The hour-long discussion will cover how to develop women leaders, create support systems for sustainable careers, and harness the power of self-awareness and self-validation.

As a distributed company with more than 800 employees in over 60 countries, Automattic sees inclusion and diversity as a constantly evolving idea. We know that diverse teams make better products, and we also know that there is always more work to do. We hope that attendees of this panel, across career stages, gender, and location, will leave with at least one new strategy for using their voice at work and uplifting the voices of others.

Free Domain Privacy Protection

Keeping your data safe is as important to us as it is to you. Privacy protection for domains that are registered at WordPress.com is now free, so you don’t have to choose between your site and your security.

What is domain privacy protection?

When you register a new domain, you have to provide personal contact information. This information is stored at WHOIS, a database containing the details of every registered domain.

In the past, WHOIS made this information publicly accessible unless you opted in to — and paid extra for — privacy protection. If you chose not to buy privacy protection (or couldn’t afford to), spammers and marketing firms could look up your domain and get access to your name, address, email, phone number, and other information about you or your business.

Privacy protection replaces this public information with generic data, so WHOIS gets the necessary details but keeps your personal info safe from prying internet eyes — but at a cost.

What’s changing?

In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect for EU citizens. It resulted in changes to WHOIS that, in many cases, prevent contact information from being publicly published whether or not someone purchases enhanced privacy for a domain.

We’re committed to protecting your data and believe online safety shouldn’t depend on where in the world you live, so from now on, every domain registered through WordPress.com also includes privacy protection at no extra charge.

How do I turn it on?

Head to My Site > Domains, pick a domain, and turn Privacy Protection on. If it’s blue, you’re all set. If not, toggle the setting to turn it on!

Un trocito de Alemania en Granada

Las sensaciones que te produce viajar a un país extranjero, saborear sus platos, sus olores, sus recuerdos a través de la comida, sus rincones…

Wursmet es un local food street, comida rápida de perritos calientes en Granada, acompañado de una gran variedad de cervezas para elegir, trasportandote a los largos paseos por las calles de Berlín, tomando una salchicha cocida y una buena cerveza de trigo por un coste no superior a 10 euros por persona.

Las hamburguesas también están muy logradas, el pan negro excepcional así como las patatas de boniato, a quien le guste ese toque dulce. Ahí os dejo unas fotos ya que una imagen vale más que mil palabras, por cierto, obviamente aconsejo el perrito de salchicha picante…

Para sentirse como en casa: Restaurante Envero

Si deseas estar como en casa,en familia y degustar comida a la brasa, carne a la brasa y a baja temperatura,verduras y vinos naturales de producción propia,tanto de José,el dueño,como de algunos productores de la zona,te recomiendo este restaurante…

El Envero se encuentra en Beas de Granada, mis platos preferidos son los cortes ibéricos (diferente tipos de carne a la brasa) y la costilla de ternera a baja temperatura, pero toda la comida que ofrece esta exquisita.

Además de la buena comida,ofrecen productos de la zona (queso de la queseria la Buchaca),paseos por la ruta de las trincheras de la guerra Civil, por el darro desde Granada a Beas,etc…

Tanto el cocinero,jefe y camareras forman una gran familia,a la que me siento unida,sobre todo al ponerle al rincón de la chimenea mi nombre…..Rincón de Raquel….

Announcing Newspack by WordPress.com — A New Publishing Solution for News Organizations

Over the past 15 years, WordPress has grown to become the world’s most popular publishing platform for the open web — and it’s especially true for news organizations. Through WordPress.com and our enterprise service WordPress.com VIP, we’re proud to host sites for some of the most trusted names in journalism — from Time.com and CNN to FiveThirtyEight and Quartz, as well as individual sites for reporters and bloggers all around the globe.

Today we’re excited to announce funding for a new platform, Newspack by WordPress.com, aimed at small- and medium-sized news organizations. Google, through the Google News Initiative, is taking the lead in backing the project and has committed $1.2 million. Other funders include The Lenfest Institute for Journalism, which is contributing $400,000; ConsenSys, the venture studio backing Civil Media, which is contributing $350,000; and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which is contributing $250,000. An additional $200,000 from a fifth source is expected to be contributed toward the project later this month.

News organizations interested in being part of the pilot launch can go to newspack.blog to learn more.

With many local news organizations struggling to find sustainable models for journalism, we’re seeing a need for an inexpensive platform that provides the technology and support that lets news organizations build their businesses and focus on what they do best — providing critical reporting for their communities. Our hope with Newspack is to give them a platform where they can continue to focus on what they do best, while we focus on providing world-class technology and support across their editorial and business operations.

In addition to WordPress.com parent Automattic, partners in the project include Spirited Media, which operates local digital news sites in Denver, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, and News Revenue Hub, a spinoff of Voice of San Diego, which provides revWenue solutions for digital publishers.
