The picture in the second post looks like a pan. The background looks like it is blurred horizontally. You can do that by having lets say 1/40 shutter speed. Now follow the person on a bike, car. etc...and click. If focus was right the person will be in focus and background will be blurred horizontally.

If you just want background out of focus (bokeh) you can do it two ways. Long zoom, or large aperture 1.4, 1.8, 2.8 etc.

Here is a picture.
