There is not a lot of documented history on the Charolais breed, but it is said that they originated from west-central to southeastern France. Charolais are a Breed of taurine beef cattle from the Charolais area surrounding Charolles, in Burgundy, in eastern France. Although there is not a lot to be found about the Charolais breed it must have been developed from cattle found in the area. Legend has it that white cattle were first noticed in the region as early as 878 A.D., and by the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were well and favorably known in French markets (Oklahoma State University). Cattleman can agree that they are a terrific source of beef and are used in many south Texas beef operations.
Her mother was granted automatic U.S. citizenship as all Puerto Ricans are, however due to her social status and not knowing English many “real” Americans did not consider her a citizen. Once she perfected her English she was considered everything but a Puerto Rican. For instance, Algranati states “My mother is what people call a “white Hispanic. With her blonde hair and blue eyes my mother was taken for everything but a Puerto Rican” (146). This goes to show that most individuals will jump to conclusions before even speaking to you. Experiences that she and her family have experienced have changed the perception she has of herself. Being mistaken for various ethnicities has really made her doubt who she actually is. Algranati states “Possessing light hair and blue eyes, I am generally perceived as the “all American” girl. Occasionally I have been mistaken for Italian since my last name, Algranati, although Sephardic, has a very Italian flair to it” (147). It is because of those perceptions that others have had of her, that has led her to have personal identity issues. Due to those perceptions that people have had on her she consciously or unconsciously has felt isolated from her own ethnic groups. She now feels like she does not belong in a certain group and has difficulties relating any experiences with others. Algranati states “By being diverse I have learned that in a society that is obsessed with classification the only way I will find my place is within myself”

In 1788, Israel Ludlow, Matthias Denman, and Robert Patterson bought 800 acres of land from John Cleves Symmes along the Ohio River at the mouth of Licking River. John had purchased 2,000,000 acres of land from the Confederation Congress in 1787 and hoped to become rich by selling parts of the purchase to others. By early January 1789, Israel had planned out the town, dividing it into two types of lots. Israel, Matthias, and Robert provided the first 30 settlers with two free lots, one of each type. The men named the town Losantiville. The town grew slowly at first. Settlers had constructed twenty cabins and one frame house. Eleven families and two dozen single men lived on the land. Eventually it increased in size.
Jeannette walls is the posterchild of outward social conformity. Born into a family ill-equipped to raise children, Walls was forced to find strength within herself in order to survive the chaos that her childhood entailed. Walls begins her memoir with her first memory at the age of three. She describes standing above the stove and watching herself catch on fire. Later when she is at the hospital her father comes in to do the "skedaddle" in order to avoid paying hospital fees. This is symbolic of the type of upbringing Walls endured. As a kid, Jeannette was daring and venturesome. Her impulsivity was fueled by her free spirited mother, Rose Walls, and her independant father, Rex Walls.
Jeannette Walls is a critically-acclaimed author (of both biographies and works of fiction), despite her unorthodox upbringing. Her parents supported giving their children excessive amounts of freedom, even though they were clearly too young to be taking care of themselves, causing Walls to light herself on fire while cooking herself a meal at only 3 years old. Also, they did not believe in proper treatment, hence why they force Jeannette to leave the hospital, although she is not finished with treatment, and still had third-degree burns all over her body. Considering her father would waste all of their money on cigarettes and alcohol, there were periods of her life where she was homeless, and would have to sleep in a cardboard box, that of which she shared with her three other siblings (and this is if they were lucky; otherwise, they would be forced to sleep in their car). However, a young Jeannette’s father would manipulate her into thinking it was “an adventure,” causing her to get

Attached is a mid-point update on Terry Scholars fulfillment of their commitments with our office. They are sorted by the peer mentors (PM) assigned, which also denotes the Scholars College. The PM’s take notes when they meet for appointments and have brought a few scholars to me when they felt the student needed additional assistance.

We’re working one-on-one with two scholars for ongoing academic mentoring and when we know we have three scholars with children and/or commuting and the mentors have been very flexible with meeting them around the TS schedule, even before or after hours.

The beginning of her essay Deluca compares how society would rather "add" friends from Facebook than avoid awkward face to face communication. Then she states the most important variable in any profile, and that is the profile picture.
