LeBreton Flats, said the Senators-backed RendezVous LeBreton Group advised the NCC on Nov. 8 that they had not been able to resolve internal partnership issues.The NCC picked RendezVous for a development deal at LeBreton Flats that included a new NHL arena for the Senators as well as housing developments.The Senators currently play at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata, about 22 kilometres west of Ottawa’s downtown.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Danes erect fence on German border to stop swine fever

COPENHAGEN — Workers in Denmark have begun erecting a 70-kilometre (43.4-mile) fence along the German border to keep out wild boars in the hope of preventing the spread of African swine fever, which could jeopardize Denmark’s valuable pork industry.The steel fence, which will be up to 1.5 metres (5 feet) tall, was approved by Danish lawmakers in June.The Danish government has warned that Denmark’s pork exports to non-European Union countries — worth 11 billion kroner ($ 1.6 billion) annually — could be affected by the disease. In 2016, total Danish pork exports were worth about 30 billion kroner ($4.55 billion).Denmark is the only EU country where pigs outnumber people, with 215 pigs to every 100 residents.The Associated Press read more

WatchMore than double the number of Canadians hit by Equifax cyber attack

TORONTO — Equifax Canada has revised the number of Canadians caught up in a massive data breach earlier this year, saying an investigation has found that more than 19,000 were affected.The company previously said about 8,000 Canadian customers had their personal information compromised in the cyber attack, but couldn’t say how many additional credit cards were impacted across the country.Equifax issued a statement on Tuesday saying 11,670 of the affected credit cards are Canadian, bringing the total number of Canadians impacted by the hack to about 19,000.The company says an investigation has revealed that the credit card records contain names, addresses, credit or debit card numbers, expiry dates and Social Insurance Numbers.Hackers also accessed or stole the personal data of 145.5 million U.S. consumers and nearly 400,000 Britons in the breach, which was discovered on July 29.The company says it is notifying all affected consumers by mail, and is offering free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services to affected Canadians.Equifax first notified the public of the security breach on Sept. 7, though it said the unauthorized access is thought to have happened from May 13 to July 30.The company previously said that it believes that hackers accessed Equifax Canada’s systems through a consumer website application intended for use by U.S. consumers.But a website for Equifax’s Canadian division now says Canadian systems were not affected and are “entirely separated from those impacted by the Equifax Inc. cyber security incident reported in the U.S.”Equifax is facing investigations in Canada and the U.S., as well as at least two proposed class actions filed in Canada. read more

US orders for durable goods rise 33 per cent in April helped

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted May 24, 2013 8:57 am MDT WASHINGTON – U.S. orders for long-lasting manufactured goods rebounded in April, buoyed by more demand for aircraft and stronger business investment. The gains suggest economic growth may be holding steady this spring.Orders for durable goods, items expected to last at least three years, rose 3.3 per cent last month from March, the Commerce Department said Friday. That followed a 5.9 decline in March.A measure of business investment plans increased 1.2 per cent. And the government revised the March figure to show a 0.9 per cent gain, instead of a slight decrease.Companies ordered more machinery and electronic products last month, typically signs of confidence. More spending by businesses could ease fears that manufacturing could drag on the economy later this year.Factories had been seeing fewer orders at the start of the year, in part because slower global growth had reduced demand for U.S. exports. Economists had also worried that across-the-board federal spending cuts and higher taxes might prompt businesses to cut back on orders.Paul Ashworth, an economist with Capital Economics, said the April report suggests economic growth is holding up. He predicts growth in the April-June quarter will be at a rate of 2 per cent to 2.5 per cent. That’s not much lower than the 2.5 per cent rate reported for the January-March quarter.Still, the payoff from the pickup in business investment may not come until the end of the quarter. That’s because the government looks at shipments when it measures the gross domestic product, not orders. And shipments of goods that signal investment plans fell in April, reflecting weaker demand at the start of the year.“Business investment appears to have started the second quarter on a weak note but should rebound over the final two months of the quarter,” he said.The April increase pushed total orders to $222.6 billion on a seasonally adjusted basis. That is 6.5 per cent above the level of a year ago.Orders for transportation goods gained 8.1 per cent, reflecting a 16.1 per cent jump in demand for commercial aircraft and a 53.3 per cent increase in orders for military aircraft. Orders for motor vehicles increased 1.9 per cent.Excluding the volatile transportation category, orders rose 1.3 per cent in April. That followed a 1.7 per cent decline in March.Still, other reports showed that factories continued to struggle in April.The Institute for Supply Management reported factory activity barely expanded in April, held back by weaker hiring and less company stockpiling.And manufacturing output dropped 0.4 per cent last month, the Federal Reserve reported earlier this month. Auto companies cranked out fewer cars, factories made fewer consumer goods and most other industries reduced output.One bright spot for the economy has been the American consumer, who has shown surprising resilience this year despite paying higher Social Security taxes.Consumer spending rose from January through March at the fastest pace in more than two years. Auto sales have been rising over the past year. And Americans boosted their spending at retailers in April, from cars and clothes to electronics and appliances.A better job market and a sustained recovery in housing have helped soften some of the impact of the tax increase. Since November, employers have added an average 208,000 jobs a month. That’s up from just 138,000 jobs a month during the previous six months.The overall economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5 per cent in the January-March quarter, buoyed by the fastest rise in consumer spending in more than two years. Many economists believe growth is slowing to around 2 per cent in the current April-June quarter and could stay near or slightly above that level for the rest of the year.

CSeries delivery challenges gets Bombardier downgraded by Goldman Sachs

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 2, 2014 1:13 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Goldman Sachs has reiterated its downgrade of Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) and shaved its stock price forecast even further amid expectations of additional delays in the Quebec company’s CSeries jetliner program and the decision by a Swedish buyer to abandon its position as launch operator.“We believe another delay in the Bombardier CSeries entry-into-service is inevitable, increasingly likely before 2014 year-end, and could even occur whenever flight tests resume,” New York analyst Noah Poponak wrote Tuesday in a report.The CSeries commercial jet has been grounded for more than three months since an engine failure halted its flight test program.Swedish company Braathens Aviation (Malmo) disclosed last week that it will no longer be the aircraft’s first operator. In 2011, it placed an order for five CS100 planes and five CS300 models, for a total of $655 million, with options on more.But the CSeries development program is two years behind schedule, with the flight test phase often proving the most challenging for any new aircraft.The Goldman anticipates the plane will be more than six months behind Bombardier’s plan to deliver the smaller CS100 version with 110 to 125 seats during the second half of 2015. It’s an outlook shared by many other analysts.He said the plane and its larger CS300 version with up to 160 seats plane will “negatively impact” Bombardier’s (TSX:BBD.B) financial results and create “negative catalysts” for several years. He shaved 20 cents off his 12-month target price for Bombardier shares to C$3 and once again urged investors to sell the stock.The plane requires 2,400 flight test hours for certification but has flown just 300 hours. Poponak said Bombardier will have to dramatically pick up the pace of flight tests to 160 hours per month to achieve its delivery schedule.“We see that as very unlikely given the pace achieved before grounding, momentum (not just time) lost during grounding, and the high risk of new problems occurring other than this engine incident,” he wrote in a report.The analyst added that the size and quality of the CSeries orders suggest overall demand may not be strong with a significant risk of deferrals and cancellations.Bombardier has received 203 firm orders and 513 overall commitments for the airplane. It hopes to have 300 firm orders by first delivery.DBRS Ratings Service maintained its rating for Bombardier at BB (low). It said the company’s credit metrics have been deteriorating and will remain constrained by high capital expenditures at the aerospace division and weak profitability in transportation for 12 to 14 months.“Even though the company has adequate liquidity to fund its operations, ongoing cash burn in the last few years could put the company’s liquidity position at risk,” it wrote last week, adding that a downgrade could happen with further CSeries delays.But Canaccord Genuity analyst David Tyerman sees promise in Bombardier, maintaining a $5 target price. He foresees “significant” earnings growth in the coming years from new aircraft launches, margin improvements at aerospace and transportation from restructuring, higher demand for some aircraft and the lower Canadian dollar.He cautions that Bombardier’s improvement may unfold slowly but doesn’t believe Malmo’s decision will change prospects for the plane.“So, our buy call is best for patient investors,” he wrote, adding that the CSeries should be a positive catalyst in the coming year.Tyerman said he expects other CSeries customers will either take Malmo’s slots or the delivery schedule will start more slowly than originally planned.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Bombardier’s shares were down one cent at C$3.65 in Tuesday afternoon trading. Over the past year, they have traded between $3.44 and $5.43.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter CSeries delivery challenges gets Bombardier downgraded by Goldman Sachs read more

LeBrons Cavs Are The Best Team Ever To Fire Its Coach Midseason

But as far as we can tell, no coach has been fired under similar circumstances before.Below, you’ll find a table of NBA coaches since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77 who were fired or resigned in the middle of the regular season when their teams had an Elo rating of 1550 or higher.1The table excludes interim head coaches who were dismissed after a permanent replacement was found. The league-average Elo rating is about 1500, so a rating of 1550 reflects a pretty good team; about as good as the Atlanta Hawks right now.

But Blatt’s Cavs haven’t just been good; they’ve been on the verge of great. The team’s current Elo rating is 1669, far higher than that of any other team when it fired a coach mid-season.When a coach does get fired despite a solid record, it’s usually because his team is underperforming lofty expectations. But that can’t really be said of the Cavs. Their preseason team win total at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook was 56.5 wins; they’re actually a little ahead of that pace, currently projecting to finish the season 61-21 instead.Yes, the Cavs were embarrassed on Monday by the Warriors, 132-98. But one bad regular-season loss isn’t usually enough to doom a coach. It’s reasonable to ask whether the overt tension between Blatt and superstar LeBron James played a role because there’s not really a good precedent for something like this happening. (James was reportedly not consulted about Blatt’s firing.)Larry Brown resigned under pressure as head coach of the New Jersey Nets late in the 1982-83 season despite a 47-26 record, but that was because he’d agreed to take a job the next season at the University of Kansas. Del Harris was canned as Lakers’ head coach early in the 1998-99 season when the team had a strong 1611 Elo rating, but its record was just 6-6 at that point, below the perennially high expectations in Lakerland.

For A Passing League The NFL Still Doesnt Pass Enough

Houston-0.2025+0.2857+32 RunsDropbacks Tennessee61273947 Washington1046931 Indianapolis-0.0432-0.1530-2 Tennessee1286139 The 3-point revolution in basketball was driven in large part by the finding that the three has a higher expected value than a midrange jump shot.1A three is worth approximately 1 expected point, while a midrange shot is worth about 0.8 expected points. While the math is simple and clear, the revolution didn’t occur overnight — or even in the first few decades after the 3-point line was introduced. Because those longer shots don’t go through the hoop as often as midrangers, missing a shot feels like failure. There is a slightly counterintuitive aspect to it.Now imagine a world where 3-pointers aren’t simply worth more as measured by expected points, but where they also go through the hoop more often. The benefits of the three would be stunningly obvious. We might even question the competence of coaches and teams that didn’t attempt them as much as possible.That’s where the NFL is currently living. The NFL is a passing league that somehow doesn’t pass enough. NFL teams know the medicine works yet stubbornly refuse to take a clinically effective dose.To be clear, teams are certainly passing more often than they used to. Leaguewide passing attempts per game have risen from 32.3 in 2008 to 34.2 last year, and the increase in volume has not been accompanied by a decrease in efficiency. Leaguewide yards per attempt have increased slightly from 6.9 to 7.0, and more touchdowns are being scored by passing relative to running than at any time in league history. Completion percentage is up from 61.0 percent to 62.1 percent, and the interception rate has fallen from 2.8 percent to 2.5 percent. Yet despite all these positive indicators, teams remain unwilling to break old habits and throw in many classic rushing situations.The biggest culprit is first down, the most traditional run situation. It’s here where NFL coaches are consistently missing an opportunity to pass, particularly against defenses that have stacked the box or are playing at least seven defenders close to the line of scrimmage. I’m calling these situations FANS — First (down) Against Neutral or Stacked (boxes). FANS includes plays in which the defense brings extra men close to the line of scrimmage, clogging running lanes and daring the offense to run the ball. I analyzed plays from the 2017 season using men-in-the-box data from analytics firm Sports Info Solutions and play-level data courtesy of Ron Yurko, a Ph.D. student in statistics at Carnegie Mellon University. To more accurately represent regular game play and eliminate noise, I limited the sample to snaps outside the red zone when the opposing teams were within 7 points of each other.With seven to nine men near the line of scrimmage and the subsequent dearth of extra defenders in the secondary, we’d expect passing to be effective in these situations. That’s just what we found. Last season, 30 of 32 teams were more successful passing than running on FANS as measured by success rate.2Success rate is the share of plays with positive expected points added. EPA accounts for negative potential outcomes of a dropback, including sacks, interceptions and incompletions. The EPA model used here is by Ron Yurko, Sam Ventura and Max Horowitz. And passing wasn’t just a little more successful than running. The difference in passing success was large: 27 teams had a success rate that was at least 10 percentage points higher when passing on FANS than running; 14 teams were more than 20 points better. The league average difference of 19.3 leaned wildly toward passing. Washington-0.2224+0.2854+30 N.Y. Giants58334257 San Francisco55324550 Broncos-0.1625+0.1552+27 Dallas1127030 Detroit60224040 The average rushing success rate on second-and-long for the league is just 27 percent verses 46 percent for passing, a massive difference. The average of 18.7 percentage points in pass-run differential is only slightly lower than the 19.3 percentage points on first down. And this is despite teams passing 11 percentage points more often than on first down.If we combine the two down-and-distance situations, a clear picture emerges showing the NFL’s reluctance to actually pass when the situation warrants it.

Doug Pederson and the Eagles broke from the flock and dropped back to pass the ball 55 percent of the time — which was in some ways part of a larger strategy to break from convention. “A lot of NFL coaches have traditionally been averse to taking risks,” Pederson writes in his new book, “Fearless.” This desire to zig when the other teams were zagging showed up in Philadelphia’s fourth-down conversion attempts and two-point tries — two darlings of the statistical community.What about other more traditional passing downs? Second-and-long certainly qualifies. The league still runs as much as they pass on that down and distance, with just four teams boasting a higher success rate rushing than passing.

Chargers57294353 Jacksonville62293846 Baltimore915743 Oakland-0.3421+0.0343+22 The choices made on early downs are meaningful. The Oakland Raiders won six games in 2017 while leading the league in share of rushing on first- and second-and-long against a crowded box, at 69 percent of the time. If the Raiders had instead passed on 60 percent of those occasions, they would have seen a swing of 19.5 expected points, good for about half a win.Sometimes gains from passing aren’t absolute gains. Poor offensive teams can benefit from passing even if only to mitigate against the greater loss from running the ball. Last year, the Tennessee Titans employed a run-first, smash-mouth offensive strategy that saw them rush in these FANS situations 61 percent of the time. Both running and passing plays were losing propositions for them, but passing was still the least worst option. Had they flipped the script and passed 61 percent of the time, the Titans would have saved themselves 7 expected points, good for about a fifth of a win.Thursday night, the Atlanta Falcons kick off the NFL season against the Eagles in an NFC divisional round rematch. Last season, Atlanta was successful on a league-leading 63 percent of passing plays on first-and-10 and second-and-long against neutral or stacked boxes. The Falcons also led the league in pass-run success differential at 34 percentage points. Inexplicably, they ran the ball more than half the time. Had the Falcons passed at a level commensurate with their success rate, they would have earned 35.9 more expected points over the course of the year, good for an additional win.Like most of the rest of the NFL, Atlanta can improve its chances greatly by taking a page from the Eagles. On Thursday, we’ll see if they learned from their adversary this offseason. In the league that struggles to embrace change, it’s no sure thing.Check out our latest NFL predictions. read more

Costa Rica high court prison officials must address cruel and degrading conditions

The dormitory was designed to hold 20 prisoners but currently holds 47.According to a statement from Sala IV, prisoners “are sleeping on pieces of mattresses or on the ground, putting up with the cold” and rats climbing out of the drains at night.The court ordered prison system director Reynaldo Villalobos Zúñiga and Mariano Barrantes Angulo, director of the San José facility, to take steps to mitigate the overcrowding in the prison within one month.Last month the Ombudsman’s Office decried overcrowding across Costa Rica’s penitentiary system, which has ballooned to 53 percent of capacity, according to figures from the Ministry of Justice and Peace.The ministry issued a statement outlining its attempts to curb the problem, but San Sebastián prison was not among the facilities listed where additional cells have been built. Justice authorities claimed that a lack of funding between 2007 and 2009 has had compounding effects on their ability to build new facilities at the same time that courts sent more people to prison.There were 1,266 prisoners housed at San Sebastián as of June 26, according to the Ministry of Justice and Peace.The embattled ministry was under new management as of Tuesday when President Luis Guillermo Solís named María Cecilia Sánchez to replace Cristina Ramírez as Justice Minister.
