27 Complete CAF License C Course

first_imgTwenty seven License D soccer coaches last Tuesday completed CAF License C and received certificates of participation, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.CAF Coaching Instructors Francis A. Tamba and Henry Brown prepared and tested the twenty seven coaches to accumulate 120hours training time and 40hours examination time. The original number was 28 but one coach did not complete the course. The course began on April 20 to May 14, 2014.Apart from the examination, the coaches each made oral presentations, and made theoretical and practical presentation of team preparation, as well as information on team and players’ psychology.After the 120hours preparation, CAF mandated two of their newly promoted Elite Coaching Instructors and Assessors, meaning Tamba and Brown to carry out the examination.Previously or before the two men were promoted, the examination part had always been done by CAF Elite Instructors and Assessors from Ghana and Nigeria.Though there was lacked of materials and financial support from the Liberia Football Association, the twenty seven coaches remained focus and kept at the training.The two CAF Instructors said the test results would be sent to CAF in Cairo, Egypt and after further examination of the performances of the coaches, CAF would then determine how many of the participants deserve CAF License C.“Don’t go about announcing that you are now a License C holder,” Tamba told the participants, “but while waiting for the results of your participation use your knowledge to develop football in your community.”Brown said practical commitment to succeed is essential, “to make you stand out among the crowd and work with the LFA to ensure that the fundamental information about the sports is taught to players under your control.” LFA Secretary General B. Alphonso Armah expressed the association’s appreciation for the commitment shown by the coaches and assured them of its support.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

 

Blatter says ‘new facts’ encourage him to fight ban

first_img0Shares0000Sepp Blatter the former FIFA President, has indicated he might fight his ban in court © AFP/File / SEBASTIAN DERUNGSPARIS, France, Feb 2 – Sepp Blatter indicated Thursday that he plans to take on FIFA, the global football body he used to run but which has now banned him.“As new facts have appeared it’s time to question the decision of the Fifa Ethics-Committee – my suspension of 6 years!” Blatter tweeted, adding hashtags for FIFA, for the Court of Arbitration in Sport, for the World Cup and for his successor as FIFA president, Gianni Infantino. Blatter also sent out a press release saying: “My aim is to look into the decision of FIFA’s Ethic-Committee in view of informations, and even evidences that I have received, in the meantime, in connection with my suspension.”“We are working on this case – and looking forward for development,” he said in his statement, which added: “For the time being there is no legal action.”Blatter, 81, resigned as president of FIFA in 2015 after 17 years in the job.At the end of that year, following an investigation into a payment of 2 million Swiss Francs (1.8 million euros) to his former ally Michel Platini, FIFA banned Blatter from football for eight years, but later reduced the sentence to six years after he appealed. CAS then rejected Blatter’s attempt to have the shorter ban overturned.Blatter’s suspension will not stop him attending the World Cup in Russia this summer at the invitation of Russian president Vladimir PutinBlatter, who is Swiss, has not yet followed the lead of Platini and tried the civil courts. The Frenchman attempted to fight his own four-year suspension in the Swiss courts. After that failed Platini said, earlier this week, that he would try the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

7 Readers Win Tickets to the ReadWriteWeb Real-Time Web Summit

first_imgRelated Posts “What I’ve seen through collective use/following of a hashtag or sharing in an experience together through a chat room and/or live video stream is testimony to the fact that experiences shared in groups, in the moment, have significantly more impact than reading a recap and posting a comment after the fact. Immersion in the ‘now’ is quite powerful…” Georgy…And some looked on the disruptive nature of new technologies.“My suspicions about social networks is that they won’t last for much longer. In the long term they constitute an emotional immaturity that won’t benefit us in the long run – people eventually get tired of privacy issues and the neediness that inspires when you go an hour without friendship affirmations.

Computationally intensive activities like natural language processing can be used on these focused streams of small-format data to reveal insights into the web that were previously impossible. That’s what our company does and something we’re keen to discuss.” Bill Fischer Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… “… What’s the next generation of the real-time web look like when it no longer has to deal with the constraints of last generation broadband? What else can we do now that we have a network that essentially serves as a communitywide LAN? A network where capacity is nearly limitless? A network where latency is near zero?… So how do we now take advantage of this new capacity to create a new class of real-time web experiences?” Geoff DailyCommenters also explored the definition of the real-time Web and its impact on user experiences.“Web 3.0 has three core nuances: one it’s everywhere, literally everywhere, it’s always up to date, it goes out if it’s way to allow and foster creative contribution and collaboration. This natural progression is apparent; first there were consumers, then there were users, now we are entering the realm of CO-CREATORS!” Evan Schoepkelast_img read more

Sources: Blatche reluctant to join Gilas in Lebanon Fiba Asia

first_imgAn obvious reason for Blatche’s reluctance, according to one of the sources, is the peace and order situation in Beirut, the Lebanese capital where the games will be held.Reigning three-time MVP June Mar Fajardo of San Miguel Beer, Japeth Aguilar of Barangay Ginebra, Alaska’s Calvin Abueva, Terrence Romeo of GlobalPort and TNT KaTropa’s Jayson Castro are considered shoo-ins for the Asian Championship squad.The PBA had agreed a few days ago to go “all in” for Gilas as Reyes now has a free hand to assemble the best team possible in a tournament where Australia and New Zealand will play in for the first time after Fiba had merged the Asia and Oceania regions.Meanwhile, Reyes and the rest of the Gilas team that finished fourth in the Jones Cup in Taipei planed in home on Monday morning and the coach is set to have a meeting with the SBP leadership and his assistant coaches to be able to finalize the lineup.As of now, Fiba already has a 24-man list – Blatche and Standhardinger included – forwarded by the SBP a few weeks back, and from there, Gilas’ final roster will come.ADVERTISEMENT Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games Andray Blatche.
