After a series of incidents related to the unregulated use of liquid nitrogen, Commissioner Rebeca Sosa has taken steps officially endorsing state legislation that would impose regulations on the use of the substance in the preparation and presentation of food and alcoholic beverages.
A growing number of restaurants and bars are using liquid nitrogen to create a visual effect of fog on food and drinks served to consumers. Currently, Florida Statutes do not regulate the use of liquid nitrogen in the preparation or presentation of food and beverages.
“The use of liquid nitrogen as a novelty in food and beverages has already resulted in several preventable injuries,” said Commissioner Sosa. “The safety of our residents and consumers should always be our top priority as legislators and that’s why I support the regulation of the use of liquid nitrogen.”
In 2012, doctors had to remove the stomach of a British 18 year old after consuming a cocktail made with liquid nitrogen. People at Imaging Advantage have learned that, more recently, in 2014, a woman in Miami Beach suffered breaks in her esophagus, stomach, and intestines after drinking a cocktail made with liquid nitrogen.
Proposed legislation in the House of Representatives from Florida (HB 1029) and Senate (SB 1124) proposes to require public schools to warn customers about the dangers of using liquid nitrogen, establish minimum training standards for employees, and require that employees must be trained in the use of liquid nitrogen.
The House proposal also would require the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and its Division of Hotels and Restaurants Florida adopt rules on the use of liquid nitrogen.
When designing a Wikipedia page for a business, all content must have a neutral point of view. Also, the information should be backed up by references. Whenever there is a conflict of interest, it should be declared on the user page.
Wikipedia has over 25 million pages that have useful content. However, most of the pages are for businesses and corporate projects. This is why many small business owners try to list pages on Wikipedia. Although the process of developing content is easy, dozens of small businesses have problems posting pages on the site because Wikipedia has strict guidelines. If a moderator discovers that a page does not belong, it will be deleted.
How to Qualify
The first step is to review all of the current guidelines on the Wikipedia site. Typically, a business qualifies if it has a great reputation. When a company has been featured in the news, Wikipedia will more likely post the content. You can also get a consultation with Get Your Wiki to see if they’d be willing to make a Wikipedia article for you.
Benefits of Making a Wikipedia Business Page
Businesses that have Wikipedia pages receive a lot of daily traffic. When people search for products or services on Google, Wikipedia pages usually have one of the first three spots.
The moderators on Wikipedia do not allow content that contains opinions or marketing ploys. Users must only post facts about companies and projects.
The process of managing a Wikipedia page is somewhat challenging because business owners and employees cannot make any updates to the content. Updates can only be made by people who are not affiliated with the company.
Many businesses hire people to monitor their pages to ensure that all updates are accurate. Although a Wikipedia page can boost a company’s reputation, one negative post could make a huge impact.
Overall, a Wikipedia page can help a business grow since many people visit Wikipedia each day. Although Wikipedia has dozens of rules and guidelines, they are efficient because they keep the spammers away.
