WordPress is a free and open-source content management system written in PHP and paired with a MySQL or MariaDB database. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system, referred to within WordPress as Themes. WordPress was created as a blog-publishing system but has evolved to support other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, membership sites, learning management systems and online stores. WordPress is used by more than 60 million websites, including 33.6% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2019, WordPress is one of the most popular content management system solutions in use. WordPress has been used for other application domains such as pervasive display systems. WordPress was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, American developer Matt Mullenweg and English developer Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog; the software is released under the GPLv2 license. To function, WordPress has to be installed on a web server, either part of an Internet hosting service like or a computer running the software package in order to serve as a network host in its own right.

A local computer may be used for single-user learning purposes. "WordPress is a factory that makes webpages" is a core analogy designed to clarify the functions of WordPress: it stores content and enables a user to create and publish webpages, requiring nothing beyond a domain and a hosting service. WordPress has a web template system using a template processor, its architecture is a front controller, routing all requests for non-static URIs to a single PHP file which parses the URI and identifies the target page. This allows support for more human-readable permalinks. WordPress users may switch among different themes. Themes allow users to change the look and functionality of a WordPress website without altering the core code or site content; every WordPress website requires at least one theme to be present and every theme should be designed using WordPress standards with structured PHP, valid HTML, Cascading Style Sheets. Themes may be directly installed using the WordPress "Appearance" administration tool in the dashboard, or theme folders may be copied directly into the themes directory, for example via FTP.

The PHP, HTML and CSS found in themes can be directly modified to alter theme behavior, or a theme can be a "child" theme which inherits settings from another theme and selectively overrides features. WordPress themes are classified into two categories: free and premium. Many free themes are listed in the WordPress theme directory, premium themes are available for purchase from marketplaces and individual WordPress developers. WordPress users may create and develop their own custom themes; the free theme Underscores created by the WordPress developers has become a popular basis for new themes. WordPress' plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog; as of January 2020, has 55,487 plugins available, each of which offers custom functions and features enabling users to tailor their sites to their specific needs. However, this does not include the premium plugins that are available, which may not be listed in the repository.

These customizations range from search engine optimization, to client portals used to display private information to logged in users, to content management systems, to content displaying features, such as the addition of widgets and navigation bars. Not all available plugins are always abreast with the upgrades and as a result they may not function properly or may not function at all. Most plugins are available through WordPress themselves, either via downloading them and installing the files manually via FTP or through the WordPress dashboard. However, many third parties offer plugins through their own websites, many of which are paid packages. Web developers who wish to develop plugins need to learn WordPress' hook system which consists of over 300 hooks divided into two categories: action hooks and filter hooks. Phone apps for WordPress exist for WebOS, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry; these applications, designed by Automattic, have options such as adding new blog posts and pages, moderating comments, replying to comments in addition to the ability to view the stats.

The WordPress Accessibility Team has worked to improve the accessibility for core WordPress as well as support a clear identification of accessible themes. The WordPress Accessibility Team provides continuing educational support about web accessibility and inclusive design; the WordPress Accessibility Coding Standards state that "All new or updated code released in WordPress must conform with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 at level AA." WordPress features integrated link management. Automatic filters are included, providing standardized formatting and styling of text in posts. WordPress supports the Trackback and Pingback standards for displaying links to other sites that have themselves linked to a post or an article. WordPress posts can be edited in HTML, using the visual editor, or using one of a number of plugins that allow for a variety of customized editing features. Prior to version 3, WordPress supported one blog per installation, although multiple concurrent copies may be run from different directories if configured to use separate database tables.

Mark Pavelich

Mark Thomas Pavelich is an American former professional ice hockey forward who played 355 regular season games in the National Hockey League for the New York Rangers, Minnesota North Stars and San Jose Sharks between 1981 and 1992. Pavelich was a member of the 1980 U. S. Olympic hockey team that won the gold medal in what has been called the "Miracle on Ice"; the son of Croatian immigrants, Pavelich grew up in Minnesota. A star performer on his high school hockey team, Eveleth High School, he attended the University of Minnesota Duluth as an amateur player for three seasons in 1977–79. Pavelich is best known for being a member of the 1980 U. S. Olympic hockey team. In the game against the Soviet Union, Pavelich was credited with two assists, including one on Mike Eruzione's game-winning goal. After the Olympics, not drafted by an NHL team, played one season for HC Lugano in Switzerland where he registered 73 points, he returned to the US national team for the 1981 Ice Hockey World Championship tournament.

He was brought back to the United States the following year by his former US Olympic coaches Herb Brooks and Craig Patrick, who managed of the New York Rangers. Despite his size, Pavelich thrived in his role as a center for the Rangers, holds the Rangers record for most points as a rookie. However, his career in New York was ended by a feud with Brooks' successor Ted Sator, who introduced a traditional North American dump-and-chase style of play. Pavelich played for Brooks with the Minnesota North Stars in 1987 before returning to Europe, he played two seasons in Italy for HC Bolzano. The expansion San Jose Sharks brought him out of retirement for the 1991–92 NHL season, but he would play only two games for the Sharks before retiring. However, he did record an assist on the Sharks' first-ever goal, scored by Craig Coxe in the third period of a 4-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on October 4, 1991. On February 23, 1983, Pavelich became the first American to score five goals in a single game, against the Hartford Whalers at Madison Square Garden.

In the 2009 book 100 Ranger Greats, the authors ranked Pavelich at No. 83 all-time of the 901 New York Rangers who had played during the team's first 82 seasons. Pavelich married Kara Burmachuk in 1994, she died at age 44 in an accidental fall from a second-story balcony at their Lutsen, home Sept. 6, 2012. In April 2014, Pavelich announced that he was putting his Olympic medal up for auction, with bidding beginning at $62,500; the medal sold in May 2014 for $262,900 through Dallas-based auction house Heritage Auctions. Pavelich is the second player from the 1980 team to put a medal up for sale, with teammate Mark Wells having sold his in late 2010. Pavelich's brother-in-law was a hockey player and now coaches for the Hibbing Bluejackets, in Hibbing, Minnesota. Pavelich was arrested on Aug. 15, 2019, after assaulting and injuring a neighbor with whom he'd earlier been fishing. He was charged with four felony counts: second- and third-degree assault, possession of a short-barreled shotgun and possession of a firearm with a missing or altered serial number.

On Oct. 28, Pavelich's upcoming trial was suspended and he was found incompetent to stand trial by Cook County District Judge Michael Cuzzo, who said Pavelich "lacks the ability to rationally consult with counsel, is incapable of understanding the proceedings, is incapable of participating in the defense due to mental illness or deficiency." Cuzzo initiated civil commitment proceedings. On Dec. 4, Cuzzo ruled that Pavelich is mentally ill and dangerous and ordered him committed to a secure treatment facility. Pavelich's sister, Jean Gevik, has said that she believes he is suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, had noticed behavioral changes in the years leading up to the incident which led to his arrest. In Miracle on Ice, a 1981 TV movie about the 1980 U. S. hockey team, Pavelich is portrayed by Jack Blessing. In the 2004 Disney film Miracle, he is portrayed by Chris Koch. Koch played junior hockey for the Delta Ice Hawks in his native Canada before concussions ended his career.

Childhood Memories (song)

"Childhood Memories" was the fourth single to be released by British Sea Power.

This track was known as "Memories of Childhood!". Acoustic guitar and keyboards are prominent throughout the track; the 7" release was wrongly labeled as having "Favours in the Beetroot Fields" as the flipside, whereas it is "Strange Communication". It peaked at a lowly number 90 on the UK Singles Chart. "Childhood Memories" – 3:35 "Favours in the Beetroot Fields" – 1:19 "Strange Communication" – 4:07 "Childhood Memories" – 3:35 "Strange Communication" – 4:07 Official website "Childhood Memories" at Salty Water Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Gordon Moskowitz

Gordon Blaine Moskowitz is a social psychologist working in the field of social cognition. He is a professor in the Department of Psychology at Lehigh University, his primary research interests are in examining: 1) social inferences which occur with neither the intention of forming an impression nor the awareness that one has done so. This work has been applied to the question of how stereotypes impact medical diagnosis and treatment and contribute to health disparities, as well as to how medical training can implement what is known about controlling stereotyping and prejudice to reduce such bias and minimize health disparities. Moskowitz was born in New York to Howard and Geraldine Moskowitz, he attended New York University. His post-doctoral training was at the Max Planck Institute on Leopoldstrasse in Germany. From 1994 through 2001 he was an assistant professor of psychology at Princeton University; the nature of stereotyping and the question of how people can prevent stereotypic thoughts from occurring or, if they do occur, prevent stereotypic thinking from influencing their evaluations of and actions toward others.

The "snap judgments" made when meeting, or observing others. The manner in which goals, operating outside of conscious awareness, control cognition, such as 1) egalitarian goals inhibiting one's stereotypes, 2) creativity goals inhibiting typical thoughts in favor of more atypical and unique ones; the extent to which people are persuaded or influenced by minority messengers: the cognitive economy which directs initial thoughts toward minorities and how motives which instigate more elaborate thought processes lead to greater minority influence. A motive termed "the need for structure" and how the desire to control and structure the events and people which make up one's social world affects the way in which one perceives and acts.
