    27 Aug 2014 | 10:22 pm
    (WHITING, Ind.) — An explosion at a BP refinery in Whiting, Indiana, has rattled nearby homes. No injuries have been reported and no evacuation has been ordered. A Whiting Fire Department spokesman said the explosion late Wednesday could be heard clearly several blocks from the plant. However, when fire commanders called plant officials to see if assistance was needed, they were told only to stand by. Plant officials say the plant’s fire department was handling the incident. Officials at the BP plant, just east of Chicago, did not immediately provide details about the explosion. The…

    When you look at Kevin Frayer’s slightly unsettling images, you ask yourself if masked Mexican wrestlers have invaded the coastal Chinese city of Qingdao. But no. The lucha libre look is just the latest in beachwear, a must-have for women worried about getting too much — or, um, any — sun. And while they may look a little frightening — “other people may worry you plan to rob a bank!” observed one netizen — they are the talk of the town, from China’s stodgy state press to supposedly chic French fashion magazines. The facekini, or lianjini in Chinese, first made…

    (NEW YORK) — Video games have been a spectator sport since teenagers crowded around arcade machines to watch friends play “Pac-Man.” And for decades, kids have gathered in living rooms to marvel at how others master games like “Street Fighter II” and “Super Mario Bros.” But today there’s Twitch, the online network that attracts millions of visitors, most of whom watch live and recorded footage of other people playing video games —in much the same way that football fans tune in to ESPN.

  • 6 Rules That Should Be Guiding Your Career

    Daniel Pink’s The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need conveys a number of principles about the world of work that everyone should take note of. Why? Though Pink doesn’t bog the story down with academic research, all of his core ideas are backed up by plenty of studies, many of which I’ve posted about in the past. So what does he have to say? Six simply-stated concepts: There is no plan. Think strengths, not weaknesses. It’s not about you. Persistence trumps talent. Make excellent mistakes. Leave an imprint.

  • ‘Don’t Shoot': Rappers, R&B Singers Release Mike Brown Tribute Song

    27 Aug 2014 | 6:50 pm
    A slew of rappers and R&B singers released a song Wednesday that pays tribute to Michael Brown, the 18-year-old unarmed black teen shot in Missouri by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. The song, entitled “Don’t Shoot” features artists including The Game, Rick Ross and Diddy, all of whom speak passionately about the need for justice in the wake of the teen’s death. Its release comes only two days after Brown’s funeral and two weeks after his hometown of Ferguson exploded in protest of the police. The Game told Rolling Stone he wanted to release the song because the issues…

  • Today I Learned: How to Enable Flash Developers

    Phil Hollows
    15 Aug 2014 | 9:39 am
    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad! So if you’re a Flash developer, crossdomain.xml is now available on our servers to permit you to use…
  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    Phil Hollows
    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…
  • The FeedBlitz API: Workflow for Building a Plugin

    12 Aug 2014 | 12:48 pm
    The goal of this example is to show you what API calls to make so you can programmatically add a subscriber’s email (and other information) to a list at FeedBlitz. Let’s assume you’re developing a plugin for WordPress; any WP plugin developer should be able to integrate with FeedBlitz! The example below isn’t limited to plugins, of course; it can work with any web site, product or service you can extend programmatically.  You use simple Web requests, so it’s pretty easy for a web developer to do. Prerequisites The user of your plugin will need: A FeedBlitz premium account At…
  • The FeedBlitz REST API

    The REST API is an XML-based API. It is, like FeedBlitz itself, complex and at times may be challenging to use. For simple use cases, such as integrating a FeedBlitz subscription mechanism into your site or service, we recommend using one of the APIs I’ve already covered this week, or a plugin / widget that has already done the work for you. If you’re building such a plugin, widget or tool, then depending on your use cases you may need to delve into the REST API in some depth.

Across this flat-topped headland lies the typical clutter of a wildlife site bordering suburbia seats, cars, dogs, walkers but as we drop down the slopes, peace descends too, and we are in botanical heaven. The climate here is topsy-turvy: one day blasted by the blistering sun, the next scoured by salted winds. But today, a weak sun brings some warmth and a glassy kayakers sea…
