Both wear long jackets, and the shorter man on the left has a beard.(31 March 1811 – 16 August 1899) was a German chemist. He investigated emission spectra of heated elements, and discovered caesium (in 1860) and rubidium (in 1861) with Gustav Kirchhoff. Bunsen developed several gas-analytical methods, was a pioneer in photochemistry, and did early work in the field of organoarsenic chemistry. With his laboratory assistant, Peter Desaga, he developed the Bunsen burner, an improvement on the laboratory burners then in use. The Bunsen–Kirchhoff Award for spectroscopy is named after Bunsen and Kirchh

[GPC] There's no debate: Elizabeth May belongs in the debates

email post
The Old Boys’ Club is at it again. Elizabeth May has been denied entry into the televised leaders’ debates.
Instead of speaking up to defend true democracy, other party leaders seem relieved—perhaps due to the glowing reviews Elizabeth received after her first appearance in the 2008 debates.
What kind of democracy excludes a party with the support of one million of its citizens?
What kind of democracy allows a handful of TV executives to decide that a party that only runs candidates in one province has more right to be in a national leaders’ debate than a party with candidates in every riding?

Joomla vs. Drupal: An open source CMS shootout

email post

Drupal vs. Joomla

:An open source CMS shootout

Choosing a Web content management system often comes down to one question: Joomla or Drupal?


For many organizations (or individuals) with content to post and manage, blog tools like the highly popular WordPress may be more than adequate. But for companies with greater amounts of content, users, or complexity, including integration with ecommerce and also with other internal and external applications, a more comprehensive content management systems (CMS) is needed.
Here's a look at two popular open source content management systems: Drupal and Joomla! (the exclamation point is part of the official name, tsk tsk, but for punctuative simplicity I'm omitting it for the rest of this article). I've asked developers to weigh in on the strengths, weaknesses and unique features each offers, to help determine which is the best match for your organization's content needs.

Before we begin, it should be noted that both Joomla and Drupal keep getting updated -- e.g., Joomla 1.6 was released January 10, 2011, and Drupal 7 on January 5, 2011 -- and get more add-on modules. This is a good thing, obviously. But it also means that the opinions expressed in this article may become outdated or invalidated.

New Releases: 2.3.11 and 3.0.4

Posted by michael February 08, 2011 @ 10:39 PM


Two new versions of Ruby On Rails have been released today. As well as including a number of bugfixes they contain fixes for some security issues. The full details of each of the vulnerabilities are available on the rubyonrails-security mailing list. We strongly urge you to update production Rails applications as soon as possible. Rather than post the advisories individually to this blog, I’ll just link to the google talk archives.

Install the latest version using gem install rails. Or if you’re using bundler, edit your gemfile and run bundle update rails.
