What is the difference between postmodernism and modernism ideology?

Q. That related to art reproduction, art consumption, and art appreciation.

A. Postmodernism and modernism apply to much more than ART. They actually apply to everything. These terms are descriptive of a "World View" or mood of the mind. They both deal with the concept of Truth. They assert that Truth exists and that is knowable, however is arrived at by different means.

Modernism- Truth exists and is absolute. Truth is knowable through Facts, Science. What I can see taste or touch. "I can arrive at the knowledge of truth by experimentation"

Postmodernism- Truth exists and is NEVER absolute. All truth is relative. I arrive at the knowledge of truth by personal feelings and the situation at hand. Example: "A cop give a postmodernist a ticket for traveling 85 miles an hour in a 45 miles an hour zone. The post modernist will sincerely feel he did nothing wrong because he felt like he wasn't speeding."

The postmodern concept of truth "All truth is relative" in itself defeats its self. So apply that to Art reproduction by creating a self defeating art form

What is the best topic for a website?
Q. I'm creating a website which can make money when I advertise in google. What is the best topic to choose that lots of people would like to click on it?

A. The best topic will be one where you can create unique and compelling content on a regular basis.

If you want to earn via advertising, here are guidelines on how to select the best topic

1. Create a website on a topic where advertisers are plentiful and their bidding on ad systems such as Google Adwords or Yahoo Search Marketing.

Instead of writing about your favorite squirrel (where hardly no advertisers are bidding for the space), write about the latest tech gadgets.

2. Write about a topic you are passionate about.

Instead of writing about mesothelioma which is supposedly high paying but you know absolutely nothing about (and hence can only copy other site's content and can make no more than 10 pages), write about what you know best. Or if you insist in writing about a topic you know nothing about, seek the help of writers or attract a community that wants to talk about the topic so you don't have to worry about writing the content.

3. Think of a topic that attracts users looking for ways to spend money.

A travel site works well because you will be attracting users who are looking to visit the place -- and hence spend money on hotels, travel tours, airline tickets, travel accessories and luggages. A camera or electronics review site is also great because you are attracting visitors are looking to buy cameras or other electronics equipment. The more the visitor is inclined to spend money, the more the advertisers are willing to spend to reach them

What is the advantage of going through a travel agent when I can research vacations on my own?
Q. Do travel agents get you a better rate? Can they get perks that you would not be able to get on your own? Can they negotiate better deals?

Thanks!

A. I have been in the Travel Business for 34 years. I think that a good travel Agent (and they are not all good ones!) can save you time and money. Their knowledge is invaluable and for the most part it is free if you are booking other than just an airline ticket.

A good Travel Agent knows where the "deals" can be found. They do nothing but book travel and research destinations, hotels, tour operators and cruise lines all day long. Some even know about Consolidators or they might belong to Consortium's that can get you some really great "deals". They can find the right price and the right destination for you.

They work for you. They can qualify you and find the best place and the best price for you. Most are bonded so your hard earned vacation dollar is protected should they go out of business overnight and leave you hanging.

Most importantly, they can do it all. You could spend hours researching a trip but they can do it all in minutes. They should be unbiased, looking out for you, not pushing their airline of their hotel.

Then they are there should anything go wrong to try and assist you in refunds, or handle complaints. A lot of Travel Agencies have clout and their suppliers want their continued business. You represent one trip, they represent an unknown amount. You are one client, they are again, untold numbers of clients.

Travel Agents can advise you as to climate, currency, cultures and customs. They can also advise you as to vaccinations,health requirement, documents required (i.e. Visas etc.)

Sure you can research it on your own. Doing your homework is your part of a great vacation. We call it know before you go.

So yes, Travel Agents can get you a better rate. Let's say you get onto Southwest's website wanting to book a flight. A Travel Agent has every airline's flights and prices in front of them, not just one. He or she can find not only the best price, but the best schedule to suit you, their customer.

Can they get you perks? Sure can. Many are members of Consortium's that offer special rates and special features. For instance, on a cruise and agent might be able to get you shipboard credit or upgrades to a better Stateroom at no cost to you.

Can they negotiate better deals, that is what they do. They can book one person or one thousand people. Try that on your home computer.

A great Travel Agent is someone that truly wants to make your dream a reality. Personalized attention! Satisfaction and I bet your computer will not send you a bottle of wine on your cruise either! LOL
