Duplicating Link and Guid
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting I don’t want to wade into an RSS syntax debate, but I came across a practicalexample of why to duplicate the Guid and Link elements in your RSS2.0 file. RogersCadenhead recommends that they be duplicated. It is one of two differencesbetween Rogers’ new proposed RSS feed for Movable Type users and BradChoate’s version (which I had used). The other difference is that Brad usesexcerpted entries for the Description tag, whereas Rogers advocates thefull entry. I agree with Rogers there, so that was the one alteration I made toBrad’s version when I implemented it. But the Guid / Link thing, I didn’t thinkit was a big deal to not have the Link element under each Item…solong as you had a Guid. What’s a Guid? The RSS2.0 Spec defines it as:“guid stands for globally unique identifier. It’s a string that uniquelyidentifies the item. When present, an aggregator may choose to use this stringto determine if an item is new.”Anyway in the comments to my last post, AdrianMcEwen pointed out that the Aggregator he uses does not display mypermalinks:“…at the moment people clicking through from your RSS feed (like I’vejust done) don’t actually get taken to the individual post, they get the main http://www.readwriteweb.com/(at least that’s what happens with nntp//rss)”I went and checked out nntp//rssand it turns out it’s a new form of RSS Aggregator I’d not come across before:“Bridging the worlds of NNTP clients and RSS feeds, nntp//rss is anapplication that will enable you to use your existing favorite NNTP newsreaderto read your information channels.”The demo uses version 0.4 of nntp//rss, which appears to pick up Guid OK.They didn’t have my RSS feed in the demo, but I checked the ScriptingNews feed and it was fine. However Adrian is using version 0.3, which didn’tdisplay permalinks for either me or Dave Winer. So maybe it was just a bug innntp//rss v 0.3. However it does go to show there’s no harm in duplicating Guidand Link! So I’ve gone and made that change to my RSS feed. richard macmanus Tags:#Blogging#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market

Ohio State footballs Curtis Grant blossoming in spring
Coming out of last season’s spring practices, junior linebacker Curtis Grant was tapped as the Ohio State football team’s starter at middle linebacker. Three disappointing games into the season, Grant was relegated to the bench and found himself in the shadows of junior Ryan Shazier and, later in the season, converted fullback-turned-linebacker Zach Boren. After not recording a tackle since Week 6 of the 2012 season – and completely missing out on the final two games – one of the big questions heading into this spring was if Grant was ready to make the jump back into the starting lineup. An eight-tackle performance for the Gray team in the Buckeyes’ annual Spring Game and a strong performance during spring practices might just have been the final push Grant needed to make his way back to the top of the depth chart. OSU defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell has watched Grant mature this spring and noticed the re-emergence of his passion for the game. “You saw him love to play the game, you saw his passion and energy,” Fickell said Thursday during interviews with the media. “For all the things that he needs to work on when he’s on the field and he’s playing like that with that passion and energy, those things shine above the things that he really needs to work on.” Co-defensive coordinator Everett Withers said he thought Grant’s effort has been one of the highlights for the defense this spring. “A guy that I’ve been really pleased with in the front seven is Curtis Grant,” Withers said Thursday. “Curtis, to me, had a productive spring, got better at a lot of things.” OSU’s defense – in particular its front seven – might be a little inexperienced after graduation took 10 starters, including stars from last season such as Boren, defensive end John Simon and defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who decided to skip his senior season and make himself eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft. “The reality is that when you have some young guys, there are some different things that you do. When you have some young guys in the spring, sometimes that is the most exciting time,” Fickell said. But even with the return of Shazier and the growth of sophomore defensive linemen Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington, the question of who would step up as OSU’s middle linebacker seemed to be one of the most important in the offseason. Withers said he wants to see Grant, who was not made available Thursday, grow as a player and a leader. “The knowledge of what’s expected at his position,” Withers said. “The ability to play fast at his position, the ability to be a leader at his position, I felt like those things were improved in Curtis’ corner this spring.” Fickell said the linebacking corps, while young, are ready to step up and take on their new responsibilities. “I think we’re still growing, we’re behind where we have been in the past, but that’s obvious just based on our numbers and the guys that we’ve got and the youth that we have,” Fickell said. “But I could not complain one bit about how they came out every single day, the things that we graded on a daily basis their fundamentals, their passion, their energy for the game, their work ethic. Just young, just behind in those senses but there are some guys that really are maturing and stepping up.” Now back in the starting lineup after a battle with sophomore linebacker Camren Williams in the spring, Grant will be looking to live up to his high ranking as a recruit coming out of high school. Considered the No. 2 overall football recruit according to Rivals.com in 2011, Grant’s performances have yet to live up to the lofty expectations set for him, only compiling a total of 10 tackles over his first two seasons. Grant, and his fellow defenders, will get their chance to prove themselves when the team’s season starts at Ohio Stadium on Aug. 31 against Buffalo.
Softball Ohio State picks up second conference win with 53 victory against

Credit: Gretchen Rudolph | For The LanternComing off its victory on Friday, the Ohio State softball team picked up its second win of the Big Ten season on Saturday. In the second game of a three-game series, the Buckeyes (17-9, 2-0 Big Ten) beat the Hoosiers (25-8, 0-2 Big Ten) 5-3. Ohio State began the game with a big inning, taking a 5-0 lead in the first inning. The Buckeyes got on board with an RBI double off the right field wall by senior shortstop Lilli Piper. Piper then scored on a wild pitch. “I think it’s important I come out and do what I can for my team,” Piper said. Two more runs scored when Ohio State sophomore first baseman reached on a throwing error, leading to freshman third baseman Ashley Prange and freshman right fielder Kaitlyn Coffman scoring, extending the lead to 4-0.Ohio State head coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly said that the Buckeyes had some good plays in the first inning, but primarily took advantage of the Hoosiers’ mistakes. Ohio State sophomore catcher Claire Nicholson added the fifth run of the first inning with a single to center.Senior outfielder Bri Betschel proved to be a major factor in the offensive success for the Buckeyes. She led the team with three hits in four at bats. Betschel said the momentum started in that first inning. “It was really awesome, coming out in the first inning and coming out strong as a team,” Betschel said. “It really set a tone for the game.”The Hoosiers got on board in the second inning as freshman outfielder Tete Hart came home after an error by Piper. Indiana tacked on two more runs on a single by sophomore shortstop Grayson Radcliffe in the third inning.Coming in to pitch in the third inning, Ohio State sophomore pitcher Lauren Rice did not allow an earned run in 4.1 innings of work, recording one strike out and one walk. “I am super proud of both of pitchers, just keeping us in the game and limiting them from having any big inning. They are able to get out when they need to get out, which was great” Schoenly said. Betschel said that this momentum could prove valuable heading into the final game of the series on Sunday. “It’s been successful for us so far,” Betschel said. “If we can come out like we did today, tomorrow will be a good day.”Ohio State will take on Indiana in the final game of a three-game set Sunday at 1 p.m.

I feel that ultimately it must be a consul general which means a professional diplomat will have to come here with some type of trade focus as well.”Mitchell candidly said it is all about selecting the right person for the job; someone who is not only politically neutral but ably qualified to be a diplomat. “So the first step is I want to identify an honorary consul, I’m taking a couple of names back to Nassau for them to be vetted and hopefully that will come shortly.”Minister Mitchell said it is an active assignment, but had no definitive date on when the office would be established. Currently Haiti and Jamaica have consulate offices set up in the TCI.#MagneticMediaNews#BahamasConsularofficeTCI#FredMitchellTCI#BahamasTCIrelations

San Diego International Airport to relocate cellphone waiting lot
SAN DIEGO ( KUSI) – The San Diego International Airport announced Friday that it will relocate its cell phone waiting lot next week to support ongoing airport renovations.The lot will be moved slightly northwest of its current location adjacent to Harbor Drive, putting it closer to both Terminal 1 and Liberator Way. The move is scheduled to take effect Monday.The cell phone lot allows motorists to park for free for up to an hour while they wait for their family, friends or loved ones to land at the airport. The lot’s new location will include 85 spaces, the same as the lot’s current location, according to the airport.The relocation is one of multiple parking changes the airport has made in recent months to accommodate changes and improvements. In December, the airport converted the Pacific Highway Economy parking lot into employee parking after construction of a stormwater filtration system forced the closure of the old employee parking lot at the runway’s south end.The airport can currently accommodate roughly 8,000 vehicles in its four parking lots in addition to the cell phone lot. Travelers can learn more about airport parking and make parking space reservations at san.org/parking.

Old New Leaders Clash Over New Direction
Julian Bond and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, among others, gathered for a discussion on racial profiling in America Feb. 18. (AFRO File Photos)On one side was Julian Bond, a long-time civil rights activist, founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and former chair of the NAACP.He was accompanied by Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), also a long-time civil rights activist and former SNCC member who was also a member of the famous Mississippi Freedom Summer and worked with slain civil rights icon Medgar Evers.On the other side were Howard University Student Association President Leighton Watson and Howard University Student Association Vice President Anthony Driver.Activists from two generations gathered for a discussion on racial profiling in America Feb. 18 at Howard University. The conversation quickly turned to how the generations can learn from and work with each other to address contemporary human rights issues.Norton said she was pleased to see the recent protests led by young people against the police-related deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Mo., and New York City. “I have been so elated by seeing young people get out in the streets, I don’t know what wto do,” she said.Still, she felt the marches and demonstrations , while important and necessary, lacked focus and a clear direction. “Back in the days of the Woolworth sit-ins, the demands were clear,” she said. No one needed to articulate demands.Today, the demands aren’t clear. “I haven’t heard any demands articulated. We hear hands up, don’t shoot and Black lives matter, but in fact, much of America may think that what people are really concerned about is B men getting shot in the streets. “That does occur considerably more often than White men, but that’s not what brought people of every color out. “It’s racial profiling that did it,” she said.In response, Watson said it would help his generation to have guidance from the older generation in how young people today should lead and organize. “I think that part of the disconnect is that you have young people who have the enthusiasm and the energy to be out in the streets,” Watson said. “There are ideas floating around, “but without communication with the people that have experience, have ideas, and know how the system works, that can tell us that these are viable ideas or this is what worked for us, it’s frustrating.”We “have all of these solutions and ideas, but it’s hard not knowing if they can even work,” he continued. “So, if the older generation is sitting on ideas that can change the circumstances, then I would think that there needs to be communication, so that the young people can implement these.”Bond said he thought it was important for the new generation to chart its own course without waiting to hear from their elders. “I think people in my generation are a little reluctant to say to these young people, ‘Why don’t you do this? How about you do that?’” Bond said. “I’m not willing to say that, because I think you know what the problems are, You know what the solutions are, and I’m sure we will be glad to help, but don’t depend on us to tell you what to do. Just go out and do it.”“After being in Ferguson and in Chicago, I feel like the disconnect is young people feeling as though the older generation comes in to (assume control of) their movements, or to show face and take credit for their movements,” Driver said.
Hitachi Maxell to join the wireless charging market
(PhysOrg.com) — Wireless charging, the last bastion of the truly lazy, has gotten a new competitor in the marketplace. Hitachi Maxell has joined the ranks of companies such as Energizer in the wireless charging arena. The Hitachi Maxell unit which is named Qi, you would go with a “chee” sound if you said the name aloud, and it comes in two different models. Harness power of the sun with solar gadgets © 2010 PhysOrg.com Citation: Hitachi Maxell to join the wireless charging market (2011, February 11) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-02-hitachi-maxell-wireless.html Explore further The first one is a larger charging station which allows you two slots for the charging of two separate devices at the same time. The second option is a smaller and cheaper unit that will charge only a single device. As with the Energizer model you cannot simply drop your phone as is onto the pad, each of the devices must be placed into its sleeve to get the charge. Unlike the Energizer model this one does not have USB ports for devices that lack sleeves. Both of the devices run on the same wireless standard, which has been adopted by 72 companies and every large-scale hardware maker, with the notable exception of Apple.That is not to say that you will not be able to charge your iPhone. The Qi setup does have a sleeve for iPhone 4 users that will allow them to charge without the cord. As a matter of fact, this device was designed with iPhone users in mind.Hitachi Maxell has not announced the price for either the double- or single- unit charger at this time. US customers do not have a release date, but the devices are expected to be out in Japan during the month of April. This document is subject to copyright.
