HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUNE 2015 – HOW TO LIVE…

June 28, 2015


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) – 
The greatest richness of life, if not the only, is the youth, no doubt about that statement. 
But for other ages if we have 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 or 80 years? 
We must accept the reality and above all, always make the most of life and his journey! 
Of course sometimes you leave the lake and watch from the beach… or exchange the fast racing bike for a country one and go walking on quieter trails! 
The reality is that life is not a right but a privilege and that, as much for a young person of 20 years as for an person advanced in age. It is therefore important to enjoy, to love and live fully each of the now moments of our lives. In other words: “… always love what you are doing …” The importance should be given to each activity that we accomplish rather than to grant it to outcomes, which perhaps will never realize… Do not aim the reward but enjoy the present! Not easy, but it is possible and it is the key to happiness… 
All that to say that this weekend (Sunday June 28) it’s my birthday! I will take the opportunity to enjoy my favorite meal: a delicious Big Mac from McDonald’s .. and watch the ducks on the lake! 
And as life lasts only for one song… I wish myself a happy summer 2015 and especially “happy birthday!”

QUEBEC NATIONAL DAY – JUNE 24, 2015

June 24, 2015


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) – 
For me, in my soul, the symbol of Quebec has always been, and always will be, the Gaspé Peninsula and in particular the spectacular Rock of Percé! 
The magic of the sea of my childhood and the beauty of the nature of the place will never be replaced in my memory… 
Quebec have a nice National Day!

MARCEL BRISEBOIS – ARREST FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT

June 24, 2015


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) – 
Marcel Brisebois was a pillar of Quebec’s cultural community, a friend and political confidant of René Lévesque, a host and journalist renowned for several years at Radio-Canada and the main creator of the Contemporary Art Museum of Montreal. 
We just learned that he was arrested Tuesday morning by police for sexual assault on a minor (Tuesday, June 23, 2015). The evidence against him reportedly occurred between 1960 and 1980 on the alleged victim who can not be identified because he was underage at the time, said the Sûreté du Québec (SQ). 
Marcel Brisebois is 81 years old! 
Other charges could follow in the coming days…

THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA

June 22, 2015


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) – 
The story of Brian Williams (NBC) is much like that of Joel Legendre and François Bugingo. 
In the case of Williams, American soldiers had contacted NBC in 2003 to say that Williams did not tell the whole truth in his reports on the war. NBC did not respond… 
In 2015, thinking to promote their star Williams, NBC released a video recounting the exploits of their star anchorman. That was the end of Brian Williams when the same soldiers who had complained in 2003 commented virally on social media unveiling the lies of network television presenter. 
When social media did not exist, the mainstream media, governments and other institutions were fortresses and their respective stars were untouchables! But with social media, it is the public that has become the master and judge for the truth.

ENCYCLICAL JUNE 2015 – POPE FRANCIS

June 19, 2015


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) – 
Pope Francis believes in God but he also believes in science and his new encyclical he has just published encourages political leaders around the world to better protect the environment. It also invites the rich to share their wealth because the resources of the earth should be accessible to all humans. 
A text that bears reflection but also takes an active presence in the environmental issues of the day.

GILLES DUCEPPE IS BACK…

June 10, 2015


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) – 
The return of Gilles Duceppe in politics was coordinated by Bernard Landry who negotiated the return while Pierre Karl Péladeau accepted the proposed strategy including meeting Gilles Duceppe in person to accept and confirm the details. 
Gilles Duceppe will be the new co-War General in the campaign for Quebec sovereignty siding with Pierre Karl Péladeau. Duceppe will be in Ottawa and PKP in the National Assembly, so of course if each of the two win the election with their respective party. Observers say of them that they are the hopes of last resort in the Quebec revolution against Ottawa. 
The new Gilles Duceppe at press conference has not really changed from the old, except that he may look a little rejuvenated visually… Duceppe gives the look of a man about 60 years old while he will be 68 years on next July 22. Stephen Harper is 55 years old; Thomas Mulcair will be 61 years on October 24; and Justin Trudeau is 43 years old. 
But if the look and speech of Duceppe did not change, the political map may be greatly transformed for Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau, and of course for Stephen Harper who is favored. A three-horse race has now become a race of four! And worse for Thomas Mulcair, losing even just a dozen ridings in Quebec to the Bloc could mean forgetting a minority government to be a mere Opposition, or worse the Second Opposition behind Justin Trudeau. 
And of course this scenario assumes that Gilles Duceppe will not get good results in the field. To resume the sport comparison by Duceppe during his press conference: “… An election campaign is like a football game! Everything is possible…” 
Fall is going to be an exciting season to watch on the politics side! 
To be continued…
