update_attribute vs update_attributes

update_attribute method allows us to update a single attribute while bypassing the validations.

update_attributes method accepts a hash of attributes, and on success performs both the update and the save in one step (returning true to indicate that the save went through). Note that if any of the validations fail, the call to update_attributes will fail.
