Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images Facebook has removed a post posted by President Donald Trump’s account for violations of its misinformation policy, the company confirmed to The Verge. The video posted was of a Trump interview with Fox News’ Fox & Friends program, in which the president claimed children are “almost immune” to COVID-19, which is false.

And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”Warner Bros, which produces The Ellen DeGeneres Show, also announced it will make staffing changes as well as taking “appropriate measures to address the issues that have been raised” after an internal review found “deficiencies related to the show’s day-to-day management”.Ellen, who has hosted the Ellen DeGeneres Show since 2003, has since faced calls to step down. The comedian and actress is known for her bubbly on-screen persona and “be kind” mantra, but that image has been rocked by recent allegations. Buzzfeed spoke to former employees who made allegations of racism, unfair dismissal, intimidation and an overall toxic environment, perpetuated by the show’s senior producers.READ MORE: Executive Producer Of Ellen DeGeneres Show Denies Cancellation Rumours Ellen DeGeneres Apologises Following Reports Of A Toxic Culture On Her US Chat Show Ellen DeGeneres Show Under Investigation After Reports Of Workplace Misconduct

Since then, several proposals, such as remote trials, have been put forward to address how jury trials might continue, and how to tackle the backlog of crown court cases which currently stands at over 40,500. Jury trials are used in the most serious criminal cases and are generally seen as fair, representative, and an essential part of the UK criminal justice system, which works on the presumption… This story continues at The Next Web

You can connect an Alexa-enabled speaker to your Xbox One to control your Xbox One with your voice. Once you connect Alexa to your Xbox One, you can use voice commands to turn on your Xbox One console, adjust the volume, launch games and apps, and more. Connecting Alexa to your Xbox One involves changing the settings on your console, then going through your Alexa app to complete the connection. You'll need to have an Alexa-enabled device, such as an Amazon Echo, set up beforehand. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.   A wireless Xbox One controller is pretty cool. Even better? Navigating and controlling Xbox with just your voice. While you'll still need to use your hands to play all your favorite games, connecting an Alexa-enabled device to an Xbox One allows you to use voice commands to control everything, from the volume level to whichever app is open. To do this, you'll just need your Xbox One, an Alexa-enabled device, and an iPhone or Android device with the Alexa app. Check out the products mentioned in this article: iPhone 11 (From $699 at Apple) Samsung Galaxy S10 (From $699.99 at Walmart) Xbox One S (from $389.95 at Amazon) Amazon Echo (from $79.99 at Amazon) How to connect Alexa to your Xbox One Enable Instant-on First of all, you need to set your Xbox to "Instant-on" mode. This lets your Xbox go into a sort of resting mode instead of turning off, and is required to connect and use your Alexa-enabled device. To do this: 1. Turn on your Xbox One and press the Home button — this is the big Xbox logo in the middle of your controller — to open a menu of options. 2. In the row of options along the top of this menu, scroll all the way to the right, to open the "System" menu. Once there, select "Settings." 3. Scroll down to "Power & Startup," and then select "Power mode & startup." 4. In the new menu, scroll over to the middle column, labeled "Power mode." Select it, and then in the drop-down menu, select "Instant-on." Enable digital assistants Now, to connect your virtual assistant with your gaming console, you need to change the digital assistant settings on your Xbox One. 1. Once again, turn on your Xbox One and press the Home button, then scroll over to the right to select "Settings." 2. In "Settings," choose "Kinect & devices." Then, select "Digital assistants." 3. Select "Enable digital assistants." If prompted, sign into your Xbox account. Connect your Alexa-enabled device Once you've done that, you'll need to switch over to your phone to complete the process: 1. Open the Alexa app and tap the menu icon at the top-left. 2. Tap "Skills & Games" on the menu that opens. 3. Tap the magnifying glass and search for "Xbox." Once it appears in the search results, tap it. 4. Tap "Enable to Use," and then sign into the Microsoft account linked to your Xbox One. The two devices are now linked. Alexa commands to use on Xbox One After following the above steps, Amazon Alexa is now connected to Xbox One.  Here is a list of Alexa voice commands that work with Xbox One: "Alexa, tell Xbox to pause" "Alexa, tell Xbox to resume" "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn up the volume" "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn the volume down by 50 percent" "Alexa, tell Xbox to turn off" "Alexa, tell Xbox to launch Rocket League" "Alexa, tell Xbox to launch Netflix" "Alexa, tell Xbox to start broadcasting" "Alexa, ask Xbox what I can say" Related coverage from Tech Reference: How to remove a paired device from Alexa, and disconnect it from your smart home setup How to use Discord on your Xbox One to show your friends what games you're playing How to change Alexa's alarm sound on your Amazon Echo, or change its volume How to make games and apps download faster on your Xbox One in 5 ways How to change the Wi-Fi network on your Alexa-enabled smart speaker SEE ALSO: The best gaming PCs Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Pathologists debunk 13 coronavirus myths
