Washing dishes for the royal family is not easy

the British royal family website recently put out a job advertisement to recruit a dishwasher, and the royal family’s requirements for the dishwasher are not low. According to reports, the post of “Royal Dishwasher” is mainly responsible for maintaining the hygiene of the restaurant. In addition, candidates “must be willing to travel with members of the royal family”, leave London to work for three months a year, and “be prepared to be assigned to other royal residences and to work on weekends”. However, the “Royal Dishwasher” is well paid, working 40 hours a week and earning £14,200 a year, which is paid from royal funds.   After
two months of severe food shortages, the New Guinean authorities had to resort to the odd strategy of letting prisoners go out on their own to forage.   The incident took place at Polan Prison in Papua New Guinea’s East Sepik province, which currently holds 290 men, most of whom are in custody awaiting trial in court.   Prison managers said in an interview that the major shortfall this time around was due to delays in the release of government funds. Bolan Prison once received $18,000 a month from Correctional Services headquarters to feed its inmates. However, starting in April this year, that funding has been cut by more than half to just $7,000, which is simply not enough to cover everyone’s expenses. So much so that officers and their families began to join the camp to provide food for prisoners.   In recent days, the situation has become more and more serious, and it has become difficult to maintain. In desperation, 35 prisoners have been released outside the prison to find food on their own. Of all the prisoners released, only one teenager reportedly did not return.   Authorities later said that the prison’s food shortage was under control and that meals had been paid. The Bolan Prison also confirmed that it received the remaining money for April, but the food payment for May has not yet been implemented.   Donate to the playground by car In the city of Helmond   in the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant, there is a notorious highway. The speeding situation here is so bad that last year’s figures showed that more than 64 per cent of vehicles passed the speed limit.

  Obviously, fines are no longer enough to stop people from chasing speed. The local government decided to go the opposite way and remediate speeding vehicles through positive incentives rather than punishment.
  In early May, a “speed cash box” was installed on this section of the road. Each vehicle that obeyed the speed limit could accumulate 0.1 euros in the cash box, and each vehicle was capped at half euro per day. The money will be contributed to the infrastructure construction of the community.
  Thomassen, spokesman for the province of Brabant Norte, said the Speedbox had already reached the set fundraising target of 500 euros and could upgrade local sports venues before the end of the three-week trial period.
  Thomassen said the box was designed by the provincial traffic safety team. “Most of these drivers are local drivers who take pride in knowing that they are contributing to the region.”
  Human Chips
  Some of the worst tech nightmares are becoming a reality.
  More than 3,000 people in Sweden have had a microchip inserted under their skin over the past three years, according to AFP. The rice-sized chip can replace credit cards, ID cards, and even train tickets.
  First launched in 2015, the technology was initially kept secret but quickly became popular with Swedish residents keen to try new things and stride towards a transparent society.
  Employees at some biotech companies have volunteered to spread the word about this new technology, which has now replaced many of the daily necessities in their lives.
  Celsing, 28, was one of those 3,000 people. She described to the media that the installation process was very simple, similar to a puncture. The chip was implanted into the back of the palm through a syringe, and she only felt a slight tingling. The chip has now become her e-wallet, even replacing a gym card. The Swedish National Railways also launched the chip train ticket service. Within a year, they acquired more than 130 microchip service users.
  So-called “biohacking” is on the rise as more and more people rely on wearable technology and connected devices. Microbiologist Libberton said that because implant collection and data are currently too limited, there is no need to worry about hacking or surveillance, but the body’s immune system may have an infectious response to foreign objects.
