Have you ever wondered how those photos of missing children, aged-up to show what they’d look like today, are made? These images are often the work of multiple skilled forensic artists, who create them by hand with the assistance of Adobe. To date, they’ve helped hundreds of children be found. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) is one of the most well-known organizations dedicated to helping find missing children.

Airports have been issuing tickets to Uber drivers without their knowledge, and the rideshare giant is paying for the citation fees from the drivers' paychecks, per a new Motherboard report. Thousands of US rideshare drivers have been issued citations when picking up or dropping off airport passengers, amounting to Uber using millions of dollars out of drivers' paychecks to pay the fines. Contracts between Uber and airport entities allow for the company to compensate airports by deducting wages from drivers, according to the report. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Uber is taking out wages from drivers' paychecks to cover airport-issued citations that were given to drivers without their knowledge, according to a new report from Motherboard's Lauren Kaori Gurley,  Airports including San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles Airport are reportedly issuing the tickets without informing the Uber drivers of the violations, which could include parking in a pedestrian zone for too long or not clearly displaying their Uber signage. Then, sometimes months later, the drivers have seen the citation amount deducted from their wages. Thousands of drivers are experiencing this, Motherboard reports.  From 2016 to 2019, the Los Angeles World Airports Authority — which oversees LAX — issued 11,117 citations to drivers amounting to $3.8 million that Uber has pulled from drivers' paychecks and into the airport's pockets, per Mobile Workers Alliance data viewed by Motherboard. One driver told Motherboard that he's had four $100 tickets taken out of his paychecks, all of which he never had a chance to appeal. "Sometimes this means I've had negative earnings and no money for gas," the driver told the outlet. "I've called Uber and they said 'we can't do anything.'" Per the report, the contracts in place between the airports and the company allow for Uber to pay the airports the amount they're due using driver wages. In an email sent from Uber to one of the drivers and viewed by the outlet, the company said it realizes the paycheck deduction"likely will come as a surprise, but per your agreement with Uber, we must collect the violation amount from you. The violation amount will be deducted from your next pay statement." Experts told Motherboard that drivers, just as ordinary citizens, have the Constitutional right to first be notified of a citation issued against them and to also appeal it, two actions they've reportedly been deprived of. This isn't the first instance in which gig workers for Uber have reported maltreatment from the rideshare giant. The company, as well as others like Lyft, have crafted their business models around classifying drivers as contractors. Reclassifying them as employees would majorly alter how they run their companies. Uber, for example, has pushed back heavily on a new gig-worker law passed in California requiring Uber's drivers in the state to be classified as employees and not independent contractors, a motion Uber has refused to carry out. As a result, many drivers have claimed they're collectively owed millions in back wages due to worker misclassification.

To record on Audacity, you simply need to add a track and press the "Record" button. With a keyboard command, you can start recording on a new track automatically, without having to add one separately. When you record in Audacity, the program will use whatever microphone you have it set to — this will be your computer's internal microphone by default. By changing some settings, you can also use Audacity to record music, Zoom calls, and other sounds being played on your computer. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. All computers come with a native audio recording program, like Voice Memos for Macs or Sound Recorder for Windows PCs.  These programs allow you to record sound using the computer's internal microphone or an external microphone, and they usually allow for simple audio editing. But if you're interested in a higher quality piece of recording software, you can't go wrong with Audacity. Audacity is free, easy to use, and contains a host of advanced features. Most importantly: recording on Audacity can be as easy as a single click. Once you've downloaded Audacity on your Mac or PC, here's how to record with it. Check out the products mentioned in this article: Apple Macbook Pro (From $1,299.00 at Apple) Acer Chromebook 15 (From $179.99 at Walmart) How to record on Audacity with a microphone 1. Open Audacity and find the recording devices tab. This is near the top of the screen, right above where you'll be recording, and has a microphone icon to its left. 2. Once you've found it, click that tab to open a drop-down menu, showing all the recording devices currently connected to your computer. Select the one you want to record with — if you don't see your microphone, make sure it's properly connected to the computer, and is turned on and ready to record. 3. Add a new track by clicking "Tracks" at the top of the screen, then "Add New," and then picking what type of track you want. For most recordings, you're going to want to pick either Mono or Stereo. 4. Now, to start recording, click the recording button at the top of the screen — it's the button with the red circle on it. You'll start recording immediately, and you'll see an audiograph of your voice begin to appear in the blank track below. You can also add a new track and start a new recording at the exact same time by pressing Shift + R. 5. When you're finished recording, click the stop button — the button with the black square — to the right of the recording button. This is how to record external sound using a microphone. If you want to record audio that's playing from your computer — say, from a game or YouTube video — you'll have to put in a bit more work. How to record sounds playing on your computer using Audacity On a PC 1. Open Audacity, and in the dropdown menu under "Audio Host," choose "Windows WASAPI." 2. In the recording device drop-down, choose your computer's default speakers or headphones. Depending on your setup, you might also need to pick the option labeled "Loopback." This will differ depending on what sort of sound card your PC has. 3. Create a new track and then begin recording, then start the game, video, or whatever else you want to record. On a Mac Unfortunately, there's no ready-made way to record computer audio using Audacity on a Mac. The easiest way to remedy this is to download a free add-on for Audacity — you can find a guide to these add-ons in the Audacity Wiki Manual. However, if you have a loopback cable — this is a headphone wire that has a 3.5 mm plug on each end — you can trick your Mac into recording itself, without downloading any extra software. Here's how. 1. Plug one end of the loopback cable into your Mac's headphone jack, and the other end into your Mac's microphone jack. If your Mac doesn't have a microphone jack, you're out of luck. 2. Open your System Preferences app by clicking the Apple logo in the top-left, and then selecting "System Preferences...". 3. Choose "Sound," then on the "Output" tab, select "Line Out." 4. Click on the "Input" tab, then select "Line Input." 5. Open Audacity, and make sure the recording device is set to "Built-in Input" or a similar option. 6. Click "Transport" at the top of the screen, hover your mouse over "Transport Options," and make sure that "Software Playthrough" doesn't have a checkmark next to it. If it does, click it to remove the checkmark. 7. Create a new track, and start recording, then start up whatever audio you want to be recorded from your computer.

He is allowed only 1.5 hours of screen time per week, a rule inspired by Spiegel's own parents not allowing him to watch TV until he was nearly a teenager.

Ford revealed the all-new Bronco SUV on Monday. The much-anticipated SUV was unveiled on multiple Disney-affiliated networks, as well as Ford's own broadcast and social channels. The new Bronco is both a family of vehicles and a dedicated off-roading brand. Ford revealed a two-door, a four-door, and a Sport version of the Bronco; all three SUVs have robust four-wheel-drive capability, and there are several engine and transmission options. Ford concentrated on "human-centric" design with the new Bronco, reinventing the development process to focus on the actual needs and desires of users.  The Bronco nameplate dates to 1965, but the vehicle was discontinued in 1996. The new Bronco is going up against Jeep and, to a degree, the upscale offerings from Land Rover. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Few vehicles have been as hotly anticipated as the new Bronco — and Ford just reveled the SUV in all its reimagined glory via three Disney-affiliated networks and the carmaker's own online and social channels. The Blue Oval dropped the Bronco nameplate in 1996, and ever since then, fans of the legendary machine, introduced in 1965, have been forced to content themselves with the used and collectibles market, with the latter commanding hefty prices. Ford had originally planned to unveile the Bronco at the equally all-new Detroit auto show in June (the event had been relocated from its traditional wintry position in January), but the coronavirus pandemic quashed that idea. So, as Ford did with the F-150 reveal, a virtual showcase was created. The new Bronco isn't just one SUV — it's a family of three vehicles, plus a new, standalone off-roading Bronco brand. The carmaker, led by CEO Jim Hackett, followed principles of human-centric design in developing the Bronco, leading to a completely reinvented process for the two-door, four-door, and Sport trim levels of the four-by-four. Take a closer look at the all-new Broncos:FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content! The all-new, 2021 Bronco has arrived! And it's a family of three different vehicles, as well as a standalone brand. The Bronco was created in 1965, at the same time as the iconic Mustang. But the nameplate was discontinued in 1996. The core of the new brand is the duo of hard-rock, off-roading Broncos: a two-door and a four-door, both body-on-frame designs. A Bronco Sport trim level is a smaller vehicle, built on a unibody platform. The original Bronco also came in multiple configurations, including a small pickup! Ford teased the trio in silhouette. The tagline for the new Bronco brand is "Built Wild," an extension of the "Built Ford Tough" slogan that the automaker has long used. The entire brand is pure 4x4 — there's no domesticated, all-wheel-drive drivetrain on offer. The two-door and four-door have front and rear locking differentials, and the Sport has its own system. The suspension is also optimized for off-roading, and Ford said crawl ratios and ground clearance are best-in-class. The four-door is a Bronco first. And all four doors can be removed! The door also come off the two-door ... ... and so does the roof .. ... creating an open-air, close-to-nature vibe that Ford learned its prospective customers would demand. The four-door Bronco also has a removable roof. Ford is aiming directly at Jeep with such features; Jeep's most rugged models can be taken apart. Ford's design process for the Bronco was extensive and drew on extensive exploration of what the icon meant to customers. Early ideas were actually deemed too envelope-pushing and updated, so designers pulled back. Designers used low-cost prototypes to experiment with "human-centric" design. Designers even revamped the old Bronco badge ... ... making the new badge more streamlined. But there's no Blue Oval Ford badge on the Bronco — just this bold lettering on the grille. The headlights look simple, but the bisected designs is high-tech. Bronco is rolling out with 200 accessories (100 for Bronco Sport), including cut-out doors (the door, by the way, are frameless, to make the lightweight and stowable). Designers combined the Bronco's history of dramatic colors with mellow, earthy tones for exteriors and interiors. If it's a Ford, it has to tow! The Sport tops out at 2,200 lbs., while the two-door and four-doors can handle 3,500 lbs. Bronco has been designed for outdoor lifestyles. The back ends of the SUVs have been configured so that they can be camping command centers. Designers also thought deeply about various pain points. For example, the Bronco Sport can safely accommodate two regular-size mountain bikes. Depending on trim level, the Bronco can drive into ... ... And drive out of up to 33.5-inches of water. The SUVs have been engineered to handle rocks, mud, sand, ice, and snow. Owners could start with a base Bronco, moving up through Big Ben, Black Diamond, and Outer Banks setups. Wildtrak and Badlands are for serious off-roaders. "A limited-production First Edition will be offered at launch," Ford said. Bronco Sport comes in Big Bend, Outer Banks, Badlands and First Edition series. That's right, you can hose the dirt out of your Bronco! The Bronco is a body-on-frame design, while the Sport is unibody. The Bronco two-door and four-doors will be made in the US, while the Sport will be assembled in Mexico. Bronco arrives with three engine options: a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, making 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque; a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, making 270 hp and 310 lb-ft. of torque; and for the Bronco Sport, a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder making 245 hp with 275 lb-ft. of torque and a 1.5-liter three-cylinder making 181 hp with 190 lb-ft. of torque. Broncos are launching with a 10-speed automatic ... ... And an available seven-speed manual transmission. The Bronco Sport has up-to seven "G.O.A.T." ("goes over any type of terrain) modes, Ford said. A range of interiors will be in offer. Surfaces and buttons have been designed for ease of use, particularly in demanding outdoor realms and in variable climates. Infotainment and connectivity comes via Ford's latest SYNC4 system; each Bronco is also equipped with Ford's Co-Pilot 360 advanced driver-assist features. Plus, the navigation system includes trail maps. But Bronco also has interior features that enable owners to use their own devices. Ford said customers could reserve a new Bronco for $100. The two-door SUV starts at $29,995. Ford didn't release pricing for the four-door or the Bronco Sport. The lineup goes in sale in early 2021.

TV chef Tom Kerridge has blasted a “selfish” group of 27 customers who made a booking at his London restaurant this weekend, but ultimately failed to turn up. Tom criticised the “disgraceful” no-showers for putting jobs at risk during the coronavirus pandemic, at a time when many businesses like his are having to adapt to changes.In a post on Instagram, Tom addressed those who failed to cancel their tables at his Kerridge’s Bar At Grill at The Corinthia Hotel in London’s West End on Saturday night, calling them “the worst kind of guest”.  “This industry, like many others is on the verge of collapse,” he wrote. “Your behaviour is disgraceful, shortsighted and down right unhelpful. All of you ‘no shows’ in all restaurants up and down the country are adding to the issues already being faced.”The Michelin-starred chef continued: “YOU are putting peoples jobs more at risk. We put staff levels to the number of covers booked and when you fail to turn up, it now costs us, which in turn will force very uncomfortable and hard decisions about staffing levels.“You are the worst kind of guest, and that is selfish’. I hope you have good look at yourselves.”Tom, who is known as a chef on TV shows including How To Lose Weight For Good and Food & Drink, also shared a picture of Gerard Butler in the film 300 to further convey his anger.
