Good morning :
—Amazing. It was 13 years ago that You Tube started. Today it has more than one billion users and they consumer more than one billion hours of videos daily. And here is the most-watched video ever with more than five billion views.
It’s bouncy and perky. It made my day.
—Who knew. Melania Trump rarely smiles that genuine happy smile. But this time she did. And it was at the oddest event – a funeral and you can be sure the Donald won’t like it.
Take a look.
—You’re concerned, you’re worried about appearing before a group of people to make a speech. You think you’re going to mess up – public performances aren’t your cup of tea. But science says you shouldn’t be and here is why.
Another myth is busted.

ELECTION 2019 – TRUDEAU RIPS INTO CONSERVATIVE LEADER
Next year’s federal election is looming on the horizon.
And the Prime Minister – knowing his party is facing major political hurdles and that support for his government is waning at the polls has started the election campaign rolling by ripping into his Tory opponent and making references to former Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
And Trudeau is also facing internal political pressure. Many of the party faithful have a different vision from the party leadership.
WHAT IT MEANS
Even though an election is more than a year away, the Liberals are feeling the political heat as Canadians are not as keen on Trudeau as they once were. Hence, Trudeau’s attack on his Tory opponent – a distinct different approach when in the past he talked about sunny ways, sunny ways.
Every Monday and Thursday George Froehlich brings you interesting, unique and fascinating people that share their stories and perspectives.
LUKE MARSTON – YOUNG MAJOR COAST SALISH ARTIST ON THE PATH TO INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION , HIS STRIKING, PHENOMENAL AND EXQUISITE WORKS ARE ROOTED IN THE TRADITION AND HISTORY OF HIS PEOPLE, HIS ARTIST PATH STARTED AT AGE 12 AND AT AGE 18 HE HAD SOME OF THE MOST RENOWNED NORTHWEST COAST CARVERS TEACH HIM THE ART OF CARVING
Luke Marston’s journey as an artist is deeply rooted in his family.
And today at age 41 he already is receiving recognition for his works that other major carvers only achieved at a much older age.
He was born on Vancouver Island to carvers Jane and David Marston. He worked first with Coast Salish Master Carver Simon Charlie, followed by five years at the Royal British Columbia Museum’s Thunderbird Park. For over a decade, he has exhibited at Alcheringa Gallery (Victoria) and the Inuit Gallery (Vancouver). He’s also exhibited in the United States and
Japan, and has received commissions from the Canadian Government, the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and the Nanaimo Airport.
In 2010, Luke was commissioned to complete a Healing Bentwood Box for the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This large cedar chest now travels throughout Canada as a symbol of healing for First Nation peoples across the country.
Luke Marston graciously accepted the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award in 2012 in recognition of his contribution to the arts.
In the Spring of 2015, Luke Marston unveiled five years of hard work and determination in his feature piece at Brochton Point in Stanley Park,Vancouver, BC. This international project was inspired by Luke’s Coast Salish and Porteguese ancestors and is a 17 foot bronzed sculpture integrating traditional Coast Salish carving casted in bronze and surrounded in a mosaic created of stone from Portugal. This sculpture is known as Shore to Shore and more detailed information can be found at www.shoretoshore.ca.
In this edition of Cool Conversations Luke talked to George Froehlich about:
How art is a way of life for him. Often, even at the breakfast table, he thinks about a new project and what he can do with it.
He has been around art all of his life – it started when he age 12 and he began making model canoes and canes.
Why his art is deeply rooted in Coast Salish history.
Why Northwest Coast art has the potential to become the number one art form in the world.
What inspires him.
The success that many Northwest Coast artists are having is rubbing off on the younger generation.
Why he loves teaching art to young children,
How his young daughters began carving at age 5.
Making money from his art is not his driving factor.
What is the key to his success.
