I’ve just released version 1.8 of both Keyring, and the Keyring Social Importers. This version includes a new service file, and an accompanying importer, which allows you to import content from a Jetpack-powered WordPress site, using the WordPress.com REST API. That means any site hosted on WordPress.com, or any self-hosted site with the Jetpack plugin installed. There are also a few key fixes for the Twitter and LinkedIn services/importers, so it’s a nice update.
The new importer will pull across the entire content of posts, including tags. Similar to the Instapaper importer, it attempts to avoid duplicate content issues by marking pages as
noindex if they come from imported content.
This is another piece of the puzzle required for me to create a complete archive of my digital footprints over on Dented Reality, now that I’m blogging here. This post should be imported over there automatically within an hour.
Note that currently the importer doesn’t sideload any media items (will add that soon) or support geo data (again, I’ll add that when I get a chance).
Check it out, and please use responsibly!
news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/olympics/swimming/7549701.stm">Michael Phelps’ historic performance</a> at the Beijing Olympics of 2008, the question on everyone’s mind is “what happeend to humans competing against humans?” Beating out the Gladiatorially-named <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/15/sports/othersports/15runner.html">Oscar Pistorius</a> as the first hyper-human athlete to compete in the so called “games”, Phelps officially marks the beginning of a spiral into artificially modified “humans” performing for crowds of unengineered, imperfect pure-bloods such as you and I.</p> <p>The <a href="http://www.olympic.org/uk/index_uk.asp">IOC</a> officially barred Pistorius from competing in the Olympics due to the modified lower-legs he competes upon, a requirement due to the fact that his God-given limbs were amputated at the age of 11 months. Using a variety of thinly-veiled excuses such as “[t]he rule book says a foot has to be in contact with the starting block” and “we cannot accept something that provides advantages”, the IOC on one hand denies a man with no legs, while on the other they allow the juggernaut American swimming team to suit up in <a href="http://www.speedo80.com/lzr-racer/">specially-engineered “super suits”</a> to improve their own performance. The real controversy however, is not what we see at first glance, but the startling facts of the reality that is Michael Phelps.</p> <p>As explained in <em><a href="http://www.ndtv.com/convergence/ndtv/showsports.aspx?id=SPOEN20080061934&ch=8/17/2008%209:04:00%20PM">Phelps’ body, the secret of success</a>, </em>we are talking about no ordinary 23-year-old man. Indeed, depending on how it is judged, we man not be talking about a man at all. The laundry list of evidence of Phelps’ super-human physique and biological make-up is impressive:</p> <ul> <li>He measures in at 6’4″ and 195 pounds, with “<span id="lblStory">a long, thin torso”,</span></li> <li><span id="lblStory">His “wingspan” is a full 3 inches longer than </span><span id="lblStory">for a </span><span id="lblStory">normal man his height, with “</span><span id="lblStory">his arms work[ing] as powerful propulsive paddles”,</span></li> <li><span id="lblStory">He “</span><span id="lblStory">has an upper body of a 6’8″ person but his lower body seems to be of someone who is only 5″10″, which also make[s] the perfect plane in water”,</span></li> <li><span id="lblStory">He was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, giving him more energy to channel into training, while<br /> </span></li> <li><span id="lblStory">“</span><span id="lblStory">His unique constitution also produces less lactic acid than others which means Phelps takes less time to recover”.</span></li> <li><span id="lblStory">As if that wasn’t bad enough, his size 14 feet are attached to double-jointed ankles, allowing him to motor through the water as if equipped with custom propellers.</span></li> </ul> <p>And what, you may ask, is the scientific probability of a single person coming together with all of these traits <strong>and </strong>being pushed into swimming at a young enough age to hit peak physical performance right when the US needed a hero? Precisely a bazillion to none. That is, however unless you accept that Phelps was clearly either genetically engineered, or selectively bred for precisely this reason.</p> <p>While Phelps’ birth mother was everywhere to be seen at the Olympics, decidedly absent was a father of any kind. The publicity nightmare that would have ensued had all of his fathers been there was obviously something Team USA chose to avoid. To breed a specimen such as Phelps, it is likely that at least 3 different fathers were involved, splicing their DNA together and fertilizing a single egg to create the real “Aqua Man”.</p> " data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-440" src="https://i0.wp.com/beau.blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Screen-Shot-2017-04-15-at-5.03.43-PM.png?resize=791%2C105&ssl=1" alt="Screen Shot 2017-04-15 at 5.03.43 PM" />
