A review on Timbu

Image
Timbu ( timbu.com ) a website that helps travellers or citizens book hotels online, has an interesting slogan which says.

“Travel anywhere. Go where nobody is going"
The website has informations on hotel accommodations across 6 continents, thats pretty amazing. The continents which include;


Asia
Europe
Africa
Australia
North America
South America


The Image above shows the “sort by” filter that helps their users sort the hotel they are looking for. But there is something timbu.com did wrong, I tried searching for a place in Amsterdam today, and the “sort by" didn’t work. I couldn’t filter my search into the ones I would like.

Tiwa savage doesn't support Modern day Feminism

Image
In a recent interview with Beat 99.9 FM she outlined ways by which women could survive in the industry without having a low self esteem“It’s real. I’m not going to say I’m completely comfortable with it but it is what it is. .
You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do. We all celebrate people like Oprah and Mo Abudu and we don’t actually realise what they have to do to get to that point. .
They probably had to do 20 times than their male counterparts. Once you get there, you don’t complain about how you get there. So, whatever it is you have to do as a female, you just have to get it done. .I know I’ll (ruffle) a few feathers but I also don’t think men and women are equal, I don’t think that’s how God created us that way… especially in the household anyway. .So I think as females when we realise that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realise that…

"Fayose is on his own" - Senator Makarfi

Image
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, while addressing journalists in Kaduna has said that the present campaign mounted by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State to vie for the 2019 Presidency is contrary to the decision of the party’s convention that zoned presidency to the North.
He said:
“He (Fayose) is on his own. What he is doing is not in compliance with the position of the party. The party’s position has not changed.
“The convention has zoned the presidency to the North and the chairmanship of the party to the South.”
Makarfi also dismissed speculation that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar may be given an automatic ticket to contest the same position on the platform of the PDP if he finally decides to join the party before the 2019 general election.
