Cornelius Vanderbilt, and John D. Rockefeller are both labeled as robber barons. Robber barons is a term that means that they stole and were granted special rights, so that they could create monopolies in their fields.

One of the most famous people in the world is not Nicolas Steno, Cleisthenes, or Elisha Kane. It is Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Co, NeXT, and Pixar, whose ideas change the world in which we live in today. He explains 3 stories that he has gone through in his life about connecting the dots, doing what he loves, and to live everyday as it was your last. Within Jobs’ commencement address to Stanford University it illustrates the ideas about living life and doing what you love is inspiring, his view about living a quality life is idealistic and overly simplistic.
“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.

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

Several Americans depend on technological jobs; thus, if people no longer purchased electronics, many Americans will no longer be able to sustain their job.

Understanding that both articles had great reasoning I believe that a raise in the minimum wage can have a negative impact in our economy and that it should be something that shouldn’t be completely abolished but carefully monitored. Like stated in Minimum Wage Laws Are Immoral and Harmful, not all employees will give their full effort in the workplace because they won’t need to worry about getting a raise.

Michael Prestwich in his book Medieval People courageously attempts to encapsulate in few pages the early life, as well as the contribution of the Pope Urban II in the reform of the Catholic church and the creation of the first crusades, yet he fails to quote the Pope himself with regard to his speech with the reference to the Christian Holy War against Islam.
