UK: Santander plans to debut new online bank
QUOTE will launch a business banking service under a different brand name in the coming months, which the newspaper noted will surely increase competition in the market. The Spanish lender is also mulling bringing Openbank, its digital lending service, to the U.K. That unit has around 1.3 million customers in Spain, noted the report.

Santander is reportedly focusing on small companies and will provide a range of services that go beyond traditional lending, such as helping businesses with payrolls and pensions. According to the report, both Santander and RBS are embracing similar strategies to attract younger clients and to fight back against the rapid rise of online competitors, including Monzo and Tandem.

“We are working on a project to build an open digital financial services platform for SMEs. We look forward to sharing more about the platform soon,” a spokesperson for Santander told the Daily Telegraph.

Digital Photocopiers Loaded With Secrets - CBS News
Nearly every digital copier built since 2002 contains a hard drive - like the one on your personal computer - storing an image of every document copied, scanned, or emailed by the machine. In the process, it's turned an office staple into a digital time-bomb packed with highly-personal or sensitive data. If you're in the identity theft business it seems this would be a pot of gold. "The type of information we see on these machines with the social security numbers, birth certificates, bank records, income tax forms," John Juntunen said, "that information would be very valuable."

Banks should ‘segregate’ any bitcoin activities: ECB
QUOTE Due to the high volatility of VCs (virtual currencies) it might seem appropriate to require any VC trading to be backed by adequate levels of capital, and segregated from other trading and investment activities,” European Central Bank board member Yves Mersch said in a speech in Turkey.

The warning comes as regulators worldwide grapple with how to respond to the boom in so-called cryptocurrencies like bitcoin

Junot Díaz did a Q&A at the grad program I'd just graduated from. When I made the mistake of asking him a question about his protagonist's unhealthy, pathological relationship with women, he went off for me for twenty minutes.

I'm not attempting to add an “extra commentary”; I just wanted to be supportive of @carmenmmachado and echo the sentiment that people deserve to be treated with respect. That's it. I wasn't responding to @pronounced_ing; I was responding to Carmen's original tweet.

2. 香港的就業情況(一般科目,有博士學位)︰

【助理教授】
一年3至5科,起薪大概5萬,入職3年約,續3年約,然後終身職(tenure)(這是表面,有些學系沒錢,你做得再好6年後也要另謀高就),為了降低成本,這種職位的比例不斷下降,博士畢業生卻太多,競爭很大。

【講師】
每星期平均上課10至18小時,起薪大概3萬,合約1至2年,有些幾年後會轉長工,但趨勢是越來越少。

【兼任講師】
時薪450至1千多點,逐個課程簽約,一個3學分的學科共有2至6萬,但這是一個學期的收入,如果不計暑期即是6個月的薪酬,要有像樣的收入要兼幾科,不到差不多開學都不知道下一個學期或學年有沒有課給你。沒有辦公室,有些有辦公桌,暑假時可以連圖書館都進不去,因為合約只到5月。

【助教】
每星期平均上導修課10至20小時,起薪近2萬,合約通常1年。博士後、研究助理收入差不多。
