“Ugly oaf” – Philippine Government launches a tirade on China



“China, my friend, how politely can I put it? Let me see…GET THE F*** OUT.”

A Philippine government official has unleashed a tirade on China in a recent Tweet. And no, it was not the President.

Philippine Foreign Minister Teodoro Locsin told China via a tweet that they are not helping their ‘friends’.

The tweet said China is like “an ugly oaf forcing your attention on a handsome guy that wants to be your friend.”

The tweet also called for China to remove its vessels from the EEZ in a rather expletive manner:

The tweet follows Manila’s protests over “illegal” Chinese boats inside the Philippines 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The EEZ stands for ‘Exclusive Economic Zone.’ It is a 200-mile area of the South China Sea bordering the Philippines.

Previously, Duterte has played to China’s favour in exchange for promises of billions in investment, aid and loans.

Despite the harsh tweet, Duterte says he still considers China “a good friend”.

Last week he said: “There are things that are not really subject to a compromise.

Tweet comes after ‘Illegal’ Chinese boats enter Philippine exclusive economic zone

China claims almost the entire South China Sea, which transports about US$3 trillion worth of goods each year.

In a statement on Monday, the Philippine foreign ministry also accused China’s coast guard of “shadowing, blocking, dangerous manoeuvres, and radio challenges of the Philippine coast guard vessels.”

Philippine officials believe the Chinese vessels are manned by militia.

This comes after protests in the Philippines over Chinese leadership

As of April 26, the Philippines had filed 78 diplomatic protests to China. This comes since President Rodrigo Duterte took office in 2016 as shown by foreign ministry data.

Marie Yvette Banzon-Abalos is the executive director for strategic communications at the Phillipino foreign ministry. Abalos said their increasingly harsh statement reflects China’s increasing brazeness..

“Our statements are stronger too because of the more brazen nature of the activities. The number, frequency and proximity of intrusions,” she said.

AI creates a song imitating Drake and The Weeknd



A big surprise for music fans when they heard a new song featuring Drake and The Weeknd. But there’s a catch!

The viral song was created by artificial intelligence.

A new song that sounds like Drake and The Weeknd has gone viral, but it was created by artificial intelligence.

Now, there’s a crusade against AI music.

The song,“Heart on My Sleeve”was created by artificial intelligence and quickly racked up millions of views on TikTok, Spotify, and YouTube.

Record label, Universal Music Group (UMG) is not happy about the song that used AI-generated vocals to simulate pop music artists Drake Graham and The Weeknd.

UMG flexed their muscle and forced the song featuring some of its biggest artists to be removed from Spotify and TikTok.

According to reports, UMG is taking it a step further and sent letters to Spotify, Apple Music, and other music streamers requesting they block AI tools from training their models on the melodies and lyrics of UMG artists.

Is the U.S. debt deal bad fiscal policy?



While President Joe Biden and Republican leadership came to an agreement on the debt limit—some lawmakers say the fiscal policy is a bad deal and does not rein in spending.

The executive branch and Congress tried to strike a deal about the debt limit as the country marched closer to defaulting.

The Treasury has been warning that the government could run out of money sometime in the beginning of June and would likely default on some bills if Congress does not raise the debt ceiling.

Democrats have insisted on raising the debt limit without preconditions.

But, Republicans say President Joe Biden and the Democrats are playing Russian roulette with America’s economy after a two-year spending binge that brought 40-year high inflation and pushed the nation’s debt to over $31-trillion.
