Although Webb had already hired another singer for his band (Charlie Linton), he too was impressed by Ella’s talent. Because of this, and despite her “gawky and unkempt” appearance, he gave her the opportunity to sing with his band at a dance at Yale University as a test run. Webb was quoted for saying that “if the kids like her, she stays”. She was a raging success and true to his promise, Chick hired Ella to travel with the band. She recorded “Love and Kisses” with the band in 1935 and was soon a regular artist at the Savoy, one of Harlem’s hottest nightclubs.
He never received the recognition he thought he deserved.He spent half his life in unofficial retirement. Franklin arrived in Philadelphia in 1723 practically penniless, but over the next two decades he became enormously wealthy as a print shop owner, land speculator and publisher of the popular “Poor Richard’s Almanack.” By 1748, the 42-year-old was rich enough to hang up his printer’s apron and become a “gentleman of leisure.” Franklin’s retirement allowed him to spend his remaining 42 years studying science and devising inventions such as the lightning rod, bifocal glasses and a more efficient heating stove. It also gave him the freedom to devote himself to public service..He died on April 17,1790.
Being from a pure Vietnamese family, my parents like to take me and my little brother to Vietnam for vacationing and to visit my mother’s side every few years if the money allows it. The last trip being several years ago when I was in middle school. Unlike other households, my mom’s family was well developed. Their two story home was located in the moderately large city of Quy Nhon, housing my grandma, my mom’s brother and two sisters, and several of my cousins. Nobody there had an outstanding career with high salary; just lots of hours, hard work, and sweat.
Due to the one-child policy enforced by Chinese government, I was the only child of my parents. Sometimes I felt lonely. But, fortunately, I had some good friends who grown up with me.

I have made friends that I will cherish for a lifetime. My favorite dance I have ever participated in would easily be the dad’s dance. This is the one time every year that I get to share what means the most to me with the people that mean the most to me- my family. My dad has always been there for me, and the second I asked him if he would dance with me on stage, he easily said yes. Maybe it was my irresistible puppy eyes or my non stop rebarbative begging; either way, I had him hooked.
Judgement (40 marks) In my opinion I enjoyed this dance as the costume, lighting and props usage was really good and I have a keen fascination with the Japanese culture. I like this dance as in just three minutes, the choreographer was able to portray a woman turning mad due to her loss of her husband. The way she bend and fling her hands draws out her inner anguish and emotions which I could feel. Usually geisha dances hairstyles would be in a ‘pumpkin shape’ but in Sayuri’s case her hair was messy and unkempt, her way or dancing was also unlike the usual geisha style which was clean and precise. Her way of dancing was slightly different than the usual kind, therefore I enjoyed it.
