Testing of blood taken from umbilical cords of newborn babies are showing the presence of many toxic chemicals.
However, as noted in the article, this isn't new. The ecologist Sandra Steingraber had dug up tons of research on this in her book Having Faith about her pregnancy. As an ecologist she decided to study her pregnancy and the womb as an ecosystem.
In college I struggled with Calculus. I'm no dummy, I score as a genius IQ on those kind of tests. Yet Calculus and I didn't get along.
As a computer science major I was required to take Calc I, II and III though for some reasons the fourth semester (Differential Equations) were not required, for me. I ended up taking each of the I, II and III semesters three or four times each. Yup, a genius IQ and I have to retake core cirricula like Calculus several times.
Want to know how to manage a project to build a website using Drupal? Planning and Managing Drupal Projects is a great choice, if you happen to be a Designer. According to Dani Nordin, the author of this tome, Designers often get put into the Project Management role alongside their Design role.
The originating purpose of the Drupal Migrate module is to import content from elsewhere. Where? Wordpress .. etc. Any place outside of Drupalsphere. The good thing is that the module is fairly open about what it will import, and therefore it's possible to import into a Drupal site from a Drupal site. And that by doing so, one can upgrade a Drupal site without going through the official Upgrade process.
Suppose you've added a field to a Drupal content type, but puzzlingly the field doesn't display on the node edit page? Or the field doesn't display when you view a node? Why would that happen? Maybe, you think, a custom themed node edit page simply didn't display the field? All kinds of ideas might come to mind while you're scratching your head wondering what might be going on. Adding a field to a content type should make it easy to edit and display data in that field, right?
One of my clients wants his paginated content to have clean URL's. That is, Drupal sites frequently generate sequences of pages with "?page=##" query parameters to select each page. But he doesn't want this as a query parameter, but instead in the URL. The idea we're working on is to decrease the chance of duplicate content on the site as recorded by Google in the Webmaster Tools.
The https://drupal.org/project/google_cse module appears to be a dead project - the Drupal 7 port hasn't had any activity in over 2 years. If you want to use a Google Custom Search Engine (CSE) on a Drupal 7 site, what do you do? Turns out it's relatively straight-forward to just generate the CSE over on Google's website, take the code and paste it into a Block, and that's it.
In the wake of a major security flaw found in Java, a petition is circulating demanding that Oracle stop bundling a payola toolbar with the Java runtime. This practice was begun by Sun Microsystems, during the time period I was a Java SE team-member, and is being continued by Oracle. It is to bundle a toolbar, the "Ask Toolbar," with the Java download, such as what's available through the java.com website. Sun, and now Oracle, earns a little bit of money per download.
In January 2010 I attended a launch party for Drupal 7, and was real excited at the new features etc. But I started to look into upgrading my sites, and found a bunch of modules had not been ported to Drupal 7 yet. Eleven months ago, eleven months after that launch party, I posted an inventory of module readiness for upgrading my sites to Drupal 7, and still found a number were not ready, though in most cases I was feeling shy of modules marked "beta".
