“Kotoko may suffer transfer ban not demotion in Clottey transfer saga”- FIFA

first_imgIt turns out that Kumasi Asante Kotoko will not be facing any demotions in the Ghanaian football league structure despite their indiscretions in the transfer saga involving themselves, Emmanuel Clottey and Esperance of Tunisia.This was contained in the latest FIFA ruling on the matter. The ruling was given on the 9th of April, 2020 by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.It gave details of the case and the punishments handed to both Kotoko and Emmanuel Clottey but the FIFA document never mentioned a demotion of Kotoko to the lower divisions of Ghana football.The latest twist in the story is in sharp contrast in the local press that Kotoko were facing a possible demotion from the Ghana Premier League if they failed to pay Esperance.The Tunisian club had recently reported to FIFA that Kotoko were yet to pay them as per a ruling from 2015 and that was prompted to revisit the issue and hand out its latest decision.So what did the ruling say?The ruling stated that the both Kotoko and Emmanuel Clottey had fallen foul of laws governing the transfer of players especially when they were contractually bound to another team.Kotoko signed Clottey in 2015 when he had a valid contract with Esperance of Tunisia.Emmanuel ClotteyEsperance reported the matter to FIFA and in a decision given on June 11, 2015, the player was found guilty and was slapped with a decision to pay Esperance USD 180, 000 plus interest of 5 percent per annum.Since he was a Kotoko player at the time, FIFA asked Kotoko to ensure that Clottey paid the sum and the club would be held if he failed to do so.In addition, Clottey had to pay an additional fine of 1,000 Swiss Francs (USD 1,033) while Kotoko had to pay a fine of 15, 000 Swiss Francs (USD 15, 496)Both Kotoko and Clottey were ordered to pay their respective fines within 30 days of the April 9, 2020 decision.What if Kotoko do not pay the fine?According to the FIFA ruling of April 9, 2020, if Kotoko fail to pay Esperance by the deadline (within 30 days of the ruling), they will suffer:“a ban from registering new players, either nationally or internationally, will be imposed on Debtor II (that is how Kotoko is referred to in the case Emmanuel Clottey is Debtor 1). Once the deadline has expired, the transfer ban will be implemented automatically at national and international level by the Ghana Football Association and FIFA respectively… “What happens now?Kotoko and Emmanuel Clottey were ordered by FIFA to pay the money to Esperance and provide adequate proof of payment to the Ghana FA and the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.last_img read more

Viral outlet challenge on TikToc causing fire hazards

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisTeens are getting quite risky with a viral video challenge sparking interest on the app TikToc.Teenagers from a high school in Massachusetts have taken part in the outlet challenge. It consists of partially inserting a cell phone charger into an electrical outlet, and then sliding a penny down the wall to the exposed prongs. We spoke to City of Alpena Fire Chief Bill Forbush about the social media trend. He says nothing good can come from doing this.“Metal is an excellent conductor, copper is a super conductor and that’s certainly a possibility of being a burn or receiving an electrical shock, and even a very small electrical shock at 110 volts in some cases [will] throw their heart into an arrhythmia, and even kill people.”It can also cause damage to wiring, and ignite full–out fires. The National Fire Protection Agency’s Vice President of Outreach says she hopes to communicate how dangerous this truly is. Chief Forbush agrees, and he has one simple message regarding the challenge.“Please don’t. Although I think many kids have done that, I think I might even remember doing it myself at one point. It is not a good idea. Please don’t.”AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena woman sentenced 10-20 years for sexually assaulting her sonNext Alpena man arrested in connection with 2018 overdoselast_img read more

Teens had much different Oakland experience than Clippers

first_imgThanks to the Verizon Foundation and the LA Clippers Foundation, young men like Caleb Clouden got to experience a week of firsts.“It’s like the most exciting thing ever,” he said, his voice exactly matching those words.There was the first plane ride — a Southwest flight from Los Angeles to Oakland.“If only you knew how excited I was to fly,” he said.He recounted a trip to the Verizon offices, were he took videos of new tracking technologies that he immediately sent to his friends. From there, the group went a fancy dinner in San Francisco. The next morning, another trip to a corporate office, this time Airbnb, where the boys got to see a modern start-up office, with shared workspaces and open office configurations. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Saturday’s main event was the game, and before things went horribly on the court, the group got to sit courtside and watch the Clippers go through their pregame routines.“I’ve never been to something like this. I’ve never seen players like this up close,” Clouden said. “When you get down there, the court, it seems smaller. When you’re at the top or watching it on TV, it seems bigger, wider.”And that’s the message the trip’s organizers hoped to convey.These things, the engineering jobs at Verizon, the programming gigs at Airbnb, the athletic trainers, the shooting guards — they’re all possibilities.“It makes me think anything is possible,” Clouden said.For Clipper assistant coach for player development Dee Brown, who met with the group twice, getting their perspective on things was refreshing.He remembered talking to one member of the group, a Bay Area native returning to the area for the first time. He and his mother had left because his stepfather was abusive. They were briefly homeless.A trip near the water in San Francisco triggered some memories.“He went to the pier and he said, ‘Mr. Brown, I remember,’” Brown said.He responded by asking him about his favorite part of the whole weekend.“He said ‘The hotel bed was so comfortable. The most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in,’” Brown said. “It puts everything in perspective. … That story right there was very powerful to me.”center_img OAKLAND >> As Stephen Curry was raining down 3s, as Kevin Durant glided around like a 7-foot extra terrestrial and as Draymond Green blocked shoots and slammed home dunks, the Clippers could only hope to keep the 144-98 loss — the worst defeat of their season — in perspective.They spoke with soft, humiliated voices after the game and could have reminded themselves that they were playing without Chris Paul, their starting point guard. They could’ve said that the game was simply one of 82 — that a one-point loss and a 40-point loss lead to the same result in the standings. That it truly doesn’t matter if you beat them in the regular season when it only really counts if you beat them in postseason.Or, the Clippers could’ve walked back on the floor toward their bench, toward the basket where Curry scored 25 points in the third quarter. And, they could’ve looked up toward the roof of Oracle Arena, where hours earlier, perspective was sitting in the last few rows of section 211.For a group of 12 teenagers, Saturday’s game in Oakland wasn’t a lopsided loss. It wasn’t a disappointment. It was the experience of a lifetime.last_img read more

Sunday blog: Talking local politics, bullying, Obamacare, shoutouts and Quinn’s thoughts

first_img3. School Stuff: I really have nothing to talk about here except I’m really liking art this quarter. Shout out to Mrs. Turkle my art teacher. 5. SUMNER NEWSCOW TEE SHIRT GIVE AWAY: I’ve haven’t done one of these in a long time so here you go.Question: What molecule has two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms? Send your answer to mccueq@gmail.com. First one to answer correctly wins a T-shirt.That’s all so thanks for reading good bye! Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball and Quinn thoughts for Nov. 10, 2013…1. Some perspective…The older I get, the more I tire of politics, and the selfishness of it all. Liberals, Conservatives, Democrats, Republicans – they all sound like self-absorbed intolerant whiners.Unfortunately, such rancor seems to be seeping into the local lexicon. So was the case this week with the Susan’s Portrait studio parking lot debate. I was disappointed a few people were balking at something any business person would do, best position their business to succeed. In the wake of all the empty buildings in Wellington, it’s baffling to me anybody would protest anything that might help the local business climate.The reality is, business owner Susan Treft didn’t initiate getting a city loan to pay for a parking lot. According to Wellington City Code, any new business requires a hard surface (concrete or asphalt) parking lot. She was going to make it a gravel parking lot because a hard surface parking lot would cost in excess of $18,000. Essentially, she is borrowing to keep up with city standards.The debate should have been whether the city should require businesses to have a hard surface. Unfortunately, those throwing a fit decided to take it out on the small business owner.To his credit, Wellington City Council Gus Collins helped Susan with financing which she will pay back in 10 payments. If you think this is abnormal, then perhaps a reality pill is needed. Home owners in new developments are assessed special taxes by the municipality for newly paved streets and utilities. That’s only been done for like… forever.Nevertheless, even if you think government should not be involved with private business, the system is place to do so. If you are a business owner why should you not take advantage of the various means available?By the same token, shouldn’t we the community of Wellington give Susan the benefit of the doubt? As a professional photographer, I know very well just how highly Susan Treft is respected in the professional photography world. Photographers from across the state of Kansas come to her for her expertise. She teaches a class annually at the Kansas Professional Photographers Association summer school held for a week in Newton.In the digital world, no industry has been annihilated like the photography business. Last I counted, there were over 25 people in Sumner County, who were trying to make some money off their digital cameras. The fact that Susan is building a new studio is testimony just how good of photographer and business woman she really is and what an asset she is to Wellington.How many people have come into Wellington over the past 20 years from say Winfield, Wichita, Andale, Timbuktu to get their portraits taken while in the process getting a bite to eat and shopping a little in the process? Susan’s Portraits for years have contributed to the community’s sales tax revenue base. It is not only good that the Wellington City Council help her out, it should be mandatory.Wellington, you can’t have it both ways. We either make this community a pro-business friendly environment and help our local businesses, or we let this town decay. If we can’t help a small business person succeed in this corporate dominated world, then we have lost focus of what living in a small community such as Wellington is all about.It’s about helping one another. Quinn McCue5. Quinn’s thoughts… WHS Student Section at football games.4. Shout out of the week…  My shout out this week goes to the Wellington student section and the band who were absolutely fabulous at the Wellington High School football games this year. Come to think of it, a special shootout goes out to Sam Wylie for bringing us a new Crusader and Thunder the horse to the games. And good job to the WHS football team for giving us fans a winning record for the first time since 2009. And let’s not forget about the great seasons the Wellington Cross Country, girls tennis and girls volleyball teams had.When you look back at the fall sports season, it was a pretty good year to be a Crusader. Hi it’s Quinn and due to popular request here are my thoughts! 4. I like bunnies. Their so cute and fat.We have bunnies at the Wellington Middle school after school program.center_img 2. I’ve made banana muffins yesterday and 2 hours later they were all gone. Quinn Master Baker! 1. Pokemon: I’ve had a strange addiction to Pokemon white. It’s really fun and some of the Pokemon are so cute. 3. Obamacare headaches…President ObamaWow this Obamacare — or Affordable Healthcare Act for the political correct — has gotten off to a terrible start. Not only is the Obamacare registration website not been working properly and our former governor Kathleen Sebelius, now U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary, is under fire for gross negligence, but some people are getting their current health insurance policies canceled. If you don’t believe me, get on Facebook and see the rancor of those who learned that their current health coverage has been canceled because it doesn’t fit with the requirements of Obamacare.Wasn’t this new healthcare plan supposed to give people more healthcare coverage not less?I’m reserving judgment on whether Obamacare is actually good for healthcare. My wife, who knows a little about medicine, isn’t so sure herself.But there’s no doubt the initial implementation of this program has been a complete disaster. And there is still this thing that proponents can’t seem to answer about how the heck are we going to pay for Obamacare considering our deficit is in the trillions and we are having a hard time funding Social Security and Medicare now especially with all you hippy baby boomers reaching retirement age. 2. Bullying…The Wellington school board members, some who have been known to do a little bullying themselves, should pay careful attention what is going on with the Miami Dolphins. An NFL lineman, Richie Incognito, is accused of bullying another offensive lineman Jonathan Martin and it became a major issue last week for the Miami Dolphin organization. What has ensued is a national controversy that looked eerily similar to a situation we had in Wellington a few weeks earlier. It could result in several firings throughout the Dolphin management.Wellington school district needs to take an aggressive approach in not only implementing its anti-bullying policies it established a few years ago, but educate its teachers, students and parents on the dangers of bullying – especially in the social media.I liked what Circle High Schools did the other day. They had an assembly for parents, students, teachers and administrators addressing the problem with social media and bullying.The saying goes an ounce of prevention is better than a ton of cure is applicable here. Social media and bullying education should be as mandatory as drug and sex education. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Photo of Aaron Jones gaming while girlfriend readies to give birth sparks social media debate
