GFF’s 2016 Financial Statements reveal $45.7M unaccounted debts and income claims

first_imgTHE Guyana Football Federation (GFF) will have lots to answer at Saturday’s Extraordinary Congress, following the revelations of their Audited Financial Statements for the year ending December 31, 2016, which was done by Ram and McRae, Chartered Accountants, Professional Services Firm.In fact, the primary purpose of the congress is to present the audited statements for 2016 and for it to be approved by the Congress.Ram and McRae, upon completion of the Audit, could have offered only a ‘Qualified Opinion’, where it stated that in the ‘Basis for Qualified Opinion’, the GFF did not maintain adequate documentation of transactions with suppliers and consequently, Ram & McRae could not determine the accuracy, validity and completeness of accounts payable and accruals stated at $89,881,316 in the financial statements. Of this amount, a total of $48,320,142 was supported by third party confirmations and other audit evidence.“Additionally, adequate documentation for expenses paid during the year under review, totalling $2,319,499 was not provided during our test of controls,” Ram & McRae said in the basis for the qualified opinion.According to the findings of the Financial Audits, the GFF “did not maintain adequate documentation in respect of game and other income stated at $21,051,698 in the financial statements. Of this amount, a total $16,834,029 was supported by receipts and other audit evidence.”The GFF president Wayne Forde could not have been reached for a comment on the findings, while Chronicle Sport reached out to a number of the Federation’s affiliates.While some affiliated associations’ representatives refused to comment, stating that they will reserve their comments for Saturday’s congress, some spoke and asked to remain anonymous, out of fear of victimisation.One affiliate said at the Congress, the GFF will have to answer why wasn’t there any finance committee meeting for more than a year, up until recently, and why the audit and compliance committee hasn’t been constituted after two years in office.Chronicle Sport was informed that since August 26, the GFF Finance Committee, a constituted body, only met on November 23, 2017.In May, the GFF held a congress, but absent from the agenda was the Financial Report, and according to another affiliate, “the GFF has changed plenty Financial Controllers since Forde came in, so of course they’re going to be irregularities. It will be interesting to see how Mr Forde and others respond to this because they came in championing good governance and accountability.”Indeed, upon taking office following a period of being governed by the country’s first FIFA-installed Normalisation Committee, Forde said his presidency should be remembered by their transparency and proper management of the game.“When you have over $45M unaccounted for in the debts and claims of income, of course that’s enough to make you wonder where all the money went and who were these debts paid to,” another affiliate member said.last_img read more

Liverpool Roar Back to Demolish Stoke

first_imgA Giannelli Imbula own goal and a first Premier League goal of the season for Daniel Sturridge in the second half put the seal on a third straight victory for the Reds, who are still unbeaten at Anfield this season.The win allowed the Reds to move back to within six points of Premier League leaders Chelsea as they moved back above Manchester City, who they host at Anfield on New Year’s Eve. Without a win in four games, Stoke are 13th.Klopp stuck with the same team that had beaten Middlesbrough and Everton away in their last two outings as Simon Mignolet was again preferred to Loris Karius in goal.The Belgian had kept clean sheets in each of these games but he was beaten here inside 12 minutes as Stoke stunned the home fans.Erik Pieters was quicker onto a loose ball than either Sadio Mane or Nathaniel Clyne just outside the area and his cross from the left was met by Walters at the near post. Mignolet got a touch to his header but could not keep it out.Stoke were the last visiting team to win at Anfield when they beat Liverpool 1-0 in the League Cup semi-final, second leg, back in January — although they eventually lost on penalties that night.Their boss Mark Hughes had never won away to Liverpool as a manager in the Premier League but Stoke had their hosts on the ropes for a while after going in front.Back at Anfield for the first time since leaving Liverpool in the close season, Joe Allen engineered himself space in the box before seeing his shot saved by Mignolet as Stoke almost doubled their lead.There were groans coming from the Kop but Firmino lifted the home fans in the crowd of over 53 000 when his shot was blocked on the line by Peter Crouch and the equaliser then arrived after 34 minutes.Glen Johnson appeared to want to control the ball inside his own six-yard area and Lallana pounced to tuck a low shot from a tight angle between goalkeeper Lee Grant and the near post and in for his seventh goal of the season.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram EPLA fine finish by Roberto Firmino helped Liverpool to come roaring back from behind and beat Stoke City 4-1 as they reclaimed second place in the Premier League table yesterday.Jurgen Klopp’s side were rattled for a spell after Jonathan Walters headed Stoke into an early lead at Anfield, but Adam Lallana restored parity before Brazilian striker Firmino netted with a minute of the first half remaining.last_img read more

first_imgPhoto courtesy of Keck School of MedicineUSC Vice President of Advancement and Health Sciences Development David Carrera is no longer employed by the University as of last week, USC officials confirmed Wednesday.Gretchen Means, executive director of the Office of Equity and Diversity, said in a statement to the Daily Trojan that her office opened an investigation into Carrera after receiving complaints, during which he was put on administrative leave.The Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday that Carrera was being investigated for sexual harassment allegations.

Fast Reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 45-14 loss to Florida State

first_imgIn a game that was never really close, Syracuse (4-7, 2-5 Atlantic Coast) dropped its third straight to No. 17 Florida State, 45-14, on Saturday in the Carrier Dome. After forcing a punt on SU’s first drive, FSU scored in under five minutes to take a lead it would hold the rest of the way.Here are three quick reactions to the gameHello, goodbyeOn senior day, the Orange bid farewell to some of its players before the game. Somebody it didn’t want to see go was junior linebacker Zaire Franklin.That’s exactly what happened early in the second quarter, though. Franklin went down in pursuit of Seminoles running back Dalvin Cook and writhed around in pain, grabbing at what looked like his left leg. He needed help walking off the field, not putting much pressure on it. He later came back on to the sideline in a T-shirt and sweatpants, done for the day.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the Orange also welcomed some players back from injury. Wide receiver Steve Ishmael, who missed last week’s game against North Carolina State with an injury, came back in a limited role. Alvin Cornelius started the game in his place, but Ishmael got a few looks on the field. He was targeted only once.Cornerback Cordell Hudson, who last week came back to play on special teams, got snaps on defense, his first since the Wake Forest game back on Oct. 8. Earlier this week at his press conference, head coach Dino Babers said he was planning on working the redshirt sophomore back slowly.Silver liningThe Orange got beat down on Saturday, but the one bright spot was SU’s special teams.It looked bad at first, as punter Sterling Hofrichter had his first attempt tipped as it ended up traveling only 24 yards.But from then on out, Hofrichter was fantastic. He punted the ball eight more times for 376 yards, averaging 47 yards on those attempts. He had three of them called for fair catches. Five of them traveled more than 50 yards in the air and five downed inside the 20-yard line.Meanwhile, SU’s return game was strong, too. FSU punted the ball only twice, and both resulted in big returns from Brisly Estime. His first went for 42 yards, and after breaking multiple tackles to make it that far he was probably one away from reaching the end zone. His second went for 22 yards.Sean Riley also had a few decent performances returning kicks. While two of his four returns didn’t get back to the 20-yard line, he had two others that went for 28 and 36 yards.Brought downGoing into the game, SU was facing an uphill battle with the injuries on the offensive line. Donnie Foster, the third-string center, started after Colin Byrne, the second stringer, left last week’s game with an injury and was ruled out.Things were about as bad as they could get for Orange quarterback Zack Mahoney. He got sacked eight times on the afternoon, including four times in the first quarter. Four of the sacks came on third down.When Mahoney tried to escape the pressure, he was often left with little running room or he was forced to make poor, rushed throws, like when he lofted a ball in the air down the sideline that was picked off by defensive back Ermon Lane.

Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan sits out 2nd consecutive game with sprained ankle

first_imgWillie Reed started at center for the second game in place of Jordan.“D.J. means so much more to your team offensively than anybody gives him credit for,” Rivers said of Jordan. “He’s one of the better defensive players in the league and everybody keeps talking about defense and that’s fine, but he really does affect your offense a lot when he’s on the floor.”Jordan averaged a modest 11.8 points before he was sidelined, but his shooting percentage of 66.1 percent was the second-best in the NBA going into play around the league Monday. He averaged 14.9 rebounds, second-most in the league entering Monday.The Clippers didn’t miss Jordan’s size and athleticism during their victory Saturday over the Sacramento Kings, but they could have used him Monday against the Rockets’ Clint Capela.Jordan’s next game will tie him with Randy Smith for the most in Clippers history. He was to have passed Smith in conjunction with Paul’s Staples Center homecoming, his first game since he was granted his trade request and sent to the Houston Rockets for a package of players. LOS ANGELES — DeAndre Jordan sat out Monday for the second consecutive game because of a sprained left ankle suffered last Thursday, the first games he’s missed because of an injury during his 10-season, 714-game career, all of it spent with the Clippers.Coach Doc Rivers couldn’t say whether Jordan could play Wednesday. Jordan shot free throws during the pregame warmup, but didn’t do anything more taxing on his ankle as the early-arriving fans filtered into Staples Center.“My guess just watching him move around I can’t imagine him playing for a couple of days,” Rivers said when asked about Jordan’s status before the Clippers faced former teammate Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets. “I would be surprised if he played Wednesday, so let’s go with Friday.”Told the Clippers don’t play Friday, Rivers said, “OK, Saturday.” Smith played from 1971-78 with the Buffalo Braves and during the 1978-79 and 1982-83 seasons with the relocated San Diego Clippers. Jordan was the Clippers’ second-round pick (35th overall) in 2008. He missed games only for illness or to rest or by a coach’s decision until Saturday.CENTER SHORTAGERivers said he knows who to blame for the transition of the NBA from a big-man’s league to one dominated by point guards and slashing forwards. His name is Magic Johnson, and he had a direct impact on a generation (or two or three) of young players.“He came in and started dribbling and now everyone wants to be a guard,” Rivers said, laughing to indicate he was joking. “I think the league has always gone in cycles. There was a time when I was in Boston when we said, ‘Where are all the point guards?’“Now, we have way too many point guards in the NBA. Right now, I think the bigs are coming back. You can see it coming with some of the young guys who have come into the league. I think we’re coming into a nice stretch. I think they’re coming back.”INJURY UPDATESDanilo Gallinari sat out for the 32nd game because of a left gluteus maximus injury. Austin Rivers didn’t play for the eighth consecutive game because of an impingement in his right ankle. C.J. Williams was sidelined for the second game because of a sprained right ankle.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Chelsea, the first club to adapt training to the menstrual cycle

first_img“It is fair to say. I am a coach in an industry where women are treated like little men.” This phrase is from Emma Hayes, Chelsea coach, who has already revolutionized her industry. Hayes has developed a pioneering system in women’s football along with the collaboration of its staff and Dr. Georgie Bruinvels as explained by The Telegraph to see how the menstrual cycle affects their soccer players. Following a defeat in the 2016 FA Cup final against Arsenal, Hayes came up with the idea. The coach realized that a good part of the blue template was in full menstruation and considered it interesting to measure its effects. The coach decided to gauge the impact of the period on her players until get to develop an individualized training program regarding this factor and its consequences. Emma Hayes with Eva Woods, his assistant, urged the players to download FitrWoman, an application developed by Dr. Bruinvels, who also collaborated, so that athletes keep a daily record of their cycle. Thus, once the template agreed, the coach asked her players access to this data to be able to adjust the training according to the time of the period in which each player is and to know how menstruation affects each of them, and Even though There are symptoms considered generic, not all women have the same experience (different frequencies, more or less intense pain …). 28 days, different symptoms, different exercisesIn Telegraph, they have exposed a generic model in a graphic way where they explain how menstruation affects an athlete (regardless of each individual factor) and how you can adjust your training. In menstruation, they ensure that the reaction time decreases and that the likelihood of muscle injuries increases. To prevent damage, stretching, yoga and reaction work with low physical load. In addition, it also includes nutrition tips such as eating fish, an “anti-inflammatory food”In phase 2 (preoccupation, days 5-14), it is the moment when the players feel better but when the risk of muscle injury increases the most. The recommendation offered by the Hayes program is to avoid exercises with drastic speed changes.In the third phase, between ovulation and pre-menstruation (days 14-25), swelling increases and mood swings also begin. The model itself recommends care in the behavior of coaches and coaches so as not to generate conflicts. In addition, they stand out, it will be a phase where soccer players have cravings for less healthy food. To control them, they recommend a diet with more complex carbohydrates (pasta, potatoes, legumes).In phase 4, pre-menstruation, mood swings continue, reaction and coordination capacity decreases and muscle pain and recovery time increase. At this stage they recommend reaction exercises to try to keep the footballer as easy as possible. A way to avoid injuries that players likeControlling all these factors is helping to reduce the number of injuries since menstruation is an inflammatory process that increases the likelihood of damage to the muscles or ligaments.So, as Telegraph says, Chelsea is the only club in the English League that has not yet had a low casualty player for crusader injuries. Coach Hayes acknowledges that it helps but does not dare to say that a direct relationship can still be established between her method and the absence of this injury.According to Telegraph, This program has quite pleased the players of the blue set who consider it useful and offers them more security by having more information about what happens in these 28 days and how it affects their body. One less taboo in London.last_img read more
