Her reign has been marred by disputes with rival members as well as a power struggle that has been a permanent fixture since 2014 and one that got worse following the surprise postponement of the FA’s Congress in Makeni in 2015.After almost a year of the new intervention from FIFA, a mediation team from the association has unveiled numerous recommendations, after concluding its findings on Friday, so as to put an end to the ongoing crisis.In a communique made known by the task force, that includes the Minister of Sports Ahmed Khanou, the Chairman Taskforce Musa Bility, SLFA’s representative Drucil Taylor and Fifa Director of member Associations Veron Mosengo-Omba, the following decisions were reached:The SLFA should adopt the FIFA code of ethics, with FIFA supporting this process.The members of the judicial bodies elected on the 23rd March 2017 should undergo integrity checks conducted by FIFA as defined by FIFA Ethics Committee.An extraordinary congress to be held with two items to be discussed on the agenda (A) to adopt the new SLFA Code of Ethics (Based on FIFA code of Ethics), (B) to revise the SLFA statutes and include integrity checks requirements for potential candidates.Following the Extraordinary Congress, the SLFA shall organise Ordinary Congress in order to select their Electoral Board in preparation for the SLFA elections and to present any relevant statutory reports.

While waiting for Saturday: BiH vs. Belgium, the Memory on the first Duel 47 years ago

first_imgOn Saturday, at 6 PM, the National football team of BiH will play a decisive match in the qualifications for the World Cup in Russia. The opponent is the National team of Belgium who already won the finals in the World Cup.Fans of football in BiH are familiar with matches that our national team and Belgium played, but club duels were a lot more common. Considering the period of the former Yugoslavia, clubs from BiH and Belgium played seven duels (not counting Intertoto Cup).It is interesting to recall the first BiH-Belgium match that was played 47 years ago.Then, in the first round of the Cup of Fair Cities (the forerunner of the UEFA Cup) played Zeljeznicar and Anderlecht. The first match was played at Kosevo Stadium on September 2, 1970, in front of about 5,000 spectators, and it was much more than dramatic.Our team played in the composition: Radovic, Becirspahic, Bratic, Hrvat, Katalinski, Kadric, Spreco, Osim, Bukal, Mujkic and Bajic (Jankovic). In the 4th minute, Ivica scored against the goalkeeper Anderlecht Colasse, but Wilfried Puis scored as well before the break.In the continuation of the match, a real drama happened. Three goals were scored in three minutes: 2: 1 Spreco (58); 3: 1 Mujkic (59); 3: 2 Mulder (60). Wilfried Puis (82) and Reserve Gilbert Van Bimst (89) made a turn for the win of Anderlecht with 3: 4 in the last 10 minutes.The match in Brussels did not need the extra time because Swedish player Inge Ejderstedt scored two goals for the victory of Anderlecht 5: 4 and the total score 9: 7!(Source: Radiosarajevo.ba)last_img read more


Panel seeks decentralized L.A. Unified

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Meanwhile, United Teachers Los Angeles has scheduled informational pickets today as part of its effort to gain more resources and control at the school level. The demonstrations coincide with the start of contract negotiations. “We’re going to be doing informational leafletting and talking to parents about our contract demands and our plans for working with the community,” UTLA President A.J. Duffy said. “We’re going to be stepping up our attacks on the bureaucracy. We’re going to push very hard and these informational leaflettings are our opening statement to the district that we are serious and we need them to come to the table with all seriousness.” In April, UTLA proposed reforming the 727,000-student school district by eliminating the eight local districts and replacing them with six regional resource centers that would have no decision-making authority. Most personnel from district headquarters and local districts would be moved into school sites, Duffy said. UTLA also pushed for increasing the seven-member school board by two and making the positions full time.

A commission analyzing Los Angeles Unified’s governance structure voted Thursday on ways to decentralize the behemoth district, while the teachers union ratcheted up its own push for greater school-site autonomy. The Joint Commission on LAUSD Governance was created in April 2005 by the presidents of the City Council and the school board to recommend whether the structure of the nation’s second-largest school district should be altered and how. The panel decided, for instance, that budgets and lesson plans should be handled by individual schools, while the district’s central administration should oversee transportation and school charter issues. “What they’re saying is decentralization will empower the local school to better serve students,” said Bill Mabie, spokesman for Councilman Alex Padilla, who co-founded the commission. “The idea is that if there’s more empowerment at the school level it also empowers parents because there are people who are accountable right there at the school site.” last_img read more
