Ms. Ross has open a brand new world for a lot of black artist of her time, the paths that she has paved for young black female artist are breath taken. She set the stage for how hard work and motivation along with preservation go hand in hand. Ms. Ross was the key element of the Supremes her up-tempo vocals kept her as the lead soloist on most of the songs performed with the group. She impressed when he first heard her voice and he new he had a winner for his record label. Even though it took some years before Ms. Ross performed as a solo artist she still performed with the Supremes until the end. Ms. Ross hit the top of the charts when she became a solo artist and never looked back for several years. She kept the lime life going as she stared in sitcoms, movies, talk shows.

Diana Ross’s real name is Diana Ernestine Earl Ross there was a story to be told if Diana’s name ended in “a” or an “e”. She said her actual name is “Diane” it was a clerical error that resulted in her name being “Diana” on her birth certificate.

Wl Ross and Plascar

...Case: WL Ross and Plascar 1. Evaluate the strategy of the International Auto Components Group. International Auto Components Group’s (IAG) strategy is to acquire distressed auto components companies and turn them around. Ross and Toy concluded that the Automotive Components Group is fragmented, plagued by overcapacity, exposed to rising raw material costs, and debilitated by globalization. Ross and Toy specifically identified automotive plastic parts as their target product line and started acquiring all distressed companies in this area. They are mainly interested in companies that have good operations and management in place and buy the debt at a bargain and takeover the company. They are especially interested in companies in developing countries like Brazil, and Argentina where there is a lot of growth opportunities for the automotive industry and where the labor costs are less. 2. Should Ross acquire the equity and inter-company debt-claims of Plascar? Yes, Ross should go with the third option mentioned in the case. In essence, Ross should acquire the equity and inter-company debt-claims of Plascar. The cost of equity is not that high, as the stock price of Plascar is trading very low due to customer’s lack of confidence in Plascar. Once he takes over the company, Ross should work with Minority shareholders and tax authorities to resolve outstanding issues. Ross should reject the option of using Brazil’s bankruptcy procedure to pursue their debt claims as it is...

Princess Diana

...Princess Diana as well as her tragic death is a direct consequence of the pressures laid by fame and the pressures of royalty. A lot was expected of her as the Princess of Wales. Her elevation to royalty placed undue demands on a lady who could not bear being on the limelight. Her newly found matrimony did not help as her husband, Prince Charles became a philanderer. The Prince openly carried on his affair with an old flame, Camilla Parker. Any sensible woman should have deserted her husband but Diana was no ordinary woman. She was a mother to princes, one of whom was an heir to the British monarchy. Moreover, Diana had a public responsibility to the people of England to behave as the model princess and initially divorce was out of the question. Consequently she decided to put on a façade of happiness in order to fulfill her role as the peoples’ princess and proud wife. Beneath her superficial glamorous veneer, was a hurting woman who lacked an outlet to vent her gradually growing emotional turmoil. Unfortunately Diana had to live by the chauvinistic protocol of royalty. Just like the predecessors, Charles carried on with an affair in the full glare of the public and his wife was expected to tolerate his behavior. A good example is the infamous Tudor King, Henry VIII. Henry had numerous affairs but his wives did not object as it was indeed a man’s world. Apparently such norms are in play as exhibited by Prince Charles. Her station and decorum did not allow Diana to......

Ross, “Sir William David Ross made significant contributions to the translation and interpretation of the works of Aristotle and to moral philosophy. His work in ancient philosophy, especially his various commentaries on Aristotle, is still considered to be of the highest caliber. Many believe that Ross's work in this area is his most valuable contribution to philosophy. However, his main writings in moral philosophy are of lasting if not equal value. His The Right and the Good is arguably one of the most important works of moral philosophy published in the twentieth century” (p. 1). This essay reviews ethical pluralism. Ross contends that there is plurality of irreducible moral rules that are basic in moral thought.  W. D. Ross Ross argues there is no one single moral principle or rule. Instead, Ross thinks we can make moral betterment by learning more of our moral duties, and doing our best at balancing conflicting understanding and values. According to Ross review of Utilitarianism, which Ross considers has limited aspects of the relationships between people: the relationship of harmer to harmed and the relationship of beneficent to beneficiary.  Ross advances that we have self-evident prima facie moral duties, and intrinsic value. These duties are “prima facie” because they can be......

Princess Diana Case Study

...Many people remember Princess Diana for her very fragile and loving nature, however during an interview with BBC, she often remarks “I am a very strong person,” an ironic statement for someone whose life was full of challenges and disappointments (Elliot& Pederson, 1995, p.62). Beginning with her birth on July 1, 1961 to aristocratic parents Viscount and Viscountess Johnnie and Frances Althorp, Princess Diana (then Diana Frances Spencer) believed she was a disappointment to her parents because she was not born a baby boy, the desired heir to the Spencer estate. Feelings of disappointment continued for Diana during her parent’s divorce at the age of six and her father’s second marriage to Raine (a woman she despised) when she was 16. Shortly after her father’s marriage to Raine, Diana failed her “O-levels” (or college placement tests), and was sent to a Swiss finishing school to develop her passion for skiing rather than focus on academics. It was based on this new sense of freedom that caused Diana to exhibit problematic behaviors, such as relentless stubbornness and lying, as well as early symptoms of an eating disorder (Elliot & Pederson, 1995). Thus, it is the purpose of this paper to examine how the events of Diana’s life in conjunction with psychological components contributed to her development of bulimia nervosa. Biological Component Eating disorders like bulimia are a significant public health problem for individuals across the lifespan (American Psychological......

Introduction In my term paper I want to discuss if the nature phenomenons in the short story “A Lamp at Noon” written by Sinclair Ross (1908-1996) have such a loom large that they can be seen as a protagonist. During my research I found the statement: (D)ie enge Verbindung von Mensch und natürlicher Umwelt, welche in ihren extremen klimatischen Verhältnissen [...] immer wieder übermächtig und indifferent grausam gegenüber den ums […] Überleben kämpfende Farmersleuten, ja beinahe als >Protagonist< erscheint. (Gross 158) I found that point of view very interessting and that is way I will discuss this theses. A protagonist is “the main character in a play, film/movie or book [...]” (Wehmeier) Even though the nature phenomenons can’t be the protagonist as such because they are not represented by a character, they have an important situation in the short story. Obvious is that......

Glengarry Glen Ross

...Glengarry Glenn Ross Glengarry Glenn Ross is a film that received a great deal of praise from movie critics when it was released by New Line Cinema in 1992. Roger Ebert, of the Chicago Sun-Times, gave the movie three and a half stars out of four, and was quoted as saying that Glengarry Glenn Ross was the “Death of a Salesman” of modern times (Ebert). While this comparison might not be made by all viewers of this movie, Glengarry Glenn Ross is a great viewpoint into the sales offices of today, and gives an insight into the pressures that salespeople face today. The movie is loaded with supervisory styles and situations, as well as showing how unforgiving the sales world really can be. Glengarry Glen Ross was written by playwright David Mamet in 1984. The play was so well received that it received a Pulitzer Prize for Drama that same year (Emanuel Levy). Mamet adapted his play into a screenplay for the 1992 movie release. Mamet is also credited with writing the screenplays for such notable movies as “Hoffa”, “The Untouchables”, “About Last Night”, and most recently “Hannibal.”(IMDB) Mamet, however, did not direct “Glengarry Glenn Ross” even though he had previous directing experience on a movie named “House of Games” (Levy). “Glengarry Glen Ross” was instead directed by James Foley, a director responsible for directing such films as “Who’s That Girl” and “The Chamber”(IMDB). There have been several movies made over the past few fifteen years such as “Ocean’s......

Loretta Ross Keynote

...Texas Tech University’s Women’s Studies Department. At the event I had the pleasure of listening to guest speaker, Loretta Ross, about her life story and mission as a human rights leader. Lorretta Ross was like no other speaker I have ever seen. She had natural charisma and charm that had everyone in the room hanging on to every word she said. From an early age, she was a bright woman who had fallen under the unfortunate circumstance of becoming pregnant due to incestuous rape. She admits that she never planned on being a feminist and activist, but, after being suspended from her high school in San Antonio and rejected from a college scholarship because of her pregnancy, she had to take a stand for herself and others. One of the biggest take always from Lorretta Ross is her intersectionality among racism, women’s issues, and human rights. Ross, being an activist, started Reproductive Justice along with eleven other women in 1994. After a health care reform tried to exclude women’s reproductive health care, Ross and the other women banded together to protest. When coming up with the name for their group, they needed something that described their group despite their difference in views; some of the women were pro-choice and others pro-life. These women coined the term Reproductive Justice to classify their group within a broader human rights framework. Ross also spoke of the feminist movement as being “white-washed” and how it offends her because it belittles her African......
