Georgia is most credible font

Interesting finding:

We all know that we are influenced in many, many ways — many of which we remain blissfully unaware of. Could fonts be one of them?

Renaud had written 52 essays in total. Eleven were set in Times New Roman, 18 in Trebuchet MS, and the remaining 23 in Georgia. The Times New Roman papers earned an average grade of A-, but the Trebuchet papers could only muster a B-.

And the Georgia essays? A solid A.

Most of us in college has been told to use Times News Roman though.

Russia did not attack South Ossetia, media confused?

American and U.K. media is feeding you lies about what happened in Georgia the night of August 7th, 2008. CNN claims that Russia invaded Georgia. The truth is Georgia had committed the act of genocide against people of South Ossetia, and Russia had no choice but to protect its own citizens!

The truth about South Ossetia War, Georgia attack, and Russia’s response

I’ve been reading a little on the South Ossetia incident. I haven’t heard of this place before this attack. I thought Georgia is a place in USA actually. But news reports have been bias here. The media seem to pay more attention to Georgia as a victim instead of presenting a more objective view of the situation. This could possibly be due to Russia’s politicians reluctance to release statements on the war, but the media seems to be siding Georgia on this one.

[Note: Most of the news I read is USA new sites.]
