Japan's snow monkeys de-stress in hot springs

  • Located in Joshinetsu Kogen National Park in Japan's Nagano prefecture, the primate-only onsen is world-famous as the preferred simian hot spring.
  • The snow monkeys' onsen practice isn't solely about warming their bodies or bobbing for apples -- like the Japanese and visitors to Japan, they seem to appreciate onsen for its stress-reducing properties.
  • Since the macaque's thick coats keep them warm, and they take a dip even when there are no apples in sight, researchers' studying the monkeys at Jigokudani believe hot springs function primarily to ease their tension.
  • Since the monkeys don't swim every day (in spite of their warm fur coats, they seem to prefer the hot springs on colder days), visitors will want to plan accordingly before heading north to the park.
  • Time of day is a critical piece of planning, too: Jigokudani Monkey Park requires an overnight stay to catch the monkey's early morning soak.

Can you charge tuition on a credit card?

  • Even if you are using a no annual fee credit card, the additional costs that come with charging a tuition payment can add up quickly to outweigh any cash back or rewards you may be redeeming.
  • If you were to use a card like this one, you would have 18 months to pay off your tuition payment — but it is essential that you pay off the full balance before the 0% introductory period ends.
  • On the other hand, if you plan to attend a 2-year degree program at a public university where the average tuition and fees cost $3,730, it may make sense to charge this, assuming you have a plan to pay the balance off in full before the 0% introductory period on your credit card ends.

Five Tips For Coding Interviews

  • Whether you're frontend or backend, knowing these tips, and practicing them before your interview, will ensure you put your best foot forward and hopefully land a job offer!
  • Thus it's important to think through all of the key information you'll need to solve the problem, and ask if something is unclear.
  • If you simply BS the answer and pretend you know what you're talking about, this indicates that you're not a truthful person and you likely won't receive a job offer.
  • Additionally if you ever receive a coding challenge question that you've seen the solution for or have already gotten in a past interview, be honest about it.
  • For example if you're asked to write an algorithm which determines whether there is a loop (or a broken edge) in a binary tree, think about the possible use cases.

Taxi boss says Ola and Didi won't catch Uber

  • The chief executive of the company which operates the 13cabs taxi network says new ride-sharing entrants like Ola and Didi will find it very hard to make inroads into the powerful position established by Uber because they are only competing on price.
  • Mr Skelton says there won't be room in the end for all of the new ride-sharing firms in the market, with Ola and Didi effectively trying to claw away customers from Uber with price-driven strategies.
  • Mr Skelton said the 13cabs brand was resonating with consumers after heavy marketing investment and improvements in technology.
  • Mr Skelton said A2B Ltd would make small cost savings from the dismantling of private radio networks used by taxis which had been use for decades in Sydney and Newcastle, with the company shfiting to public networks which offered better prospects for technology upgrades.
