Weekend reading: Thousands of ‘penis fish’ washed up on a beach

What caught my eye this week. N aturalists have been surprised by the sight of thousands of 10-inch pulsating penis-like creatures wriggling about on a windswept beach.

But the recent storms brought on some waves that swept away the layers, leaving the...

Live music venues in Vancouver

Don’t listen to what travel columnists from supposedly prestigious publications say: Vancouver is not “mind-numbingly boring.” Actually, the city is so far from being dull that there are giant machines constantly crushing old buildings to make way for shiny new apartment towers to accommodate all the people desperately wanting to live here.

Estanislao Fernández, the 24-year-old son of newly-inaugurated Argentine President Alberto Fernández, set off a media blitz by wearing what looked like a rainbow-colored handkerchief to his father’s inauguration.

Observing "the gradual emergence, among professionally beautiful women, of a single, cyborgian face."

"It’s a young face, of course, with poreless skin and plump, high cheekbones. It has catlike eyes and long, cartoonish lashes; it has a small, neat nose and full, lush lips. It looks at you coyly but blankly... distinctly white but ambiguously ethnic.... 'It’s Instagram Face, duh. It’s like an unrealistic sculpture. Volume on volume. A face that looks like it’s made out of clay.'... There was something strange, I said, about the racial aspect of Instagram Face—it was as if the algorithmic tenden...

Public health crisis: Facebook ads misinform about HIV prevention drug

Facebook and Instagram users have been inundated with misleading ads about medication that prevents the transmission of HIV (PrEP), such as Truvada.Over the years, Facebook's hands-off ad policy has faced scrutiny when it comes to false or ambiguous information in its political ads. Unregulated "surveillance capitalism" commodifies people's personal information and makes them vulnerable to sometimes misleading ads.
