Sacha Baron Cohen’s Ali G to interview Andrew Tate?

Published

on

They are two iconic characters, but fans are calling for Ali G and Andrew Tate to come together on the big screen.

Sacha Baron Cohen is widely regarded as a comedic genius and has also demonstrated his acting skills by seamlessly transitioning between comedy and drama roles over the course of his career.

His iconic creations, including Borat, Bruno, and Ali G from HBO’s acclaimed “Da Ali G Show,” have solidified his legendary status.

Now it seems that Cohen is returning to his roots.

According to reports from Daniel Richtman, there’s a new “Ali G” movie in the works, or at least it was being developed before any potential industry strikes.

The project has been kept under wraps, with Cohen apparently working on it discreetly without attracting much attention.

Fans of Cohen’s irreverent and satirical humor can likely anticipate another memorable addition to his body of work.

Now fans are calling for Ali G to interview Andrew Tate as part of the project.

One fan writes: “Have him interview Andrew Tate in a jail cell for 2 hours and maybe I’ll buy a ticket.”

It would be a blockbuster moment and maybe one that Sacha Baron Cohen could pull off.

    Without drastic change, global IT outage will hit again

    Published

    on

    Elements of Friday’s global IT outage have occurred before and until more contingencies are built into networks, and organisations put better back-up plans in place, it will happen again.

    A widespread Microsoft outage is affecting Australia’s supermarkets, banks, telecommunications companies.

    There are also reports of outages in Japan and the United States.

    The ongoing widespread outage is reportedly related to US-based cybersecurity provider CrowdStrike. Its ‘Falcon sensor’ is installed on many business computers to gather security data.

    In a statement to Ticker News, StickmanCyber said:

    “Multiple StickmanCyber security engineering and our 24×7/365 security operations teams across the country support reports that this outage is related to a CrowdStrike update. 
     
    “It is our understanding that any business running versions 7.15 and 7.16 are affected by the outage, but 7.17 seems to be ok. We are waiting on official advisory from CrowdStrike on these findings but doing our best to help affected customers. It’s a lesson to always update your software, but obviously this is an extreme example. IT security tools are all designed to ensure that companies can continue to operate in the worst-case scenario of a data breach, so to be the root cause of a global IT outage is an unmitigated disaster.
     
    “Crowdstrike support is offering a workaround to customers. It claims users may be able to fix the issue by booting windows in safe mode or in the Windows Recovery Environment and deleting a file named “C-00000291*.sys”.   

    “CrowdStrike is aware of reports of crashes on Windows hosts related to the Falcon sensor,” the company said in a statement on its website.

    “Symptoms include hosts experiencing a bugcheck\blue screen error related to the Falcon sensor. Our engineering teams are actively working to resolve this issue and there is no need to open a support ticket.

    “Status updates will be posted below [on the Microsoft websit€0 as we have more information to share, including when the issue is resolved.”

    Laptops down

    Thousands of users across the world reported problems with Microsoft services to Downdector.com, a website that tracks service disruptions.

    Microsoft laptops suddenly restarted across Australia on Friday afternoon.

    Outage website Downdetector shows issues across companies including NAB, Bendigo Bank, Telstra, CBA, Google.

    Microsoft response

    As users take to social media to complain, Microsoft reported a service outage for its Microsoft 365 apps and services, affecting businesses and users across the world.

    “We’re investigating an issue impacting users ability to access various Microsoft 365 apps and services,” Microsoft 365 Status said on X early Friday.

    Microsoft didn’t respond immediately to a request for comment.

    Frontier airlines

     

    The outage forced low-cost airline Frontier to cancel some flights. “Our systems are currently impacted by a Microsoft outage, which is also affecting other companies,” Frontier said in a statement. “We appreciate your patience.” The carrier said it would offer refunds to affected passengers.

    The Federal Aviation Administration said Frontier asked it to pause the airline’s departures across the U.S. Thursday night. The ground stop was later lifted. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    It said it is “observing a positive trend in service availability” as it continues to mitigate the problem.
