Here's some real Canadian modem art.

I especially like the Tim Horton's coffee on the tray.
What really makes me laugh is how the more conservative a person is, the more they're likely to focus on the superficial nudity, to be disgusted by it, and to not recognize the condemnation of the lies, the secrecy, and the paranoia that characterized Harper's dictatorship.

Somebody in Vancouver bought the painting for $20 000.00.

//Ghahramani said he is pleased with the purchase.

"Every time I look at it I burst out laughing," Ghahramani said. "I do that with all biting political satire. I also understand that it doesn't come from a vulgar point of making fun of the prime minister. It comes from a very dark, depressing point."//

Sodium-ion batteries.
Given lithium's relative scarcity, this could be a great idea.
Given humanity's habit of increasing consumption in sync with increased efficiency or availability, maybe not so much. 
For the first time ever, a battery has been developed using sodium ions rather than lithium ions in the industry standard "18650" format used in laptop batteries, LED flashlights and the Tesla Model S, among other products.

A classic #facepalm by Sabine Hossenfelder as she deconstructs some anti-science claptrap.

Converging lines of evidence implicate the beta-amyloid peptide (Aβ) as causative in Alzheimer's disease. We describe a novel class of compounds that reduce Aβ production by functionally inhibiting γ-secretase,

On the right now side of the coin, evidence suggests that polyphenols and other glucosides found in many herbals such as red sage root, turmeric (curcumin), cinnamon and numerous Chinese herbs can have a preventative effect.
Take caffeine also, it has been shown to make the above work better. You can get it other places besides coffee though. Coffee with cream and sugar is not the preferred method and probably does more harm than good. Red sage decoction tastes like coffee anyway. It's actually quite good...then you can get your caffeine from regular tea. It has a lot of benefits; they're going to make (extract just one compound) a heart drug from it.
I like it better than I ever did coffee. It's thicker in texture and also flavor notes. I mix it with other things, other Chinese herbs mostly, but I like it straight the best, although Angelica is pretty good.

Heaven for pen "enthusiasts." The staff have outstanding knowledge about all kinds of pens. They're very careful to ensure that you try every pen before buying it, even letting you choose the ink into which they'll dip the fountain pens. They also gave me a 'free' Pelikan ballpoint (with their logo) and a book about the most interesting historical shops of Milan (they're mentioned in it). They let me take a picture of their "pen vault" - literally a vault for pens.

Teeny weeny restaurant; maybe a dozen tables. Often full up; make sure you make a reservation. The food is very good, but the menu was, I thought, limited and invariant. The service is a bit too posh for my liking, but all the staff (including the owner) is discreet, attentive, and professional.

Simple, inexpensive setting rather like a family restaurant but with a touch of creative chic. Like Queen St W used to be in the 80s. Great food; again simple at heart but everything has a special subtle twist. Very reasonable prices. Genuine, helpful, attentive staff. Perhaps a bit too attentive, but better too much than too little. Will definitely go back there.

Very modestly priced Pho. We started with a serving of chicken spring rolls, which were quite good; just the right amount of flavour. I had the chicken Pad Thai, which was a bit bland and greasy. Good portion size. My wife had a beef Pho. Too much gristle & tendon for our Italian sensibilities, but lots of fresh veggies and a nice broth. The service was fast and attentive without being sycophantic. The place itself was clean and well-lit. We were lucky to get a booth because they had these rather odd chairs that I'm not sure would be that comfortable.

Great food. But the service is so atrocious you'll barely be able to keep the food down. Example: We had a reservation for 13 at 4pm. It was my father-in-law's birthday. We were on time. We brought our own cake. They didn't take our order till 4:30 - not even the drinks! We then waited 40 minutes for the food, even though the place was only 1/2 full. It took them 10 minutes to just bring the food to the table. We were ravenous by then and were all finished in 10 minutes. We had to wait another 30 minutes for them to bring the cake and coffee. They didn't bring plates or cutlery for the cake, and we had to tell them that they had to cut and serve the cake. Another 15 minutes pass. And they look at you like it's your fault! The people who work at Desserts Plus are useless bags of skin. They are navel lint. They are pustules on the buttocks of the universe. I can imagine a masochist might enjoy Desserts Plus, but no one else will.

Barely noticeable from the street, this great spot for thai food is one of the most reliable restaurants I know. Consistency of cooking and service are excellent. The food is not especially overpowering in flavour, and ranges from truly mild to not-insanely-spicy. I have had about half the items on their menu and never once been disappointed. The decor is a pastiche of a dozen different styles, but who cares? The food rocks. The staff is always helpful and kind, though sometimes a lack of experience and training is evident. Nonetheless, their hearts invariably are in the right place. Highly recommended.
