Underground Coffee Shops in London?

Way back in 1999, I was lucky enough to stumble on a full, real, "coffee shop" in Central London. A tiny and illicit slice of Amsterdam. Do such places still exist? [more inside]

Retrotransposon documentaries?

Retrotransposons tell us a lot of interesting things about evolution. Are there any great documentaries about them? Ideally it would talk about pufferfish genomes (hardly any retrotransposon content), the phylogeny of mammals and plants (lots of retrotransposon content in genomes that can help us trace family trees), the phylogeny of retrotransposons themselves (how are the different retrotransposons related to each other?) and the junk DNA vs. biologically active vs. evolutionarily active debate about retrotransposon content in genomes. Ideally, it would be aimed at a lay audience - Attenborough sort of stuff.

Search alerts still available on Facebook Marketplace?

I'm new to Facebook Marketplace. I would like to set up an alert for one of my searches on it, so I get a notification when a new listing is created that meets those search criteria. From Googling this I see that this rather obvious feature at least USED to exist, but it's proven so impossible for me to actually put in place for me that I wonder if it still exists. Does it exist, and if so, how do I do it?

Detroit-area fibromyalgia doctors or resources?

My wife suffers from fibromyalgia and needs a new doctor. We are moving to Detroit in two weeks, and we'll be staying in Midtown, Rosedale Park, or Bagley. One of the toughest things to leave behind is her care team. We'd like to find the right doctor: one who is engaged, supportive, focused on solutions, and doesn't over-perscribe. One with training in fibro and PTSD is better. One who is all of the above and connected to a research-level institution is the best. Detroiters, who do you or your friends see for primary care or specialty care ? Thanks so much!

BuzzfeedU in my news suggestions?

Suddenly my google discover news feed is filling up with recommendations from buzzfeedu (.com), though from the news feed it looks like regular Buzzfeed. When I click on it, I get all sorts of crap trying to take over my phone. If I try to block fake-BuzzfeedU as a source, will it also block real-Buzzfeed? Is there a way to block only fake-BuzzfeedU? I'll block both if I have to but would prefer not to.

Recommendations for UK- based website developers

I've recently been handed the responsibility for overhauling the website of a small healthcare-related association. Would anyone have any recommendations of a website developer that would do good work and be reasonably-priced? Ideally UK-based - I'm around Bristol/Birmingham so it might be easier if they were local, but not essential. Google brings up lots of options, but it would be great to get some word-of-mouth recommendations. [more inside]

Can I block someone on a 3rd party iCloud shared album?

I have gone NC (no contact) with a member of my family. He participates in commenting/liking photos on another family member's shared iCloud album. Is it possible to block him so I don't see his comments and he doesn't see mine, without asking the photo album owner to make any changes? I have googled and it looks like no, but thought I'd ask the hive mind here. He is blocked in my iPhone contacts already which seems to make no difference to iCloud album permissions.

It goes something like this: The hallmark of a good book is measured by how fast you read in the beginning and how much you slow down by the end. Thank you!

Best books about same sex parenting

I'm looking for some good books about same sex parenting to give to a lesbian couple with an adorable baby boy. They say they want something to prepare them to address the good, the bad and the ugly (ex: bullying, homophobic slurs, etc). Same sex marriage and parenting are legal in our country, if that makes any difference. Could you give some recs? Thanks in advance!
