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 does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

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.

The Movement for the Survival of Izon Ethnic Nationality in the Niger Delta (MOSIEND) has called on former President Goodluck Jonathan not to return to the Niger Delta if he fails to contest the 2023 presidential election.

The National President of MOSIEND, Kennedy Tonjo-West, said all the youth leaders in the region were in agreement that Jonathan must run.

He said Jonathan had the temperament and focus to manage the problems facing the country.

Tonjo-West in a statement in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Monday, said Jonathan was known for not being power hungr

He said: “Jonathan’s competence to handle Nigeria problems more effectively and efficiently is not in doubt. He is not new in that environment and will fastly get things done before any other candidate.

“To this end, having extensively consulted far and wide with community youth leaders and critical ethnic nationality stakeholders in the region, we have their consent to call on former President Goodluck Jonathan to accept the clarion call by Nigerians to contest the 2023 election.

“It is obvious that while as human we have our plans and dreams about the country, God also have His plans to advance Nigeria as well. God is not finished with Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan concerning the leadership of our great country yet.

“The situation in Nigerian is worsening by the day and requires somebody with wealth of experience, detribalised and uncommon leadership attributes to fix the challenges. Nigerian can’t afford to misuse this opportunity to stabilize the country.

“Jonathan has been there, he has a clear roadmap to bail us from this quargmire we find ourselves. We will appreciate all our ministers, governors across the party divide to draw wisdom from Sen Bala Mohammed decision to step down if Jonathan finally decide to contest”.
