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.

Hunter wellington boots created for the Boat Races go on sale for £100 per pair

 

Bizarrely wellington boots are more likely to be spotted on the Kings Road than on a grouse moor but those wanting to make clear their affiliations in the 2016 Cancer Research Boat Races can now sport a pair of official Hunter Boat Race boots.

Offered as limited editions for both men and women, the boots are available in Oxford University Boat Club and Cambridge University Boat Club colours and pairs will be worn by the competing crews on Sunday 27th March also.

 

Featured in Hunter’s ‘Everyday Pioneers’ campaign, the boots are described as “[enabling] the crews to safely launch their boats whilst protecting them from the Tideway, the section of the River Thames on which the boat race takes place”. They don’t, however, come cheap and will only be yours if you part with £100 per pair.
