9/11 My Ground Zero visit after 15 years (with video walk)


15 Years has passed by since this horrifying day. Although I live in NYC and have watched One World Trade Center (AKA Freedom Tower) being built throughout the years, and even walked around it many times taking numerous pictures of the new building on my instagram (look below)…

I have never been to ground zero and the memorial. Why? It brings up sad memories for me whether it was friends I lost, to the thousands of lives lost, or even my own visit to the old towers almost a year before it happens.

It’s been 15 years and I have decided to go visit and pay respects in person instead of some online words.

I did broadcast my walk between the lights and Ground Zero, I’ll let the video speak to you instead. Here’s video link:

eBay to Shutdown Classifieds


Years ago eBay purchased global classifieds giant Kijiji. It did operate as Kijiji for a while until eBay finally (and slowly) changed it to
Today, we received emails from eBay Classifieds that it will be shutdown shortly, I will assume that it’s because of the low traffic they have had since they made the switch.
eBay also had purchased mobile local trading app Close5 about a year or so ago and it looks like it’s gaining momentum in the ranks of local trading apps market. eBay is pushing Close5 to be “The” replacement of eBay classifieds as you can read in the email screenshot above.

About Close5: We have personally used it last year before our big move and were successful selling a few items we needed to get rid of, however other more popular local selling apps like Wallapop and OfferUp gave us better results.
eBay Classifieds will stop accepting new postings by the end of August and will completely shutdown by September 30th 2016.
RIP eBay Classifieds.
