Nanny Job Posting Offers $128k Salary, Use of Family's Porsche

A British couple posted a job opening for a nanny with some unusual perks: meals prepared by a Michelin star chef, use of sports cars, and a $128,000 salary.

The posting on childcare.co.uk was posted by a couple with four children -- ages 2, 5, 7 and 15 -- who are seeking a full-time, live-in nanny to travel with the family as they split their time between residences in London, Barbados, Cape Town and Atlanta.

"We are looking for a highly qualified nanny who has a degree in child psychology, no children of their own and a minimum of 15 years of nannying experience. The candidate must be willing to work six days a week," the posting reads.

The ad has several stipulations for prospective nannies, including the need for a clean driver's license and either experience with self-defense or willingness to train at the family's expense.

"We do not mind what the nanny does with their free time, however binge drinking or drug taking will not be tolerated and will result in instant dismissal," the ad says.

The job also includes several benefits, however, including meals prepared by a Michelin star chef and use of the family's Porsche, Range Rover and Maserati.

"We are offering a salary of £100,000 [$128,000] per annum and require an NDA to be signed as well for privacy reasons, please no time wasters," the posting reads.

Women Have More Stamina Than Men

All our lives we’ve been told we’re physically less capable than men when really, women might have some science on their side! Women actually have more stamina than men, believe it or not. Sure, men are physically stronger overall, but there’s a secret weapon that women have up their sleeves, and it’s their rock solid stamina.

A study showed that in a simple workout, men are stronger and more powerful at first, but women can actually withstand the workout for longer. Men burn out too fast at the beginning, whereas women tend to conserve their energy. Not to keep a tally here, but it’s pretty cool that women have this ONE thing over men in terms of physicality.

Sure, men can beat us in a weight lifting contest, but who’s going to run a better marathon?

Looking For Love? These Strange Dating Apps Could Help

When your Bumble app tells you there are no new matches for you, don’t despair. Just find a new dating app, one that will match you to other singles who share a common interest - a unique common interest. Here are some unconventional dating apps that are for folks who are into really specific things. Some may call them weird, but we’re not here to judge.

  • JuggaLOVE - This is a dating app for Juggalos - who are fans of the band Insane Clown Posse. They claim to be the “fastest growing relationship site on the web,” but we’re not so sure. JuggaLOVE does have 2,277 members and only 684 are Juggalettes, so if you’re looking for a man, the odds are in your favor here.
  • ClownDating.com - If you always wanted to hookup with a clown, this is your chance. Clowns need lovin’ too!
  • GhostSingles.com - This dating app is for folks who want to date the undead. When you sign up for the site, you have options: you can choose that you’re a female ghost, looking for a male ghost between the ages of 18 and 180, who died either horribly, mysteriously, tragically, or suddenly. Hey, you never know where you’ll find love!
  • Sizzl - This app is a little more relatable for most people - it’s for people who like bacon! You can swipe right on fellow bacon lovers who like the same kind you do!
  • Hot Sauce Passions - The name says it all, this is a site for folks who love hot sauce.
  • Gluten Free Singles - Lots of people have dietary restrictions these days and it sure would make finding a restaurant a lot easier if neither of you eat bread.
  • FarmersOnly - If you’re looking for a man who works with his hands and wears flannel, this site could be for you.
  • FurryMate - If you don’t know, Furries are basically just folks who like to dress up like animals in furry costumes. There’s a lot more to it than that, but just know this is a dating site that helps furries find other furries who are “purrfect” for them.

Police Sent Street Guitarist Home for Poor 'Wonderwall' Performance

Police in Denmark sent a street performer home for his disruptive performance of "Wonderwall" by Oasis.

Danish police said the guitarist set up outside of a convenience store in the city of Aalborg and was playing "very badly and loudly."

"He certainly did not sound like Liam Gallagher," police said.

A patrol officer approached the guitarist to send him home to practice, and police later offered a word of advice.

"Just because you can play Wonderwall does not mean you should," police said.

Why Open Office Plans Aren’t Good For Business

The days of striving to get the corner office at work are gone, with more and more employers adopting open floor plans to encourage collaborations among workers. Unfortunately, it sounds like having everyone sitting in one open room together isn’t necessarily good for business.

A new Robert Half survey finds that 56% of human resources managers say that in recent years their companies have "gone open." And while 65% of workers say that having that open floor plan is good for employee collaboration, many think other office set ups work just as well. For example 69% of people say a combo of open and private spaces can still lead to employees working together while 68% say the same for semi-private cubicles, and 60% agree for private offices.

And employers really should take note of this. Because the survey finds that overall, those workers who are in offices with open floor plans andsemi-private cubicles report the lowest productivity levels. Those in private offices note having the highest productivity levels. And that’s not all, 31% of those in semi-private cubicles and 25% of those working in a open plan environment say they feel stressed because of their workspace, while 59% of those in private offices say they are relaxed in their space.
