Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has declared that the penalty VAR awarded to France was wrongly given during their 2018 World Cup final match against Croatia on Sunday.During the match, Referee Nestor Pitana had first missed Ivan Perisic’s handball inside the France box, but the official opted the award the spot-kick following a VAR review.Perisic’s view seemed to be blocked by Blaise Matuidi just before the ball struck the Inter Milan winger’s arm, and Gallagher has believed that it was “100% not a penalty”.Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…“100% not a penalty. He’s far, far too close to the ball as it comes over the forward’s head,” Gallagher told Sky Sports as quoted by Sports Mole.“It just strikes him – he doesn’t move his hand to the ball, he’s got no intention of handling the ball. The law says it has to be deliberate. His arms aren’t in an unorthodox position – it just doesn’t tick any boxes.”Antoine Griezmann netted the penalty to give France a 2-1 lead against Croatia in Moscow, and Les Bleus ultimately claimed the trophy with a 4-2 success over Croatia.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, December 5, 2016 – The Ministry of National Security is providing training for police personnel in conflict resolution in order to better enable them to recognize, deal with and respond to domestic violence. This is in light of statistics, which show that approximately 37 per cent of murders committed in Jamaica stem from domestic incidents.Speaking at a domestic violence/conflict resolution training session at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston today (December 1), Portfolio Minister, Hon. Robert Montague, said the seminar will assist in resolving conflicts and saving lives.He noted that 90 per cent of domestic conflicts result from misunderstandings. “Many times persons are told to go back home and work it out,” he said, noting that without intervention, the conflict can escalate, resulting in hospitalisation or death.Minister Montague said the training will also assist police personnel in providing gender-neutral responses to victims. Reports indicate that while women are the primary victims, a growing number of men are suffering from domestic violence. He said the sessions will also ensure that conflict-resolution personnel are assigned to police stations across the island.In the meantime, he informed that the Ministry has restarted the parish and district consultative committees (DCCs) as a means of supporting the conflict-resolution initiative.The DCCs serve as a forum for raising and addressing problems that are affecting the police and the communities in which they serve, and to identify ways in which citizens can work with the police to resolve the issues.The DCCs will support the work of the parish consultative committees (PCCs) in developing strategies and programmes to promote an improved quality of life at the community level, through coordinated responses to threats to personal and community safety and security. Issues that will be addressed include domestic violence, community and police relationships, effective parenting, truancy and violence in schools, child abuse, voluntarism, youth mentorship, public-order breaches, and drug and alcohol abuse. The training session also facilitated a review of current approaches to responding to domestic violence; discussions on new approaches and methods in support of a localised consultative approach; and certification of community-based policing officers and other key police operatives/first responders, across all police divisions, as domestic violence-prevention coordinators.

2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Tesla 0 Tesla’s Model 3 Performance subtly adds the power Review • Tesla Model 3 Review: Performance trim More about 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance The Tesla Model 3 has been on sale in the US for some time now, but it was never intended to be limited to our amber waves of grain. Now, it’s about time for other parts of the world to get in on the action.This week, Tesla announced that it opened the Model 3’s design studio (the fancy name for its car configurator) to the public in China and certain left-hand-drive European countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Previously, only those who put down cash money on a deposit were eligible to access to the design studio. Now it’s available to anybody who’s interested in learning more about Model 3 configurations. The Model 3’s rollout in the US was similar — reservation holders got the first crack at configuring cars before the greater public had a chance.Right now, it appears that buyers in these new markets are limited to just two Model 3 variants — the Model 3 Performance and the Model 3 Long-Range (with AWD). It’s unclear when or if Europe and China will receive other variants such as the mid-range Model 3 currently available in the US.According to Electrek, initial Model 3 deliveries for non-US markets are currently scheduled to start in February for reservation holders, with new orders set to reach their owners in March. Bloomberg reports that Tesla has yet to receive the full sign-off from European authorities to sell the Model 3 there, but Bloomberg’s source says the company isn’t worried and that its current schedule should work out just fine. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Tags Share your voice Tesla Electric Cars Car Industry Post a comment More From Roadshow 49 Photos Preview • 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance: The future, quicker 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better

Monarch Academy, a Baltimore charter school, has begun working with Morgan State University in order to introduce its students to higher education. With two programs, ASHE and College Explorers, Monarch provides its students with emotional and academic support while also exposing them to positive example of higher education.Students at Baltimore’s Monarch Academy work with mentors from Morgan State University. (Photo by Janneh G. Johnson)Yoeanna Ambrose, a teacher at Monarch Academy and the program coordinator, spoke to the AFRO about her relationship with the program. Monarch Academy is a series of charter schools in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. operated by TranZed Alliance, a Baltimore based non-profit focused on kids with special needs. The Morgan State University Office of Community Service coordinates the College Explorers and ASHE with Monarch Academy. Brittany Laws is Morgan’s program coordinator.“Morgan currently offers a program called College Explorers to our students which takes place four times a week. Morgan buses students to and from Monarch Academy and the students visit Morgan to get academic support and shadow a student. ASHE is for the students who can’t go to Morgan State for various reasons so that the mentors can be brought to them.”The College Explore program began earlier this year and the students who have been a part of it have experienced less behavioral and academic issues while also exposing students to the realities of college life and sparking an interest in higher education, according to Ambrose.The average ASHE day includes 2 hours where the students are tutored by their mentors in either math or reading and time for the students to discuss other things as well, such as personal problems or other academic subjects.“A lot of my kids learn lessons from their mentors that effect their performance, like one of my eighth-grade girls had a conversation with her mentor about the school to prison pipeline and how standardized testing plays a part in negative stereotypes and funding and she said that she wanted to put her best foot forward on the state exams so it wouldn’t be said that Baltimore students can’t read or aren’t intelligent due to a lack of effort.”Kai Innam, a senior at Morgan State who has worked with the ASHE program plans to continue mentoring even after graduating.“I’ve been working with the program for about ten weeks and I’m so hopeful that this will impact the kids in a positive way because this is something I want to do past my graduation. I want to keep helping these kids because they’re amazing, they just need to have someone by their side showing them support. That one on one attention boosts their confidence and that helps their performance,” Innam told the AFRO.“It’s a give and take experience. I’ve learned patience and I’ve learned to be more understanding and I really have a new appreciation for teaching kids at the middle school level.”Myonna Simpkins, an eighth-grade student enrolled at Monarch Academy, plans to pursue her Doctoral degree, and become an OB-GYN and believes that this program will help her do so.“I’ve learned a lot about the positive parts of college and the do’s and don’ts. Our mentors aren’t that much older than us so I’ll be going through the same things they’re going through. I want to become the same things that they want to become,” Simpkins said.
