Robber Barrons

...Who were the “Robber Barons?”  How did they work to concentrate wealth and reform capitalism?  How could they be called “Robber Barons” by many, and “Captains of Industry,” by a few? In what ways were they both? Throughout history there have been very important men who have had a big impact on our industries. Without these men we would not have some of the greatest industries we have today. Men like Cornelius Vanderbilt, John Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie. These men were some of the richest men in their times, they each were very successful business men. Cornelius Vanderbilt made his fortune off of steam ships and railroads. John Rockefeller controlled the oil companies. J.P. Morgan was a successful banker and investor whose company J.P. Morgan & co is still around today. Andrew Carnegie took over the steel industry making him one of the richest men in the world when he died. (Zinn Ch 10 & 11) All these men were successful and could be called Captains of Industry but at the same time were also known as Robber Barons. In this essay I will be giving a brief history of each of those men and in what industry he made his fortune. I will also explain how each one had different aspects of their life that made people think of them as Robber Barons. Finally I will talk about how they can be considered to be both Robber Barons and Captains of Industry. The dictionary has two definitions for a Robber Baron. The first is “an American capitalist of the latter......

A Life of a Dependent Woman (a Rose for Emily)

...end, she killed her lover Homer Barron and kept him in her upstairs room. Miss Emily was never independent. The influences from her father made her feel dependent on every single male of only a few throughout her life. She extremely depended on her father, Colonel Sartoris and Homer Barron. Miss Emily was a woman who never learned to be independent. Her father’s dominant behavior completely influenced her whole life badly. It made her become such a male-dependent person. That led to her to deny her father’s death. She didn’t want to pay any taxes because Colonel Sartoris told her that she was able not to. At last she killed Homer in order to prevent his leaving. Emily’s dependency upon her father made her depend on every important man in her life; she tried to keep each of them as close to her as she could. Essay Outline Introduction: The influences from Emily’s father made her feel dependent on every single male of only a few throughout her life: her own father, Colonel Sartoris, Homer Barron.

She loved Homer Barron. They have opposite......

...Emily lost her father at a young age, the only man that she ever knew, and was forced to live a life on her own. Emily had to overcome the death of her father in the eye of the town. The thought of being judged by others after the death of a close relative can be a lot to handle. The town wanted Emily to move on, and when she did so she was judged as well. Loneliness mixed with love drove Emily to the end; she was not a crazy, nor deranged elderly lady. She was deserted and in grief, she killed Homer Barron only so she would not have to face the darkness of being alone all over again. Emily did not have any one to talk to after her father’s death which forced her to keep all of the hurt and pain inside. Homer Barron showed her love and then took it away after he abandoned her. “That was two years after her father's death and a short time after her sweetheart--the one we believed would marry her --had deserted her…” The thought of being left alone drove Emily to kill Homer Barron and that she did. This is why I have come to the conclusion that Emily killed Homer out of wanting to be loved and comforted. The rumors of Homer being gay did not affect Emily, I don’t believe any of the comments the town made affected her neither. The thought of being alone once again led to the iron- gray strand of hair next to a corpse....

A Rose for Emily

...father held great pride in their home and it ties into the fact that Emily is trying to keep the house how it was originally to preserve its beauty as her had it. Throughout the two year illicit relationship between Homer Barron and Miss Emily the town awaited the day when Homer Barron would leave Miss Emily because their relationship “was a disgrace to the the town and a bad example to the young people” (Faulkner) but Emily outsmarted all of them (Scherting). Emily connected with Homer Barron, he became the replacement of her father, he was now the object in which Emily could relieve herself of and she couldn’t bare the fact that he would leave her. Emily poisoned Homer Barron, concealed his body in an upstairs room and secluded herself so the town couldn’t take him away like they had taken her father years earlier. (Scherting) ! ! When dealing with the changes of the new world the past becomes a comfort. Unable to bear the hardships of life Emily Grierson goes into hiding. The death of her father, the end of painting classes, and the death of Homer Barron each time a life is taken or there is a new arrival about to take change Emily Grierson secludes herself in her home and uses it as a shield, because her home is where her protector lies. Mr. Grierson/Homer Barron together one man in Emily’s head, dead, yet in her mind she thinks them still alive, await for her and keep her company.

The Affect That Emily Grierson Has of the Old South and the New South

...said, “will you accuse a lady to her face of smelling bad?”(Faulkner 550) No one told Miss Grierson about the smell because of the respect that they had for her. They just decided to go out one night and put lime around Miss Grierson house. The death of Homer Barron was also related to Miss Grierson always getting her way. When Homer Barron and Miss Grierson got together everyone thought that she would change. Although it looked like she had changed, she really had not changed at all. Homer Barron was a foreman from the north who came to Jefferson to pave the roads. Miss Emily Grierson was crazy about him because it was the first time in her life that she had a boyfriend. She would do everything with Homer Barron because he made her happy. They would even take Sunday afternoon rides down the streets of Jefferson. The people of the town would watch as they made their way down the streets. They said that Emily “carried her head high enough, even when they believed she had fallen”((Kriewald 3). Emily always demanded more than the other citizens because she always got her way. The perfect example of Emily demanding ways was when Homer Barron left her for a while. Emily did not like this because she though Homer Barron would never come back. When he finally came back, Miss Grierson killed him because she did not want him to leave her again. Emily demanding ways lead to this killing, and nobody in the whole town did anything about it. This mystery really shows how......

Methodology for Emh

...Buy and Sell Recommendations We examined the effect of Barrons’ buy, sell and hold recommendations on stock prices, using the Brown and Warner (1985) standard event-study method to compute the daily abnormal returns. We used a two-step procedure to compute the average daily abnormal returns with stock price data from CRSP. First, we estimated the alpha and beta coefficients of each firm by using a single-factor market model. We used the days from –301 to –46 as the estimation window for this purpose. Second, we computed the abnormal return by subtracting a firm’s expected daily return from its observed return. We calculated the cumulative abnormal returns by adding up the abnormal returns over the periods from days -30 to 0, days -5 to 0, days 0 to 1, days 0 to 5, and days 2 to 30, where day 0 represents the next trading day following the Saturday when the Barrons’ recommendation was published. These abnormal returns are estimated for buy, sell and hold recommendations. ------------------------------------------------- 1.2 Portfolio Performance In order to evaluate the average performance of recommendations published by Barrons we assembled a Barrons portfolio by equally weighting their recommendations for 374 days starting January 3, 2012 till June 28, 2013. We used two approaches to do this. First, we added a new security into the portfolio whenever there was a buy recommendation published for it in Barrons. The security remained in the portfolio for 6 months......

...1. What constitutes an actual expectation of privacy? There are two types of expectations of privacy: • Subjective expectation of privacy – a certain individual's opinion that a certain location or situation is private; varies greatly from person to person • Objective, legitimate, reasonable expectation of privacy – An expectation of privacy generally recognized by society Examples of places where a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy are a person's residence or hotel room[1] and public places which have been specifically provided by businesses or the public sector in order to ensure privacy, such as public restrooms, private portions of jailhouses,[2] or a phone booth.[3] In general, one cannot have a reasonable expectation of privacy in things held out to the public. A well-known example is that there are no privacy rights in garbage left for collection in a public place.[2] Other examples include: pen registers that record the numbers dialed from particular telephones;[4] conversations with others, though there could be a Sixth Amendment violation if the police send an individual to question a defendant who has already been formally charged;[5] a person's physical characteristics, such as voice and handwriting;[6] what is observed pursuant to aerial surveillance that is conducted in public navigable airspace not using equipment that unreasonably enhances the surveying government official's vision;[7][8] anything in open fields (e.g., a barn);[9] smells that...

Literary Analysis of "A Rose for Emily"

...made Miss Emily the talk of the town, making sure she was constantly being secluded. They eventually stopped sending their children to her China painting lessons, and pressured her to the point where she killed her lover in order to feel she had not lost her dignity. Essentially, they played a significant role in the death of Homer Barron, ruining their relationship with talk of disapproval. The townspeople could have possibly been well informed of their action, which can lead the to fact that it was not chosen to investigate Homer’s disappearance or prosecute Emily for that matter. The town antagonizes Miss Emily, though there may be moments of genuine kindness, the animosity is clear. Another likely antagonist could be Miss Emily’s father and Homer Barron himself. Miss Emily’s father drove potential suitors away with his controlling nature. Faulkner’s description of him in the doorway with the whip and Miss Emily in the background disturbingly creates a clear indication that Mr. Grierson was a man of ruling demeanor. This led Miss Emily to possess a childlike nature and to live the life of a “hermit” so long after the death of her father. Homer Barron was, questionably, Miss Emily’s beau. He engaged in activities most would consider courting, indicating he was not a man to marry anytime soon but failing to make clear to Miss Emily. His actions led the townspeople to gossip, leading to the final ruin of Miss Emily’s reputation. Perhaps though, Miss Emily did not want to......

Throughout this module we have examined various different accepted different stages in managing our programs, such as those presented by the NYS Project Management Guidebook, Barron & Barron as well as Johnathan Carr. These are all discussed in some form or fashion on PMHut.com which is well-respected for providing project management information. Based on my own personal experience with project management I will use the phases as presented by Johnathan Carr primarily; however, I will also indicate the terms used by the other sources and how they correlate to the phase I am referring to. These phases are: Concept Phase, Planning Phase, Development Phase, Implementation Phase and Closeout Phase. Also, within each phase I will describe the parts of my household move plan as they apply.

However, in order to achieve these results it clearly requires active participation from everyone on the team and clear communication skills. Most project managers, if not all of them will tell you that communication is the most important aspect of their job and if not done properly then accountability is not likely to happen. While this key aspect is true, there are also other components of project management cycle that are often ignored that also take away from maintaining effective accountability. For this assignment we’ll discuss ways for the project manager to maintain this control and how accountability feeds into the overall success of the project. We’ll also cover some counterpoints to the arguments to see that even when the project manager plays...

...Tragic Times In Salem Salem Witch Trials The Salem Witch Trials was a horrific event that occurred in colonial Massachusetts between the years 1692 and 1693. More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft and 20 ended up being executed. Some researchers believe that there may have been other current events that were affecting the trials during the same time period. Throughout this research paper I will explain the Salem Witch Trials and show the research I have done in terms of the events that may have a connection to the event, along with other factors that may have influenced the Salem Witch Trials. In the late 16 hundreds in colonial North America, the supernatural was highly considered to be a part of everyday life. Many people were strong believers that Satan was present and active on Earth. These beliefs were first formed in Europe during the fifteenth century and later spread throughout North America. Peasants were known for often using a particular kind of witchcraft to help enhance their crops, and to benefit farming and agriculture. Over time, the idea of witchcraft transformed into a very evil act. It started to became associated with demons and evil spirits. From 1560 to 1670, witchcraft persecutions became common as superstitions became associated with the devil. Through out the colonies, the most common cause for a witch hunt was caused by young girls having a mysterious screaming fit; they would often be diagnosed as having been......

A Crazy Emily

...quite possible that she used the poison in killing Homer Barron. Lastly, her craziness lies beyond her and in her house. Normally, people consider their appearances with high regards. In layman’s term, they do not want to be avoided. So, in order to do this, they take care of themselves and their properties. Some psychiatrists check if a person is crazy or not, based on one’s appearance. Apparently, for Emily, smell did not matter. There was a time her house had an unusual odor. Some people complained about this to the mayor, but seeing there was nothing they can do, they just let it go. After quite some time, the complaints grew, so they tried to find a way. The mayor, thinking it was a preposterous idea to tell her at her face, made another way. They sneaked into her house, one night, and sprinkled lime in the places where it stank. Emily was there, watching. She seemed not to care at them at all as if, she saw people do that all the time. She just stared. Emily had gone through so much. Because she had experienced many things, her mental ability had failed her. The possibility that she is crazy is bigger than the possibility of having necrophilia. As we know, her father had driven away her suitors leaving her with no one, and Homer Barron never really loved her. This may have caused her to kill Homer Barron. Sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures, and for Emily, that was her desperate measure. Homer Barron had led her to a crooked patch in the middle of......
