Boast.ai raises $23M to help businesses get their R&D tax credits

Ruby Rose stepped down from the mantle of Batwoman after the first season of the series came to an end earlier this year.

Keeping Cool: An Architect-Designed Ice Cream Shop in Vancouver

Mister Ice Cream in Vancouver offers the latest dessert craze—ice cream made to order using liquid nitrogen. (The technique has been popular in Asia for some time, say owners Michael Lai and Tommy Choi, and in San Francisco, Smitten Ice Cream is leading the charge.) Unlike readymade ice cream, which requires stabilizers such as eggs, the nitrogen technique mixes only fresh cream and milk with flavorings like sugar, salt, or chocolate. The ice cream, they report, is denser, smoother, and creamier...

Canucks’ 4 Best All-Time

It is entirely possible that we’ve already seen the final games of the 2019-20 NHL season, as the COVID-19 suspension looms into Week 3. The longer the halt, the less likely it is that the season will resume. With that in consideration, this season was a special season for the Vancouver Canucks as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. Funnily enough, they have actually only played 48 seasons, since their debut in the league was the 1970-71 season (making the 2020-21 season the official 50-y...
