The Life of Fitzgerald

...Research Paper: Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald [pic] Lovely Louis and Abigail Saint – Juste English 1 Ms. M. Jeanty November 26, 2007 In the early jazzy years, there was a small restaurant where people were dancing to a new jazz number. They were laughing, eating, chatting, and enjoying themselves. In the mist of all the laughter, there sat a man in a dark corner writing vigorously. His name was Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald. He was an American author of novels and many short stories. He was also recognized as one of the greatest authors in the twentieth century. Fitzgerald’s Early Years Francis Scott K. Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on September 24, 1896. He was named after his famous distant cousin Francis Scott Key, who was the author of the National Anthem. His father, Edward Fitzgerald, and his mother were both Catholic and of Irish descent. However they both came from different societies. Fitzgerald’s mother came from a background where money was everything, such as: position and stability. And his father came from a background where discipline was the most importance. As a result all the attitudes and manners that were established in Fitzgerald’s character came from his father and all the concerns of stability in the society came from his mother. Between the years of 1898-1901 and 1903- 1908 he lived in Buffalo, New York. And this is when he attended Nardin Academy. However when his father was fired from his job, his......

LeBron James is a basketball player that was dealing with all of this in high school, at the age of 18 (LeBron James, 2005). His sophomore and junior year of high school he was being compared to the greatest basketball players of all time (LeBron James, 2005). To be all over the news with every sports commentator talking about LeBron, he had to have a lot of self control and stay focused on his basketball game, by blocking all the distractions out (The Person, 2005). LeBron James is the basketball icon for his generation; he achieved that by being one of the youngest most successful players in the NBA as of now. Growing up in a broken home LeBron never had a father figure to guide him certain directions in life He did however have a strong mother and relatives who tried their best to raise LeBron. All through his schooling there was some financial trouble in his family life but LeBron had the will to carry on. By middle school his mother knew he was a special boy, talented on the court and in his studies. As high school rolled in LeBron continued to get taller, stronger and better skilled than the other players around him; the coaches soon noticed him and he made varsity as a freshman. During his junior year he was already known around the country as the next Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson. The fans were so unbelievable that many of the games had to......

...James was born James Ambrose Johnson Jr. in Buffalo, New York, in 1948. He was one of eight children in a family headed by an abusive father who left when James was just seven. From his mother, once a Katherine Dunham dancer who had worked at some of Harlem's most prestigious nightclubs, James learned at an early age about the possibilities show business offered. But with eight kids in her single-parent household in Buffalo, Mabel Johnson's glamorous days were long over--instead of dancing, she worked as a cleaning woman and ran numbers on the side for a local organized crime racket. Through this she was able to clothe and feed her children, and was also able to send some to private school. James went to a Catholic school for a time--even serving as an altar boy--but its strict rules and his love of sports could not keep him out of trouble by the time he entered his teens. His formative years were marked by an increasing penchant for cutting class, petty crime, and a burgeoning relationship with juvenile authorities. Though James seemed on the road to a dead-end future, it was a talent show he entered in high school that finally provided him with the focus his life needed. When he took the stage, "I started off with a bongo beat," James wrote in the manuscript for his autobiography, Memoirs of a Super Freak, reprinted in a 1996 Rolling Stone interview with Mike Sager. "Then I began to sing out this chant. I asked the crowd to sing along, and they did. The feeling of the......

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, America’s Toughest Sheriff

...Sheriff Joe Arpaio, America’s Toughest Sheriff Sheriff Joe Arpaio. When you hear that name, you may be thinking to yourself, "Who is that?" If you are from Arizona or the surrounding states, you probably know exactly who I am talking about. Sheriff Arpaio, or Sheriff Joe as he is more commonly known as around here, is the Sheriff of Maricopa County. He has been labeled by many as "America's Toughest Sheriff". He is known for his hardline stance on illegal immigration as well as the way inmates in his county jail are treated. Although many people don't agree with his approach on illegal immigration, they do agree with the way he treats his inmates. His philosophy is that if you are going to commit a crime and go to jail, you should be treated like you are in jail, not like you are in Boy Scout camp. Sheriff Arpaio was elected as Sheriff of Maricopa County back in 1992. Since he has become Sheriff, many of his policies that he has put into place have been met with resistance. One of the most controversial topics is his views on how illegal immigration should be handled in the county. Since 2005, he has cracked down on illegal immigration by conducting immigration sweeps targeting day laborers and also businesses and people that hire illegal immigrants. (Bashir & Culhane, 2009). You used to go to the local Home Depot and see 20 to 50 day laborers hanging out in the parking lots looking for work. But since Sheriff Joe started enforcing illegal immigration, the......

The median annual salary of an attorney employed in the United States by a local government was $95,950 in May 2013 (Bureau of Labor Statistics [BLS], 2013). The bottom 10 percent earned less than $51,220, and the top 10 percent earned more than $154,150 (BLS, 2013). “Lawyer salaries can range widely based on several factors such as the size of the firm, the number of employees, kind of law being practiced, location of the firm, the type of clientele served, how much the lawyer is willing to work, and amount of experience gained through law school” (, 2014) .

Fitzgerald Wealth

...Explore how Fitzgerald presents wealth and social status in the first chapter of The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald shows wealth and social status to be two defining elements within society in the 1920s however, Nick is the anomaly in this equation as he doesn’t conform to society’s pre-determined and dictated way of life. Fitzgerald shows through the vulgarity of Gatsby`s mansion that wealth was very much defined by how lavish your possessions were. Gatsby, being new money, didn’t care for social pressures and chose to live a life of decadence and extravagance by living in a `colossal` `imitation` of a house. Although it is lavish and `spanking new` there’s an air of tastelessness and begins to show Gatsby`s lack of sophistication. The fact its an `imitation` suggests that its not only the house that’s trying to be a replica it could also be Gatsby himself trying to be big, bold and brash in a desperate attempt to be noticed by Daisy. Gatsby`s mansion is a reflection of himself, the house is `new` much like Gatsby to having an abundance of wealth and they both lack a character and charm that those who were born with money had already acquired. Fitzgerald once again compares Gatsby to his mansion through his use of personification in the phrase `a thin beard of raw ivy` as this suggest that Gatsby has attempted at social climbing but much like the `thin beard` he hasn’t prospered. This has connotations of vulnerability and causes the reader to consider Gatsby as weak and......

Mike Carona: Amercia's Sheriff?

...David Gonzales Professor Nancy Jimeno Political Science 300 17 November 2015 America’s Sheriff? “Whoever coined ‘crime does not pay’ obviously did not know Carona” (Coker). Michael S. "Mike" Carona is a convicted felon and former Sheriff-Coroner of Orange County, California. According to the OC Register, as a convicted felon, Mike Carona is currently collecting $195,120 annually from his pension. For Mike Carona crime did pay. But how is this possible? Authors Saavedra, Schwebke, and Tillman stated a new state law that only became effective in 2006 denies a public pension to any public official convicted of wrongdoing in office. Due to this law, if Carona is convicted, he would be denied benefits accumulated from January 2006 through his leaving office, which is just one year. This means Carona will still collect the majority of his pension. The thought of anyone convicted of crimes receiving a public pension has not gone unseen. Chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors at the time, John Moorlach confirmed that Carona would indeed still receive his pension when asked about it. Moorlach sarcastically stated "I think working for the county is wonderful. If you're indicted, you still get your pension" (OC Register). Moorlach led county supervisors to file suit to repeal the pension. The suit was rejected and is now pending appeal. Furthermore, there was a petition to put Carona’s pension back into OC schools, however nothing was been done yet and......

...the necessary steps to live the dream themselves. American author F. Scott Fitzgerald has an unparalleled impact on the idea of the American Dream. Fitzgerald’s novels This Side of Paradise and The Great Gatsby have consistent themes that feature small aspects of the American Dream that conflicts him. Both the main male characters, Armory Blaine and Jay Gatsby showcase men in 1920s America who have come into wealth, yet their money and shiny trinkets do not bring them happiness, even though that is what both characters legitimately yearned for. Together, Gatsby and Blaine expose a perception of the American Dream that F. Scott Fitzgerald investigated thoroughly throughout his life. The idea that when a society is consumed by materialism and the promises it could bring the real American Dream is lost in the shuffle. Fitzgerald was born on September 24, 1869 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The author was named after his second cousin Scott Francis Key, who wrote the lyrics to the “Star-Spangled Banner”. As a young boy he went to two Catholic schools the most prestigious of the two being the Newman school where he graduated high school in 1912 and was admitted to Princeton the following year. During his time at the university he dismissed his studies to focus on his writing. He wrote numerous plays for the Triangle Club and articles for the Princeton Tiger along with Nassau Literary Magazine. Because Fitzgerald neglected so much of his coursework he was put on academic probation in......

F. Scott Fitzgerald

...F. Scott Fitzgerald Though there have been many great authors in history, F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of the most admirable for his works. During F. Scott Fitzgerald’s life, many things that were “in the air” influenced him. He lived through the roaring twenties, also known as the Jazz Age, and continued on his career into the Great Depression. On September 24th, 1896, Mary McQuillan gave birth to her child, Francis Scott Fitzgerald. He was born in the apartment that was rented by his parents. The man who fathered Fitzgerald was Edward Fitzgerald. Three months before Fitzgerald was born, his mother had lost her two daughters. F. Scott Fitzgerald began his school career at Miss Goodyear’s School in September of 1902. At Miss Goodyear’s School, Fitzgerald had become a very avid reader. Since F. Scott Fitzgerald’s father transferred jobs a lot, he attended many schools during his childhood. When his father transferred to Buffalo, New York, Fitzgerald went to Miss Narden’s school. During the time while he attended Miss Narden’s School, he got involved with the Catholic Church. The Fitzgeralds moved back to Minnesota after Edward Fitzgerald was fired, and F. Scott Fitzgerald began attending St. Paul’s School. While he was enrolled in St. Paul’s School, Fitzgerald wrote his first short stories. He was expelled from St. Paul’s School due to his grades, though, and soon after the Fitzgeralds got transferred to Hackensack, New Jersey, where F. Scott Fitzgerald was......
