Milan dropped to 12th place.FILE – In this Saturday, March 2, 2019 file photo, AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek, foreground, and Sassuolo’s Merih Demiral vie for the ball during their Serie A soccer match at the San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy.

Inter, on the other hand, is in fourth and has won only one of its past three league matches.And Icardi is unlikely to play this time.The Argentine forward has not been on the field in more than a month, since being stripped off his captaincy amid protracted contract negotiations. The 26-year-old Icardi has said he has a knee injury, although the club has said that tests have not revealed any particular problem.“His absence over the past few weeks means that he’s not at full fitness, however, these are things that the coach will eventually consider,” Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta said when asked if Icardi would be available for the derby. “We must remain calm and manage things rationally. It would be a great failure if we would have to go through legal means.”FILE – In this Sunday, Oct. 21, 2018 file photo, Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi, right, tries to score over AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma during the Serie A soccer match between Inter Milan and AC Milan at the San Siro Stadium, in Milan, Italy.

(AP Photo/Antonio Calanni, File)Milan’s turnaround can at least partly be attributed to Krzysztof Piatek. The Poland forward has scored eight goals since arriving from Genoa in January. But shoring up the defense has also been crucial.Alessio Romagnoli, who was partly to blame for Icardi’s goal last time, has been touted as the future of the Italian national team’s defense. He was handed the Milan captaincy at the start of the season when he was only 24.“I really like him as a captain. He’s a focused and solid guy and he shows that with his behavior,” said former Milan captain Franco Baresi, who helped the team win six Serie A titles and three European Cups as a defender as well as winning the World Cup with the Italy.FILE – In this Saturday, March 2, 2019 file photo, AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek fires a shot past Sassuolo’s Francesco Magnanelli during the Serie A soccer match between AC Milan and Sassuolo, at the San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy.

It was right to give the captain’s armband to him. Imposing oneself at Milan at his age is not easy.”Piatek and Romangnoli, who turned 25 in January, could be leading Milan back into the Champions League after a five-year absence.Inter still has a chance, too, but a loss for on Sunday coupled with a Roma victory at relegation-threatened Spal would leave the two teams level on points, closely followed by a number of other sides.The top four from Serie A qualify for next season’s Champions League.By: Daniella Matar, Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Five of 650 participants in the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) 2018 summer internship programme have been offered permanent jobs, following the programme’s conclusion.They are Pauline Nelson, who has been employed to Suretime Emergency Medical Services; Shamari Drysdale, at Stand Up for Jamaica (SUFJ); Mickelle Hall at Money Masters Limited; Trudi-Ann Cunningham, at the Jamaica Observer, and Bianca Cummings, at Eden Gardens Wellness Resort and Spa.Other summer interns were offered part-time placements, while others were given extensions based on their levels of impact during their period of engagement.An awards ceremony was held at the Courtleigh Auditorium in New Kingston on August 28 to single out approximately 90 of them deserving of special awards.In his address to the interns at the ceremony, Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, said the aim of the programme was “to give them an experience that would help define (them) and create a purpose”.“It is not just about enabling you to get a stipend, a salary and remuneration to assist you to buy books or provide some basic creature comforts. The purpose is to create character and build integrity, to be given a task and to complete it well,” he said.The Minister emphasised that investment must be made in the “human capital” and in the “enhancement of the human capacity”, as the people are “Jamaica’s richest resources”.It is for that reason that the Ministry invested approximately $53 million in the internship programme to “enable more people… to deliver more”, the Minister said.“Young people, the future for you is not to be what you are, it is to be what you must become. It is to grow beyond your moment and to accept that what you do today is only to make tomorrow a better experience for you,” Mr. Bartlett advised.In his remarks, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Suretime Emergency Medical, Dr. André McDonald, hailed the internship programme and urged the Minister to ensure “it is replicated in larger companies in Jamaica”.Suretime has partnered with the TEF over the last five years and took four interns this year in the areas of pharmacology, nursing, customer service and human resource.Head of the Summer Internship Programme, Diane Brown-Allen, said that this year, the internship programme saw the largest cohort of participants in its 11-year existence.She explained that it was made possible due to an increase in the budget, the duration of the periods of employment offered to the interns to give each of them a chance, and the partnership forged with 11 new companies.For next year, she informed that plans are in the offing to partner with the Abilities Foundation and to include more wards of the State.During the ceremony, Jared Braham and Kerone Ross were awarded prizes for being Top Boy and Top Girl, respectively, in the programme.last_img read more
