 Hebrew calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As the Hebrew calendar was developed in the region east of the Mediterranean Sea, references to seasons reflect the times and climate of the Northern Hemisphere.
This figure, in a detail of a medieval Hebrew calendar, reminded Jews of the palm branch (Lulav), the myrtle twigs, the willow branches, and the citron (Etrog) to be held in the hand and to be brought to the synagogue during the holiday of sukkot, near the end of the autumn holiday season.

 Talk:Polish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For now, there is a lot of content which references Polish when they mean Polish language, Poland and Polish people (the last is currently a redirect to Poles, though this should probably be the other way around).
I suggest that Polish should eventually be a redirect to Polish language.

When using citations, one generally uses both a works cited page or section--also called the bibliography, source list or list of references--in conjunction with parenthetical citations (citations which refer the reader to a particular cited work).
Varying rules and practices for citations apply in a science, a law, a theological citing of authority (e.g.
These direct readers to work of the author on the list of works cited, and the page of the work where the information is located (e.g. /en/wikipedia/c/ci/citation.html   (109 words)

 TCS: Tech Central Station - The Faith-Based Encyclopedia
Unfortunately, a couple of references within the body of the article that mention his age in certain years are clearly derived from a source that used the 1757 date, creating an internal inconsistency that the reader has no means to resolve.
All these arguments aside, the article is what might be expected of a high school student, and at that it would be a C paper at best.
The article is rife with typographic errors, styling errors, and errors of grammar and diction. /111504A.html   (2072 words)

 Wikipedia: Yes or No? Ask MetaFilter
On preview...I've heard about the eternal insider wranglings at wikipedia before - there was a MeFite a few weeks back who selfposted in an FPP and the transcript of her infighting at wikipedia was linked.........but I don't think anecdotal testimony about individual political problems is sufficient to dismiss the whole project out of hand.
Unfortunately, a couple of references within the body of the article that mention his age in certain years are clearly derived from a source that used the 1757 date, creating an internal inconsistency that the reader has no means to resolve.
See how they deal with controversial articles, and decide for yourself if the article that's ultimately produced is the result of honest wrestling with difficult issues, or is just a matter of what undergraduate has the most free time on his hands to hector and kvetch until his version becomes the accepted version. /mefi/17456   (4372 words)

 Wikipedia:Categorization - Wikipedia
Categories (along with other features, like cross-references) should help users find the information they are looking for as quickly as possible, even if they don't know that it exists or what it's called.
A few categories do only merely subdivide their parent category, but unless the parent category has many potential articles under it, or many potential subdivisions, if you can't think of a second parent category, it might be a better idea to fold your smaller category into the parent.
Categories should be more or equally as broad as the articles they contain; articles should be more or equally specific as the categories they are in. /wiki/Wikipedia:Categorization   (2566 words)

 User talk:Brion VIBBER/NotTodo list - Meta
The problem with the Breton wikipedia is worst than just doesn't existing, there are lots of wrong references to the Belarussian one (code: be) claiming to be Brezhoneg (Breton, which code is br).
There has been some confusion it seems over, I think largely due to a mistake on en:ISO 639 (which gave be instead of br for Breton).
Our request of changing the logo in one featured romanian logo was two times deleted, and never solved, as the istalled logo and the proposed logo are shown below, and there is a big difference between that two. /wiki/User_talk:Brion_VIBBER/NotTodo_list   (537 words)

 Criticism of Wikipedia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some articles are excellent by any reasonable measure – authored and edited by persons knowledgeable in the field, containing numerous useful and relevant references, and written in a proper encyclopedic style.
Some argue that criticisms and commentary on certain topics are systematically excluded, deleted or reverted by self-appointed censors, and that even attempts to make compromises or build up articles to include a variety of views are thwarted by uncompromising "vandal-editors" who simply delete or revert unwanted views that don't fit their agenda.
A more difficult problem to address is that, even when topics are covered, they are covered from what seems to be a neutral point of view to the current participants only, which may not meet the neutrality standards of the current readership as a whole, or of the potential readership. /wiki/Criticism_of_Wikipedia   (4559 words)

 Barney & Friends - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Unlike the previous crownholder of children's television, Sesame Street, every word spoken in "Barney & Friends" is completely accessible to kids and the writers do not throw in witty lines and sophisticated cultural references to amuse the adults in the audience.
Barney & Friends is a children's television show, mainly aimed at preschoolers, starring a large purple dinosaur named Barney.
Aside from many human actors of a highly diverse ethnic mix, Barney's friends include other plush dinosaurs, such as Baby Bop and her brother, B.J.. /index.php?title=Barney_and_Friends&redirect=no   (2289 words)

However, the entire reason that the Rape article has a section on Rape and Sexual Torture is to discuss rape when it occurs not as an act of self-gratification committed at another's expense (as it usually does), but as a method of torture to advance policy.
It is no assurance of that treatment but at this point the U.S. has no ground to stand on in demanding humane treatment of its POW's because it has chosen to unilaterally withdraw from the Geneva conventions using legalistic hair splitting. /articles/05/01/03/144207.shtml?tid=95&tid=1   (9126 words)
