I am going to lead a special issue of the Journal of Engineering, an open-access journal published by Hindawi. Read more about the journal in here. The acceptance rate of the journal is about 5% after rigorous peer-review process. You can see the call for paper in here or download a PDF version from here.
Sometimes, you need to summarise or highlight the most important points of a document. Preferably, it should be a centred box with a width less than the width of the page with a title.

But, come on! it is very difficult not to […]
It bothers me when I hear people saying that electricity is expensive. Even in Australia which has one of the highest electricity prices in the world, I believe it is still very cheap considering all services provided by electricity.
