Saturday assorted links

1. New York Film Festival looks strong this year.

2. Tattoo artists in Japan no longer need medical licenses.

3. “The RCMP in Alberta have charged a 20-year-old British Columbia man with speeding while he was asleep at the wheel of a Tesla electric car.

4. Messi vs. Massi: “Footballer Lionel Messi can register his name as a trademark after a nine-year legal battle, the EU’s top court has ruled.”

5. Day one of voting the polity that is Fairfax.

6. The making of a Harvard department chair (somewhat depressing, actually).  “Nearly half of the 40 department chairs in Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences received tenure within Harvard and nearly three-quarters have been teaching at the University for more than 15 years, an analysis by The Crimson found.”

7. The importance of protein folding, with a role for citizen scientists too (New Yorker).
