US Soccer Vice President Carlos Cordeiro Elected to Top Spot

Carlos Cordeiro

Carlos Cordeiro won in the third round of voting for U.S. Soccer president

"I said winning this election is going to be about building a coalition", Cordeiro said. We have enjoyed a productive relationship with Carlos in his time as a U.S. Soccer board member during the last 11 years. For all the talk about radical reform, the U.S. Soccer electorate was quite different from those on social media and quite comfortable with the 61-year-old Cordeiro, who had been on the federation's board of directors for more than a decade, and Kathy Carter, who has been selling soccer for more than a quarter century, first for the 1994 World Cup organizing committee and now for SUM, for which she was on leave as president.

Carlos Cordeiro has been elected the new president of US Soccer.

Cordeiro has also previously served as treasurer, chair of the Budget Committee and Director of the U.S. Soccer Foundation.

Carlos Cordeiro, the federation's vice-president, was elevated to replace the outgoing leader, Sunil Gulati, after winning a majority verdict following three ballots in a crowded field of eight.

It was hoped the former national team players Kyle Martino, Eric Wynalda or Hope Solo would provide a fresh outlook to help the USA recover from missing out on this summer's World Cup and its deep-rooted failure when it comes to nurturing talent. I promise I will work for all of you to bring us together as one soccer community.

On the third round, MLS and the NWSL switched to Cordeiro, giving him more than 68 percent and dropping Carter into a tie with Martino, ahead of Wynalda, for second place. In recent times it's been a very hard path, with the USA men's national team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. "It's not about any one council".

Apple HomePod: Amazing Sound, But Not for Everybody
Indeed, Google is reaching out to the same audience of people who have a discerning ear for music as Apple is with HomePod. It can't yet control iOS devices or Apple TVs, and it can't distinguish between multiple users' voices.

A business executive with more than 30 years of experience in global finance, he became a partner at Goldman Sachs in the early 1990s and was later appointed Vice Chairman-Asia. The bid - which would see the United States host 60 of the 80 games with Mexico and Canada taking up the slack - is due in 34 days.

That's lead many fans to support ex-USMNT stars Kyle Martino and Eric Wynalda, two candidates campaigning on changing the status quo in U.S. Soccer. "I am an immigrant who came here when I was a boy of 15 with my mother and three siblings. I owe everything I have to the American system".

"We can't be here four years from now, realizing we made big mistakes", Solo said. "We have to do a number of things ourselves to make it happen, and make it happen more rapidly". "We have to reach out to those underserved, the diverse immigrant populations".

Newborn found abandoned with a note from mother in Tucson Airport
A custodian told police she saw the woman holding the baby inside the restroom and that there were pools of blood on the floor. Tucson Airport Authority officials say investigators still are trying to identify the woman, who may be the baby boy's mother.

But if there were two establishment candidates, as many felt there were, Cordeiro was one of them.

Canada sheds 88000 net jobs, but sees full-time gains
In the United States, there was a increase of 200,000 jobs in January and the unemployment rates was unchanged at 4.1 per cent. Economists are always cautious about reading too much into one-month of numbers in a data series that can be volatile.
