Just wanted to share this headline:

 >>Edmonton lab gets first ever Japanese Microscope

For me, "first ever" means that it did not exist before. Not so for this
Canadian headline--these microscopes have never been built or operated
outside of Japan, but they've certainly been in existence in Japan for
some time.
