Gregg Williams has been the interim man in charge after Hue Jackson was fired, but no full-time successor has been named.Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley is one of the hottest names in coaching right now. Riley has helped the Sooners to back-to-back College Football Playoff appearances and has been linked to the Browns and Packers’ coaching vacancies.Riley also has a significant tie to Cleveland, as he coached Baker Mayfield in college. So, is there any chance Baker would plant the seed in his former coach’s mind?No, Mayfield says, at least not yet. He told the media that while Riley has ‘been ready” to be an NFL head coach, he hasn’t spoken to him about the Browns job.Baker Mayfield says Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley has ‘been ready’ to be an #NFL coach, but hasn’t tried to talk him into the #Browns job https://t.co/UeyE45qTpw— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) December 5, 2018Asked if Riley would potentially jump to the professional ranks, Mayfield thinks it will happen eventually.“I think down the road probably,’’ said Mayfield. “But like I said, right now I’m not going to speak for him, but he’s ready whenever that time comes.’’Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy while playing for Riley in 2017.

According to the latest report of the Secretary-General on global geospatial information management, the rapid technological advances in geospatial information and related technologies have made this kind of information readily available.Geospatial information has application in many fields including humanitarian, peace and security, environmental and development challenges facing the world, such as climate change, natural disasters, pandemics, famines, population displacement and food and economic crises, according to the report.Building the infrastructure for the gathering, validation, compilation and dissemination of geospatial information is therefore as important for countries as the building of roads and telecommunications networks.However, there is currently no global multilateral or intergovernmental mechanism that can play the important leadership role of setting the agenda for the development of global geospatial information and promote its use to address key global challenges.The Secretary-General proposed that the UN take the lead role and serve as the coordinating entity of the global geospatial information community, hence the decision to create the committee.The committee is mandated, among other tasks, with providing a platform for the development of effective strategies on how to build and strengthen national capacity on geospatial information, especially in developing countries.It will also compile and disseminate best practices and experiences of national, regional and international bodies on geospatial information related to legal instruments, management models and technical standards, thus contributing to the establishment of spatial data infrastructures.The committee will comprise experts from all Member States, as well as from and international organizations, who will serve as observers. 27 July 2011The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) today voted to establish a committee of experts on global geospatial information management to coordinate international dialogue on spatial data infrastructures and enhance cooperation in that field.
