Skiers have no risk of experiencing an avalanche in Mont-Tremblant or in any other ski centers in Quebec but reading this article published in The New York Times enthrall at the highest point. This is the story of a survivor who lived avalanche in the Cascade Mountains (Washington and southern British Columbia) with all the details from planning the trip, beginning its descent, then to the avalanche… A very inspiring text with beautiful video! 
Merry Christmas and good ski…

The terrible Newtown tragedy seems related directly to the mother of the shooter. She was an avid gun collector and she was worried about the security of living in the United States. Her son was considered by his school as a victim and fragile…

My friend Gerard Depardieu

December 17, 2012


by Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) –
My friend Gerard Depardieu will left France to become a Belgian citizen! Gerard is a colorful and unpredictable person but can be defined by three traits: 
1. He is very loyal and generous to his friends; 
2. He loves life; 
3. He is rebellious against authority. 
Gérard Depardieu explained his decision to abandon his French residence in a letter published in the Journal du Dimanche. Personally, I agree with Gerard and I am very happy to say that I am his friend even far away from his life in Quebec.
Greetings dear Gerard…

Pope Benedict XVI on Twitter

December 12, 2012


by Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) – 
Twitter accounts of Pope Benedict XVI are launched. In all, there are seven accounts in 7 different languages. The most popular is English with nearly 800,000 subscribers. French is among the least popular with only a little more than 23,000 subscribers. The first messages of the Pope were fairly simple like: “Dear friends, I am pleased to get in touch with you through Twitter. Thank you for your generous response. I bless all of you from my heart.” The Pope’s arrival on Twitter has led some critics but overall the action is viewed positively as a major religious institutions opening to the modern communication technologies. 
Personally, although I am an atheist, I prefer this kind of actions rather than the actions of extremists and terrorists often done by some other religions who do not hesitate to go to war and to kill in order to convince… 
We can compare Pope Benedict XVI at other intellectuals and peaceful character as are the Dalai Lama or Nelson Mandela. 
Stay tuned!

Three stories of love for Christmas 2012: – Frank Stronach – Lloyd Robertson – Michelle Blanc

December 3, 2012


By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) –
I took the weekend to finish reading three books that I had on my bedside table. Autobiographies that I will offer for Christmas and all three have one thing in common: it tells a story of love.

The three books are: 

1. THE MAGNA MAN by Frank Stronach ;
2. THE KIND OF LIFE IT’S BEEN by Lloyd Robertson;
3. MICHELLE BLANC UN GENRE À PART. 

1. FRANK STRONACH 
I have always admired Frank Stronach who I met when I was in Ottawa. I also supported her daughter Belinda when she was in politics. Frank had passed through Montreal when he immigrated to Canada in 1954 before settling in Ontario and building the empire auto parts MAGNA. His autobiography is more or less a guide for those who want to succeed in life despite the obstacles. His main advice: have passion for what you are doing! Without passion and “love” of his work, no success is possible. 

2. LLOYD ROBERTSON 
I’ve always been a fan of Lloyd Robertson on CTV television network and his autobiography is a true summary of the evolution of radio and television in Canada. The story of the career of Lloyd Robertson will appeal to all those who have done or are doing the job of journalist or anchor in the electronic media. Lloyd reveals in his book many hidden aspects of this world. After reading this book, the main advice is the must of having to “love” his work if you want to succeed in the profession and especially always want to learn more about the society that surrounds us. 

3. MICHELLE BLANC 
Michelle’s book is obviously the story of her journey and her struggle in her sex change. Two things stand out: the courage shown by Michelle to realize her desire to become the woman she should have been born, but also and perhaps more importantly, what is holding the book is the “love” between Michelle and her spouse. One can only be more loving in their own lives and of his loved ones when we read the book about Michelle Blanc.
