Hearing loss sucks. It’s exhausting. I’ve suffered from partial hearing loss in both ears since the mid 2000’s. In order to function in the real world, I’m forced to exist in a state of constant vigilance. I have to actively listen all the time in order to avoid creating an environment where people are constantly raising their voice at me. Over time I developed a methodology for interpreting physical and verbal cues to understand what people were saying to me in situations where it was difficult to hear – such as at a conference or at a table with multiple…

While 99% of you are stuck here on Earth like a herd of disgusting millionaires – or worse, actual poor people – a bunch of billionaires have spent their summer preparing for jaunts into the inky black beyond. Honest question: who cares? I love space as much as the next person. And I think it’s amazing that humans have managed to ascend beyond the clouds and into the very stars we’ve gazed upon from the moment our ancestors slithered out of the primordial ooze and began developing the iPhone. It was super cool when the first primate went to space in 1949 (RIP…

Bars and pubs should face the threat of losing their licenses if they fail to act on sexual harassment on their premises, a shadow minister has said.

Jess Phillips told HuffPost UK’s Commons People podcast she used to work in bars and that there is often an “attitude” in venues of not wanting to punish “good customers” and “regulars”.

But the shadow domestic violence minister said that proprietors must have a responsibility to do something about harassment if it is reported to them.

Phillips spoke following an intensifying political focus on women’s safety after the killing of Sarah Everard sparked an outpouring of stories on social media about abuse and harassment.

The government has taken steps to clamp down on crimes against women, including by asking police in England and Wales to record if offences are “motivated” by misogyny. 

But Phillips questioned Boris Johnson’s plans for undercover police to be sent to bars and clubs, saying she was told that they would be deployed in areas “that have really high rates of assault and they think there are prolific offenders there”.

Jess Phillips on the BBC1 current affairs programme, The Andrew Marr Show

She told Commons People: “Can I just ask why that hasn’t happened already and why those places still have their licenses?”

Asked if premises should have their licenses put under threat if there is a lot of crime happening at that venue, Phillips replied: “Yes absolutely, absolutely.

“Actually the Equality Act already... under the Equality Act, although most people aren’t going to instigate this – if you report it to the proprietor they have a responsibility to do something about it.

“That’s why lots of bars have security.

“So they have a responsibility to clear it out.

“And if they don’t...I used to work in bars and there was an attitude that was – ‘he’s a regular, it doesn’t matter that he feels your arse when you’re walking past’, ‘oh he’s a good customer’ – you get a lot of that.”

Phillips called on politicians to use this moment to take cross-party action to improve women’s safety.

But she pointed out that ministers failed to implement an employees’ “duty to prevent” sexual harassment of employees, despite it being recommended by the Commons women and equalities committee.

“After the MeToo movement lots of us campaigned, in fact the women and equalities select committee wrote a report and we recommended to the government that they put in a duty on employers to prevent, so that if they hadn’t acted to prevent and somebody was abused who was one of their employees, they would be liable as an employee.

“Obviously what do you think the government did? Nothing, they did nothing.

“They did nothing about the last moment we had, no piece of legislation has changed to make women any safer at work from sexual harassment.”

Samsung is today announcing its upper tier of 2021 8K and 4K HDR TVs. And like TCL and LG before it, the company is moving to a more precise backlighting system that uses Mini LED technology for improved contrast and greater picture quality than its previous full-array local dimming systems — and Samsung’s premium QLED LCD TVs were already impressive.

The latest Mini LED advancements are being branded as “Neo QLED” and will be found in several different tiers in the 2021 lineup. There are two 8K models: the QN900A (a successor to last year’s top-tier 8K QLED with barely there bezels) and the QN800A. From there, three series of 4K TVs will get Mini LED: the QN95A, QN90A, and QN85A.

Mini LED lets Samsung pack more LEDs...
