Paul Berry After building the product for Huffington Post, and owning the product and engineering groups at AOL after we were acquired, it was clear to me there was a huge gap between what the current CMS offering gave the world and what the world needed. Five years later we are at scale, moving the needle and doing to WordPress what Airbnb did to Craigslist. Social and Centralized WordPress, Drupal, and the custom CMS solutions of the world are all independent, non-connected instances that each need to be updated individually.
There are over 87 million instances of WordPress alone in the world, and each security upgrade, feature update, and every other single thing has to be updated for each site individually. By contrast, RebelMouse is a social, centralized platform built to keep up with the speed of the tech giants. Our updates are pushed out to all of our sites at once and sometimes even multiple times a day with content creation tools integrated directly into social APIs.

The anonymous Ballad of Bosworth Field says that “in Newarke laid was hee, that many a one might looke on him” —almost certainly a reference to the collegiate Church of the Annunciation of Our Lady of the Newarke ,  a Lancastrian foundation on the outskirts of medieval Leicester. In , ten years after the burial, Henry VII paid for a marble and alabaster monument to mark Richard’s grave.
The site of the friary was sold to two Lincolnshire property speculators and was later acquired by Robert Herrick, the Mayor of Leicester and eventual uncle of the poet Robert Herrick. The Lord Mayor Herrick built a mansion close to Friary Lane, on a site now buried under the modern Grey Friars Street, and turned the rest of the land into gardens. The antiquary Christopher Wren father of Christopher Wren the architect recorded that Herrick erected a monument on the site of the grave in the form of a stone pillar three feet 1 m high carved with the words, “Here lies the Body of Richard III, Some Time King of England.
If Speed had been to Herrick’s property he would surely have seen the commemorative pillar and gardens, but instead he reported that the site was “overgrown with nettles and weeds”  and there was no trace of Richard’s grave. The map of Leicester drawn by Speed incorrectly shows Greyfriars where the former Blackfriars was, suggesting that he had looked for the grave in the wrong place.
A coffin certainly seems to have existed; John Evelyn recorded it on a visit in , and Celia Fiennes wrote in that she had seen “a piece of his tombstone [sic] he lay in, which was cut out in exact form for his body to lie in; it remains to be seen at ye Greyhound [Inn] in Leicester but is partly broken. Although the coffin’s location is no longer known, its description does not match the style of late 15th-century coffins, and it is unlikely to have had any connection with Richard.
The capital of Puerto Rico is the oldest city under U. Augustine, Florida, founded in is the oldest city in the continental United States. The history of San Juan begins a long time before its official foundation, in , during his second voyage, Christopher Columbus landed in Puerto Rico. He founded the original settlement in Caparra, now known as Pueblo Viejo, behind the almost land-locked harbor just to the west of the present metropolitan area and the city quickly became Spain’s most important military outpost in the Caribbean.
A year later, the original settlement was relocated to a nearby coastal islet to the site of what is now called Old San Juan and named Puerto Rico Rich Port.

It will go on to examine how subsequent changes in scientific, economic and social preoccupations have influenced our attitudes to plants — from tools to exploit for food, fuel and industry, to objects of beauty, to being an essential global resource that must be conserved. It belongs to a group of plants with incredible longevity, stretching back around million years, surviving multiple climate changes, outliving the dinosaurs and pre-dating most mammals.
Its arrival at Kew coincided with the establishment of a system of plant naming that continues to dominate plant science today. Among the other extraordinary stories told in the series is how the race between Kew and Chatsworth House to flower the first giant Amazonian water-lily led to new possibilities in glasshouse design and ultimately to Crystal Palace, the greatest glasshouse ever built.

So suggests new research that tracked changes in two genes thought to help regulate brain growth, changes that appeared well after the rise of modern humans , years ago. That the defining feature of humans — our large brains — continued to evolve as recently as 5, years ago, and may be doing so today, promises to surprise the average person, if not biologists. Lahn and colleagues examined two genes, named microcephalin and ASPM, that are connected to brain size.
If those genes don’t work, babies are born with severely small brains, called microcephaly. Using DNA samples from ethnically diverse populations, they identified a collection of variations in each gene that occurred with unusually high frequency. In fact, the variations were so common they couldn’t be accidental mutations but instead were probably due to natural selection, where genetic changes that are favorable to a species quickly gain a foothold and begin to spread, the researchers report.
Lahn offers an analogy: Medieval monks would copy manuscripts and each copy would inevitably contain errors — accidental mutations. Years later, a ruler declares one of those copies the definitive manuscript, and a rush is on to make many copies of that version — so whatever changes from the original are in this presumed important copy become widely disseminated. Scientists attempt to date genetic changes by tracing back to such spread, using a statistical model that assumes genes have a certain mutation rate over time.
For the microcephalin gene, the variation arose about 37, years ago, about the time period when art, music and tool-making were emerging, Lahn said. For ASPM, the variation arose about 5, years ago, roughly correlating with the development of written language, spread of agriculture and development of cities, he said. Other scientists urge great caution in interpreting the research.
That the genetic changes have anything to do with brain size or intelligence “is totally unproven and potentially dangerous territory to get into with such sketchy data,” stressed Dr.

Meals and snacks will be provided on the plane. Day 2 Arriving Beijing When you arrive in Beijing, a Nexus Holiday local representative will meet and greet you at the airport. It is a true architectural masterpiece and home to the National Palace Museum. As a specialty of Beijing, “zhajiangmian” noodle with fried bean sauce is cooked by mixing noodles with vegetables and fried bean sauce. Chop up and cook cucumbers, bean sprouts.
Then prepare the fried bean sauce by first oil-frying diced meat with shallot and ginger, adding soybean sauce or sweet fermented flour sauce, and then further frying them. Stew the noodles, take them out of the boiler, pour the fried bean source on the noodles, and mix them with prepared vegetables. This is how “zhajiangmian” is cooked. Although there is no tour inside these buildings, it is a magnificent architectural structure from the outside, providing a perfect photo opportunity.

Wyoming Adell Durbin Arboretum: The restoration of this early estate includes an historical garden restoration of the formal gardens. This 31 acre country garden, dating back to , is on the national historic house and garden registry. Something is in flower most of the year, with spring showcasing masses of bulbs, wildflowers, and lenten roses, followed by red buds and peonies in June. The prairie and the butterfly garden are best in July, and then in August the magic lilies, Colchicum some species until October and hardy begonia bloom.
A Luminary Walk is offered on the first Sunday evening in December. The gardens of this acre park have been transformed many times during its history.
