- Joe Oliver was born on December 19, 1885, in Abend, Louisiana. He moved to New Orleans in his youth and is often credited with being born in that city. During his childhood, he lost the use of one of his eyes in an accident. This medical condition did not diminish his musical ability in the least.
- His ribs poked out of his skin and his stomach looked like an empty cave. His eyes were pushed into his head way more than most people, the dark rings circling his made his eyes look like they were going to pop out any second.
- Oliver Twist, a poor, innocent orphan boy, stands out in this story as the main character but it is the supporting characters that allow this novel of much content to develop a much more satisfying and believable theme. With “Good V.S. Evil” as one of the major conflicts, in such categories are the secondary characters found as well.
- Halfway through the book, Bumble changes. When he marries Mrs. Corney, he loses authority. She makes all the decisions. The Artful Dodger – A talented pickpocket, recruiter, cheat and wit.
- Perhaps the reason why these two novels share some of the same qualities is because theyboth reflect painful experiences which occurred in Dickens past. During his childhood,Charles Dickens suffered much abuse from his parents.1 This abuse is often expressed in hisnovels.
- Although Dickens wrote Oliver Twist while he was finishing The Pickwick Papers and editing Bentley’s Miscellany, he managed to make the novel remarkable for it’s clarity of purpose and it’s sustained intensity(The Cambridge guide to Literature in English; Ian Ousby).
- Wilhelm Fried was born in Hungary of German-Jewish parents, and brought to America while still an infant in 1879. As William Fox, he would preside over a major Hollywood film studio of the teens and '20s — one destined to reach even greater heights in the '30s and '40s as 20th Century-Fox.
- The years between 1640 and 1660 witnessed in England a greater outpouring of printed material than the country had seen since the first printing press had begun operating in the 1470s.1 The breakdown of government and Church censorship in the early 1640s was almost total until the mid-1650s when Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protector reimposed some controls.
- At these clubs is where he met Joe “King” Oliver. “King” Oliver was one of Armstrong’s favorite musicians and the man acted as father to Louis. Oliver began to teach Louis how to play the cornet and the trumpet.
- Born in August 1901 (not Independence Day 1900, as he was always told and believed), Louis Armstrong sang on the New Orleans streets in a boyhood quartet and in 1913 was admitted to the Colored Waifs’ home for firing a gun into the air.
- Born in August 1901 (not Independence Day 1900, as he was always told and believed), Louis Armstrong sang on the New Orleans streets in a boyhood quartet and in 1913 was admitted to the Colored Waifs’ home for firing a gun into the air. In the home he learned the trumpet, and within four years was challenging every trumpet king in his home town, from Freddie Keppard to Joe Oliver, his first father-figure, whom he replaced in Kid Ory’s band in 1919.
- Revolutions, whether in arts or matter of state, create a new world only by sacrificing the old. By the late twenties, improvisation had expanded to the extent of improvisation we ordinarily expect from jazz today.
- In Oliver Twist, Dickens shows that only Oliver remains untainted by evil despite the ill-treatment he receives, and the darkness and corruption that surround him chiefly as a result of his goodness and “sturdy spirit” (Oliver Twist, Harmondsworth: Penguin books, 1974: 49, hereafter referred to as OT).
- Louis Armstrong was the most influential person in jazz’s history. He contributed greatly to the growth of jazz and was able to play in a variety of ways. His amazing and interesting life came from his straight talent for the music. He deserved every bit of fame he got simply because he was an incredible musician.
- more than half a century. Marilyn s life demonstrated the effects of her personal struggles as well as the triumph of her spirit, a part of her that continues to survive alongside her image as the legendary Hollywood diva. Her career as an actress spanned 16 years.
- Most people go through life with their eyes closed, so to speak, never stopping to see the beautiful world around them. However, the people that do stop and observe the beauty often do great things with the knowledge from their experience. Two people that have done just that are Gary Snyder and Mary Oliver.
- On January 14, 1896, at England's Royal Photographic Society, American-born photographer and inventor Birt Acres held a public screening of motion pictures he'd made in 1895, using a camera he'd designed with Robert William Paul (based on the Edison Kinetoscope); Acres' films included Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race and Rough Sea At Dover.
- Born in Chicago and raised in Woodbury, New Jersey, just across the state line from Philadelphia, Patti’s mother, Beverly, was a jazz singer cum waitress. Her father, Grant, worked at the Honeywell plant; she was the oldest of four siblings: her sisters Linda and Kimberly (the latter plays mandolin on Gone Again’s “Ravens,”), and brother Todd.
- Born on August 4, 1901, in the poorest section of New Orleans, Armstrong grew up with his grandparents due to his parents’ separation. On January 1, 1913 he made a mistake which turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to him. At a New Year’s celebration in downtown New Orleans, Louis Armstrong, also known as “Satchmo” and “Satch”, fired a pistol into the air and was placed in the Colored Waifs’ Home.
- President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and only one man was arrested in the hours following the assassination. Was Lee Harvey Oswald the lone assassin, or a just a decoy as he claimed? Oswald was set up from the day the plot was formed as he embodied the perfect scapegoat in an elaborate plan involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Mafia, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secret Service, the Dallas Police, Lyndon Johnson, the Military, and the Texas Oilmen–they were involved in a cover up.
