Can we all govern?

Us Now is a ground-breaking documentary project about the power of mass collaboration, the internet and its potential impact on society. Directed by Ivo Gormley, the film explores how the web is changing the ways we can organize ourselves. From a democratic football club where the fans pick the team to a lending service where everyone can be a bank manager, Us Now tells the story of new technology through human eyes, and for the first time brings together the leading thinkers in the field of participation and web culture to describe how mass collaboration could change society.

Celine Dion Chic

A brand spanking new summer fragrance is hitting the shelves in May all across Canada.  It is our beloved Canadian songstress’ newest fragrance.  I say it is perfect for a summer breezy morning sipping on mimosas. This is a white linen dress kind of perfume. It has a very subtle and pretty green with a touch of juice. I picture it like a spritzer or Italian sparking wine kind of scent. It’s for the girl with the 2 1/2 inch kitten heel, sheer pink lipgloss and French manicure.

Celine Dion Chic is a fresh approach to fragrance, enveloping women with a sublime
feeling of luxury without being pretentious. It combines the perfect blend of effortless sophistication, poise and playfulness. Inspired by Celine Dion’s incredible sense of style, youthful spirit and dynamic attitude, this fragrance appeals to all types of women.

“Celine Dion Chic is for the woman who seeks affordable luxury, who wants to project a sense of style with confidence and glamour” says Steve Mormoris, Senior Vice
President Global Marketing.

“I am thrilled to have partnered with Coty on another exciting new fragrance,” said
Celine Dion. “For me, this fragrance truly embraces the glamour of fashion with a
sophisticated edge. I hope all women feel as elegant and feminine as I do when
wearing this fragrance.”

The classical elegance of the Celine DioFont sizen Chic bottle is defined with architecturally
sound lines and prismatic carved edges that capture V (five) facets representing the number five, Celine Dion’s lucky number. The glass is complemented by a sleek black cap and reflective gold collar for a monochromatic look.
