You can practice your art skills by creating a greeting card with funny captions. This tutorial will show you how.
Create a card
Start Photoshop and create a new document in the size and shape that best fits your art project. You should make this size of the finished card larger than your art projects because you’ll trim off this area when the final result is output.
Color your card from 0% to 100%, so there is no blank space from 0% to your 100% color used in the card.
Create a simple background layer with a color fill that covers the area of the card that will remain white in the finished project.
Save the card as a file and reopen it to make any changes you need.
On the new layer you made, create a new layer to be the text area. Then do a type of “professional” font. The font is appropriate for a credit card and should fit within a box of 15-16 pixels in width for best results.
This step is optional, but often helpful to make the text lettering more legible.
Highlight the text layer.
With the layer below the text layer, use the Text Tool to place the first line of text for your card. A 15-16 pixel space is the best approximation to the size of text you’ll use in the final design.
Fill the text layer with the text color and place the second line of text on the text layer.
Fill the text layer with the same text color and place the third line of text on the text layer.
Fill the text layer with the same color and place the fourth line of text on the text layer.
Choose the type of spacing for this text. The standard spacing of text is:
The Standard spacing for text is 16px.
The Normal spacing for text is 12px.
Try a “see more” button using the Brush Tool to apply the desired color to the text layer.
Fill the text layer with the same text color, but this time change the width of the font to 10px.
Place the last line of text on the text layer.
Select the text layers using Control-click. Apply the dotted round corners to the text layer. For this style of card, you can use the default of 3 pixels.
Your first “card” is ready to send!

Measles attack spike worries in Australia
Health authorities in Australia have issued a warning following a large number of cases of measles, and stress the importance of not allowing children to under the age of five to attend services at a small Christmas Day church.
In a statement released on December 27, NSW Health Public Health Unit Director Chris Baggoley said that as of December 26, two new cases of measles have been confirmed since the disease was declared an epidemic in New South Wales on November 23.
The number of measles cases in the state during the Christmas period jumped from just 53 cases on December 22 to 114 cases on December 26, according to the Health Department.
Mr Baggoley said that despite the news, Sydney’s Christmas church services are a wonderful experience for children, especially if there are children from different cultural backgrounds.
“However, as with any event that brings children together, it’s important that parents remember their children are still susceptible to vaccine preventable diseases,” Mr Baggoley said.
“Unfortunately, the imported cases of measles are the result of the current measles outbreaks occurring in the Asia-Pacific region,” he said, according to The Australian.
The disease can be highly infectious and harmful to the developing infant’s brain.
“We urge the community to make sure all your immunisations are up to date for as you don’t know when you’re going to be exposed to disease,” Mr Baggoley said.
The Health Department advised that parents should ensure that children over five years of age are immunised against measles and can be encouraged to take immunisation against measles by the “GPs and public health nurses who provide the immunisation service”.
Vaccinations can also be provided by public health nurses in NSW.
Mr Baggoley said that when measles does occur, it can have an “extreme and devastating impact on the child’s health”.
While most children who contract measles will recover in about two weeks, “there is no cure and no way to tell who will develop complications”, according to The Australian.American Society of Hematology

Such a measurement and evaluating method has been disclosed in the prior art, for example, in a process for producing an epitaxial wafer in which a substrate of a semiconductor single crystal is subjected to heat treatment on a boat (i.e., a heat treatment plate) while a process gas such as silane is supplied, and then the process gas is supplied again with a predetermined purge gas so as to continuously produce wafers of constant quality, wherein the process gas is supplied while the boat is being moved and heated, and a change in pressure of the supplied process gas is measured (refer to Patent Document 1). Moreover, the cycle of replacing the process gas inlet pipe in the process gas supply system has been disclosed (refer to Patent Document 2).

PENNEY LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendant-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Argued and Submitted July 10, 1992.Decided Sept. 15, 1992.
Before BEEZER, BRUNETTI and FERNANDEZ, Circuit Judges.
Robert Barba appeals the district court’s grant of summary judgment against him in his lawsuit against the defendant, J.C. Penney Life Insurance Company, to recover amounts allegedly owed to him under the terms of a group insurance policy. He raises several issues on appeal, but only two are of merit. We affirm.
Barba makes three evidentiary objections. First, he objects to the district court’s admission of a “Do Not Pay” letter J.C. Penney wrote to him and to portions of the deposition testimony of Barba’s medical expert. We review for an abuse of discretion. See Pockman v. Durfee, 141 F.2d 641, 6
