A Visit to Aoshima, a Japanese 'Cat Island' - The Atlantic
Aoshima Island is one of about a dozen "cat islands" around Japan, small places where there are significantly more feline residents than people. In Aoshima more than a hundred cats prowl the island, curling up in abandoned houses or strutting about in the quiet fishing village. Cats outnumber humans six to one on the island. Recently becoming popular online, tiny Aoshima has seen a steep rise in tourist visits, overwhelming the handful of permanent residents.

When is a senior engineer not a senior engineer? | Dan Moore!
The technology industry has been overloading the term ‘senior engineer’. A senior engineer is not a senior engineer is not a senior engineer.

What “senior” really means depends on what your organization needs and how it operates. Much of my experience has been in small organizations, so this list may be tilted more toward jack of all trades, but I’ve seen some of these patterns at larger companies as well. Here are a number of attributes that all seem to get wrapped up in the word “senior”.

When to Break a CD Calculator - Is the improved interest worth an early withdrawal penalty?
When interest rates rise, you may find that an old certificate of deposit (CD) is no longer earning a competitive interest rate. You may be asking yourself if it's better to withdraw the money from the CD (break the CD) and deposit that into a new CD at a higher interest rate when there is an early withdrawal penalty for doing so. The issue that complicates this decision is the interest penalty that is charged when you break a CD. Due to this penalty, it may be better to just keep the current CD...

Ethics and paying rent
"But there’s more to this job than that. We work within a tight fragile ecosystem where our labor has repercussions. And you are lucky enough to be a designer at a time when design is taken seriously and when design has power. With that power comes responsibility. You are responsible for what you put into the world. And you are responsible for the effect your work has on the world. And right now designers (I define this term broadly, by the way. Perk up your ears developers and engineers.) are creating new inroads in all manner of things."

"Skeptics note that T-Mobile and AT&T offered similar arguments to the Obama administration when they wanted to merge. But when that deal was rejected, T-Mobile’s owners turned out to have been bluffing, and an independent T-Mobile actually unleashed a wave of competition and innovation around the industry."
