    From Alexa to Siri and the GDPR: The Gendering of Virtual Personal Assistants and the Role of EU Data Protection Law

    "Siri" is a Nordic name meaning the beautiful woman who leads you to victory. "Alexa" is a derivative of Alexandra and Alexander. The etymology of Alexa is from the Greek "alexo" (to defend) and "ander" ("man"),denoting, then,"the defender of man". Alexa was also one of the epithets given to the Greek goddess "Hera" (the goddess of fertility and marriage) and was taken to mean "the one who comes to save warriors".

During the Depression, Post Toasties decided to use cartoon animals on its boxes and paid its cartoonist $1.5 million in the first year.

    Brunch - Wikipedia

    Brunch originated in England in the late 19th century and became popular in the United States in the 1930s.

    In many regions of Canada, in particular in Southern Ontario, brunch is popular on Sundays when families will often host relatives or friends in their dining room. The typical brunch can last a few hours and go late into the afternoon. Montreal-style bagels may be served alongside egg dishes, waffles or crepes, smoked meat or fish, fruit, salads, cheese, and dessert.
