Booking hotels on-line is easy and difficult

Not long time ago, I didn't even know you can book hotels on-line. But recently I got aware of it and realized that booking hotel or hostel is sometimes quite handy.

Booking hotel on-line systems

Many travelers appreciate the convenience of booking their hotel room on-line, and paying on-line for it using e.g. credit cards. There is vast amount of services like this. Some, like Booking.com, Hotels.com or Quikbook.com offer large amount (thousands)
of hotels in different areas all around the world.

Others, like Splendia.com or ArtOfTravel.eu focus on smaller number of hotels,
which are selective, hand-picked, sometimes exclusive. Most of these services allow the customer to see when the room will be free, what would be the price and some offer extra information about the hotel and travel destination. That is something I like about Art Of Travel - they keep their site clean, yet they add new info. Even if you don't use them to buy a room, you can find useful information for your trip.

Disclaimer: I realize this looks like an PR article. I still hope you might find it useful.


Has Hillary still a chance to win? And who cares about Pensylvania once the primaries there are over?

OK, this shows how Hilary thinks about voters. "Come on, are we going to count that state? If we were Republicans, I'd have already won..."

Luckily here's my favorite Brit to show us the paradox of primaries in Pennsylvania: one day everyone cares about the state, the other day the state is forgotten....


US Military biasing news media

I guess it shouldn't have surprised me, but somehow I thought they wouldn't go for it so blatantly. Of course military wants to have some influence on what is reported, but the Iraq war shows us the extremes. Message Force Multipliers, that is rich.


Bowling for Pensylvania

In presidential race, we often lose perspective on importance. But there are some things that are beyond any doubts the core essence of the true politician: sport skills. So media are doing fair job informing us about possible flaws in our potential future leaders' abilities to rule the country.

Seriously, why does that even matter? Perhaps The Daily Show has the answer - Presidents first pitch.

Well, Jon Stewart himself tried it once as well, so he probably isn't all that independent to report on importance of sport exhibition.

Here is another excellent bowling video.
