From a shamefully unwed twenty-two-year old’s illegitimate child to a twenty-eight-year old serial killer and serial rapist, Ted Bundy became one of the most notorious criminals of the late 20th century. On November 24, 1946, Eleanor Louise Cowell gave birth to her illegitimate child Theodore Robert Cowell in Burlington, Vermont in a house for unwed mothers. Although his biological father is unknown, it is rumored that Samuel Cowell (his grandfather whom he believed was his father) may have in fact been his biological father. For most of his life, Theodore “Ted” believed that his grandparents were actually his parents, making Louise out to be his older sister. Something he didn’t find out until later in his life (no one knows for sure the

He admits to praying to a god he no longer believed in. the second quote explains after Wiesel’s father’s death no prayers were said over his tomb. This means Wiesel didn’t pray because he loved his father so much and did everything he could for him, even when he had the thought of losing his father, he prayed. This is a huge sign he lost all faith in god. At the end of Wiesel’s memoir he had given up on god because nothing in his life at that time was good, which changed his
“If you fall behind, run faster, never give up, never surrender and fight until the end”- Jesse Jackson. This concept of staying strong even when something hard and never let someone else get into your head has a direct relationship with Steve Jobs like no other. Steve Jobs shared how his biggest downfalls lead to his greatest peaks during his “Stanford 2005 Commencement Address.” Some may say that Jobs’ successes define him, however it was his challenges that defined him because it erected his love for calligraphy and technology, it fostered his creativity, and taught him to appreciate each day like it was his last. Steve Jobs went to Reed College and dropped out during the first six months because, he thought that college was too expensive and he did not like the classes he was talking at the time. In this quote Jobs explains what success had resulted from being a college
Once his intelligence finishes diminishing, Charlie writes his final progress report, saying “I dont want Miss Kinnian to feel sorry for me. Evry body feels sorry at the factery and I dont want that eather” (Keyes 209). Unknown to Charlie, many of his coworkers and friends had already reached the conclusion that he would ineluctably die. Not wanting them to feel guilty for him, he moves to a different city in hopes of new beginnings and never saw them again. Some may discredit this point by stating that Charlie’s surgery would improve future scientific understanding.

Steve Jobs’ obsession didn’t end here, it even grew bigger. He soon founded a company which is Apple after various obstacles. It also connects with my father, who was also in situation similar to Steve Jobs. My father was obsessed with managing and engineering when he was in high school.

On the other hand they were different where De Vinci was an individual contributor whereas Steve Jobs worked with another individuals and made something extraordinary out of it. Da Vinci’s work of art would be remembered after a thousand years and Steve Jobs’ work might be remembered by few. De Vinci had paranoid behavioral qualities, for example, he wrote all his ideas and plans in a journal and carried it around with him everywhere as he always thought that someone would steal his ideas as there weren’t copy write laws at that time but Steve Jobs left behind a notebook with the development plans for Apple for the next four years. Also De Vinci was multifaceted as he was skilled in many different areas and employed an empirical method (Adams) while Steve Jobs was specialized in Science Technology and had an aesthetic style (Wolf,
Wozniak is the valve of Apple (1 and 2) and he repeated the same with everyone who worked with them in various fields. People are very focused on joining their team and trying to control them in all possible ways and most was by drawing a beautiful dream unrealistic for the future, and attracted to him and then if he felt that control over them will not go out of their best, personal control of them in their way of thinking was rid of them directly Which shows that Steve did not forgive anyone who abused him or challenged him, but tried to destroy them and revenge from them and those stories I knew for the first time from this book is not the reason for his hostility to Adobe and the lack of support and support Flash (Flash) (Apple and iPad), the reason was that Adobe was asked to provide copies of Adobe Premiere, a video editing software for Mac devices in the past, and the company refused because Apple's share could not exceed ( 5%) at that time, and so was the hatred Bill Gates because he was the only person who provides applications (Microsoft Office) for Apple and so had to deal with it To ensure users for its
Born in San Francisco in 1955, adopted Steve Jobs made his impact on America mainly through his confounding of Apple and his products such as the IPhone, IPod, and IPad. Jobs and his partner Steve Wozniak established Apple Computer when Jobs was just twenty one years old, a couple years after he had dropped out of college and quit his job as a video game designer at Atari. Despite a few setbacks Jobs faced with his new company,—one being that he was kicked out for a period of time—he was able to achieve great things. On his own, he was able to establish NeXT, Inc.,—a hardware and software enterprise that was eventually brought out by Apple—purchase an animation studio—that would later become the world famous Pixar, which created films such
Intel in 1994 was a powerhouse of production and innovation. Expanding with new semiconductor plants in Ireland and New Mexico totaling $1.5 billion, as well as planning a $1.3 billion chip plant in Arizona.
