PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – Football’s world governing body, FIFA, has appointed a normalisation committee to run the affairs of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association, in an attempt to restore governance and financial stability to the beleaguered organisation. In a statement Tuesday, the Zurich-based institution said the decision had been taken following a joint assessment of the TTFA carried out by itself and continental governing body, CONCACAF, which found “extremely low overall financial management methods, combined with a massive debt”, leaving the local body “facing a very real risk of insolvency and illiquidity”.The TTFA board, led by the newly elected William Wallace, will be dismantled and fresh elections organised by the normalisation committee.“The Bureau of the FIFA Council has today decided to appoint a normalisation committee for the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association in accordance with art. 8 par. 2 of the FIFA Statutes,” a FIFA release said. “The decision follows the recent FIFA/CONCACAF fact-finding mission to Trinidad and Tobago to assess, together with an independent auditor, the financial situation of TTFA. The mission found that extremely low overall financial management methods, combined with a massive debt, have resulted in the TTFA facing a very real risk of insolvency and illiquidity. “Such a situation is putting at risk the organisation and development of football in the country and corrective measures need to be applied urgently.” The committee, the members of which are yet to be identified, will have a two-year span in which to carry out its work which also includes creating a debt repayment plan which the TTFA can implement, reviewing the local governing body’s statutes and ensuring their adherence to FIFA regulations.Most significantly, FIFA said the committee would oversee new elections for an executive committee to run the TTFA again.“The normalisation committee will be composed of an adequate number of members to be identified by the FIFA administration, in consultation with CONCACAF. In line with the FIFA Governance Regulations, all members of the normalisation committee will be subject to an eligibility check,” FIFA said. “The normalisation committee will act as an electoral committee, and none of its members will be eligible for any of the open positions in the TTFA elections under any circumstances. “The specified period of time during which the normalisation committee will perform its functions will expire as soon as it has fulfilled all of its assigned tasks, but no later than 24 months after its members have been officially appointed by FIFA.”The development comes less than five months after William Wallace defeated incumbent David John-Williams in elections last November, to assume the helm of the TTFA. In the buildup to elections, John-Williams appeared to have the support of FIFA president Gianni Infantino and CONCACAF president, Victor Montagliani, who visited the island for the grand opening of its Home of Football complex in Couva.The TTFA has been besieged by financial problems in recent time with Wallace claiming earlier this month that the body’s finances were in disarray.
Travellers Rest Golf GroupMonday, June 30, Greenwood – StablefordMany moon’s ago the Boomtown Rats sang a song that topped the charts called “I Don’t Like Mondays”, and most people would agree, as they have to return to work on Monday after having the weekend off. Charlie Cox however is an exception because he obviously does like Mondays and for two weeks running he has he has jumped out of bed at the start of the week and proceeded to win a golf competition. On Monday at Greenwood (B and C courses) Charlie rattled off 40 points and walked off with the first prize, leaving all the other golfers wishing they had stayed in bed.Fergus Brennan. Mind you, although Charlie made it look easy there was quite a scrap going on behind him for second and third places. Aussies Daryl Ottaway and Ted Senior were locking horns and both finished with a highly respectable 37 points each and it took a count back to finally separate them.1st Charlie Cox (19) 40pts2nd Daryl Ottaway (5) 37pts3rd Ted Senior (14) 37ptsWednesday, July 2, Burapha – StablefordOn Wednesday Fergus Brennan packed up his troubles in his old kitbag, smiled, smiled, smiled and proceeded to show some true grit just like John Wayne. Despite having the troubles of the world on his shoulders of late, he cast them all off on Burapha’s B and C courses and came out on top of the leader board and then told everybody it was the first round of golf he had won in living memory. And as somebody once said to John Wayne in True Grit, it was “big talk from a one eyed fat man,” but he carried it off with his usual aplomb or should that be his Irish blarney.Fergus was very nearly pipped for top spot by a lady, Carmen Hurdon, but she had to settle for second place after a count back. ‘Mr Reliable’ a.k.a. Neil Bramley had to make do with third place on this occasion.1st Fergus Brennan (12) 35pts2nd Carmen Hurdon (18) 35pts3rd Neil Bramley (8) 32ptsFriday, July 4, Plutaluang – StablefordThe TRGG took another trip over to the Navy Course at Plutaluang (West and North courses) on Friday and not wishing to be outdone by his partner at the TRGG, Derek Thorogood thought he would get into the act and won the day’s competition. Derek has been very consistent of late and has cemented a regular appearance on the winner’s podium and he even managed to beat off last week’s hero Ito Akitoshi who finished in second place.Derek Thorogood.Carmen Hurdon again had a good day again, finishing in the places but this time in third.1st Derek Thorogood (16) 38pts2nd Ito Akitoshi (7) 37pts3rd Carmen Hurdon (18) 35ptsGood luck to all you golfers for the coming week and if you would like to play a round of golf with the TRGG, please phone Fergus Brennan on 086 056 7019 or pop into the Ned Kelly Bar in Soi Lengkee and add your name to the weekly lists which are posted on the notice board.
There are tons of brain training games out there, but I’ve never heard of one that works as well as DRUGS before. Researchers at the University of Cambridge in England recently created a brain training game called Decoder, where your goal is to spot sequences of numbers. They found that it temporarily boosted people’s concentration so well, it was as effective as taking RITALIN. If you’re not familiar, Ritalin is what they give people with ADHD to help them focus. And they just ran a study where they had people play the game for a little while, and then take a test. You can download an app with the game for free by searching for Peak Brain Training. It comes bundled with a bunch of other games, but as far as we know, they don’t work quite as well as the Decoder game. Decoder is already included on the app for iPhones and should hit Android devices later this year.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – OCTOBER 10: Kevin Durant (L) #35 and DeMarcus Cousins #0 of the Golden State Warriors share a laugh as they sit on a baseline during their preseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers at T-Mobile Arena on October 10, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Lakers defeated the Warriors 123-113.

(Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)Nik Stauskas spent just one season in Sacramento, Calif., but it was a pretty entertaining one. There was the creation of his own hot sauce, “Sauce Castillo,” the “popcorning” of his apartment, the bet he made with Draymond Green, and a lot more. The former Michigan star is off to Philadelphia, as part of a trade the Kings made to open up some cap space. DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings’ best player, shared (and later deleted) the text conversation he had with Stauskas after the trade was made public. It’s a pretty cool insight into the life of an NBA player. We’re not sure why Cousins opted to delete the Instagram post, but it’s nice to see the Kings’ big man wish his former teammate well in Philadelphia.
