Louis D. Brandeis was a United State Supreme Court Justice that fought against monopolies and big business and was a tireless advocate for free speech. Brandeis was best known for publishing his famous article in the Harvard Law Journal, for publishing his book about the banking industry, for upholding laws that protect the publics’ privacy and the freedom of expression and as the first Jewish Supreme Court Justice.
Louis Brandeis was born in Kentucky on November 13, 1856 to Adolph Brandeis and Frederika Dembitz. His parents were Bohemian Jews that had a strong belief in culture and encouraged Brandeis’ education. Consequently, Brandeis graduated high school at the young age of 14. He first attended college in Kentucky but later transferred to Germany when his father had to relocate. He went on to study at Harvard Law School and graduated in 1875 as valedictorian at the age of 20.
Brandeis started practicing law in St. Louis, Missouri and after a short time, he moved back to Boston to start a law firm with former Harvard classmate, Samuel Warren. The firm of “Warren and Brandeis” spent much of their time arguing against monopolies and large corporations and advocating for free speech. Together Brandeis and Warren published a famous article in The Harvard Law Review, “The Right to Privacy.” This article argued that private citizens should have the right to be left alone and the press should not be permitted to publish their photos or the details of their lives without their permission. Brandeis and Warren were angered by the media attention focused on the lavish parties the Warren family threw throughout the 1880s. They wrote, "Gossip is no longer the resource of the idle and of the vicious, but has become a trade, which is pursued with industry as well as effrontery.” Brandeis and Warren also 2 stated that during the first 100 years of the…...

The Zionist Conversion of Louis D. Brandeis

...The Zionist Conversion of Louis D. Brandeis Although it has been a necessity of Jewish consciousness to think that the rise of a modern political Zionist movement can be blamed to the aggressive anti-Semitism suffered by the European Jews, this does not provide an adequate explanation. The entire history of the Jews can be defined by the way in which they suffered persecution under the brutal hands of others, proving that anti-Semitism was not a rare occurrence unique to the Jews of the nineteenth century. Therefore, this whole idea of Zionism being created to retaliate against anti-Semitism gives out the wrong message to the world and especially to the Jewish community. The Zionist movement gave the movement “a chance to secure Theodore Herzl’s dream—international sanction of a Jewish homeland in Palestine” (p. 515). Thus, the discovery of the transformation of the Jewish world instead of the development of the modern world as we know it is crucial to the understanding of the maturity of Zionism and the Zionist conversion of Louis D. Brandeis. Ever since the Six-Day War of 1967 the support for the State of Israel became such an important factor. Yet, more important however to the American Jewish community, because ever since the 1900 until after World War I, the demand to Americanize was at an all time high. Therefore everyone, including Jews and non-Jews were expected and forced to abandon any ethnic alliances or traditions in order support and stand up for America.......

Joe Louis

...Joe Louis was a man of great stature, a role model, and, for his time, he was what the black community needed him to be. It is nearly impossible to take the character of today’s athletes, like Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant, and compare them to the reflection of boxer Joe Louis. Joe Louis began his credible journey on June 19, 1936 during the times when America was struggling with racial equality he won his first of 27 fights. However, having a black heavyweight champion meant the black community would move upward and be successful and just as productive as white America. Although Joe Louis was not the first black heavyweight champ, he was still highly favored amongst his people and intended to execute the necessary duties to deliver a message demanding equal opportunity to whites from the black community. Louis did not doubt that he could win. To be a contender for a heavyweight title Louis had to first defeat Max Schmeling. People paraded and praised Louis months before the actual fight. They truly believed in this man of color and when in the boxing ring Joe Louis would always represent the African American fighting the whites for equality. The pressure was thick but maybe the community and Louis were over-confident. No one assumed he would have difficulty in the bout but with his lack of training Joe Louis experienced the greatest upset after being defeated in 12 rounds. Joe Louis’ defeat represented African American defeat entirely. When he went down “all of the hopes...

...2. The strength of Louis Vuitton is in its strong, established brand image and international presence. Brand name is what allows the company to de-commoditize luxury products and extract premium from the market. Throughout its history Louis Vuitton has developed a reputation for providing its customers both quality and unique product image. Louis Vuitton products distinguish themselves on five key traits: high prices, excellent quality, aesthetic and emotional value, rich brand history and uniqueness. Solid business model and rapid expansion overseas proved to be a great platform to help establish a high-end international brand image. Ability to control its distribution channels allows Louis Vuitton to capture value added instead of giving it to the middlemen such as suppliers and retailers and to deliver the best quality goods to the customers. Owning shops gives Vuitton control over level of stock, presentation and pricing. Additionally, LVMH is the most highly diversified luxury goods company. Even though LVMH is an acronym of three brands: Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, the company owns over 50 brands: 13 apparel and leather goods brands, 20 wines and spirits, 6 retail brands, 10 perfumes, 5 watches and jewelry. This multi-brand strategy that LVMH adopted is another company’s strength. Opportunities exist for Louis Vuitton to continue with its current strategies of establishing large branches worldwide. Louis Vuitton products are designed for wealthy individuals, who......

...October 14, 2013 Louis Vuitton Case Study 1. What has made Louis Vuitton’s business model successful in the Japanese luxury market? Louis Vuitton’s business model in Japan is truly extraordinary in the way they use product, price, place, and promotion. The company was founded on producing products of the highest quality by Louis Vuitton Malletier in 1854. LV continuous effort to innovate their product through partnerships with local artist to create limited product lines and never deviate from the founding father’s vision is directly related to LV’s success. Louis Vuitton’s product image in the consumers mind is so important that they are taken huge measures in preventing counterfeiting of their product globally. The next portion of the LV’s business model is price. For a majority of company’s price is determined all by market demand and can fluctuate in order to stimulate or maintain consumer demand. For LV it is different, their products are priced unnecessarily high all the time despite what the market demand is. They do this because LV products are luxurious status symbols and in this sense offer absolute value out of a purchase. If the company prices their item any lower than what the current price is then the LV label will hold its social value. LV’s choice of place is unique because they only sell from a very small number of stores of which are mostly owned by the company. This is unique because traditionally an increase and sales can directly...

Louis Armstrong

...   Louis Armstrong American Jazz Icon Louis Armstrong (1901-1971) one of the renown fathers of American jazz music. One cannot think of American jazz and not think of the huge smile and the puffy cheeks of the one affectionately called “Satchmo”. Few can hear the songs “Hello Dolly!” (Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart – 20th Century fox 1964) and “What a Wonderful World” (Geroge Weiss & Bob Theile 1968) not hear the deep raspy voice of this beloved icon. With his incredible energy and joy for life, few would believe his humble and heartbreaking beginnings. What made him famous was his inner strength, drive, openness and the ability to learn from others. Humble and Tumultuous Beginnings Louis Daniel Armstrong was born August 4, 1901 in New Orleans to William Armstrong and Mary Est Albert. His father William Armstrong was a boiler stoker in a turpentine plant and left him shortly after he was born. His mother was a laundress and part-time prostitute who drifted in and out of his life (Tirro, 2000). The first five years of his life he lived with his grandmother Josephine and was later returned to his mothers care. Back in his mother’s care Armstrong lived in a cabaret district where he was exposed to the up and coming jazz music. In 1913 Armstrong was arrested for shooting a gun off during a New Years Eve celebration and sent to the New Orleans Colored Waifs’ Home for boys. Her in a disciplined environment he was given formal music instruction....

Louis Riel

...Louis Riel Lana Forsberg 11172571 Native Studies 107 Swapna Padmana November 19, 2014 Louis Riel is one of the most influential citizens in not only Metis history but also in Canadian history. Riel’s story shows society that life is a battle of controversy when trying to gain the rights and freedom that you are deserved. Although Louis has inspired a lot of people, he has also caused a lot of hatred and pain because of his actions. Many people consider him to be a hero but on the other hand others see him to be a killer and a mad man. A person’s actions can affect the way people view them for the rest of their lives and in Riel’s case he is a prime subject to this. Riel led the Metis through a historical rebellion and throughout this rebellion made it sane for scholars and historians to view him as a hero but also a victim in Canadian history. In 1844, Louis Riel was born into the Red River Settlement, which now is considered Manitoba. Louis Riel grew up around the time when the west was opening up and a lot of different ethnicities were migrating into Manitoba. This caused issues for the Metis because the Metis people were offered little education and food sources started going scarce. The Metis were considered to be half-breeds and eventually there was an account of starvation and mass hunger throughout the area. Even though this was all happening during Riels pre-adulenscent years, he was one of the few people that were able to get education and......

Louis Armstrong

...Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong, ‘Satchmo’ being his nickname, is a name that is known worldwide. He made a name for himself, not only with his music, but his personality and aura in a holistic sense. Through display of his uniqueness and unapologetic independence, Armstrong’s success and influence in the music world helped develop the genre of jazz and changed its traditional norm forever. Louis Armstrong came into the world August 4, 1901 in the Story Ville district of Louisiana. He grew up in an unstable home with an absent father and mother struggling to support him through means of prostitution. Armstrong had to look to contribute to the family income only in the fifth grade. He was recruited by a Jewish family to take care of some tasks for a small pay. In December of 1912, he was arrested after shooting a gun at a New Year’s Eve celebration and was placed in the Colored Waifs Home for Boys. (louisarmstrongfoundation.org) It was there that Armstrong picked up the love for music. He embarked on investing in his newfound talent after taking on cornet lessons during his stay at the boys’ home. (biography.com) He left the home in 1914 with a passionate and determined heart for music. As Armstrong began to perform with numerous musical groups in the 1920s, he began to experiment with the extended solo in his music. This would transform the jazz world forever.

...challenges of Louis Vuitton, the leading European luxury sector multinational firm, in Japan, the second largest economy in the world. The case illustrates the business strategy of Louis Vuitton in an important market, taking into account the unique features of brand management, and integrating culture and consumer behaviour in Japan. In the last decade, Japan has been Louis Vuitton’s most profitable market, representing almost half of its profits, but it seems that the global economic crisis has resulted in a decline in sales. Other European brands in the luxury and fashion sectors have also been generating one third of their profits from Japan. Facing a weak economy and a shift in consumer preferences, Louis Vuitton has been adapting its unique strategy in the Japanese market, taking into account consumer behaviour patterns. The days of relying on a logo and charging a high price seem to be gone as there is more interest in craftsmanship and value for money. To promote sales, the company has had to launch less expensive collections made with cheaper materials. The brand has also been opening stores in smaller cities, where the lure of the logo still works. Louis Vuitton may be French, but Japan has become a land full of Louis Vuitton lovers. Over the years, Japanese consumers have demonstrated fascination with and passion for the iconic brand. What have been the keys to Louis Vuitton’s......

Joe Louis

...Jessica Junquet Thursday, October 30th, 2014 History Joe Louis Joe Louis: American Hero Betrayed Joe Louis was a symbol of hope for white and mostly black Americans in this country. This image that Joe created did not just happen in a day, it took years and hundreds of matches. He was one of eight black children who did not receive any education and preformed manual jobs. He was a hard worker who earned enough money to take violin lessons. Yet, it was not violin lessons he was attending it was boxing lessons. Louis was not born with the skills of a boxer. He had to work extremely hard to achieve what he did. His first fight he was knocked down seven times, but still remained to get up. His first manager, John Roxboro thought he was making a solid investment with Louis. As his career was beginning to start up he was faced with rules in order to participate. He was not aloud to take a picture with a white woman, he must be humble, and if he were to win a fight he was to not raise his arms in success as for it may start a riot. Basically, he was trained to act white. 1934 was the year to change it all. Louis won his first twelve fights in a row and ten of those fights were by knockout. Louis started to get very respectable at boxing; he won twenty-two fights without defeat, which started to raise attention to the black community. This was during the time of the depression. Louis was starting to create something for his community to believe in. As he became more......

...concern for Louis Vuitton’s stock in the near term. v  Louis Vuitton is undertaking a transformation strategy to evolve into a global lifestyle brand anchored in accessories. However, we believe this transformation will take at least a few more quarters to reap the desired results. v  Increased private label offerings by wholesale customers also increase the competition for Louis Vuitton.  BARGAINING POWER OF CUSTOMERS: LOW v  Louis Vuitton sells through both, the direct-to-consumer channel and the wholesale channel. The direct channel, which includes Louis Vuitton operated stores and e-commerce sales accounted for around 89% of its total sales in fiscal 2012. v  Since wholesale customers account for only around 10% of the total sales, we believe their bargaining power is limited. v  We think the bargaining power of end-customers is moderate. Louis Vuitton has positioned itself as an exclusive luxury brand and enjoys strong brand recognition due to its high quality products. v  We believe that the customers’ bargaining power will remain low in the future as Louis Vuitton’s efforts to reinvigorate its brand appeal will be offset by rising competition in the market. THREAT OF NEW ENTRANTS: LOW                               v  To start up a new brand, significant capital expenditure is required for marketing and floor space. v  Brand recognition and loyalty are among the main factors that drive middle-to-high income earners towards luxury companies such as Louis......

...In 1926, Louis' family joined the African-American migration from the rural South to the urban North. They settled in Detroit and that was where he grew up. As a teenager he worked odd jobs and began boxing with neighborhood kids. Louis used the 50 cents a week his mother gave him for violin lessons to rent a locker at the Brewster Recreation Center, where he began a successful amateur boxing career. John Roxborough, the illegal numbers betting king in Detroit's black ghetto, decided to sponsor Louis's professional career. He enlisted the help of Julian Black, a Chicago speakeasy owner and numbers operator, and they moved Louis to Chicago to train with Jack Blackburn, a former lightweight boxer and skilled trainer who had already taken two white fighters to world championships in lower weight divisions. Blackburn patiently taught Louis a fundamental style of boxing that emphasized balanced but unspectacular footwork, a strong left jab, counterpunching, and throwing combination punches in rapid sequence. Until his death in 1942, Blackburn ensured that Louis ran six miles a day, sparred with discipline, and maintained his physical superiority and confidence against all challengers. By March 1935, Louis had won 18 professional fights and was bumping up against the barrier of segregation. Denied economic opportunity and political power, African Americans were invisible in America's emerging media age. With the exception of occasional tokens in track and field and college......
