Daniel Demaret (talk | contribs)‎‎ ( Comment -> I was hoping that you might expand a bit on this paragraph of yours. "Marxist theories were tested extensively in the 20th century through Communism: what were the outcomes? Why did they fail humanity?" Specifically, what theories were tested and where. ´My first thought was that you might be referring to "communist states", thinking that they were marxist states. However, what we mean when we write "communist states" have been self-declared socialist states that were governed by communist parties, which had the self-declared goal to eventually lead their state from socialism to marxism. The first paragraph in this article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_state and other wikipedia articles are very clear about this. The hypothetical social stage proposed by Marxist theory were not, as far as I am aware ever tested in the USSR nor in China nor in any other country. So which marxist theories were tested extensively, as you wrote, and by whom? )

Perhaps he might be interested in an interview? )

• (view) . . Comment: Help us analyze gender pay gap data‎; 02:45:41, 13 Apr 2018 . . Kat O'Neal (talk | contribs)‎‎ ( Comment -> I thought this might be an interesting stat to include in the article. A Nature study showed "Universities, pharmaceutical companies, funders and other science-focused organizations maintain a gender pay gap that is 50% greater than the national average for all employers." and "Of the 172 organizations included in the analysis, 96% pay men more than women, according to the companies’ reported median pay gaps. Nationwide, 78% of all organizations favour men financially." https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-04309-8 )

  1. Hi Daniel,

    Just drawing your attention to the Project story on plastics in the ocean, in case you are interested.

  2. Hi Fiona,

    On my end, I see a list of “Recent contributions from Daniel Demaret” when I look at the URL :


    I can not seem to add an image of it here, so I shall copy-paste the first few rows of the text below.

    How to make gold? Take two medium-sized neutron stars, mix, and stir gently”

    The line with “Basic income…” links to

    which I hope you can see.

    1. The good news is that according to my logs that isn’t actually a change you made. The bad news is that it came up in your profile editing history. Did you open it up in ‘editor’? It may have been an autosave that attributed something to you that you didn’t do. We are removing those from our logs shortly.

      1. Thank you Fiona!

        The good news is very good news, and the bad news ain’t so bad.

        I cannot recall having opened that article in editor, but I suppose it is possible.

  3. Hi Daniel, could you let me know where that log is as I can’t see it on my end? That’s definitely something to look at. We have just changed the editing system and approvals from the back end so it may just be an error in how it’s displayed.
