Each of the letters contains the modern Hebrew character , its numeric value, its name, the descriptive name of its ordinal symbol from the ancient Hebrew pictograph alphabet, and its meaning.

Early 'humanist' roman types were introduced in Italy. Modelled on the script of the period, they tend to feature an "e" where the cross stroke is angled, not horizontal, 'M's with two-way serifs, and often a relatively dark colour on the page. [8] In modern times, that of Nicolas Jenson has been the most admired, with many revivals. [18] Some have visible blackletter influences or other unusual features. [8] [19] [20] Garaldes, which tend to feature a level cross-stroke on the 'e', descend from an influential 1495 font cut by engraver Francesco Griffo for printer Aldus Manutius , which was the inspiration for many typefaces cut in France from the 1530s onwards. [21] [22] Often lighter on the page and made in larger sizes than had been used for roman type before, French Garalde faces rapidly spread throughout Europe to become an international standard. [16] [21] [23] Meanwhile, italic type evolved from a quite separate genre of type, intended for informal uses such as poetry, into having a primary use for emphasis. Italics developed from being conceived as having separate designs and proportions to being able to be fitted into the same line as roman type with a complementary design to it. [24] [25] [26] [c]

One of the basic points in your statement is that the action that I and my associates have taken in Birmingham is untimely. Some have asked: "Why didn't you give the new city administration time to act?" The only answer that I can give to this query is that the new Birmingham administration must be prodded about as much as the outgoing one, before it will act. We are sadly mistaken if we feel that the election of Albert Boutwell as mayor will bring the millennium to Birmingham. While Mr. Boutwell is a much more gentle person than Mr. Connor, they are both segregationists, dedicated to maintenance of the status quo. I have hope that Mr. Boutwell will be reasonable enough to see the futility of massive resistance to desegregation. But he will not see this without pressure from devotees of civil rights. My friends, I must say to you that we have not made a single gain in civil rights without determined legal and nonviolent pressure. Lamentably, it is an historical fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily. Individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but, as Reinhold Niebuhr has reminded us, groups tend to be more immoral than individuals.

SCANA’s nuclear-reactor project goes kaput, and there is not a word about all the radioactive waste that is avoided — only the money wasted.

The Lifeline program and net neutrality rules are integral to creating digital inclusion in Kansas City. Without these policies, Kansas City's low-income residents could be unable to access the Internet to apply for jobs, affordable housing and job permits, as well as find public transportation routes, Medicaid and Medicare information and education options for their children. Many of these processes are now only available online, unless the user is willing and able to travel or pay additional fees. Kansas City's students and schools could face even greater hurdles, no longer having access to the full world wide web, but rather a selection of sites made available by the ISPs, depriving them of a 21st century education. Kansas City's small businesses could struggle to find customers if their website and social media pages are placed behind a paywall or made completely inaccessible by ISPs. Kansas City's veterans and military families could find it harder to stay connected with one another when the cost of the Internet services they rely on become prohibitive and services like Lifeline are cut. Without access to affordable Internet services, many Kansas Citians could be excluded from the digital economy, which is becoming a larger and larger chunk of the economy at large, and deprived of the opportunity to be a part of their community.
In Kansas City, we are one community. And in this community we place a high value on equity. When we passed our Digital Equity Plan this year, we did so to ensure that our residents have equal access to broadband Internet and the digital economy. While we have and will continue to make significant progress to facilitate access for our residents, lack of access due to unaffordability of broadband, equipment and lack of the requisite skills plague many of our low income residents despite where in the city limits they reside. The federal government should take a similar view of our nation as one community and enact and stand behind policies that benefit the nation as a whole.
