Best in Me - Blue

From the moment I met you, I just knew you’d be mine
You touched my hand and I knew that this was gonna be our time
I don’t ever wanna lose this feeling
I don’t wanna spend a moment apart

'Cause you bring out the best in me, like no one else can do
That’s why I’m by your side and that’s why I love you

Every day that I’m here with you, I know that it feels right
And I’ve just got to be near you every day and every night
And you know that we belong together, it just had to be you and me

'Cause you bring out the best in me, like no one else can do
That’s why I’m by your side and that’s why I love you, oh

And you know that we belong together, it just had to be you and me

'Cause you bring out the best in me, like no one else can do
That’s why I’m by your side

'Cause you bring out the best in me, like no one else can do
That’s why I’m by your side and that’s why I love you

Baby, ‘cause you bring out the best in me, like no one else can do
That’s why I’m by your side and that’s why I love you

Penghujung Rindu - Jamal Abdillah

Bila kekasih mengundang aku pulang
Mahligai menanti penuh gemilang
Bila kekasih menyingkap tabir cinta
Tiada terbatas dengan kata-kata

Dapatkah aku membalas dengan air mata
Tanda syukur menerima
Setelah sekian lama
Menghamba hidup pada dunia

Seribu tahun takkan sama
Sesaat bersatu dalam nyata
Kerna kasih ku sanggup korbankan
Jasad dan nyawa

Terang bulan kerana mentari
Hadir bayang kerana cahaya
Begitulah cinta kita

Tiada jarak pemisah lagi
Tiada garis sempadan budi
Aku terima dan jua memberi
Seikhlas hati

Seribu tahun dan sejuta langkah
Seribu tahun bersinar cinta
Kita bertemu di penghujung rindu

India teen tells US how to save $400 million by changing font (via The Hindu)

A 14-year-old Indian-origin boy has come up with a unique plan that could help the U.S. save nearly $400 million a year by merely changing the font used on official documents.

Suvir Mirchandani, a student in a Pittsburgh-area middle school, claimed that if the federal government used the Garamond font exclusively it could save about $136 million per year, nearly 30 per cent less than the estimated $467 dollars it spends annually on ink.

An additional $234 million could be saved annually if state governments also implemented the change.

Mirchandani said the idea came to him when he was trying to think of ways to cut waste and save money as part of a science fair project at his school, CNN reported.

The youngster noticed that he was getting a lot more handouts than he did in elementary school and decided to figure out if he could minimize use of paper and ink.

While recycling paper was one way to save money and conserve resources, Mirchandani said little attention had been paid to the ink used on the papers.

“Ink is two times more expensive than French perfume by volume,” he said, adding that he then decided to focus his project on finding ways to cut down the cost of ink.

As part of his experiment, he collected random samples of teachers’ handouts and focused on the most commonly used characters such as e, t, a, o and r.

He noted how often each character was used in different fonts like Garamond, Times New Roman, Century Gothic and Comic Sans and then measured how much ink was used for each letter, using an ink coverage software.

From his analysis, Mirchandani figured out that by using the Garamond font with its thinner strokes, his school district could reduce its ink consumption by 24 per cent and in turn save as much as $21,000 annually.

He repeated his tests on five sample pages from documents on the Government Printing Office website and got similar results that changing the font would save money.

Mirchandani’s findings have been published in the Journal for Emerging Investigators (JEI), a publication founded by a group of Harvard students in 2011 that provides a platform for the work of middle school and high school students.

One of the journal’s founders Sarah Fankhauser said that of the nearly 200 submissions they have received since 2011, Mirchandani’s project stood out.

“We were so impressed. We really could really see the real-world application in Suvir’s paper,” Fankhauser was quoted as saying…”

historicity-was-already-taken:

Fantastic article addressing the problems and erasures which can, and do, occur when government funding, lobbyists, public history, professional historians, and a contested national memory come together. Bonus points for being penned by one of the most terrifying professors in my department, and I mean that in the best possible way.

My favorite bit:

We were…dismayed to note that nearly all of the women pictured on the brochure were white, and several…not actually American. This sort of thinking about history typifies the NWHM style. Its approach is encapsulated in this statement on its website: “Women’s history isn’t meant to rewrite history. The objective is to promote scholarship and expand our knowledge of American history.” While most women’s historians would agree with the second part, we would disagree with the first. We have set out to rewrite history...most of us long ago abandoned the “add-women-and-stir” approach to women’s history.
