Lession 2 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.

Lession 1 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.

What Is a High Functioning Alcoholic?

<![CDATA[Many are under the impression that alcoholics are easy to recognize.  They assume that the average alcoholic just wanders about the streets while muttering to themselves with a bottle grasped in hand. That they can’t hold down a job; can’t pay the rent or the mortgage; and are completely unreliable. Unfortunately, this depiction is not only untrue, but is much more complicated than most realize.

A High Functioning Alcoholic The giveaway is in the name. Alcoholics at [...]

Signs of Cocaine Use and Cocaine Abuse Symptoms

<![CDATA[14% of Americans, age 12 and older, have used cocaine at least once in their lifetime, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
