Entries - O

obituary

The headline should be in the format NAME (Birthyear - Deathyear)

Joe Bloggs (1933 - 2008)

The strapline should contain a description of the person based on highlights from their career:

Theorist who revolutionized random-sets algebra and paved the way for supersymmetric theories of time

The obituary should be respectful and measured. Do not be defamatory, but equally do not exaggerate the person's contribution. Avoid superlatives.

Capital "O", capital "D".

Over 70,000 people visited CERN during the Open Days event this year. 

 

style

openlab

CERN openlab has a lower case "o". See their website

style

organisation

With an "s". 

Except when referring to CERN - "The Organization" - which takes a "z" and an upper case "O". (This is because the name was spelt with a "z" in the CERN convention, so the "z" is part of the official name).

Remember, follow British English for spelling.
