  1. Filipino citizens who don't sing their national anthem enthusiastically enough could face penalties. Under a new proposed bill, approved by the House of Representatives on Monday, singing to the national anthem will be "mandatory and must be done with fervour." SEE ALSO: Regulators in the Philippines want to ban rosaries on dashboards and people are pissed If the bill is passed by the senate eventually, those failing to sing with gusto could face a hefty fine of up to 100,000 pesos, or $1,978. All citizens also have to stand at attention during the song facing the Philippine flag if it is displayed, or if not, the band conductor, according to news outlet the Inquirer. Read more...

  2. It's great when comedians known for being confrontational actually, you know, confront something. Stephen Colbert did exactly that when he interviewed the 58-year-old tennis legend John McEnroe on The Late Show. McEnroe caused controversy when he stated that Williams would only "be like 700 in the world" if she played on the men's tennis circuit. SEE ALSO: Wanted man Stephen Colbert says agents followed him 'everywhere' on his Russia trip "You cannot be serious," Colbert said, refusing to let the issue go. Regardless, McEnroe stood by his patently offensive and annoying statement. Watch the entire moderate-to-strong infuriating exchange yourself. Read more...

  3. Alibaba is doubling down on Southeast Asia after it announced a deal to pay close to $1 billion to raise its stake in e-commerce firm Lazada from 51 percent to 83 percent. The Chinese firm made an initial $1 billion investment in April 2016 at a valuation of $1.5 billion — this second deal raises that valuation to $3.15 billion, Lazada disclosed.

  4. Remembering that no one's perfect can be comforting, which may explain why we love to watch people mess up on live TV so much. YouTube channel News Be Funny has dutifully curated the best live news fails from the month of June into one tidy video for your viewing pleasure. Some of them are super cringe-y, some are relatable, but they are all worthy of chuckles. Read more... More about Bloopers, News Bloopers, Cringe, Funny Videos, and Culture View the full article
  5. The Most Famous Artist is all about reverse-engineering art to find what works on social media. In his latest project, he's using artificial intelligence to create like-able and sell-able work that also comments on AI's potential to kill jobs and industries. SEE ALSO: Bright pink houses attract crowds looking for the perfect selfie, and the neighbors are pissed Earlier this month the artist, known as Matty Mo, painted three soon-to-be demolished houses in Los Angeles bright pink. They became a hit for photoshoots and selfies, or in Mo's parlance, an "Instagram honeypot." He's moved onto his next project looking into AI and tech. The show kicked off Tuesday with a one-day gallery pop-up in downtown San Francisco. Read more...

  6. Despite the fact that superhero movies have been all the rage for the past couple of decades, female superhero movies have been a more recent phenomenon. Indeed, DC's Wonder Woman marks the first major female superhero movie since Catwoman and Elektra back in the mid-aughts. And the competition has taken notice. SEE ALSO: 'Wonder Woman' just keeps smashing all kinds of records Speaking with Mashable at a recent press day for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige offered his thoughts on Wonder Woman's groundbreaking debut. The MCU is currently hard at work prepping its first female-led movie, 2019's Captain Marvel, with Brie Larson set to star and Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck confirmed to direct. But if Feige's feeling the heat from the competition, he's not showing it. Read more... More about Movies, Wonder Woman, Kevin Feige, Entertainment, and Movies Tv Shows View the full article

  8. In the UK there’s a war going on against streaming pirates. At least, that’s what the local anti-piracy body FACT would like the public to know. The popular media streaming platform Kodi is at the center of the controversy. While Kodi is perfectly legal, many people use it in conjunction with third party add-ons that offer pirated content. FACT hopes to curb this trend. The group has already taken action against sellers of Kodi devices pre-loaded with these add-ons and they’re keeping a keen eye on developers of illicit add-ons too. However, according to FACT, the ‘crackdown’ doesn’t stop there. Users of pirate add-ons are also at risk, they claim. “And then we’ll also be looking at, at some point, the end user. The reason for end users to come into this is that they are committing criminal offences,” FACT’s chief executive Kieron Sharp told the Independent. While people who stream pirated content are generally hard to track, since they don’t broadcast their IP-address to the public, FACT says that customer data could be obtained directly from sellers of fully-loaded Kodi boxes. “When we’re working with the police against a company that’s selling IPTV boxes or illicit streaming devices on a large scale, they have records of who they’ve sold them to,” Sharp noted. While the current legal efforts are focused on the supply side, including these sellers, the end users may also be targeted in the future. “We have a number of cases coming before the courts in terms of those people who have been providing, selling and distributing illicit streaming devices. It’s something for the very near future, when we’ll consider whether we go any further than that, in terms of customers.” The comments above make it clear that FACT wants users of these pirate devices to feel vulnerable and exposed. But threatening talk is much easier than action. It will be very hard to get someone convicted, simply because they bought a device that can access both legal and illegal content. A receipt doesn’t prove intent, and even if it did, it’s pretty much impossible to prove that a person streamed specific pirated content. But let’s say FACT was able to prove that someone bought a fully-loaded Kodi box and streamed content without permission. How would that result in a conviction? Contrary to claims in the mainstream press, watching a pirated stream isn’t an offense covered by the new Digital Economy Act. In theory, there could be other ways, but given the complexity of the situation, one would think that FACT would be better off spending its efforts elsewhere. If FACT was indeed interested in going after individuals then they could easily target people who use torrents. These people broadcast their IP-addresses to the public, which makes them easy to identify. In addition, you can see what they are uploading, and they would also be liable under the Digital Economy Act. However, after FACT’s decades-long association with the MPAA ended, its main partner in the demonization of Kodi-enabled devices is now the Premier League, who are far more concerned about piracy of live broadcasts (streaming) than content made available after the fact via torrents. So, given the challenges of having a meaningful criminal prosecution of an end-user as suggested, that leaves us with the probability of FACT sowing fear, uncertainty, and doubt. In other words, scaring the public to deter them from buying or using a fully-loaded Kodi box. This would also fit in with FACT’s recent claims that some pirate devices are a fire hazard. While it’s kind of FACT to be concerned about the well-being of pirates, as an anti-piracy organization their warnings also serve as a deterrent. This strategy could pay off to a degree but there’s also some risk involved. Every day new “Kodi” related articles appear in the UK tabloid press, many of them with comments from FACT. Some of these may scare prospective users, but the same headlines also make these boxes known to a much wider public. In fact, in what is quite a serious backfire, some recent pieces published by the popular Trinity Mirror group (which include FACT comments) actually provide a nice list of pirate addons that are still operational following recent crackdowns. So are we just sowing fear now or educating a whole new audience? Source: TF, for the latest info on copyright, file-sharing, torrent sites and ANONYMOUS VPN services. View the full article

  10. The sails of the Sydney Opera House are often a canvas for projections throughout the year, but now the icon is set to be a display for Indigenous Australian art every sunset. It's called Badu Gili, meaning "water light" in the language of the traditional owners of the land the building sits on, the Gadigal people. SEE ALSO: Australia's Uluru is so sacred it's tricky to photograph. This is how Google brought it to Street View. The projection will comprise of a seven-minute animation exploring ancient stories, and will begin its appearance on the sails from Wednesday evening at sunset. Image: DANIEL BOUD Read more...
