"Here is what I know:
The Ancient Egyptians believed that the human heart was the
source of all emotion.
When we loved, you planted an earth. When you left, I caved
from the root.
God is many things. He is a cloud and a tree and a falcon and
a flower. He is a poem written from an airplane flying over
Georgia.
This heart is a greedy thing. It is a stubborn four-year old
throwing a tantrum. It is a hungry house. It is a christian-less
church. It is a break-less car driving 200 mph.
When you fall in love for the first time, it feels like coming home.
But love isn’t a house. It is faith. It is a natural thing. It can get lost. It can spoil.
Writing a poem like this is never pretty. But then again, neither
is heart break.
Moving on is a voyage. Moving on is a train ride that almost never ends. It is an elevator that doesn’t know which way is up.
The only way to make to it is to press all the buttons, and pray you get off on the right floor."

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…”

"Gusto ko yung relationship na chill lang." — Hindi namin pipilitin yung isat-isa na magpaka perfect para lang magtagal kami. Gusto ko yung parang tropa lang? Gusto ko i-enjoy lang namin yung mga araw na kami pa. Kulitan, bonding, asaran, lambingan. Gusto ko sa kanya mismo manggaling yung desisyon na mananatili siya sa buhay ko kasi mahal niya ako, at gusto niya na ako yung tumupad sa forever niya.
