Hopefully they’ll be equally proactive in targeting companies that offer snowshoeing and summer walking holidays too. As an International Mountain Leader (IML), I feel strongly that the practice of unqualified guides and leaders being used by companies which won’t pay for professionals should be stopped. It’s bad for clients, it’s bad for the industry, and, in France at least, it’s illegal. Zoe Smalley, trainee snowboard instructor Zoe Smalley At the end of the day the ESF/ENSA (Ecole Nationale de Ski et d’Alpinisme) make it so that thousands of people in mountain towns can make a decent living out of ski instructing during the winter, and I think it’s a good thing that they defend that. It’s not a xenophobic thing, but if you let lots of people who’ve done a one-week course or, worse, nothing, taking people out on the mountain for very little or no money, then that obviously can’t work. “Unfortunately holiday companies, especially English ones, will always take things too far… the idea of showing people the slopes is nice but when they’re basically giving lessons I can see why it’s a problem. Plan your perfect ski holiday this season Ben Button, former holiday rep and ski host I was working as a rep when they told us we couldnt host, this was only at a local level but has obviously spread since. At the time [we were told] it was due to levels of pay; the French police werent happy that we were being paid enough to undertake this work. Its a shame because it was an enjoyable part of the job but [if you’re] working overseas you have to abide by local rules. Terry James Walker Terry James Walker, freelance mountaineering instructor “It’s the equivalent of someone leading a group up Snowdon, Scafell or Nevis without any qualification. “They might be great and well experienced, but there is no guarantee that they will have the duty of care for the group. They can get lost, go off piste by accident, head down a steep slope that could lead to a client getting injured or the weather may turn bad and they don’t recognise signs of hypothermia/frost bite in the group. “A member might get injured and there is no definitive training laid out for incidents and emergencies or the best course of action.” Tim Francis, freelance outdoors instructor “Whether it’s summer or winter seasons, there is a dislike toward the British companies operating and providing guiding services.

Students’ connection with France growing stronger

Coach Didier Deschamps also included Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho and Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye in the 23-man list. The 20-year-old Varane returned to action with Real Madrid in Wednesday’s Champions League 4-0 victory at Copenhagen after months out with a knee injury. His first two international appearances in March, when he started the World Cup qualifiers at home against Georgia and Spain, proved enough to convince Deschamps to recall him. “It’s true that he has not played a lot yet but regarding what he did with us, it was logical to me to call him up,” Deschamps told a news conference. Sakho, who left French champions Paris St Germain because he was the fourth choice there, is also returning after earning four consecutive starts with English Premier League side Liverpool. Remy, who has scored three goals in his last two league games with Newcastle, is also coming back as Deschamps continues to look for the best attacking options. Karim Benzema, who has not scored with Les Bleus since June last year, was benched in Belarus last month but replacement Olivier Giroud did not prove much more effective despite the 4-2 victory. “Loic Remy has the scoring touch and is able to fill in several attacking positions. He also has the pace that gives us different possibilities,” Deschamps said. France host Australia in a friendly on October 11 and take on Finland for their final 2014 World Cup qualifier four days later. They are second in their Group I, tied on 14 points with leaders Spain, and will secure a spot in next month’s playoff if they do not lose to Finland.

Ski host in France

Management courses were popular among Indian students, they added. Through this tour, the officials of the Embassy of France in India and Campus France offered students and their parents the opportunity to meet some 20 top French business and engineering institutes. The admission tour was scheduled in four cities including Pune. The Bangalore and Chennai leg of the tour was held in September while the Chandigarh leg will be held on October 5. Caroline Goeny Mentre , heading the scientific and university cooperation at the Embassy of France in India told TOI on Thursday, “In 2000, there were only about 100 students from India studying in France. About five years ago, we created a niche for ourselves in India as far as engineering and management education was concerned. In 2012, 2,600 students from India received admissions into French schools and universities for 700 courses. The rise is encouraging.” Goeny-Mentre said the master’s degree in management in finance, international relations and marketing were the most popular among Indian students. “Besides, we also offer 300 scholarships amounting to Rs 7.1 crore in a year to Indian students in various disciplines which are purely merit based and at the masters level,” she said. To attract more Indian students to France, the embassy in May 2013, eased conditions for obtaining work visas. This allowed a large number of students graduating from French business and engineering schools to extend their stay for work in France. During the admission tour, students got the opportunity to meet the institutes’ representatives followed by a 20-minute interview with the French representatives that allowed students to gain insight into curriculum as well as all scholarship options. What’s attractive – The embassy in May 2013, eased conditions for obtaining work visa after completing studies in France – Facilitate travel visa for all Indian citizens who have studied in France and applied for tourist or business visa, will be given long period visa of up to five years if the student has taken a masters or PhD degree from France – Simplified visa procedures; scholarships – Nine campus France offices in India including one in Pune for visa consultation – Proposed France-India job opportunities network to promote opportunities for Indian students who have done higher education in France ALSO ON TOI

France call up Varane and Remy for World Cup qualifier

But its also a European one. Bulgaria and Romania, which have, between them, more than 2.5 million Roma citizens, hope to enter the Schengen group of countries within the European Union at the beginning of the year, meaning no passport would be required for travel across most national borders. The French and German governments have both said theyre against this. Vallss declarations offer one reason why. Some of Vallss fellow cabinet members were so deeply offended by his remarks that they spoke out publicly. When Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault defended Valls in parliament, he faced jeers and whistles. President Hollande basically tried to remain above the fray and reinforced his already doleful image as an ineffectual executive. His government looks out of control. The real problem, however, is on the street. A poll taken in the wake of Vallss remarks shows that 93 percent of the respondents agreed they Roma did not integrate well in France, and 77 percent agreed that Valls was right to say so.

(Philippe Huguen/AFP/Getty) French literature, films and music once romanticized the gypsies, from Esmeralda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame to the Cannes Film Festivals Palme dOr for Emir Kusturicas Time of the Gypsies, and of course, the songs of the Gipsy Kings. But anyone whos spent time in Paris these last few months is likely to have come across petty criminals, mostly underage and therefore virtually unprosecutable, making life miserable for those whom they catch unawares.
