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.

Hero of the Hour – Gina Miller

Financier Gina Miller shows her crusading spirit in an interview with the FT

 

Gina Miller, a founding partner of SCM and a campaigner against hidden fund charges, isn’t afraid to put her head above the parapet and in a frank feature published by the FT on Sunday 24th April, she once again highlighted her crusading spirit.

In the ‘Face to Face’ interview by Chris Newlands, 51-year old Miller highlighted how she’s stood up to racism and sexism in the City and that she even got the nickname ‘the black widow spider’ for it.

 

The creator of the True and Fair Campaign in 2012, Miller claimed she “[doesn’t] mind being a lone figure” and feels she is “doing something right for investors”. She truly is and it is time that more in the City followed her lead; it is time for transparency and time that regulators stopped protecting their own.

  1. Never afraid to tell it like it is… It is just a shame that she has to keep on say it again and again. It is time the boys started listening.

    1. Gina Miller has stood up for investors and exposed the extremely high charges funds take from the public. She is doing a great service and yes, in my view, she is heroic. You ought to look her up on Google. Here is a lady who isn’t afraid to take flack and here is someone I would have thought you’d have joined with me in celebrating.

        1. I respect your right to think whatever you want but in the case of Gina Miller, I think you ought to see the good she’s doing before making such observations. There are plenty of people worthy of negativity but I cannot see how Gina fits into this category.
