Using Nikon D3200 DSLR movie mode 60fps/720p. Intepreted footage at 10fps mapped to 23.97fps. Pretty much get it right in camera first, no additional interpolation like using After Effects Timewarp or Twixtor. Or get high-speed camera to begin with. more »

Homeade Tuna Salad Sandwich
Ingredients purchased from Walmart
Subway Tuna Sandwich footlong as of 9/24/2016 is $6.95
Cheese Bread 4 rolls $3.00
Each roll is approx 6 inches x 2 equiv of footlong = $1.50
Helmann’s mayonnaise 15 oz jar $2.98
Great Value mild cheddar slices $2.22
Celery heart $2.18
Great Value Light Chunk Tuna 4-pack, 5 oz each, $2.96
Tomato x 3 = $1.88
So one tomato = approx $0.63
Red Onion $0.81
So approx 20 oz of tuna including all ingredients looks to serve about 5 six-inch equiv sandwiches.
$17.49 / 5 = $3.49 per six inch
$3.49 * 2 = $7 footlong WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY
Time wasted grocery shopping and prepping about 1 to 2 hours.
Subway sandwich is only 5 minute drive and would include olives, spinach, vinegrette, pickled peppers, provolone and american cheese, 5 herb toasted bun, and can be made in less than 15 minutes
However, making it yourself allows you to add as much tuna per sandwich as want. In this case, I put almost same amount that would go into a Subway footlong into a 6-inch cheese bread roll. So maybe there’s more value in that.
Then again, as for time management, now I have enough pre-made tuna salad I can eat for next few days without having to drive to Subway. It evens out time and money.

How To Maximize Your Fiverr Revenue (As a Seller)
By Chongchen Saelee
1. Book as many Gigs as you can in advance. But make sure you have sufficient time to deliver quality work in a reasonable amount of time. So you have to set the delivery times on your Packages and any custom orders accordingly.
2. Level Up. You need to Level Up so you can charge more for each Gig. Fiverr takes a good 20% from whatever revenue you bring in, so you’ll need to have ability to charge more if you want certain amount of income. And the only way to charge more is to level up. That means delivering the best quality product you can, delivering on time, and being respectful and courteous like a professional.
3. Keep repeat customers coming back. Your returning customers may pay you more or tip you and you should always welcome their patronage. So treat them right.
4. Know when to pick your fights. For the most part, you should be able to tell which buyers are spam, trolls or scammers. Fiverr usually detects spam quickly and removes those users. But in the case some buyer makes it through undetected, you need to know when to keep interacting with that person (or bot) and when to let the negotiations fall through. You don’t want to put all that work in only to have the buyer not pay you in the end and the best way is to detect scammy behavior beforehand. As some true Fiverr professionals have suggested, you can let some potentially bad Gigs drop because better ones will come later (and hopefully pay more).
5. Respond to Buyer Requests. You get about 10 responses to Buyer Requests every day. So make sure you use them all. You have to know how to use all Fiverr resources to your advantage.
