DREAM ESCAPE\nSleeping with sharks\n\nIt’s unusual to find a hotel where you are told “to keep your heads and feet into [sic] the bedroom at all times.” But that is one of the house rules for an unusual room recently listed on Airbnb, reports Business Insider UK.\n\n\n\nThis room happens to be inside the shark tank at the Aquarium de Paris, which contains 35 sharks. Airbnb recently ran a contest where three people won a free night’s stay there with a guest.\n\n\n\nParticipants were asked to explain (in 50 to 550 words) why they deserved to sleep beside sharks. They also had to be medically fit and able to climb easily in and out of the bedroom.\nHIGHER EDUCATION\n\n\nA university a week\n \n\nChina has been opening the equivalent of almost one university every week, reports BBC News. This is emblematic of a “silent revolution that is causing a huge shift in the composition of the world’s population of graduates.” India is also part of that revolution.\n\nFor many years, the US has had the highest percentage of university students in the world. Among those aged 55 to 64, nearly a third of graduates in advanced economies are US citizens.\n\nBut in younger age groups, China is overtaking not only the US, but also the combined university systems of EU countries.\n\nThe change is not just quantitative. Chinese and Indian students also favour the disciplines that promote technological change: mathematics, science, computing and engineering. In 2013, 40% of Chinese graduates came from these disciplines — double the US percentage.\nSCAMS\n\n\nDriving to infraction\n \n\nIt’s getting even harder to tell when you’re being scammed through email. Recently, at least three US residents received messages notifying them of speeding infractions, reports The Fiscal Times. The “tickets” were in fact malware that, once opened, loaded malicious code onto their computers.\n\nThe most troubling aspect of the scams is that the emails contained accurate information, including the drivers’ actual speeds. Those who were targeted had really been speeding at the place and time indicated in the emails. Police suspect that the scammers got the data through a traffic app that tracks phone GPS data.\nCITIES\n\n\nMoscow, USA \n\nHow many Moscows does Russia have? Good question. But there are at least 20 in the US, according to PRI News.\n\nOlder residents of Moscow, Tenn., can’t really say how their village got its name. One thought it might have to do with the moss where the cows went to graze: moss cow. Another mused about ownership: ma’s cow.\n\nResidents of Hog’s Hollow, Idaho, didn’t like that name; they wanted a more prestigious one. Ergo: Moscow. But Lester, NY, which was once called Moscow, cast that name aside for political reasons. Only one Moscow, in Pennsylvania, allegedly got its name from Russians.
