Drupal : An Alternative To WordPress As A Blogging Platform

Among all CMSs, Drupal is often considered one of the highest-performing options. This open-source blogging software can support high-traffic websites with many pages. It has built-in performance features, like cache management and bandwidth optimization. These functions can boost your website speed and reduce bounce rates.

Drupal is also extensible. Its vast library of modules and themes offers complete control over your blog’s customization. That said, Drupal typically requires some technical expertise to maximize its features. To set up a Drupal blog, get a custom domain and a Drupal hosting service with a one-click installer. Once installed, you can change the website’s appearance, create your first article, or set up taxonomies to categorize your content.

The football club Arsenal uses Drupal to run its website, which includes a regularly-updated news section.

Key Features

  • Advanced taxonomy system. Create a custom classification to categorize your blog posts and pages. This feature is most useful for large-scale blogs and news publications.
  • Core contact form module. You can set up the user email to receive the messages and enable automatic replies.
  • Advanced user management. Define specific roles for different users, what actions they can perform, and what content they can access. If you have multiple contributors, this feature ensures smooth content collaboration.
  • Tight protection. Drupal security follows strict coding standards and a rigorous community review process to prevent cyber threats.
  • Over 40,000 modules. Yoast is available as a Drupal module to optimize the website for search engines. There are also other options to integrate social media, sell online, notify you of new comments, and more.

Cons

  • Steep learning curve. Like Joomla, Drupal is ideal for those with web development experience. Its advanced taxonomy system can be challenging to master.

Pricing

Drupal is a free blog platform, though you will need a hosting service and domain to use it.

Since it is more suitable for a blog with multiple users and a sizeable content library, consider getting Hostinger’s Business plan. At Rs.269/month, it comes with a free domain, 200 GB NVMe storage, unlimited bandwidth, and free CDN to optimize your website performance.

Three Horror Movies Set Around American Thanksgiving

Escape Room (2019)

Thanksgiving is a time to think about what you are thankful for. For the characters in Escape Room, they are tricked into participating in a deadly game that, in a way, should make them feel thankful for their lives (if they manage to escape with them). Escape Room takes place in late November during Thanksgiving break for college student Zoey Davis (Taylor Russell). At first, Zoey and five other people think they are playing an escape room for a cash prize, but they quickly realize that losing means death. They also realize that they were picked for a reason because the trapped rooms each represent a moment in one of the players lives when they were probably incredibly thankful to be alive.

Kristy (2014)

Justine (Haley Bennett) is a college student who spends the Thanksgiving break almost entirely alone on campus, with the only other two humans who haven’t gone home for the holiday being a security guard and a groundskeeper. Justine suddenly finds herself targeted by a cult of killers who are obsessed with murdering religious people, whom they refer to as “Kristys”—with “Kristy” being derived from a Latin phrase meaning “follower of God.” In the face of constant cyber-harassment and real-life threats, Justine is forced to battle the cult single-handedly.

Black Friday (2021)

The day after Thanksgiving, popularly known as the shopping holiday Black Friday, is awful. You have to get up way too early and fight crowds of people in stores for limited merchandise when you should really be sleeping and resting after a hard day of eating turkey and stuffing (or dressing). Instead of participating in Black Friday, why not stay home and watch the Bruce Campbell horror comedy Black Friday? You’ll witness shoppers turned into zombie-like monsters by alien parasites which is way better than anything a real store has to offer.

What Is Cold Brew Coffee & What Is The Difference Between Cold Brew & Iced Coffee

What is cold brew coffee and how is it made? What is the difference between cold brew and versus iced coffee?

#1 | HOW IS COLD BREW MADE? 

Coffee grounds (usually coarse) + water (cold or room temp) + time (8 to 24 hours) = most cold brew. Cold brew coffee is usually made by steeping coffee in water for a number of hours at cold or ambient (room) temperature. This slow, low temp brew makes cold brew taste very different from hot brewing the same type of coffee beans: mild chocolate and mellow, low acidity fruits are common flavor notes. We tested this for ourselves, and you can read our findings in our blog, “Cold Brew Taste Test: 5 Coffees, Hot vs. Cold”.

Cold brewing – or in many cases ambient temperature brewing – uses time in place of temperature to ensure extraction. Cold brewing can take between 8 and 24 hours, depending on who you ask and what your target cold brew taste is. Cold brew coffee is also often made as a concentrate which is then diluted – or “watered down” – to taste from there. So, while pour-over coffee and most drip coffees have a brewing ratio of about 1 to 16 coffee to water (ex: 20 grams of ground coffee brewed with 320 mL of water), cold brewing is usually done with less and with a wide range of possibilities to suit different tastes.

#2 | COLD BREW VS. ICED COFFEE

Iced coffee used to mostly be just what it sounds like: normal brewed drip coffee or espresso to which one adds ice. It was not — and maybe still isn’t — uncommon to watch a barista or diner employee simply take some coffee from batch brew, throw some ice in it, and call it “Iced Coffee”.

“Flash chill” or “flash brew” coffee is a more recently popularized innovation on iced coffee. These “flash” methods take two steps to increase the quality of iced coffee:

  1. reduce the ratio of water to coffee to account for the added ice that would otherwise dilute the coffee, and
  2. cool down the hot-brewed coffee immediately by brewing directly into the ice-filled vessel.

Cold brew is slow-steeped for longer periods of time. It differs from iced coffee, which has been hot brewed specifically to extract those additional layers of flavors and other natural coffee compounds that don’t get extracted much or at all in cold brew.

Everton Docked 10 Points For Financial Rules Breach; No Second From Bottom

Everton have received an immediate 10-point deduction after being found to have breached the Premier League’s financial rules. English top-flight clubs are permitted to lose ÂŁ105m over three years, and an independent commission found Everton’s losses to 2021-22 amounted to ÂŁ124.5m. The punishment is the biggest sporting sanction in the competition’s history and leaves Everton 19th in the table. The club said they were “both shocked and disappointed” and would appeal. The Premier League referred Everton to an independent commission in March but did not reveal the specifics of the club’s alleged breach.

That month, Everton posted financial losses for the fifth successive year after reporting a ÂŁ44.7m deficit in 2021-22. They admitted to being in breach of the profit and sustainability rules (PSR) for the period ending 2021-22, and the commission found in favour of the Premier League following a five-day hearing in October. In a statement, Everton said: “The club does not recognise the finding that it failed to act with the utmost good faith and it does not understand this to have been an allegation made by the Premier League during the course of proceedings. “Both the harshness and severity of the sanction imposed by the commission are neither a fair nor a reasonable reflection of the evidence submitted.

“The club will also monitor with great interest the decisions made in any other cases concerning the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.” The points deduction comes at a time of significant uncertainty at Everton. In September, owner Farhad Moshiri agreed to sell his 94% stake in the club to American investment fund 777 Partners. The takeover is going through the regulatory processes and, before this ruling, sources said it was on course to be completed by next month. The club are in the process of building a new stadium on the banks of the River Mersey at Bramley-Moore Dock, which is due to open in late 2024.

5 Benefits Of The Digital Nomad Lifestyle

What is a Digital Nomad?

Digital nomads are remote workers who usually travel to different locations. They often work in coffee shops, co-working spaces, or public libraries, relying on devices with wireless internet capabilities like smart phones and mobile hotspots to do their work wherever they want.

5 Benefits of Being a Digital Nomad

1. You’ll be more productive.

There’s no time to waste when you travel to gorgeous places almost every day. Exploring your new surroundings will motivate you to get your work done as soon as possible. Adventure can be one of the best types of motivation.

2. You’ll have more breakthrough ideas.

Creativity happens when you mash seemingly unrelated concepts together to form a new idea. Neuroscientists call this synaptic play, and the more incongruent the concepts are, the more synapses occur in your brain. Working in a different place everyday gives you a lot of diverse experiences that you call pull from to make these creative connections. And when your brain is chock full of these diverse inputs, your ideas are much more inventive.

3. You’ll become more adaptable.

Constantly traveling to new places pushes you out of your comfort zone. And to adapt to new environments everyday, you need to be willing to engage with different people and cultures. This makes you more open to new experiences in the future. Traveling also improves your brain’s reaction to change. When you travel, the stress of navigating a foreign place sprouts dendrites in your brain. These dangling extensions increase your brain’s capacity and attentiveness during new and challenging situations in the future. In a nutshell, traveling strengthens your desire and ability to learn new skills.

4. You’ll have more time to do the things you love.

Even though work can be great, we still work to live, not the other way around. Finishing work faster gives you more time in your schedule to explore your surroundings, do the things you’re passionate about, and spend more time with loved ones.

5. You’ll make lifelong friendships.

Adventure and memorable experiences forge close connections between people. When you embark on your journey, you’ll meet other digital nomads and become friends with them. And if you travel with a friend or significant other, your relationship will be closer than ever before.

A Fantasy Wish List Of Holiday Presents I Wish I Got

Have you started holiday gift shopping yet? What’s on everyone’s wish lists for holiday presents?

Well, I don’t think I have every received anything more than small little Secret Santa gifts from the various companies that I have worked at. You know the one where you pick a name from a bowl and you have to buy a gift or two within the small budget that you are told to stick to and gift wrap it and give it the day before or maybe after Christmas at the office.

Those usually are what we get and give around here. But if I had a nice big Christmas wish, you know just for the sake of creating a Wish List so to say, I would hope to get a new laptop – one from either HP, Dell or Asus ith 16GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive and a Corei 7 atleast. How about a new smart tv – a 60 inch Samsung or Mi will go nicely in my room thank you very much. And a Blueray players plus a bunch of my favourite movies on Blueray And a Samsung Galay S24 Ultra – top of the line, beautiful and awesome. A new proper mic for my videos that I shoot for Youtube and maybe a nice big headset.

I would also like a new mattress to replace my old one. And though I have an Amazon Echo I would like a Google Home device. A new Tablet pc – like the Samsung Galaxy S9. What else? Oh well while we are at this fantasy list, how about a new apartment please? LOL.

What I Have Been Watching Lately & Planning Ahead

What shows are you watching lately? Make a top 10 list (shows on Netflix, Thanksgiving movies, classic TV shows to re-watch, etc).

I can’t say that I have a 10 ten list of shows that I am currently watching. I don’t get that much free time to sit or lie back and watch tv that much. Anyways, I just completed – after a long, long gap – the 8 episodes of Star Wars Ahsoka. It wasn’t the best but then what is? I am about to start Loki in a day or two but I also want to get back to watching Star Trek shows and other favourite shows that I have watched before. Like Buffy and Flashpoint and Farscape.

I also finished the recently concluded Star Trek Lower Decks and am watching season 1 of the new show which is a sequel to Frasier, Frasier 2023. Speaking off, two nights ago I started watching the original Frasier off my dvds. It’s so much funnier than the new one. However I do need to adjust my timings to make sure that I get enough time to relax and watch all these shows. Planning to watch them all is one thing but actually doing that is different. Maybe this weekend I should try and get to watching a couple of these shows.

I will talk about movies in a new blog post. I can never plan them well. I have been planning to rewatch all the Star Trek movies as well as get to Lord Of The Rings rewatch – I have been meaning to rewatch both have been planning it for so long I wonder when will I ever get round to do it. I think a 3 day weekend I should get around to watching the 3 Lord Of The Ring movies.

What’s Your Preferred Warm Drink As The Temperatures Drop?

Warm Beverages: What’s your preferred warm drink as the temperatures drop? Is it tea, hot chocolate, or perhaps a spiced latte?

Well since I was very young, I have been a coffee drinker. Most of my 47 years on this earth. I started off with tea when I stopped drinking just milk (flavoured or otherise) and by age 8 I started getting tea. However within a couple of years I had moved to coffee and I can safely say that I have a love affair with coffee and prefer drinking it.

Until this year I usually only drank coffee and very rarely did I drink tea. Like maybe when I went to a friend’s house or a relative’s house and they made tea, I’d drink it. And yes at times I have enjoyed an iced tea. One of my favourite drinks is a peach ice tea, which is really very delicious and I’ve also had just regular ice tea and honey ice tea. But since this year I have been drinking less coffee and more tea.

So I usually have 3 coffees in a day sometimes 4 – so now I have 2 teas and 1 coffee or maybe even 3 cups of tea on the weekends. But at the office I tend to drink 1 more coffee instead of a tea since I prefer their coffees to their tea. On a cold day I would prefer to drink a hot coffee.

Prompt from November Journaling: 55 Writing Ideas, Topics, And Prompts To Inspire You

Eight Facts About Labrador Retrievers

1. Labs Love the Water

In fact, these dogs were made for the water! Their thick tail (sometimes called an “otter tail”) is used as a powerful rudder, their webbed feet help them swim fast, and their thick, waterproof coats keep them happy even in cold water, like the icy Newfoundland waters where they were first bred. All of these traits make Labs great competitors in Diving Dogs trials.

2. They Are Purpose-Bred Hunting Dogs

Labs started out as duck retrievers, and after they were brought back to England in the 1800s, the British bred them as game-hunting companions. Today, they’re excellent retrievers who can work in a variety of settings, including waterfowl hunting and game hunting, often for many hours at a time. You’ll find Labs excelling in Retriever Field Trials and Retriever Hunting Tests.

3. They’re Very Versatile Workers

Thanks to their intelligence, eagerness to please, and willingness to work hard, Labradors are invaluable workers in a variety of fields. They’re among the most popular choices for service dog work, as well as search and rescue, bomb and drug detection, and therapy dog work.

4. Be Prepared for Endless Energy

Though they’re famously laid-back, Labs were made to run, swim, and work. Labs that don’t receive ample exercise, including at least one long, brisk walk per day, might end up displaying destructive behaviors, like chewing on objects around the house or escaping the yard.

5. Puppy Training and Obedience Classes Are Highly Recommended

These bold, bouncy dogs are strong and full of energy, so proper training and socialization are essential. Luckily, with their eager-to-please, intelligent demeanors, these dogs can make training classes a joy for themselves and their owners.

6. They Come in Three Conformation Colors

The three colors are yellow, black, and chocolate. All three colors of Labrador Retrievers are shown in the same ring during dog shows.

7. They’re Incredible Versatile Sporting Dogs

With their characteristic intelligence, obedience, and eagerness to please, Labradors excel at a variety of dog sports. Besides dock diving and hunting trials, they tend to perform very well in sports like Agility, AKC Rally, and Obedience.

8. Color Is Not an Indication of Character

Some claim that yellow Labs are the laziest of the breed, while black Labs are the best hunters, but none of these claims are supported by science. Like people, each dog is different, and some breeders develop their stock for its skills in the field, while others are concerned more with conformation to the breed standard. However, none of these differences directly depend on the dog’s color.

Five Weird Laws In Thailand

1) It’s illegal to leave the house without your underwear on.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m not accustomed to strolling the streets sans pants, so this particular law isn’t exactly something I feel like I really need to think about. That said, if you do have a penchant for airy nethers, I don’t really see how this law can be checked or enforced, so you’re probably safe. Just don’t head out without your trousers, too – that’d be a dead giveaway.

2) It’s a crime to step on any Thai currency.

Again, this isn’t one I think is particularly difficult to avoid. Personally, I don’t go to the trouble of switching my currency only to fling it on the pavement and start trampling it, but just in case it’s a hobby of yours, consider your time in Thailand an enforced detox from it.

3) It’s a punishable offence to throw (used) chewing gum on the pavement.

I wouldn’t really class this one as silly – unusual, perhaps, but not an out-and-out silly one of the laws in Thailand. Plus, it’s one that’s definitely worth bearing in mind because there’s a pretty hefty fine if you get caught (nearly £400). The penalty for skipping that fine? Jail. That’s one costly piece of litter.

4) You mustn’t drive a car shirtless.

Clearly, this is only something to think about if you’re planning on hiring a car, but since us Brits do tend to be keen to whip off as many clothes as possible as soon as the temperature becomes mildly warm, it’s probably one that’s worth bearing in mind.

5) It’s a criminal offence to be critical of the king or other members of the Thai royal family.

I had a little trouble deciding whether this one should fall into the ‘unusual’ or ‘serious’ category because, in my opinion, it fits both. But as you can see, the weirdness of it won in the end. The sentence for being caught making defamatory comments – known as Lese Majeste – is usually three to 15 years (sometimes more!) in prison, though, making it no laughing matter – so mind your Ps and Qs.

Arsenal 3 Burnley 1

Arsenal moved level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City courtesy of a hard-fought victory over beleaguered Burnley.The Gunners, beaten at Newcastle last weekend, had struggled to break down a disciplined Clarets side for much of the first half but broke the deadlock when Leandro Trossard bravely nodded in at the far post for Arsenal’s 1,000th goal at Emirates Stadium. Burnley equalised eight minutes into the second half when Josh Brownhill’s low shot was deflected into the net by Gabriel, but the visitors were level for only three minutes before William Saliba headed in Trossard’s corner from point-blank range. Oleksandr Zinchenko completed the scoring with an acrobatic finish into the top corner after Dara O’Shea had inadvertently steered another Trossard corner onto the crossbar.

Arsenal finished the game with 10 men after second-half substitute Fabio Vieira was shown a straight red card for a studs-up challenge on Brownhill, but the Gunners held on comfortably. Burnley stay in the relegation zone while Arsenal trail league leaders City on goal difference – although Pep Guardiola’s team can restore their three-point lead with victory at Chelsea on Sunday. Arsenal have had more than their fair share of injury troubles in recent weeks, but they were given a welcome boost before kick-off as Saka and Takehiro Tomiyasu, who both suffered knocks in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Sevilla, were passed fit to start.

Saka was heavily involved in the early stages and went closest to giving the home side the lead inside the opening 20 minutes, his rising effort from the edge of the area tipped onto the crossbar by Clarets goalkeeper James Trafford. Kai Havertz – who endured another frustrating afternoon – should have done better from a Saka corner and Trossard had another powerful drive tipped over by Trafford, but the Belgian made no mistake after Saka rose highest to steer a Zinchenko delivery into his path. The Gunners are just the third Premier League side to score 1,000 goals at a venue since the 2006-07 season, after City (1,138 at Etihad Stadium) and Chelsea (1,028 at Stamford Bridge).

The home side felt Brownhill’s second-half equaliser should have been disallowed for a foul on Tomiyasu by Luca Koleosho in the build-up – but they did not have to wait long to restore their advantage as Saliba was left unmarked to nod home his first of the campaign. There were few complains from Arteta or his players when Vieira was dismissed for a reckless challenge on Brownhill, but Zinchenko’s scissor kick nine minutes earlier had all but ended Burnley’s hopes of salvaging a point.
