​600 homebuyers join hands, bid for completing a part of Jaypee project

Finance
NEW DELHI: Among the 20-odd bidders for insolvency-hit Jaypee Infratech’s housing, hospital and road projects, including some top names from India Inc, there is an entity with no experience of construction and probably no documents to show its net worth -- a group of flat buyers from Kasa Isles who are pitching to take over some of the apartment blocks and construct it themselves. Over 600 buyers from the 16 towers of the project in Noida’s Sector 129 have come together under the umbrella of Kasa Isles Welfare Association and submitted their proposal to the resolution professional appointed by the National Company Law Tribunal. Now, they have approached the insolvency resolution professional with a formal offer. Aman Behal, a core committee member, said the association will need around

Ryan says health insurance mandate part of GOP tax talks

Health
House Speaker Paul Ryan said Republicans are discussing whether their tax plan should include a repeal of the Obama health law's requirement that people have insurance coverage or face a penalty, a step pushed by President Donald Trump but seen by some GOP lawmakers as possibly imperiling a much-needed legislative victory. It would be another shot at further undermining the Affordable Care Act after repeated failures by the GOP-led Congress to repeal and replace the law, as Trump has demanded and Republicans promised would happen after President Barack Obama left office and Republicans ran Washington.

Steve Jobs' sweet ride is part of high-end car auction

Technology
A sleek sports car once owned by Steve Jobs could sell for over $ 300,000 at a December auction — practically pocket change compared to some of the million-dollar vehicles that will be offered alongside it. The Apple founder's 2000 BMW Z8 convertible is among about 30 sets of hot wheels that will be offered by a variety of consignors at the Dec. 6 sale in Manhattan. Bidders at the fantasy-fueled RM Sotheby's auction might steer toward a handsomely earth-toned 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II by Pininfarina, which has a pre-sale estimate of about $ 1.5 million to $ 1.8 million. They'll also have the chance to peruse a white, "ultimate street-legal" 1995 Porsche 911 GT2, which has a pre-sale estimate of about $ 1.1 million to $ 1.4 million, and a red 1952 Chrysler D'Elegance by Ghia,

Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Experts on the Middle East, terrorism and the Islamic State say that while the terrorist organization is in a "death spiral," the U.S.-led coalition battling the group is likely entering its most dangerous phase.The early signs of victory are beginning to circulate as the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias, drive IS out of its proclaimed capital of Raqqa, Syria.IS fighters were contained Tuesday in a stadium complex in the city as they attempt to make a last stand effort in a battle campaign the SDF began in June with air support from the U.S.-led coalition and the Russian government."They are getting desperate," chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana W. White told reporters last week. "Civilians are running toward the Iraqi security fo...
