At two years old, she entered pageants and used acting as her talent. She was never afraid to be the center of attention on a stage or the shot of a camera, and one of her earliest roles was in “Problem Child 2.” She went on to also star in commercials, eventually working with big names such as NSYNC and even Tom Hanks at a young age.

Her biggest role has been of Lizzie Spaulding in the television show Guiding Light.  Crystal Hunt was also nominated for Soap Opera Digest Award for her role the same year. Guiding Light first aired on June 30, 1952 and ended on September 18, 2009. Cystal Hunt was on the show from 2003 to 2006.

The Impact Wikipedia has in the Online Community

Wikipedia is a widely used site, providing appropriate and quality information to all visitors to the site. It’s among the most visited sites, and it’s used in the analysis. The success of the site is based on your contribution. It’s an open source sourced website that allows edits from any Wikipedia user. When you make a Wiki page it isn’t just an entry in an online encyclopedia, it is also excellent and effective for branding and marketing. It’s usable by individuals, corporations, and all sort of organizations. Anyone can update a Wikipedia page which can be quite useful in branding and can work well for your company; however, some edits could be malicious. The Wikipedia management, however, shelters you or your business from any malicious edits to your  page through monitoring all Wikipedia edits in real time before they can be released to the sight of the entire world.

In the last election, John McCain’s announcement that Sarah Palin was his running mate, her Wikipedia page saw a lot of edits and served to polarize her and acknowledge the great things she had done. Could it be the trend today, in the coming election? With Hillary Clinton set to announce her VC in hours or days, could Wikipedia edits be useful in predicting the potential candidate?

Some of the Wikipedia pages that have seen most edits in the recent past include; the page of Ohio’s Senator Sherrod Brown, edited severally in the past week, that of Elizabeth Warren, senator from Massachusetts has also seen some edits this week; after an elevated number the earlier in the month when she toured with Clinton. The page of Julian Castro, the US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, has received an average of 3 edits daily this week, that of Tom Vilsack, US Agricultural Secretary also saw about 30 edits, while that of Virginia senator, Tim Kane receiving 62 edits on Friday alone and over 90 edits throughout the week.

A Wikipedia page is a quite helpful marketing tool, hire a Wikipedia writer from a business such as Get Your Wiki today and change your brand story. Stories are best when told by another; a third parties perspective, it could be your customer or even your employee, but it sure does a great job for you. It’s also essential you read the requirements when learning how to make a Wikipedia page as well as the set guidelines for writing content on Wikipedia, for your page or edits you want to make.

Connected With Kids Through Securus

There are parents who are in jail or prison and are not able to see the daily events that take place in the lives of their children. Securus has made it possible for those who are incarcerated to have a video call with their children and other family members. This isn’t the same as being there in person, but it does give the parent a way to see children instead of only listening to a voice on the phone.

To many parents who are incarcerated, talking to their children is what gets them through the days. They look forward to the communication. He can blow a kiss to his child and listen to the fun sounds that the child makes. The father can watch as the child plays with toys or takes a first step. He can see the child eat or crawl on the floor. These are the moments that are often missed by parents who are away from home.

Thanks to Securus, these special moments with kids won’t be missed any longer. As long as the other person who is getting the call has a computer, then the video call can go through. The service isn’t offered in all locations, but for those who are able to use the service, it’s a way to stay involved with their children.
