This is a module that allows you and your users to read RSS/RDF/ATOM news[or feeds] directly on your site. It also allows to generate the feeds from your site contents to be syndicated to others. Basically, RSS / RDF / ATOM news [you might call "News on short"] is given by a title, a link and a short description that came only through RSS chanel or ATOM entry from a RSS/RDF/ATOM URL [you may see it below]. The feeds are retained on your database for a faster loading of you website but this module have a prune system that can empty your DB[ feeds] at a given number of days or when feeds reaches a certain number(You might, as well, to never empty the database). As administrator you have a lot of options for this addon like: General settings, Feeds URLs Management, Categories Management, Multiheadlines Blocks Management, Database Operations, News refreshing at once, Various infos and Statistics about feeds, My Feeds. Every section have numerous settings and options. Throught these option you can set how your feeds will look onto your site, you can get some informations for a better usage of this module and how the generated feeds are formated[type, content].
As a user you can read the feeds, search by specific keywords in these feeds or even submit an interesting feeds URL [RSS/RDF/ATOM]. The feeds are organized on categories so you can browse specific categories.
This module comes also with three blocks: one called Multiheadlines-central that can be used only as central block[you can see it here on this site at the bottom of the page], one that allows you to search in these feeds, one with feeds categories. You can can also create two more block types [scrollable and marquee type] in unlimited amount[on the right side].
The great thing about this module is the fact that you have always fresh news on your site without doing something [news gathering it's done automatically].
Reminder Module v2.0 for PHP-Nuke
With this addon, your users from your site can send automated e-mails at selected dates, messages named reminders. These reminders can be sent to a specified e-mail adress or to it's own adress used at registration and have a remind purpose [birthdates, deadlines, bills paying,...etc].
Also you can set repetitive reminders[daily, weekly, monthly and yearly-the latest mainly for birthdates] too, not only regular[unique] reminders. As administrator you can limit the number of reminders of users to avoid spamming and you can edit a header and a footer of the message that will be sent.
As user you can add, edit or delete personal reminders.
It's a small utillity very helpfull for people with a very busy daily schedule. You will forget nothing from now on, with this module installed.
It comes with an installer so installation process is very easy.
Future of SpaceflightThe upcoming year is shaping up to be a big one for private spaceflight. A number of big players in the race to get paying passengers to space seem poised to actually make that happen, and companies like Boeing and SpaceX have announced a number of ambitious goals.It looks like they might be beat by the Brit, though. Last week, billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson claimed that his company Virgin Galactic will send astronauts into space by Christmas of this year.
The idea for the @52CitScientists account sprang from a conversation between Mar Dixon and Darlene Cavalier. Soon after, they enlisted Zsófi Szendrei to grow the account and make it a success. You can find @52CitScientists on Twitter and Instagram.Mar Dixon is a self-described ?troublemaker for sectors who need a kick up the bum.? SciStarter has a unique connection with her, because Mar Dixon is sister to Darlene Cavalier, SciStarter's founder!When SciStarter interviewed her, she was
Scientists have announced a breakthrough in stem cell research that could have major implications for medical treatments that involve regenerating human cells. And their discovery came from an unlikely source: royal jelly. It's the same substance honey bees use to turn a common bee larvae into a queen.Royal JellyA queen bee starts her life just like any other bee ? a larva in the honey bee hive, taken care of by her siblings. But when it's time for a new queen, this larva is pulled aside
On November 26th, NASA's Insight mission will land on Mars. That's the plan anyway. Something like half of all Mars missions have failed, usually well before they approached the Red Planet, either because of launch failure or some error on its outward trip. While space agencies' records have improved, especially over the last decade, Mars is littered with spacecraft that didn't quite stick the landing -- or, in some cases, orbital insertion. Here are some of the highlights.First to Fai
In 2016, astronomers announced there was a new planet in the outer solar system. Planet Nine, supposedly larger than Neptune and located far beyond the orbits of the planets known so far, is a particular mystery since no one has yet observed it. Scientists have merely tracked its supposed orbit by watching the gravitational pull the planet exerts on the asteroids and space debris near it.But this isn't the first time scientists have predicted planets before spotting them. It's not ev
Detecting Dark MatterFor years, researchers have been hunting for dark matter, which is thought to make up about 27 percent of the entire known universe. Now, an innovative team of scientists says they may have figured out a new way to detect the elusive substance using an international network of atomic clocks.In 1998, with observations from the Hubble Space Telescope, scientists found that the universe was expanding faster and faster, which contradicted the expectation that gravity wou
As a gift to the citizen science community, this holiday season, SciStarter created a beautiful citizen science calendar!This calendar was developed with the help of a lot of people. The Citizen Science Association Listservand Jill Nugent compiled an awesome collection of events, and then Erica Chenoweth took this list and created a Google Calendar with even more citizen science prompts.You can add to the Google Calendar whenever you wish, to any month in the year, by emailing Caroli
In a small windowless room on a sweltering summer's day, I find myself face-to-face with an entomological rock star. I'm at the University of Lincoln in eastern England, inside an insectary, a room lined with tanks and jars containing plastic plants and dozing insects. Before I know it, I'm being introduced to a vibrant-green katydid from Colombia.?Meet Copiphora gorgonensis,? says Fernando Montealegre-Z, discoverer of this six-legged celebrity. The name's familiar: It's been splashe
President Trump falsely uses frigid weather to cast doubt on human-caused warmingIt sure is cold outside ? at least in the northeastern United States. In fact, some portions of the region could experience their coldest Thanksgiving on record.Blame it on an Arctic blast that is sending temps plummeting to levels normally associated with the dead of winter, not turkey day.It's called weather, not climate ? a distinction that the President of the United States either doesn't care abou
