CBSE, causes and typos edit

@Acagastya: @Leaderboard:

(1). I'm still unsure whether this is a significant enough development to warrant mentioning, because to me it seems to just be an IB exam that has been cancelled? Not really imperative to the story I would say.

(2). I've already mentioned the causes of their plight in paragraph 3, but if you'd like I could move some to the lede?

(3). I'm an idiot. We've established that.

@Leaderboard: thank you for adding about CBSE, though, please use {{source}} template for citing. Otherwise, you can leave a note on talk page. (Really appreciate you adding it!)
@JJLiu112: Each year 1.5 million students appear for JEE-Mains (engineering) + 1 million for NEET (medical). That is a fraction of all the students who wrote class 12 exam. Yes, there are state board and the ISE. And let's assume 50% of people appearing for medical were also writing JEE, (not counting those who went for courses like hotel management, law, BS, NIFT and non-STEM fields) -- that is still a huge number. So putting things to perspective, it is a big number. A number close to total deaths by COVID that has happened so far. It is relevant info, and fits in the context and it is better to mention. You weren't aware, does not make you an idiot. You learn something new everyday. Please strike that third point if you can, please. People who are honest in declaring their lack of knowledge, but willing to learn -- they are not idiots and it is the duty of people who know, to not only to help them, but to reassure, asking questions isn't a bad thing, neither is not knowing. The man who asks, learns. The one who never questions, misses a golden opportunity.

Alright, thanks for the...motivation. --JJLiu112 (talk) 02:31, 16 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Names edit

They were there on the old Reuters web site at the very bottom, listed as "reporters" and "writers". I truly can't stand the redesign of "Reuters beta", it just looks so corporate and dull and a mobile app on a computer. The rounded edges are painful. --JJLiu112 (talk) 04:53, 17 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

If you frequent that site a lot, you will get used to it -- same happened with GitHub and twitter, and almost everything else.
