Further, said that the CSD has not yet entered the money “committed”. “The RFEF wants to expressly state that, unfortunately, as of today it still does not receive the money committed from the Higher Sports Council and that this creates a huge setback for the affected clubs,” he said.“Given the situation, the RFEF has decided to advance the money to the clubs to mitigate the negative consequences of non-payment of the Aid by the Higher Sports Council, as it already did in the month of July advancing 75% of the aid to those clubs that requested it“he concluded. The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) announced this Monday which will advance the total amounts for Social Security business fees to clubs of Second Division B and First Iberdrola with the objective of “mitigating the negative consequences” of the lack of payment of the aid by the Higher Sports Council (CSD).“The RFEF has initiated the processing of 100% payment orders of the amounts granted in the Resolution of the Superior Council of Sports referring to Social Security business quotas to the clubs that have provided the supporting documentation, “he informed The federative body.

It’s lip service to coincide with Trump’s re-election bid and any second term he might serve. What of the 20 year old International Space Station (ISS) — which Trump has said will cease in 2025 — for which NASA funding is secure only until 2024 along with the crew transportation by U.S. and Russian craft? My biggest fear: no ISS and no Moon landing which will leave America and most of the world’s other astronauts grounded for God-only-knows how long.

NASA’s SLS rocket is behind schedule and its initial configuration can’t get a lander in lunar orbit anyway. Nor does NASA have a lander yet to get them on the moon and back home. China has plans to land people on the south pole of the moon too, but it has no official date and is likely to be 2025 at the very earliest. SpaceX has their #dearMoon project which may happen in 2023 (at the earliest) but this is a flyby of the moon and not a landing.

The US will return astronauts to the moon before the end of 2024, according to the country’s vice-president, Mike Pence.He made the announcement last week at the fifth meeting of the National Space Council, which took place at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.About a fortnight before the meeting, Nasa had submitted a budget aimed at returning humans to the moon by 2028. Speaking after the vice-president’s announcement, the Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement: “It is the right time for this challenge, and I assured the vice-president that we, the people of Nasa, are up to the challenge.”The stumbling block, however, could very well be the cost of an accelerated programme. Nasa will require additional funds to meet the goal, which represents the wishes of Donald Trump.It is currently revising its budget request, which must then be agreed by Congress. This agreement is not guaranteed. At a meeting of the House science committee on 2 April 2019, its chairwoman, Eddie Bernice Johnson, the democratic representative for Texas, questioned the need to accelerate the programme. Nasa is planning to submit its new budget request around the middle of April. Nasa 6 Apr 2019 11:47 It would be good to know more about what is planned. Personally I would like to see a programme that sees facilities set on the Moon as part of developing a base on Mars. Also the next steps of making it possible to mine the asteroids and move as much industrial activity as possible off the surface of the Earth. Going to the Moon in order to put another flag there really does not seem worth the trouble. Even if it could be seen as a way of doing the on-ups to the Chinese and Indian “pretenders” to the USA’s existing space achievement crown Sign in or create your Guardian account to recommend a comment 5 Apr 2019 16:47
