When he’s fit and focused, Picamoles is the best No 8 in France and if he does stir himself in the summer he could make his first start since the 2014 Six Nations. Loann Goujon has played well in his two opportunities against Italy and England, but the French need more ball-carrying presence in their back-row.Ball carrying option: Louis Picamoles is out of favour but offers valuable go-forward (Pic Inpho)That’s the reason why Bernard Le Roux might have a job on his hands to keep hold of the No7 shirt in the autumn. He’s a good athlete but struggles to make the hard yards at international level. Yannick Nyanga, Wenceslas Lauret , Fulgence Ouedraogo and Alexandre Lapandry are alternatives, and there’s a rumour in France that Clermont’s veteran flanker, Julien Bonnaire, could be a surprise inclusion the squad.Though he won the last of his 75 caps in 2012 Bonnaire – who turns 37 the day after France’s opening World Cup match against Italy – has been in good form for Clermont this season and PSA will have noted how England weren’t afraid to call on the experience of Nick Easter during the Six Nations, a player one month older than the Clermont back-rower.But the glaring weakness for France remains at fly-half where in his three and a half years in charge of France, PSA has called on Camille Lopez, Jules Plisson, Rémi Talès, Frédéric Michalak, François Trinh-Duc and Lionel Beauxis. None has managed to combine quality with consistency and that has left the door open for Grenoble’s Jonathan Wisniewski, who’s flourished this season since arriving from Racing. “The World Cup starts today!” declared Philippe Saint-Andre the day after France had suffered a 20-point stuffing by England. Never before had France shipped 50 points to the English, and while they’d never scored 35 points at Twickenham, the fact remains that France finished fourth in the Six Nations, as they did in 2012 and 2014. Still, at least that’s an improvement on 2013, when they were bottom.It’s an appalling record, the worst run of Six Nations results that France have endured in the professional era, but Saint-Andre was bullish in his prediction of Les Bleus’ chances in the World Cup. “I have confidence in our players,” he told the press. “They have the quality and the desire.”Between now and May 19, Saint-Andre must select his World Cup squad of 36 players. On Sunday he told reporters 80 percent of the squad was already pencilled in, which means there are only seven or eight places up for grabs.Certain players we can sure will be part of Saint-Andre’s plans. Captain Thierry Dusautoir, full-back Scott Spedding, wing Yoann Huget, second-row Yoann Maestri, and the front-row of props Nicolas Mas and Vincent Debaty and Guilhelm Guirado are all sure to be selected.French enforcer: Yoann Maestri doesn’t mind the rough stuff but is highly rated by the management (Pic Inpho)So, too, Maxime Mermoz and Gael Fickou, the centre pairing that against England reminded the world how skilful French threequarters can be. As was the case with England’s selection of Jonathan Joseph, injuries forced the coach to make changes that turned out for the best, and it will be intriguing to see how Wesley Fofana reacts for Clermont to the realisation that he’s lost his place in the France starting line-up.With Alexandre Dumoulin back training again after a persistent Achilles problem over the winter, France suddenly have strength in depth in the centre, as they do on the wing, where some commentators see Fofana’s role in the World Cup.But with Huget nailed on to the right wing, there’s only the left to play for, and Noa Nakaïtaci and Teddy Thomas will be in competition for that berth. Thomas, however, the precocious young Racing winger, hasn’t impressed the schoolmasterly Saint-Andre with his attitude since marking his debut with a hat-trick of tries against Fiji.In the frame: Noa Nakaïtaci impressed against England, causing their defence problemsThe same applies to Bayonne No 8 Charles Ollivion, like Thomas a gifted footballer, but someone with an independence of spirit that doesn’t sit well with PSA or his coaching staff. Some within the France squad were allegedly “shocked” to see Ollivon failing to adhere to PSA’s code of conduct.Will PSA risk including the pair in his squad, or will be prefer to pick less talented but more tractable players?It might be that the length of the World Cup preparation, which in France’s case starts in the first week of July, will convince PSA that he can knock them both into shape. The same applies to Toulouse No 8 Louis Picamoles, and the Toulon prop Xavier Chiocci and centre Mathieu Bastareaud, although in their cases it’s physical and not mental shape that is stopping them reaching their potential. They’re a trio of fine players who’d be even finer if they were fitter. Two months of healthy eating and hard fitness in the France training camp would do wonders for their game. Black and white: Philippe Saint-Andre will stand or fall by his selections over the next six months (Pic Inpho) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Philippe Saint-Andre said his side were like Father Christmas in gifting England tries, but after another humdrum tournament, time is running out for the World Cup… Dead-eye: Grenoble’s French fly-half Jonathan Wisniewski has proved himself a prolific kickerThe 29-year-old has more maturity to his game than either Lopez or Plisson, is defensively sound, reads the game well and possesses the skillset to adapt to circumstances. But best of all, he can kick goals, and his 248 points this season put him way out in front of the Top 14 leaderboard.Crippled by conservatism for so much of his reign, PSA has opened his mind in recent weeks and the inclusion of Wisniewski in his World Cup squad would be further proof that he’s longer a slave to convention.

Zakaria Cheik Ibrahim.Farah told Reporters Without Borders that the judicial authorities finally granted his request for provisional release. An investigating judge must decide in the coming days whether to dismiss the charge or send the case to trial. He said he was held in solitary confinement in a small cell which he could not leave, and that only his mother was allowed to visit him.An application for provisional release had been made by Stéphane Zerbib of Lawyers Without Borders, who visited Djibouti from 26 to 30 May to defend Farah at the request of Reporters Without Borders. The libel charge stemmed from an article in Le Renouveau accusing the army of lacking “neutrality” and saying it ” should be apolitical.” Farah has been detained several times in the past few years. In most cases, he was convicted of a press crime and was given a prison term or a fine. On 15 March, he was detained for a day and fined for “endangering the army’s morale.” June 4, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor Daher Ahmed Farah is released provisionally Le Renouveau editor Daher Ahmed Farah was released on 3 June from prison in Djibouti where he had been held since 20 April on a charge of libelling the army chief of staff.

News News News I trust that you will give this matter your careful consideration.Yours sincerely, RSF_en Organisation Jean-François JulliardSecretary GeneralPicture : Nicolas Sarkozy and Ali Bongo (AFP/Eric Feferberg) Weekly seized from Gabon’s newsstands Follow the news on Gabon The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa GabonAfrica Receive email alerts to go further Reports November 20, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Letter to President Nicolas Sarkozy on eve of talks with President Ali Bongo November 27, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders wrote to President Nicolas Sarkozy on 19 November 2009 on the eve of his meeting in Paris with his visiting Gabonese counterpart, Ali Bongo, asking him to raise the issue of press freedom in their talks. This is the text of the letter:Mr Nicolas SarkozyPresident of FrancePalais de l’ElyséeParis – FranceParis, 19 November 2009Dear Mr President,You are due to meet tomorrow with your Gabonese counterpart, Mr Ali Bongo. Reporters Without Borders would like to express its deep concern about the state of press freedom in Gabon and urges you to raise this issue in talks with you interlocutor.In fact nine media have just been sanctioned by Gabon’s National Communications Council (CNC) which accused them of “wholesale relaying of public rumours” and writing articles “spreading ethnic divisions, insults and slander”.We for our part consider that these sanctions are aimed only at penalising pluralist forms of expression. It is obvious that the new authorities do not accept that the results of the presidential elections should be commented on or that members of government and the ruling party should attract criticism.The spokesman for the Minister of Foreign and European affairs minister said on 12 November in answer to a question about the CNC sanctions, “We underline the importance that France attaches to the principle of freedom of expression. It is one of the fundamental principles of any democracy”. This statement seems to us inadequate. Freedom of the press is not just a principle and France should, through you, ask the Gabonese president to observe it more fully. Punishment of the nine media is just the latest in a worrying series of incidents. Several journalists found themselves in trouble with the authorities in the aftermath of the presidential election on 30 August, which the press had great difficulty in covering normally. Among them was the editor of the daily L’Union, Albert Yangari, who was questioned for several hours on 25 September. On the same day, police arrested the cartoonist, Patrick Essono, known as “Pahé”, and held him for nearly 48 hours. Very explicit death threats were also made against a journalist on L’Union, Jonas Moulenda, author of a report headlined “Je reviens de Port-Gentil” (I return from Port-Gentil), condemning the role of the military in a clampdown on post-election protests. Omar Bongo governed Gabon for 41 years without allowing the press any breathing space. We believe it is the duty of France to persuade his successor, Ali Bongo, to choose change. That is why we would be grateful if you could insist with him on the need to protect journalists and to allow for criticism.

Pease Elementary School physical education teacher Olivia Juarez has recently given her classes a beat with cardio drumming.Exercise balls are set out and perched on large buckets so the students can use drumsticks to beat on them and use up some energy at the same time.Juarez just started using cardio drumming recently.“I told them I’m kind of winging it right now just because I’m barely getting my feet wet, but I want to be more prepared next year,” Juarez said.She added that she discovered cardio drumming from a couple of other coaches in the school district.“But I really didn’t know too much about it, so I went on YouTube and I just started watching videos,” Juarez said.She added that it looked like fun, so she decided to try it.“One of the biggest things my kids like about PE is the music, so since this uses music I figured this is the way to hook them,” Juarez said.During the song, she can tell whether they are engaged. If it doesn’t look like they are, she’ll switch the song.“I know their favorite songs because they request them all the time,” Juarez said. “… I have to kind of know their likes. We just go with the flow.”Juarez said it’s important for her students to enjoy exercising.“Not only do they reap the physical benefits, their emotional health and self-esteem will improve as well. I do believe that it will benefit them as they get older because it is not always easy for adults to stick to an exercise regimen. If my students grow up knowing that exercise can be fun, then they may be more liable to lead a healthy, active lifestyle doing activities that they enjoy,” Juarez said in an email.Elissa Romero-Yanez, 6, first grade, Jaime Santos, 7, first grade, Yaretzi Mary De La Rosa, 7, first grade, all enjoy the activity.“It’s fun because we do fun things,” Santos said.De La Rosa said she likes the singing and dancing and it makes her feel happy.Afterward, Romero-Yanez said it makes her feel sweaty.De La Rosa added that it makes her feel hot and tired, as well, and Santos said it makes him feel sweaty and happy.

The Enterprise has obtained a number of insurance policies underwritten by a panel of “well capitalized insurers and reinsurers”.The policies were acquired under Freddie Mac’s Agency Credit Insurance Structure (ACIS), which has a stated goal of providing multiple avenues for sharing mortgage credit risk with a diverse spectrum of private investors in a responsible way that does not reduce liquidity or adversely impact the availability of mortgage credit. This is the third insurance transaction of this nature that the GSE has entered into since November of 2013.The transaction represents the company’s largest credit risk transfer of this type and covers up to a combined maximum of almost $285 million of losses for a portion of the credit risk associated with a pool of Single-Family loans acquired in the second quarter of 2013.”With this third reinsurance transaction, we are bringing in new reinsurance and insurance companies, and distributing risk across more market participants,” said Kevin Palmer, vice president of Single-Family strategic credit costing and structuring for Freddie Mac.Obtaining the insurance is only one method that Freddie Mac is utilizing.In its 2013 Scorecard goals, Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) instructed both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to transfer a significant portion of the credit risk on a minimum of $30 billion of new mortgage securitizations. Both of the GSE’s realized these benchmarks using a combination of structured product sales in the capital markets and different types of insurance-based transactions.Now a year later, FHFA is raising the stakes by requiring the enterprises to triple the effect of their risk mitigation strategy by transferring a substantial portion of the credit risk on $90 billion of new mortgages. It requires them to, at the very least, continue their current practice of offering structured product sales and insurance transactions to accomplish the goal.FHFA wants them to go further. The Agency’s 2014 Strategic Plan for the Conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac released in May encourages the enterprises to stretch their risk mitigation programs out even further by engaging in multiple types of risk transfer transactions.The plan contends that even though investor demand is high at the moment, long term demand for the new offerings has yet to be tested. If the capital markets were to dry up or the enterprises had difficulty obtaining insurance on the mortgage securitizations, it would pose a risk to the long-term strategy. Diversifying the methods will broaden the investor base and aid sustainability.
