Blatter renuncia a la presidencia de la FIFA

Tras el escándalo de corrupción en la cúpula del fútbol, Joseph Blatter da un paso al costado.

Sólo cuatro días duró el quinto mandato del suizo Joseph Blatter al frente de la FIFA. Este martes anunció, de manera sorpresiva, su renuncia a la presidencia de la entidad.

Además, pidió a los miembros de la federación abrir una nueva elección, para lo cual se solicitó renovar el congreso.

El suizo señaló que se quedará al frente de la presidencia mientras se elige al nuevo mandamás de la FIFA. Se espera que las propias federaciones definan la fecha y el lugar del nuevo congreso, y se especula que la elección se hará entre diciembre de 2015 y marzo de 2016.

Los medios en el mundo comienzan a cuestionarse qué cambió en estos días para que haya Blatter haya tomado esta trascendental decisión. 

Sin duda, hay algo grande detrás; el día que Blatter fue reelecto aseguró que no abandonaría a la entidad en su momento más complejo. 

De hecho, prometió un “cambio revolucionario” al interior de una organiza…

Mexico City (AFP) June 1, 2015

Andres, the first hurricane of the season in the Pacific, strengthened to a category four storm Monday but was headed away from Mexico's west coast.

Mexico's National Meteorological Service said the hurricane was packing winds of 230 kilometers (143 miles) an hour as it churned across open ocean 1,010 kilometers southwest of Isla Socorro near Cabo San Lucas, a resort city in Baja California.

Mexican weather authorities warned of the possibility of "intense to very strong" rains in the western states of Guerrero, Michoacan, Jalisco, Colima and Nayarit.

AUSTRALIA : Mango growers Prep for more US exports

Mango growers in the Northern Territory and the rest of Australia are still processing the results of the 2014/15 season, but a visit from the two importers who handled the first shipments of Australian mangoes into the US in February has meant that preparations for the 2016 export season are well under way. 

“Training for pest monitoring for the upcoming 2015/16 season will start in July, and registrations with the Department of Agriculture for those growers looking to export next year will start in August,”says Michael Daysh, Market Development Officer with the Northern Territory Department of Primary Industries, and project leader on the first shipments that went to the US earlier this year.

By mid August, it should be clear which Northern Territory growers will be registering with the Government to export to the US, and in early September growers nationwide who will be exporting should be known.

Those growers looking to send mangoes to the US will need to be prepared, and show a comm…

Reuters/Arnd WiegmannFIFA president Sepp Blatter

FIFA president Sepp Blatter is resigning as president of FIFA, he announced on Tuesday at a surprise press conference.

"FIFA needs profound restructuring,"he said in a statement.

There will be an "extraordinary congress" of FIFA and a new president will be elected, at which time he will step down the post he has held since 1998.

It's a shocking move. Two days after nine current and former FIFA officials were arrested in a $150 million bribery scandal, Blatter defiantly stood for a fifth term and was reelected in a landslide. Now, less than a week later, he's quitting.

More coming...
