My wikipedia experience

Since the begining of the course we have use wikipedia in different ways

First we have create a Sandbox in our english wikipedia’s accounts

Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 13.23.27

The Sandbox is divided into:

  • Templates
    The templates in english wikipedia use the format
    Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 18.38.05
  • Infobox
    I have divided my infobox into three main categories

    • Foods
    • Chefs
    • TV
      Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 18.41.13
  • References
    Which are so important in our work
    Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 18.43.04

So after the english wikipedia we did the same into different languages. I decided to do it in Spanish

The sandbox in spanish is “Taller” and it is divided into:

  • Fichas
    I divided into two main categories

    • Cocineros
      Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 18.49.05

      • Here I have a little problem with the “ficha” of the cheef Arguiñano wich doesn’t appear as cheef, it’s appear as “ficha” of journalist
    • Programas de television
  • Plantillas
    Here “Plantillas” follow the formats of

    • AP –> Artículo principal
    • VT –> Véase también
      Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 18.53.04
  • Referencias

After the use of Wikipedia Sandbox  we had present our Wikipedia experience during the lessons with Emaze.

This is our presentation about our wikipedia experience. You can take a look at

In order to my Wikipedia contribution  I translated a page in English to Spanish about an article of the famous Cheef Jamie Oliver. It is related to the topic #food of my group #GroupB10.

Captura de pantalla 2015-06-11 22.03.14

So I decided to write the “Trayectoria Profesional” and also I added a little table about some of the TV programms in wich Jamie Oliver has appeared.

Año Programa Descripcion/Notas
1999-2001 The Naked Chef 3 series más 3 especiales

Primera serie de Oliver. El título era una referencia a la sencillez de las recetas de Oliver y no tiene nada que ver con la desnudez.

2000 Pukka Tukka Especial en el canal 4
2002 Oliver’s Twist 52 episodios
Jamie’s Kitchen Un documental de 5 episodios donde se sigue a Jamie Oliver donde intenta formar a un grupo de jóvenes desfavorecidos,
2003 Return to Jamie’s Kitchen 2 episodios
2005 “Jamie’s School Dinners” Una serie documental de cuatro partes donde Jamie Oliver tomó la responsabilidad de ejecutar las comidas de cocina en la escuela Kidbrooke en Greenwich, por un año. Disgustado por la comida poco saludable que se sirve a los niños de la escuela y la falta de alternativas saludables que se ofrecen, Oliver comenzó una campaña para mejorar la calidad de las comidas escolares de Gran Bretaña.6
Jamie’s Great Italian Escape Una serie de seis partes, una guía de Viaje, emitió por primera vez en el canal 4 en el Reino Unido en octubre de 2005. De ello se desprende Oliver en su viaje por Italia en un azul VW van (además de un remolque para cocinar). Él está a punto de cumplir 30 y esta es su aventura personal para redescubrir su amor por la cocina.7
2006 Jamie’s Kitchen Australia 10 episodios

Here attached is the link of the google docs where I have explain a little my work with my wikipedia contribution


A Short Review of our personal experience with IM Tools

This year we continue with the subject of Information Management. In the previous year we had used tools such as Twitter, Google +, WordPress and Wikilittera. The last year was about Social NetWorking


So this year we continue using tools of social networking such as Twitter and our Wikilittera account; and new IM Tools. We have centered in wikipedia account, because our main objective is to write or edit wikipedia articles.

So we used during this semester different new tools that  are quite useful for us:

  • Oceano –> descarga
  • Refworks –> (1)
  • Flow –>
  • Mindmap –>
    Screen Shot 2012-10-08 at 10.42.50 AM
  • –>
  • Factsheet
  • Wikipedia Sandbox –> de pantalla 2015-06-11 13.23.27

First we have used tools such as Oceano, Refworks and flow to look for references for our wikipedia accounts. We know that all the articles, web pages are not realiable at all. So we have to be patient and be careful of the information that we used. We have to be selective whit the information that we search.

So we can use Oceano to look for reliable information where we can find articles, magazines or even books from professors and lecturers that are reliable. Oceano is the virtual library of Deusto.The articles are in different languages.

Other tool that we can use is Refworks which is a web-based bibliography and database manager were we can create references or import references from text  and other various sources, and city in the different styles such as APA Style or BibTex.

In order to the references we can collect our references in Flow.proquest and make categories. This tool is related with Refworks so we can put our references of Refwors in Flow. The information can be organized in different cathegories and you can also share it with other people.

Other tool that we used is Mindmap. As wikipedia said “A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information. A mind map is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank landscape page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those.” (Wikpedia contributors 2015) So with this we have create mindmaps about our topics and categories.

One more tool that we use is which is a platform where people share information, articles, videos, pictures… related to our topics. Furthermore it helps us  to find content from our favourite topics.

Also we have used factsheet which is not a tool. We create a google.doc where we write the information data.

To finish with the tools and works that we have use and done we have use wikipedia sandbox where we have search for refrences, infoboxes, and templates.

Also we continue promoting our topics and the subject in twitter.

How is Gender in China

The purpose of this post is to compare how is gender in China, and connected with that how Chinese women feel that they are inferior than mens.

Chinese women are discriminated against in society and grow in an environment where the listener negative comments about their role in society, its capacity, its value … This creates it as a way of thinking that makes you feel incompetent, submissive and without values.

Chinese women are also subjected to domestic, physical, mental and sexual violence by men.

“In China from very early times, men have been seen as the core of the family”1

Although there are laws that determine gender equality, in practice women’s rights are not equal to those of men and despised them  in areas such as education, employment, promotion and legacy today.

In China women have been considered less capable than men, this is why they have committed murder and abandonment of girls also should be noted that the Chinese female population has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.


“(…)it became common for writers to discuss gender in terms of yin and yang. Women were yin, men were yang”1

Since the measure is adopted that it is compulsory one child, the government always encouraged men holding since then China needed many more men than women who undertake rural work hard.
The largest gender difference occurs in the field, while in big cities tend to be reduced.

In rural areas continue arranging marriages between families and the subjugation of women to his father persists, first as her husband and mother, later. The woman leaves her family to move to the husband, which brings his work, children and elderly care. This poor literacy, lack of opportunities and low self-esteem adds.

china campo

“Despite the fact that the socialist system and the laws of the PRC consider women
to be the equal of men, there remain a number of gender-based inequalities in the PRC”  2

“(…) Womens are capturing an increasing proportion of jobs in the non-state manufacturing sector, particularly in
town and village enterprises (TVEs) and in the Special Economic Zones. These jobs pay higher
wages than either domestic or agricultural work and give women, especially young single
women, the opportunity to gain skills and a greater degree of economic independence” 2

Also in China traditional marriage was a contract between families rather than between two individuals that are in love each other.


The Asian giant, which hosts 20% of the world population (1,260 million), records a quarter of all suicides in the world and is one of the few countries where the rate is higher in women than in men. In Eastern culture, suicide is considered a form of expression in itself, a “silent protest”.
Some of the problems that lead to suicide are the tides of migration to the city, one-child policy, closure of hundreds of state-owned enterprises, unemployment benefits to social and work life, greater liberalization part of the economic sectors and growing consumer culture and money.

Finally, related to this theme is important to talk about a important think that happened some months ago in China. “A Chinese man sued hiswife for being ugly and not letting him know. Well, actually, she was apparently facially-untogether so she spent over $100,000 getting plastic surgery. She met a dude named Jian Feng, they got married and all was well. Until she had their daughter.”

“Chinese man sued his wife for being facially untogether and won” The information is taken by this article  – November 6, 2013 Luvvie
