What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Blocking Betsy

Donald Trump begs supporters to help him stop his whack-job, wannabe bear killer education secretary nominee, Betsy DeVos, being blocked

 

In an email to supporters Saturday, ‘Trump Headquarters’ begged supporters to sign a petition of support for President Trump’s nominee for secretary of education, Betsy DeVos.

 

In the missive, which shared the news that Democrats are just one vote away from blocking DeVos’s appointment, though it is suggested that “Betsy has dedicated her life to fighting for greater education opportunities for children”, no reference is made to the fact that she has no degree, no teaching experience, never attended university and believes in only Christian-based education.

 

No mention is made either of the Republican mega-donor having lauded the idea of guns being kept in schools to “protect [children] from potential grizzlies” (grizzly bears) and her recent inability to answer questions on basic education policies, including proficiency versus growth.

 

Aside from warmongering, white supremacist Steve Bannon and fake massacre inventing, ‘alternative truth’ believing Kellyanne Conway, Mrs DeVos truly is one of the worst of Trump’s choices thus far. She truly deserves to be stopped.

    1. Looks like Elizabeth Warren destroyed her credibility. That was a most excrutiatingly painful interrogation with no credible answers given, or more so an evasion of giving any answer at all. You can see the standard of people who Trump wants to run America clearly and I would suggest she falls into the category he himself occupies. I loved the mention of Trump University. I would also suggest close looks at the ML Marketing/Fraud carried out by Amway and Herbalife, when the former seems to be dispensing with massive amounts of money to the Republicans. That is a major concern that Donald won’t be discussing in future.

  1. A dangerous ignorant woman being recommended by a dangerous ignorant man. Also a religious nut who believes that all schools should be faith based … I suppose that she would fit right in with Tony Blur

  2. She isn’t any more threatening than Educational Secretaries of the past. Prior to 1979 the department didn’t even exist and American kids were smarter and more educated than what’s being produced today. I could care less if they dismantled the entire department and give education back to the States. America would be stronger for it.
