“We are talking to some people in Turkey and some in Asia to see the possibility of giving the team an opportunity to train there for two or three weeks because they have better facilities than us. It will be a great avenue for the team to gel especially with new players we want to bring on board and I hope that will be the beginning of new things to come,” Obiny disclosed.“We have been going round talking to other clubs on how they have succeeded and whether we can borrow a leaf from them. They have enlightened us on what we should do and we are trying with our little resources to see what we can achieve.”This will be the first time in a long time a Kenyan club will be going out of the continent for a training camp. This year, Tusker had their pre-season camp in Uganda where they played against several top flight sides, one factor that has been credited for their success this season.Obiny has admitted it will be tough for them next season especially defending their titles, but remains confident the team has the ability to do it.-Preparations-Tusker FC head coach Paul Nkata with the Kenyan Premier League trophy.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaHead Coach Paul Nkata believes the side’s performance in 2017 will be hugely dependant on how well they will have prepared.“It is a tough call next season for us. Definitely, we have to prepare better and having camps outside the country is a huge thing for the club. Hopefully we will be better with that kind of training,” Nkata added.Meanwhile, the club has landed their first transfer acquisition with out-of-contract Thika United defender Vincent Omumbo joining the Ruaraka based club on a two-year deal. The club is also chasing for the signature of Ugandan midfielder Sadam Juma who plays at Express FC.“We have held talks with the club and though there is nothing concrete at the moment, I am positive we will have fruitful talks in the coming days. He is a very good midfielder, aggressive and with a keen eye on goal. I know he is going to be a huge signing for us if we get him,” Obiny said.-Ssempala to Vietnam-Tusker FC players celebrate Shafik Batambuze’s winner at the Afraha Stadium in nakuru.

Obiny says if the player who joined Tusker in June impresses his suitors, then they will give him an opportunity to leave.The club is also in search of a striker with sources close to Capital Sport intimating they are directing their eyes to West Africa.“We need a very good striker who can complement Allan Wanga. I think that was one area last season in which we struggled in a bit. We are not intending to sign many players. Just three and we are good to go. Overall we have a very good squad,” the official complemented.He also added they will give head coach Nkata everything he requires to make the team stronger, adding they kept faith in him when nobody else gave him a chance when he was hired from Muhoroni Youth in January.“No one gave him a chance when he came and everyone was saying he cannot make it. We talked to him and assured him of our support and that is why we are where we are today,” Obiny added.The team is expected to resume training on December 27.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tusker FC team lifting the 2016 Kenyan Premier title after beating Gor Mahia 1-0 on the final day at the Nyayo National Stadium.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 9 – Kenyan Premier League and GOtv Shield champions Tusker FC are planning for a pre-season training camp in Europe or Asia as they prepare for a return to the CAF Champions League next season as well as the defence of their twin titles.Tusker Chief Executive Officer Charles Obiny disclosed to Capital Sport they are in talks with several clubs as they seek to move an inch higher and give the players a tougher and better stage of training ahead of an expected uphill season.
The Gabon hot-shot has now scored seven times in his last three games and has seven Champions League goals in as many matches this season.He is on 28 goals for the season as Dortmund reached the last eight in Europe for the first time since 2013/14.But it fell to US international Pulisic, who only turns 19 in September, to net the Germans’ crucial second on 59 minutes, which put Dortmund ahead for the first time on aggregate.Pulisic, in for injured Germany winger Marco Reus, claimed his first Champions League goal and set up Aubameyang’s opening goal in an impressive all-round display.After Kostas Mitroglou sealed Benfica’s 1-0 first-leg victory, Dortmund took just four minutes to cancel out the advantage.Ousmane Dembele’s corner was flicked on by Pulisic to Aubameyang, who headed home at the far post to delight the sell-out Signal Iduna Park crowd.It was redemption for the Gabon striker, who had a night to forget in the first leg, missing four clear chances including a penalty in Lisbon.After a strong start from the hosts, Benfica clawed their way back with captain Luisao heading straight at Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki from a free-kick midway through the half.Dembele showed his youth, needlessly picking up a booking from English referee Martin Atkinson late in the first half for bitterly complaining after conceding a free-kick with a push on Andreas Samaris.Benfica grew in confidence as the half wore on and Dortmund’s defence wobbled, but it finished 1-0 at the break.Dortmund had a big let-off soon after when Lukasz Piszczek failed with a clearance, which Franco Cervi snapped up on the edge of the box, but his shot was blocked.Aubameyang then squandered three golden chances at close range before Pulisic finally got the breakthrough.The US starlet chipped his shot over the advancing Ederson on 59 minutes after Piszczek’s superb pass into the area.Aubameyang grabbed his second just two minutes later when he stabbed home Marcel Schmelzer’s pass.He hit his third goal of the night on 85 minutes when Erik Durm’s run and cross from the right handed him a simple tap-in.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dortmund’s forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (L) celebrates scoring the opening goal with his teammates during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, 2nd-leg football match Borussia Dortmund v SL Benfica in Dortmund, western Germany on March 8, 2017© dpa/AFP Bernd ThissenDORTMUND, Germany, March 8 – A hat-trick by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Christian Pulisic’s dazzling display fired Borussia Dortmund into the Champions League quarter-finals with a 4-0 thrashing of Benfica on Wednesday.The result saw Dortmund win the round-of-16 tie 4-1 on aggregate after Aubameyang’s early goal cancelled out Borussia’s 1-0 defeat in Lisbon last month.
Osmond contended that SAG collected the funding on behalf of himself and other actors without obtaining their permission. The actor who played Eddie Haskell on TV’s “Leave It to Beaver” is suing the Screen Actors Guild, claiming the union is sitting on $8.1 million it collected from foreign royalties and should distribute to actors. The suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court by Ken Osmond accused SAG of unjust enrichment and violations of the state’s business code. It seeks class-action status on behalf of at least 30,000 actors and others. A call to a SAG spokeswoman seeking comment was not immediately returned Wednesday. Osmond contends that since at least 1996, SAG has collected royalties for use of TV and movie productions outside the U.S. in the form of levies for video rentals, private copying, cable transmissions and other uses of the productions. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MONTEBELLO – Montebello city officials underwent a mandatory ethics class recently as part of a new law aimed at curbing local government corruption. Otherwise known as the “Sunshine Law,” AB 1234 was authored by state Assemblyman Simon Salinas in an effort to shed light on the activities of local government and to educate officials on the current rules of ethics. “There was no requirement for folks in special districts or local government to receive ethics training when they were appointed or elected,” said Frank Molina, chief of staff for Salinas. “What prompted it was that here some members of the Sacramento Suburban Water District misused taxpayers’ money. Some were criminally prosecuted. “A lot of cities provide guidelines, but no requirements for training. Even if a lot of it is common sense, if they don’t know the rules, then we need legislation to provide those guidelines.” The three main areas addressed by the law include compensation to government officials for attending meetings, restrictions on business-related expenses, and provisions for providing ethics training sessions. For example, Montebello’s March 1 study session reviewed ethics issues such as conflict-of-interest laws, gifts and honoraria, use of public funds, competitive bidding issues and rules for mass mailings. The session was conducted by City Attorney Marco Martinez and his associate Daniel Ballin, both from the Best Best and Kreiger law firm, which is training officials from 25 area cities and several water and community service districts. In attendance were all five council members, the city administrator and all 21 city commissioners. The new law does not change California’s 1953 Ralph M. Brown Act, which addresses the public’s participation and access to local and county government activities, said Molina. What’s new is the requirement that officials in all “legislative bodies” be trained on the details of the Brown Act and rules about the appropriate use of public money. The training must be completed by the end of this year, he said. Once local officials have received training this year, they must complete refresher courses once every two years, said Ballin. Officials whose terms will expire this year are exempt. The Brown Act defines legislative bodies as governing bodies, or any board, commission or committee created by formal action of the governing body. “Basically, it looked at abuses and inappropriate expenditures by city officials,” said Councilman Bill Molinari. “I think it’s totally appropriate. “For a while, we had people racking up cell phone bills of hundreds of dollars. It’s just common sense to eliminate those things. City council members don’t need a city paid cell phone.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029
