Students To Edit Wikipedia Articles Instead Of Term Papers

Many people have always wondered whether scientists and educators have any responsibility in making the Wikipedia articles as accurate as they are supposed to be. This is a fascinating idea, keeping in mind that the site is considered as a reliable place where people can get information and learn about anything in the world. More than 8000 individuals visit this site every second to learn, and when you Google something on the internet, the first result that comes out are from Wikipedia. This idea is also in the minds of many students in a program overseen by their professors, to edit and even create Wikipedia articles and abandon writing term papers. 

The clever program in the university is quite simple and genius at the same time. The students will be able to develop some writing skills and some critical thinking. On the other hand, the crowdsourced encyclopedia will get a booster in academic knowledge in order to fill in the gaps that professional Wikipedia writers may leave. This year, they plan to focus mainly on science; specifically, they want to write about women in science. 

There is an independent foundation that is nonprofit making called Wiki Education Foundation has been founded to shepherd the ongoing program, and it has been operating for more than 3 years. The Foundation is not linked to the Wikipedia foundation. There are about 200 schools that have incorporated the program to edit Wikipedia in their normal curriculum. Some of these schools include UC Berkeley, Duke, and Harvard among others. The students have managed to work on over 35000 essays on the site, and these have accumulated more than 78 million views. 

The project to be undertaken this year has been named, “Year of Science”, and it be to focus mainly on how to improve the way Wikipedia informs the public about science, and while at it, they will include women who have been under-represented on the site. There are very few women scientists that are written on the site, and the program intends to ensure that the female scientists have a Wikipedia page. 

Most of Wikipedia editors are male, and only a small percentage represents women. This has contributed to the few women pages in the site, and the students plan to get rid of this. If you want to write or make a Wikipedia page easily, you can contact Get Your Wiki, a company that has professional editors. Get Your Wiki ensures that all your pages are approved, and if not, they refund your money back.

Bruce Levenson, Serial Entrepreneur

His most notable business accomplishment was the founding of United Communications Group (UCG) with Ed Peskowitz in 1977. The dynamic duo bootstrapped the company to the truest sense of the word, beginning the company in Levenson’s apartment. It started out as a simple newsletter, Public Oil, which published up-to-date information on the happenings of the oil industry. After its early success the company began acquiring other newsletters and creating databases, including their first, Oil Price Information Service. Today the company provides data and insights to companies in the healthcare, mortgage, and technology sectors among others. Levenson and his partner were eventually inducted in to the Software and Information Industry Association’s Hall of Fame in 1997 for their work with the company.

Aside from this successful business venture Levenson has kept busy in several other sectors. One of the spinoffs from UCG is GasBuddy. GasBuddy is an app downloaded by more than 45 million users who use its information to find cheap gas stations while travelling. He also helped found and direct TechTarget, a now publicly-traded IT media company. Further increasing his diversity across sectors is his founding of DOT, a cooking technology that can toast bread in three seconds.

Even more impressive than Forbes billionaire Bruce Levenson’s business success has been his commitment to philanthropy. He has been very active in several Washington D.C. area foundations, including Hoop Dreams and Community Foundation of Washington D.C. He also served as president of his local I Have a Dream Foundation chapter. This organization works to promote higher education as an option for inner city youth. Continuing along with education, Levenson and his wife saw to the development of the University of Maryland’s Center for Leadership and Nonprofit Education.

Levenson is also very involved with a wide range of Jewish causes. He was a founding donor of the United States Holocaust Museum. Levenson took all of the Hawks staff and players there in 2014. He also supports Birthright Israel, an organization which allows young Jewish individuals to travel to Israel to learn more about their culture and to visit the Jewish State free of charge.

Most recently, Levenson was among 100 promiment Jewish individuals who sent a letter to the Israeli Prime Minister. The letter urged Netanyahu to work with John Kerry, and possibly be ready to make some territorial sacrifices in order to promote peace in the region.

How Beneful Dog Food Completely Changed The Lives Of My Awesome Dogs

Last year I felt like the worst dog owner in the world. My senior, female dog, Dakota, refused to eat anything that I placed in front of her, and my younger, male dog, Sammy, was overweight and on the brink of having a medical condition. Right before I almost gave up all hope and started to ponder allowing my sister, a wonderful dog owner who lives on a farm, to temporarily adopt my dogs to nurse them back to health, she recommended that I try changing their food to see if their conditions would get any better. Her solution sounded like it was too simple too be true. I kept questioning how changing the diet of my dogs could drastically reverse their health problems. However, the love for my sweet dogs trumped my doubts and I decided to take the small leap and invest in the dog food that she recommended – Beneful. I have seen this brand at my sisters house and in markets so I felt slightly comfortable with the product, but I still had to do my own wikipedia research so I would not get my hopes up too high. Upon doing my research, I learned that the Beneful product line includes gourmet products that contain fresh ingredients, such as beef, chicken and lamb opposed to the dog food brands that I fed my dogs which contained grains and corn. What was really amazing were the reviews that I read online about how good the Beneful products are; actually, I read on the daily herald that the manufacturing chief for Purina Beneful proved how delicious the brand was by tasting it in front of the writer of the article. Then I read on other review sites that some dog owners taste tested it also and the consensus was unanimous – Beneful brands are delicious to both humans and dogs. When I finally purchased a Beneful bag for Sammy and a special, senior Beneful brand for Dakota I was pleasantly surprised to notice that she ate all of her food on the first day and three months after feeding Sammy Beneful he lost weight and has sustained it ever since. Beneful has gained a new customer from me for life, and most important, my dogs have normal eating patterns and they seem to be really happy.
