confident-looking Mumbai City FC in an Indian Super League game on Friday Delhi arein the middle of a horror run since their lone victory against FC Pune City in their season-opening away game on 22 November They have lost five games on the trot since then three of those at home and are currently lying at the bottom of the points table Delhi Dynamos will find it difficult to contain the in-form Balwant Singh ISL And come Friday Delhi would be eager to arrest the streak and add to their meagre point tally of three The hosts on the other hand had a hiccup in their last home game losing to ATK but then travelled to Guwahati to put it across NorthEast United FC They also have a chance to go to the number two slot on the table if they win at the Mumbai Football Arena Mumbai have won three out of seven games and drawn one and their tally of 10 has left them currently in the middle of the table but a victory over Delhi would pitchfork them higher Mumbai have had a mixed run so far and looked impregnable at home before ATK punctured it with a measured performance 10 days ago The hosts have a sound back four led by Romanian Lucian Goian and Brazilian Gerson Vieira backed up by the goal-stopping skills of Amrinder Singh who has emerged with two clean sheets as compared to none for the visitors an indication of what the visitors are up against Balwant Singh has been Mumbai’s most successful striker with four goals to his credit including a brace in the win in the previous away game against NorthEast United He has the backing of a good midfield led by Cameroon’s Achille Emana who himself has scored once so far in seven outings Two crafty midfielders Brazilians Thiago Santos and Everton Santos are the other players to have scored for Mumbai To bring more cheers is the fact that Sehnaj Singh is also back in contention to take the field after sitting out the last game due to four previous bookings Their Costa Rican coach Alexandre Guimaraes was happy over the team’s quick turnaround in Guwahati after the loss at home to ATK "I’m very satisfied because we improved our game in terms of playing a quality game We poached them (NEUFC) in the right moments" he declared after the victory Goalie Amrinder picked up a knock during the game but has recovered in the nine-day gap since then a further confidence-boost to their hopes Delhi on the other hand have very little to show for after notching up a 3-2 away win against Pune City FC more than a month ago They have been unable to score many goals in the opportunities they have got with captain Kalu Uche of Nigeria emerging the top scorer with two strikes to his credit Their midfield needs to be innovative to puncture holes in the strong Mumbai defence Another defeat would not only keep the visitors at the bottom of the table but also further dent their chances of making it to the playoffs By: AP | St Louis | Published: November 19 2016 5:41 pm Top News The NFL’s Rams are gone and attention in St Louis now turns to soccer with an ownership group pursuing a Major League Soccer expansion team The effort includes plans to build a $200 million stadium downtown that would require millions of dollars in public funding The ownership group revealed Thursday is known as SC STL Paul Edgerley a partner at the investment firm VantEdge Partners is lead owner and chairman Among his partners is Dave Peacock former president of Anheuser-Busch and a driving force behind the effort last year to build a $1 billion riverfront stadium for the Rams The football stadium plan died when the NFL in January approved Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s request to move the team to Los Angeles Since the departure of football efforts to secure an MLS team have escalated The MLS is already adding two new teams to expand to 24 by the end of the decade and eventually plans to add four more league spokesman Dan Courtemanche said St Louis is among eight markets that have publicly expressed interest in the four additional expansion slots Courtemanche said A timetable for when those cities would join the league has not been determined Commissioner Don Garber said in a statement that league officials have had “very productive” meetings with Edgerley and his partners “With its rich soccer heritage St Louis has always been a market of great interest to Major League Soccer and SC STL is the ideal ownership group that will provide St Louis the best opportunity for a future expansion team” Garber said The open-air stadium would have 20000 seats with the ability to expand to 28500 It would sit next to St Louis Union Station and encompass about 24 acres on land near Interstate 64 currently owned by the Missouri Department of Transportation The city has an option to buy the site but the value is still being appraised SC STL said it would fund “much” of the stadium construction cost but St Louis voters in April would be asked to fund a significant share up to $80 million according to the St Louis Post-Dispatch Specific details on the public portion are still being worked out but the spokesman for the ownership group Jim Woodcock said the stadium will only be built if the league approves a St Louis team Getting it on the ballot is no sure thing Though the NFL plan was eventually approved by city aldermen the debate was often contentious Alderman Sam Moore said at one meeting that some residents live in “Third World” conditions while taxpayers were paying for stadiums Messages left for Moore on Friday were not immediately returned The ownership group said it also will work with the state for financial assistance related to site development and infrastructure The stadium would be within about a mile of two other downtown sports venues — baseball’s Busch Stadium and the Scottrade

about espionage or leakage of information pertain more to military and strategic affairs (Source: PTI Photo) Related News Over the past month the Central Bureau of Investigation and Delhi Police have been conducting searches at government offices in Lutyens’ Delhi Their aim is to bust alleged attempts by certain corporates and their intermediaries to access classified documents and information in various government departments ranging from oil coal and power to commerce and finance The probes have led to arrests and the questioning of people including low-level government employees chartered accountants consultants as well as fairly senior corporate executives These men are said to have been part of insidious rackets to leak files and draft cabinet notes on policy matters relevant to the operations of the companies concerned The striking thing in all this is the names of some of the corporates involved — largely the same lot that operated in the pre-liberalisation era and built fortunes in the protected licence raj environment that was supposedly dismantled nearly 25 years ago This despite the significant “churn” within the ranks of top business houses in the post-reform period If one were to look at the 10 big names today only three (Tata Ambani and Birla) figured in the top 10 list of 1990 Of the remaining seven two featured in the top-50 names of 1990 (Essar and Mahindra) while five were either non-existent or insignificant players when the reforms started (Vedanta Adani Jindal Bharti and Infosys) Even if a larger top-50 ranking of groups by sales is considered as many as 33 names — covering a wide swathe of industries from pharma (Sun Pharma Lupin) IT (Wipro HCL) and media (Sun Network Zee) to auto ancilliaries/ forging (Motherson Sumi Kalyani) and infrastructure (GVK GMR Jaypee) — were not part of this league in 1990 It says a lot about the way business takes place in India that even after 25 years of liberalisation and the sizeable churn with the entry of new players and the growth of new industries success is still a function of groups arbitraging on privileged information influencing policymaking or “managing” the politico-bureaucratic environment And some groups particularly have been past masters in this practice refusing to change even with reforms that have ostensibly redefined business to mean genuine risk-taking and innovation rather than having the right connections to obtain licences or land contracts Of course it is not just slimy and venal corporates who are to blame here In advanced economies worries about espionage or leakage of information pertain more to military and strategic affairs nuclear programme secrets or cyber attacks Rarely do you read about the disappearance of confidential files on foreign investment proposals or hydrocarbon pricing policy What this essentially highlights is the reluctance of the state to let go of discretionary policymaking powers in key economic sectors including energy which is still partially de-regulated ensuring that the stakes remain high for some business groups There is a convergence of interests here between entrenched corporates and framers of policy to keep decision-making processes opaque In the process access to confidential information itself becomes a source of money-making and a way to keep rivals out The current government seems to be keen on sending out a message of being tough against those engaged in corporate espionage So now we have CCTV cameras installed in the corridors of all the bhawans along with close monitoring if not restriction of movements of visitors It has also sought to project a commitment to transparent decision-making when it comes to the allocation of coal or telecom spectrum — auctions have clearly replaced the old regime of screening committees and first-come-first-serve But the proposed land bill amendments allowing the government to acquire land for industry without being bound to seek the consent of at least a majority of owners is hardly a model of transparency If anything it reeks of the same old crony capitalism model encouraging state grabbing of land to favour select houses in the name of developing industrial corridors The answer to corporate espionage and the theft of documents from sundry government departments or ministries cannot just be heightened surveillance or electronic locks To start with many of the secret papers are of little consequence to national security; they have been rendered secret simply because of those who stand to gain by trading on what should ordinarily be publicly available information The world over policy or rule-making is increasingly the outcome of wide public consultations which is how it should be with liberalisation One has in fact seen this approach being adopted in India by financial sector regulators Many of their regulations — for instance on private bank licences or on insider trading and primary market reforms — were made after they received comments from stakeholders and the public on draft proposals As a result the adoption of the final policy produced hardly any surprise Such an approach which aims at the wide sharing of information and making secrecy exceptional would cut policy-discretion to suit particular groups and level the playing field for all The winners in this case would be those with genuinely superior business judgement or risk-taking ability instead of those used to gaming the system The government and many of its arms first need to be nudged to make this transition Almost 25 years after India first started divesting the shares of state-owned companies the pricing of a share sale still has to be top secret requiring cabinet approval In all other listed companies the board and management would take such calls Yes we need to punish those reaping benefits by indulging in corporate espionage and stealing classified documents And yes many corporates also need to make the transition if they are to remain relevant in years to come But it would also help if the government used the present circumstances to open up more rather than shutting the door [email

3-6 6-2 win against Viktoria Kuzmova (Source: Reuters) Related News Venus Williams celebrated her 20th anniversary at the US Open as the tournament celebrated 20 years of Arthur Ashe Stadium where she claimed two of her seven Grand Slam titles Williams was a 17-year-old upstart with beads in her hair when she rallied to defeat Latvia’s Larisa Neiland 5-7 6-0 6-1 in the first round of the 1997 US Open in her Flushing Meadows debut on her way to her first Grand Slam final which she lost to Martina Hingis “It has been 20 wonderful years” Williams told the crowd after a 6-3 3-6 6-2 first-round victory over Slovakian qualifier Viktoria Kuzmova “I’m not sure there are going to be 20 more” Since Williams became the first unseeded US Open women’s finalist since 1958 she has won the 2000 and 2001 US Opens and five Wimbledon crowns including her most recent Slam title in 2008 But this season at age 37 Williams has turned back the clock reaching the finals at Wimbledon and the Australia Open She lost to Spain’s Garbine Muguruza on the All England grass and to her pregnant sister Serena at Melbourne last January She reached Arthur Ashe Stadium having played in two Grand Slam finals in a year for the first time since 2003 marveling at the largest venue in tennis from her airplane window “It’s massive When I was flying in we flew right over it” Williams said “A certain excitement I get to play there It’s a privilege It’s an honor I take it quite seriously Everybody does” Asked what her career timetable might be the oldest woman in the US Open said “I don’t know We’ll see I have no plans Zero” Well she has one With 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena giving birth in the next few weeks Venus will become an aunt for the first time as an adult It’s one of the few adventures the sisters haven’t been able to fully share in their careers “It’s definitely a different experience especially for she and I because we spent our whole lives so focused on work” Venus said “So when you have an experience that is not work it’s pretty intense It’s a completely different experience for both of us” Tour life without Serena has Venus spending more time down Memory Lane than just a landmark night at Arthur Ashe Stadium “I definitely have adjusted at this point It takes time” Venus said “There are moments where you have very distinct memories of togetherness “I’ve been able to remember those and be fond or have some longing or happy memories all those feelings But the plan is hopefully that it won’t be forever” Until Serena is able to return as doubles partner and singles star something she has said her goal would be to do in time to defend her Australian Open title in 2018 Venus will have to settle for some coaching advice from afar “We always coach each other pretty much We know what it’s like to be out there” Venus said “It’s like I know I relate to her she relates to me I know exactly what it feels like It’s great to get advice from someone like that” specially when your game is making a return to star form like that of Venus “I feel like my game always rises a lot in the bigger events” she said “That’s what I feel like like I’ll be ready to play when push
