Toxins found in "cord blood" of newborn babies

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.

Highly recommended calculus "text"

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.

Migrate module can be alternate Drupal upgrade process, not just for importing foreign content

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.

Fixing things when your Drupal content fields don't display or you can't edit the field

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?

Google+ Shared Endorsement's - probably everyone should turn them off

endorsements1-0690b6be47beef2864e7fff3248233b7Google recently introduced "Shared Endorsements" which means Google will repurpose your Like's in advertising.  In other words, while showing an advertisement, the ad might show "So-and-so liked this" using data derived from your Likes or +1's on Google+.  This could be helpful to someone browsing for a product to see that their friend liked the th

Generating clean URL's for paginated content on Drupal sites

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.

Unfortunately there really isn't a way to do this. Except for the Clean Pagination module https://drupal.org/project/cleanpager

Add a Google CSE to a Drupal 7 site without using google_cse module

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.

Google's Blogger now supports autoposting to Google+ pages

The Google-Plusification of Blogger is proceeding, with Google now making it possible to immediately create a post on a Google+ page for any post made on a Blogger blog.  This raises the spectre of blogs roboposting and filling Google+ the way it happens on Twitter.  However, it's quite convenient to automate some of your social media interaction.  This is a new feature, and follows a move a few months to use Google+ for comments on a Blogger post.

It means that Google is giving Blogger blog owners the possibility to use Google+ for the community of commenters around the blog.
