Talk[edit]


Commnet: I find that the "Leo Moser" linkage is incorrect. The correct Leo Moser was the son of the Ludwig Moser who founded the Moser glassworks in Karlovy Vary (formerly Karlsbad, Austro-Hungary) in what is now the Czech Republic. Leo was in charge of art direction at the glassworks after his father's death, until a bank foreclosed on the firm during the Depression. Leo managed to escape the Nazis and died in New York in 1976, when he was in his 90's.76.104.127.104 (talk) 12:36, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I've also found this related page. I'll change the article accordingly. Warut (talk) 13:49, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Berzelium[edit]

I created the page berzelium, which was before a redirect to Praseodymium. This was the wrong redirect anyway. Berzelium was discovered as a element similar to thorium, later proven to be thorium. The Marks Brothers (EG Marks and JA Marks) proposed new names for a few elements, but nobody was interested in that. The thing that they proposed Lanthanum to be renamed to berzelium not Praseodymium.--Stone (talk) 12:37, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

The pronunciation on the page begins with a 'pra' sound, this does not agree with the infobox where both pronunciations begin with the sound 'pray'. I'm not sure if these are alternatives or one is in error. -- deflective (talk) 02:06, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
