Wyclef Jean Shot While In Haiti_2

Wyclef Jean was just shot while visitng Haiti!

The hip hop star and aspiring politician was just shot in the hand and was treated at a local hospital. Jean's rep, Cindy Tanenbaum has said that the shooting happened in the Delmas section of the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. She added that the gun shot wound was "minor" and that "he was immediately taken to the hospital, treated for a minor graze to his hand and released. He is fine." Wyclef has since said that when he got out of his car he heard a gun shot and saw blood on his shirt and shoes. However, he has no idea who fired the shot or if he was the target.

Wyclef Jean Says Sean Penn Sniffs Cocaine

WWyclef Jean Says Sean Penn Sniffs Cocaine

Wyclef Jean has accused Sean Penn of sniffing cocaine!

During a recent concert, the aspiring Haitian President changed a few words in his song President, singing, "I got a message for Sean Penn: Maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine." Penn, who spent several months in Haiti after the devastating earthquake, fired back by releasing this statement. "Mr. Jean is clearly unfamiliar with the physical demands put upon volunteers in Haiti. As aid workers there, the notion of depleting the body's immune system thru the use of illicit drugs is ludicrous. More specifically, J/P Haitian Relief Organization (a.k.a. JPHRO) has a ZERO tolerance policy for any and all illegal drugs. As the leader of this organization, Sean Penn has not only set this policy, but adheres to it. That Mr. Jean would make such a false accusation is reckless and saddening, but not surprising."

Wyclef Jean To Run For President Of Haiti

Wyclef Jean To Run For President Of Haiti

Wyclef Jean is set to run for president of Haiti!

The outspoken singer and activist recently told TIME that will announce his candidacy shortly before the August 7th deadline. He said that, “If not for the earthquake, I probably would have waited another 10 years before doing this." Marvel Dandin, a Port-au-Prince radio broadcaster added that, "A lot of Haitians are excited about this. Given the awful situation in Haiti right now, most people don’t care if the President speaks fluent Creole.” Jean grew up in Haiti but left for the States with his family at the age of 9.

He is scheduled to arrive in Port-au-Prince from New York City tomorrow. Do you think it's a good move for Wyclef and Haiti to have such a popular figure as President?

Quick Fact
It seems that the machines are winning in this digital age where voice-to-text is so prevalent. Many have abandoned the professional services of transcribers because they think that Androids and iPhones do much better jobs at documenting conversations. We are proud to say that the masses are wrong. A recent experiment placed man against machine in the battle for the accuracy and man, professional transcribers that is, defeated the competition. Whereas the machine mistook the word "ago" for "I go," professional transcribers had a knack for hearing and correctly interpreted the text. The playing field between man and technology is a bit more leveled.
