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.
Buried treasure doesn't just exist in the movies.The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) recently announced new details of the discovery of the San José ? a Spanish galleon carrying a treasure of gold, silver and emeralds that went down in the War of Spanish Succession in 1708. You could quite literally say that its cargo is worth a boat-load ? valued in the billions of dollars today.Gold Under Those WavesThe sunken ship was found off the coast of Columbia in 2015, but si
It has been called ?the world's most dangerous meal,? a fish whose internal organs are laced with one of the deadliest toxins on Earth. Specialized restaurants in Japan and a few other places serve carefully prepared fugu flesh as an expensive delicacy, in part because of this risky thrill.But Byrappa Venkatesh was drawn to the fugu for an entirely different reason: It has the smallest genome of any vertebrate. That quality was gold back in the 1990s, when geneticists were still racing
The 'shark' will soon gobble up La Niña's cool surface waters. What might this mean for the climate later this year?It's not every day that you see an animated graphic like the one above hosted on the website of an ordinarily staid U.S. government agency.And yes, that is indeed an illustration comparing a complex Earth system phenomenon to, well, a shark.The comparison comes from the fabulous folks at the ENSO Blog, published under the aegis of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
But looks are deceiving: the West has seen too little of the white stuffViews of Earth like this once seemed almost profound ? at least I always thought so. That's because we weren't accustomed to seeing our home from a planetary perspective.Now, of course, views of Earth from space are commonplace. So maybe some of us have become a bit jaded. And that's one reason why I'm sharing this photograph taken by an astronaut aboard the International Space Station last month.Sure, we've se
'Wall-E' is one of a pair of CubeSats that's following a lander spacecraft as it cruises toward MarsIn 1990, the Voyager 1 spacecraft was cruising outward in the solar system, heading toward interstellar space. The late Carl Sagan, a member of the Voyager imaging team, had the idea of pointing the spacecraft back toward home for one last look.The result was an image that Sagan made famous in his 1994 book "Pale Blue Dot" ? an image showing Earth as a barely visible bluish dot.N
On July 14, 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft swept past Pluto, returning eye-popping images of the dwarf planet and its huge (relatively speaking) moon, Charon. At the time, the best existing images of Pluto showed nothing more than an enigmatic blur. New Horizons revealed a world of astonishing diversity: organics-coated dark patches, ice mountains, nitrogen glaciers, and methane snows, all in a state of astonishing activity considering the temperatures there are only about 40 degrees abov
Water, it's safe to say, is pretty important. A key necessity for life to flourish, the substance is also chemically important, the ?universal solvent? that enables many familiar reactions. Also, we need to drink it or we die.It's becoming an increasing concern. South Africa's Cape Town barely managed to push back its ?Day Zero,? when taps would literally run dry, into 2019. The American Southwest faces a similarly dry future.And yet, Earth is pretty wet ? 71 percent of the surface i
A trio of new studies, two in Nature and the third in Science, analyzed genetic material from scores of ancient humans to create a new map of human movement, as well as the spread of language, the hepatitis B virus and horse domestication, across the sprawling Eurasian steppes. The ancient genomes sequenced for the papers ? with more findings to follow, promise the authors ? represent the largest collection of ancient human DNA ever studied.Stretching nearly unbroken from Hungary to Ch
A 'cloud camera' 40 miles away and high on a mountain captured the eerie glow emanating from continuing volcanic activityLast week I featured time-lapse video capturing the ash plume from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano exploding skyward higher than Mt. Everest. Now, the same camera, located on the Gemini North telescope atop 13,803-foot Mauna Kea, has captured yet another remarkable video.The new time-lapse shows the intense glow from an extensive region of volcanic fissures on Hawaii's Big
What's happening in the West over the long run is less about reduced snowfall and more the result of warming temperaturesIn the western United States, the most important reservoirs are not the manmade ones along rivers, but the natural ones high up in our mountains: the snowpack that accumulates all winter, peaking in April.As the animation of satellite images above shows, this crucial source of water is looking significantly depleted as we head toward the hot and dry conditions of sum
