Maresme is a comarca located along the Catalan Mediterranean coast in Spain, between the comarques of Barcelonès and Selva, bordering with Vallès Oriental. Its capital and largest city is Mataró. Maresme's territory occupies a long and narrow area between the Mediterranean Sea and the hills of Serralada Litoral, Montnegre's and Corredor's hills in the northern half and Sant Mateu's hills in the southern half; this particular shape has conditioned the history of this comarca. The main distinct elements of its geography are the characteristic rieres; these short, intermittent water streams, which cross the comarca transversally every hundred meters, produce powerful and dangerous floods when it rains. Maresme has been very well connected with the rest of the comarca as well as with Barcelona thanks to old Camí Ral and railroad. Communications were enhanced in recent years with the construction of the C-32's Barcelona–Mataró section, the first autopista in Spain, its subsequent enlargement, the Mataró-Palafolls's section.

Schierker Feuerstein

Schierker Feuerstein is a German herbal liqueur, a half-bitters at a strength of 35% alcohol by volume produced in the village of Schierke, located in the Upper Harz region of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. Due to its red-brown coloration, the liqueur is named after the so-called Feuersteinklippe, a rock formation near the village made of reddish granite; the recipe was developed by the pharmacist Willy Drube, since 1908 proprietor of the chemist's Zum Roten Fingerhut in Schierke, and, patented in 1924. Administered to Harz tourists, the liqueur soon became a big seller until production was discontinued during World War II. By the end of the war, Schierke belonged to the Soviet occupation zone. After the death of Willy Drube in 1952 and the migration of his descendants to West Germany, production was continued at Bad Lauterberg in the Lower Saxon part of the Harz mountain range. From 1972 onwards, Schierker Feuerstein was produced again at the original place in Schierke, East Germany by a Volkseigener Betrieb, part of a larger beverages combine based in Magdeburg.

Upon German reunification in 1990, the Schierke and Bad Lauterberg locations merged within the common Schierker Feuerstein GmbH & Co. KG, which continued to produce the liqueur in both facilities. Made according to the guarded original recipe, Schierker Feuerstein is related to the following bitter drinks which are all based on the bitter herb, Artemisia: Underberg and Jägermeister, Piołunówka, Fernet-Branca and Gammel Dansk. Artemisia is called wormwood in England, it kills worms in the gut. The company recommends that Schierker Feuerstein be served cold, it can be an ingredient of different cocktails and long drinks.

Typographical error

A typographical error called misprint, is a mistake made in the typing of printed material. This referred to mistakes in manual type-setting; the term includes errors due to mechanical failure or slips of the hand or finger, but excludes errors of ignorance, such as spelling errors, or changing and mis-use of words such as "than" and "then." Before the arrival of printing, the "copyist's mistake" or "scribal error" was the equivalent for manuscripts. Most typos involve simple duplication, transposition, or substitution of a small number of characters. "Fat finger,"or "fat-finger syndrome," a slang term, refers to an unwanted secondary action when typing. When one's finger is bigger than the touch zone, there can be inaccuracy in the fine motor movements and accidents occur; this is common with touchscreens. One may hit two adjacent keys on the keyboard in a single keystroke. An example is "buckled" instead of "bucked," due to the "L" key being next to the "K" key on the QWERTY keyboard, the most common keyboard for Latin-script alphabets.

Certain typos, or kinds of typos, have acquired widespread notoriety and are used deliberately for humorous purposes. For instance, the British newspaper The Guardian is sometimes referred to as The Grauniad due to its reputation for frequent typesetting errors in the era before computer typesetting; this usage began as a running joke in the satirical magazine Private Eye. The magazine continues to refer to The Guardian by this name to this day. Typos are common on the internet in chatrooms and the World Wide Web, some—such as "teh", "pwned", "zomg"—have become in-jokes among Internet groups and subcultures. Pr0n is not a typo but an example of obfuscation. Typosquatting is a form of cybersquatting which relies on typographical errors made by users of the Internet; the cybersquatter will register a typo of a frequently-accessed website address in the hope of receiving traffic when internet users mistype that address into a web browser. Deliberately introducing typos into a web page, or into its metadata, can draw unwitting visitors when they enter these typos in Internet search engines.

An example of this is instead of which could be harmful for the user. Since the emergence and popularization of online auction sites such as eBay, misspelled auction searches have become lucrative for people searching for deals; the concept on which these searches are based is that, if an individual posts an auction and misspells its description and/or title, regular searches will not find this auction. However, a search which includes misspelled alterations of the original search term in such a way as to create misspellings, omissions, double strikes, wrong key errors would find most misspelled auctions; the resulting effect is that there are far fewer bids than there would be under normal circumstances, allowing the searcher to obtain the item for less. A series of third-party websites have sprung up allowing people to find these items; when using a typewriter without correction tape, typos were overstruck with another character such as a slash. This saved the typist the trouble of retyping the entire page to eliminate the error, but as evidence of the typo remained, it was not aesthetically pleasing.

In computer forums, sometimes ^H was used to "erase" intentional typos: Be nice to this fool^H^H^H^Hgentleman, he's visiting from corporate HQ. In instant messaging, users send messages in haste and only afterwards notice the typo, it is common practice to correct the typo by sending a subsequent message in which an asterisk precedes the correct word. In formal prose, it is sometimes necessary to quote text containing other doubtful words. In such cases, the author will write "" to indicate that an error was in the original quoted source rather than in the transcription. Another kind of typo—informally called an "atomic typo"—is a typo that happens to result in a spelled word, different from the intended one, since it is spelled the spellchecker cannot find the mistake. Examples include "unclear" instead of "nuclear", "you" instead of "your", "Sudan" instead of "sedan", "Untied States" instead of "United States", "the" instead of "they"; the term was used at least as early as 1995 by Robert Terry.
