How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog

How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Robin Good: For content curators who own or manage a WordPress-based website here is a great tutorial on how RSS feeds can be integrated and published directly (parsed) on any given web page. 

 

Authored by Vladislav Davidzon this excellent tutorial requires some basic technical knowledge on how to operate WordPress variables and functions and it provides precise guidance on how to:

 

- Utilize the Built-in Parsing Function to Pull RSS Feeds in and Turn their XML code into Content

 

- Divide Content into the Right Number of Columns for your Website’s Design

 

- Create a Friendly Display of RSS Content Using WordPress Loop Variables

 

From the tutorial: "Included only since version 2.7 of the WordPress software, the ability to parse RSS feeds as content and include that information into a template file is relatively new and its parameters are largely unknown even among the more advanced members of the WordPress development community at large.

 

Luckily, these parameters are easy to learn and customize, and they can turn a simple RSS feed into a great source of extra content and discussion on already-busy WordPress blogs.

 

Not only can RSS feeds be parsed by WordPress, but they can also be split up into columns and tabs.

 

This allows for feeds to actually be used as the primary source of content on some WordPress blogs, especially those that consider themselves a mere aggregator of outside content rather than a producer of unique news, reviews, or commentary on any topic."

 

 

Very useful. 9/10

“Kolumnissaan Matti Apunen esitti (HS 27. 1.), että koulut voidaan jakaa hyviin ja huonoihin opettajien mukaan ja että vanhempien tulisi saada valita ne koulut, joissa he voivat taata lapsilleen hyvät opettajat.”

"Oman lottokupongin lisäksi täytettävä myös kimppalotto" – pienet lukiot etsivät kumppaneita selvitäkseen lukiouudistuksesta

"Oman lottokupongin lisäksi täytettävä myös kimppalotto" – pienet lukiot etsivät kumppaneita selvitäkseen lukiouudistuksesta | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Parin vuoden päästä voimaan tuleva lukiouudistus on saanut monet pienet lukiot etsimään uusia keinoja opetuksen järjestämiseen. Tulevaisuudessa lukio-opetuksen järjestämisvastuu voi siirtyä yhä enemmän suurille kunnille tai koulutuskuntayhtymille.

Which Adapter Do I Need to Mirror My iPad?

You can use an adapter and a cable to mirror exactly what's on your iPad's
display onto a projector or television screen. When picking out an
adapter, you need to know if your device has a Lightning or 30-pin Dock
connector. You also need to know if your projector has HDMI or VGA input.
Use this flowchart to help you choose from among the four possible
adapters.

So great phrase: "They didn't go to a crowdfunding website to get the funds, they just did it."      -  Respect!


This idea has been all the time the leading thought with Mobie Ltd during this three years I have known Mr. Kari Vatanen (CEO) and that`s why we are so proud to use Mobie OnEdu platforms allready in 100 schools in Finland and in the future the OnEdu tablets!

The Stunning Geography of Incarceration

The Stunning Geography of Incarceration | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
America has more than 5,000 prisons. This is what they look like on our landscape.

 

Begley’s images capture the massive scale of this entire industry and the land that we devote to it (America has less than 5 percent of the world’s population but houses a quarter of the world’s prisoners). His website, in fact, includes only about 14 percent of all of the prisons he’s captured (each one is scaled to the same size).

This article is interesting from a geographic and social perspective, because the overhead pictures show just how much we alter the land with our prisons.  What is really interesting is how the US has less than five percent of the world's population but has one quarter of its prisoners.  Because of this, it can be inferred that the country has many prisons.  Yet, what astonished me about the prisons is that they seem to be out in the middle of nowhere.  The buildings seem expansive on the landscape and dominate it.  It just makes me wonder, how much does the United States spend on building and up-keeping these complexes.
