Wikipedia is bogged down by bureaucracy


Wikipedia is a commonly cited source of information. Everyone appreciates having a one-stop shop to get the information they need. While people love Wikipedia, it is fallible. A recent study found that Wikipedia has a deeply embedded bureaucracy that makes updating information on the site almost impossible.

A recent article in Science Alert revealed that Wikipedia has an embedded group of bureaucrats that control everything. At one time, Wikipedia was an extremely democratic organization. Every person once held the same amount of influence on the site, but over the course of the last decade, an oligarchy has formed. There are around 30,000 regular editors on Wikipedia, but the core rules and edits are all decided by 100 key users. These users dominate the internal bureaucracy of Wikipedia, developing rules like “Be Neutral” and “verify everything”. This leadership class has an incredible impact on the website.

Many researchers now believe that Wikipedia’s leadership class is actually inhibiting the growth of the website and discouraging people to make a Wikipedia article. Wikipedia has seen a decline in membership for the last several years, and this slowdown should continue for years to come. If Wikipedia cannot find a way to reorganize, then they are in real trouble for years to come.

Wikipedia editors and their expansive bureaucracy can be extremely hard to navigate, making it impossible for many businesses to keep their Wikipedia pages up to date. Fortunately, there are several sites that specialize in writing and Wikipedia pages. The best Wikipedia revision service on the market today is probably Get Your Wiki. Get Your Wiki is a specialized service that businesses can hire to keep their Wikipedia pages in top notch shape.

Get Your Wiki is an incredibly powerful company. They understand the ins and outs of Wikipedia’s system so when they make a post it stays up for years to come. Get Your Wiki employs a team of Wikipedia editors in several different fields. These experts ensure that every single post is well researched and that the articles are cited. A well-researched Wikipedia page that puts a slightly positive spin on your business can be a boon for any company, and Get Your Wiki seeks to ensure that every business they hire has an incredibly impressive Wikipedia page.

Wikipedia has a huge influence on the way people think, but Wikipedia has become bogged down in an oppressive bureaucracy that discourages people to make a new Wiki page. This bureaucracy is difficult to navigate, but Get Your Wiki makes it easy to keep your page updated.

Wen By Chaz Really Does Work

I know everything there is to know about hair. I love it that much. I probably should have been a cosmetologist growing up because I was the little girl who used to obsessively wash her barbie doll’s hair, straighten it and then put rollers in it. You would almost think I had my own barbie salon the way I was so invested in the hair of my dolls. As I’ve gotten older I have become equally obsessed with my own hair and the hair of my friend’s and family. I can see color when no one else can and I am always willing to share suggestions on what I think one should do to make their that much greater. I guess that’s just how I am wired.
Recently I stumbled across an article in Bustle about a beauty blogger who was as equally obsessed with hair as I was and decided to take the Wen By Chaz Dean challenge ( For a little more than a week she used only the sephora fig version of Wen By Chaz on her fine hair and to her surprise the product helped bring her hair to life. She did admit she didn’t follow the Wen By Chaz directions to a tee but she did a darn good job with the direcions she followed.


Panelists Including Wasseem Boraie Highlight the Value of Residential Projects in Newark

Panelists in a recent Newark CRE Summit noted that multiple residential projects were of value than a single project. Real estate leaders at the summit agreed that the city’s renaissance had a better chance with several projects. The Newark CRE Summit is an event that highlights economic development within the largest city in the state. Addressing a panel focused on investment opportunities, a team of industry insiders noted that Newark eventually had what it had been missing. That is simultaneous projects that create a market and offer options to potential residents.

Wasseem Boraie noted that the city had nearly 10 “Class A projects” under development consisting thousands of units. He is the executive vice president of Boraie Development LLC. According to him, it is a turnaround from the past when city officials stuck to the view that a single major project would unleash Newark’s full potential. Additionally, Boraie noted that residential consumers will not be attracted to the city because of one project. His firm is constructing a 168 unit residential apartment building on Rector Street. Boraie also said that the administration had made a correct decision by offering choices. He added that the model had worked in other cities like New Brunswick and Jersey City.

However, panelists also noted that completing the projects was not easy. According to Richard Tucker, the projects take time. Tucker is the CEO of Tucker Development Corp., that has finished and ongoing projects within the city with a total value of $130 million. The projects were actualized through a combination of private capital, subsidies from the city and state level, and traditional debt. Tucker’s firm plans to open its Springfield Avenue Marketplace development in the city.

The panel discussion was moderated by David Wolfe of Skoloff & Wolfe P.C. He was part of the daylong initiative organized by CapRate Events. The occasion attracted a large number of real estate leaders to the Newark Club.

The Woes of Larger Sizes and How Retailers are Responding

Being larger can come with a few disadvantages. Among the disadvantages is that it can be harder for a larger woman to buy clothes. In fact, a lot of clothing companies have a size cut off for both men and women. While there are plus sized stores and big and tall men’s stores on, there does still seem to be a limit on the styles that women can have. Fortunately, there are some of the more stylish companies that are working towards making it easier for plus sized women to not only buy clothes, but to buy really elegant pieces of clothing.

Make learning a win, win, win with Class Dojo

In this day and age we all like to stay connected to our kids and what they are doing in school. Long gone are the days of the annual or bi-annual parent-teacher conference that allows parents to finally gain some insight as to what is being done (or not done) in the classroom. While many teachers are busily trying to maintain a class website, others have found that using an online communication platform to be much more effective in informing parents and students about what is going on in class. Class Dojo has created an online community that allows teachers, parents and students to effectively and instantly connect with each other.

Parents like Class Dojo since it allows them to be continually informed about what is taking place in the classroom. Not only are parents able to keep track of their own student’s academic progress but they are constantly updated about what is being studied in the classroom. Having up-to-date information about a teacher’s curriculum makes the job of helping our kids complete assignments and projects at home much easier!

Utilizing a platform like Class Dojo also allows parents stay more organized and feel like they are “in the loop.” Far too often paper notices are sent home with a student only to never be seen by the parent – or found in a crumpled ball after the fact. Every parent wants to plan important dates in advance and this online tool allows them to do exactly that.

While parents like the ease in in which they can receive communications, teachers like how Class Dojo makes it easy to communicate. Teachers can spend countless hours grading student work, developing engaging lesson plans or working with students. Being able to deliver important information to parents at students with just a touch of a button or two can help lighten the load for our over-worked educators.

Students can be much more successful in the classroom through the use of communication platforms such as Class Dojo. They can stay more organized by keeping track of their assignments and due dates for each class. Students can also frequently check their academic progress in a class. Class Dojo helps students take responsibility of themselves and their learning. Acquiring this life-skill earlier in life can be very empowering for students and lead to further successes as they continue to travel down their educational pathways.

Venezuela is Struggling

The circumstances in Venezuela have pushed everyone to resort to certain measures. Everyone is struggling, including the soldiers to support themselves.
According to the Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional website, six Venezuelan military members were apprehended by local authorities for goat theft this past weekend. The soldiers were thought to have confessed to stealing the goats for eating purposes since the food supply was empty in their barracks.

“It’s not a good sign when your military doesn’t have enough food, and when the military has been relegated to guarding and protecting food lines,” replied Jason Marczak, director of the Latin America Economic Growth Initiative at the Atlantic Council. “This is endemic of the problems going on across the country.”

“Venezuela has to the extreme been hit by devastating food supply shortages, an inflation rate of about 181 percent and a collapse in the price of its most prized export, oil” replied Jose Manuel Gonzalez, a licensed doctor in Venezuela .
Oil prices have dropped to more than 25 percent in the past year, despite a jump from their February low numbers. This has caused Venezuela’s current detrimental situation. The painful struggle is expected by Manuel Gonzalez to remain in Venezuela for quite some time.
