Vladimir Putin, Justin Trudeau and Marcel Aubut: A story of courage …

February 26, 2014

Bernard Bujold ( LeStudio1.com ) – 
We must recognize the value of a man in his courage to display his opinions. 
Marcel Aubut admire the work of Vladimir Putin in the organization of Sochi Games and he does not hide to say it. We must recognize that he has the courage of his opinions! 
At another level, Justin Trudeau apologized for his joke on the TV show TOUT LE MONDE EN PARLE  but he was absolutely right. Knowing the character and reputation of Vladimir Putin, it is certain that the Russian leader is in a very bad mood after the defeat of his hockey team. It is said that at the Vancouver Games , he would have asked his pilots to turn back his private jet when he learned that Russia lost to Canada. He was not there to receive the flag as is the Olympic tradition… 
One must be able to defend his opinions and, according to me, Marcel Aubut does it very well ! This does not mean that he supports violence in Ukraine but simply that everything is not black and white and that there are nuances. We must recognize that the Sochi Games were well organized on the sport aspect, even if some other political decisions by Putin not acceptable. 
We must also recognize that the Russian president should not be easy to approach in this time specifically since losing to hockey. The reality of life is such that  human feelings are influencing the decisions of world leaders ! 
Congratulations to Marcel Aubut to defend his opinions and lets wait a bit before asking for favors to Vladimir…

Liam Neeson, Anderson Cooper, Natasha Richardson and a story of ski …

February 24, 2014

By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) –
Liam Neeson has given an intimate interview to the journalist Anderson Cooper for CBS 60 Minutes about the death of his wife Natasha Richardson. 
On 16 March 2009, Richardson sustained a head injury when she fell while taking a beginner skiing lesson on the Nansen slope at the Mont Tremblant Resort in Quebec. 
The injury was followed by a lucid interval, when Richardson seemed to be fine and was able to talk and act normally. Paramedics and an ambulance which initially responded to the accident were told they were not needed and left. Refusing medical attention twice, she returned to her hotel room and about three hours later was taken to a local hospital in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts after complaining of a headache. She was transferred from there by ambulance to Hôpital du Sacré-Cœur, Montreal, in critical condition and was admitted about seven hours after the fall. The following day she was flown at the request from her husband to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, where she died on 18 March at the age of 45 years old. 
Her story is similar in a way to the one of Michael Schumacher also 45 years old. 
Personnaly, I was shocked by Natasha Richardson accident as the same day on Monday March 16, 2009, and the whole week before, I used many times this Nansen hill…

POPE FRANCIS – His favorite book …

February 18, 2014

Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) –  
According to Pope Francis, the book he prefers is Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes. This book is relevant to all generations from young children,  adolescents, adults, and finally the elderly. 
According to Francis, the ultimate battle of Don Quixote is human death and the search for eternal life according to Catholic belief. The Pope is a great lover of the arts and he loves the mysterious and dramatic creations.

Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) – 
The script should not take place in this way… 
Philippe Couillard was to be the savior and he had to get rid easily,  by lightly rubbing his hands, of Pauline Marois who has always been a dying politician, but has always risen in the last minute with the change of weather, or unforeseen from political life. 
Now there’s the rumor that provincial elections in Quebec will be held on next April 14th! 
Philippe Couillard is moribund, Pauline Marois has the wind in her sails and the others, well they expect a miracle…  
Perhaps, with the spring, the weather will change and the winds turn? 
But we will have to pray hard… and in all religions! 
Stay tuned!

Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) – 
Nobody is safe from this kind of situation… 
The dramatic story is the one of “the man with the hammer”, Alain Magloire (42 years), a brilliant former medical student at the Sorbonne with a Master in biochemistry who ended his life by becoming another victim of the deadly shot gun by a Montreal police officer… 
It seems that the officer who took the shot is a young policeman while other officers there, who were more experienced, one is a hero of the Dawson shootings, were trying to reason Magloire but their actions were not fast enough to prevent the fatal shooting by their young colleague. Ultimately, the survival tips to follow for Montrealers is clear: Beware of shooting by police because they use real bullets…

FACEBOOK – 10 years

February 4, 2014

Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) – 
Facebook social network celebrates its 10 years of life since its creation on 4 February 2004. 
In 2014, there are more than a billion members from around the world. 
Happy Birthday Facebook!  

Message by Mark Zuckerberg :
Today is Facebook’s 10th anniversary. 
It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. It’s rare to be able to touch so many people’s lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can. 
People often ask if I always knew that Facebook would become what it is today. 
No way. 
I remember getting pizza with my friends one night in college shortly after opening Facebook. I told them I was excited to help connect our school community, but one day someone needed to connect the whole world. I always thought this was important — giving people the power to share and stay connected, empowering people to build their own communities themselves. When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it. The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more. 
While some doubted that connecting the world was actually important, we were building. While others doubted that this would be sustainable, you were forming lasting connections. We just cared more about connecting the world than anyone else. And we still do today. 
That’s why I’m even more excited about the next ten years than the last. The first ten years were about bootstrapping this network. Now we have the resources to help people across the world solve even bigger and more important problems. Today, only one-third of the world’s population has access to the internet. In the next decade, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to connect the other two-thirds. Today, social networks are mostly about sharing moments. In the next decade, they’ll also help you answer questions and solve complex problems. Today, we have only a few ways to share our experiences. 
In the next decade, technology will enable us to create many more ways to capture and communicate new kinds of experiences. It’s been amazing to see how all of you have used our tools to build a real community. You’ve shared the happy moments and the painful ones. You’ve started new families, and kept spread out families connected. You’ve created new services and built small businesses. You’ve helped each other in so many ways. I’m so grateful to be able to help build these tools for you. I feel a deep responsibility to make the most of my time here and serve you the best I can. 
Thank you for letting me be a part of this journey.

The football team Denver Broncos was completely beaten and a little more during the Super Bowl 2014! 
It was a “total rout “… 
The final score is humiliating : 
Seattle 43 
Denver 8 . 
One could say that the horse ( mascot ) has not brought luck… 
When the Broncos entered the gates of the stadium with this galloping horse which had a lot of energy, one would have thought that the match would be dominated by the team, which was not at all the case! 
At best, the arrival of the players with the horse was their sole inspiration of the match. 
Of course the lunch (McDonald’s ) for the game was delicious! 
At the end of the game, the mascot was exhausted ! 
The horse would have said: “Lets call it a day and go get some rest. Maybe we will have better luck next year. Hiiiiiiiiii….

WOODY ALLEN – Great genius and great madness

February 2, 2014

By Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) –
According to his daughter, Woody Allen would be a child molester… 
We can believe what we want, but none of us know for sure… 
The films of Woody Allan are really exceptional, but the story of his daughter Dylan Farrow could also be true! One does not prevent the other, on the contrary. 
Great genius is always accompanied by great madness! 
The letter in The New York Time begin with a question asked by his daughter: What is your favorite film by Woody Allen? At the end, Dylan ask if we still have the same answer after reading her letter. 
When Woody Allen received a Golden Globe award for lifetime achievement a few weeks ago, there was a lively debate about whether it was appropriate to honor a man who is an real “artistic giant” but also who was accused years ago of child molestation. 
Personally, I would add that there is never smoke without fire and if I love the films of Woody Allan which are really exceptional, I also believe in the story of his daughter Dylan Farrow. 
But the truth is sometimes difficult to demonstrate and, to separate good from evil is often impossible…
