Hong Kong's human battery hens: Claustrophobic images show how slum families squeeze their lives into the tiniest apartments Bird's-eye images released by social group documenting plight of poorest in one of world's richest citiesGroup's director: 'Lurking beneath this prosperity is great inequality and a forgotten group of poor people' With a land mass of 1,104sq km and a population of 7 million, it is also one of the most densely populated By Simon Tomlinson Published: 11:21 GMT, 22 February 2013 | Updated: 13:39 GMT, 22 February 2013 They are barely bigger than a toilet cubicle.

Those unfortunate enough to live in these urban slums range from the elderly and unemployed to low-income families and singletons.

If 'emigrants' is selected, then the population bubbles will appear over countries of destination for the emigrant population, sized according to the estimated emigrant population in each country.

Backup and Development with Installatron It’s no secret that we love WordPress here at ProfHacker. It powers this blog, and many of us use it for our own personal, professional, and/or course sites. As with anything else digital, it’s important to back up your WordPress installation, and to check those backups regularly. We’ve also noted that, when making significant changes to your site, it’s good practice to work in a development environment, rather than on a live site. So we’ve also covered how to set up a development environment on your computer. The ability to manage one’s own backups either manually or with a plugin, and to set up and maintain a local development environment, are good skills to have. Blog » Blog Archive » A Unified Zotero Experience Since the introduction of Zotero Standalone in 2011, Zotero users have had two versions to choose from: the original Firefox extension, Zotero for Firefox, which provides deep integration into the Firefox user interface, and Zotero Standalone, which runs as a separate program and can be used with any browser. Starting with the release of Zotero 5.0, Zotero for Firefox and Zotero Standalone have been replaced by a single standalone application for users of all browsers. A new Zotero Connector for Firefox, similar to the extensions available for Chrome and Safari, allows saving to the Zotero application or zotero.org in a single click. If you’re using Zotero for Firefox, you’ll soon be upgraded to the new Zotero Connector for Firefox, which provides the same “Save to Zotero” button in the Firefox toolbar that you’re used to. You’ll then need to install the standalone Zotero application to access your data. Why is this happening?

Through Another’s Eyes: Troubleshooting with User Switching Last week, I introduced readers to Installatron, a tool that’s very useful for backing up and cloning WordPress installations. This week’s post continues the WordPress thread. Many of us who use WordPress use it for maintaining a personal website and/or a professional portfolio; we’re the only users registered on our sites. Others, however, use WordPress for course sites to which they invite students to contribute, or maintain a Multisite installation. They may have a lot of users. Adminsistrators will need to set user roles appropriately, but once that’s done, users can take care of such things as resetting their own password should they forget it.
