You can transform your used items into money with just a few words, pictures, and clicks of your mouse. Selling is all about making connections, and by using online selling sites like eBay, you can make more connections from the comfort of your own home than you could in person. When you sell stuff online you aren’t limited by time or distance; you can put your things up for sale on your schedule and let buyers bid on theirs. All you need is an Internet connection and you’re instantly in touch with a whole world of people who are actively looking for what you’re selling. With a yard sale you might be lucky to get a few dozen people; when you sell on eBay you can reach over a hundred million. To succeed at selling, it takes a little more than just a quick description and post. You need to capture your audience’s attention, and that takes communication. Start with the description; it’s a great way to clarify things like size and technical specifications. Don’t forget the pictures; they are key for how to sell online. Good pictures show potential buyers exactly what you have to offer, not the general details but the specifics of the one you’re selling. Photographs bring your item’s history to life and let bidders see exactly what you’re selling. This works whether you are selling clothes or electronics because people want to see what they’re getting. Let them see the shoes, the tablet, or the sparkle in that ring. Your words may provide the details, but your choice of pictures is the tool you can use to capture their attention. Happy Selling. Schwartz, F. (2004).

The recently revitalized New Orleans Warehouse District is home to many of the city’s best galleries, museums, and restaurants. The Contemporary Arts Center opened in the neighborhood in 1976. In 1984, the World’s Fair in New Orleans, which took place largely in the Warehouse District, further helped to cement the area’s reputation as a cultural center.

Many materials commonly used in the art classroom pose potential health risks to both teachers and students, the danger varying from slight to great. Ingestion, inhalation, and absorption are the three methods by which toxic materials enter the body. Precautionary and preventative measures will reduce the health risks posed by various art materials. Acrylic paints work great on almost all surfaces. They are bright, opaque and the good quality ones are even water and light resistant. Even if you are a beginner, choose your brands and colors wisely because that does make a lot of difference. You could start with Pebeo studio acrylics or Camel artists acrylics ( easily available ) they are quite pocket-friendly and have a nice smooth texture. Some other brands that I use and really like are Daler-Rowney, Winsor and Newton and Golden. These are available on Amazon and certain other offline stores that stock professional art supplies. In neuromuscular diseases affecting the ability to initiate and control movement, external rhythm seems to supply the timing information that makes movement possible. For Sam, even singing the song to himself provided the required neurologic beneﬁt, the external cue. Writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks, M.D., author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, eloquently describes a similar response to music in one of his post-encephalitic patients, who had great difﬁculty walking alone but walked perfectly if someone walked with her—or could time her steps to music. She said: Whether it is others, in their own natural movement, or the movement of music itself, the feeling of movement, of living movement, is communicated to me. And not just movement, but existence itself.” Sacks studied this phenomenon in the EEGs of some of these patients when they merely imagined a speciﬁc piece of music. Although their regular EEGs were very abnormal—the brain was slow on one side while convulsive on the other, for example— when they played the piano or simply imagined a piece of music, their EEGs became more normal.
