They will be playing their first qualifier on June 10 away to Burkina Faso in Ouagadougou.Football Kenya Federation chief Nick Mwendwa speaking to local website Soka has confirmed that the federation is considering taking the team to Rwanda to play in the annual Peace Tournament.“Angola has informed us that they will be in Portugal for training and therefore not be able to honor the friendly in Kenya. We are now looking at other options including playing in the Rwanda (Genocide Memorial) tournament,” he said.FKF communications officer Barry Otieno has also confirmed the federation is working round the clock to see to it that they secure a friendly.“The peace tournament is one of the options and we are also talking to a few FAs. The challenge is that the time is too short but we will try all we can. If it will be impossible we will stick to preparing for Sierra Leone,” Otieno said.Head coach Stanley Okumbi had already summoned a squad of 26 local based players for the home tie and they had been scheduled to report to camp on Sunday after the last fixtures of the Kenyan Premier League.Harambee Stars is scheduled to play their first 2019 AFCON qualification match away to Sierra Leone in Freetown on June 10 and the Angola friendly would have been ideal for the local lads to fight for a spot in the AFCON team.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars group photo before their friendly match against DR Congo on March 26 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Williams understands what players like USC offensive tackle Winston Justice, tailback LenDale White and safety Darnell Bing are going through this week as they make their decisions whether to turn pro or return for their senior seasons. “It’s real simple. Agents are going to tell you what sounds best because they want your business,” Williams said. “And your family will too, they know if you have money, they get things. It’s about how educated you are and how much common sense you have. Perhaps no player is more equipped to advise USC’s underclassmen whether to turn pro than former Trojans wide receiver Mike Williams, who was forced to sit out a season by the NCAA before being drafted last year by the Detroit Lions. “People say you can’t listen to Mike Williams’ advice, look at him,” Williams said. “Or, ‘Mike is an idiot.’ But who else got two go-rounds at this? And I was still a top-10 pick.” “A lot of young guys, myself included, do well at the college level and get sick of it,” Williams said. “And think they can do well on Sundays.” Williams said Bush and White are ready for the NFL and believes Bing will impress teams with his workouts if he goes pro. But he believes Justice should return for another season because of off-field troubles that led to the offensive tackle being suspended for the 2004 season. “With Winston, another year wouldn’t hurt,” he said. “One year and out is not the best thing. No matter how silly the things are that got him in trouble, people will look at it. Once you turn pro, all you will hear from teams is how bad you are the next few weeks.” Williams also warned the underclassmen that their lives become all business once they make the leap to the NFL. “You miss being around your college teammates and drinking and having noon classes that you can get up at 11 for. There’s a certain amount of freedom,” he said. “In the NFL you’re getting up at 6 a.m. There is so much more responsibility. It’s so live-or-die and how well-off you will be.” Scott Wolf, (818) 713-3607 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Williams admitted he got upset with Carroll before making his decision to turn pro two years ago. “The only person I really talked to in the whole process was Coach Carroll,” Williams said. “What made it hard for me was Coach Carroll and I got into it. Just about anything. “He sat me down in his office for an hour and told me everything. I’m this and I’m that. He chewed me for an hour. Everything he said was almost true. That was one of the reasons it was so hard. I had a lot going on. At the time, I thought he doesn’t care anyways.” Williams said the biggest temptation for underclassmen is the feeling they are too good for college football.

By Paul LeckerSports ReporterWESTON – Even in defeat, there is no questioning the Marshfield girls basketball team’s collective grit, guts and determination.After two tight playoff victories the Tigers’ magic came to an end Saturday as they lost to Appleton North 56-54 in a WIAA Division 1 girls basketball sectional final at D.C. Everest High School.Marshfield’s McKayla Scheuer searches for an open teammate during the Tigers’ WIAA Division 1 sectional final against Appleton North on Saturday at D.C. Everest High School. The Tigers lost 56-54.Marshfield (23-3) battled back from a 12-point deficit in the second half to take a one-point lead late but a basket by Callie Pohlman with 11 seconds to go was enough to give North the victory.Appleton North (22-4) advances to its first WIAA state tournament since 2001 where it will take on Verona (23-3) in a Division 1 semifinal Friday night at the Resch Center in Green Bay.Following Pohlman’s basket, Marshfield raced down court and fed the ball to Ema Fehrenbach, who had her shot blocked out of bounds with 5 seconds to go.After a timeout, Marshfield got the ball to McKayla Scheuer, who found Fehrenbach on a roll to the basket, but it was a split-second too late. Fehrenbach made the basket, however the horn had already sounded.“She got open late – one more second and it’s good,” Marshfield coach Heidi Michaelis said. “You want the ball with Ema going to the left side finishing. Appleton North covered it well and knew what it was. You always like to get a shot off at least and when you don’t it’s kind of hard.”Marshfield led for most of the first half – by as much as five at two spots – before North went on a 13-3 run during the final 5:42 to take a 31-24 lead. Kari Brekke, who led North with 18 points, scored seven in the run.North built its lead to 44-32 after a basket by Anna Laux, a 3-pointer from Sydney Levy, and a transition layup by Grace Garvey with 12:10 to go.Marshfield, which fought back from late deficits in its two previous playoff wins against Eau Claire North and Neenah, did it again.“We were turning the ball over, getting one shot and done, stopped being aggressive,” Michaelis said. “We took a timeout and it was simply a matter of saying, ‘This is the way we’re going to end our season but just going away? Not doing what we had been doing to get us to this point?’ They kind of got mad. They played that last eight minutes with a ‘what do we have to do attitude’ and played more freely.”A 3-pointer from Scheuer and baskets by Fehrenbach and Hannah Meverden sparked a 13-2 run that got the Tigers back in it.Marshfield’s Maddie Nikolai drives in for a shot attempt during the Tigers loss to Appleton North on Saturday in a WIAA Division 1 sectional final at D.C. Everest High School.North went nearly 8 minutes without a field goal as Marshfield cut it to 46-45 on another Meverden hoop.Meg Bryan, who had a team-high 17 points, hit her fourth and fifth 3-pointers of the game to give Marshfield’s its first lead of the second half at 51-50 with 3:55 left.After two North free throws, Meverden hit another jumper and the Tigers led 53-52 with 2:28 remaining.That was the Tigers’ last made basket and lead of the game. Levy, who had 14 points, scored on a drive to the hoop with 1:56 left, and neither team scored for more than a minute.Fehrenbach made one of two free throws to tie the game with 48.8 seconds left before Pohlman hit her game-winner.“This hurts to lose this game because you’re so close, especially by two points on the last possession, but that’s the team – the way they ended those last eight minutes – (they) did that all year,” Michaelis said. “It says a lot about them. They believed to the very end that this was their time to go to state and we just came up a possession short.”Scheuer finished with 14 points and six rebounds, Fehrenbach had 11 points and six rebounds, and Meverden had nine points and eight boards for the Tigers, who won a school-record 23 games this season.(Hub City Times Sports Reporter Paul Lecker is also the publisher of MarshfieldAreaSports.com.)Lightning 56, Tigers 54Marshfield 24 30 – 54Appleton North 31 25 – 56MARSHFIELD (54): McKayla Scheuer 5-12 1-1 14, Meg Bryan 6-13 0-0 17, Sara Dasler 0-1 0-0 0, Jenna Jakobi 0-0 0-0 0, Maddie Nikolai 1-5 1-2 3, Ema Fehrenbach 3-9 5-7 11, Hannah Meverden 4-7 1-2 9.

Witnesses to shoplifting and employee theft behavior can sometimes provide valuable details about the incident to investigators. But are those details necessarily accurate?How much stock can we put into the information recounted by a witness? Are they remembering everything that they observed? How does memory work, anyway?For the Interviewing column in the January-February 2019 issue of LP Magazine, David E. Zulawski, CFI, CFE, and Shane G. Sturman, CFI, CPP, take a closer look at the evaluation of memory processes as they relate to the witnessing of an event or incident. According to the authors, most researchers classify the development of memories as occurring in three stages: the acquisition stage, the retention stage, and the retrieval stage. The column expands on each of these:- Sponsor – Acquisition Stage. When a witness first observes an event, only some of the details are observed and stored as part of the subsequent memory. The witness has to determine based on their observations which details are worth remembering based on where their eyes were focused and which details might be important later in deciding what to do.Retention Stage. The retention stage is the time between the observation of the event and recalling the details observed. The retention period could be a matter of moments or a much longer period of time depending on the witness’s need to talk about the actions. The retention stage of the observation can be affected when the witness is privy to new information. This new information could be provided by other witnesses to the event, media reporting, the interviewer’s questioning the witness, or a variety of other sources.Retrieval Stage. This part of the memory can be one of the more difficult components since the memory is not stored in one particular location in the brain but rather spread throughout the brain and linked in many different ways using our senses. The accuracy of the witness’s information retrieval can be affected in all three of these areas. If the witness failed to observe a particular detail of the event, there is no memory of it, but questions posed may infer information that taints the retention. The other issue is the words used by the witness to describe the situation and the interviewer’s assumptions of what they mean.Beyond these three stages, however, additional elements like time elapsed, frequency of experience, and relevant details also come into play in the formation of memory. The authors touch on all of these and more. They also dig into even more complex questions: how does memory work when stress and certain expectations and cultural biases are present?

CCH Tax Day ReportThe Oklahoma Supreme Court has found insufficient and has rewritten the ballot question contained in Initiative Petition No. 403 (State Question No. 779), concerning whether to increase the state sales and use tax by 1% to fund education. The question is scheduled to appear on the November 8, 2016, ballot. The supreme court previously held that the initiative petition embraces one general subject and does not violate Okla. Const. Art. 24, §1. (TAXDAY, 2016/01/14, S.31) The question was originally written as follows:“This measure adds a new Article to the Oklahoma Constitution. The new article creates a limited purpose fund to improve public education. It levies a one cent sales and use tax to provide revenue for the fund. It allocates funds for specific institutions and purposes related to the improvement of public education, such as increasing teacher salaries, addressing teacher shortages, programs to improve reading in early grades, to increase high school graduation rates, college and career readiness, and college affordability, improving higher education and career technology education, and increasing access to voluntary early learning opportunities for low-income and at-risk children. It requires an annual audit of school districts’ use of monies from the fund. It prohibits school districts’ use of these funds for administrative salaries. It provides for an increase in teacher salaries. It requires that monies from the fund not supplant or replace other education funding. The Article takes effects [sic] on the July 1 after its passage.”The state attorney general rewrote the question on the basis that it (1) failed to explain that the 1% tax would be in addition to the current 4.5% state sales and use tax rate, (2) inaccurately suggested that allocated funds would partially be used to improve college affordability when they might not be so used, (3) failed to explain that the increase in teacher salaries requires that the salaries be raised by at least $5,000; and (4) inaccurately stated that it prohibited school districts from using the funds to increase administrative salaries when it only prohibited increases in superintendent salaries and the addition of superintendent positions. The rewrite was as follows:“This measure adds a new Article to the Oklahoma Constitution. The new Article creates a limited purpose fund to improve public education. To provide revenue for the fund, the state sales and use tax are increased by one cent. It allocates funds for purposes related to the improvement of public education, such as increasing teacher salaries, addressing teacher shortages, programs to improve reading in early grades, increasing high school graduation rates, and college and career readiness. It also allocates funds for improving higher education, improving career and technology education, and increasing access to voluntary early learning opportunities for low income and at-risk children. It requires that the teacher salary increases funded by this measure raise teacher salaries by at least $5,000 over the salaries paid in the year prior to adoption of this measure. It requires an annual audit of school districts’ use of monies from the fund. It prohibits school districts’ use of these funds for increasing superintendents’ salaries or adding superintendent positions. It requires that monies from the fund not supplant or replace other educational funding. The Article takes effect on the July 1 after its passage.”Upon the current review before the supreme court, the petitioners objected to both the gist of the measure in the pamphlets already circulated for signatures, and to the attorney general’s rewrite. The court found the gist of the measure acceptable because under current law, objections after pamphlets have been circulated for signatures can only relate to the validity or number of signatures or to a challenge to the ballot question. Further, the court found that the legislative intent shows that the sufficiency of the petition or the gist is not challengeable post-circulation. However, the court found the attorney general’s rewrite insufficient in that (1) it was misleading in not mentioning the State Board of Equalization’s role in limiting appropriations, (2) it needed clarification regarding the amount of the sales and use tax and its allocation, and (3) it exceed the statutory 200-word maximum. The court rewrote the question as follows:“This measure adds a new Article to the Oklahoma Constitution. The article creates a limited purpose fund to increase funding for public education. It increases State sales and use taxes by one cent per dollar to provide revenue for the fund. The revenue to be used for public education shall be allocated: 69.50% for common school districts, 19.25% for the institutions under the authority of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, 3.25% for the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education, and 8% for the State Department of Education. It requires teacher salary increases funded by this measure raise teacher salaries by at least $5,000 over the salaries paid in the year prior to adoption of this measure. It requires an annual audit of school districts’ use of monies. It prohibits school districts’ use of these funds for increasing superintendents’ salaries or adding superintendent positions. It requires that monies from the fund not supplant or replace other educational funding. If the Oklahoma Board of Equalization determines funding has been replaced, the Legislature may not make any appropriations until the amount of replaced funding is returned to the fund. The article takes effect on July 1 after its passage.”OCPA Impact, Inc. v. Sheehan, Oklahoma Supreme Court, No. 115108, July 18, 2016, ¶201-202Other References:Explanations at ¶89-054
