Today's OTD

  • 2001 Gujarat earthquake blurb (and lead) say "destroyed nearly 400,000 homes" but the source says "approximately 339,000 buildings destroyed and 783,000 damaged" so not really "nearly 400,000" and no clear mention of those buildings being "homes".

  • humanist in the first sentence should link to Renaissance humanism, not to Humanism. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 01:43, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
    So not a philosophy major...a search of the article for 'humanist' takes me to the categories. 'Humanism' takes me to the infobox and books that only say humanism, not renaissance humanism. --valereee (talk) 22:28, 25 January 2020 (UTC)
    @Valereee: The Humanism article mainly deals with philosophical ideas dating from the 19th century onwards; Renaissance humanism more accurately covers the time period concerning Budé. Perhaps the books only state "humanism" because the Renaissance variety would probably be the only one they would be talking about. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 11:47, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
Whoops, sorry, I did change it a couple hours ago, forgot to come back here! --valereee (talk) 12:35, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

The Collegium Trilingues did not become the Colle de France. The Collegium Trilingues was and still is in Leuven Belgium. The College de France was to some extent inspired by it but is quite separate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gobanian (talkcontribs) 17:08, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

General discussion

In the news: Coronavirus

On the Main Page it states that the coronavirus in China 'infects more than five hundred people, killing at least seventeen'. However, most recent reports state that there are more than 600 cases of infection ([2]), and I think it should be noted that these are only the confirmed cases, as a new report by Imperial College London ([3]) estimates around 4000 cases in Wuhan alone. Maybe this should be reflected on the Main Page. JACKINTHEBOXTALK 16:31, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

@JackintheBox: These kinds of reports ought to go to WP:ERRORS, but I've gone ahead and updated the figures to match the article. I suspect they'll need to be changed quite frequently. — 🦊 19:29, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Maria Elise Turner Lauder, created, fittingly enough, by Rosiestep. Daniel Case (talk) 22:21, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
I think the total number fluctuates, up and down, as some article are created and others are deleted. There may be several? But I guess someone must know of an easy way to find out. Martinevans123 (talk) 19:56, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
