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.

Board of The Trump

Donald Trump offers an opportunity to join his “board of directors” for just $100 – Talk about a joke

 

Somewhat desperately of late, the Trump family have attempted to flog signed copies of The Donald’s The Art of the Deal for a “campaign contribution” of $184 and even offered a chance to win a $2,000 lunch with Eric Trump in New York if they give just $3. Now, the wannabe President of the United States of America has gone one stage further and is now offering “the best patriots” the chance to “take [their] spot on the Trump Board of Directors”.

 

In his email missive, Donald Trump adds:

 

“I’ve had a lot of success in business by building a great team around me. I know you share our vision for America . . . an America with strong borders, high-paying manufacturing jobs, a powerful military destroying ISIS and all other terrorists, a VA that truly serves our veterans, and a government that respects hard work and common sense, NOT political correctness”.

 

“That is why I want you to take your spot on the Trump Board of Directors”.

 

Rather like his now infamous dodgy degrees, all those giving $100 to “help defeat Crooked Hillary” will actually get is a certificate with their name on it and a note that reads: “You’re the best” from Donald Trump himself. You’ve got to bless him for trying; it’s not worth the paper it’s written on.

  1. No country is shifting from dirty to clean energy fast enough to hold global warming below two degrees Celsius, a ranking of 58 nations responsible for 90 percent of energy-related CO2 emissions showed Wednesday.

    Despite a boom in renewables, especially solar and wind, “the necessary energy revolution is still happening too slowly,” the Climate Change Performance Index 2017 reported on the margins of UN climate talks in Marrakesh.

    The annual assessment of national policies and actions to curb global warming found that the European Union has gone from leader to laggard, with the exception of some of its member states.

    France took top honours, in part due to its role in ushering in the landmark Paris Agreement, signed in the French capital last December.

    Sweden and Britain took the silver and bronze, mainly for policies put in place by governments no longer in power.

    Canada, Australia and Japan filled out the bottom of the ranking, though recent changes of government in Canberra and Ottawa may bode well for future improvements.

    The United States, the second largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world after China, got a “poor” rating, losing ground across all categories, the report found.

    If president-elect Donald Trump carries through with threats to pull out of the Paris pact, the US ranking would certainly fall further.

    Even China — which has drastically slowed its consumption of CO2-intense coal even as it builds out solar and wind energy capacity — got a poor mark, coming in 48th among nations.

    Nonetheless, China’s CO2 emissions are on track to peak ahead of the announced goal of 2030, experts said.

    “National governments have no more excuses not to enshrine the Paris Agreement into national law,” said Jan Burck of Germanwatch, lead author of the report.

    The fact that the growth of renewables continues apace despite depressed oil prices is a positive sign, he added.

    “So far, falling oil prices did not cause an increase in demand for the energy source, while a growing number of countries are starting to turn their back on coal.”

    The 196-nation Paris Agreement calls for curbing global warming at well below 2.0C (3.6F), and 1.5C (2.7F) if possible.
