Two years and two days apart, both of the Burningham’s son’s died by suicide. The Burningham family doesn’t want anyone else to experience the loss of a loved one, so they are spreading awareness of the SafeUT cellphone app.  The app, which can be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play, provides youths confidential and anonymous two-way communication with crisis counselors at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute (“UNI”) or school staff via one-touch options to “Call Crisisline,” ”Chat Crisisline,” or “Submit a Tip.” Barry Rose, crisis services manager for UNI said about 1,000 people have contacted the institute via the app since its launch, resulting in 12,000 exchanges between texters and the CrisisLine. “Some are just a couple of exchanges when someone wants a referral and others can go on for hours,” Rose said. Youths seem more comfortable talking about their feelings through texts, he said. “We’re getting real, honest feelings that they may not be able to express over the phone,” he said. The SafeUT app, funded by the Utah Legislature, has enabled users and CrisisLine workers to “have very important conversations with people we may not have been able to talk with before. It’s a really terrific addition to what we are doing,” Rose said.  Read More Here

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.

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.

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.
