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.

Life is cheap

It is a disgrace that Oscar Pistorius is to be released after serving just 10 months for slaying Reeva Steenkamp

 

News that Oscar Pistorius is to be released from jail next week after serving just ten months of a five year sentence for killing his girlfriend, the model Reeva Steenkamp, is illustration of only one thing and that is that life is cheap.

Pistorius – who has been described as having “behaved well” during his stint in the clink – will be freed on Friday 21st August and though he will be subject to a number of parole conditions, news that he will be a free man no doubt piles yet more trauma on Miss Steenkamp’s parents.

 

In a recently released letter, the Steenkamps commented:

 

“We do not seek to avenge her death and we do not want Mr Pistorius to suffer; that will not bring her back to us. However, a person found guilty of a crime must be held accountable for their actions”.

 

“Statistics show that our society is under continuous attack from criminals and murderers. Incarceration of 10 months for taking a life is simply not enough”.

 

“We fear that this will not send out the proper message and serve as the deterrent it should”.

  1. I know someone in the UK who served 10 months for breaching a court order that disallowed her from going near or contacting her own child. The mother who I know well (!!) saw her daughter and spoke to her and bingo… mother locked up. The differences of judicial decisions really do vary from country to country. One has to wonder if Oscar Pistorius is a threat to society and women in general, and my conclusion would be, he is. I would not want any of my daughters to go near him. On the other hand the locked up mother was not a threat to anyone including her own children! It’s all scary and very bizarre.

  2. Outrageous .This is a criminally irresponsible decision. Bad news for South Africa ‘s legal system. Obviously, not a fair and rule of law respecting judiciary. Why was not te release decision not appealed against?

  3. Oscar Pistorius is a narcissist, he will not learn from this experience, like OJ Simpson he will continue with his conduct disorder and destructive ways. His Public Relations team can spin until they are blue in their faces, this boy has no remorse.
