LADY GAGA AND THE SUPER BOWL 2017 
By Bernard Bujold – 
If I was younger… it’s a woman like LADY GAGA I would need. But she may have a little too much energy for me… and I could not follow her! 
A real good show at the halftime of the Super Bowl!

URBAN VIOLENCE AND THE MOSQUE OF QUÉBEC

URBAN VIOLENCE AND THE MOSQUE OF QUÉBEC
By Bernard Bujold – 
The tragedy at the mosque in Quebec City brings us back to the serious problem of urban violence. Basically, people are violent in the soul! 
Proof: go for a walk in the streets of a city like Montreal, at the central station for example. Pedestrians walk straight ahead and do not slow down in front of them at the risk of being projected firmly to the ground. Try it … 
In summer, the same evidence exists with the bike rides, in the streets and on the bike paths! 
Violence (and racism) is a new reality of society. 
Donald Trump is not the source of all evils as most media accuse him. He is only a country president. Trudeau, Holland, Merkel and others all have as much influence on political discourse. And Donald Trump was not in politics on September 11, 2001 … 
Violence and terrorism is not the prerogative of a country and this is the real tragedy. 
Terrorism is like a snow storm or rain that does not want to stop. It is in the air of time and it is at the world level! 
I’ll let you find the solution …

HMV MUSIC – THE END OF AN ERA 
By Bernard Bujold 
There was a time when I visited the HMV records store at least once a week but since the last few years, I visited very rarely preferring to listen my music on the Internet. However, I can say that I lived very beautiful moments with the collaboration of HMV and its closure is for me like the loss of a friend … 
To highlight the sad event, I bought myself the last record of Leonard Cohen. I can say that these are two friends who left me behind …

THE WAR OF THE TRADITIONAL MEDIA 
By Bernard Bujold – 
Quebec media specialist Eric Le Ray has just published a great digital book on the current media war on social media: “LE JOURNAL SANS JOURNALISTES ou le cinquième pouvoir des gens ordinaires”.
His look is particularly precise and detailed regarding the importance of ordinary citizens who have become the new journalists on social media. 
A particularly interesting book as the US mainstream media face a real war for their survival against the new President Donald Trump. 
A must read!

DONALD TRUMP – THE FIRST OFFICIAL PICTURE 
By Bernard Bujold- 
Donald Trump got his first official photograph as President of the United States. 
As a photographer myself, it is always interesting to analyse a picture and to know what camera was used. 
Both picture of Barack Obama and Donald Trump were taken with Canon. 
And just for the fun of it, here is a comparison of three portraits EXIF.
