Never give up

The saying that anything in life is possible no matter the situation or circumstances that you are in, is true, as a certain individual, Roger Cloete proved it. Roger contracted polio when he was young leaving him paralysed from the waist down, but his disability has not stopped him from following his dreams, of becoming a wheelchair racer and also working in the Namibian Defence Force. Roger also started his own business of polishing stones at his home in Mariental and defied the norm of disability is inability, which should encourage everyone to always be positive and to pursue their dreams.(Photograph by Hilmah Hashange, Information Officer, Ministry of Information and Communication Technology.

Today the Typesetter is a position at a newspaper that is mostly outdated since lead typesetting disappeared about fifty years ago. It is however a convenient term to indicate a person that is responsible for the technical refinement of publishing including web publishing. The Typesetter does not contribute to editorial content but makes sure that all elements are where they belong. - Ed.
