FIFA head of refereeing rejects Wueck grouse

first_imgKolkata, Oct 23 (PTI) FIFAs Head of Refereeing Massimo Busacca today took a dig at Germany coach Christian Wueck, who hit out at the referee after their “harsh” 1-2 quarterfinal elimination against Brazil in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup.Brazil struck twice through Weverson and Paulinho in a space of six minutes in the second-half yesterday to seal a semifinal spot.Germany coach Wueck congratulated Brazil but was clearly unhappy with the USA referee Jair Marrufo, claiming that a legitimate penalty was denied to his team before the Selecao juniors got the lead in the 77th minute.”Anyone who saw the game can judge himself alone without listening to somebody else,” the FIFAs Head of Refereeing Department told the reporters today.Without naming Wueck, the Swiss said one should not complain much unless theres a terrible scandal in a match.”Honestly I dont want to single out a situation other than that of a blatant violation, or a scandal. It does not make any sense. I dont think it was a case like that yesterday. Dont lose too much time over it.”He further said everybody saw the performances and can judge easily.”I dont want to say something when everybody has seen it, and can make an explanation himself.”In full support of the USA referee, Busacca said, “I saw what happened yesterday, because we review everyday. I know what we are doing. Honestly, its not my habit to find excuse in life. If we commit a mistake, its very easy for me to admit and say were bad.advertisement”Sometimes we can have a situation but we have to admit without complaining so much. In general I can say we are very very happy with the performance of this group of referees and the assistants. In this competition, we are very happy about their decisions. We did not see any major problem.”Meanwhile, Busacca said that football is in Indias blood and its a matter of time that the nations referees would officiate at a top-level FIFA tournament.Having witnessed a record attendance of 66,000 plus in the Germany-Brazil quarterfinal match at the Salt Lake Stadium yesterday, the Swiss said it was a historical achievement.”Look at the spectators you are having in a game. Its incredible to see the average number of spectators turnout. Yesterday it was amazing. We can only thank India.”I have never seen so many spectators in a U-17 competition. That means football is in Indias blood. Its not only cricket and other sports but as we have seen theres also football,” the 48-year-old said.”They have proved to the world that we can organise a World Cup, are ready and also enjoying football.”He also lauded the performance of the Indian team, although they had lost all their three league games.”Even when the national team was playing, though they did not have any big experience, we saw very good individual skills. This is the good start to the future.”The FIFA head of refereeing department is also impressed by the Indian referees, who were part of a week long workshop.”A group of elite referees and instructors were invited by me to see how we are working. To have a feel of how professional referees can wake up every morning and be ready for the game. They understood and its now in their hands.”They now know how top professional referees prepare before a week during a competition. They looked very motivated. In my opinion, in a few years top referees from India will be seen at the high level FIFA competitions,” he said. PTI TAP CM CMlast_img read more

Housing agency explores cutting red tape for selfemployed borrowers

first_imgOTTAWA – The national housing agency is exploring ways to make it easier for entrepreneurs and new immigrants to buy a home by cutting some of the red tape required to prove they can afford to pay the mortgage.“Right now, under our mortgage insurance policies, you have to be able to document income to get mortgage insurance, to a level of specificity that discriminates against new Canadians, because they can’t do that,” Evan Siddall, the CEO of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., said in a wide-ranging interview with The Canadian Press.“It discriminates against entrepreneurs, as well, because they can’t prove their income as well, so we’re looking at our own policies to try and make sure that there is more equity in our mortgage insurance programs,” he said.Anyone who wants to buy a home in Canada without a down payment of at least 20 per cent of the purchase price is usually required to get mortgage loan insurance from the CMHC, which requires a smaller down payment of five per cent on a home worth up to $500,000.A 10-per-cent down payment is required for the portion of the price over $500,000, with $1 million being the maximum property value allowed.The mortgage insurance comes with a premium, which the lender will then pass on to the person buying the home.Borrowers need to satisfy lenders they will be able to make their mortgage payments, which usually means providing proof of employment and a few pay stubs. But that can be tricky for people who just started their own business.It can also be a barrier to those whose employment history has gaps for other reasons, such as having recently immigrated to Canada.People who are self-employed, for example, usually need to provide notices of assessment for the previous two years. Their income is determined by averaging those two years, although the most recent year can be used if it has increased annually for at least four years.They also need to have been doing the same type of work for at least two years.Dan Kelly, president of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said more flexibility would be welcome, especially for startups.“If one starts a business or is self-employed, the lines between their personal and business finances are often quite blurry,” said Kelly.“Often, their personal assets are required to get financing for the business. But then they also have a challenge getting financing on the personal side, because they don’t have the nice, clean letter of offer from an employer that is often quite convincing in these situations,” he said.Any relaxation of the rules would naturally increase the risk. So Siddall said the agency is looking at how to manage that, including different ways to document income, and higher premiums.“Can we charge for that risk? Better to charge that risk than not to make it available,” he said.Jack Fiorillo, a broker with TMG The Mortgage Group in Woodbridge, Ont., said he expects the CMHC to be fairly conservative on this front.“It will be a very small sandbox that CMHC will play in, probably at the beginning, and then maybe if once their risk appetite increases, maybe they can expand that box,” said Fiorillo.He said he expects the potential change to make it easier for a relatively small number of self-employed people to get a mortgage, and they will likely have to pay higher interest rates.The CMHC said it has been compiling data on how many would-be homeowners have their mortgage applications rejected for these reasons, but cannot disclose those numbers right now because it is based on conversations with commercial lenders.“We are still doing research and development to move this forward,” CMHC spokesman Jonathan Rotondo said in an email.Siddall said the Crown corporation has raised the idea with its board and expects to announce something within the next six months.– Follow @smithjoanna on Twitterlast_img read more

Ports Authority tender for container scrutiny at docks delayed

first_img Related Items:containers, guns, ports authority Recommended for you Police calling on Public to stand against Guns Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Jun 2015 – As some residents speculate strongly that guns may be coming in through our legal import/export docks; we look back on the move by the country’s port managers to better secure the shipping process. The Ports Authority was since January given the green light by Government to go to tender so that container scanners could be introduced at all seaports – they want to be able to check containers coming in and containers going out for security purposes. In September 2014, a proposal was made at Cabinet and based on Cabinet minutes, the idea was widely supported then and again in January at the first sitting of Ministers and the Governor for the year. The Governor’s Office explained that Cabinet welcomed the proposal and agreed that the Ports Authority should put the work out to tender. The Ports Authority is currently working toward a multi-million dollar dredging and upgrade for at least three of the country’s docks namely Grand Turk, South Caicos and South Dock in Provo. It is estimated the enhancements to the docks will take $40 to $50 million dollars with the hopes that work would begin later this year. As for the job for the containerized scanners, we could find no trace of a tender.
