"The bulk of Ms. Wadewitz’s work at Wikipedia concerned biographies of women, particularly writers and thinkers from the era that she studied to earn her Ph.D. An early contribution, or “edit,” was in 2006, when she “punched up the intro” to the article about Jane Austen, to note Austen’s “masterful use of both indirect speech and irony.”

More than 49,000 edits later, Ms. Wadewitz had created a whole library of articles about figures like the early feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, the children’s book writer Mary Martha Sherwood and the “woman of letters” Anna Laetitia Barbauld. Each of these biographical articles was labeled a “featured article” — the highest praise her fellow editors can give — appearing on the site’s home page."  - NYT

Troops in Venezuela's capital Caracas fired tear gas and rubber bullets as hundreds of people protested.

The demonstration came days after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro hosted opposition leaders for talks to put an end to months of political unrest.

The talks are viewed by some as a monumental task in a country polarised by high levels of poverty.

Months of violent clashes have left at least 30 people dead, hundreds injured and thousands arrested
