    Manly Sport

    Of course, football is a courageous sport it cannot be otherwise. I play it too. To date, I can not stand so many loads on my legs, so I have to wear compression socks for edema . They help my legs not to be so tired. For me, it has become a real boon. I advise you to try if you have a heavy load on your legs.

    well i got it updated on my and on my Mac Pro, and my Macbook Pro and on a friends laptop, and another friends new laptop. it went real quick for the newest laptop with the I7 and SSD, the other laptop i had to try at least 3 times, since it is an older laptop. my Mac Pro went quick on the download and install. my Macbook Pro went daily good too, but did take a while to download. yeah i am still playing with multi booting on the big MP which i now have 2 quad core Xeons in it. i think i will have to download the update and burn it to a DVD for my mom since she is only on a 1.5 mbps dsl. and AT&T is really crappy in the quad cities.

  20. Getting started as a new graphic artist can be tough. Where do you get started, how can you learn more, and where can you get paid are questions that you'll often ask yourself. Following are 5 great online resources to help the new graphic artist get started and on their way in their online graphic arts business . Online Resource #1: Freelance Switch In my opinion Freelanceswitch is the first online resource any new graphic artist should check out. Freelance Switch is a great resource for new graphic artists to quickly gain years of experience by leveraging the wisdom of seasoned graphic artists. Freelance Switch provides online tutorials, legal advice, tools, written homework and a great forum to use as a resource to learn new things by networking with other graphic artists. Oops, I almost forgot to mention that Freelance Switch is also a great online resource for finding freelance design clients. What more can you ask for in one online resource? Online Resource #2: DeviantArt After graduating from college, I soon learned that the portfolio weighed more than my college degree in the graphic design industry. After learning this new and troubling fact of the graphic design industry, I was then faced with a new challenge; how can I display my portfolio online? DeviantArt is the perfect online resource for displaying all of your new and old freelance graphic artwork. Deviant Art provides a great resource for new freelance graphic artists to establish a professional online portfolio, network with other graphic artists, and find artistic inspiration. Online Resource #3: ColourLovers With billions of color possibilities, it's a troubling task for new freelance graphic artists to decide on the right color combination for their graphic assignments. A freelance graphic artist can waste valuable time just sitting around thinking and tweaking different colors around to find the right pick - if only there were an online resource that could help these new artists with this task. ColourLovers is great resource for freelance graphic artists that are new to the industry. Colour Lovers provides professional color palettes, colors, patterns, trends, and examples that were made by fellow freelance graphic artists. Colour Lovers also provides a forum and blog as an added resource for new freelance artists to learn new color tips and trends online. Online Resource #4 and 5: ODesk and Craigslist OK, so far we've covered online resources that teach new freelance artists the basics (and not so basic) of the graphic design industry, how and where to post your online portfolio, and where to find inspiration, but there's one thing that's missing... where the heck can a new freelance graphic artist get paid online? ODesk and Craigslist are two great online resources for new freelance artists (with little experience) to find paying graphic design clients. ODesk is an online directory where prospective clients post needed graphic (and other) assignments and ODesk charges a small fee for brokering the deal. Craigslist lists jobs for free (in the creative gigs section), but you'll have to watch out for scammers because there isn't much moderation for that kind of thing.
  21. When it comes to writing, there are countless components—and, of course, they’re all important. You’ve got the basics, like including a call to action, and some of the intricacies, such as testing to determine the perfect format that resonates best with your audience. But few components have more visibility and influence than your headline. Think of your headline as a two-second advertisement; it has to inform and hook someone to read the rest of your content. No small feat. According to Daren, one of the biggest reasons why a company's sales copy is not selling anything is because of bad headlines. So how do you write a headline that attracts readers—and gets them past your intro paragraph? Here are five surefire tips to help new Web marketers rise to the challenge. Tip 1: Make Your Headline a “How To” So much of what people search for online falls into the “how to” category. In the business world, you’ll find how to’s for using various technologies, tracking metrics, etc. Personally, it might be a how-to DIY piece or child-rearing advice. By making your article a how to, you automatically gain appeal with a large group of potential readers. It sounds a bit oversimplified, but I wouldn’t be entirely surprised to see “How to pour plain water into your glass in 49 ways” go viral one day. Somehow, step-by-step instructions—and clear direction—just make nearly any topic more appealing and digestible. Perfect example: You’re now reading the body of the article. Would you still have read this far had the title been “Headline writing tips for new marketers?” Maybe—but it likely wouldn’t have had quite the same appeal. Tip 2: Focus Your Headline on Current Content Relevancy will always be important in drawing interest—and what’s more relevant than your topic tied to a trending topic? For example, you’re writing a piece about document security. What’s more appealing: a headline that is straight to the topic (ie; “Keep your documents safer”) or one that ties to a current event (ie; 3 things we learned about document safety from Hilary Clinton)? Social media metrics have proven time and time again that trending content simply gets a higher CTR because of a tie to current topics; those are the topics people are currently concerned with. The same goes to headlines; by tying your headline to a trending topic, you automatically increase your odds of being read. Of course, currency and timeliness never hurt for SEO purposes, either—call it a double win. Need some help finding what’s trending? Use Google Trends to get an idea of where to start. Tip 3: Instantly, Immediately, Now! We are a society that thrives on instant gratification—and even then, we typically want things yesterday. If I’m buying something, I want it in-hand now—it’s one of the reasons that brick and mortar stores are still doing well, despite the frequent savings available via online retailers. Point being, the more instantaneously you can deliver to your prospects, the more you’ll sell (and the more you make them wait, the less you’ll sell). So the tip to make your headline a bigger success? Align your headlines with your product delivery cycle. Sure, you can tease something upcoming, but unless there’s proximity, you’re likely not going to get too much traction. For example, “New X comes to market Tuesday” or “Countdown to Product X’s Release Begins” or “Presale for X Starts Today” not only deliver intrigue, but let your prospects know what to expect and when. By letting them know what’s coming, customers are able to better prepare or, more importantly, take action. Tip 4: LOL, OMG. WTF?! #Fail BuzzFeed is notorious with today’s online entertainment—and thanks to its popularity, the list mogul has been able to provide some insight into what makes some of its content so successful. The secret is that the majority of its content fits into seven categories: LOL (humorous content) Win (useful content) OMG (shocking content) Cute (well... cute content – think kittens and baby animals) Trashy (ridiculous failure of others) Fail (something that everyone shared frustrations of) WTF (strange, bizarre content) So what does this mean for your headlines? Simply consider which of the above seven success-proven categories your content would fit into – then write the headline to fit. This isn’t to say that it needs to have a “shock and awe” factor by any means, but writing to the seven categories does help to give interest and audience appeal. Take, for example, this LOL: “18 Unmissable Throwback Songs You Hear at Every Latino Party," it’s got mass appeal and it’s funny because it’s half-way true. No idea why it’s so appealing but it is. Or “Here’s How to Free Up Space in Your iCloud," it’s a “Win” that also makes use of Tip #1. Get more lessons from Buzzfeed’s success. Tip 5: Ride on the Famous You know why the famous stay in the headlines? Because they have proven themselves. Ok, maybe not in the case of the Kardashians (although I suppose you could call them experts in their own rights if bad decisions and viral videos are the topic at hand), but think of the Bernie Madoffs, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerbergs of the world. One way to get more reads? Write those leaders into your headlines in relevant ways. For example, “8 Ways to Think Like Warren Buffett” or “Make Your New Website a Success: 3 Things we Learned From Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook” tie content to a relevant industry leader in a way that is not misleading. Being upfront is important for multiple reasons—legality, for one, but also it is important to building the rapport with your audience that you need to gain loyalty. Wrapping Up There are plenty of ways to drive more success through your headlines, but the above five are sure to draw intrigue, make your headlines more noteworthy, and—importantly, draw readers in (and keep them reading beyond your first paragraph). Paragraphs must by engaging too, so experience from college education essay can play a crucial part in your career. Give them a try and watch your stats rise.

    How to share iTunes purchases to others

    I'm not sure whether you want to share iTune M4P audio files with your others? If yes, you need to download iTunes purchase audios to your computer and convert iTunes music to MP3 with Apple Music Converter for Mac. Then you can share these files with your friends for offline playback on any device.
