The new book of Benedict XVI

The new book by Pope Benedict XVI is captivating and we discover who really is the man Benedict XVI.
In his new book, Pope Benedict VXI is very realistic about his church and even the definition of God. In a sense, it supports even Wikileaks when he says that disclosure of sexual abuse has really hurt the church but added that the truth always leads to better institutions. A book to read!

Bernard Bujold is a great admirer of photographer Yousuf Karsh and he had the pleasure of meeting him a few times when they both lived in Ottawa.
Bernard was quick to accept the invitation of the McCord Museum in Montreal to attend a recent press conference to announce the exhibition: Karsh & Steichen.
"Let's say that the press conference was not very long ... but the exhibition deserves to be seen. Besides, the McCord Museum deserves to be better known. It was a discovery for me and I loved all exhibitions currently in place. The one about Karsh continues until April 25,2011.

Julian Assange and the trilogy Millennium

The story of Julian Assange and site Wikileaks is like a copy reality of the fiction trilogy by Stieg Larsson, Millennium.
Assange is a figure that includes both the characteristics of Lisbeth Salender the hacker and the journalist Mikael Blomkvist. One would think that Julian Assange was inspired from the novel to create Wikileaks ...
His arrest will not put an end to disclosures of Wikileaks because there are hundreds of Internet users worldwide who put a mirror copy of the website information on their respective servers.

Jean Charest is like Ingrid Betancourt

When asked Friday in Montreal about his survival in the jungle Ingrid Betancourt said: "I never gave up who I was in my soul and I'm never become slave to my captors. I've always remained true to myself! ".
In a sense, Jean Charest is acting the same towards those who criticize him. It does not submit or abandon his ideas before them! He could win at this game because in politics, two years is an eternity and there is no real opponent in place that can really replace him as Prime Minister.
