US Soccer reboots, elects Carlos Cordeiro president

Carlos Cordeiro became U.S. Soccer vice president in 2016. Two years later he was elected president. More

Portuguese American Carlos Cordeiro was elected today 32th president of the United States Soccer Federation.

Over 500 delegates gathered in Orlando on Saturday to elect Carlos Cordeiro, now the former USSF vice president, as Sunil Gulati's successor.

The victor will assume Gulati's seat with immediate effect, while the outgoing president will remain in his role on the FIFA Council while also spearheading the USA's joint effort with Canada and Mexico to host the 2026 World Cup.

Apple HomePod Now Available in US, UK, and Australia
The United Kingdom is the second of Apple's three launch countries to begin deliveries, in-store pick-ups and sales of HomePod . If Siri finds a coffee shop that sounds to your liking, for example, there's no way to send that information to your iPhone.

Going into the election, which included two votes from fans - believed to be a first in soccer federation governance - Carter was emerging as a strong front runner. Cordeiro had declared his intention to specifically run against now-outgoing President Sunil Gulati before Gulati declined to enter the election, possibly making him less of a status quo candidate than many assume. The women's game - the push for equal play for national team players and the problems facing the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) - needs looking at too.

And that story is what must be repeated, he says, for U.S. Soccer to fulfill its mission to make soccer a preeminent sport.

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. "They represent everybody, and what they did is they failed many of us". Gulati will retain a role as a member of the USSF board and the Federation Internationale de Football Association executive council, and as chairman of the North American bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

Apple dispels security concerns regarding leaked iOS 9 source code
Apple is famous for keeping its code secret, but this leak might result in some headaches for the Cupertino tech giant. Further, he added that the leaked code matches with the portion he reverse engineered himself in the past.

The vote was done over three ballots before Cordeiro was able to acquire the majority vote.

But as the results of the second ballot were announced, it was clear that the two polarizing candidates - Carter and Wynalda - had, as many suspected would happen, had hit their ceilings. Winograd and Gans bowed out after the second ballot, leaving Wynalda (10.8), Martino (10.2) and Solo (1.5) in the race with Cordeiro and Carter. The group of 20 current and former national teamers, which controlled 20 percent of the vote, decided in the final 12 hours of the campaign to vote as a bloc for Cordeiro. "It's not about any one council". To those of you who didn't vote for me, I'm going to work to earn your support and trust over the next four years. The rest of the voting by the members of Adult and Youth Councils varied for the different candidate, as they did not vote as a consensus. No one council has enough votes to get you across the line. "I think my numbers speak to that".
