Statue of Liberty
The Adamson Act, the first Federal act regulating hours, was passed in 1916. The evolution of the 8-hour day is better explained in the article, but there is no significant event chronicled for 1912.
Is the "American software engineer" named John Ford listed here a legitimate notable person? The link goes to the film director of the same name. If the person is notable, a better link would be helpful. If no one offers an explanation or a better link, I'll take it out.Brettalan (talk) 02:17, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
- There doesn't seem to be any article about this person, so I've removed the link. Favonian (talk) 07:42, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Revision of Nationality
I notice the editing I did on this page has been reverted as the reason for the changes is unclear.
To clarify, I altered some of the references to nationality to match that listed in the subject's Wikipedia pages or in references such as IMDB or Encyclopedia Britannica. Specifically, those references to 'English' politicians, scientists, armed forces personnel, etc.
When referred to outside of a 'local' context (or in connection with a national sporting team) English, Welsh, Scottish and people from Northern Ireland should be referred to as British. This is in line with Wikipedia page English people#In the United Kingdom which clarifies the current situation and correct terminology. Robata (talk) 16:33, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
