At the 1924 Congress, FIFA agreed to assume responsibility for the organisation of the Olympic Football Tournament by ratifying the proposal that “on condition that the Olympic Football Tournament takes place in accordance with the Regulations of FIFA, the latter shall recognise this as a world football championship”. The 1924 tournament was a great success with 60,000 spectators following the final between Uruguay and Switzerland. The South Americans won 3-0 and were celebrated as World Champions in Montevideo. South America’s predominance was even more impressive at the Olympic Football Tournament in Amsterdam in 1928. Against next-door neighbour Argentina, Uruguay did not want to relinquish their victory on that occasion. This resonance at the Olympic Games intensified FIFA’s wish for its own World Championship. FIFA President Jules Rimet was the driving force in the search for the means to materialise this dream. Following a proposal of the Executive Committee, the FIFA Congress in Amsterdam on 26 May 1928 decided to stage an official FIFA World Championship: the World Cup was born! One year later Uruguay, twice Olympic Champions, planning the celebration of its 100th anniversary of independence in 1930, were assigned the organisation of the first FIFA World Cup™. The first FIFA World Cup™ FIFA’s decision to hold the first World Cup in Uruguay did not only meet acclaim, as Europe was plunged in the midst of an economic crisis. Participation in a World Cup taking place overseas, involved a long sea journey. Moreover, for the clubs it meant they had to renounce their best players for two months. Thus, more and more European associations broke their promise to participate. Thanks to Rimet’s personal efforts, at least four Belgium, France, Yugoslavia and Romania - set off on the long journey. The World Cup, opened at the Estadio Centenario on 18 July 1930, became a remarkable success, both in a sporting and financial sense. On 30th July, the first World Cup final saw the same fixture as two years before at the Olympic Football Tournament. Being 2-1 down at half-time, Uruguay raised the rhythm of their play, regained the lead and - cheered on by the majority of the 93,000 crowd - finally won 4-2. The organisers on the other hand were disappointed at the fact that only four European teams participated. The anger in Montevideo was so intense that four years later, the World Champions - for the first and only time - renounced defending their title
The long fight to reform Michigan's no-fault auto insurance system might be coming to a head. Republican leaders laid out a new proposal Thursday that would place a cap on the now-unlimited medical claims and force insurers to their rates for now. House Speaker Jase Bolger, R-Marshall, announced the plan, citing the fact Michigan drivers pay some of the highest premiums on car insurance in the country.
It is important to use a step by step organized approach to develop packaging design. Among other things, it helps to define which steps are client responsibilities and which are responsibilities of the design firm. 1. The first step in the process is for the client to describe the assignment to the design firm, assemble all relevant information and materials, list product benefits and key points in their priority of importance and clarify any mandatories. A “mandatory” is something that is required for the category or company. A “category” example would be the legal way a product should be described. A “company” example could be that the company president doesn’t like the color red. That means that the designer won’t use red! 2. The second step is for the design firm to prepare a proposal for the client. The proposal should include the designer’s understanding of the assignment and responsibilities, and how the designer plans to execute the assignment, spelling out deliverables, timetables and costs for each module or phase in the process. 3. The third is the most important step in the design process and it has nothing to do with graphics. The client and/or the design firm must develop a Communications Strategy that includes a strong USP - Unique Selling Proposition - (sometimes referred to as a Brand Positioning or the Brand Essence) as well as specific design direction for the specific project. The USP gives the trade and consumer a clear understanding of what makes your product different and better than your competition. There is nothing more important to the designer than to have a clear, powerful Brand Positioning to execute.
