John Jay Info

..."John Jay." Encyclopedia of World Biography. 2004. 2 Dec. 2012<>. John Jay's tenacity helped him survive the sectional battles and placed him in the inner councils of the Federalist party. As chief justice, he gave the Supreme Court a national approach under the new Constitution. John Jay was born on Dec. 12, 1745, in New York; he was the eighth child in a wealthy merchant family. Descended from French-Dutch stock and reared in the Huguenot tradition, Jay had few of the sentimental ties with England that made some Americans ambivalent in their allegiance after 1765. He graduated from King's College (later Columbia University) and trained in the law by a 5-year apprenticeship.  In 1778 he was chosen president of the Continental Congress.  Jay explained the commercial treaty to Congress in August but did not mention the military alliance Gardoqui also sought. Congress, voting along sectional lines, approved the pact, but by less than the required two-thirds majority. Tempers on both sides were heated, and the matter was unresolved when the Constitution was sent to the states for ratification. He joined Alexander Hamilton and James Madison in supplying articles for New York newspapers in support of the Constitution under the pen name "Publius." Of these Federalist papers, Jay wrote Publius 2, 3, 4, 5, and 63.  Meanwhile, George Washington had prevailed on Jay to accept the position of chief justice of the Supreme Court.......

...CASE STUDY: THE BLUE SPIDER PROJECT “This is impossible! Just totally impossible! Ten months ago I was sitting on top of the world. Upper-level management considered me one of the best, if not the best engineer in the plant. Now look at me! I have bags under my eyes, I haven’t slept soundly in the last six months, and here I am, cleaning out my desk. I’m sure glad they gave me back my old job in engineering. I guess I could have saved myself a lot of grief and aggravation had I not accepted the promotion to project manager.” History Gary Anderson had accepted a position with Parks Corporation right out of college. With a PhD in mechanical engineering, Gary was ready to solve the world’s most traumatic problems. At first, Parks Corporation offered Gary little opportunity to do pure research, which he eagerly wanted to undertake. However, things soon changed. Parks grew into a major electronics and structural design corporation during the big boom of the late fifties and early sixties when the Department of Defence (DoD) contracts were plentiful. Parks Corporation grew from a handful of engineers to a major DoD contractor, employing some 6,500 people. During the recession of the late sixties, money became scarce and major layoffs resulted in lowering the employment level to 2,200 employees. At that time, Parks decided to get out of the RD business and compete as a low-cost production facility while maintaining ane engineering organisation solely to......

...The History of the Blues * In my Assignment I will be mostly taking about the ways that the blues has influenced culture. So what did the blues influence…? Everything. The blues influenced nearly every genre of music that came after it. Jazz in all of its various styles and flavors. From just a basic 12bars you get everything that you need in order to play great music. It’s not like without the blues we would not have any current music actually it’s a lot like that. The influence of blues can even be seen in the classical music of the later Romantic period as well as in various aspects of Contemporary classical music. Literally every style of music that’s come out in the past eighty or more years has once or a few times borrowed something from the blues. To think the whole world would of changed if there was not the blues, or slavery for that matter. To think we would not even have big band music or loud electric guitars, or a guy going yo yo into a microphone. * When you think of the blues, you think about misfortune, betrayal and regret. You lose your job, you get the blues. Your mate falls out of love with you, you get the blues. Your dog dies, you get the blues. * While blues lyrics often deal with personal adversity, the music itself goes far beyond self-pity. The blues is also about overcoming hard luck, saying what you feel, ridding yourself of frustration, letting your hair down, and simply having fun. The best blues is visceral, cathartic, and......

...Monique Summers Professor Susan Watters Fashion 245 March 9, 2012 Blue Jays Designers in the swimwear industry have been driven to create more elaborate and comfortable swimsuits due the growing trend of health and fitness. Not to mention that Americans are taking more and more extended vacations each year. According to Global Industry Analysis, “swimwear and beachwear are projected to exceed $17.6 billion by the year 2015.” However, swimwear is one of the toughest items to sell. However, I have created a retail store that specializes in high quality fabrics and focus on customers having a pleasurable shopping experience. According to Online Resource Directory, many women dread shopping for swimsuits. In order to combat the negative feelings that women have against swimsuits, my retail store expertise will be in quality and fit. I designed a retail store called Blue Jays that will drastically help to change women opinions about swimwear. Blue Jays will sell swimwear that flaunts a women’s figure in a flattering way. Blue Jays main goal of its store is to sell garments of superior quality and to make sure consumers leave satisfied. Sourcing from great manufactures who meet our company standards will help achieve our first goal. Our company only sells swimsuits made from lycra, spandex, and tricot. The tricot fabric helps our swimwear to be lightweight, soft, durable, and shrink resistant. It’s also a fabric that wholes it shape very well. The......

...Finding Light through the Darkness In James Baldwin’s short story, “Sonny’s Blues”, the narrator which is Sonny’s brother, James attempts to understand the life of his younger brother Sonny. Through trials and tribulations both brothers see the light through the darkness that surrounds both of their lives. From childhood to adulthood, both brothers go through experiences, which would have an everlasting effect on their lives. The story is set in Harlem, New York City approximately after the Korean War. The brothers' military service plays an important role in the socio-historical context of the story. The narrator refers to being "home on leave from the army" during the war; he remarks that his father "died suddenly, during a drunken weekend in the middle of the war, when Sonny was fifteen", and he informs the reader that both he and Sonny served in the military. It is important to notice and understand these references to the military service of the brothers. The characters in "Sonny's Blues" reflect this tendency: As a teenager, Sonny yearns to enlist in the army or navy because it would take him away from the "killing streets" of Harlem and give him the opportunity to get a college education on the GI Bill. The narrator, too, has struggled in spite of his military service to his country to attain success and safety at home. He fought the war, returned home to become an algebra teacher, and a productive member of the middle class, and yet because of......

Jay-Z was very intrigued, he had never seen anything like it. Jay remembered, “It was like watching some kind of combat, but he was alone in the center.

How a Jay Came to Life

...How a Jay Came to Life Mark Twain effectively uses personification in his story Baker’s Blue Jay Yarn, to give animals a humorous personality. Personification is the attributing of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed or believed by some to belong only to humans) to animals or non-living things, phenomena, material states and objects or abstract concepts. In the story, Twain uses personification to tell a very entertaining story, giving the jay a personality and a distinct manner of speech. He also compares the jay to other animals and shows the differences between them. In the story the jay is the best speaker in the animal kingdom. He is very proud and likes to show off his talent whenever possible. He not only uses good grammar, but can also use comparisons and metaphors. The blue jay can put whatever he feels into words. And not any commonplace words, either, but talk straight out of a book, full of metaphors. And you will never see a blue jay stuck for a word. Nobody ever did. The author gives the blue jay a very human personality. In the story it says the jay has no principles. A jay will lie, a jay will steal. A jay can cry, a jay can laugh, a jay can feel shame, a jay can reason and plan and discuss, a jay likes gossip and scandal, a jay has got a sense of humor. For instance, once the bird realized he was trying to fill a house with acorns he burst out laughing. Furthermore, a jay knows when he is an ass just as well as you do- maybe better. In......

Jay Congers

...Compromise Brings Benefits Jay Conger’s article The Necessary Art of Persuasion presents excellent strategies on how to become a better persuader. To reach any goal, business people need support and cooperation, but many fail to realize the contribution compromise brings to a “debate”: it motivates the other party to consider the opposite point of view. Conger’s insistence that compromise be part of a persuasive strategy recognizes the value of a win-win mentality in business. Business is rarely a zero-sum game. Many novice businessmen/women miss this point. The novice believes logic, persistence and dispute change opinions. Conger says as much. But they are not enough to make people change their opinion or position because more pressure often increases the audience’s resistance to the message. Conger fails to make this point: the more insistent the speaker, the more resistant the audience, logic and facts notwithstanding. At this point, compromise offers a logical alternative. An astute persuader provides a dialogue with the audience which reduces resistance and softens the listener to be more receptive to an idea. “Dialogue” is Conger’s main point in reaching an intended audience. Through dialogue, “wants” and “needs” are discovered leading a good listener to clues on how to turn the other’s position – and if not, how to reach a reasonable compromise. Too often business parties see “persuasion” as an adversarial exercise listing demands rather than attempting to......

...Blue is the colour between violet and green on the optical spectrum of visible light. Human eyes perceive blue when observing light with a wavelength between 450 and 495 nanometres. Blues with a higher frequency and thus a shorter wavelength gradually look more violet, while those with a lower frequency and a longer wavelength gradually appear more green. Pure blue, in the middle, has a wavelength of 470 nanometres. In painting and traditional colour theory, blue is one of the three primary colours of pigments, along with red and yellow, which can be mixed to form a wide gamut of colours. Red and blue mixed together form violet, blue and yellow together form green. Blue is also a primary colour in the RGB colour model, used to create all the colours on the screen of a television or computer monitor. The modern English word blue comes from Middle English bleu or blewe, from the Old French bleu, a word of Germanic origin, related to the Old High German word blao.[2] The clear sky and the deep sea appear blue because of an optical effect known as Rayleigh scattering. When sunlight passes through the atmosphere, the blue wavelengths are scattered more widely by the oxygen and nitrogen molecules, and more blue comes to our eyes. Rayleigh scattering also explains blue eyes; there is no blue pigment in blue eyes. Distant objects appear more blue because of another optical effect called atmospheric perspective. Blue has been used for art, decoration and as a clothing dye since......
