POPULARITY OF THE CHURCH IN 2017

April 10, 2017


POPULARITY OF THE CHURCH- 
By Bernard Bujold –
With the arrival of spring, there is also a rebirth in the churches. The festival of EASTER is there for many but there is also, especially in this year 2017, Pope Francis who has oriented his strategy of communications towards young people. 
They seem to hear his message especially that Francis makes extensive use of social media to communicate as for example on INSTAGRAM. 
Various churches around the world are taking advantage of this momentum, and this is the case of the Marie Reine du Monde Cathedral in Montreal, where, as one example, hundreds of young people gathered during the weekend of Palm Sunday (April 8-9).

CELINE DION CHANGE OF MANAGER

CÉLINE DION CHANGE OF MANAGER… 
By Bernard Bujold- 
Céline Dion’s manager, Aldo Giampaolo, has resigned from his post and announced it by press release late on Thursday afternoon (6 April 2017). 
Céline’s son René-Charles Angélil, who celebrated his 16th birthday on January 25th, has often been rumored to be Celine’s future manager, but he is still too young to take on the job. It is therefore probable that Céline will manage her own, surrounded by executive assistants to filter the various projects and demands, and that René Charles will take over in a few years.

CNN OR THE MAKING OF TELEVISION –
By Bernard Bujold – 
CNN call himself a serious news media but an inside look at the organization display more of a TV Show Maker than a News Maker. The main and only goal: to create good rating. 
And according to the own CNN’s survey, you either love CNN or hate it, but in both cases, you are watching it!
