|Long Description||Roger Ebert collects the past few years of his reviews along with interviews, essays, and "Ask the Movie Answer Man" into one sturdy volume--Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2000. The reviews, of course, are the main feature of the book, and they bear the hallmark of a man who no longer worries about censoring himself. (On Robin Williams in Father's Day: "He's getting to be like the goofy uncle who knows one corny parlor trick and insists on performing it at every family gathering.") He also clearly loves movies enough to be vastly irritated when they are poorly or lazily made. (On The Wedding Singer: "Did anybody, at any stage, give the story the slightest thought?") But Ebert does not have the snooty tastes of the stereotypical film critic--he gives the deliriously sleazy Wild Things an enthusiastic review because it is so incandescently trashy that in its own way it becomes a thing of beauty. Ebert is also not afraid to go out on a limb, boldly naming the box-office failure Dark City the best movie of 1998, and taking the risk of being the only audience member to blast an ultrahip entry at the Toronto Film Festival for being racist. And of course the book functions as a valuable browser's read and video-store companion, providing a list of recent movies and a quick answer to the does-it-suck-or-not question. --Ali Davis|

The Facing Identification Mark, or FIM, is used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) for the automation of mail processing. Basically, the FIM is a set of vertical bars that are printed on the upper edge of an envelop or postcard, slightly to the left of the stamp. It’s a nine digit barcode that consists of vertical bars and zeros, which are represented by the blank spaces.
The FIM’s primary function is to ensure that all mail is facing the proper way, to identify how the postage was paid (business reply, etc.) and whether or not the business reply mail has a POSTNET barcode. Should there be a POSTNET barcode, the mail can then be sent directly to the barcode sorter.
There are four different types of FIM barcodes, A, B, C and D.
- FIM A: Used for courtesy reply mail and metered reply mail with a preprinted POSTNET barcode.
- FIM B: Used for business reply mail without a preprinted ZIP+4 barcode.
- FIM C: Used for business reply mail with a preprinted ZIP+4 barcode.
- FIM D: Used only with IBI postage.
As far as standards are concerned, the FIM has to meet very specific guidelines:
- A FIM clear zone must not contain any printing other than the FIM pattern
- The rightmost bar of the FIM must be at least 2” (+/- 1/8”) from the right edge of each piece of mail
- Each FIM bar must be 5/8” high (+/- 1/8”) and 1/32” wide (+/- 0.008”)
- The tops of each FIM bar can’t be lower than 1/8” from the top edge of the mail
- The bottoms of each FIM bar can’t touch the bottom edge of the FIM clear zone, but can’t be more than 1/8” above or below the edge.
