The working group made the following recommendations to the Bureau:On the international men’s match calendar-To postpone all international matches to be played during the next window in June 2020.-Organize bilateral discussions with the confederations on the qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to finalize a revised match schedule pending health and safety developments.On the international women’s match schedule:-To postpone all international matches to be played during the next window in June 2020.-Include the new dates for the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in the international calendar of women’s matches.-Create a working subgroup in the schedule of women’s international matches to consider possible changes to the schedule and dates of the postponed FIFA final tournaments.Regarding FIFA competitions:-Post the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Panama / Costa Rica 2020 – originally scheduled for August / September 2020 – and the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup India 2020 – originally scheduled for November 2020. They will be identified new dates.-Agree that a decision on the 2020 FIFA Futsal World Cup Lithuania, scheduled for September 2020, will be made in late April 2020, and dates for a possible postponement will already be considered.About the postponed Men’s Olympic Football Tournament (preliminary and final tournament competitions):-Maintain the originally planned eligibility criteria (players born on or after 01.01.1997 and three additional players).Regarding the regulatory affairs of football:-Support the work of the FIFA-led working group on transfer issues (comprised of all key football players: confederations, member associations, leagues, clubs and players) so that the guidelines and recommendations are published as soon as possible.Creation of a global support fund for football:-Design a person per confederation to coordinate on this issue together with FIFA, with the working group informed of developments.-The FIFA-Confederations working group will continue to hold regular discussions as the situation evolves. The Tokyo Games will finally be held from July 23 to August 8, 2021, after its postponement was decided due to the coronavirus health crisis on the 24th. This postponement opened an unknown question in football, the only sport with limits. old. Of the 18 players called up by each team, 15 must have been under-23 (the other three have no age limit). That is to say, in this 2020 the players should have been born from the year 1997. The question was whether this postponement of the Games would also imply an increase of one year in age. Well, FIFA has solved it this Friday. The world’s top soccer body, in a statement, has confirmed that the men’s teams at the 2020-21 Tokyo Olympics will be U-24 (plus the three ‘veterans’ allowed). Thus, in Spain those who qualified for the National Team will be able to play in Tokyo 2021.FIFA thus hears the voices that many federations raised when the Games were postponed. Like the one of the Spanish Federation or the Australian one. “I hope that FIFA and IOC change the rule so that the players who have qualified for the Olympic Games can fulfill their dream,” said Graham Arnold, Australia coach.So, in the case of the Spanish National Team, players like Vallejo, Oyarzabal, Mayoral or Soler, who seemed to be out of the Olympic event due to the postponement, have received this Friday the great news that they will be able to enjoy if they are selected for some Games for those who got the ticket. They are joined by footballers such as Grabriel Jesus, Lautaro Martínez and Dembélé.In addition, FIFA officially announced that it postponed all international matches that were to be played during the next window of June 2020 and also that it postponed, without a definite date, the U-20 and U-17 women’s World Cups that should have been played in August and November of this year, respectively.This is the FIFA statementThe FIFA-Confederations working group, recently created by the FIFA Council Bureau to address the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, and which includes the FIFA administration and the secretaries-general and senior executives of all confederations, unanimously approved a series of recommendations after their first meeting, which was arranged by conference call today.FIFA wishes to acknowledge the positive contributions and cooperation of all the representatives of the confederations and to highlight the spirit of unity, solidarity and mutual understanding that culminated in the adoption of these decisions. FIFA also reiterates that health must always be the first priority and the main criterion in any decision-making process, especially in these difficult times.

It is a glaring fact that youth unemployment is one of the major concerns facing both developed and developing countries. The youthful population of the world is at 1.2 billion according to statistic from the International Labor Organization (ILO). Youth makes up 43.7% of the total unemployed, even though they account for only 25% of the world’s working population. 77.7 million youths between the ages of 15 to 24 are unable to find work. African countries are the most vulnerable, showing the highest rate of youth unemployment 🙁 Zimbabwe: 95%, Mozambique: 60%, Namibia 51.2%). The global youth labor force grew from 602 to 633 million by 5.2% between 1995 and 2005 and is projected to grow by another 24 million to 657 million in 2015.Liberia’s total population is nearly 4 million. Out of this total, 1.13 million is the labor force of the country, and only 195,000 people are in paid employment. According to ILO 70% of Liberia’s population is under the age of 30.Thus there are an increasing number of young people who after the prolonged civil crisis are engaged in commercial motorcycling across the country for living. This number of youth, though not all when encouraged for agriculture ventures could provide employment opportunities and in fact boost the nation’s continuous strive for its food security program.Moreover, it is indicated that the farming population, which comprised mostly women is rapidly aging. Most local subsistence farmers are of age 50. This calls for a serious fight toward the revamping of the agriculture sector to improve agricultural production, which requires a strategy from government and partners to attract the young people.But what are many youths not into agriculture? A survey conducted by FAO revealed that the youths have the mindset that agriculture is not a worthy venture in Liberia.“Many young men and women are not willing to work in the agriculture sector because they see it as a non-profitable business and a very hard work which lacks respect”, a young man in Monrovia once told me.Experience suggests that in developing countries like Liberia, with enough resources and the creation of national policies as well as support from the international community agriculture can become a strong and income generating sector, probably one of the most important. In a country like ours where more than 60% of people depend on agriculture and where more than 50% of the food is imported, youths’ involvement into agriculture should be a must for the government.The question that than arises is that how can Liberia advocate youth into agriculture.FAO’s attemptConsidering that the youth must be encouraged to engage into agriculture for poverty reduction, FAO has developed a strategy to convinced young people to understand the vitality of agriculture, especially now.They have incorporated youth as sensitive population in all of FAO’s programs. This means that for all of the projects that FAO carry out in the country, youth will play a significant role.GOL’s pitfallsIn as much as the Government of Liberia has recognized for the past 10 years that agriculture is the center of the poverty reduction strategy, there has not being a well-organized program to attract young people into agriculture.In 2008, the Liberian government through the help of the British government saw the need to recruit youth for agriculture training.The Tumutu facility, which comprises of school building, dormitories and staff quarters was constructed by the British government.This training commenced in Tumutu, Salala District, Lower Bong County, where over 300 young people were recruited across the country as the first trainees. Majority of the recruits were former ex-combatants from Gutrie Plantation, which is now the company site of Sime Darby.This program ran for almost 3 years with close to one thousand youths acquiring skills in agriculture. However, it did not succeed much as there were no sustainable measures put into place to ensure that the trainees get continue supports from government.Many young people found it difficult to continue their farming ventures afterward.SolutionsFor the government and partners to succeed in advocating youth intentions for agriculture there should be a vigorous media campaign to change the mindset of the young people.The government must put in more funding for training to develop the skills of the youths.Additionally, with an organized program there must be serious attention given to the creation of market for the young farmers to market their produce. Some youths in Crozierville, Montserrado County who spoke to this paper, sometimes ago have called on government to provide them support in their various garden projects.They disclosed their completion of month training in vegetable production and animal husbandry.According to them since the completion of the training, they have not gotten any support from the Ministry of Agriculture.The Crozierville agriculture training was an initiative of Mr. Kenneth Y. Best, Publisher of the Daily Observer Newspaper. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is set to commence a debate on what the Party deems as the A Partnership for National Unity’s (APNU) “militarisation of the State”, an issue the Opposition has been expressing concern over since the new Administration took office.Former Presidents Donald Ramotar and Bharrat Jagdeo, who is also the current Opposition Leader; PPP’s General Secretary Clement Rohee; former Cabinet Secretary under the PPP Government, Dr Roger Luncheon; former Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall; and political and economic commentator Ramon Gaskins have been listed as the panelists.The discussion will be held today at the Sleepin Hotel on Brickdam, Georgetown.Recently, PPP’s General Secretary Clement Rohee said the Party continues to have growing concerns over the “militarisation” of the State and Government apparatus in Guyana by the coalition Administration.“This tendency is increasingly manifesting itself under the Granger Administration, coupled with this development, is the steady but rapid progression of our country in the direction of a “Police State”. This dangerous and unwelcomed development has its historical antecedents in the Burnham era of which Mr Granger is a product,” Rohee had said.He pointed out that what the “pro-militaristic administration” has done by virtue of this practice is to demonstrate its distrust for civilians who are qualified to perform such functions in contradistinction to military personnel. Also by moving in this direction, it seems Government has “outfoxed” the Alliance for Change (AFC), he said, by placing its military confederates in key and critical positions knowing that the AFC would be more inclined to nominate civilians to the said positions which, he asserted, the APNU has absolutely no interest in doing.“The PPP is of the view that the rise of the APNU/AFC sponsored Police State will inexorably result in the decline of freedom in Guyanese. Under the PPP/C, Guyanese abided by the rule of law and successive PPP/C Administrations were held accountable for their actions,” said the PPP/C General Secretary, adding that since the election of President Ganger and his coalition in May 2015, several retired Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Officers have been appointed in key advisory positions within the Government.Additionally, a number of soldiers have been seconded to work in the Defence Secretariat at the Ministry of the Presidency, where they are required to wear their uniforms. The Ministry of the Presidency recently announced that Colonel Nazrul Hussain would head the Department of National Events, after a series of bungled arrangements for Guyana’s 50th Independence Anniversary. A number of Army officers have also been appointed to a number of State Boards and other civilian positions.The PPP’s concerns were renewed last week after two Army officers were recently appointed to head two Commissions of Inquiries.However, while the Opposition is bent on this stance, President David Granger, himself a retired Army Chief-of-Staff, defended his Administration’s appointments of the military men to the high profile positions.“These are human beings, these are people with skills, you know. They are not a separate breed of citizens, we can’t deprive them of their rights if they have the talent, the experience, the qualifications,” the President said at a recent forum.He said his Administration is facing the brunt of criticism on militarisation when the mass appointments of Army officers to senior Government positions began under the Bharrat Jagdeo and Donald Ramotar led Administrations.In fact, he disclosed that when he took office in May 2015, there were about 10 Army officers who were appointed under the PPP/C Administration.The President even listed several of those persons including Major General Joe Singh and Colonel Chabulall Ramsaroop, among others.Moreover, Granger went on to say that he will not overlook qualified Army officers because of their association with the military. “I don’t discriminate against them and obviously Mr Jagdeo and Mr Ramotar didn’t discriminate against them because I inherited a large number of former military officers who have been appointed by the PPP Administration,” he stated.
A total of 115 Police officers were recently authorised to use breath analysing instruments, otherwise known as breathalysers – devices used for estimating blood alcohol content.Guyana Times understands that only authorised officers are allowed to conduct these tests on civilians who are suspected to be driving under the influence of alcohol.The names of these cops were published in the Official Gazette on May 25, 2019, and Traffic Chief Linden Isles is among them.The Gazette states, “In exercise of the powers conferred upon him by Section 39C (10) of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic (Amendment) Act, Chapter 51:02 of the Laws of Guyana, the Honourable Vice President and Minister of Public Security has authorised the following officers and ranks of the Guyana Police Force as analysts to operate breath analysing instruments.”Persons can be charged for drunk driving if, when tested, their blood alcohol content is found to exceed the prescribed limit of 35 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, and their blood alcohol concentration exceeds 80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.

“It’s going to be a very tough decision, but we feel like we can’t go wrong,” Little said. Players return: Shortstop Rafael Furcal, who has been battling a sore right shoulder, will play today against Detroit, his first action since March 1. Furcal will start at shortstop and probably stay in long enough to get two plate appearances. “He has been doing very well the last couple of days, and he is still champing at the bit to get in there,” Little said. “He isn’t the kind of player you can tell to restrict his activities. He plays hard all the time. That is one of the reasons we held him back.” Utility man Marlon Anderson, who hasn’t played all spring because of lingering problems in his surgically repaired right elbow, will make his debut on Thursday night against Washington. Meanwhile, outfielder Jason Repko continued to show improvement in his right groin, which he strained running for a ball on Saturday against Florida. “There is still no time frame (for Repko’s return),” Little said. “But the outlook is more optimistic than it was … when it happened.” Also: Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti left camp to attend the funeral of one of his closest friends, longtime Philadelphia Phillies coach John Vukovich, who died Thursday of complications from a brain tumor at age 59. Colletti met Vukovich when the two were employed by the Chicago Cubs in the early 1980s. Services are scheduled for today in Philadelphia. … The Dodgers will take their only day off Wednesday, but left-hander Randy Wolf will pitch in a minor-league intrasquad game to stay on his normal rotation. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Dodgers manager Grady Little said Monday that the competition for the vacant fifth spot in the team’s starting rotation – a battle that has only intensified through the first two weeks of Grapefruit League play – might not be settled until after the regular season begins. Meanwhile, although no one will admit it publicly, left-hander Hong-Chih Kuo appears to be slightly ahead of the pack, primarily because he is the one candidate club officials are least comfortable using as a reliever. Little spoke after he watched Brett Tomko and Joe Mays throw three one-hit innings apiece in a 4-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles before 4,579 at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. Little also watched Kuo pitch two hitless innings on Sunday against Washington and missed a performance by Mark Hendrickson in a Saturday split-squad game in which the veteran lefty turned in three one-hit innings of his own. And now, given the fact the Dodgers don’t have to have a fifth starter until April 10 because of off days, the competition might continue from the bullpen beyond Opening Day. “It’s possible,” Little said. “We have a number of people stretched out and in a position to take on that spot. It could still be a while before we make that decision.” Prolonging the matter would be bad for Mays, a non-roster invitee who probably isn’t a candidate for the bullpen unless a reliever is traded or released. But everyone else – Kuo, Tomko, Chad Billingsley and Mark Hendrickson – is expected to pitch out of the bullpen if not the rotation, allowing the battle to wage on. “I think competition is always good,” Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said. “This is certainly a nice battle, and I think the team will ultimately be better for it. Pitching becomes contagious, just like hitting can be contagious. I think each guy is showing a good side of himself, which is great. They know what the situation is, and they came in prepared.” Mays has a solid 2.57 ERA, but he struggled Thursday night against Florida and probably is at a distinct disadvantage because the other four competitors all are on the 40-man roster. Tomko hadn’t given up a run all spring until a first-inning leadoff walk to Freddie Bynum led to a manufactured run for the Orioles, but he still has a 1.29ERA. Kuo, meanwhile, has a 1.50ERA through three appearances and has allowed two hits in six innings, but he also has walked six batters. Hendrickson, who struggled mightily before finding himself against the Marlins, has an 8.10 ERA.
