Earlier this year, Nvidia released RTX Voice, a beta software to process audio and suppress almost all background noise, and it worked amazingly well. My colleague Jon Porter made the sound of his clacking mechanical keyboard completely disappear. Today, Nvidia has released a successor app called Broadcast, and it’s available to download now. Nvidia Broadcast is a follow-up to the RTX Voice beta and introduces two new AI-powered features: Virtual Background and Auto Frame. Nvidia says that the noise removal feature also now has a reduced performance cost and supports triple the number of noise profiles.

A “Fox & Friends” phone conversation with Donald Trump came to an awkward end on Tuesday after co-host Steve Doocy knocked back the US president’s assertion that he’ll appear on the show weekly through Election Day.Trump, who had a recurring spot on the Fox News morning show before he ran for president, started the phone interview by saying he’d agreed to call in on a weekly basis, “like the old days.” “I haven’t heard that, well that’s an exclusive right there,” Doocy exclaimed.As the call came to an end nearly an hour later, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked if the chats would continue weekly.Trump replied: “Yeah, we’re going to do it every week, every Monday, I think they said. And if we can’t do it on a Monday we’ll do it on a Tuesday like we did today.”“Sounds good,” Kilmeade said.“Mr. President, thank you very much. You may want to do it every week, but Fox has not committed to that,” Doocy then added. “We’re going to take it on a case-by-case basis. And Joe Biden, as well, is always welcome to join us for 47 minutes, like we just did with the president.”The Democratic presidential nominee has not appeared on the conservative network in the lead-up to the election. Network hosts have said the Biden campaign has declined multiple requests.Donald Trump: "We're gonna [call into Fox & Friends] every week. Every Monday I think they said."Brian Kilmeade: "Sounds good."Steve Doocy, after Trump hangs up: "You may want to do it every week, but Fox is not committed to that, and we'll take it on a case-by-case basis." pic.twitter.com/VnIHyofm36— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) September 15, 2020Trump is a veteran “Fox & Friends” guest and featured on the “Monday Mornings with Trump” segment from 2011 until announcing his presidential run in 2015. He routinely used that platform to project his racist and baseless birther conspiracy theory about former President Barack Obama.CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter, whose new book “Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth” explores Trump’s relationship with the conservative network, noted that Trump harnessed those weekly appearances to tap into Fox News’ Republican base and that he may be instigating an attempt to reopen that powerful avenue to reach his base directly in the final weeks of the election season.While he no longer has a segment, Trump’s extended conversations have been a regular fixture on the program throughout his candidacy and presidency.Related... 4 Lies In 1 Sentence: CNN Fact-Checker Says Trump May Have Just Set A Record Trump: I Wanted To Assassinate Assad Has Extremism Taken Over US Politics?

Last week, India banned PlayerUnknown’s BattleGround (PUBG) along with 118 other Chinese apps, citing security concerns. Now, in order to reverse this ban, PUBG Corp., the company that owns the intellectual property of the game, has distanced itself from Tencent, which was distributing the mobile version of the game in the country. The company said it’s working with the government to bring the game back to India, once it’s compliant with local laws.

Ring Ring cameras and doorbells will soon be able to connect with Lutron’s smart lighting systems, so you can set lights to turn on automatically when your Ring device detects movement. It’s a useful feature to either welcome home a family member arriving late at night, or scare off a would-be intruder at the door. Lutron Caseta, Caseta Pro, and RA2 Select systems will support the integration with all generations of Ring doorbells and cameras. Once connected, the linked lights will turn on for 15 minutes at 100 percent brightness. According to Lutron’s about page, however, there isn’t currently a way to adjust the settings so the lights turn off earlier or later, or to set them to turn on at a different brightness. You also can apply... Continue reading…

Politicians shouting, jeering and heckling in the UK parliament is “alienating”  the public and the majority want the coarse behaviour to stop, a new survey has shown.  More than half (51%) of people would like to see an end to the chaos that accompanies parliamentary debates, most notably during prime minister’s questions, polling reveals. Just one in five (20%) think that it is an important tradition that should be allowed to continue. The adversarial tone is often cited by politicians as a reason why the public are put off politics. Dormer prime minister David Cameron said that he thought voters were tired of what he described as “Punch and Judy politics”.But since the Covid-19 outbreak, a more sober tone has been struck in the House of Commons as a result of social distancing.The polling, conducted by Opinium in partnership with Compassion in Politics, comes as MPs return to parliament on Tuesday following the summer recess. It also showed that almost seven in 10 (69%) think MPs should be allowed to continue joining debates online rather than in person after Covid.This includes 39% who believe they should always be able to dial-in to debates and 30% who think the option to join digitally should remain in place after Covid but debates in person should continue to be the norm. Only 20% said that debates should always be in person post-pandemic. The polling was conducted for Compassion in Politics, which is working cross-party to reform parliamentary processes so that they are more inclusive. It is currently working with the All Party Group for Compassionate Politics on a “Compassion Pledge” which they will be asking MPs to commit to behaving with respect, kindness and compassion.Debbie Abrahams, co-chair of the All Party Group for Compassionate Politics, said: “The gradual coarsening of parliamentary debate is having a seriously detrimental effect on our politics.“Not only has it limited the potential for considered, detailed, and constructive discussion, it is alienating to the public and disrespectful to members. It does not have to be like this.“A mature democracy such as the UK should exhibit a more mature and respectful form of debate, as parliaments from many other countries already do. It is time we caught up.”Jennifer Nadel, co-director of Compassion in Politics, said: “Parliament is out of step with the public. It’s arcane debating traditions have created a combative and hostile environment in which bullying and misogyny are rife.“A mature democracy needs a process of decision making that promotes discussion, collaboration, and inclusive outcomes not one that resembles a playground. “The hiatus caused by Covid and the upcoming repair work to the Palace of Westminster provide a unique opportunity to modernise our dysfunctional parliament.”

In the days since Sen. Kamala Harris was tapped to become Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, some not-so-typical political jabs have cannonballed their way into the media. While it’s normal for vice presidential candidates to be grilled and criticised, especially in the period directly after they’re thrust into the spotlight, Harris, a former presidential candidate herself, has already seen most of her dirty laundry aired out to dry. But now, her opponents on the right have turned to classic misogynoir — a term that refers to “the anti-Black racist misogyny that Black women experience” — to rebuke her.Most notably, there were President Donald Trump’s initial remarks about Harris: “She left [the presidential race] angry. She left mad. There was nobody more insulting to Biden than she was.” While it’s a known fact that Harris was a staunch critic of Biden’s previous politics, the “angry Black woman” trope was clear throughout Trump’s attacks.Though many politicians are often characterised as being “tough” or even “harsh” toward an opponent or topic, Harris was specifically pegged as “angry” in regards to the same behaviour, something that women of colour and Black women in particular are forced to combat daily.Then, some media outlets started using misogynoir in a different way. In Australia, for example, a political ad in The Australian used misogynoir by portraying an ageing Biden offering to hand the nation over “to this little brown girl.” And in the United States, a sports reporter was fired for sharing a meme that referred to Harris as a “hoe.”In an age when the concept of intersectionality is placing social issues in a newer, “woke” context, misogynoir artfully summarises the ways in which Black women are attacked on the basis of both gender and race. While the term is often used in discussions within the Black community, it also applies to mainstream situations like the ones mentioned above.By discounting our passions and creating a negative connotation around the subject of anger, Black women are pushed into a proverbial corner of silence and discouraged from expressing an 'aggressive' emotion.One of the many damaging effects of misogynoiristic profiles, such as the “angry Black woman,” is that they both demonise and invalidate righteous anger. By discounting our passions and creating a negative connotation around the subject of anger, Black women are pushed into a proverbial corner of silence and discouraged from expressing an “aggressive” emotion.This stereotype has empowered white supremacy and misogyny to harness the anger of racial and ethnic minorities, and the result is the general belief that 1) their anger is unwarranted, and 2) their anger is unproductive at best and destructive at worst.The truth is that anger is completely constructive and has long been the catalyst for reformation in modern society.The soul of virtually every modern American protest was rooted in a form of anger, including the Boston Tea Party, the American Revolution, the women’s suffrage movement, the Vietnam War protests, ACT UP and Black Lives Matter, just to name a few.When I wrote about being an angry Black woman myself just a few months ago, it was important to not only reclaim the phrase but also illuminate just how crucial anger can be to improve our society.Anger gives birth to petitions, protests, demonstrations and other direct actions and social movements. It powers grassroots organisations and can inspire people to use and lift up their voices. Demonising anger is a barrier to progress. Anger, after all, is a strong feeling of displeasure. To disrupt oppressive or inefficient systems, you must first be able to identify the problem and your dissatisfaction with it. And, my goodness, there certainly are a great deal of things to be displeased about, aren’t there?More than 170,000 Covid-19 fatalities.The active and intentional destruction of the U.S. Postal ServiceThe United States’ withdrawal from the World Health Organization and United Nations Human Rights CouncilStruggling economies in small-town AmericaVoter suppressionPolice brutality and social unrestSystemic racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobiaEnvironmental changesViolence against women and trans peopleMass shootingsThe list goes on and on.The incredible thing about anger is that it can be channeled into creating change and doing good. My anger led me to activism, as it has for so many other Black women, including Black Lives Matter founders Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi and Alicia Garza, and fellow activists Tarana Burke, Raquel Willis and Johnetta Elzie. Anger is why I petitioned my state leadership in 2016 after they passed a bill seeking to conceal police body cameras. Anger is why millions of people around the world took to the streets during a pandemic to protest police brutality. Anger is why more than 130 Black women are congressional candidates for major parties this year.As the election looms, I’ve thought a lot about voter suppression. I read Stacey Abrams’ book on suffrage, ”Our Time Is Now,” and was inspired by the way she took her anger following Georgia’s 2018 gubernatorial election catastrophe and turned it into Fair Fight, the nonprofit that promotes fair elections, voter participation and voter education in the United States. I know that our American freedoms come with the responsibility for us to be watchdogs of those in power ― and that anything falling short of our American ideals should indeed make us angry.I’ve been volunteering for North Carolina’s voter protection hotline and have heard about the personal obstacles that make voting difficult for many people — rural residents who can’t print their ballot requests because they don’t have internet access, essential workers who don’t trust mail-in voting but don’t get time off to wait in line to vote, a single dad who doesn’t have anyone over the age of 18 in his household to act as a witness for an absentee ballot and doesn’t know anyone who will meet with him due to Covid-19 concerns. None of these things should be an issue in the United States, and yet they are.When dissatisfaction over injustice ― aka anger ― grows inside me, I know it’s a sign that I need to do more. I know it’s the same sign that guided women before me, such as Angela Davis and Fannie Lou Hamer, to make their voices heard so our nation could become better. I know anger is what made Michelle Obama’s fiery speech on Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention so powerful and so widely praised. I know that our American freedoms come with the responsibility for us to be watchdogs of those in power ― and that anything falling short of our American ideals should indeed make us angry. If we lack anger in the face of corruption, we flirt with ― or fall head first into ― a state of apathy, which is a direct threat to our future. People may call Kamala Harris or Michelle Obama “angry” as if they have no right to be dissatisfied, but we must ask ourselves: Are we satisfied? Are we satisfied with Donald Trump’s administration? Are we satisfied with our sheriffs and judges, our cabinet members and the Supreme Court, our foreign relations and infrastructure? Are we satisfied with representatives calling their female colleagues derogatory names? Are we satisfied with Jared Kushner’s promise that the economy would be “rocking” by July? Are we satisfied with Trump pardoning Susan B. Anthony (God rest her soul) while our nation’s children walk into coronavirus hotbeds at school? Or are you, no matter what race or gender, like so many of us, angry?While you’re considering where you stand, know this: you may call me, a proud Black woman, “angry” any day of the week. Not matter how it is intended ― no matter how hurt or harmed anyone, from our president to a stranger on the street, may intend for me to be, it is not a slur to me. It is not something to be ashamed of or to work on getting over or giving up. Acknowledging and embracing my anger means that I am engaged, I care and I’m committed to doing something productive with this powerful emotion. Shoutout to all the angry Black women who are living, loving and still persisting despite the seemingly insurmountable challenges that stand in our way.Candace Howze is a North Carolina-based writer, podcaster and multimedia artist.
