Upsets Shake Up College Football Landscape Irish To Be

Notre Dame will be the new No. 1 team in the nation.Kansas State and Oregon — the top two teams in the country going into Saturday’s action — both came tumbling down, while Notre Dame moved to 11-0 and certainly will elevate to the No. 1 program in the nation for the first time since 1993 when the new BCS poll is released on Monday.KSU and the Ducks had a clear path to the national championship game. All they had to do was win their remaining games. Didn’t happen.The Wildcats got blizted at Baylor, losing 52-24 in a straight up beat down. Glasco Martin had three touchdown runs and Lache Seastruck rushed for 185 yards, including a back-breaking 80-yard score, in the Bears’ thumping that all but ended Kansas State’s chance for the national title.“I don’t know if I would call it getting smacked in the mouth, but they took it to us,” coach Bill Snyder said. “I really thought we prepared well, but as we found out, we didn’t. I don’t think we handled the situation as well as we should have been able to.”So, No. 1 was there for Oregon to assume. And yet, the Ducks didn’t do quack. Playing at home against No. 17 Stanford, the Oregon high-powered offense was contained. The Ducks managed just two touchdowns in losing, 17-14, in overtime.It was Jordan Williamson’s a 37-yard field goal in overtime that won the game and denied the Ducks a chance to clinch the Pac-12 North — and, in the bigger picture, a shot at the BCS title.If both Stanford and Oregon win in their final games next weekend, both will finish with one conference loss, which means Stanford will win the head-to-head matchup and go to the Pac-12 championship for a chance to play in the Rose Bowl.Meanwhile, Notre Dame advanced to 11-0 by thrashing Wake Forest, 38-0. The Fighting Irish came into the weekend at No. 3 in the BCS poll. With Nos. 1 and 2 losing, it stands to reason they will jump to No. 1. It is like that the SEC will dominate the next three spots with Alabama at No. 2, Georgia No. 3 and Florida No. 4. read more

KMC looking to boost filtered water supply in Tollygunj Jadavpur

first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is taking a slew of measures for improving the supply of filtered water in Tollygunj and Jadavpur areas and at the same time, minimising the use of groundwater through big diameter tubewell.”Our emphasis will be to overhaul the supply of filtered water in parts of Tollygunj, Jadavpur and Garia, where the pressure of water is relatively low in comparison to other parts of the city. We have taken up several projects and most of them will be completed in a year,” said Mayor Firhad Hakim.

The capacity of Bansdroni Booster Pumping Station reservoir has been increased by an additional 1.2 million gallon by constructing a new reservoir. “We will soon complete laying of 1,000 mm diameter dedicated pipeline at Raja Rammohan Roy Road in Behala, to feed the new reservoir,” the official said.

A reservoir with additional capacity of 2 million gallon is being constructed inside the campus of Anandapur Booster Pumping Station to improve water supply in the adjacent areas. The Water Supply department has also taken up projects to reduce exploitation of groundwater with big diameter tubewells and to ensure supply of treated surface water. A booster pumping station of 3.2 million gallon capacity is coming up at Subhash Pally in ward 111, while another reservoir of 0.25 million capacity is being set up near the Japan Consulate office in ward 97. “Four small booster pumping stations with reservoir are being constructed at Panchannagram in ward 107, Kayasthapara in ward 106, Panchasayar in ward 109 and Achena Park in ward 101. We are hopeful of reducing groundwater extraction considerably once these projects are completed,” the official added. Some works have already been taken up in other parts of the city for minimising groundwater extraction that includes construction of an underground reservoir cum booster pumping station of 3 million gallon capacity at Shakuntala Park, which is expected to be completed by October 2019. Soon after taking over as the Mayor of Kolkata in December last year, Firhad Hakim has stressed upon stopping extraction of ground water totally in the city. He has already held a meeting with the state Water Resources Investigation department and will soon come out with a scientific action plan. Hakim, who placed the budget for the 2019-20 fiscal, has proposed an allocation of Rs 406.89 crore for development of water supply.last_img read more
