She further pledged the D&G Foundation’s continued support of the youngsters’ development.CSJP is a multifaceted crime-prevention programme of the Ministry of National Security being implemented in 50 communities across eight parishes.It focuses on treating with the root causes of violent behaviour among youth by providing a suite of services aimed at reducing their risk of being involved in crime and violence and increasing their ability to become productive citizens. Among the services are case management, counselling, community justice, and monitoring and evaluation.Since its inception in 2001, more than 20,000 youth have benefited from various services, including an employment internship programme.CSJP is funded by the Government of Jamaica, the Inter-American Development Bank, Global Affairs Canada and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development.Phase three, which is the final phase of the programme, will end in 2019.
Francesco Totti has criticised the VAR officials after a 2-2 draw with Inter Milan questioning why they failed to see the penaltyClub legend and director Totti spoke to the media in place of Coach Eusebio Di Francesco after the game.“It was an open game between two great teams who scored four goals, created many more chances, hit the woodwork and were denied a penalty. It was very exciting,” the director told Football Italia.The reference was to an incident 30 seconds before the opening Inter goal, when Danilo D’Ambrosio clearly tripped Nicolò Zaniolo just inside the penalty area.The remarkable element is that Fabbri in the VAR booth did not alert referee Gianluca Rocchi to the foul or ask him to view it again.Capello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“Everyone saw it, there’s no need to describe. I want to know, and we all do, how those in the VAR booth didn’t see that foul. We all saw it on a far smaller screen. It’s shameful.“Why don’t you call them and ask how they didn’t see that? This is precisely what VAR was introduced for. Rocchi might’ve seen it or not, but that’s not the issue. The VAR officials had to see it. Fabbri was watching another game on his screen, evidently.“We cannot go on like this. There are meetings, we go here and there to discuss how VAR is used, when and in what way, then it’s not used on an incident like this?“That’s not because it’s Roma, it could happen to any club. It’s impossible. Someone ought to call Fabbri and ask: ‘What were you looking at?’ It’s all fine to laugh and joke, but this is serious.“We’re not seeking alibis, but this changes the game. We could’ve taken the lead, moments later Inter score. It changes the entire match and that can change an entire season.”

Google announced new features for local business profiles. Getty Google wants to become the go-to hub for people searching for restaurants or other local businesses. The search giant on Thursday announced new features to revamp business profiles on Google Maps and search. Those are the pages that give you a restaurant’s rating, a snapshot at popular dishes and general information like store hours or the restaurant’s phone number.Now, business owners will be able to customize the cover photo you see at the top of the profile. Owners will also get to pick a new “short name” URL that customers can use to share the business profile with other people. Businesses can also reward people who follow them on Google by offering them exclusive deals. And the businesses that are most responsive to customers and keep their profiles up to date will be able to earn badges and receive a “local favorite” distinction.Google is letting businesses do more to customize their profiles. Google Google is also offering store owners more options for window stickers, like one that says “Review us on Google,” and another that says, “Follow us on Google.””When we first started mapping out the world, we were first focused on getting users from point A to point B,” Bhavesh Mehta, a Google vice president of engineering, said at a press event in San Francisco. “Over time, we saw people wanted more information about businesses.”The new features take aim at other local business services like Yelp, which also offers business profiles with ratings and other information. Yelp has long been antagonistic towards Google’s local business efforts, arguing that Google abuses its dominance to prioritize its own listings and services over those of competitors. Google wouldn’t directly address the competition with Yelp, but said it’s focused on creating a good experience for users.The new features are part of Google’s push to make Maps about more than just navigation. Last year, Google announced features to make the app more social, such as a “for you” tab that offers tailored recommendations and a “match score” to tell you how much you might like a restaurant or business. Business profiles that you follow will show up in the “for you” tab. Google also said last month it’s bringing food ordering to Maps, search and its Google Assistant software by partnering with delivery services including DoorDash and Postmates. 1 Google Search gets AR, and Google Lens wants to be your… Tags Now playing: Watch this: Comment Share your voice 4:19 Mobile Google Alphabet Inc.
