Need help figuring out this code block...

Are you trying to output a hash (as text)?

I believe so yes, so that way I can get all of the records from the same
date into one has so I can iterate through that.

Err... I'm not sure I fully understand what you're trying to
accomplish. I'll throw out an idea and maybe that will help.

@projects.inject(activities = []){|activities, project|
activities.push project.activities.find(:all, :conditions=>["win_at

= ?", Date.today])}

@current_activities = activities.flatten.group_by{|activity|
activity.win_at}.sort

The first line uses a find to make sure that you're dealing with an
actual array of activities (rather than an association proxy that
looks like one) and the dates you're dealing with lie in the
appropriate date range (modify as you need, obviously).

The second line is doing several things. The first line returns an
array of arrays, so the call to flatten makes this one big array.
Next, group_by iterates over the array and builds a hash, with the
hash key being the results of the block; in this case you'll have a
key that looks like a nicely formatted date. Finally, the call to
sort *should* cause the hash to be recast as an array and then sorted
by the keys (dates).

In the end, you should end up with @current_activities being an array
sorted in ascending date order. Each entry of @current_activities is
an array with the first element being the date and the last element
being an array of activities.

Over in your view, you can render this out somehow (not sure how you
have your calendar set up) but just as an idea...

...
<% @current_activities.each do |activity_set| %>
  <h2> <%= activity_set.first.strftime("%B %d, %Y") %></h2>
  <ul>
  <% activity_set.last.each do |activity| %>
    <li> <%= h activity.teaser %> </li>
  <% end %>
  </ul>
<% end %>

HTH,
