The TikTok countdown begins. President Trump said he would ban the Chinese owned TikTok and WeChat in the US in 45 days if they are not sold by their Chinese-owned parent companies.
Microsoft is in talks to acquire the app following a conversation between CEO Satya Nadella and the President.
Trump set September 15 as the deadline for TikTok to find a US buyer. The app will be shutdown after the date if a buyer doesn’t rise to the occasion.
Right now, the app has attracted the 40 year old mom that shows off her dancing skills after much practice. But what happens if the app is banned? Is this the end of the world? No worries, I’m betting Microsoft wraps this up with the help of the president. Hence, TikTok will be saved and the world hangs on for one more day.
But Instagram Reels is waiting for you, if TikTok does go dark.
Sorry folks, the Chinese owned app TikTok will cease to exist at any moment in the US. India as well as other nations have banned what officials call a Chinese Spying Software app.
TikTok is like Huawei and ZTE, two Chinese companies that have been designated as threats to US national security.
The US has looked at forcing TikTok’s Chinese owner to divest it. It’s been said Microsoft could potentially acquiring TikTok’s US operations. I think that deal is off the table.
We hear Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is dancing in the streets now.
While the ruling class are working over time to get celebs and influencers to promote mask wearing, they probably gave up on Posty. Anyway, how much are they paying Jennifer Aniston, Chrissy Teigen, and Reese Witherspoon for the wear your mask posts? What’s next? Eat your daily serving of broccoli?
Although Post believes we should wear a mask, as do I, he thinks that people shouldn’t be forced to wear masks.
He was against government mandates when it comes to masks. Fines have been issued in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica.
“$300. Because maybe someone sees you eating and you don’t have a mask on. And then you’re stuck with a fucking ticket. It blows my mind,”.
“It’s like me in school having to fucking tuck in my shirt or else you get detention or whatever. It’s weird to be forced to wear something,” says Post.
“At the end of the day, it all comes down to respect for other people. It’s not a government thing. You shouldn’t be forced to wear a mask — but you should. And that’s because I respect you as a fellow human.”
I don’t know, but I love this guy. I always did. Post is the best artist to come out in a decade. He’s authentic, he has an amazing voice, a unique writing ability, and his live performance is unstoppable.
Do you remember the viral video that had Andrea Bocelli singing in an empty cathedral? I do, I watched it in the spring when Italy was in the news. It was pretty intense. Here is the video if you haven’t watched it. Anyway, he made some news again. The singer said he felt violated during Italy’s lockdown and that he felt ‘humiliated and offended’.
Here is what he said:
“I looked at reality and I saw that things were not as we were being told. When I started to express doubts about the seriousness of this so-called pandemic, the first to attack me were my children who told me to think about Tosca, because you don’t understand viruses.
He also was diagnosed with covid, but instead of following protocol, he spent time outdoors and took vitamin D and fully recovered with no issues.
He saved most of his outrage for the Italian government approach to reopening schools.
“I have an 8-year-old daughter and it’s unthinkable that these children will have to go to school divided by a piece of plexiglass and hidden behind a mask”.
“It’s unthinkable that schools were closed so quickly, and with the same speed nightclubs were reopened, where young people go not to learn, but to disperse their brains.”
“[My intent] was to send a message of hope for a near future in which – children first and foremost – can find a sense of normality again and hope to live ‘as children’, playing with and hugging one another, as they should at their age, and to be able to grow up happy and healthy.”
Billie Eilish released a new slow track titled “My Future“. It’s actually a bit a of departure of her previous material. She holds a longer note, more singing, less whispering, but still delivers that atmospheric listening experience. She is a true phenomena in this day and age when everybody is waiting for an instant hook.
She spoke to Apple’s Zane Low about the track.
“As much ‘my future’ is a song about personal growth and being content, it’s now, more than ever, I listen to it; I’m like, ‘Wow, this is actually is super relevant to right now.’ And our future as a world and as a people and I… It’s crazy when you can get to a point in life where hope itself feels hopeless,” she said. “It feels hopeless to hope for stuff. Should you even be wishing? Should you even be hopeful? It’s like, is it even worth it? That’s insane, but that’s where we are at this point. We can’t… We need the music. We need the hope.”
