Higher Education Takes Science Papers Online Via Wikipedia

Few educators at colleges and universities have ever allowed their students to submit their scientific papers and other research online. They certainly always dismissed web sites such as Wikipedia as nothing serious, as non-academic tourist traps, and as not signifying of any importance. That attitude has been forced to change for Wikipedia as it has grown in total volume of information and especially total number of users. Nearly 10,000 views of Wikipedia pages happen every second of every day, on average. The maturing of Wikipedia is now seen as the advent of truly open and free communications of all types of knowledge, including for academia.

Part of the maturing process at Wikipedia is not only the inclusion of serious research and learning by major educational institutions, such as Duke, Harvard, US Berkeley universities, but the new awareness that the knowledge on the site has become lopsided by gender bias. So many of the early Wikipedia writers and editors have been male (86%) that female views, and especially knowledge of famous and cultural icons that are women, have been missed. This was not planned in any kind of sinister plot. It is simply something that has fallen through the cracks. Multiple professors at these universities are rising to the challenge in what they term the “Year of Science” effort. One such project is called the Wiki Ed Project. It’s aim is to promote science through Wikipedia.

To streamline this process, the smartest contributors who have not been very involved with Wikipedia in the past, or who simply do not have the time to translate their scientific papers into the style and other requirements enforced by Wikipedia, are turning to Get Your Wiki.

Another rebranding followed in 1996 after the newly restructured Chemical Venture Partners acquired Chase Manhattan Bank. It took on the new trademark Chase Capital Partners while the J.P.

What Dog Food Companies Are Doing Right

There has been some talk about what dog food companies have done wrong in the past, but there should be a lot of more talk about what dog food companies are doing right. There are a lot of companies that are getting it right, and pet owners are appreciative of this. I have seen my dogs getting a lot better because they have access to a new range of dog food that may have previously been unavailable.

All that I really have to do is go to my local pet store and pick up a bag of Beneful dry dog food. (This company makes wet pet food too, but my dog prefers the dry brands). This is a company that has managed to make it stress free to find on facebook premium food because there is so much to choose. It all just depends on what your dog may be interested in. I like to stay with the Beneful Originals and the Beneful Playful Life. Both of these are foods that are bound to go as quick as I put these foods in the bowl. That is the joy of picking up a brand like Beneful.

Another brand that has taken a front seat with my dog family is the Honest Embark Kitchen. The name seemed a bit verbose and confusing, but I quickly found that this was one of the better dog food brands on the market. There are cool ingredients like turkey that I was never able to find in lots of other foods. That may be one of the reasons that my dog takes to this so well.

There are many brands, but Beneful is the best. It has a large variety. I have discovered that dogs adore variety. Beneful never disappoints. I don’t have to worry about any money being wasted when I buy this because I know that the dogs are going to eat it.


Men Might Have an Easier Time of Weight Loss

Many couples who live together have noticed a common and often frustrating experience when working out. Men often seem to lose weight far faster than their female workout partners. A perfect example is the before and after picture Next Level Lacrosse Camp posted of Jon Urbana at About Me. There’s been quite a few different explanations for it over the years. Some people put it down to the fuzziness of anecdote. Others maintain that it might simply have more to do with greater overall muscle mass on the average man compared to the average woman.

A new study has found a specific chemical which might be responsible for the different rate of weight loss in men and women. The study focused on the brains of male and female mice in hopes of finding some clues to the gender differences in humans.

The researchers discovered that male and female mice use a chemical called POMC peptides in very different ways. POMC regulates quite a few different things related to weight. It helps regulate appetite, physical activity, and general metabolism. Basically it helps the body know how much physical activity to get, and how many calories to keep burning in order to do so.

The researchers discovered that the appetite and physical exertion of male mice would change in relation to altered POMC levels. However, only the appetite of female mice was affected by the change. This suggests that female mice, and by extension women, are resistant to changes which would decrease their weight.
