    The researchers used small flakes of a material called bismuth tellurium selenide.
    Just wait until they try bismuth praesodymium selenide.

    I knew they would use quantum computers for porn.

    The trouble is the actors keep on changing and intermingling, a particle should not mix with waves, especially in Alabama.

    I guess you have to develop the cheese qrds first. Trump's complaints about Canadian dairy practices should nicely impede that. (Sad, really, since Canada has a $400 million trade DEFICIT with the US on dairy products. We just have to be made to suffer because of collective marketing processes.)

    You might get lumbered with some soft lumber news this week too

    Yup. We're still trying to figure out what he meant by us being unfair in energy, though. Unless he scraps NAFTA the trade in energy is guaranteed to the US at our domestic prices and can't be shut off however dearly we might like to.

    One of the worst culture shocks I experienced when I first went to Canada to work was... milk in bags. Whaaat? A big plastic bag containing three smaller plastic bags of milk. It took me a couple of days to find that I needed a "milk pitcher" which is designed to accept one of the smaller bags and keep it from spilling all over the refrigerator.

    The second worst shock was when I went into a convenience store and couldn't find the beer. Because there is no beer in Canadian (or at least Ontarionian) convenience stores! How inconvenient is that!

    China builds five qubit quantum computer sampling and will scale to 20 qubits by end of this year and could any beat regular computer next year.

    Simulated Quantum Annealing on regular computers can handle up to a million variable optimization.

    I believe that anyone can sign up for a free account with IBM's setup. 5 Qbits, so you can't do much more than play around a bit. Supposedly, they'll expand that later this year.

    Hmm. No mention of error correction.

    No. Still experimental.
