Charles Dickens

...Charles Dickens by, Charlotte Toal “Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well; whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely; in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest.” These inspirational words spoken by Charles Dickens are not what come to mind when people think of this remarkably talented and widely appreciated author, but his great and timeless works are. As a man of compassion, insight, and aptitude, the English author had many thoughts, both those he incorporated into his books, and those he did not. As a young boy in England, Dickens got a generous taste of hardship and suffering. Many poor families—like his—worked in factories. The particular factory, in which he worked for several years, was a shoe polish factory. While his father was in debtors’ prison, Dickens’ family moved away from him to be close to the prison. The twelve-year-old boy was forced to live alone and work. Although the first years of his life were neither the most pleasant nor advantageous, it was not always that way for Dickens. Though most present-day authors, business men, or politicians don’t establish themselves in a particular working venue or business until later in life, Charles Dickens became an accomplished freelance reporter and stenographer, and by age twenty he had become a reporter for two newspapers. Shortly after beginning his writing career, Dickens began submitting—and......

Ray Charles

...Introduction Ray Charles is considered a musical genius in many different fields. He has a large success in pop, jazz, blues, country, and R&B. Charles is also known as an inventor of soul music. Background In the first golden age of rock and roll they only called one man The Genius, and that was none other than Ray Charles. Born in Albany, Georgia, throughout the depression, and blind by the age of seven, Ray Charles Robinson absolutely had the deck stacked against him from the earliest starting point. “Lots of folks shifted musical styles when their sales figures or their muses indicated it, but Brother Ray alone knew how to cross so many musical boundaries at once. Not even Elvis Presley at his peak could claim such a seamless blend of pop, country, gospel, and blues” (Robert Fontenot). Discussion Biography Ray Charles Robinson was conceived in Albany, Georgia, on September 23, 1930, Charles was brought up in Greenville, Florida, where he made the knowledge of a piano-playing neighbours.

Charles Manson

...subjected to that lifestyle. Charles Miles Manson is one of America’s most notorious murders in American history. His ways to manipulate and inspire his followers in to committing murders without second guessing themselves is like nothing ever seen before. The murderers were members of a group led by Charles Manson called the Manson Family. These people were completely controlled by Manson. He had them convinced that they were the chosen ones and that they were only carrying out the orders of a man they thought was Jesus Christ incarnate. They were willing to risk death and imprisonment to satisfy this man. He was born November 12, 1934 in Cincinnati, Ohio. His mother, Kathleen Maddox was six-teen when she gave birth to him. With her troubles in and out of jail, a young Charles Manson spent most of his adolescent childhood with his aunt and uncle is West Virginia. They were very religious and strict individuals which, was a culture shock to him. Growing up just like his mother, Charles Manson was in and out of boys’ homes and detention centers. At the age of nine-teen he was let go on parole and married a waitress named Rosalie Willis and had their first child by the name of Charles Miles Manson Jr., their marriage did not last.

Charles Manson

...Charles Manson was born Charles Milles Maddox on November 12, 1934, in Cincinnati, Ohio, to Kathleen Maddox, a 16-year-old girl who was both an alcoholic and prostitute. Kathleen later married William Manson, but the marriage ended quickly and Charles was placed in a boy’s school. Despite running back to his mother, she didn't want anything to do with him. Charles was soon living on the streets and getting by through petty crime. I plan to discuss Manson’s background and answer the question “Why did Mason become a criminal?” Manson an American criminal and musician who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in the California desert, in the late-1960s. In 1971 he was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the murders of seven people, actress Sharon Tate and four other people at Tate's home, and the next day, a married couple, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, all carried out by members of the group at his instruction. He was convicted of the murders through the joint-responsibility rule, which makes each member of a conspiracy guilty of crimes his fellow conspirators commit in furtherance of the conspiracy's objective. He was seen as a person who suffered from a large degree of rejection, instability and psychic trauma and always looking for status and securing some kind of love. Often he was also known to be dangerous, unpredictable and safe only under supervision. In many ways Manson reflects personality traits and obsessions that are associated......

...Name: Delcil Charles Program: Architecture/ Building Construction Course: Information Technology Date: 04/02/11 A Brief History of the computer. The history of computers starts out about 2000 years ago, at the birth of the abacus, a wooden rack holding two horizontal wires with beads strung on them. When these beads are moved around, according to programming rules memorized by the user, all regular arithmetic problems can be done. Another important invention around the same time was the Astrolabe, used for navigation. Blaise Pascal is usually credited for building the first digital computer in 1642. It added numbers entered with dials and was made to help his father, a tax collector. In 1671, Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz invented a computer that was built in 1694. It could add, and, after changing some things around, multiply. Leibniz invented a special stepped gear mechanism for introducing the addend digits, and this is still being used. The prototypes made by Pascal and Leibniz were not used in many places, and considered weird until a little more than a century later, when Thomas of Colmar (A.K.A. Charles Xavier Thomas) created the first successful mechanical calculator that could add, subtract, multiply, and divide. A lot of improved desktop calculators by many inventors followed, so that by about 1890, the range of improvements included: * Accumulation of partial results * Storage and automatic reentry of past results (A......

Charles Dickens

...AUTHOR British author Charles Dickens was born Charles John Huffam Dickens on February 7, 1812, in Portsmouth, on the southern coast of England. He was the second of eight children. His father, John Dickens, was a naval clerk. Charles Dickens’ mother, Elizabeth Barrow, aspired to be a teacher and school director. Despite his parents’ best efforts, the family remained poor. In 1822, the Dickens family moved to Camden Town, By then the family’s financial situation had grown dire, as John Dickens had a dangerous habit of living beyond the family’s means. Eventually, John was sent to prison for debt in 1824, when Charles was just 12 years old. Following his father’s imprisonment, Charles Dickens was forced to leave school to work at a boot-blacking factory alongside the River Thames. At the rundown, rodent-ridden factory, Dickens earned six shillings a week labeling pots of “blacking,” a substance used to clean fireplaces. It was the best he could do to help support his family. The horrific conditions in the factory haunted him for the rest of his life. Apparently, Dickens never forgot the day when a more senior boy in the warehouse took it upon himself to instruct Dickens in how to do his work more efficiently. For Dickens, that instruction may have represented the first step toward his full integration into the misery and tedium of working-class life. The more senior boy’s name was Bob Fagin. Dickens’s residual resentment of him reached a fevered pitch in the......

Ray Charles

...Ray Charles Is it justifiable or not for him to take gospel music and turn the song into secular songs? Explain whether it was right or wrong. What motivated Ray Charles to experiment with so many genres of music? Was Ray Charles responsible for Margie Hendrix’s early death? Why/Why not? Use one word to describe Ray Charles and explain why. It was justifiable for Ray Charles to take gospel music and turn the song into secular because a new generation was arising. In a community where different genres of music are seen as competition in the music industry, Ray wanted to stand out. The best way to achieve this he had to cause controversy. By remixing and old time favourite gospel track, he gained popularity both negative and positive. This is not doing anything wrong but a making a smart business move. But doing this, he attracted new people to discover the classics such and the young people. They did not live in an all-around religious community but lived in a community where many secular activities occurred and sometimes even worse. To make it in the industry he wanted to relate to the community. I feel like he accomplished this to the best of his ability and this paved the way for many artists to do this action in today’s era. There are many influences that motivated Ray to experience to different type of music genres. Ray’s obsession with Nat King Cole pushed him to mimic his style in the beginning of his career. Due to his wife not liking they route he was......

Charles & Keith

...selected entrepreneur is from 1994 to 2011. According to Schaper and Volery (2004) the factors that influenced the entrepreneurial activity for Charles and Keith from 1994 to 1996; just prior to the founding of the brand can be classified into five elements, namely, the environment, opportunities, resources, the organisation and the entrepreneur. At that point, the environment at community level during that time was that there were no known home-grown brands in the fashionable footwear market. Providers that exist were either neighbourhood stores or branded labels such as Nine West. However, during that period with a weak economy (National Wages Council (NWC), 1996), both brothers, Charles and Keith faced employment challenges such as the lack of opportunities as they had not done well academically and with that, they decided to work in their family owned shop in Ang Mo Kio. They assisted their parents entirely from the serving of customers to stock counting. “After helping out in my family owned shop for a couple of years, I felt that ladies footwear in Singapore was plain and basic as compared to other countries. There was no footwear retailer selling fanciful footwear at good pricing. Women in Singapore often have to rely on imported footwear which is expensive and unbefitting. Together with Keith, we introduced this brand – Charles & Keith”. Starting a business is never easy, especially when you are younger than others in the industry. “When we first started,......

Charles

...Amir Suleiman Ms. Pozzebon ENG 3U1 31 May 2011 A breakdown of the Hero in Charles Dickens’s Books The hero is a very important element in a story. Every good novel has one. The essence of the hero is not bravery or nobility, but self-sacrifice. The hero must pay a price to obtain his goal. The hero's journey during a story is a path from the ego, the self, to a new identity which has grown to include the experiences of the story. This path often consists of a division from family or group to a new, unfamiliar world, and finally a return to the ordinary, but now expanded, world. The hero must learn in order to grow. Often the heart of a story is not the barriers, but the new wisdom he gets from a mentor, a lover, or even sometimes a villain. Charles Dickens made note of having an excellent hero in Oliver Twist (Oliver Twist), Hard Times (Stephen Blackpool), and The Great Expectation (Pip). To commence, we will look at Oliver in Oliver Twist. As the child hero of a melodramatic novel of social dispute, Oliver Twist is meant to appeal more to our feelings than to our literary sensibilities. On many levels, Oliver is not a believable character, because although he is raised in corrupt surroundings, his purity and virtue are absolute. In the ten years we know of Oliver Twist he is portrayed as continuously childlike and morally upright, despite the fact that he’s had very little treatment that differs from contempt, violence, or indifference. Oliver is thrown into every......

...Charles Martin in Uganda: What to Do When a Manager Goes Native Question 1: Describe Ugandan cultural attributes that might affect the operations of a foreign company doing business there. Uganda is country, which has a multi ethnic, multi religious and multi language background. From the perspective of a foreign company willing to operate in Uganda the language is a serious if not the main problem because of the different types of languages. Even though English is the official language on that country there a great portion of the population that still speaks indigenous languages such as Bantu and Nilotic. This fact alone, results in a risk to the operations of the company by not being able to communicate with the locals, which result in a serious language barrier problem. So, having employees able to communicate with different people in a diverse set of languages is very important from a business perspective. Another concern is the multi religious background of the country with people practicing many different religions. The company may have to hire employees to work from any religion and also make sure that those belonging to all religious groups are also respected in order to avoid discrimination in the workplace. Also, business in third world countries tends to move slowly, so for example: phone lines may take months to be installed. Additionally the incomes are extremely low and with high payment system. Uganda is considered one of the most corrupted countries......

Charles Lindbergh

...Charles Lindbergh was a man of many accomplishments. In his time, everybody loved him. Charles was well known all over the world. He was a hero, he represented all that could be accomplished in the future. He was a figure for doing what nobody else thought could be done. Lindbergh was one of those people that everyone else wanted to be. Charles Augustus Lindbergh was born in Detroit on February 4, 1902, to Charles Lindbergh, Sr., and Evangeline Land Lodge. Yet, he grew up in a small town in Nebraska. Lindbergh was a whiz with mechanics. By age twelve, he was in charge of driving and fixing the car. In high school, he assembled a tractor from a mail order kit. When he was eighteen he entered the University of Wisconsin to study engineering. He found he was more interested in flying, so after two years of college, he dropped out and became a barnstormer, which was a pilot who performed daredevil stunts at fairs, and airshows. Lindbergh was a favorite among the crowds. People would travel from all different places, even Europe, to come see his daredevil tricks. In 1924 Lindbergh enlisted in the U.S. Army so he could be trained to be a pilot. During this time he was given the nickname;Lucky Lindy'; because he would attempt daredevil stunts with his airplane, and always seem to evade punishment from upper officers. In 1925 he graduated as the top pilot in his class. He soon began working as a mail deliverer between St. Louis and Chicago. ...

Charles Houston

...| Charles Houston Recreation Center | | | Pierre Beattie | 5/17/2015 | Professor Lori Bufka DeVry University Someone a long time ago told me that it takes a village to raise a child. Over the years I have realized that this not only is true, but it has great significance in everyone’s future. There are many obstacles in today’s society where there are failing schools, underpaid teachers, and misinformation to where children are in many ways forgotten. I hope that in the near future there would be more and more adults who will step up to the plate and attempt to lead America’s youth. One such individual is Scott Carter, the leader of the Charles Houston recreation center in Washington, D.C. He is a living example of someone who sees the need for positive adults in the community and wishes to make a positive impact in the lives of not just the young but the old as well. It has come to my attention that the Charles Houston recreation center will be closing its doors in a matter of a couple weeks because the District of Columbia refuses to properly fund the facility because of budget cuts. That means that hundreds of local area youths will no longer have a place that they can call a safe haven when they get out of school or in their leisure time. The Charles Houston recreation center has been around for over 20 years and has over the years formed a basketball and football team. They also hold rally’s where the homeless can get a meal and other special......

Charles 1

...arguments led to Charles dissolving Parliament in 1629 as he claimed ‘No sooner therefore was the Parliament set down but these ill-affected men began to sow and disperse their jealousies, by casting out some glances and doubtful speeches’. Even though finance was a major issue perhaps it was Charles persistence of Royal Prerogative that was the causation of Parliament being dismissed. Charles believed in the divine right of Kings, that he had been appointed by God to rule England at that his authority was absolute and could not be challenged because to challenge him was to challenge God. This meant he no longer needed Parliament leading to the ‘11 year Tyranny’. Financial matters were a reoccurring problem throughout all three Parliamentary sessions. The trouble started in 1625 when only a small amount of subsidies were granted to Charles along with Tonnage and Poundage voted only for 1 year. Tonnage and Poundage was the taxation which English citizens had to pay to fund the Crown. This was extremely unusual as usually Parliament granted Tonnage and Poundage for the whole reign of the Crown. This cautious approach by Parliament was partially down to previous experiences at with the Crown such as Elizabeth 1 financial problems and James 1 extravagance. Charles felt slightly insulted and was not happy that Tonnage and Poundage was not granted for the whole of his reign. This tension was not helped in 1626 when no extra subsidies were granted towards the Crown. Charles took......
