How a Student is Dealing With Wikipedia’s Gender Imbalance

Wikipedia has now been in existence for more than 15 years. It is shocking that men dominates its more than 27 million editors. Actually, men represents over 90% of Wikipedia’s registered editors. That is the realization of Emily Temple-Wood, who is a student at Loyola University, Chicago studying biology. 

Emily Temple-Wood, who is now 21, has been a Wikipedia editor and writer ever since she was 12. She has been receiving abusive messages some sexist and sexually inappropriate since that time. She used to ignore them but in 2012, she had an idea. For every inappropriate message that is targeted on her, she adds an article about a female scientist to the site. She has been doing this since 2012 and she has been able to promote the recognition of women on Wikipedia. She has made some scientists from 18th Century who were not known by Wikipedia users to be known. The idea is called WikiProject Women Scientists now with a Wikipedia page of its own.

A New Age for Securus

Everyone has a cell phone or some type of mobile device with wifi connection it seems like. My MP3 player, for example, has two cameras and internet access, but my cell phone doesn’t. It’s an old MP3 player, hardly compatible with the updates on the only app I use. However, if I ever upgrade, the next app I’m getting would strike some as strange.

Securus is a company that specializes in visitations for inmates. Why a company like this exists never hits you until you have a loved one or a friend in jail. Anyway, they help people visit their loved ones in jail. They do this by helping their customers set up either an in-person visit (IE a visit to the jail where their loved one is) or a video visitation.

In February 2016, Securus launched a new app. Within a week of the launch, Apple users have downloaded it over 5,000 times. Within a month of the Android launch, it was downloaded over 60,000 times. While Apple is usually preferred over Android, the Android success is amazing. If the Apple downloads keep up at this pace, they will soon overpower the number of downloads on the Android devices.

This app, however, has one very cool feature. The app will turn the mobile device into a kiosk for making video visitations. The user simply logs on and finds either a strong wifi or cell signal. Then, they can make a video inmate phone call. Download the Google Play app here >>

Another feature of the app is the ability to sync calendars. A user’s account online will have the dates of every appointment they have currently booked – whether it’s one or three. It can be difficult to add all of them to the calendar on a mobile calendar by hand. The app will simply add the appointment dates and times to the mobile calendar with the push of a button.

I know I will be enjoying these two features of the Securus app if I upgrade my MP3 player to a newer model. As video visitations become more and more common, it’ll be helpful to have this app on any device.

George Soros Partners With Other Individuals To Get Latino Voters

 George Soros is a famous billionaire and the founder of several companies in America. He is the owner of the Soros Foundation, among many other companies. He was born in Hungary, but due to some reasons, he migrated and settled temporarily in London. His stay in London was short-lived. He moved to the United States of America, and through hard work, he managed to start a powerful emperor. He is very wealthy, and he has a special place in the society. His opinion in most of the issues in the whole world is not taken for granted. He is a great philanthropist too who has helped many people. He is the founder of a charitable organization known as Open Society that has spread in almost all parts of the world. The foundation helps individuals all over the world regardless of the race and gender. He first supported the African students living in Africa during the apartheid, and since then, the billionaire has never looked back.

George Soros is also involved in political activities in the United States. The billionaire has always been involved in the politics of the country for many years, endorsing and funding the candidates he believes will benefit the community. America will be soon going into elections this year, and as usual, the billionaire is equally involved in the politics. This year, Soros has come together with other millionaires to raise money in order to mobilize the immigrants in America to participate in the upcoming general elections. The billionaire wants the Latinos and every other immigrant to fall into his party, and he hopes that they will help in getting votes for Donald Trump and other republics so that the Democrats can win in the November general elections. The billionaire hopes to raise over fifteen million dollars together with his partners.

According to New York Times experts in the political industry, this will be the largest spending done on the Latinos and other immigrants to pursue them into voting. This money will mostly be used by several organizations in Florida, Colorado, and Nevada. These are all the states in America that have a large population of the Latinos and other immigrants. Using these votes, the Democrats will be able to win in the upcoming general elections.

George Soros has been very influential in American politics this year. This will not be the only donation he will be giving out for the upcoming elections. In the past, George Soros had also given out a very generous amount to support Hillary Clinton in her bid to become the next president of the United States. He is also knowledgeable in an economic and social matter affecting the globe. He recently warned that the energy industry will go down, and it seems he was right.

Chinese Economic Problems Cause Concern For George Soros

Legendary hedge fund manager George Soros has recently been discussing his concerns for the future of the global markets in an interview at an economic forum in Sri Lanka. Bloomberg has reported Soros expressed his concerns for the future of the global economy as he believes the current situation is shifting to echo that of 2008, which saw a global downturn still impacting the markets of the world to the present day. The problems of the global economy are largely being caused by the instability of the Chinese economy, but also by other factors across the U.S., Europe, and Japan that continue to cause issues within the global economy.

Soros has played an important role in the global economy over recent years, and is often cited as the financial expert responsible for the devaluation of the British Pound in 1992. Over the course of his career Soros has tried to give something back to the people of the world through his Open Society Foundations, which he uses to try and bring the ideology of democracy to people living in closed societies. CNBC have recently reported the Open Society Foundations have been barred from working within Russia as the ideology being promoted does not fit into that promoted by President Vladimir Putin.

The major problems facing the global economy can be seen in the volatility in the financial markets of the world over recent months, which include those spotted by Soros in the Chinese markets. During the last decade of the 20th century and the start of the 21st century China forced itself into a position of power across the financial markets through its market based upon investment and manufacturing. George Soros believes the markets and entire economy in China are now changing towards a consumption and service based model, which the country is struggling to cope with. George Soros used the economic forum in Sri Lanka to explain his view that Chinese officials must evolve a new way of addressing the economy to halt the problems seen with the struggling Yuan.
