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.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from «de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum» by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

Guatemala incumple con compromisos anticorrupción asumidos en la Cumbre de las Américas

El informe revela que no existen avances para fortalecer la gobernabilidad democrática del país, todo lo contrario, la falta de independencia judicial, el cierre de espacios para las organizaciones civiles, las reformas a la Ley de ONGs y la inexistencia de políticas anticorrupción, son la base para el bajo puntaje del país (0.63 de 3 puntos), colocando a Guatemala junto a países como Nicaragua, Venezuela, Honduras y el Salvador, países que comparten un deterioro en sus democracias.
