Findings

(3.1) Introduction

Noel Gallagher is the former principal songwriter of Brit Pop band, Oasis and he is now the front man of his own band, Noel Gallagher’s Highflying Birds. During his career with Oasis, Noel played alongside his younger brother Liam, who served as the band’s front man. The band gained severe media attention for the budding inter band/sibling rivalry which ruled them, both on and off the stage and it would be this rivalry that would result in the band’s break up in 2009.

(3.2) Early life

Noel Gallagher was born in Manchester in 1967 to Irish parents, his mother hailing from Mayo and his father from Meath. He is second eldest of three brothers, his brother Paul being the oldest and Liam being the youngest. The Gallagher brothers had a hard upbringing as they were subjects of physical abuse by their alcoholic father. As a teen Noel and his brothers were often in trouble both inside and outside of school and Noel himself was given 6 months’ probation for robbing a corner shop and he was also…...

...Will books, as we know them, come to an end? Yes, absolutely, within 25 years the digital revolution will bring about the end of paper books. But more importantly, ebooks and e-publishing will mean the end of "the writer" as a profession. Ebooks, in the future, will be written by first-timers, by teams, by speciality subject enthusiasts and by those who were already established in the era of the paper book. The digital revolution will not emancipate writers or open up a new era of creativity, it will mean that writers offer up their work for next to nothing or for free. Writing, as a profession, will cease to exist. Generation Y and the End of Paper First of all I'd like to clear up the question: "The end of Books?" This is misleading as it seems purely technical – a question of the paper mill versus the hard drive. Of course the paper book will survive, you may say; it will reinvent itself as it did before. Haven't future projections been wrong in the past? Didn't they say Penguin paperbacks would destroy the print industry in 1939? That the printing press would overthrow Catholicism after 1440? That home videos would destroy cinema? On the paper front, depending on whom you listen to, statistics vary wildy. Barnes and Noble claims it now sells three times as many digital books as all formats of physical books combined. Amazon claims it has crossed the tipping point and sells 242 ebooks for every 100 hardbacks, while Richard Sarnoff, CEO of Bertelsmann, admits......

Union War

...The Union War “Without an appreciation of why loyal citizens believed a Union that guaranteed democratic self-government was worth great sacrifice, no accurate understanding of the Civil War era was possible” (Gallagher). I agree with this statement by Gallagher because if it wasn’t for the decisions and executions of the Union I am not sure if I would be living in a democratic, free society today. In The Union War, Gallagher “offers a companion volume that extends his manifesto against hindsight, what Gallagher calls the ‘Appomattox syndrome,’ to histories of the Union” (Gallagher, 79). According to Gallagher, researchers who work backward from emancipation and Reconstruction have expanded northern devotion to race, slavery, and abolition while complicating loyal Americans’ major war aim, the Union. The above quote stated by Gary Gallagher is one of the main causes as to why the North won the Civil War because with the joining of citizens who wanted to fight for their democratic government, it gave the Union more soldiers that wanted to fight than the Confederates. They won the Civil War simply because they had more people. The North won the Civil War they were on the right side of human ethical issues. They had their best interest in helping the morals of humans and this alone helps citizens be able to trust the Union’s tendencies and this can also make a citizen loyal. The North clearly had more men to fight for them and there were more people that wanted to end slavery,...

...Simon Waltzer Intro to Speech Communication 11/28/2010 Mexican Drug Wars In the early part of 2003 I went to the state of Michoacán in Mexico to visit my grandparents, because it had been since 1994 since I was last there. It was an incredible experience for me to once again see my family who many of them I’ve never met before. Never did I know that this might have been the last time that I would go visit them, no not because I didn’t want to but because of the circumstances surrounding the area of where my parents lived in. The reality was that Mexican Drug Cartel who has existed since the 1980s had become stronger and dangerous since newly elected Mexican President Felipe Calderon was in assumed office in December of 2006. Calderon hailing from that very state of Michoacán ordered 6,500 federal troops to the state of Michoacán to end the drug violence there. Ever since then, the drug violence between drug cartels and the Mexican Government has escalated to the highest extent. Although drug violence has existed long before the war with cartels and the government began, it was generally not as bad during the 1990s and early 2000s. This action is regarded as the first major operation against organized crime, and is generally viewed as the starting point of the war between the government and the drug cartels. As time progressed, Calderón continued to escalate his anti-drug campaign, in which there are now about 45,000 troops involved in addition of state and federal......

Stereotypes

...a mass of people we tend to group them all together, and make the information concise, that way we can handle it more efficiently. Stereotypes in general present a population in a “typical” point of view, as the statements are based on people’s knowledge about the society, believes and expectancies, in which a lot of the allegations come from the media and how the media present famous personalities. Influences In modern society, the form by which most stereotypes are transmitted by is though the mass media that can be everything from television and movies to newspapers and literature. Having bad teeth, for instance, is one allegation that is often used to describe a typical Briton. British celebrities like The Oasis star, Noel Gallagher and Hugh Grant are some of the British celebrities who are presented as people with bad teeth, which could be one of the reasons for why Britons are being stereotyped with bad teeth. Britons are also connected with being smart. That could be because of their posh and broad accents that sound more sophisticated and refined than most languages. The allegation can also be connected with the large number of well known British inventors and scientists. Sir Issac Newton, for instance, got hit by an apple and discovered gravity forces. He is now one of the greatest scientists the world has ever known. This way we are given a picture of how some Britons act, and it automatically classifies all Britons in one group. The way......

Les Fetes de Noel En France

...Les fetes de Noel en France Le mot "Noël" est tiré du latin "natalis", signifiant "jour de la naissance". Pendant les premiers siècles de l'ère chrétienne, la date de la naissance de Jésus était incertaine et différait selon les dire de l'Eglise. Les Evangiles ne mentionnaient pas de date exacte sur l'avènement du Christ, et ce n'est qu'en l'an 354 que l'on fixa le 25 décembre comme date officielle. Les périodes de Noël s'étendent de l'Avent (1er dimanche 4 semaines avant la veille de Noël) à l'Epiphanie (6 janvier). Depuis de nombreux siècles, le 25 décembre célèbre le jour de la naissance du Christ. A cette fête s'accompagnent de nombreuses coutumes : le sapin, la crèche, le Père-Noël, les cadeaux, le houx, les contes, les cantiques, la dinde, la bûche, les chocolats, etc. Tous ces éléments font traditionnellement partie des fêtes de Noël. L'arbre de Noël regroupe plusieurs symboles montrant les richesses que nous offre la nature : la lumière, les anges, les fruits des vergers, des champs, de la forêt et de la mer. L'étoile qui brille à son faite annonce la fin du voyage, le havre de paix. Garni de pommes rouges, un sapin symbolisait alors l'arbre du Paradis. Plusieurs jours avant Noël, les villes et les villages de France prennent un air de fête. On décore la façade des mairies. On dresse un immense sapin sur les grandes places. Les rues principales et les arbres sont recouverts de guirlandes lumineuses. Les grands magasins font de très belles......

‘the Irish Electoral System of Pr-Stv Is Fundamentally Flawed and Should Be Replaced by the Single Member Plurality System (Commonly Referred to as ‘First Past the Post’)’. Critically Analyse the Above Statement with a

...team they often feel out of place and are given the cold shoulder by their older peers who may feel like their seats are being put under jeopardy by these ambitious newcomers. Therefore making politics appear as an unappealing profession to enter into (Michael Gallagher, 2013). Also those candidates who do in fact focus their attention on bettering our nation instead of cajoling local, smaller issues run the risk of losing their seats to those candidates who do cajole the locals and treat the national problems as a secondary focus. Most critics of the PR-STV system thus see the power that the public hold over local candidates intra-party as a major fault and argue that without this pressure they would perform better for the good of their country. Many experts feel if we get rid of the intra-party electoral competition it would solve this problem of unnecessary competition (Michael Gallagher, 2014). However the PR-STV system is also very highly regarded by a large amount of experts in this area due to a number of advantages it provides. For starters as Michael Gallagher himself said “the STV system is far better able to ensure the representation of the minorities than the single member plurality system.” (Michael Gallagher, 2014). It gives strong independent candidates a far greater chance to being elected as the election is intra-candidate instead of intra-party like the Single Plurality System (Ace Project, 2005). On top of that, who is to say that all the constituency......

...changing technology market. (Gallagher, 2012) That said, Apple Inc. still has plenty of challenges ahead. Some of those stem simply from the nature of the fast-paced, hyper-competitive consumer technology business the company currently competes in — and largely dominates. (Gallagher, 2012) Other challenges may be more unique to Apple and its singular focus on a relatively narrow line of products. And long-term, the company may still feel the loss of a leader who possessed an uncanny ability to see around corners, and bend other strong personalities to his will. (Gallagher, 2012) “The guy who could literally pull rabbits out of his hat no longer exists,” said independent technology analyst Roger Kay. (Gallagher, 2012) Apple’s had a phenomenally strong year since Jobs’ death from cancer last October, which left the company permanently in the hands of the senior management team he spent years cultivating, led by CEO Tim Cook. It’s also had some stumbles along the way. (Gallagher, 2012) Some missteps with features such as Siri — the infamous personal digital assistant first embedded into last year’s iPhone 4S — and the Apple Maps tool in the latest iPhone 5 have caused some level of embarrassment. The company under Jobs’ direction was not free of slip-ups either, and some issues have spanned both periods, such as growing concerns about the treatment of workers in the massive Chinese factories that produce the company’s popular products.

Managing Negative People

...How to Exercise the Emotional Virus of Negativity in the Workplace Noel Paul LAW 410 Alan Gallagher April 6, 2008 [pic] How to Exercise the Emotional Virus of Negativity in the Workplace Negativity is like an emotional virus which can spread rapidly from one person to another. Individuals can bring the virus to work or catch it from others in the workplace. The emotional virus can spread quickly in a matter of days or weeks, and once transmitted, it is difficult to cure. We all have difficult and negative people in our lives and we have to work, manage, or live with negativists, whiners, and complainers. The most difficult personalities in the workplace today are Negativists and managing them is a skill in itself. Researchers have shown that negativists, also known as whiners and complainers, have a strong need to be liked (Kettenhofen p.1). They tend to think that by complaining about how much work they have to do or that they do not have enough work to do, they will gain empathy from fellow coworkers. The fellow coworkers in the office begin to notice how these people often spend more time complaining than working. Employees tend to spend more time focused on the individual and less time working. Negativists tend to be capable people but this capacity gets turned in the wrong direction. Individuals with this type of personality tend to feel very strongly that unless a project is in their hands, it......

Underwater Stock Options

...April 2014 Leanne Gallagher took a job as the senior software engineer at the start-up corporation MoniMed that was expected to go public within the following year. She was offered a salary of $85,000 with the option to buy 30,000 shares of stock in the company for 30 cents a share. She knew the risks of taking a pay decrease of $20,000 and that the stocks might not increase in price. Gallagher also wanted more information on the company’s financial standing before she accepted the job, but after one phone call she gave up her search. She saw that the typical target price for medical start ups was $10 during the initial offering. She would lose $20,000 from her salary decrease, but make $262,000 from 30,000 shares in the company. This was not guaranteed and no one at the company could promise these results, but she took the risk anyways. Grantz, the founder and CEO of the company, sold MoniMed to CV Diagnostix just prior to the IPO causing the price of shares to drop to 27 cents per share. Gallagher and the other employees suffered while Grantz made $2.5 million on the acquisition. Was Grantz ethically wrong to withhold the financial status of the company from his employees and shareholders because it prevented them from making an informed decision? By analyzing this case according to the Act Utilitarian theory, it was immoral for the CEO and founder Barry Grantz to withhold the financial records of his company from Leanne Gallagher. When Gallagher interviewed for her......

... it can be difficult at times, from disagreements to expectation of one another. In both narrations “The Case for Marriage,” by Lind J. Waite and Maggie Gallagher and “Why I want a wife,” by Judy Brady, speaks about marriage. Though their narratives is about marriage they both speak differently of it. Of the two readings, I preferred "The Case for Marriage" because the essay echoes my beliefs on marriage also, getting married supports my Catholic beliefs. "The Case for Marriage" is a preferred reading than "Why I want a wife" for the reason that, firstly, Waite and Gallagher have effective examples and secondly, the essay is not bias. Every lawyer has to have evidence to prove cases. Just like lawyers Waite and Gallagher used evidence to prove their case. Effective examples enhance the reading and adding examples helps make ones point across. For example, Waite and Gallagher used statistics in their essay to show the readers that they are passionate on what they are speaking about; they did studies to assist their point to be more effective. "According to a study we did, of those men who ever married or are divorced only 60 percent will still be around...90 percent of the married men will survive...90 percent of married women will reach 65, compared to 80 percent of single and divorced men," they write (Waite and Gallagher, 105). I believe that statistics are helpful their essay because it helps convince people why one should get married, it did for me. Even though, “The......

... Kylie Minogue and Canada's Alanis Morissette and her breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill. Lady Gaga is a notable singer-songwriter of the 2010s. Also in the 1980s and 1990s, artists such as Bono, The Edge, Dave Matthews, Duncan Sheik and Elliott Smith borrowed from the singer-songwriter tradition to create new acoustic-based rock styles. In the 2000s, a quieter style emerged, with largely impressionistic lyrics, from artists such as Norah Jones, Conor Oberst, Sufjan Stevens, David Bazan, South San Gabriel, Iron & Wine, David Gray, Ray LaMontagne, Meg Hutchinson, Steve Millar, Jolie Holland, Richard Buckner, Jewel, Jack Savoretti, Richard Shindell, and John Gorka. Some started to branch out in new genres such as Kurt Cobain, Noel Gallagher and Eddie Vedder. Others used drugs as a mind-altering way to boost creativity; for example, Emil Amos of Holy Sons took drugs daily from age sixteen on, wrote over 1,000 songs, and landed a record contract with an indie label.[17] Recording on the professional-grade systems became affordable for individuals in the late 1990s. This created opportunities for people to independently record and sell their music. Such artists are known as "indies" because they release their records on independent, often self-owned record labels, or no label at all. Additionally the Internet has provided a means for indies to get their music heard by a wider audience. During the 2000s Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Taylor......
