There is anger too because every year there are hunting accidents.” Ms Henderson, who runs a local magazine for holidaymakers called Morzine Source, added: “Marc had a lot of friends in the area. We’ll all miss him.” Another local wrote on Facebook:  "This is absolutely devastating. Everyone in our community will be affected by last night’s accident. So very sad for Marc and everyone with him." Les Gets - locator map A source involved with the police investigation said: "He died instantly after being hit with a single bullet. The accident happened on Saturday evening in thick woods. The shooter went into deep shock when he realised what he had done." The source added: "He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton with his partner Jo Watts Credit: Facebook But local prosecutor for the Thonon-Les-Bains region said: "Couldn't be confused with game, as he had a coloured helmet and a coloured mountain bike", suggesting the weapon might have gone off accidentally. It is understood local police are treating the matter as aggravated manslaughter for which the gunman could be prosecuted and jailed. “He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton was shot dead on Saturday evening The Foreign Office said it was in contact with the local authorities and was ready to provide assistance to the man's family. It is the latest in a series of hunting accidents in which people have been killed or severely wounded. Last year a 59-year-old hiker was shot dead by a hunter in the Drôme and a 13-year-old boy died when he was accidentally shot by his grandfather. In 2017 a woman who had been sitting in her garden was killed after a stray hunter's bullet passeds through her garden hedge. In 2016, there were 18 fatal hunting accidents reported in France.

Sat, 10/13/2018 - 05:00

You always forget to wash your face, don’t you? Cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face after a grueling day may *sound* like a good idea, but you always forget — or are too tired — to do so. We’re going to level with you: It’s really important to wash your face. Not only can it remove impurities and give you a healthy, youthful glow, but your skin is also your body’s largest organ. Why  treat it any differently than, say, your heart or kidneys? It’s time to develop your skincare routine, with an assist from technology. The TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush System might be just the thing to get you started. Plus, just look at it: Image: Tao CleanDoesn't it kind of look like a spaceship? Thanks in part to its soft bristles and powerful rotation technology, this brush can reportedly clean deep in your pores, removing dirt, makeup, and other debris. Simply apply your cleanser onto your face, turn on your brush, and let 'er rip. This brush is apparently so powerful that TAO claims it’s more effective than manually washing your face. But a clean face is only one piece of the puzzle. The base doubles as a cleaning system that dries your brush when idle. Wet brushes are susceptible to unwanted bacteria, which would ultimately end up on your face and defeat the whole purpose. However, this cleaning station promises to kill 99.9 percent of bacteria, leaving you with a clean, dry brush every time. Oh yeah and it's also on sale. Normally, the TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush System costs a staggering $129, but for the next few days, you can get it for $70. Honestly, this product is so cool — and surprisingly affordable — that it might even make you *want* to wash your face. Image: TAO Clean TAO Clean Orbital Facial Brush System — $69.99 See Details
