Ardi Hundt | Its about web development and Drupal


A while back I wrote the Part I of how we built the Estonian Government web platform. I had all the intentions to quickly follow that up with Part 2 and 3, but as always, things got busy. The good news is, however, that all the sites are now live for several months and I can use live examples to illustrate my text here.

Part II is about some of the functionality we built and the technical solutions used for it. The development phase lasted throughout the second half of 2013 and first months of 2014 – 7 months of development means a lot of different stuff was built. Instead of trying to cover it all, I will try to focus on the parts that I feel characterize this project the best.

The Chargers announced Sunday the contract extension of cornerback Casey Hayward.

While you’re asking questions about “what went wrong” last year, here are some things you may want to read up on, since you clearly missed out on past events: The Atkins diet, “The Dark Knight,” Furby dolls and the Harry Potter series.

Nicknamed the “Throwin’ Swannanoan,” Stewart played a key role in the Orioles’ last World Series championship in 1983, pitching five scoreless innings in the series. In all, Stewart pitched 12 scoreless postseason innings between 1979 and 1983.

The right-hander finished his career with a season apiece in Boston and Cleveland. He retired after the 1987 season with a mark of 59-48 and a 3.59 ERA.

After his career, however, Stewart ran into trouble. According to the Baltimore Sun, he started using crack cocaine shortly after he retired, and ended up serving almost seven years in a North Carolina prison. But Stewart turned his life around after his release in early 2013.

In 2016, Stewart joined the Orioles broadcast to talk about his career.

If Witten is interested, he?would join former Cowboys quarterbacks Tony Romo (CBS) and Troy Aikman (Fox) behind the microphone on NFL game telecasts this season. The list of former Cowboys stars who’ve moved from America’s Team to the?booth is impressive, starting with “Dandy” Don Meredith on?”MNF” with Howard Cosell and Keith Jackson/Frank Gifford.

Executives from Fox are intrigued by the possibility the popular, square-jawed Witten could replicate the rookie TV success of Romo, his close friend and former road roommate. He’d?have the advantage, like Romo and Aikman, of broadcasting to a built-in,?national fan base that loves the Cowboys.?

But persuading?Witten, who’s coming off a Pro Bowl season,?won’t be easy. After the Cowboys’ regular-season finale,he told the Dallas Morning News he plans to play again in 2018 for what would be his 16th season.

NBA trade rumors: Cavaliers, Kings still working on deal for George Hill

Posted on by

George Hill isn’t thrilled with his situation in Sacramento and the Cavaliers are in the midst of a tense losing streak. Something needs to change for each party and it appears Cleveland is trying to address their problems with the addition of Hill.

Following nearly a decade as a player, Griffin has served as an assistant coach in Milwaukee, Chicago, Orlando and currently Oklahoma City. He has a habit of building relationships with those around him. He’s a guy who has made an impact at every stop but doesn’t need to take credit for individual or team success. Griffin is also a defensive-minded coach, having spent time under Tom Thibodeau with the Bulls, and that’s absolutely something the Bucks could use, as they own the sixth-worst defensive rating in the NBA.

Boylen has been coaching for more than three decades now, starting back in 1987 as an assistant with Michigan State and currently serving as the associate head coach for the Bulls. Boylen knows what it takes to win, having been part of title teams with both the Rockets in 1994 and 1995 and the Spurs in 2014. The young Bucks could use some championship experience.

James’ eight triple-doubles are already his second-most in a season in his 15-year career. It’s also the most he’s ever had before the All-Star break. James’ career high for triple-doubles is 13, done last season.

Kevin Love, who was singled out as a target by players in the locker room, scored 10 points with 13 rebounds in 33 minutes. Love has already said he will not ask for a trade, and coach Tyronn Lue remained faithful to his forward by keeping him in the starting lineup amid the shakeup.

All-Star Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 25 points, seven assists and six rebounds. He has scored at least 20 points in all but four games this month.

The Cavs entered the game losers in six of seven games, but they got back on track to remain third in the Eastern Conference standings, six games behind the Celtics.lions_017

Matthew Dellavedova injury update: Bucks G sidelined 3-4 weeks

Posted on by

The Bucks will have to continue the rest of their road trip without Matthew Dellavedova.

The guard injured his right ankle in Sunday’s win over the Nets in Brooklyn and left the team Monday to return to Milwaukee for further evaluation.

Out of the four players the Cavs acquired at the trade deadline, Clarkson might be in for the toughest adjustment because he’s used to having the ball in his hands. (Clarkson had the highest usage rate on the Lakers this season at 27.5 percent. For context, that’s as high as Kemba Walker’s and Mike Conley’s usage rate). The Cavs will give him opportunities to run the show as the leader of the second unit, but he’ll have to sacrifice some touches if he’s going to survive next to James.

Tomorrow there’ll be more of us, telling the story of tonight the Heights!RT Massie.Abdullah be a boom-or-bust option, while ‘s consistency be more valuable on a week-to-week basis.

Although he is reportedly making solid progress his rehab, it is a gruesome injury which at the very least alter ‘s career arc.The addition of Griffin could mean that Andrew Sendejo, who was re-signed to a four-year deal on Saturday, shifts to a backup role.That took a lot of criticism for no reason for a year and a half, Strief said.I remember my early days with the Canadian Press I did more than just hockey; I did whatever was asked of me, and I happened to be covering the Blue Jays one year believe it or not.

Clippard was 2-8 with a 4.77 ERA in 76 games last season with the New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros, who did not put him on any of their postseason rosters. He is 34-24 with a 3.11 ERA in 11 major league seasons.

His contract was announced Wednesday.

Jackson last played baseball on Aug. 10, 1994, with the Angels. He got two hits and stole a base against the Royals in that final game — the same week, MLB players went on strike and the season was lost.

Jackson’s career was shortened after he was injured in January 1991 in a playoff game for the Raiders. The setback required hip replacement surgery.

“Most of these players probably weren’t even born when I played or they were babies,” Jackson said.

But they likely know the aura of Bo Knows, his popular ad campaign.

“I hope so,” he said.

Jackson plans on mingling with minor league players.raiders_010-223x223

NFLPA health playbook puts concussions in focus

Posted on by

The NFL Players Association has created a medical guide for players, a 107-page reference book written by scientific professionals with extensive material on concussion detection, treatment and the league’s game-day protocol for head injuries.

The union’s inaugural health playbook was distributed electronically to NFLPA members this week.

The Dolphins simply do not have money to spend. They will enter the new league year $8.6 million over the salary cap after placing the franchise tag on wide receiver Jarvis Landry. Miami needs help at linebacker and along the offensive line, but will need to cut players to open up some cap room. Tight end Julius Thomas and linebacker Lawrence Timmons are reportedly on the chopping block.

Most likely to be played by Reese Witherspoon in a rom com: Pat Shurmur, Giants
You gave this a go once before. You were young and tried to make it work with the biggest loser in the NFL. But it’s five years later. You’ve matured. You’ve gained valuable life and career experience. You’re a success — and you’re ready to try this again. In the big city, too!

It won’t be easy. Not with an aging quarterback and a roster that’s always primed to bring the D-R-A-M-A. And OK, maybe everyone is already questioning the moves you’re making.

Wilson is small (5-8, 200 pounds), but his quickness played well off Tyreek Hill’s speed when called upon in Kansas City. He has little mileage after being underutilized by the Chiefs. He could be a bargain signing following Matt Nagy to the Bears.

Fournier said Magic players in a late-game huddle stressed the need to keep up the defensive effort.

“We were kind of like, OK, not again,” Fournier. “That kind of changed the momentum. We went into overtime knowing we were going to execute and play good defense and we did.”

The Magic could have won it in regulation. Fournier drilled a 3-pointer that gave Orlando a 104-102 lead with 47 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

The Pistons tied it when Griffin got a long rebound and found Ennis for a breakaway dunk that tied the game at 104 with seven seconds left.patriots_036

Listen to Nick Foles ask Doug Pederson to call that reverse TD pass in the Super Bowl

Posted on by

It was Nick Foles, not head coach Doug Pederson, who first suggested the Eagles run a trick play to score the most memorable touchdown of Super Bowl 52. We know that because Showtime’s microphones caught the deliberations between Foles and his coach before the play:

“We’re going for it right here,” Pederson says as the Eagles face fourth-and-goal from the Patriots 1-yard line late in the second quarter.

“Philly, Philly?” Foles asks his coach.

Despite Carruth’s claims in his letter and interview that he has reached out to Adams, she responded that she has never received anything from him and that she has some reservations about his letter.

“But I do welcome a conversation with him,” Adams said. “He can have some supervised visitation with his son — I am open to that. I have mixed feelings about him breaking his silence. In some ways, he sounds more mature than he did. I’m glad to hear of the repentance and of his relationship with God. But what I’m also hearing is some of the same old self-centered Rae.”

Carruth’s full, 15-page letter can be viewed here.

The problem is this: That message wasn’t from Yee. It was from Nick in Boston, a loyal WEEI listener. WEEI’s Kirk & Callahan shared the text exchange:

“Somebody tweeted Ron Borges’ phone number, and I just picked it up and for some reason I just thought, ‘Hey, I’ll text him and say I’m Don Yee.’ And he just went with it for some reason,” Nick in Boston said, via Pro Football Talk. “Here’s the funny part. Well, it’s all funny but here’s the funnier part: He tried to call me three times and I just didn’t answer. But then I was just like, whatever, screw it, I’ll just call him and he’s gonna know it’s not Don Yee. But I called him and I was just like, ‘Hey, Ronnie, it’s Don.’”

Borges ran with the story, which quickly spread far and wide. That didn’t last long. The Herald pulled it, and sports editor Sean Leahy told Pro Football Talk that the paper is “looking into it.”jays_880_dfa283b0ed84f498-180x180

Marty Hurney reinstated as Panthers GM as NFL finds no evidence of harassment

Posted on by

Panthers interim GM Marty Hurney was reinstated to his position Friday, after the NFL informed the team it found no evidence that he violated the league’s personal conduct policy, the Panthers reported on their website.

The allegations against Hurney being essentially put to rest comes as a relief to the Panthers community, whose team was put up for sale by owner Jerry Richardson after sexual harassment allegations against him surfaced in December.

When Harbaugh went to Michigan, he made two moves to ensure this wouldn’t be an issue, taking transfers from O’Korn (Houston) and Jake Rudock (Iowa). Rudock had a strong 2015. O’Korn became a backup as Wilton Speight took the reins from Rudock. What Harbaugh didn’t secure was enough tackles to guarantee pass protection, and so despite a 6’6, 230-pound frame, Speight incurred injuries in both 2016 and in 2017.

Down late in the third period, Patrick Maroon appeared to have tied the game for Edmonton. The Coyotes, however, used their coach’s challenge to reverse the ruling, keeping the Oilers off the scoreboard due to goaltender interference.

The game will take place on Thursday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m. ET at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. Traditionally it was held on a Sunday, but that was changed starting in 2017.

Blaine Gabbert looked like a real quarterback, the Cowboys got creative with their playcalling, and Zeke Elliott ate his beard — really.

The Hall of Fame game allows both teams to start training camp early, which could be a benefit to new Bears head coach Matt Nagy.

It should be a good weekend for both teams involved, as they get an early start to the 2018 season while honoring two of the best players their franchises have ever seen.

I’m uncomfortable in public restrooms; blame my mother. One time at a Social Distortion concert in at the Ogden Theatre in Denver it took me almost 20 minutes to relieve myself in a trough, and I really had to go. I can count on one hand the number of times I’m number two’d in a restaurant, gas station, etc. It’s kept me away from sporting events too.bears_093-223x223

Warriors planning 2018 preseason game versus Kings in Seattle

Posted on by

The Golden State Warriors plan to host the first NBA game in Seattle since the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City following the 2007-08 season, sources told ESPN.

While the Portland Trail Blazers held an open scrimmage in 2010 at Seattle’s Garfield High School, the alma mater of then-star Brandon Roy, the last official NBA game in Seattle was the Sonics’ final home game on April 13, 2008.

In 2013, the NBA board of governors voted against a proposal for an investment group led by Chris Hansen to purchase the Kings and move them to Seattle. Instead, the team was sold to a group headed by Vivek Ranadive that oversaw the construction of a new downtown arena in Sacramento.

The city of Seattle recently approved a proposal by the Oak View Group to rebuild KeyArena, the Sonics’ home before their move, into a larger venue capable of hosting NBA and NHL teams. Because the rebuild is scheduled to begin in October, the preseason game would potentially have to be played at a different location in Seattle.

“Hopefully pretty soon,” Millsap told reporters, according to the Denver Post. “It feels good now. We’ll see how it feels in the morning or after [Thursday’s] practice, and we’ll go from there. My intention was to come right back after the All-Star break and get into it, but we have to be smart about it. This was my first practice today, full contact, and I have to be smart about my wrist and my body.”

The Nuggets signed Millsap this past offseason, giving the former All-Star a three-year, $90 million deal. He averaged 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists before the wrist injury sidelined him after a Nov. 19 game.

Denver has played well without him, holding the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a 32-26 record coming out of the All-Star break. That success without Millsap affords coach Michael Malone the chance to ease Millsap back into the rotation, whenever he’s cleared to play.

“It’s a big gut-check and a big win for us,” Middleton said. “This is the best team in the East and we proved that we could beat them on the road.”

DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points for the Raptors, who had won five straight home games against the Bucks, and 15 of the past 17 meetings.

Toronto also eliminated Milwaukee in the opening round of last year’s playoffs. The teams will not meet again in the regular season.

Serge Ibaka had 18 points, and Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam each scored 17 for Toronto.jaguars_015-223x223

Matt is driven to succeed, has extreme passion for the game and excels in preparation.

Posted on by

“When we launched the search for our next head coach, I wanted to find a leader that could take us to the next level and I am confident we have found that in Matt Patricia. He has been preparing for this opportunity his entire career, and he’s ready for the responsibility and its challenges,” general manager Bob Quinn said.

“Matt is driven to succeed, has extreme passion for the game and excels in preparation. He embodies the same hard-working, blue-collar attributes that represent our organization and the great City of Detroit.”

During the past six seasons, he has served as the team’s defensive coordinator. During that span, the Patriots rank second in points allowed (19.2) and an NFL-best plus-71 turnover differential.

Patricia will replace Jim Caldwell, who was fired Jan. 1 after four seasons. During that time, he posted a 36-28 mark and failed to win a playoff game in the two years the team made it to the postseason.

The 65,000-seat stadium that can expand to seat 75,000 hosted it’s first NFL game in 1998. And of course, like Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida, it too recently went through a renovation project.

Raymond James Stadium now boasts what its website calls the most advanced HD video system in use today. With two 9,600 square-foot boards (north and south ends of the stadium) and four 2,300 square-foot HD tower walls, it ranks as the third-largest video board system in the NFL.

The new sound system has 400-plus speakers throughout the stadium, providing 750,000 watts of power.

NFL rules require a stadium to have been open two full seasons before it can host a Super Bowl, so a change needed to be made when construction delays meant the Rams and Chargers wouldn’t be able to play in their new stadium until 2020.patriots_301_205870d5d034964b-180x180
