Indiana Notaries Public to see significant changes in coming weeks

first_imgStatewide— Indiana’s largest body of public officials is undergoing a number of changes to longstanding regulations. One major change introduced this year was the debut of remote notarization, which took effect on March 31, 2020. In a remote notary situation, signers appear before the remote notary public by two-way audio/visual communication. This communication must be on a pre-approved platform, and the notarization and signatures are captured electronically.For this change, the Business Services Division fast-tracked the adoption of the rules, and the office started accepting applications for remote notary authorization three months earlier than planned. This authorized Indiana notaries to perform remote notarizations at an essential time, due to stay at home orders and social distancing protocols stemming from COVID-19.Only active notaries can become remote notaries, and only after an application has been accepted (in addition to the general requirements for notaries). Remote notaries must work through state-approved technology vendors.Starting July 1, 2020, all notaries will be required to take a continuing education course every two years during their eight-year commission. All notaries are required to participate, and if a notary fails to complete their continuing education requirements by the deadline, their commission will be terminated.last_img read more

Sierra Leone FA president Isha Johansen acquitted of corruption

first_img Source: BBC Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) President Isha Johansen has been acquitted on all counts of corruption by a court in Freetown.Her acquittal, along with SLFA General Secretary Christopher Kamara, paves the way for the lifting of a ban from global football.Football’s world governing body, Fifa, suspended Sierra Leone in October last year due to the third-party interference in the running of the SLFA,Soon after the suspension Fifa said it would “wait for the completion of the trial before further measures can be considered, including the lifting of the suspension, if deemed appropriate.”The ban came after the country’s anti-corruption commission (ACC) set aside Johansen and Kamara and handed over control of the SLFA to vice-president Brima Mazola Kamara and assistant secretary general Abdul Rahman Swarray.The ACC says that under Sierra Leone law, both Johansen and Kamara must vacate their posts until their case on corruption-related charges concludes.Fifa always maintained that it would only recognise Johansen as the SLFA president.The original corruption charges against the pair were drastically reduced from ten counts to three, and from four to three for Kamara.Johansen and Kamara have always denied any wrongdoing.Sierra Leone’s ban saw them disqualified from the qualifying campaign for next month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.last_img read more

Lakers’ Byron Scott unapologetic about stern approach toward players

first_imgScott noted this week “a whole lot of people I wouldn’t want to be in a foxhole with. I think they’d end up shooting me in the back.”That likely includes Lakers forward Nick Young, who recently told Los Angeles News Group he takes Scott’s criticism with a “grain of salt.” Before Young’s six-week old left knee injury, Scott had implored Young to improve his shooting accuracy (a career-low 36.1 percent) and sharpen his passing and defense. “He’s tried to do some of the things I asked him to do,” Scott said of Young, who signed with the Lakers last offseason to a four-year, $21.5 million deal. “It’s called coaching. I’m trying to tell you what you need to do to get better.”Generally, Lakers forward Ed Davis supported Scott’s critical comments as a way to hold the team accountable. Scott has often lamented Jeremy Lin’s inconsistency as well as the effort of Wesley Johnson, Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer at times.Meanwhile, Scott has mostly praised the work ethic of Bryant, Randle, Clarkson, Davis, Price, Ellington and rookie center Tarik Black. “I’m not that difficult, to be honest with you. If you do those things, you play. If you don’t, you don’t,” Scott said. “There are guys I want to know who I can go to battle with no matter how the season is going.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Yet, Scott has occasionally criticized his players’ effort and recently implored his team to show a more “workmanlike attitude.”Some listened. Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson posted 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting, four rebounds and six assists, rectifying a two-point effort on 1-of-6 shooting in the previous loss on Sunday to the Clippers. After appearing flustered with the Clippers’ double teams, Clarkson attacked the basket enough to drive by Clippers guard Chris Paul on two separate possessions. He also made a reverse layup over Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, someone Scott and Clippers coach Doc Rivers touted the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year.The Lakers’ Tarik Black (16 points), Wesley Johnson (15 points) and Jeremy Lin (14 points) also cracked double figures.But that could not offset productive nights from the Clippers’ Blake Griffin (27 points), J.J. Redick (27 points) and Paul (19), as well as a poor game from Lakers forward Ryan Kelly (eight points on 3-of-17 shooting). center_img The message seemed simple.“(Expletive) compete,” Lakers coach Byron Scott told his players after Tuesday’s morning shootaround. If only it were so easy. The Lakers fell short in a 105-100 loss to the Clippers in a designated road game at Staples Center, a more respectable outcome than their 28-point loss to the Clippers on Sunday. But a few unsettling developments still emerged. The Lakers (20-57) lost the season series to the Clippers (53-26) for the third consecutive year and fifth time in franchise history. Season-ending injuries contributed to the Lakers’ struggles,including Kobe Bryant (right shoulder), Steve Nash (back), Julius Randle (right leg), Nick Young (left knee), Wayne Ellington (right shoulder), Ronnie Price (right elbow) and Xavier Henry (left Achilles tendon). last_img read more

The reborn Espanyol

LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 5, 2020 Already at the entrance, striking was the ownership of Óscar Melendo, which certainly came from overcoming ankle discomfort but, in addition, was not of the game in LaLiga since September 15. Three and half months. Another striking recovery in the initial team was that of Javi López, the captain, who had only participated in one of the previous 11 days, there is nothing, and whose performance against the Catalans was simply spectacular.The third big news was David Lopez, not for its ownership but for its return to the midfielder. And it could not be better for Abelardo, because he scored. The stopped ball, not in vain, is another of the new coach’s hallmarks, as it was for Pablo Machín, although in the case of the Soriano that effect (and many others) dissipated after the first matches.Already during the match, players such as Ander Iturraspe or Matías Vargas, author of assistance to Wu Lei. And it was seen, even in the absence of a goal, the best version of Jonathan Calleri, which was already indisputable with Abelardo in the Alavés.But perhaps the most radical metamorphosis was experienced Marc Roca, who from a rude error in Butarque happened in the derby to be displayed. A lot of guilt was sure, in his case and in the rest, a sensible approach, with four defenses, with lines together, with order and pragmatism. The essences If they recover, Espanyol will. Against Barcelona they already glimpsed, and in what way, some of those improvements that the new coach is looking for, and that in fact he needs to settle urgently if he wants to have any option of achieving permanence. So what I only had seven workouts (one per day, plus the double session on Monday) to prepare a very difficult meeting. It crowded the “Yes you can!”From the Cornellà stand on Saturday night, while Espanyol players and fans exchanged applause after the most valuable tie in the derby. A scene totally opposite to that of the previous game, against Leganés, where a few players approached to apologize to the few fans displaced to Butarque.The parakeet set was reborn in Abelardo’s debut Fernández, whose success will be proportional to his ability to recover the best version of many of his players and even the essences of a dying club for almost the entire first round. read more
