first_img Côte d’IvoireAfrica to go further Receive email alerts Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election October 29, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders asked on the Force Licorne to conduct an enquiry and publicly explain the circumstances of Antoine Massé’s death, on the morning of 7 November, during clashes between the Ivorian army, demonstrators and members of the French peacekeeping force. A local correspondent for Le Courrier d’Abidjan, a daily that supports President Laurent Gbagbo, was killed on the morning of 7 November during clashes between the Ivorian army, demonstrators and members of the French peacekeeping “Force Licorne,” Reporters Without Borders confirmed today.The newspaper reported that journalist Antoine Massé, who was also a literature teacher, was fatally shot as he was covering a demonstration aimed at blocking the eastward advance of the French troops from Man towards Abidjan.A communique released by the Ivorian Defence and Security Forces (FDS) said three soldiers, a policeman, a customs official and three civilians were killed on 7 November when French troops opened fired in the Duékoué “corridor” at Duékoué and Dibobly. An FDS spokesman, Lt. Col. Jules Yao Yao, confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that Massé was one of the civilian victims.A Force Licorne detachment that had left from Man found the road blocked on the morning of 7 November and opened fire in order to clear the way.”The death of a journalist is to be taken seriously,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the Force Licorne to conduct an enquiry and publicly explain the circumstances of Antoine Massé’s death.”The organisation also appealed to journalists to take extra care. “With this level of confusion, a journalist should in particular identify himself clearly.”The staff of Le Courrier d’Abidjan said Massé was shot in the head and the heart. Deputy editor William Varlet Asia told Reporters Without Borders that he spoke to Massé by telephone a few hours before he was killed, and had reiterated to him the security precautions he should take.The day before Massé was killed, Lazare Ahua, a cameraman with RadioTélévision Ivoirienne (RTI), sustained bullet injuries to the feet as he was filming a counter-strike by French helicopter gun ships at Tiébissou, in the centre of the country, following an Ivorian air force attack on French positions in Bouaké in which nine French soldiers were killed.

You Need To Know A Few TricksHerbeautyHerbeauty Business News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Top of the News As we prepare to watch the USA compete in the winter Olympics this month, let’s take a journey into the life of young Olympic hopefuls as they strive to one day compete in the Olympics. In addition to a strong desire and ambition to succeed, it takes juggling friends and family, school, training and competing commitments to make these kids successful. And don’t forget the support of their parents.Figure SkatingKamryn Coffey, age 16, is a competitive figure skater who trains six days a week, four to seven hours a day. She begins her days early, skating from 6:30 to 8:30am. Then it’s off to school at Halstrom Academy where she attends three days a week, then it’s back to the rink for another two to five more hours of training. In addition to a busy training schedule comes a hectic travel schedule for competition. “With my skating, I travel a lot,” said Kamryn. “Throughout the year, I go pretty much all over the country.” It’s a demanding schedule, but Kamryn loves it. She has been a competitive skater since the age of three and hopes to make it to the Olympics.Ice HockeyGarrett Geane, age 18 is living in Canada from September through April so he can play hockey with the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Steinbach Pistons. Like Kamryn, Garrett’s days begin early, with the morning skate. He then “attends” class for an hour each morning from via Skype with his teachers at Halstrom Academy. After class he has time to complete homework before heading back to the rink for the afternoon practice.As his mother, Jeanne Boyce puts it, “Garrett is having the most unbelievable time of his life.” He works hard, but he’s getting to do what he loves. Like other athletes who live away from home, Garrett lives with a “billet family.” These families offer room and board to amateur athletes under the age of 20 who leave home to join elite teams in other towns. Garrett’s parents visit him in Canada about once a month.SnowboardingJamie DeCesare, age 14 and competitive snow boarder is living in Colorado this winter so he can train with his coach and compete. As a snowboarder, he trains seven days a week. He competes in four areas – boarder cross, which is his favorite, as well as slalom, giant slalom and slope style. He’s also starting to train in half pipe, which was something he wasn’t able to do in California.Because his training is so intensive during the winter months, Jamie takes advantage of Halstrom’s flexible scheduling by attending school in the summer and fall, and takes the winter off to focus solely on his sport. He will return to California in April, and will start his sophomore year in June.A One-to-One School With Flexible Scheduling Helps Olympic Hopefuls Achieve Their DreamsIn 1985, Halstrom introduced Southern California families to a new, revolutionary concept: school with one-teacher to one-student class sizes and flexible class scheduling. Since then, Halstrom has helped thousands of students such as Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen, and professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler, achieve their educational goals.“I’m loving school at Halstrom,” says Kamryn. “It’s so awesome because of my schedule. And the 1:1 teaching at Halstrom is fantastic. It helps me grasp concepts easier, and it helps me to really learn better. At public school I fell behind in homework because I didn’t have time to do it all.”Jamie says he likes school a lot, and says he loves Halstrom because he really learns. The 1:1 teaching is great because he can move along at his pace, and not have to wait for other students in the class.Halstrom is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It offers more than 150 courses including AP courses and many that are U.C./C.S.U. certified and 96 NCAA approved. An in-depth college and career planning program prepares students for life beyond high school and has helped many students go on to prestigious universities. Halstrom offers year-round open enrollment at its Pasadena campus in addition to eight campuses located through out Southern California. Halstrom classes are also available via webcam through an online program. For more information visit www.halstromacademy.org.

He has covered a number of communities across Texas and southern Oklahoma, writing news and sports for publications including the Ardmoreite, Ennis Daily News and the Plano Star-Courier. He is currently a contributor to DS News and The MReport. Long-time Trump family associate Lynne Patton accepted a key role with the Department of Housing and Urban Development recently.Patton, who previously served as Vice President of Eric Trump’s charity foundation and spent eight years working closely with the Trump family, will join Dr. Ben Carson as a senior advisor and director of the Office of Public Liaison at HUD, according to a story posted on The Daily Mail.Patton will serve as a close advisor to HUD Secretary nominee Carson, were he to be confirmed by the Senate. It is as of yet unknown when the Senate will have its full vote on Carson, following his approval by the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee.She said in a statement she chose the HUD post because she believes that she can make an immediate difference in minority lives alongside Dr. Carson.“I chose HUD because not only has our President and his Administration made promises to the African-American, hispanic & Native American communities during the campaign, but I have too and I know that Dr. Carson has,” she said. “I believe that at HUD, we can make a more immediate and significant impact in bringing those promises to fruition.”As a public liaison, Patton wouldn’t have control over grants, regulations, or low-income subsidies, but would travel with Carson and serve as a senior advisor.Senators pressed Carson during his confirmation hearing about the possibilities that President Donald Trump’s business organization could benefit from HUD decisions.’Can you assure me that not a single taxpayer dollar that you give out will financially benefit the president-elect or his family?’ asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) during Carson’s Banking Committee confirmation hearing.’I can assure you that the things that I do are driven by a sense of morals and values, and therefore I will absolutely not play favorites for anyone,’ Carson said.Patton spoke at the Republican National Convention on behalf of Trump.’The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends,’ Patton says in a video played at the convention.’They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world-hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked,’ she said.
