Julia Bishop - alma mater[edit]


I have indeed modified Julia Bishop's wikipedia page for the following reasons. While she may have followed a 8 weeks intensive course at the Harvard Business School, it would be improper to state that it is her alma mater. An alma mater in latin means "nourishing mother" and refers to a school one has in fact graduated from. It would be misleading to say that Julia Bishop is a Harvard alumni as she has neither received her undergraduate degree nor her graduate degrees from this school.

While also it is perhaps true that she may indeed have decided to enter the field of politics following her attendance at this intensive programme, it is unclear as to whether this information is relevant on a wikipedia page. Indeed, this statement is biased in nature and tends to portray the person in a non-neutral manner. It is also logically unlikely that her experience at the school has been in fact the main trigger behind her decision to become a politician. Yet, It does draw a disproportionate amount of attention to a short period of time spent at a prestigious institution. The fact that she has indeed claimed that it has been an important episode in her life is not sufficient in itself to justify that her time at Harvard should be given more attention than her time at the University of Adelaide, her actual alma mater, where she has spent most of her time as a law student.

I hope that my explanations are sufficiently exhaustive and satisfactory.

Hi and thank you for taking the time to respond.
I do agree with you in regards to her alma mater, and that has been removed.
However, in relations to her career move inspiration – that should not be removed, as she recognises the course as her inspiration for a career move. You or I assuming otherwise, is simply original research. Should you believe that the statement is written in a non-neutral manner, by all means, you may rephrase it.

Stephen Colbert/ Barack Obama[edit]

Sorry about that. I was attempting to add in information concerning lasts night show and I normally copy all the content to a note pad to edit before re-pasting it. I quickly changed my mind about how I wanted to write it and then accidentally re-pasted the original content of each page to the opposite page. I mean wow... it has been a long day... Anyways, Cheers! CanadianChemEng (talk) 05:49, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Mistakes occur, just try be a little more careful next time. Happy editing! —MelbourneStartalk 09:26, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

CSI (franchise)[edit]

Sorry for not explaining myself on my CSI (franchise) edits. Because the franchise is a broader topic than the individual shows, I don't think it makes sense for the article to be included in the individual shows' categories as well. Trivialist (talk) 18:34, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

That's fair enough, thank you for your explanation. Regards, —MelbourneStartalk 07:24, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
