Jack the Ripper

...Jack the Ripper was one of the most famous and renowned killers in history. Even though he was not the first serial killer, he was the first killer to strike on a metropolis setting. Jack the Ripper was in his prime at a time when the media had a strong control over society and society had as a whole was becoming much more literate. Jack started his killing campaign at a time of political controversy between the liberals and social reformers along with the Irish Home rule partisans. The reports of Jack the Ripper were collected and reported by the police, but then the different newspapers with their political influences slightly distorted the stories to give them their own effect. It has been more the one hundred years since the last murder and there is no longer any more original evidence, and the "facts" about the stories have changed over time due to different writers or differing sources. The press changed Jack the Ripper from being a depressed killer of prostitutes to one of the most romantic figures seen throughout history. One fact that most sources agreed upon was that the Ripper was a killer who wanted nothing more than to strike fear into the entire city by horribly mutilating his victims and then leaving them in locations where they were sure to be seen. Jack was the type of killer that wants fame and loved the fact that his "name" was on everyone's lips and was able to strike fear into anyone and everyone's heart. In the late 1800's "Jack the......

Jack London

...Jack London The life experiences of John Griffith, or more commonly known as Jack London, are portrayed throughout his many stories. His stories reflect the strengths and weaknesses of the living creature (be it more or beast). Jack London began his adventures at a very early age. Born out of wedlock and into a poverty-ridden family he learned to find ways of escaping the dull routine of work. At the age of ten London was selling newspapers to supplement the family income. He labored in canneries, mills, doing laundry and shoveling coal so that he could support his family. Between the laborious chores of earning a living London also had numerous adventures when he tried the other side of the law. The adventures started when he buys himself a small skiff and teaches himself to sail but the pressures of home life take that away from he and he is forced to work at a cannery starting at the tender age of 14. Even at that age Jack London still had continuous thoughts of writing for a living. At the age of 15 London is tired of the low wages and the back breaking work of the factory and decides to take matters into his own hands. He sails out to become an Oyster pirate with the ship “The Razzle Dazzle” that he purchases with money borrowed from Virginia Prentiss. The title “Prince of the Oyster Pirates” is soon given to him, but he soon becomes disillusioned with the rough life and decides to change to the other side of the law again. The next......

Jack and Jill

...Jill v. Jack Facts: Jill asks Jack to give her an estimate in the price of building a fence around her orchard. Jack inspects and measures Jill’s apple orchard and gives Jill an estimate of $1,000. Jill agrees to the price and they sign a contract. Jill, however, had in mind a fence around her peach orchard that is much larger. Jack says he cannot build a fence around the peach orchard for $1,000, but Jill wants to hold Jack to the $1,000 for a fence around the peach orchard, and sues Jack for breach of contract. Issue: Can Jill sue Jack for breach of contract? Rule: Breach of contract states “A failure of a party to a contract to perform his or her obligations as agreed to within the contract”. Contract law allows for judicial intervention in the event of a breach that is substantial, that goes to the root of the contract, also stated to be fundamental, by relieving the non-breaching party of his or her obligations and exposing the breaching party to damages or, if appropriate, an order for performance of the breached contractual obligation. Application: In Order for a contract to exist you have to have five elements: 1) Offer 2) Acceptance 3) Consideration 4) Legality 5) Capacity Under the common law, the offer had to be definite enough to establish the material terms of the contract. If material terms of the contract were not present in the offer, than a contract would not be found to exist. So the first element was not covered due...

Jack the R

...Michael Ritchie English III Mr. Howard March 18th 2012 Who was Jack the Ripper, Really? Jack the Ripper terrorized London in the last part of the 19th century. He was responsible for at least five brutal murders, and some experts attribute more killings to his total. While these murders were never actually solved, there is much evidence to suggest that the true identity of Jack the Ripper. The real serial killer was actually Walter Richard Sickert. Walter Richard Sickert was one of England’s greatest impressionist painters. “He was born and raised in Munich. His father was a great writer, and his mother was a very bad alcoholic. Walter at a young age underwent a series of penis surgeries which may have left him impotent. He suffered from fistula this is a hole in your penis”(Cornwell chapters 5 through 6). So this ment that sickert was unable to have intercourse.Sickerts artwork was one of the greatest clues to his crimes. His paintings are menacing and threatening towards women of a lower class. In other words, prostitutes. A few of Sickerts paintings resemble some of the Rippers crime scenes. The ripper may have been a man who had a hate for women, because of his own sexual inabilities or problems. Sickert was a master of disguise and could of easily of lured a prostitute to her death and then escaped without being noticed. He had an unhealthy fascination with the human body that went far and beyond a normal person would. The ripper liked to write letters and......

...Jack Kerouac's Rejection of Traditional Values in On the Road One of the most notable aspects of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, is the author’s willingness todescribe his own behaviors and attitudes in ways that reject traditional values, but enable himto make observations about America. These range from things like excessive drinking, whichwould always be viewed negatively, to an interest in jazz and racial mixing, which would have been viewed negatively in the 1950’s but not today. Also, Kerouac was part of a literarymovement – the Beats – whose rejection of traditional values was well known. BecauseKerouac rejected traditional values, On the Road was very controversial, but it was alsoinfluential.On the Road is a clearly autobiographical book, in which “Kerouac makes no attempt toseparate himself from his narrator” (Bartlett 125). On the Road is based on Kerouac’s actualexperiences, and the characters are based on actual people who he knew. (Bartlett 120;Latham; Charters 410-411). Therefore, Kerouac admits to doing anything that the narrator, SalParadise, did.One form of behavior that would be always be viewed negatively is excessive drinking. Saloften admits to drinking, but Kerouac uses this to make some interesting observations. For example, there is the time when Sal is with his friend Terry, and her brother Rickey andRickey’s friend Ponzo. Since Ponzo is in the business of buying and selling manure, they planto spend the say looking for manure, but they end up spending......

...Between August and November 1888, the Whitechapel area in the East End of London became the scene of five or even six heinous and brutal murders. The identity of the killer of these poor victims has remained a mystery. This mysterious killer was given the name “Jack the Ripper”. Jack wasn’t the first serial killer in the world, but he had no doubt managed to captivate the entire London. All women murdered by Jack the Ripper were prositutes lived and worked in the slums in the East Eng of London. All victims except for one were brutally mutilated. At least three of the victims’ internal organs were even removed from their bodies. People proposed from this action that the Ripper might prossesed anatomical or surgical knowledge. Jack the Ripper was never caught and the whole London was terrorized. The crimes were widely reported in the newspapers and the notoriety of the Ripper endures. In the 1880s, Britain exprienced an influx of immigrants and some cities including the East End of London’s population swelled. The Whitechapel area in London’s East End was overcrowed with immigrants who did not have a job and housing. The area was full of people at or below the poverty line. Working and housing conditions were awful at that time. Many of the residents could not find a job and for those who were lucky to get a job, they were forced to work 15 hours a day. There was not much option for women without a spouse or family. They had to fight very hard in any means for themselves.......

Jack Johnson

...During a time when blacks were considered less than equals to whites, Jack Johnson refused to be oppressed by racist America. He was both unafraid and uncompromising. He went wherever he chose, did whatever he wanted, and controversially had sexual relations with whichever race of women he wanted. As a boxer, Johnson went from being an unknown to the first African American heavyweight champion of the world. With little regard for his safety, he destroyed white fighters when blacks were expected to submit to whites. Johnson saw himself as an equal amongst whites; therefore he paid little attention to the chaos he caused throughout his professional career. Jack Johnson was born on March 31, 1878 in Galveston, Texas. He was one of seven children born to former slaves. Although he only had five years of schooling, he had big dreams of being famous. Growing up in Texas, he realized there was very little opportunity. Some of his earlier jobs included sweeping floors in a barber shop, carrying bags at a hotel, and loading bales of cotton on the waterfront. While working these dead-end jobs, Johnson continuously searched for a way out. It is unclear of just how he got into boxing, because he told various stories concerning this issue. His stories included everything from beating up the neighborhood bully to winning battle royals. Battle royals consisted of six to ten boys fighting blind-folded until the last man was standing. This was done is the presence of drunk......

Jack Welch

...Jack Welch Video I found the video of former GE CEO Jack Welch is fascinating. Mr. Welch had developed procedures to speed decision cycles, move information through the organization, provide quick and effective feedback, and evaluate and reward managers on qualities such as openness, candor, and self-confidence. Mr. Welch steered a transformation of attitudes at GE- in his words, to release “emotional energy” at all levels of the organization and encourage creativity and feelings of ownership and self-worth. His ultimate goal was to create an enterprise that can tap the benefits of global scale and diversity without the stifling costs of bureaucratic controls and hierarchical authority and without a managerial focus on personal power and self-perpetuation. This requires a transformation not only of systems and procedures, but also of people themselves. Good leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion. Above all else, though, good leaders are open. They go up, down, and around their organization to reach people. They don’t stick to the established channels. They’re informal. They’re straight with people. They make a religion out of being accessible. Real leaders don’t need clutter. People must have the self-confidence to be clear, precise, to be sure that every person in their organization—highest to lowest—understands what the business is trying to achieve. The challenge is to move that......

...willing to work in mainland China, Hong Kong workers were considered by international enterprises to have reliable working attitudes, be efficient and effective in work, have good management skills, be proficient in both Chinese and English, and be sensitive to the trend of international development. They were also viewed as an important bridge by which mainland companies could build a link with Hong Kong and/or overseas companies. Hong Kong workers working in China were receiving higher wages than the local workers in China. Although they were satisfied with what they got under the current situation in mainland China, their situations were not stable; there was a risk that employers like to let local people replaced their posts. Mr. Cheung (age 30, accounts executive in a multinational enterprise in Hong Kong) said, I have three days a week to stay in mainland to work, my contribution is to teach my colleagues in the mainland about the technical requirements from our clients, and also keep good communication with headquarters. Any misunderstanding or delay will make the company lose money. This skill is not known by my colleagues in mainland China. Headquarters asked us to teach the necessary skill to our colleagues in China for their survival. But I know that if they learned the skill, I will be fired. I need to handle the matter carefully in order to protect my present and further interests. Working Attitude of Generation Y Generation Y in both......

Jack the Ripper

...Over the years, there have been many brutal murders all over the world. One of the most horendous and bloodiest series of murders took place in England in the late 19th century by a mysertious man known as "Jack the Ripper." Between August and November 1888, the Whitechapel area of London was the scene of five brutal murders. All of the murders were taken place less than a mile apart from each other. On August 31, 1888, Jack the Ripper killed his first victim. Mary Nichols' dead body was found in Buck's Row Whitechapel at around 3am. Her throat was cut and her body was disemboweled. Her murder was just the start of Jack the Ripper's "regin of terror." On September 8, 1888, the body of another prostitute was discovered in the backyard on 29 Hanbury Street. It was less than a mile away from Buck's Row, where the previous murder of Mary Nichols had taken place just a week before. This victim was Annie Chapman. Jack the Ripper removed her womb. When she was found, there was a leather apron tied around her body. That was a clue to who the murderer might have been. The area was flooded with police officers, and since there hadn't been any murders for a few weeks, they thought that they had scared him off. Shortly after Annie Chapman's murder, Sergeant William Thicke arrested John Pizer. John was known in the area as "Leather Apron." However, John Pizer was able to provide proof that he was not apart of the murder of Annie Chapman or Mary Nichols. Then he was released and......

...Despite the many murders that occurred frequently in Eastend in the 1880’s, Ripper’s murders were said to be ‘singular’ and ‘peculiar’ which suggests that it was unique and that the method of murder was very different. The phrases ‘extraordinary violence’ and ‘excess of effort’ infers that Jack the Ripper was vicious, brutal and went over the top. The victims were the ‘poorest of poor’ so the murderer was not trying to rob the victims. Since there was ‘no adequate motive in the shape of plunder’ it suggests that Jack the Ripper committed these crimes because he or she enjoyed killing. However the source describes the work of Jack the Ripper as the ‘work of a demented being’ which suggests that Jack the Ripper was mad. 2. Study Sources A, B and C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence of Sources A and B about the Ripper murders? Explain your answer. (8) Sources A and C comment on how the victims were poor so money was not the murderer’s motive. Also the details of how the victim was murdered in source C supports the fact, in source A, that the murder was peculiar and had extra-ordinary violence. However source C is more detailed on the method of murder whereas source A is general describing the murder but not the method. Source C supports source A to a very little extent. Sources B and C agree on the fact that the murder was committed with the use of a knife – ‘In the neck there was a long incision’ ‘cutting the...
