make a baby in this hotel today and win $99,300

Israel is promoting population this leap year. The term means pregnant year in Hebrew, and so a hotel in Jerusalem decided to offer a package like none other. Hotel Yehuda in the city is offering couples who conceive a child in one of their rooms today with a special hotel package worth up to $99,300. If you think this news sounds like a joke, then be rest assured that it isn’t because the company has claimed that 50% of the rooms are booked since announcing the campaign.

February 29 is the latest fad of lucrative days of the year. Travel sites are giving special offers to commemorate the leap year. Expedia is giving a 20% discount on hotel deals when booked through its mobile app, Travelocity was offering 30% on hotel reservations and CheapOair was giving 30% off on air tickets – both made before February 29. Such a bizarre world.

Snapchat Launches On-Demand Geofilters for Any Occasion

Since its inception, Snapchat has been very keen about getting the community involved. From features like Discover, which allows users to consume news from the most pertinent media channels around the world, to publicly nurturing brand advocates like DJ Khaled, the Snapchat MO is all about inclusion. The social media platform’s latest feature bolsters this intent by letting users create and publish their own Geofilters. Designs can be conceived through any image editor and, once complete, users will cordon off an area in which they’d like their filter to appear by drawing a geofence.

On-Demand Geofilters are applicable for an hour or up to thirty days, with rates starting at $5 USD depending on duration and scope.



Based out of San Francisco, BoomCase’s founding principles were to make a set of speakers that sounded great and didn’t need to have its batteries replaced constantly. In the 6 years that this company has been around, they’ve followed through with that promise with a wide array of handmade boomboxes – and the uniquely designed Signal Corps Vintage US Army version is no exception.

The setup comes with a 50 watt amp, two full range 4-inch speakers, and vintage dome tweeters in a steel case that resembles an ammo box. Built in Sacramento, California, this sucker is built to run for up to 18 hours without needing to be recharged. When you buy one of these, it comes complete with a battery charger and aux cable. You can get this boombox with a shoulder strap for an extra $40, and Bluetooth connectivity for an extra $45, while the whole package goes for $575.
