Apple Pushing Right Buttons

Summer vacations are awesome, right? Returning from a break isn’t that much fun anymore. Before diving back into your emails and projects, let me get you an idea of how things were while you were gone. After years of shaking out who is who, Google Pay and Samsung Pay are pretty much the only Android players left in the mobile wallet transaction market in the United States — both supporting a pretty big variety of mobile phone brands. The bad news, though, is that they are both getting slaughtered by Apple Pay. A study by Pulse, an electronic funds transfer company, has been published, stated that payments using Apple Pay account for the staggering 92% of all mobile wallet payments The post Apple Pushing Right Buttons appeared first on Prague Monitor / Czech News in English.

Military transport plane to fly the President

The CASA C-295 military aircraft is a transport plane capable of transporting 71 soldiers or three ‘light’ land vehicles. On Tuesday 31st of August, the Czech President Miloš Zeman had used this plane to transport himself to Brno, just a little over 200km away. Many are criticizing the use of such heavy equipment with high environmental impact for the transport of just a few people. Nevertheless, the spokesperson of the President’s office at the Prague castle, Jiří Ovčáček, argues that the plane with a range of 4,300km was perfect for the short trip. The President used it to arrive at the ceremony which kicks off the school year, which will take place at the Elementary school on Merhautova street in The post Military transport plane to fly the President appeared first on Prague Monitor / Czech News in English.

The heating season is starting

According to a Decree of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the heating season should take place between September 1st and May 31st, but heating providers are only required to start servicing their customers once the daily average temperature falls under 13 °C for two consecutive days. It seems that this could occur very early this year. Last year, the heating companies only started providing warmth to their customers at the end of September, but due to this year’s cold August, many customers are already asking when will the extra heat come to their houses. Pensioners and families with small children are in the greatest need of heating, as their bodies are worse at keeping the right temperature, thus they The post The heating season is starting appeared first on Prague Monitor / Czech News in English.

Cities have lost a tool that made people move

There is a vicious circle connected to the housing of socially weak people in the Czech Republic. They are often offered housing in older buildings with less amenities, which leads to a lower standard of living. While a lower level of luxury for people that are less well-off is expected, these conditions are often very drastic, as molds often grow on their walls and clean water can be an issue. Nevertheless, many of those living in such building often end up paying extortionate prices, which seldom let them get back up on their feet. The owners of these buildings know how much money these people are getting from the government, and they rob them of that money, without even using The post Cities have lost a tool that made people move appeared first on Prague Monitor / Czech News in English.
