Cargo at Logan Airport[edit]

OK. First thing is I'm glad we are discussing this. Whether or not you realize it, the whole cargo thing is a huge issue at many airports. I had to make a cargo list at several other airports. Most airports that can't find anything on their first click just don't have any list. I personally think having anything is better than nothing and the more, the better. I believe having nothing is not a good thing. Unfortunatley, as you stated, it is hard to be 100% accurate, since these are controversial, but I thank you for your help. -Connor (WorldTraveller101 | talk | contribs)

Milky Way as GA[edit]

Thanks for your hard work on helping to make the Milky Way a good article. It has passed the GA criteria. :) Megahmad (talk) 19:54, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Your last edit in the Milky Way[edit]

Hello, your last edit included that "Stars and gases at a wide range of distances from the Galactic center orbit at approximately 220 kilometers per second", I think this 220 kilometers per second belongs to the solar system and the regions near it, I don't think that the stars in the milky way as a whole orbit at the same speed. What do you think? --Megahmad (talk) 09:47, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes, they all do: that's the main evidence for dark matter. See the Galactic rotation section and the blue (observed) line in the figure. —Alex (ASHill | talk | contribs) 20:42, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
OK!. Actually I am still learning about the topic and thanks for the info. Megahmad (talk) 21:27, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

DL LAX hub[edit]

Delta is expanding operations at LAX but it is not a hub officially by the airline (website, press releases). I think we should take this discussion to the Delta and LAX talk page. 68.119.73.36 (talk) 07:35, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Section "Alternative ideas" on the "Dark Energy" page[edit]

For several of the "citation needed", e.g. the possible failure of general relativity, I suggest the book [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.246.203.72 (talk) 00:16, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

Don't tell me; incorporate the reference into the article. If the source is reliable and the ideas not FRINGE, it will stand. But incorporating alternative ideas about a well-tested theory like general relativity is very low on my priority list. —Alex (ASHill | talk | contribs) 21:16, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Ashill, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
