All work, except the 4th one (texasone.us). That one did not successfully archive and redirected to another page useless for the purposes of this article. --1990'sguy (talk) 03:19, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

Texas[edit]

Texas is an awesome state and it is the biggest state and it has a lot of cowboys and it is known for it's rodeos. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Camogirl15 (talkcontribs) 13:48, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

That's true. One of the biggest youth programs in Texas if the FFA (Future Farmers of America). I can't tell if they have more farmers or cowboys. MicronesianHelper2016 (talk) 20:13, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 24 June 2016 - Updated visitdallas.com website backlinks[edit]

The Dallas Convention & Visitors Center has recently updated their website resulting in two broken links on this page.

Could you please update the following links?

=== Arts === Section Founded in 1892, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, also called "The Modern", is Texas's oldest art museum. Fort Worth also has the Kimbell Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and the Bass Performance Hall downtown. The Arts District of Downtown Dallas has arts venues such as the Dallas Museum of Art, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art, and the Nasher Sculpture Center.[1]

Updated link to visitdallas.com website to - http://www.visitdallas.com/things-to-do/arts/index.html

=== Commerce === Section Texas's affluence stimulates a strong commercial sector consisting of retail, wholesale, banking and insurance, and construction industries. Examples of Fortune 500 companies not based on Texas traditional industries are AT&T, Kimberly-Clark, Blockbuster, J. C. Penney, Whole Foods Market, and Tenet Healthcare.[2] Nationally, the Dallas–Fort Worth area, home to the second shopping mall in the United States, has the most shopping malls per capita of any American metropolitan area.[3]

Later history of Texas[edit]

The history of Texas after about 1950 seems to be a bit of a blurb. I'm pretty sure that Texas has seen more than the death of John F. Kennedy and two floods in Houston, but I don't know where to start. The Waco siege is probably important, as is the rise of technology companies like Texas Instruments and Dell and the presidencies of Lyndon Baines Johnson and the two George Bushes, but I don't know where to go from there. If someone with more experience could assist with that, that would be great. --XndrK (talk | contribs) 01:28, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Link to Maternal Health in Texas[edit]

Hello! I am a student enrolled in a Poverty, Justice, and Human Capabilities class at Rice University, and I am currently working on creating a Maternal Health in Texas article. I have noticed that there is no article detailing this topic, although the state of maternal health and maternal deaths in Texas have often been compared to those of a "third world" country. While maternal healthcare in Texas is a topic of much discussion on news and media outlets, there is a collection of unorganized and unfiltered information that would be of better use to the public if presented coherently. This new article “Maternal Health in Texas” would thus provide readers with the data and content that would allow them to understand health care policy and services and potential factors contributing to the excessive number of maternal deaths in the state. I am hoping to place this under the Texas article as the topic is a significant one involving political, social, economic, and health factors in Texas. If you would like to see the article, please feel free to my sandbox: User:SBanda/sandbox. I would appreciate your thoughts on this article being placed under "Texas." Thank you!

Incomplete "history" section[edit]

The Texas history section only goes up to the assassination of JFK, and it omits the period of major economic transformation and growth that the state experienced immediately his death. Also, the history section does not mention the Sun Belt, which is an important part of recent Texas history (but history nonetheless). The sections on more recent history look very different than here, for the worse. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:11, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 9 February 2017[edit]

under TEXAS / Climate / 'Average daily maximum and minimum temperatures for selected cities in Texas' Table, in the column of "August(°F)" change the max/min values for 'Brownsville' FROM "94/24" TO "94/76" (It does not average below freezing at Brownsville for August minimum daily temperature, at least not in recorded history) Refer to the cited reference Table for validation. 199.158.160.223 (talk) 16:45, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Done - thank you. Looks like °C was correct, just a typo in F. I can only imagine what would happen to the city if they had an August like that. Kuru (talk) 16:57, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
