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.

The announcement comes as the dynamic leadership term of Cliff Burrows, group president, and his team at Starbucks comes to a close.  “On behalf of the CSC membership and Points of Light, I would like to personally thank Cliff Burrows and the team at Starbucks for their leadership of the Corporate Service Council. It’s a great moment to connect individuals to service in order to collectively create change in our communities,” said Sullivan. “I look forward to working with the entire team to amplify the dialogue and impact of service.”

Estimates show that at leading organizations 30% of all employees volunteer on annual basis. “There is tremendous potential in today’s most successful and innovative companies to harness the talents that have helped them achieve commercial success in order to address the most critical societal issues we face in the U.S. and across the globe,” said Sullivan. “The Corporate Service Council gives us an opportunity to work together as leaders in the corporate sector to help deliver high-impact volunteer service that will result in stronger communities, neighborhoods, schools and nonprofits around the world.”
