For example, the "featured events" block can be used to display events that are both "featured" and "public". The "buzz" blocks can be used to display buzz items for all ensembles, or using the buzz for one ensemble block will display only the buzz for the ensemble page that it's on.
They have their own section in these guides as they aren't strictly "content".
