Writer, music blogger, and all-around geek.
I'm a fan of the English language, both discussing it and using it to write about my other passions: off-beat music and Bioware games. I've got a separate blog for each of these fascinations because they don't combine as well as you might think.  I've got a dozen stories going and one of those novels that never seems to actually progress because...squirrel!
Bragging rights
I write, I blog, I listen to music, and I have a real job and a family, not necessarily in that order.
Procrastination; off-the-cuff music snobbery; learning one new thing every day, some of it useful.

... and I haven't heard Trump say anything about his non-USA source of many of the goods manufactured with his name. Not a very good 'leader.'

Of all the news I've seen in my feed, this is the only mention of these horrific events.  Why don't people consider this more worthy of reaction than some "shocking new technique" or "10 things you never knew about"?

What a bizarre story! I had no idea Colombia was experiencing a hippo epidemic.
The late drug baron had a herd of the animals, which are now out of control in Colombia. Just what do you do with 60 hippos?

Ooooh, so excited!  I bump into a fair amount of great music on NPR.  Sadly, I'm guessing individual tracks from World Cafe won't be part of this and I know the local show just before it won't.  Still, for interviews and album previews this will be great.
NPR audio embedding: NPR gives us 800,000 reasons to share NPR audio on your site

+NPR has made more than 800,000 pieces of audio available for you to embed on your site.

NPR embeds work like any other embed on the web:

1. Find a story or show or song you love. 

On, you'll now see an embed option nearly everywhere you're able to play audio. The option will say "embed" or show a "<>" icon (the Web's universal embed symbol).

2. Get the embed code. 

Click or tap the embed option, and you'll see a snippet of code. 

3. Copy it.

Copy and paste that snippet into the code of your blog post or elsewhere on the Web. NPR's player will appear when you publish.

Important note:

"You also now can expect embed-ability with almost all audio NPR publishes. For legal reasons, we can't offer embedding of our radio streams, and sometimes we'll need to withhold select NPR Music exclusives. But these exceptions should be few."

I'm helping a friend look into accepting credit card payments for membership and event registration for their non-profit. The cards would be exclusively processed via their web site, not in person at the events.

Does anyone have a recommendation for an inexpensive and simple processor for use on a WordPress site? Do Amazon, Google, and PayPal scream "unproffessional" or just "noob web design"?
