No Less Than 38 Inspections Carried Out On Collapsed Scaffolding Site

Following the resurfacing of a video shared by Newsbook.com.mt, which showed a mother in Birkirkara scolding workers after scaffolding collapsed, endangering them and her family, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) issued a right of reply in regards to the incident. 

Through their right of reply, the BCA reported in a statement that no less than 38 inspections were carried out on the site to maintain full over sight. 

‘The developer was issued with two written warnings to stop work and take preventive measures due to water infiltration to third parties. The Authority’s inspectors took the responsibility by giving instructions where needed and continued to follow the case. Every instruction that was given to the developer was followed.’

The BCA also revealed that they are currently blocking the applicant’s bank guarantee due to damage done to third parties. 

After the incident, which took place on October 29th 2022, the ‘enforcement regulations continued to be strengthened through the amendments to the regulations on the management of construction sites which now came under the responsibility of the BCA.’

Here’s What Mona Lisa Would Look Like If Painted Today

Here's What Mona Lisa Would Look Like If Painted Today

We’ve all seen, at least images of, the famed painting ‘Mona Lisa’, painted by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci and currently sitting in the Louvre Museum. 

As the era of artificial intelligence picks up steam, the iconic painting has received the reimagining treatment as well – showing how the woman, famed for her fixed gaze at the observer, would look like if painted today.

A post shared by Gianpaolo Rosa (@gianpaolorosa)

The modern Mona Lisa – or at least, what AI thinks she would look like – was shared onto Twitter and other social media platforms. And it caused quite the stir.

Some highlighted how the new depiction reveals the current biases of artificial intelligence, saying it is pandering to the male gaze. 

Others said that whilst, yes, the image is a rather funny illustration of AI bias, ‘real art challenges or re-contextualises – it is an act of original thought. Most AI tools can only please. They cannot subvert or invent unless so programmed. 

The depiction was created by Gianpaolo Rosa, who also acknowledged the sexualization of the Da Vinci painting as problematic and sad. This, he said, could open up dialogue about how we perceive both art and women.
