An homage to the occasionally moments-too-late New York subway commuter by Jessica Leibowitz. To wit:

There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.

Limerick Leader reports:

Controversy continues over the Government’s JobBridge scheme, as a Subway outlet in Limerick city has advertised two positions seeking “sandwich artists”.

The O’Connell Street outlet is seeking two people to master the ‘art’ of sandwich making for 30 hours a week. Those hired will received an extra €50 per week under the scheme, on top of their existing social welfare payment.

The position is for nine months, and the advert highlights that a mentor will be assigned to the successful applicant.

Xierqi station on Beijing Subway’s Line 13 last Thursday morning at around 7:30.

According to Antony Tao of Beijing Cream, Xierqi is:

…a transfer station and one of the cleaner, better-looking ones in the system. It has, like other stations in Beijing’s vast underground transportation network, built-in artificial bottlenecks intended to relieve congestion in the form of gates and narrow staircases. On some occasions, however, those fail.
