Welcome to Notary Public Day!
Notary Public Day was first celebrated in 1975, and was created to "recognize notaries for their public service and their contributions to national and international commerce." Notaries are trusted public officials who perform a number of tasks to help society function, often by serving as impartial witnesses to commercial and private transactions, bringing certainty and integrity to the transactions. Typically, notaries public are involved in the signing of documents, where they attest to the identity of signers, acknowledge the signers' comprehension of the document and willingness to sign it, and make sure that the contents of the documents are true. Notaries then usually complete a "notarial certificate" that they sign, and often seal, which attests to the legitimacy of the signed document. Besides this function, a notary may be authorized to administer oaths and affirmations, make attested photocopies, issue protests of notes and bills, witness the opening of safety deposit boxes and certify their contents, issue subpoenas, or perform civil marriage ceremonies. The scope of the notary's duties is determined by the rules of the state they work in.

Brissett scores 20, No. 16 Syracuse beats E Washington 66-34 :: WRALSportsFan.com (wralsportsfan.com; AP; Frank)
Oshae Brissett had 20 points and eight rebounds, No. 16 Syracuse held Eastern Washington to 22 percent shooting, and the Orange overpowered the Eagles 66-34 Tuesday night in the season opener for both teams.
The Eagles' output was the lowest since the Carrier Dome opened in 1980.
Eight players scored for Syracuse, which played without starting point guard Frank Howard. Bourama Sidibe and Tyus Battle each had eight, while Marek Dolezaj, Jalen Carey and Elijah Hughes had seven apiece.
Tyler Kidd led the Eagles with nine points. Jack Perry, the Eagles leading 3-point shooter a year ago, had three points and shot 1 of 4 from 3.
Syracuse scored 33 points off 19 Eastern Washington turnovers. The Eagles were no match for the Orange, with no player taller than 6-foot-7.
Both teams were cold from 3. Syracuse, which ranked last in 3-point shooting in the ACC last season, hit 3 of 17 while the Orange defense held the Eagles to 6 of 35.
The game was tied at 5 when Syracuse went on a 23-5 run to end the first half with a 28-10 lead. Never threatened, the Orange continued to dominate with an 18-3 blitz to start the second.
The Eagles shot 4-of-23 in the first half and missed 11 field goal attempts in a row. The Orange weren't much better, hitting 37 percent. The Eagles' 10 points in the first half marked the lowest in the Carrier Dome since Colgate's eight in 2010.

A quick take on Syracuse’s 66-34 win over Eastern Washington to open the 2018-19 season:
WHAT HAPPENED: After Austin Fadal’s jumper pulled Eastern Washington to within 11-8 with 13:49 to go in the first half, Syracuse went on a 12-0 capped by an Oshae Brissett 3-pointer with 4:20 left before intermission. A 14-0 run early in the second half with several thunderous Brissett dunks put the Orange up 48-13 with 15:24 to go, and the rout was on from there.
ANALYSIS: Syracuse pressed throughout the night and held the Eagles to 22.4 percent shooting from the field and 6-34 from downtown. That ties the fewest points that Syracuse has ever given up in a game, a mark set when SU held Montana to the same number 2013 NCAA Tournament. But Orange head coach Jim Boeheim has plenty to lament about from his own team. The Orange shot just 39 percent from the field and went 3-16 from beyond the arc. During a halftime interview, Boeheim mentioned that EWU was mostly missing its shots as opposed the Orange executing its defense. He made his point clear in the second half, sending all five starters back into the game with 7:47 to go and the Orange winning 60-24.
HERO: Howard Washington saw his first action since he tore his ACL in January. He checked in for Tyus Battle midway through the second half and received a warm ovation from the crowd, contributing three rebounds in his return. Brissett led the way with 20 points and 8 rebounds.
Eastern Washington: The Eagles knew they had huge shoes to fill with the graduation of leading scorer and Big Sky MVP Bogdan Bliznyuk, and that was reinforced against the Orange. The Eagles need someone to step up - and quickly.
Syracuse University men's basketball guard Tyus Battle talks to syracuse.com's Brent Axe about returning for his junior season. Tyus describes what the Orange are capable of this season and why he is still taking a bunch of 8 a.m. classes as a junior.
