Now back to the BIG story, the two politicians and their apparent “dusty up”. Yeah right. Both of them may have exaggerated the altercation slightly, but you be the judge.
On April 13, Obby Khan said an incident happened during a ceremony marking Turban Day, a day for Sikh and Punjabi cultures. Wab Kinew said it was a “tense verbal exchange.” Obby said: “The leader of the Opposition pulled me in and said, ‘You piece of s—. How dare you politicize this f—ing event. What you did is f—ing wrong,”‘ Khan told the legislature chamber later that afternoon. Obby also accused Wab of swearing and shoving. “I said, ‘You should not have said these partisan things.’ (Khan) comes back at me and he says, ‘You have no class,”‘ Kinew said. “My colleague (NDP MLA Mintu Sandhu) was beginning to speak, and so I turned and said we should listen. At no time was there any swearing. At no time was there any name calling. And the interaction was of words exchanged, albeit tensely, over a handshake.” Problem is, the video has no audio. But one thing is clear, there was no shoving but the exchange was in fact tense. Here’s City TV’s initial report:
CTV Follow up: Below is the follow up after the video was released.
You be the judge. Can both of these politicians get back to work please?
GO JETS GO! Most will watch it on TV Tonight but the Jets play Vegas in Game 5, and while a chosen few will be on the strip to catch the game, most will be watching it on TV like this guy.
One of the GREATEST Halloween Movies of ALL TIME is getting a sequel! And it’s an 80’s classic to boot! Beetlejuice 2 rumors have been a round for years, but in 2016 MIchael Keaton suggested Beetlejuice should remain a standalone in case a sequel wouldn’t do the first movie justice. But on the heels of recent remakes and sequels, it looks like Hoollywood is willing to take that risk! Beetlejuice 2 does not yet have a release date. https://www.cbr.com/beetlejuice-2-in-the-works-warner-bros/
My AI has come to Snapchat. According to the company website Snapchatters can have the AI “answer a burning trivia question, offer advice on the perfect gift for your BFF’s birthday, help plan a hiking trip for a long weekend, or suggest what to make for dinner. My AI is there to help and to connect you more deeply to the people and things you care about most. You can give My AI a nickname and tell it about your likes (and dislikes!).” But it does come with a warning: We’re constantly working to improve and evolve My AI, but it’s possible My AI’s responses may include biased, incorrect, harmful, or misleading content. Because My AI is an evolving feature, you should always independently check answers provided by My AI before relying on any advice, and you should not share confidential or sensitive information. My AI is powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology, with additional attributes and safety controls unique to Snapchat. We believe there should be transparency when AI is involved in content creation. And if you share content generated by My AI they ask you let them know AI was involved in your work. Oh and BTW, users are finding it creepy, and annoying. But SnapChat will remove the feature if you give them $3.99 a month. Nice.
However, THIS AI is actually quite funny. An evil genius named Dan Oliver has made the greatest contribution yet to the current the AI-generated content trend: a pizza commercial. Specifically, a retro-styled ad for a fake restaurant called Pepperoni Hug Spot, with script, visuals, and audio all generated by various AI engines.
