COVID-19-based historic events
Color Esperanza 2020 (Color Esperanza 2020 is a historic event organized by Global Citizen, in partnership with Sony Music Latin, and Pan American Health Organization, that features a song of the same name. The event is similar to One World: Together at Home, as they both intend to keep people together while Social distancing and stuff like that, however, One World: Together at Home virtual concerts lasted hours and there were two, while Color Esperanza 2020's virtual concert lasted for ten minutes and there was one, and Color Esperanza 2020 is more themed as it is colour-based and Latin-based.)

Oral skill (The necesary ability or abilities which allows a person to speak correctly and in a way someone else can understand clearly)
The one source I found[5] which uses this term uses it in a different context, and so I think this is generally just called
"degemination",[6] which is discussed briefly at the end of the phonology section of Gemination.

This is a campaign started in May 2014 in Norway following the restrictions for university admission and resident permit of Iranian students in technical field with justification of UN sanctions and domestic export control. It was triggered when Hamideh Kaffash, an Iranian PhD student at NTNU, was expelled from the country after one year of researcher over the fear of transferring knowledge for WMD development. She sued the Norwegian government later in 2015.

Sociology people
Michael Macy - Michael Macy is a Goldwin Smith Professor of Arts and Sciences [47] and the Director of the Social Dynamics Laboratory [48] at Cornell University, where he has worked since 1997. He received his B.A. and Ph.D at Harvard, along with an M.A. from Stanford.
His research team has used computational models, online laboratory experiments, and digital traces of device-mediated interaction to explore familiar but enigmatic social patterns, such as circadian rhythms, the emergence and collapse of fads, the spread of self-destructive behaviors, cooperation in social dilemmas, the critical mass in collective action, the spread of high-threshold contagions on small-world networks, the polarization of opinion, segregation of neighborhoods, and assimilation of minority cultures.
Popular accounts of Macy’s work have appeared in mainstream media publications such as BBC, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Wired, TIME, CBS, CNN, Ars Technica. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Minerva Research Initiative, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Sloan Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, Google, and Yahoo! Research.
Michael Macy received the American Sociological Association’s (ASA) Award for Outstanding Article in Theory in 1993, in Mathematical Sociology in 2007, 2009, and 2016, and in Economic Sociology in 2011 and 2019, and was awarded the Academy of Management OMT Best Paper Award in 1999.

I've been exploring wikipedia, and found that we have a few stubby articles like Stereotypes of Argentines.. and that got me thinking: how about an article on Stereotypes of countries/Country stereotypes?? There's an awesome source at The Guardian, which then splits off into 6 articles on Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Spain. These sources are particularly good as they don't just state and explain the stereotypes, they also say how close they are to the actual situation in the country. This subject is very fascinating, and would love to get stuck in, however I do feel that you guys would be a lot better at putting this article together than I. Perhaps instead an article entitled National stereotypes - GoogleBooks seems to have a wealth of info on this topic.
Some useful sources: [97]; [98]; [99]; [100]; [101]; [102]; [103]; [104]; Yanko Tsvetkov's stereotype maps, seen here, and here.--Coin945 (talk) 17:03, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Fraternal organizations
LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender)
Please note:
Article seems to focus on neighbourhood as a whole rather than singling out any specific hotel, I suggest adding content to Tenderloin, San Francisco and/or solidifying existing information into an LGBT section if necessary.
I'd like a way to compare different "gay libel" cases that have been lodged, from Oscar Wilde to Tom Cruise to Liberace to Robbie Williams. I'm considering making a category, but the category name Gay Libel Cases seems anachronistic since the word "gay" wasn't used that way in Wilde's time. I'm also expecting pushback on linking gay libel cases which involved people later outed, like Oscar Wilde and Liberace, with gay libel cases involving straight people, like Tom Cruise and Robbie Williams. What do people think would be the best wording for a category like this to avoid offense & also avoid an overly long Category name? Markwiki (talk) 00:04, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
Sexuality-based defamation would probably be the most accurate, using "defamation" instead of "libel" to be inclusive of slander and false light (even though false light isn't quite considered defamation, the page is in the Defamation category, so it's close enough).

Other times they become focused on carrying out a mission they had in a previous life. A key element of the armor is that while it moves and fights as a knight, upon removing the helmet nothing will be present. [14][15] [16] [17]
