Wiki Wiki

On October 2, 2018 Donna Strickland became only the third woman in history to share the Nobel Prize in physics. That same day her Wikipedia entry finally appeared, frantically written even while people were searching for her name. Others had tried to give her an entry earlier, but Wikipedia’s faceless editors kept deleting her because they felt her work wasn’t noteworthy. The Nobel committee thought otherwise.

Someone has been nice enough to write a Wikipedia article about my work. Will it get deleted?

Keep on posting the great work. Some are helpful content in there. It is decent to see your site. I get a kick out of the chance to share these sorts of items to my friends. They like to read the websites for increasing great contemplations and information. Here you can check out my essay writing service to having a wonderful support for your writing.
